Amare Stoudemire has reportedly punched a fire extinguisher casing outside the Knicks locker room immediately following his sides loss to the Miami Heat in Game 2 of the Playoffs today. It’s been said that Stoudemire left the venue with his left hand heavily bandaged and the news that he had received stitches.
The New York Knicks have confirmed Amare Stoudemire will miss at least 2 possibly 4 weeks of action. With a month left in the regular season and the Knicks playoff hopes hanging by a thread this is a huge blow.
Amare will undergo non-surgical treatment and rehabilitation for bulging discs in his back. New York Coach Woodson has said of Stoudemire “He’s a big piece of this puzzle,” the coach said. “But I want him to be healthy when he comes back and not (to) come back trying to play hurt. That’s the most important thing.”
