Tyson Chandler Out 4-6 Weeks With Small Fracture in Fibula

The New York Knicks confirmed the fears surrounding Tyson Chandler’s knee injury on Tuesday night — the big fella is expected to miss the next 4-6 weeks. Chandler won’t need surgery, but this is a tough, early-season blow for the struggling Knickerbockers:

    So is their defence gonna be worse than the Lakers right now?

    Had a feeling. It looked awkward when it happened.

    Ouch, and down goes their main pillar on defense.

    this pretty much solidifies this as Melo’s last season in New York. Dolan is going to make being the star of that team unbearable.

  • Caboose

    If any of y’all bet on games, ALWAYS bet on the over for Knicks games now…

  • danpowers

    either that or maybe he just intensifies using the nyc dancers and an innocent gm as the scapegoats while leaving the players alone lol

  • Above_You

    It really sucks being a Knick fan sometimes.

    unless Dolan can force a trade that actually makes sense, trying to win without a supporting cast that can help that happen, with an owner who’s expectations are unrealistic, is…or at least should be, too much to deal with over the long run.

    don’t get depressed, keep this up and you might get andrew wiggins on your team

  • Dfrance

    No, no, no. Melo told us himself that he wants to stay in NY. He’s going to recruit FAs there. Only opted out so he can feel the love from other teams.

    the Lakers have $12 million dollars under salary for next season…..total
    unless the Knicks can do something to actually compete, i think Melo has had about enough. Dolan’s actions the last 2 weeks have got to make New York look like a fruitless endgame.

  • i_ball

    So Bargniani might get to start at Center

    This is the opportunity that Bargs has been waiting for to unleash his ferocious rebounding ability.

  • danpowers

    probably, yes. and i am paying more than 200 bucks per season to watch this bullsh*t happen lol

  • spit hot fiyah

    u are implying that there are other pillars

  • http://h2hoops.wordpress.com/ Habeeba Husain

    Well, there goes any chance we probably never had in the first place.

    Injuries stink up sports. Get well soon, Tyson.

  • Chester

    Welp… there goes our season :/

  • Nick Holden

    Will these guys even make the playoffs…

  • Above_You

    lmao It’s sad that it’s strong possibility.

    Knicks have expiring contracts in 2014 and the Knicks can build around Melo with cap space, why would he leave New York to play with an aging Kobe and pathetic/stubborn owner, coach, and terrible Lakers team.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Lol Amare Stoudemire alone makes up about 40% of the salary cap both this and next year…..their situation is bleak at best. That’s why he’d leave. .
    The Lakers are The Lakers. Hate their situation all you want, but more than likely they will be contending again soon enough.

  • bball knowledge

    ummm their situation is bleak this season but it gets better when the bad contracts expire in 2014 and the Knicks can recruit free agents. Every team goes through this once in a while its part of sports.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Once in a while? Have you only been a Knicks fan for 2 years is something? The Knicks situation being bleak with James Dolan as the owner is just normal.

  • bball knowledge

    Miami did the same thing in 2010 and got Lebron…they prepared themselves to clear cap space to sign free agents…the Knicks are doing the same thing except they might not land any marquee free agents in 2014 but then again I cant predict the future.

  • spit hot fiyah

    yeah it was just a bad joke. shump is a legit defender and i expect him to have a monster year. he looks like he is 100% now, he was missing a step last year.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    the Knicks did the same thing in 2010….and got Amar’e Stoudemire. And they will still be paying for it next year.
    Dolan forces management to spend money they shouldn’t spend. Sorry buddy, but the Knicks are a shot in the dark to compete anytime soon. if Melo stays i won’t be shocked or anything like that, but if winning is his ultimate goal, getting the hell out of New York ASAP is the smart business decision.

  • bball knowledge

    He would probably ruin his legacy anyways because if you cant win in New York I don’t think he could win anywhere else and the Brooklyn Nets would take over the city in terms of being relevant, I don’t think Melo wants to be known as the guy that couldn’t win and left and be known as a quitter, more so when you already play in a big market and can recruit players.

    Every team signs bad contracts whether it be in the NFL, NBA etc…

    Ever since Lebron went to Miami many other superstars are expected to leave their teams to join super teams as opposed to winning for their original team which is not fair.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    New York is already the Nets city. in terms of who is competitive and worth watching.
    Melo would be known as a “quitter” for one year at most. Then, just like it is with Dwight, he will be lauded for caring more about winning then playing in a big market.
    It not unfair. LOL, the NBA has always been this way. Free Agency is just a different tool to get players where they want to go. Before it was shady trade demands and under the table dealings. — this system is much better.
