Stoudemire Punches Glass, Injures Hand
Paramedics were rushed into the Knicks locker room moments after their 104-94 loss to the Heat last night in Game 2 after Amar’e Stoudemire punched the glass-enclosed fire extinguisher in the hallway leading to the dressing room.
Stoudemire received multiple stitches and the Knicks called it a “lacerated’’ left hand as the Knicks’ mess went from bad to unthinkable at AmericanAirlines Arena as Stoudemire could be gone for the series and almost assuredly is out for Thursday’s Game 3 at the Garden. Yes, the Knicks seem cursed.
The Knicks officially said his status for Game 3 is uncertain, pending further evaluation. But Tyson Chandler said, “He’s probably going to be out [Thursday]. I don’t know how bad it is. Amar’e is a huge piece to this team. Without him, it’ll make it more difficult. We already lost one player [Iman Shumpert]. That’s two players out of the starting lineup.’’
