NEW YORK, NY (The Spread) – The New York Knicks have learned that they could be without their biggest star for the rest of the season.

Amare Stoudemire will travel to Miami to see a consultant that worked on his back earlier this year, and CBSSports.com is reporting that he may need season-ending surgery.

Stoudemire had an MRI exam Monday that revealed the injury and at first, the Knicks said he didn’t need surgery. But if the consultant says that rehabilitation won’t be enough to correct the issue, Stoudemire will miss the rest of the regular season, and possibly the playoffs as well.

Point guard Jeremy Lin is also out for the Knicks against the Bucks because of a sore right knee, but Stoudemire's injury is the greater concern.

He was finally playing well recently after struggling earlier this season following a back injury in last season's playoffs. The Knicks currently hold the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Oddsmakers currently list the Knicks’ odds to win the 2012 NBA Finals at 25/1, and their Eastern Conference odds at 12/1.
