New York Knicks forward Amar’e Stoudemire has a knee injury discovered by MRI on Sunday morning.

Knicks coach Mike Woodson told news reporters that Stoudemire is “frustrated.”

The popliteal cyst, also known as a Baker’s cyst, is a “fluid-filled cyst that causes a bulge and a feeling of tightness behind your knee” and “usually the result of a problem with your knee joint such as arthritis,” according to www.mayoclinic.com.

With Stoudemire out for at least the opening week of the regular season, Carmelo Anthony could start at power forward in a smaller Knicks lineup. Against bigger lineups, Anthony would start at small forward and 40-year-old Kurt Thomas could start at power forward.

Praying for you Amar’e!
