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.

Why Kevin Love Trade Was Blessing in Disguise for the Minnesota Timberwolves

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 Timberw ...

"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. "Don't know if I'll ever have a chance to do this again." Now that Duncan has committed to at least one more season with the franchise that drafted him in 1997, it appears he'll indeed have the chance to win back-to-b ...

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 ...

Early Win-Loss Predictions for Dallas Mavericks Next Season

Aug 19 2014 10:36pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

After having one of their most active offseasons in recent years, the Dallas Mavericks seem to have their roster all figured out. They made their big trade with the New York Knicks, re-signed parts of the old guard and brought in some new blood as well and now look primed to put all the pieces together. All this activity of course wasn’t just for fun. The Mavs are serious about improving upon last season, hence spending $46 million on Chandler Parsons. But improving on 49 wins i ...

NY Knicks Players Who Will Make a Big Jump in 2014-15

Aug 6 2014 6:27am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

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 ...

Why New York Knicks Are Still Far from Elite in Improved Eastern Conference

Don't tell Earl Monroe, but the New York Knicks have a long, long way to go before anyone mistakes them for a serious contender in the Eastern Conference. Per Marc Berman of the New York Post, the former Knicks guard gushed: "If these guys can get off to a good start and stabilize what their roles are, I don’t see why they can’t be as good as the rest of the guys in the East. I see them [in the top four] easily." Pearls of wisd ...

After six years with the Minnesota Timberwolves, it looks almost certain that Kevin Love will be traded. Love has superstar talent, but he is not worth the superstar price.   It has been rumored that the Timberwolves are looking to acquire Andrew Wiggins or Klay Thompson in exchange for Love, per Marc Stein and Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com, but both the Garden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers have been hesitant to offer their young potential A ...
