Stoudemire to take leave to grieve brothers death
All star Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire will miss at least 3 games as he takes the time to grieve the loss of his brother Hazell Stoudemire. The elder Stoudemire was killed in a car crash early Monday morning.
“I’m going to take a few days to be with my family and grieve the loss of my big brother”.
“I’m humbled by the amount of thoughts and prayers that I have received” he added while talking to tmz.com.
The Knicks will be without Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony. He went down with a strained groin in Monday nights win over the Utah Jazz.
No timetable has been set for Anthony’s return.
