Bulging disc in his back. :mad:

I know its a back injury but hopefully it isn't too severe Rather him be injured now and be healthy for the playoffs.

Assuming we make it there :lol

NY Newsday:

The Knicks' season got even crazier Monday when the team announced that forward Amar'e Stoudemire will be out "indefinitely" after an MRI discovered a bulging disc in his back.
The news is a potentially devastating blow to the Knicks as they head into the final month of the season fighting to hang on to the eighth and final playoff spot. Stoudemire was not with the Knicks last night as they won a critical game against the ninth-place Milwaukee Bucks. Instead, he flew to Miami to get a second medical opinion.
"Amar'e is a big part of what we do," Knicks coach Mike Woodson said when asked about the impact of Stoudemire's absence. "All we can do is hope it's not as serious as it may be and that he has a speedy recovery."

In the seven games Stoudemire has missed opponents have scored 89.4 points per game and shot 40.7 percent from the floor.

In the 43 games Stoudemire has played, the Knicks are five games under .500 (19-24). Opponents average more than 95 points per game and shoot better than 44 percent from the floor.

Stoudemire's plus-minus rating this season is -47. The only player on the Knicks with a worse plus-minus is Mike Bibby at -77.

Stats like this are what fuels bandwagon fans to say "trade *insert player*"
Look at the sample sets. One is 7 games. The other is 43. C'mon now:crazysam:

Back specialist dealing with bulging disks says #Knicks have nuff time to get Stoudemire back for Round 1 http://t.co/1RvQnlkZ

NBA New York Knicks ‏ @nyknicks
#Knicks Injury Update: Amar'e will return from Miami today and will undergo non-surgical treatment. He will be out approx. 2-4 weeks.

Hopefully we can make the playoffs without Amare and have him ready for Round 1.

He will be physically hampered when he returns and will revert back to STATue defense. I for one would rather see him come off the bench when the postseason starts.

Re: Amar'e is out indefinitely with bulging disc in back
 
Amare won't be anywhere close to 100%. His back will be a lingering issue when he returns and it will limit his effectiveness. I envision Lin and Jeffries returning at full strength and the Knicks making a run as an even more cohesive defensive unit.

No need to throw a physically limited Amare into an intense playoff series as a starter.

Re: Amar'e is out indefinitely with bulging disc in back
 
They should have traded this bum when they had the chance. This happened last season, now this season, and now his trade stock is going to the dump heap. He is injury prone, plays no defense, and is not a good rebounder. And this is what we're stuck with.
