Take as much time as you need!
Amar'e Stoudemire, who already missed one New York Knicks game, has revealed he'll be missing three more to grieve the loss of his older brother, telling sources:
"I am going to take a few days to be with my family and grieve the loss of my big brother, Hazell Stoudemire. I am humbled by all of the thoughts and prayers I have received."
Hazell Stoudemire was killed in a car accident in Florida Monday after colliding with the rear end of a tractor trailer at a high speed.
IF he feels up to it, the next game Amar'e may play in will be on February 14th, when the Knicks take on the Raptors.
Again, so sorry for the loss! Our thoughts and prayers definitely go out to the Stoudemire family during this difficult time.
