The New York Knicks frontcourt is already battling injuries as Amar'e Stoudemire is out with an ailing left knee, Tyson Chandler is treating a left-knee bone bruise and Marcus Camby is out until at least Tuesday with a calf strain. Knicks power forward Amar'e Stoudemire spent Friday in the team's Westchester campus treatment room and will reportedly have his MRI exam looked at by Suns orthopedist for a second opinion.   “I have been speaking to him,’’ Tyson Chandler said. “My whole thing is for him to stay mentally strong right now. I know he wants to be out there. It’s more important to have him out there healthy. Right now we got to keep his spirits up.’’ Stoudemire had micro-fracture surgery in 2005 on his right knee.   Chandler has said he will "absolutely" be playing Tuesday in Brooklyn for the season opener.   Chandler's MRI exam on his left-knee bone bruise shows no structural damage to his ligaments.  He plans to return to practice Monday. “I’m doing good, good news all the way around, looking forward to being back on the floor with my teammates,’’ Chandler said. “I’m hoping I can get back on the floor Monday. I just got to take it easy the next couple of days, let it come down a little bit.’’ Marcus Camby will likely not play in the season opener and wont be back to practice until Tuesday.  He has been out for the last four weeks. The Knicks frontcout rotation for the season opener will consist of Chandler, Rasheed Wallace, Kurt Thomas
