Stoudemire Out 2-3 Weeks with Knee Cyst
The Knicks will begin the regular season without Amar’e Stoudemire and could open with Carmelo Anthony at power forward.
Stoudemire is expected to miss two to three weeks with a ruptured popliteal cyst in his troublesome left knee. He felt discomfort in the knee Saturday night and flew home Sunday morning for an MRI that revealed the issue.
“It’s sad,” (Carmelo) Anthony said after practice at the Carrier Dome. “Hopefully it’s nothing too serious. Mentally, I’m just sad for him. It seems like he can’t catch a break.”
