Updated: Knicks forward Tyson Chandler was forced to leave Wednesday’s game in Denver with a knee injury, after colliding with Nuggets forward Corey Brewer. Chandler could not leave the court under his own power and had to be helped to the locker room, where he was diagnosed with a left knee contusion. After the game, Knicks coach Mike Woodson told reporters that Chandler’s injury is not considered serious, and he is probable for the team’s game Thursday in Portland.
Although the Knicks reported the injury is not serious, the fact that they are playing on back-to-back nights may prevent Chandler from suiting up. More information should be available after their pregame shoot around, but if he can't play, expect to see the Knicks go with Kurt Thomas at the center position. If that is the case, don't expect much out of Thomas in daily fantasy contests.
