Knicks Morning News (Tuesday, Mar 27 2012)
Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks to an impressive win last night in a critical game against the Bucks, but also re-injured his right groin, joining teammates Amar’e Stoudemire and Jeremy Lin as health concerns.

In a potentially season-changing blow for Amar’e Stoudemire and the Knicks, the club announced yesterday the star forward is out with a bulging disk in his lower back and that his return date is unknown.

The news about Amar’e Stoudemire’s back isn’t good. It can’t be anytime the words “bulging diskâ? and “out indefinitelyâ? are used in the same statement.
Interim Knicks coach Mike Woodson is holding out hope Stoudemire won’t be gone long, but mentioned the possibility of second…
Linsanity took last night off, as Jeremy Lin’s sore left knee forced him to sit out the Knicks’ 89-80 victory over the Bucks. Lin, who sat out the final quarter-plus of Saturday’s win over the Pistons, last night said he is “day to day,â? and is unsure if…
It was the worst news at the worst time for the Knicks, who had experienced a renaissance under interim coach Mike Woodson. Amar’e Stoudemire is out indefinitely with a bulging disc in his lower back.
The Knicks, for better or worse, are Carmelo Anthony’s team. With Amar’e Stoudemire sidelined indefinitely and Jeremy Lin also out with an injury, the Knicks needed Anthony more than ever Monday night.
Amar’e Stoudemire didn’t attend the Knicks’ shoot-around Monday morning, and he won’t be joining the team any time soon. Stoudemire has a bulging back disc and will be out of the Knicks’ lineup indefinitely.
NEW YORK — Since Mike Woodson replaced Mike D’Antoni on March 14, the Knicks have been averaging just below 100 points per game — 99.4 to be exact.
That point total has enabled the Knicks to stay in front on the scoreboard in what has been a down scoring season — across the board in the NBA due to the condensed schedule — while also putting a clamp on opponents the Woodson way.
Now, the Knicks need to find a way to make up 17.6 points per game because star power forward Amare Stoudemire is out indefinitely with a bulging disk in his back.
Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony tweaked his groin in the third quarter of Monday night’s 89-80 win over the Milwaukee Bucks. He will be re-evaluated on Tuesday morning and hopes to be available for Wednesday’s home game against the Orlando Magic.
“I don’t think it’s too bad, I just want to take it day by day,” Anthony said. “Tomorrow, (I’ll) get re-evaluated and see what happens from there.”
Anthony tweaked the injury during a spin move late in the third quarter.
New York Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire is out “indefinitely” after an MRI revealed 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.
The team said that Stoudemire will undergo nonsurgical treatment for the back injury and will treat it with rehabilitation. But coach Mike Woodson did not rule out the possibility that Stoudemire could need surgery in the future.
It’s a simple equation, really: Less Amare equals more Carmelo for the Knicks.
That’s the scenario New York is facing right now with Amare Stoudemire out due to a back injury.
And if the bulging disk in Stoudemire’s back forces him out for an extended period of time, that’s the scenario the Knicks will face for the rest of the season.
“A situation like this requires me to step my game up a little bit more, take it up a notch,” Anthony said.
NEW YORK – When Baron Davis signed with the Knicks in December, he instantly was stamped as the team’s next savior. That was before Jeremy Lin, when Davis was destined for the starting job whenever he could recover from the herniated disk in his back.
Davis’ timetable, however, was very different from the one in the minds of those who hung their hopes on his return.
“I was just happy to get back on the court,” Davis said.

The New York Knicks point guard captured 70 percent of the vote and upset New York Yankees future Hall of Fame closer Mariano Rivera in the Finals to take home the title of the Big Apple’s Most Beloved.
