D'Antoni: Chandler's wrist pain lingers
By Ian Begley
According to Mike D'Antoni, Tyson Chandler's left wrist hasn't improved much over the past three practice days.
"I think it's something that he's going to have to live with for a month, two months. Hopefully it will get better," D'Antoni said. "... He's just going to have to fight through it."
Chandler originally hurt his wrist against Dallas on Feb. 19 when he used his hands to brace a hard fall to the floor. Including Sunday's game against Boston, he has played six games since. On Sunday, he was wearing a black protective glove on his left hand, apparently to protect the injury.
JORDAN SHOULD BE BACK NEXT WEEKEND: D'Antoni said center Jerome Jordan will spend the week in the D-League with the Erie Bayhawks. With the Knicks on the road all week, this gives Jordan an opportunity to develop rather than sit on the bench. Jordan is expected to rejoin the team on Saturday when they return to New York. The Knicks play Philadelphia at home next Sunday.
