New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler suffered a fractured fibula in his team's Nov. 5 game against the Charlotte Bobcats when he collided with Kemba Walker and will miss four to six weeks.

New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler has a fractured fibula and will miss four to six weeks of action.

More specifically, ESPN New York's Ian Begley reported on Nov. 7 that the injury is a small non-displaced fracture on his right fibula, which Chandler suffered after he collided with Charlotte Bobcats point guard Kemba Walker in the first quarter of their game last Tuesday.

Begley also says the Knicks are ruling out surgery as there was no ligament or nerve damage.

Both Chandler and Walker fell to the parquet floor in pain. However, Walker was able to shake it off to score 25 points and add five rebounds and six assists in Charlotte's 102-97 win that resulted in the Knicks falling to 1-3. 

The Knicks center did not return after playing less than seven minutes. With the prognosis already out, the estimate is he could miss anywhere between 12 to 25 games. 

In Chandler's absence, New York will most likely resort to Kenyon Martin, Andrea Bargnani , Amar'e Stoudemire or Cole Aldrich. The Knicks could even resort to either Ike Diogu or Jason Collins, per Frank Isola of the New York Daily News. 

Knicks head coach Mike Woodson said he is now inclined to use a smaller lineup consisting of Raymond Felton and Pablo Prigioni in the backcourt, Iman Shumpert at small forward, Carmelo Anthony at power forward and Bargnani at center. 

Begley reported that Woodson plans to limit Martin's minutes between 10 and 20 per game. 

"That's really the only route I have right now because of the fact that Kenyon and Amar'e are both on restricted minutes.

"All we can do is nurse (Chandler) back. It's going to be a four- or six-week process and then welcome him back with open arms, because at the end of the day he is a big piece to what we're doing. He was the reason why we had the success we had in the last two seasons and we are going to need him in a uniform soon." 

Chandler, the 2011-12 NBA Defensive Player of the Year, had been averaging 7.3 points and nine rebounds through four games in the 2013-14 season.

James Harden is right about Chandler Parsons

Jul 25 2014 9:26am CDT | Source: SBNation

The former running mates are feuding, and while he's making himself look like a jackwagon, James Harden is right that Chandler Parsons was a role player last year. The two players most responsible for getting the Houston Rockets into a top-4 seed in the West last season were James Harden and Dwight Howard. No one would dispute that. So when Harden says, as he did in the Philippines this w ...

NBA Rumors: Analyzing Trade Buzz with Josh Smith, Knicks and More

Jul 23 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The New York Knicks, Cleveland Cavaliers and Detroit Pistons are eerily similar. All three have new leaders (Phil Jackson, David Blatt, Stan Van Gundy) attempting a rebuild. They all have superstars to please (Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James, Greg Monroe) and major moves that seem all but sure to happen before next season tips off. The NBA rumor mill is a fickle thing that leads fans on a wild goose chase each year, and while there are still plenty of rumblings out there, the similar tra ...

Mark Cuban's Dallas Mavericks are on to something. It started with the trade that brought Tyson Chandler (and Raymond Felton) from the New York Knicks, solidifying a front line in a way it hadn't been since the last time the 31-year-old center wore a Mavs uniform. The next big step was signing forward Chandler Parsons away from the Houston Rockets. President of basketball operations Donnie Nelson swung for the fences and landed a piece ...

Jul 16 2014 6:11pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The ink has all but dried on Carmelo Anthony’s fresh five-year, $124 million contract with the New York Knicks (per ESPN’s Ian Begley), culminating a weeks-long back-and-forth that saw the high-scoring forward put one foot out the door—aimed westward towards the Chicago Bulls—before his heart thought better of it. Now comes the hard part: building around a flawed superstar on the wrong side of 30. Phil Jackson’s persistence finally paid off. But i ...
