I’m just trying to shed some light on a very negative possible outcome for Amare Stoudemire.
First, let’s take a step back in time. In 2005, while playing for the Phoenix Suns, Amare Stoudemire underwent a microfracture surgery to repair damage to his injured left knee. The Suns were made aware of the injury through an MRI, but resisted surgery at first, resorting to treatment and rest.
Last night, after the Knicks’ 10-point loss to the Miami Heat, Amare Stoudemire punched the metal and glass encasing of a fire extinguisher on his way to the locker room. At the time, the severity of the injury was unknown. The only news to surface was that a large amount of blood stained the carpet in the locker room and JR Smith said that Stoudemire got stitches. As Stoudemire slipped through the security exit, cameras caught his left-hand wrapped up and in a sling.
