STOUDEMIRE IS OUT INDEFINITELY
Thu, 29 Mar 2012 01:35 PM EDT

NY Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire is out “indefinitely” after an MRI disclosed a bulging disk in his lower back, the team announced.

He missed Monday’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks. Point guard Jeremy Lin was also out with a sore right knee. He is officially listed as day to day. Baseball scores.

The team announced that Stoudemire will undergo nonsurgical treatment for the back injury and will treat it with rehabilitation. But Coach Mike Woodson didn’t rule out the possibility that Stoudemire could require surgical treatment in times to come.

Stoudemire is searching for a second opinion in Miami.

The Knicks started veteran Baron Davis in place of Lin at point guard. Iman Shumpert, Landry Fields, Anthony and Tyson Chandler rounded out the beginning 5.

Woodson said that Steve Novak and Josh Harrellson will have an increased role with Stoudemire out. Reserve forward Jared Jeffries would also be an applicant for a larger role, but he’s out for a minimum of 2 weeks with a sore right knee.

“We can’t look back,” Woodson said of the Knicks, who entered play at 24-25 and 11/2 games ahead of Milwaukee for the 8th and last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. “We’ve got to play and try to win games.”

Both Stoudemire and Lin originally suffered wounds in the 2nd half Saturday’s 101-79 win over the Detroit Pistons.

“Just thinking that more rest would be of benefit right now and that’s basically it,” Lin said as to the reasons why he’s sitting. “Just trying to make sure that give me a chance to rest so I don’t force anything before I have to.”

“I just need to make sure when I come back that I’m 100 percent,” Lin said.  Stoudemire has had back issues during the past.

The 29-year-old pulled a muscle in his back in the 2011 playoffs. He needed most of the NBA’s five-month lockout to rehabilitation the injury, playing in a 5-on-5 game just once during the lockout. He struggled early in the shortened 66-game season, but Stoudemire seemed to be getting his rhythm back recently, averaging 18 points per game on 57 percent shooting in his last 5 games. Basketball scores.

Chandler recounted that while Stoudemire’s absence will be felt, he’s assured the bench will compensate for the loss.

“We all gotta step up,” he said. “I’ve been asserting all year that our team is really deep, so it’s a chance for someone to step up and he has to take advantage of it.”

That someone is likely newbie big man Harrellson, who played extra minutes in place of Jeffries. He finished with 4 points and 7 rebounds against the Pistons.

Since recovering from a smashed right wrist, suffered January 21 against the Denver Nuggets, Harrellson asserted it’s improving every day — he just can’t move it all the way back just yet — and he’s getting his wind back to give the energy Stoudemire has been providing recently.

On a more positive note, Chandler has just not been wearing a brace on his wounded left wrist, including on Monday during shootaround, so as to get his motion back.
