Tyson Chandler Hurt His Right Knee

by November 06, 2013

New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler had to leave last night’s 102-98 loss to the visiting Charlotte Bobcats after banging knees with Kemba Walker. Chandler will undergo further tests today on the injured right knee, since initial X-rays were inconclusive. Per Newsday: “It doesn’t sound good and it didn’t look good, which is troublesome for the Knicks since Chandler is one of their most indispensable players. ‘We don’t know the severity yet,’ coach Mike Woodson said, wearing a look of concern on his face. ‘We’ll know more [this] morning when he goes to the docs and then we’ll have a better feel of where we are as a team.’ The Knicks definitely aren’t in a good place. They’re 1-3 and already have lost two home games. They hadn’t dropped their second game at the Garden last year until Dec. 21. They started sluggishly for the second straight game and were booed at home again. Amar’e Stoudemire was booed several times during his ineffective five-turnover night. ‘We’re going to have some challenges,’ said Carmelo Anthony, who scored 32 points. ‘We’ve got to want to step up to those challenges, go from there and see what happens. It’s easy to go into a dark place right now. It’s easy to listen to all that negativity that’s going to be coming our way, but we’ve got to stay together as a unit, as a team, remain positive and get through this.'”
