Will the Knicks be better off without Stoudemire?

As more news and updates from the story that topped headlines last night about New York Knicks Forward, Amare Stoudemire who out of frustration punched the glass casing which held a fire extinguisher in the AmericanAirlines Arena hallway last night, aren’t that good for Knicks fans.

According to ESPN the Magazine’s Chris Broussard who witnessed the incident live had this to say.

“He didn’t haul off and punch the glass; he hit it out of frustration,” told Broussard to ESPN. “He kind of slapped it, but with a closed fist. He said he thought it was plastic instead of glass.”

Broussard would go onto describe Stoudemire’s hand as a result to hitting the glass casing.

“Half of his hand was just hanging off. It was really bad. Blood was just squirting out. That’s why they had the paramedics come in, because they thought he might have punctured an artery because of how much blood was coming out.”

Another league source said that while waiting outside the Knicks locker room to conduct post-game interviews, people could be heard from inside calling for towels to tend the injured Stoudemire in efforts to stop the bleeding the source said.

According to the team Stoudemire saw a hand specialist on Tuesday who repaired a “small muscle” in his hand. Though, despite needing stitches, according to another source Stoudemire didn’t suffer any ligament or tendon damage.

Stoudemire, who will miss game three according to the Knicks on Tuesday, is listed as question for the remainder of the series, depending on how long it goes. However, Stoudemire who didn’t comment on the injury to reporters would comment on his twitter late last night.

“I am so mad at myself right now,” Stoudemire posted. “I want to apologize to the fans and my team, not proud of my actions. headed home for a new start.”

Following up what he said before, Stoudemire would post another tweet saying, “We all have done thing out of anger that we regret. That makes us human. Bad timing on my part. Sorry guys. This to shall pass.”

On a better a note, the Knicks will take on the Miami Heat at home on Thursday, in front of a Madison Square Garden crowd who’s pleading for a win. The game is set to tip off at 7:00 P.M. Eastern time on TNT.

“The series is still up in the air. It’s their home court. It’s our turn now. We can’t wait to get back and protect home court. We’ve got to keep everybody positive. It’s far from over,” said Forward, Carmelo Anthony.
