Knicks Injury News: Amar'e Stoudemire With Ruptured Cyst in Left Knee

New York Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire will be out for the next two to three weeks with a ruptured cyst in his left knee. This will mean that he will miss the opener against the Brooklyn Nets. Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today reports that the injury was found through an MRI.
The issue was discovered after an MRI in New York on Sunday morning. Knicks coach Mike Woodson told news reporters that Stoudemire is "frustrated."
He also goes on to give a brief explanation of a popliteal cyst
The popliteal cyst, also known as a Baker's cyst, is a "fluid-filled cyst that causes a bulge and a feeling of tightness behind your knee" and "usually the result of a problem with your knee joint such as arthritis," according to www.mayoclinic.com.
Amar'e had already missed the first two preseason games due to a bruised left knee but debuted in a game against the Raptors before sitting out the game against the Celtics. The blow will be that he won't be there for the hyped opener against the Brooklyn Nets, who've dragged the Knicks into a rivalry, despite if they are fans do not see it yet.

Amar'e has had a history of injuries, and as saddening as it is, it shou;dn't be too much a surprise that he suffered another one, to his knee nonetheless.
