Congrats to the Suns for sticking to their guns and keeping their potential franchise player. Unfortunately...

Amare Stoudemire of Phoenix Suns could miss 8 weeks

    A day after deciding to let the trade deadline pass without making a major money-saving move, the inactivity seemingly has turned incredibly costly for the Phoenix Suns.

    The Suns have announced that Amare Stoudemire was forced to undergo surgery Friday to repair a partially detached retina in his right eye suffered in a Wednesday night rout of the Los Angeles Clippers. It is Stoudemire's second injury in that eye since October and threatens to sideline the All-Star forward for the rest of the regular season.

    Stoudemire's return to physical activity has been estimated at eight weeks by the Suns after Friday morning's procedure, although the club said in a statement that "recovery varies on a case-by-case basis."

No other way to put it, this just sucks. I think the angle of it happening hours after the trade deadline is a little short-sighted (such an injury happening hours after a trade would have canceled the trade, anyway, no?), but the bigger picture is that Phoenix is fighting for a playoff spot and now lose their best player. This couldn't have come at a worse time.

If there had been a trade in the works, he wouldn't have played at all.
