    Suns: Stoudemire could miss 8 weeks

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

    The beleaguered Suns announced Friday that AmareStoudemire was forced to undergo eye surgery to repair a partially detached retina suffered in a Wednesday night rout of the Los Angeles Clippers. It is Stoudemire's second eye injury sinceOctober and the All-Star forward could miss the rest of the regular season.

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

    Senior writer Marc Stein covers the NBA for ESPN.com.

    WOW. Amare was mad they were trying to trade him and deliberately waited until after the trade deadline to do this. Sticking it to the Suns management [​IMG]

    Guess that's what you get for not showing the Clips any mercy.

    So does this mean they're not winning the chip after beating the Clippers back to back?

    Because, that's what they were trying to tell us.
