Earlier this evening, the New York Knicks announced that forward Amar’e Stoudemire will be out for six weeks due to a procedure he is getting done on his right knee. Stoudemire didn’t play until January this year as a result of getting the same procedure done on his left knee.
Forward Amar’e Stoudemire is scheduled to have a right knee debridement this coming week. He is expected to miss approximately six weeks.

If he takes the full six weeks to recover, Stoudemire will miss the remainder of the regular season. The injury is another blow for the Knicks, who are already missing Carmelo Anthony.
Over 29 games this year, Stoudemire has averaged 14 points and 5 assists in 23 minutes a game, while coming off the bench.
