NEW YORK — Tyson Chandler missed his 10th straight game Sunday night because of a bulging disc in his neck, but the Knicks All-Star center said he hopes to practice Monday and return Tuesday against the Heat in Miami.
“Yeah, absolutely,” he said Sunday evening after he worked out on the court — including taking several short hook shots — for the first time since the injury surfaced after he was hit in a game March 13 at Denver. “That’s what I’m shooting for barring any setbacks.”
After dispatching the Boston Celtics 108-89, the Knicks are 8-2 and have won eight straight without Chandler, who is averaging 10.7 points and 11.0 rebounds on the season.
