Found October 30, 2012 on Sports-Glory:
The New York Knicks will be without power forward Amar'e Stoudemire for at least 6-8 weeks after he re-injured his surgically repaired left knee, according to ESPN. The news comes as a blow to the Knicks, who initially expected Stoudemire to return within two to three weeks after he ruptured a popliteal cyst behind the knee during the Knicks' exhibition game against Toronto on Oct. 19. But after Stoudemire received a second opinion over the weekend from Dr. Thomas Carter, thePhoenix Suns team doctor, it was determined he would need more time to heal. Carter performed microfracture surgery on Stoudemire's left knee in 2005. It is not clear whether Stoudemire will use the extra time off to have a procedure or for rest and rehab. The Knicks will likely play Carmelo Anthony or Kurt Thomas at power forward. The Knicks season-opener is Thursday in Brooklyn against the Nets.
