Amar’e Stoudemire Out Six Weeks

After only two months back from injury, one of the New York Knicks’ star players is going back on the injured list. Earlier today, the team announced that Amar’e Stoudemire will have a right knee debridement this coming week and should be expected to miss roughly six weeks, putting his timetable for a possible return around when the NBA Playoffs begin on April 20.

Stoudemire is no stranger to this form of surgery, which is an arthroscopic procedure to remove debris. The former All-Star forward had the same procedure done with his left knee in late 2012, which caused him to miss the first two months of this season. Stoudemire had missed shoot-around on Saturday morning, after complaining of soreness in both knees.

This extended stretch of time without Stoudemire will be challenging for the Knicks, but will present the opportunity of more playing time for Kenyon Martin. And let this serve as a friendly reminder that Stoudemire’s five-year contract for around $100 million is uninsured, so have fun with that.
