Amar’e Stoudemire Out Indefinitely With Bulging Disk

The New York Knicks announced today that starting power forward Amar’e Stoudemire will be out indefinitely with a bulging disk in his spine. Matt Moore of CBS Sports has what few details are available: “The rollercoaster season for the Knicks continued and Amar’e Stoudemire’s troubled injury history took another entry Monday as the Knicks announced that Stoudemire is out “indefinitely” with a bulging disc in his spine. Stoudemire suffered the injury during the Knicks’ blowout win over Detroit Saturday. Initially, Stoudemire told reporters he felt it wasn’t too bad, but the pain worsened and the Knicks forward had an MRI performed Monday…Coach Mike Woodson told reporters before the Knicks’ game agianst Milwaukee Monday that it’s unclear if Stoudemire will be back for the playoffs.”

    Well, here’s Orange’s excuse for when the Knicks miss the playoffs/don’t win the championship

    Wow Justin that’s ignorant.

  • ripslam

    Isn’t this the same injury that kept Baron Davis out for 2 months?

  • crooklyn

    Dag, and he was just starting to put it together, playing better. Get well soon Amare’, your health is definitely more important than any games, especially back problems

  • Mike From Spain

    Amar’e is not my favourite player but injuries suck big time. I hope he gets well soon, and that the Knicks finally catch a break

  • Justin G.

    Red, that doesn’t even make sense. But good try

    If the Knicks dont make the playoffs they have to get the award for “most overhyped team to not make the playoffs (even in the East!)”

    Knicks vs Bulls would be fun though, even if they get demolished in 5.

    This is why you don’t leave the Suns. The medical team they have there are sorcerers.

  • RickyRude

    Hope you get better Amar’e. God bless ya.

    THe Knicks are stupid for giving him $100M dollars uninsured. If the Medical staff in Phoenix says they can’t help him and he should not be insured, then the medical staff in every other city should just smile and nod. There isn’t going to be a better second opinion then whatever Phoenix’s staff gives.
