New York Knicks power forward Amar'e Stoudemire could be set for a spell on the sidelines after spraining his left ankle during his side's game against the Indiana Pacers.
The experienced NBA star started on the bench but lasted just 14 minutes before being forced off injured against the Indiana Pacers on Thursday night.
Mike Woodson stated after the game at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse that Stoudemire will miss 'a few games' due to the ankle injury.
Stoudemire has been blighted with injuries since he sealed a move to the New York Knicks from the Phoenix Suns in 2010.
The 31-year-old is having his poorest season since the 2005-06 NBA campaign as he has been unable to string several games together.
Stoudemire, who is the highest paid player at Madison Square Garden, is still seen as an important figure at the New York Knicks - despite the power forward's constant injury problems.
The New York Knicks have the chance to make up for their heavy defeat against the Indiana Pacers tonight, as they face the Los Angeles Clippers at Madison Square Garden.
