    Default Stoudemire Is Expected to Miss Rest of Heat Series

    Amar’e Stoudemire does not have significant damage from smashing his left hand into a fire extinguisher’s glass case shortly after the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] lost Game 2 in Miami on Monday night, but he will miss the remainder of the series against [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], according to a person with direct knowledge of Stoudemire’s status.

    Stoudemire did not sustain any broken bones or tendon, ligament or nerve damage, the person said. The Knicks, who are already battered with injuries and staring at a 2-0 deficit, are expected to issue a formal statement Tuesday afternoon.

    Stoudemire injured his hand in the visiting locker room, and a bizarre scene ensued at the American Airlines Center. Reporters were prevented from entering the locker room for some time and blood was spotted on the carpet. So far the only person to speak on the subject has been Stoudemire, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    While this probably good for us, you don't give a crook brownie points just because he ****s up after the heist and gets caught.

    Epic Fail for Epic Fraudemire.

    Well it is 2 years in a row he's done something stupid to put him out of the playoffs. Last year was the trick dunk during warmups, this year is the punch.

    But he always seems to say the right thing at the right time (I think Crazy8's said that earlier) but his game hasn't been doing much talking. This year he was on about him growing an extra inch (wtf) and is going to beast on people. So presumably next season he'll be 7 foot and 280 pounds.

    Atleast most Knicks fans have an excuse now for our second straight sweep.

    Guys should thank Amar'e for keeping their illusions intact that we are 'the real deal' and playing 'for it all' this season.

    Well guys the truth is hard to take at times, but everything else is called schizophrenic disorder.

    Face it, we're trash again and Miami cooked our asses.

    It was close last year against Boston in games 1 and 2, but this year we look like children playing against men, which is rather embarassing, because the Heat got enough bitches themselves (Bosh, Lebron to anme two).

    But they gave us a good whoopin'.

    When Amar'E was on the court, when Lin played and when Chandler didn't have the flu.

    They beat us comfortably every single time this season.

    Maybe we can finally win a game now

    Melo can be Melo

    Tyson can be Tyson ( i noticed Tyson is more focused on rebounds and locking the paint down when Amare is NOT in the game .... he also draws more fouls)

    i expect the spacing to be legit and the passing to be legit

    This still kind of sucks because Iman is gone

    Overall, I don't think the team is better without Amare but at least they can go back to the last lineup that actually worked. Although it probably won't make any difference against this Heat team, plus we don't have Shump.

    I respect your opinion about the team not being better without Amare.

    I just think we play better as a TEAM, without Amare and i think our defense & Rebounding is also improved.

    I'm one of the few who still just don't see Amare/Melo as a fit together. What i see on the floor is "ok melo here's the ball ill move out the way so you can iso" and "ok stat here its your turn ill get out the way so you can iso next" the court is way to tight for Chandler, Melo & amare. Chandler cant stretch the floor Amare and Melo games are to similar making it easier to guard us.

    I mean whens the last time you've seen Melo and Amare work a pick and roll to perfection or a Lob from Amare to Melo for the easy buckets. It works with Amare at the 5 and Melo at the 4, but we wont win anything like that and we def wont win anything with our 2 stars playing iso ball all series.

    Im watching the Denver vs Laker game last night and im just like damn the way Gasol and Bynum are able to find each other is amazing two Bonafide 7 footers passing the ball fluently to each other taking advantage of their size down low. Then i look back at the Knicks and think to myself.... why cant Chandler and Amare work like that... why cant Amare find a way to lob it to chandler or just toss it up there to wear chandler is able to grab control of the ball for a dunk or layup, i know Chandler is not a offensive threat like Bynum but if he has the ball in a decent position he is going up for the dunk which probably leads to a foul and FT.

    Idk man, i think a stretch 4 would benefit this team better... like "marcus morris" "channing frye" "Barganani" 'illyasova" players that can stretch the floor open as far as to the 3 point line to the point where if you double you pay the price... even like a post up PF "Al jefferson" or "scola" could even fit.

    We played better without Melo and Amare together on the court at the same time. I think he would be better coming off the bench...just to keep other teams on their heels.

    As far as this series goes....we can only win if Landry and Davis have spectacular games. When Shump went down...so did my expectations. All I have now is hope...and a dream that they will do what the Giants did. That dream is slowly being turned into a cup of coffee.

    Team wasn't bad with Melo playing the 4, we won without Stat during the regular season but the Heat are a different animal. They will smother Melo no matter what position he plays.

    I just hope we can win a couple of games in the playoffs and not be 0 for the last 11 years.

    I see Stat says there's a great chance that he'll play in Game 4 now.
