Re: Amare Stoudemire out again, needs knee surgery, out 6 weeks
That would put Stoudemire out until the first or second round of the playoffs. Stoudemire had an MRI this afternoon and he elected to have the surgery. He didn't attend today's shootaround because of two sore knees stemming from the increased amount of minutes he played the last three games.
"He's been very efficient with how he's been playing,'' said a dejected Mike Woodson. "I feel for Amar'e. He put a lot of work in this summer to get back onthe court. Now he's got to go back in again. I feel for him as a young man because he's put in so much hard work. But we have to go on.''
Stoudemire surpassed the medical staff’s 30-minute cap twice during the two-game Rust Belt trip for the first time this season. Stoudemire did stay under the cap vs. Oklahoma City Friday.
