The New York Knicks have lost Amar’e Stoudemire to a left ankle sprain after another loss, and it is starting to feel like deja vu writing about the Knicks. Forward Kenyon Martin sprained his ankle as well, so the Knicks will not have a lot of depth at the forward position for their next game.
Stoudemire tweeted Friday that he “should be able to return to action in a week or two.”
We will have to see about that given the forward’s injury history, but will try to maintain an open mind. This should not come as great news to Knicks’ fans due simply to the playoff implications; if they are not able to make the playoffs this season, then how likely is it that Carmelo Anthony will want to stay? That is the sword that hangs over this team’s head, and until there is clarity then it will continue to be wishy-washy.
“I’m going to bounce back from this and get back to what I was before. Hopefully I’ll be back sooner than later,” Stoudemire said after Thursday’s game.
Pardon me if we do not hold our breath here at Rant Sports, but this latest news might end up being the beginning of the death rattle for the Knicks. Thanks as always for reading, and just trying to tell the truth.
