Mike Woodson Unhappy With Amar’e Stoudemire During Rehab

by March 28, 2013

Amar’e Stoudemire is talking to everyone through TV appearances about his rehab from a right knee procedure. Well, everyone except his coach, who’s not happy with the lack of communication. Per the NY Post: “Stoudemire has made a couple of TV appearances in the last two days in which he said his rehab is going well. Stoudemire is holding a press call today to promote a documentary of his life: ‘Amar’e Stoudemire: In the Moment.’ At this moment, Stoudemire’s out. A press release Wednesday said it will air on the eve of the playoffs and will include footage of his most recent rehab from his most recent right knee surgery. It’s odd timing that Stoudemire went on national TV yesterday to promote the documentary and make a bold claim about his rehab. ‘It’s going well,’ Stoudemire said on ESPN’s SportsCenter. ‘It’s two weeks in now, so I’ve been able to really recover [and] feel the improvement daily, and I just hope that continues to be the case.’ […] ‘He’s been on TV?,’ Woodson said before the Knicks’ 108-101 victory over the Grizzlies Wednesday night at the Garden. ‘News to me. I need to tell him to stay off the TV and talk to the coach. I really don’t know. I don’t know what the timetable is on Amar’e. If he’s telling you the rehab is going well, it’s a good sign. How close to playing, I don’t know.'”
