When the going gets tough, the tough get going, except if you’re the New York Knicks. Soon the Knicks medical staff will be sitting on the bench of this MASH unit. Now, yes, injuries are a part of the game, but injuries are also associated with age and being out of shape.
Not many Knicks outside of Carmelo Anthony came to camp in season shape. I don’t think we had one exhibition game when all the Knicks played. It was only with the help of the CIA that we found out Amar’e Stoudemire and Iman Shumpert had knee surgery along with J.R. Smith.
Since camp, Raymond (not in great shape) Felton has had numerous leg, hip, and groin injuries. Beno Udrih has knee issues along with Metta World Peace. Kenyon Martin and Stoudemire last night both hurt their ankles and are now out.
According to Chris Herring, “Woodson says Martin will probably be out a few games. Expects that Stoudemire will probably miss time, too, with his ankle injury.”
