Marc Berman's post on New York Knicks | Latest updates on Sulia
Stoudemire yesterday for the first time explained why he needed the surgery on his left knee and confirmed it was
related to the ruptured cyst and not any wear and tear of his cartilage. Stoudemire underwent what is called knee-debridement surgery Nov. 1st which is cleaning out the knee. Stoudemire had ruptured a cyst in his left knee in his lone preseason game in Montreal Oct. 19th. “Whenever there’s a ruptured cyst, there’a lot of fragments accumulate in the cyst,’’ Stoudemire said. “Then that cyst burst and it floats around in the knee and you have to go inside to clean it out.’’ The Knicks didn't realize he had the cyst before the Montreal game and had sat out the first three preseason games with what was termed a bruised knee.
