Amare Stoudemire to miss 2-3 weeks


Amare Stoudemire will be out two to three weeks with a ruptured popliteal cyst in his left knee, the New York Knicks announced after Sunday afternoon's practice at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse.


Stoudemire returned to New York City Sunday morning to get a reevaluation of his knee, where he suffered a bone bruise on Oct. 10 during practice. An MRI then revealed the latest injury.

The left knee is the same one he had microfracture surgery on in Oct. 2005, when he was a member of the Phoenix Suns. While he missed basically the entire 2005-06 campaign, he came back stronger as ever in the following seasons.


Stoudemire has indeed been no stranger to injuries. He's had chronic knee problems, a partially detached retina in his right eye and lower back issues, which started in the 2011 NBA playoffs and continued toward the end of last season.


Stoudemire was said to be in top shape coming into the season, hardly missing a routine of two-a-days during the summer. Also, Mike Woodson has raved about Stoudemire's conditioning level in training camp.


Now, once again, the Knicks will be without their starting power forward during a key stretch -- this time starting on Nov. 1 to tip off the season, which includes matchups against the Brooklyn Nets, Miami Heat and Philadelphia 76ers (twice).


The Knicks first face the Sixers on Monday night at the Carrier Dome, where Carmelo Anthony led the Orange to the 2003 NCAA championship.

Did he try to break glass with his knee instead of hand this time?

Guess it's good they have 6 40 year olds to back him up. Bet they didn't think they'd be seeing starters minutes already.

He was expected to have a bounce back year this season, this may change things especially if other players start to get it going early and take away some touches from Amare. He'll only be missing about two weeks of the season however, so hopefully he'll be able to stay healthy.

With a grain of salt: My niece is studying to be a Doctor of Physical Therapy.

She said this kind of thing can be very serious. If these cysts burst and are not taken care of immediately, they can create compartmental syndrome. That means that if the problem persists, all of the issues can be stuck within an area of his leg and be extremely difficult to treat. At least that's what she just told me.

^ With all the medical care surrounding Amare I'm sure they found the cyst early on, but it' definitely something they need to take care of and not rush him back.

Yeah I mean I'm sure he'll be fine eventually, just a little bit of insight on how this can affect him if they're not careful.
