And just like that, Stoudemire out 2-3 weeks
Amar'e Stoudemire will miss up to five regular season games, including the anticipated season opener in Brooklyn, after an MRI revealed a ruptured cyst behind his left knee.
Knicks coach Mike Woodson told reporters after practice Sunday that Stoudemire is out 2-to-3 weeks for the latest setback in the forward's oft-injured career. Without Stoudemire, Woodson could elect to use Carmelo Anthony at power forward against smaller lineups - although Woodson started Kurt Thomas in two preseason games while Stoudemire sat with a bruised knee.
