The New York Red Bulls are likely to begin the 2010 playoffs without the services of their star striker, Thierry Henry.
Head coach Hans Backe told reporters on Tuesday that Henry is "probably out" for Saturday's playoff opener against the San Jose Earthquakes. The Designated Player trained on Tuesday, but he was reportedly experiencing too much discomfort to feature in Saturday's match. Henry has missed the last two matches for the Red Bulls with a knee strain.
Backe also said that he is optimistic that there is a "possibility" that Henry will play in Thursday's second leg at Red Bull Arena.
Starting to doubt if Henry will return at all in the playoffs? With Henry out, can you see the Earthquakes pulling off the upset?
