Metta World Peace believes that he is ready to play for the New York Knicks again following a month out with a knee injury.

Metta World Peace has insisted that he is ready to play for the New York Knicks, should he be called upon in the near future.

The 34-year-old hasn't appeared for the Knicks since December 28 due to a knee injury, but he claims that he can contribute for the team once again following his recovery.

"I still can score, still put people on the block. I can still play and that's all I focus on, is playing," World Peace told reporters. "I don't coach, I play.

"Whether I get 0.8 seconds or two seconds, I'm ready. Whether I get 30 minutes, it doesn't matter. I'm ready."

World Peace joined New York on a two-year deal in July.
