Amar'e Stoudemire Injury: Knicks Star's Hand Is Taped And In A Sling, Season May Be Over

The New York Knicks suffered another loss and Amar'e Stoudemire injured his hand immediately after leaving the floor following the game.

Ken Berger of CBS Sports reports that Stoudemire punched the glass containing a fire extinguisher "seconds" after leaving the floor after the game, lacerating his hand and necessitating stitches. ESPN's Brian Windhorts tweeted a picture of a fire extinguisher similar to what Stoudemire punched:

Stoudemire eventually left the locker room with his arm in a sling and his hand taped. From TNT's broadcast:

Frank Isola of the New York Daily News tweeted, "Can't imagine he plays again."

This is an unfortunate postscript to a rebound season for the Knicks and for Stoudemire in particular, who came into the postseason playing through a back injury. It's possible that his 2011-12 season is finally finished for good, in fairly embarrassing fashion.
