Phoenix Suns forward/center Amarč Stoudemire underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee at Banner Samaritan Outpatient Surgical Center this morning.

Team orthopedic surgeon Dr. Thomas Carter performed the procedure to remove debris caused by wear and tear of the knee cap. The resulting inflammation led to the development of a Baker’s cyst and associated pressure behind the joint. No isolated defect was found and the cyst was aspirated.

The 23-year-old will be on crutches 7-10 days and his return to court activities is estimated to take six to eight weeks. He will not return this season.

InsideHoops.com Editor Says: All the best to Amare. I hope he can somehow be as awesome as he was before getting hurt. I hate to say it, but I worry he'll never be as explosive as he once was. Which would be sad for the whole basketball world, not just Suns fans. Hopefully he'll fully recover and be as good as new by the start of next season. As for the team, without Amare the Suns are still extremely good, but a notch below the Spurs and Pistons.
