Amar'e disputes Woody over injury

By Ohm Youngmisuk

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- The Knicks don't need any more injuries and they certainly don't need any more drama.

Yet, there appears to be some drama over the latest Knicks injury. Mike Woodson says Amar'e Stoudemire will be sidelined "a while" due to swelling in his surgically repaired knee.

However, Stoudemire contradicted Woodson's assertion that he will be out for an extended period due to swelling in his knee, tweeting that he is not making the trip to Milwaukee -- where the Knicks play on Wednesday -- due to playing five games last week and six in nine days overall.

Amar'e tweeted:

Fans, IM NOT INJURED, just want u to know I'm ONLY stay'n bk bc of 6 games n 9 days w/ bk2bks! Body & Knees feel great! #Knicks #STAT
