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.

For once, the Knicks have realistic expectations

The typical grandiose talk the Big Apple has made way for far more modest hopes in Phil Jackson's first year. But how long can the Knicks play the long game before they can't help themselves? NEW YORK -- Year One of the Phil Jackson Era in New York has a different sound. See if you can spot it. "As far as wins go, I can't tell you how many wins we're gonna have," Carmelo Anthony said at Knicks media day Monday morning. "What ...

Rockets GM Daryl Morey Fires Back at Mark Cuban

A not-so-cold war continues to wage in Texas between the Dallas Mavericks and Houston Rockets. Forget the battles on the court, the sniping between the two front-offices is much more interesting. Mavs owner Mark Cuban and Rockets general manager Daryl Morey have been trading shots publicly – their bitterness stemming from tussles over free agents, high-ranking executives, Hall of Fame-bound superstars and basketball team philosophies. Per Yahoo! Sports: “I think [Cuban's] pissed that we we ...

Chandler took offense to what he basically considers character assassination from his old team, and says all he did was try to bring harmony to the Big Apple’s bumbling franchise. Per ESPN: “I did nothing ...

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 o ...

Aug 31 2014 7:02pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

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 during his six-year tenure. Since Love was ...
