Well, that was a fun two-game interlude. And we now return you to your regularly scheduled snakebit version of the Phoenix Suns.

After scoring 140 and 142 points in their first two games under interim coach Alvin Gentry, Phoenix was slammed today with the news that Amare Stoudemire could miss the rest of the regular season -- at the very least -- after suffering a partially detached retina in his right eye Wednesday during the Suns' win over the Clippers. In October, Stoudemire suffered a partially torn iris in the same eye during training camp and wore protective goggles for seven games.

Yikes. Eye problems are always worrisome.

Heard it on Turico and Van Pelt.

Wow, whoever badly wanted Amare, really breathed a sigh of relief today.

The same eye he had problems in before?

Sounds like they need a new training staff.

Imagine if he'd been traded and you're his new team.

Man he should've just kept wearing the visor. It was trendy too with the purple frames and orange tinting.

It happened in the Clippers game.

Gosh, if the Pacers had traded for him like so many on here were clamouring to do, the Pacers could have had their 3 major players out with injuries. Then the others that wanted to get a great lottery pick would be happy.

That's kind of short-sighted, don't you think?

No pun intended?Always intended. (I'm pretty sure Since86 was making a joke, too.)

If the Pacers would have traded for Stat, he wouldn't have been playing in the game he got poked in the eye in!
