Jerome Jordan recalled from D-League

The Knicks announced Thursday afternoon they recalled big man Jerome Jordan from the Erie Bayhawks of the NBA D-League for the second time this season.

The Knicks are hurting right now at the center position with the hobbled Tyson Chandler (hamstring strain) and Jared Jeffries (sore right knee). While Jeffries will miss Friday night's game against the Bucks, Chandler remains questionable.

Jordan appeared in five games with Erie this season, averaging 18.0 points, 8.6 rebounds and 2.8 blocks, while shooting 48.5 percent in 32.6 minutes per game. Appearing in 13 games with the Knicks, he scored 20 points and grabbed 15 rebounds over 61 minutes.
