Tyson Chandler C NY 28 Days

Tyson Chandler will start vs. the Pacers on Wednesday.

He was able to return to the lineup on Saturday, but was away from the team earlier this week to deal with a personal issue which cost him two games last week. Chandler will be a huge part of the Knicks' game plan on both ends tonight and needs to play well for the Knicks to pull off the upside. Roy Hibbert's struggling offensive game doesn't get a boost tonight with Chandler ready to go.

Tyson Chandler left the Knicks on Monday to continue dealing with a personal issue, but he's expected to rejoin the team in time for Wednesday's game.

He missed two games last week before playing a quiet 25 minutes during Saturday's matinee, so if nothing else he'll be well rested for the Knicks' three-game week. We'll let you know if he's in any danger of picking up another DNP.

Tyson Chandler helped the Knicks earn their season-best sixth consecutive victory on Saturday, scoring two points and grabbing five boards in 25 minutes vs. the Bucks.

The numbers don't stand out but Chandler made life difficult for Milwaukee and wasn't needed much in the second half due to the lopsided score. Carmelo Anthony was the only New York starter to top 30 minutes and the whole team should be rested and ready for Wednesday's key matchup with Indiana -- the win moved the Knicks within three games of the Hawks for the East's final playoff seed.

Tyson Chandler (personal) and Amare Stoudemire (rest) will return for Saturday's game against the Bucks.

The Knicks were forced to roll with a small lineup featuring Cole Aldrich at center and Carmelo Anthony at power forward on Wednesday. They still ripped the Celtics. On Saturday, look for both Chandler and Stoudemire to start against a Bucks team that gets destroyed by bigs.

Tyson Chandler (personal reasons) will not play vs. the Celtics on Wednesday.

This makes two consecutive DNPs for Chandler, though he wasn't expected to be out for long and should be ready to go for Saturday's game vs. the Bucks. Jeremy Tyler is likely to assume the starting center job with Amare Stoudemire (rest) also unavailable, while Earl Clark will earn more minutes and even Cole Aldrich may crack the rotation.

Tyson Chandler will not play against the Sixers on Monday due to personal reasons.

He's not with the team and should be considered questionable for Wednesday's game against the Celtics. We'll pass along any details about what's going on with Chandler, but the team will go with Amare Stoudemire, Jeremy Tyler and Cole Aldrich to help fill in tonight.

Tyson Chandler could miss Monday's game against the Sixers due to a personal matter.

There is no word as to why Chandler will not be with the team and hopefully everything is fine. It's not terrible timing for the Knicks as they get to host the Sixers tonight, so going with a smaller lineup should still be enough to get a win. The Knicks will likely get Amare Stoudemire more involved at center while Jeremy Tyler and Cole Aldrich could get a few more minutes.

Tyson Chandler's inflated rebounding numbers continued on Wednesday vs. the Wolves, grabbing 14 boards with 15 points and one turnover in 35 minutes.

He grabbed 14.2 rebounds per game in his previous 10 games and has been playing 36.1 minutes per game over that span. Chandler's minutes jumped up to 33.3 per game in February after just 25.5 in January, so he looks like he's ready to roll the rest of the way.

Tyson Chandler isn't sure he wants to be part of the Knicks' future.

Chandler's contract doesn't expire until the end of the 2014-2015 season, but he let his frustrations show after Monday's loss to the Pistons. "That's something I have to visit during the offseason," Chandler said when asked about his future in New York. "We're all going to have a lot of decisions to make." Regardless of his future plans, Chandler has been an absolute beast on the glass as of late in averaging 16.0 boards per game over his last five games. As long as he continues to take out his frustration on the court, his fantasy owners can't complain about Chandler's long-term uncertainty in New York.
