    Stoudemire has torn iris.

    Phoenix Suns forward Amare Stoudemire missed practice Thursday with a partially torn iris after being poked in the eye during practice Wednesday.

    Suns center Boris Diaw inadvertently poked Stoudemire in the right eye during practice, and Stoudemire awoke Thursday with swelling and blurred vision.

    An examination showed there was no damage to the retina or the cornea, according to the East Valley Tribune.

    "He actually had some damage to his iris, which is not serious, fortunately," team GM Steve Kerr said, according to the Arizona Republic.

    Stoudemire, who will miss the team's public scrimmage on Friday, will likely wear goggles when he returns to the court -- possibly Sunday -- and might wear them for the rest of his career.

    "It's going to be important that he gets back and try to get up his conditioning," Suns coach Terry Porter said, according to the Republic. "As soon as you take a couple steps forward, you've got to take a couple steps backward for him, unfortunately."

    Doesn't leave a lot left. Maybe a testicular injury next. Shaq's elbow knocks his balls right out of his sack.

    Sorry Buddy. The Rockets go thru the same thing yearly and the Bulls can't even get a star now.

    Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.

    Fortunately it's not worse than it is.
    Better this than a torn ACL.
    He mentioned he had wanted to wear goggled anyway to prevent stuff like this...

    I think the most important question now is, will the NBA Live / 2k series send out an 'amare with goggles' patch?

    I guess we will just have to go to EDIT PLAYER and hook him up with some tight goggles.
