Amare Stoudemire Plans To Return To Knicks After Weekend

Amare Stoudemire left the New York Knicks on Monday to be with his family, mourning the loss of his brother, Hazell Stoudemire, and according to Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni, the All-Star forward will be away from the team through this weekend.

"I am humbled by all of the thoughts and prayers I have received," Stoudemire said in a statement, as relayed by ESPN New York. "Thank you for all of the support. I am going to take a few days to be with my family and grieve the loss of my big brother, Hazell Stoudemire. Although it is not clear to me now, I hope to make some good come from our tragedy."

Hazell Stoudemire's funeral is scheduled for Saturday in Lake Wales, Fla. The plan is for Amare to return to the team for practice Monday and then suit up for Tuesday's road game against the Toronto Raptors.

The Knicks are also currently without Carmelo Anthony, who will miss at least a week with a strained groin.
