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.

"Just the close of a career. I know it's coming to an end," San Antonio Spurs icon Tim Duncan told reporters after claiming his fifth title in June.

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 ...

Tim Hardaway Jr. After an impressive rookie season, Tim Hardaway Jr. has taken over the mantle as New York's marquee prospect. Hardaway earned a place on the All-Rookie first team in 2014-15, emerging as the best shooter in his draft class and providing a lot more offensive firepower than would have been expected this early in his career. Though he still has a lot of work to do to become a well-rounded NBA player, Hardaway has made the first steps down that path this summer. He came ...
