Gross New Details Of How Amar'e Stoudemire Mangled His Hand On A Fire Extinguisher Are Out

We now have a more detailed account the fire extinguisher incident that will keep Amar’e Stoudemire out of Game 3 against the Heat tomorrow.

Here’s what an unnamed person who saw the whole thing told ESPN’s Chris Broussard:

“He didn’t haul off and punch the glass; he hit it out of frustration. He kind of slapped it, but with a closed fist. He said he thought it was plastic instead of glass.”

“Half of his hand was just hanging off. It was really bad. Blood was just squirting out. That’s why they had the paramedics come in, because they thought he might have punctured an artery because of how much blood was coming out.”

Gross. So it seems like it was just a freak accident, more or less.

The New York tabloids are still having fun with it though, as evidenced by this highly involved NYPost cover (via Jimmy Traina):
