Though Knicks head coach Mike D’Antoni isn’t worried about it, center Tyson Chandler sounds less sure about the gravity of his left wrist injury. From Zagsblog: “I’m gonna talk to the doctor today,’ Chandler, the Knicks’ defensive anchor at center, said Tuesday. ‘Like I said, I was hoping that the time off and the rest would help me out a little bit, but. …” Chandler injured both wrists and his tailbone in a Feb. 19 win over his former team, the Dallas Mavericks, but X-rays that day were negative. ‘They say it’s a deep bone bruise and some swelling around the nerves, which is causing my hand to kind of get the weakness and all that,’ he said. He added: ‘I thought the break would do me some good and help me heal a little bit but coming back and just today in practice and just trying to catch the ball and everything, it’s still difficult,’ Chandler said. The 7-footer said he planned to play Wednesday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Knicks don’t play again until Saturday in Boston. ‘He’ll be fine,’ Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni said. ‘He can rest in the summer time. He’s fine. It will hurt his 3-point shooting, but he’ll be alright.’”
