New York Knicks forward, Amare Stoudemire, will miss 2-3 weeks with a knee injury. The injury is being described as a ruptured popliteal cyst behind his left knee. The injury and time off was announced by the Knicks, following practice on Sunday. Stoudemire first injured his knee earlier in October during a practice session. The latest MRI he had on the knee to track the progress of the original injury, revealed the ruptured cyst.
Stoudemire, who has long been plagued with injuries, actually showed up to this year’s camp in the best shape of his career. Coaches and players were raving about his conditioning and he participated fully in all pre-season practice sessions. Stoudemire will likely miss important games vs. the Brooklyn Nets, Miami Heat, and Philadelphia 76ers to start off the season.
