The Suns are reporting that Amar’e Stoudemire underwent successful eye surgery this morning to repair a partially detached retina. He was poked in the eye during his 42-point outburst against the Clippers this past Wednesday. Not a good season for the SLAM blogger’s eyes, to say the least. The Suns will have a tough time making a Playoff push with Shaq still sitting out back-to-backs and the team getting used to a new coach.
