Chandler, Martin will be ready for playoffs

4/15/2013

Injured New York Knicks big men Tyson Chandler and Kenyon Martin will recover in time to play in the postseason, coach Mike Woodson said on Sunday.

"They will be there, yes," Woodson said before the Knicks-Pacers game.

There is also a chance that veteran forward Rasheed Wallace will available in the playoffs.

Wallace has not played since Dec. 13 due to a stress fracture in his left foot. He had surgery in late February to repair the injury. Woodson said Wallace has been running for the past few days. There is a chance the 38-year-old will play in the Knicks' game Monday in Charlotte.

"We're just going to gauge it and see how he feels tomorrow from today's workout and go from there," Woodson said.

Chandler and Martin are likely to sit out the Knicks' final two regular-season games, but Woodson said both players' injuries have improved in recent days.
