Stoudemire likely out if Suns make the playoffsPosted: Updated:
PHOENIX -- The eye surgeon who repaired the detached retina of Amare Stoudemire says the Phoenix Suns star likely will not return for the playoffs even if the team earns a berth.
Dr. Pravin Dugel says the healing process for Stoudemire's eye is "excruciatingly slow and delicate" and the recuperation could take months.
