After injuring his back again, the New York Knicks will be without Amare Stoudemire for about two-to-four weeks as he goes under non-surgical treatment and rehab.

The Knicks will play the Orlando Magic tonight, and it will be tough as they will also be without point guard Jeremy Lin. 

"He's just going through the treatment process and he could be day to day. How long that is I have no idea," Woodson said after Wednesday morning's shootaround.

Woodson hopes the star forward can return as soon as possible.

"He's a big piece of this puzzle," the coach said. "But I want him to be healthy when he comes back and not (to) come back trying to play hurt. That's the most important thing."

Stoudemire has been averaging about 18 points and eight rebounds per game so far this season.
