New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler injured his right knee in the first quarter against the Charlotte Bobcats and went to the locker room. The initial diagnosis doesn’t sound promising for the big man:


He banged knees with guard Kemba Walker and sat on the bench with ice on his knee for a couple minutes. He was then helped to the locker room by teammates and walked with a clear limp.

Chandler scored 10 points with nine rebounds and one assist in 32 minutes during Sunday’s 109-100 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves,  and coming into tonight, the 31-year-old was averaging 9.0 points, 11 rebounds and 3 blocks per game while making nearly 58 percent of his field goals.The former Defensive Player of the Year will earn a guaranteed $28.7 million over the next two seasons and New York can only hope that he stays healthy, as he’s missed an average of 22.4 games since 2008-09.
