"Dr. Thomas Carter, whom Stoudemire consulted for a second opinion on the ruptured cyst in his left knee, mainly agreed with the Knicks’ medical staff: Stoudemire should be healthy by roughly the end of November
Carter’s assessment of Stoudemire’s knee matched most of what the Knicks thought in terms of the severity of the injury and how long it would take to heal, said Happy Walters, Stoudemire’s agent. But Walters used the phrase "several more weeks" in describing what Carter felt should be the appropriate length of Stoudemire’s rehabilitation. The Knicks initially said Stoudemire would return to the team within two to three weeks."
I know its not 100% his fault. He didnt ASK to get injured. However, Im becoming a bit exhausted with him foreal. I just dont like how #1 he isnt available when he is needed most. #2 He doesnt return with a sense of urgency or seem anxious to get acclimated. #3 he doesnt deflect the blame from guys like Melo and our bench, who take on the burden everytime he is out. With the exception of the extinguisher incident, he has been exempt from a lot of blame lately. Ive seen teammates stick up for him. Ive seen him simply plead the 5th in return.
