08:10 AM ET 11.22 | Whether Amar'e Stoudemire plays in the upcoming "Homecoming Tour" just took on a little more significance. [Stoudemire] said one positive result of the ongoing NBA lockout was that it afforded him the time for his pulled back muscle to heal properly. He declared himself 100 percent last month and looked healthy when he played in the South Florida All-Star Classic in Miami. But then came word from Drew Gooden's charity game in the Bay Area on Sunday that Stoudemire pulled out of appearing in the game, according to game officials, because of a back injury. ... Though a season doesn't appear to be on the horizon any time soon, a relapse of the back injury would be terrible news for the Knicks.

Get that back checked out, the back have ended many careers (Bird, Rick Mahone) to name two; there are many more.

Just imagine all the players that would be injuring themselves if the season started next week...

While it might seem like a great time to get better... sitting out a year will actually work against these guys.

How about that 100% guaranteed contract! I didn't think it would start until the third year, but I foresee a lot of years spent on that Knicks bench in plain clothes.
