NEW YORK, N.Y. - The New York Knicks say forwards Amare Stoudemire and Kenyon Martin both could miss two weeks because of sprained left ankles.
Both players were hurt Thursday night in a 117-89 loss at Indiana and underwent MRI exams on Friday. The Knicks said Stoudemire's test also revealed a bone bruise, and Martin's confirmed tendinitis.
Martin was in the starting lineup recently while Tyson Chandler was ill, but had returned to a reserve role. Stoudemire, forced to play restricted minutes or sit out some games entirely earlier in the season after off-season knee surgery, had played in 14 straight games and scored more than 20 points in three of them.
