    Default Breaking: Stoudemire Update

    Doc preaches patience with Knicks' Stoudemire

    The Knicks would be wise to have a conservative approach with ailing Amar’e Stoudemire and have him ready to go for the playoffs instead of rushing him back sooner, according to one medical expert on bulging disks.
    Stoudemire sought a second opinion Tuesday night in Miami after the Knicks announced Monday he would undergo non-surgical treatment and be out “indefinitely.’’ People familiar with the situation said having Stoudemire ready for Round 1, which begins at the end of April, is the club’s goal.
    Dr. Wellington Hsu , a back specialist at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago who specializes in sports medicine, told The Post a common procedure to treat bulging disks for pro athletes is an epidural steroid injection in addition to oral anti-inflammatory medication.

    That treatment conceivably could get Stoudemire back on the court in as fast as 10 days, but Hsu said it would be unwise. According to Hsu, back-strengthening, rehab exercises to increase power in the core over a four-week period is the likeliest course to give Stoudemire a chance of not being prone to reinjuring it.

    This from Alan Hahn's via Twitter....
    • #Knicks official statement on Amar'e Stoudemire: "Amar'e will return to New York from Miami, FL today after seeking a second opinion on a bulging disc of his lower back. Both doctors have agreed that he should undergo non-surgical treatment and rehabilitation, that will include an epidural. He is expected to be out for approximately 2-4 weeks."

    He could get in one regular season game before the playoffs if all goes according to plan then.

    ^If that would be the plan I'd see him taking about 15-20 minutes in that game to just test the back and then rest up for the series.

    All of that, however, is dependent upon JLIN, Melo and TC bringing this team into the playoffs at all. Bucks just won convincingly against the Hawks and pulled within 2. This next game with the Magic is huge.

    Having to face these next 4 weeks without STAT is going to be a real test for these Knicks. MELO has to find his scoring touch. JLIN needs to limit turnovers and play SMART. TC needs to stay healthy above all else and continue to direct the defense.

    We can live without offensive production from STAT as long as MELO steps up to his career game numbers and we get good things out of our young players. This is the time for guys like Jorts, Lin, Shumpert and Landry to step up and show what they are made of. It is encouraging to me that our 2nd unit outplayed our top unit for a long time and that depth will keep us competitive.
