Knicks big man Amar’e Stoudemire sprained his ankle in Thursday’s game against the Lakers, and according to the NY Post, it’ll keep him out against the Kings Saturday night: “Amar’e Stoudemire is out for tonight’s game at Sacramento with a sprained left ankle, according to a person familiar with the situation.The Knicks have not made it official but Stoudemire is expected to miss his season’s first game when the Knicks conclude their California trip vs. the Knicks at 8 p.m. Stoudemire sprained his ankle Thursday in the fourth quarter in LA after rolling to the basket off a pick and getting hit by a Lakers player. Stoudemire tumbled to the court and left the game. Stoudemire did not practice yesterday and was receiving ‘a bombardment of treatment.’ But with the Knicks back home Monday vs. Toronto, the Knicks will give Stoudemire a rest. Stoudemire has said during training camp he may miss a few games to rest his bumps and bruises because of the condensed 66-game schedule. The Knicks will play their third game in four nights tonight.”
