New York Knicks forward Amar’e Stoudemire injured his back during Game 2 of the First Round series versus the Boston Celtics, which limited his productivity for the next two games. Although the injury occurred a few months ago, Stoudemire still feels pain in his back.
“It’s still a little sore,” Stoudemire told The New York Post. “But it’s definitely getting better. I’ve been working out, getting rehab on the back. It’s getting stronger. It’s still pretty tight with certain movements.”
Unfortunately, with the lockout now in the NBA, Stoudemire cannot receive treatment from the Knicks medical staff. He will have to deal with the soreness in his back without the aid of the New York Knicks.
