Opening day of the 2012 NBA Playoffs was not only an exciting day full of great match-ups but was also a heartbreaking, season-ending day for 2 players.
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.”
