Stoudemire under the knife
Amare Stoudemire will undergo exploratory arthrosopic surgery on his knee tomorrow, Tuesday, October 11, after getting medical opinions from three different specialists.
What seems clear is that the Suns wanted one of these doctors to tell them that surgery was not necessary--they were disappointed. Here's the kicker: if nothing is detected, Amare will be out three to four weeks. Ahhhhhhhhh!!!
The real problem is that something probably will be detected. The Suns and the doctors believe something is wrong; otherwise they would not be doing the surgery.
No word on what the recovery time will be if something is wrong, and further surgery is required, but it could be nearly half the season. Owners should feel very uncomfortable taking Amare in the first round.
You know what the worst part is? I have a draft tomorrow.
