Amar'e Stoudemire did not suffer ligament or tendon damage when he cut his hand punching a pane of glass Monday night but will not be able to play another game in the New York Knicks opening round playoffs against the Miami Heat reported The New York Post.

Sources said that, because the size of the gash and the amount of stitches in Stoudemire's non-shooting hand, the Knicks don't expect the power forward to return for the Heat series or for the playoffs for that matter.

The Knicks are expected to give a medical update later Tuesday on Stoudemire's injury timetable but are preparing to finish the series in which they trail 2-0 without him.  Game 3 is Thursday night at Madison Square Garden.

If the Knicks miraculously advance to the second round, they still have doubts about Stoudemire's return even then.



Stoudemire delivered a punch of frustration at the glass panel of the fire extinguisher box in the hallway  leading back to the locker room right after after the Knicks 104-94 loss in Game 2 at AmericanAirlines Arena.  It left a trail of blood.

One of the reasons the cut was so large and gruesome is because he hit the glass while walking briskly past it and did not stop.  That caused the deeper cuts into the side of his left hand.



Stoudemire visited a hand specialist in New York on Tuesday for a reevaluation.  He reportedly lost a lot of blood as paramedics, the Heat doctors and Knicks medical staff attended to him in the crowded trainer's room inside the arena.

When the Knicks team plane touched down Tuesday morning, Stoudemire tweeted:

"We have all done thing out of anger that we regret.  That makes us human.  Bad timing on my part.  Sorry guys.  This to shall pass."
