Amare Stoudemire will be out of the Knicks line up with a bulging disk in his back. Ouch. Now this wouldn’t be a huge issue if it hadn’t been for the fact that Stat was finally getting in a groove. But alas, Stoudemire has finally decided to join the Knicks lineup and become productive. Now however his year is up in the air, especially if the Knickerbockers can’t extent their season to the playoffs. And his replacement? Well he is injured as well.


Jared Jeffries would normally move into the spot that Stoudemire has left unoccupied. Jeffries however is still out of commission for at least another week with a bum knee. So that leaves the White mambas Josh Harrelson and the ever dangerous Steve Novak. Expect Harrelson, affectionately referred to as Jorts,(apparently he liked to wear jean shorts in college) to start while Stat is out. Novak of course will continue his dominance coming off the bench. Jeremy Lin is also out for tonights game against the Magic. Woo, this injury bug is spreading.
