The point is though......all teams have injuries.
But normally teams don't guarantee deals with already known issues.
They should have been on top of this from day 1. The Suns offered Amar'e a 3 year contract because they knew this would be the year the knee might need more work. This was public information. The Knicks' doctors should have been monitoring the knee every day. There's $100 million invested in him. It should be their damn priority that he stays as healthy as possible.
