NBA notes: Knicks' Amare Stoudemire out 2-3 weeks with knee injury

New York Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire is expected to miss the start of the regular season and be out two to three weeks because of an injured left knee.

He returned to New York on Sunday for another evaluation, and an MRI revealed a ruptured benign cyst, the team said.

Stoudemire had played in only one preseason game, sitting out the first two because of a bruised left knee. He scored 18 points Friday against Toronto in 27 minutes, then sat out again Saturday against Boston in Albany. The Knicks practiced Sunday in Syracuse, where they play Philadelphia on Monday.

The Knicks open their regular season Nov. 1 against Brooklyn.

Heat waive pair

The Miami Heat have waived center Mickell Gladness and forward Robert Dozier. Both appeared in four preseason games with the Heat. Dozier averaged 1.5 points and 3.3 rebounds in nearly 11 minutes per game, and Gladness averaged 1.3 points and 2.3 rebounds in about eight minutes per outing.

Miami announced the moves on Sunday, an off day from practice. Dozier was Miami's second-round draft pick in 2009. Gladness played in 26 NBA games last season, 18 of them with Golden State and eight with the Heat.
