The Heat now leads the series 2-0.
The NBA star punched a glass fire extinguisher case and left the building with his arm in a sling and a bulky wrap over his left hand.

The series picks up on Thursday in New York, and although the Knicks aren’t saying anything right now, it seems highly improbable that Amare Stoudemire will be able to play.
“I am so mad at myself right now, I want to apologize to the fans and my team, not proud of my actions, headed home for a new start,” Stoudemire tweeted after the game.
Knicks center Tyson Chandler said he didn’t expect Stoudemire to play Game 3.
An update from the Knicks said, “Extent of injury is unknown at this time.”
