New York Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire will miss up to the season’s first three weeks with a left knee injury, a blow to a team with aspirations of making a mark when the year begins.Stoudemire returned to New York on Sunday for an MRI, which revealed a ruptured benign cyst. He had sat out the first two game of the preseason with a left knee bruise.He only played in one exhibition game so far. In Friday’s game against the Toronto Raptors he scored 18 points in 27 minutes, then sat out against Boston on Saturday.The Knicks will move Carmelo Anthony to the power forward position until Stoudemire can return. They could also use 40-year-old Kurt Thomas in Stoudemire’s spot.This is not Stoudemire’s first injury, who who had microscopic surgery on his left knee in 2005 and arthroscopic surgery on his right knee the following spring. The Phoenix Suns refused to offer him a fully guaranteed maximum contract in 2010 because of his injuries. The Knicks did not even insure his contract in 2010, when he signed for $100 million.Last season Stoudemire was limited to 47 games last season and averaged just 17.5 points, his worst total since his rookie season of 2002-03. He missed 15 games because of injury, though none because of knee problems.Long time friend Nets guard Deron Williams knows Stoudemire’s injury history, but had positive words for him.“That’s tough. I hope he gets better,” Williams said. “He’s had some struggles with injuries, but it doesn’t change how we think about the Knicks. They still have a good team.”The Knicks overcame the trials to finish 36-30 last season, losing in the first round of the playoffs for the second straight year. Anthony played some of his best ball when Stoudemire was injured and he moved to the power forward spot, but both have said they can flourish in tandem after finally having a training camp together.That will have to wait until Stoudemire gets healthy.

Cardiff manager Neil Warnock has revealed that the club will bring in reinforcement in “two or three positions” when the transfer window opens in January.Warnock has been playing Callum Paterson, a right back in the striker role in recent games, and has identified the center forward position as one of his priorities.“We’re looking at two or three positions,” Warnock told Sky Sports.“We’ve made offers for strikers but it’s not as simple as that. Not only is it the offer that’s got to be accepted but is they better than what you’ve got in January? Are the teams going to let good players go in January?AAIB responds to Sala’s family request to recover the plane’s wreckage Manuel R. Medina – August 14, 2019 The Air Accidents Investigation Branch says they already explained their decision not to recover the plane’s wreckage to Sala’s family and the pilot’s.“We’re not the market where we can go and spend anything like the top half of the Premier League. We’ve got a certain market and we’ve got to try and get the best out of it.“I don’t think we will be spending silly money – well, I know we won’t. Mehmet Dalman, the chairman, he’s been working hard to bring a striker in. He knows how difficult it is now because it is a bad time to try and get one in.“They’ve always been supportive but for me, if they’re not better than what we are or if it’s ridiculous money I’d rather stick with what we’ve got. I know it sounds silly but I’d rather stick with what we’ve got, because we’ve got a great group.”
