Looks like his knee soreness is nothing more than “being thrown into the fire” after sitting at home for so long. The Knicks need to monitor his knee because Kenyon is very important to the Knicks for the rest of the year and playoffs. Tyson is a different story. Not sure what percentage he is at, but his mobility did not look good tonight. If he needs to rest then so be it. It is not worth the risk if he cannot play at his usual level.

  • Knee soreness! Let me tell you a few things. A 35 year old guy who has been operated on for his knee is at risk for repeated injury and surgery all the time (look at Amare). Mark my words, he will go down or not be able to play at that level at the playoffs. Tyson Chandler cannot look at the rim w/o grimacing. Neck injury is a lifelong problem. Certainly won't heal in 2 weeks. Melo has a Baker's cyst in his knee. Good for a few weeks once drained, it's only a matter of time till it comes back. Shump is still not himself, unlikely he'll ever be. Marcus is good for a game or 2 before his foot gives up again. JKidd's back is a ticking bomb that could go off at any minute. Stat, Kurt Thomas, Sheed are all done. I'll be shocked if they can ever play at that level again. So why is this all happenning? The coaches on this team are treating the athletes like animals. They are being thrown into physical games before they heal (as in Chandler). Why? So Woody can say he won the Atlantic Division. He knows he cannot win anything else, so the only way to keep his job is to say "See I did what I promised". D'antoni did the same **** with Jeremy Lin, he ended up sitting out the playoffs with knee injury. This team's coaches, rehab people and surgeons suck, that's why young or old everybody is falling apart.
