Amare's injury is nowhere near Shumpert's. He's been playing great in the limited minutes that he gets.
I think part of the reason that Amare doesn't start is that we don't have enough big men, and he wants Amare to back up center. In which case we have to make some roster adjustments and get someone else that can defend and rebound. Regardless of the lack of bigs, he should get more minutes that he is getting, and he should be featured over Felton. That's a no brainer.
