Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire is expected to miss the start of the regular season because of a left knee injury.
The Knicks said Stoudemire returned to New York on Sunday to get his left knee re-evaluated and an MRI revealed a ruptured benign cyst. He is expected to miss two to three weeks.
Stoudemire had played in only one preseason game, sitting out the first two because of a bruised left knee. He scored 18 points Friday against Toronto in 27 minutes, then sat out again Saturday against Boston in Albany, N.Y. The Knicks practiced Sunday in Syracuse, where they play Philadelphia on Monday.
The Knicks open their regular season Nov. 1 against Brooklyn.

Blown Out by Raptors in Montreal
The Knicks struggled tonight against the Toronto Raptors, getting blown out most of the game after a very strong first quarter eventually falling 107-88 to the Raptors. The Knicks struggled with continuity and had a lot of lapses on the defensive end, leading to easy baskets for the opposition.

Knicks vs 76ers Pre Game:
The Knicks are once again shorthanded. Yes, we get to see the debut of Ronnie Brewer at the shooting guard position and yes, this will be Carmelo Anthony’s return to the Carrier Dome on the campus of Syracuse University.
I, for one, do not want the major excuse for this season to become the fact that Carmelo and Amar’e have not had a full training...
I don’t know who Chris Copeland is, but I sincerely hope there is only one of him in the NBA, or the Celtics are going have their hands full defensively much more often than we would like.Copeland ripped apart the Celtics again, dropping 34 points on a variety of defenders.
