NEW YORK KNICKS VIDEOS

January 26, 2015 Updates

With his sprained left ankle taped up, his swollen right knee wrapped up, and still awaiting a brace for a sprained left wrist, Stoudemire quietly muttered, "Guys, it [stinks] getting old." Stoudemire may be just 32 years old, but it's been a hard-worn career — a run of injuries that never seems to end. With 37 games remaining this season, his five-year, $100 million contract with the Knicks is coming to an end, and his days in New York likely are, too. He couldn't say if he'd be back tonight to face Sacramento, and really couldn't put a date on a return with any certainty. Bergen Record

"With the ankle sprain, I tried to go back out and play through it," he said. "I was struggling the entire time. I was trying, trying. But I couldn't be myself out there. [In the final minutes] I couldn't do much. My ankle was throbbing. I felt like it was getting tighter and stiffer. At that point, I knew I couldn't be beneficial out there. "I'm sure it's going to be a little time for me to get over this ankle sprain and my wrist sprain. But we'll see. I'll bombard it with rehab the next few days, recover, and see how it feels."

Stoudemire sprained his ankle and wrist in the game. He finished 0-for-5 with one point in 12 minutes and didn't sound too confident about being able to play Monday night against the Kings. "I'm sure it's going to be a little time for me to get over this ankle sprain and my wrist sprain," Stoudemire said. "But we'll see. I'll bombard it with rehab the next few days, recover and see how it feels." Newsday

After a pulmonary embolism, there is also fear of long-term damage to the heart. According to experts, Teletovic likely will undergo stress tests soon for that reason. Medical experts say even if his bloodwork is normal, Teletovic could be on blood thinners for six months to a year. Teletovic is a restricted free agent this summer, and the Knicks could have a lot of interest in him because of his shooting ability as a 6-foot-9 big man for the triangle. The Nets can match any offer. New York Post

Anthony, who missed six games earlier this month with recurring soreness in his left knee, was back out of the Knicks’ lineup on Saturday, getting a recovery day on the tail of back-to-back games after playing 41 minutes in Friday’s win over Orlando. “For now, I think kind of coming off the two weeks and still basically weak from being back from that stretch, I thought it was best for now,” Derek Fisher said before the game. “But there’s no concrete plan to stay with it that way. I’m hopeful that as we get through this weekend and approach next week — we got a back-to-back Wednesday, Thursday — he’ll be in there.” New York Daily News

The Knicks believe a marketplace exists for 37-year-old point guard Pablo Prigioni. According to a source, the Knicks have looked to trade the slow but steady point guard, seeing if they can unearth an asset such as a second-round pick. “He’s worth something,’’ one person familiar with the situation said.
