Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire was treated for a left hand laceration that resulted after punching the glass area that enclosed a fire extinguisher after tonight's loss to the Miami Heat.

That's according to Yahoo!'s Marc J. Spears, while the New York Daily News' Frank Isola stated on Twitter that paramedics were called into the locker room after the game and that

There is blood all over the carpet in the locker room.

Isola described the scene as "complete chaos," and we can understand why. ESPN's Robert Flores said Stoudemire's hand was a "crimson mask." We're loath to go to the obvious "Amar'e finally figured out how to hit the glass" joke, especially since it's probably been done on Twitter 10,000 times by now, but we'll update this post when we get more information.


Update (10:42 p.m.): Isola reports Stoudemire emerged from the locker room with his hand heavily taped and his arm in a sling.

Update 2 (10:49 p.m.): Here's an image of Stoudemire leaving the arena, confirming that he does indeed have his left arm in a sling:


Update 3 (11:59 p.m.): Amar'e has apologized via Twitter.
