NEW YORK — The Knicks chances for a deep run in the Eastern Conference playoffs appear to have just taken a major hit.

The Knicks announced Saturday that Amar’e Stoudemire will undergo right knee debridement this week and is expected to miss six weeks.

The NBA playoffs begin exactly six weeks from today (Saturday), April 20.
