The Knicks haven’t had Amar’e Stoudemire at full strength for either of their first-round exits in the last two years, and even he acknowledges that he’s “injury prone.”
Carmelo Anthony returned to the New York Knicks’ lineup on Wednesday night against the Orlando Magic.
What is interesting is that many fans, and even many in the media, still minimize the impact of injuries, especially those not requiring surgery. Is it the money that players make that pushes people to feel that athletes should just play through pain?
The Knicks have a very difficult 17 games remaining on their schedule, but if they play as hard as they did on Monday night and with the same commitment to defense, they can be very good.
The Knicks said that All-Star center Tyson Chandler is expected to miss about a week, and Kurt Thomas will be sidelined for at least two as injuries continue to plague their frontcourt.
In many ways the Knicks control their own destiny. Fans can either take solace in that, or panic even more.
17 days. Eight games. All on the road. Monday night starts the defining portion of the Nets’ schedule.
Without Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler, the depleted Knicks were beaten by the Clippers 93-80.
The Knicks have signed Kenyon Martin for the remainder of the season.
On Wednesday, Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire added Tyson Chandler to their knee support group. Three of the team’s highest-paid players have knees that are not providing an adequate return on investment.
The game is over. Knee, you win. Please, please, leave the Knicks alone. They’ve had enough. Mercy, please.
If Stoudemire doesn’t nearly singlehandedly return the Knicks to respectability in 2010, does Carmelo Anthony demand a trade to the Knicks? I think not, but there’s no way to know for sure.
There’s plenty of speculation the oft-injured Stoudemire could be done for good. But the 30-year-old refuses to see it that way.
Carmelo Anthony says his troublesome right knee is “so-so.”
The anticipated six week loss of Amar’e Stoudemire has been met with wide skepticism.
