I am not injured! New York Knicks star contradicts Woodson

Published Add your comment

New York Knicks power forward Amar'e Stoudemire has dismissed Mike Woodson's claims that he going to be out injured for 'a while'.

Under-fire Knicks head coach Woodson said after Tuesday's pre-match practice session that Stoudemire was going to miss a small chunk of his side's season due to a knee injury.

However Stoudemire took to social network website Twitter to downplay the seriousness of his injury.

The 31-year-old wrote on his personal Twitter account:

'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.'

Stoudemire's decision to contradict his head coach will cast more doubt over Woodson's future at Madison Square Garden.

Woodson is already under immense pressure due to the Knicks' poor start to the season and Stoudemire's comments is sure to make things worse.

Stoudemire has not travelled to the BMO Harris Bradley Center to play the Milwaukee Bucks - but he will be back for the Knicks' game on Saturday if he has it his way.
