A message board at the Knicks practice facility in Greenburgh, N.Y., says that Amar'e Stoudemire is receiving treatment from home for a pulled muscle in his back Thursday morning and will not practice with the team.

Stoudemire, who played just 18 minutes on Tuesday in Game 2, is likely to play in Game 3 on Friday night.
