Found March 15, 2013 on NBA Injury News:
Not surprisingly, Tyson Chandler sat out the Knicks game against the Portland Trail Blazers last night.  He suffered a knee contusion on Wednesday night and is still nursing that injury.  The injury on Wednesday looked far more severe than a contusion, but fortunately diagnostics came back negative.ESPN New York said Chandler was originally listed as probable for Thursdays game, but that may have been a miscommunication between the media and head coach Mike Woodson.  Woodson later clarified and said the decision to play is in Chandler's hands.  If he felt ready, he could have gone out there last night. Chandler has been every bit as important to the Knicks defense as Carmelo Anthony has been to its offense.  He can alter shots, keep players from entering the paint, and simply change the outcome of a game with his defensive presence.  And he can score.So far this season, Chandler is averaging 10.7 points per game and 11.0 rebounds per game.  Those rebounds can mean the difference between a win and a loss.  One key rebound loss is all it might take.  He will be someone the Knicks need back soon.

Why we should all stop freaking out about the Knicks (at least a little bit)

As of Friday morning, I spent 75% of my weeknights forgoing healthy sleep in order to watch the New York Knicks, which proved to be a stupid exercise because the Knicks decided to play basketball very poorly those three nights. Aside from J.R. Smith scoring 11 straight points (to the devastating chagrin of Mike Breen) in the fourth quarter against Portland to cut the Blazers’ lead...

Can the Knicks fix their free fall?

Who remembers back to early December? The New York Knicks were 14-4 with two (not one, not three, not four) 20-point victories over the Miami Heat. I do not think anyone was crowning the Knicks the Eastern Conference champs at that point, but there was some hope that they could at least give the Heat a good run. Fast forward to today where the Knicks are still a respectable 38...

How Long Can the Knicks Maintain 1st Place?

By, Charles R. Trimble III – Knickswag Contributor Sometimes it seems like the Knicks are a cursed franchised. Despite coming close, they have not won a championship in 40-years. Bernard King’s injury, numerous Game 7 heartbreaks, unfortunate suspensions and then to add insult to injury, having to witness former coach Pat Riley build a dynasty in Miami! Then you have the 2012...
