Stoudemire out approximately 6 weeks

By Ian Begley

Amar'e Stoudemire is scheduled to have a right knee debridement this coming week and is expected to miss approximately six weeks, the New York Knicks announced Saturday.

"It's a major loss to what we're trying to do," coach Mike Woodson said.

A debridement is a form of arthroscopic surgery that removes debris.

Stoudemire did not participate in Saturday's shootaround because of soreness in both of his knees. An MRI later Saturday revealed that surgery was required.
