Another knee surgery for Amar’e Stoudemire is expected this week, placing ‘stat’ on the shelf for six to eight weeks, the team announced on Saturday.

Stoudemire will have a procedure on his right knee to remove tissue, the exact same operation he had on his other knee last year, according to huffingtonpost.com:

Stoudemire missed the first 30 games after having the same surgery, called a debridement, on his left knee during the preseason. He returned on New Year’s Day and has averaged 14.2 points in 29 games as a reserve.

This comes as the Knicks are in a neck-and-neck battle with the Pacers for the Eastern Conference’s second seed, hold a narrow lead in the Atlantic Division, and as Carmelo Anthony sits with knee soreness of his own.

‘Melo missed his third straight game over the weekend with the knee issue.
