The Knicks will be shorthanded — or, if you prefer, the Jeremy Lin show will continue — through the weekend.

Amare Stoudemire will remain in Florida through the weekend and will rejoin the Knicks for practice next Monday, tweets Mark Berman of the New York Post. That would have him missing three games — the Wizards on Wednesday, Lakers on Friday and Timberwolves on Saturday.

Stoudemire is back home with family mourning the death of his brother in a car accident.

The Knicks will also be without Carmelo Anthony for those games following the strained groin muscle he suffered Monday night.

    I want to see Lin play with Amare…it is when Melo gets back than the “Lin show” will end.

      Melo is not as selfish as people think, i attribute his shooting alot to the tone that was set from game 1 where he pull our butts out of the fire against the celts

        the funny thing about Melo is that hes been here this long and we still have seen him at his best

    Brett Farve wouldn’t have missed any of those games.
