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.

Knicks' Porous Defense Puts Pressure on New York to Perfect Triangle Offense

Oct 22 2014 12:23pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

New things aren't always shiny. Sometimes they're unpolished, musty and ineffective. The New York Knicks' defense is the latter. So their (triangle) offense must be the former—perfect in a way that is aesthetically and functionally pleasing, and capable of limiting the damage their defensive deficiencies are bound to inflict.   Swiss Cheese Defense Presupposing that the Knicks will actually play insufficient defense isn ...

Can Dallas Mavericks Topple San Antonio Spurs in Southwest Division?

Oct 20 2014 2:30pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Dallas Mavericks have been firmly entrenched in their Southwest Division rivals' shadow over the last couple of years. Ever since a glorious championship run in 2011, the Mavericks have been looking for ways to catch up to the ever-dominant San Antonio Spurs.
