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.

What Dallas Mavericks Need from Dirk Nowitzki Next Season

Sep 17 2014 12:41am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

In many ways, the Dallas Mavericks are a completely different team. They have new point guards, a revamped roster, a potential new playing style and, to top it off, elevated expectations for the 2014-15 season. But really, the core of the team has remained the same. The team still ultimately begins and ends with Dirk Nowitzki, as it has for the last 15 years. Between his shooting stroke and role as the cornerstone of the Mavericks, as long as he’s on the roster he will be a massive ...

The Minnesota Timberwolves have officially lost their three-time All-Star Kevin Love, but this trade may be a blessing in disguise Last season, Love had a career year, scoring 26.1 points per game and ranking third in Player Efficiency Rating, according to Hollinger Stats, courtesy of ESPN. Love might be a top-five scorer in the NBA, but he showed no defensive intensity and was unable to carry the Timberwolves to the playoffs d ...

Surprising Name Who Will Make a Big Impact for NY Knicks in 2014-15

Aug 21 2014 7:07am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The New York Knicks are in need of help across the board if they are to turn things around and be competitive in the East this year, but with the help of a surprising name, they may just be able to do it. Andrea Bargnani once again fell victim to false expectations after being acquired in exchange for three draft picks, but upon his return from injury—and in a new regime—he could still turn out to be an important player for the Knicks. Bargnani clearly wasn't a great fit alongside C ...
