Amar’e Stoudemire To Miss Season Opener, Out 2-3 Weeks

Amar’e Stoudemire has been limited to 1 pre-season game because of a bruised left knee, after bumping knees in practice. The team announced today that Stoudemire will now miss 2-3 additional weeks after an MRI revealed a ruptured cyst in the back of his left knee on Sunday. 

According to the NY Post:

Amar’e Stoudemire left the Knicks on Sunday to get an MRI that revealed a ruptured cyst on the back of his left knee. The affliction is known as a Baker’s cyst.

Stoudemire will be out two to three weeks and miss the season opener in Brooklyn on Nov. 1.

 Although he will not need surgery, the required treatment is rest, he will miss what Gerald Wallace is calling “one of the biggest games in NBA history”, the season opener, vs. the Nets.
