Found March 31, 2013 on NBA Injury News:
New York Knicks' center Tyson Chandler has missed several games already due to a bulging disk, which was supposed to keep him out for around a week. Now, the injury seems to be worse than they thought. According to Marc Berman of the NY Post, Chandler may have a pinched nerve in his neck. There is no timetable for his return, yet another blow to an already-depleted Knicks squad.“There’s always a concern but he’ll be fine,’’ coach Mike Woodson said. “We’re just being cautious. Eventually, he’ll be back. I like to think he’s getting better. He’ll let us know when it’s time for him to step back on the floor.’’ Dr. Wellington Hsu, a spine specialist at Northwestern University, told The Post the symptoms appear to be related to a pinched nerve that isn’t easy to get rid of. According to Dr. Hsu, Chandler’s complaint of neck stiffness along with sensations running from his neck to shoulder is often associated with nerve impingement that could need a steroid injection such as an epidural to clear up.“Because it’s going on three weeks, it could very well be a pinched nerve,’’ Dr. Hsu said. “That is more serious than just a stiff neck and could take a month of treatment and rest. Surgery usually isn’t required after just three weeks — unless it doesn’t go away.’’While some fans may be hoping for a quick return for Chandler, Raymond Knicks' guard Raymond Felton is all for letting Chandler sit out the rest of the season to ensure that he is perfectly healthy.“We’re just making sure he’s going to be fine and we’re not going to miss him if he comes back too early and hurt his neck and he’s gone for the playoffs. If he stays out for the rest of the year, we’re fine with that. We got to make sure he’s OK [for the playoffs].’’Without Chandler, the Knicks are currently riding a seven-game winning streak which is featuring newly acquired Kenyon Martin as the center. For the season, Chandler is averaging 10.7 points and 11 rebounds per game to go with an extremely efficient 64.5% field goal percentage.Follow @hoopsinjurynews!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);;js.src="";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");
