It's a good thing Amare Stoudemire still had use of his right hand following the New York Knicks' loss to the Miami Heat on Monday. He needed it to tweet two apologies for reportedly punching a glass fire-extinguisher case at American Airlines Arena with his left hand out of frustration.
"I am so mad at myself right now, I want to apologize to the fans and my team, not proud of my actions, headed home for a new start," Stoudemire posted on his Twitter account.
Those actions left the New York forward with his arm in a sling, his hand heavily bandaged and his chances of playing in Game 3 of the playoff series -- and possibly more -- in serious jeopardy.
ESPNNewYork.com reports that a league source says Stoudemire is "almost certain" to miss the next game on Thursday and could possibly be done for the first-round Eastern Conference playoff series, which the Knicks already trail, two games to none.
