Amar'e Stoudemire: I'm not injured

Tyson Chandler

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Just as center Tyson Chandler is nearing a return to game action, New York Knicks coach Mike Woodson says he's lost another big man, with Amar'e Stoudemire sidelined "a while" due to swelling in his surgically repaired knee.

However, Stoudemire contradicted the notion he will be out an extended period, tweeting that he's not making the trip to Milwaukee, where the Knicks play Wednesday, because of playing in five games last week and in six in nine days overall.
