It's that time of the year again. Or month. Or week.
This is a tough blow, as Stoudemire was playing well, averaging 14 points, despite his limited role. He's really been the only member of the rotation who can generate his own offense in the post.
Now, others must step up. On the bright side, this won't be anything new for them. At this point, they're more used to playing without Stoudemire than they are with him.
Not one player will be able to make up for what he brought to the table. Each member of the rotation will have to maximize their specialty to the fullest and make up for Stoudemire's lost production as a team.
