Amare Stoudemire out six weeks with knee injury, needs surgery

New York Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire will miss approximately six weeks with a knee injury that will require surgery, the team announced Saturday. The Knicks made the announcement before they took on the Utah Jazz at Madison Square Garden.

The Knicks said that Stoudemire would need to undergo a knee debridement surgery, a procedure to remove dead or damaged tissue or bone in order to heal the injured area. It's the same procedure he underwent before the season started, which caused him to miss the first two months of the season.

If Stoudemire does miss six weeks, that would keep him out past the end of the regular season on April 17.

The Knicks are also dealing with an injury to star forward Carmelo Anthony, who has missed two straight games with what the Knicks say is a stiff and sore right knee after he was hurt Monday at Cleveland.

Stoudemire was out with his first knee injury until Jan. 1 this season. He was averaging 14.2 points and five rebounds, coming off the bench in all 29 games he played.
