Tyson Chandler and Kenyon Martin will both miss Thursday’s game against the Chicago Bulls, the team’s public relations announced on twitter.
Marcus Camby, who has been out with a planter fascia injury, is listed as doubtful.
UPDATE 6:20 PM:
Chandler and Kenyon didn’t travel with the Knicks. So they are out both games.

I’m so happy the rest of the Knicks have moved past puberty and wont be growing taller any time soon. If you are above 6’9 and play for the Knicks you are hurt, except for our future starting center Steve Novak.
With the division clinched and the #2 seed all but locked up, it is not a bad thing to just rest everyone who is injured and try to get them ready for the playoffs.
Hopefully this time healing injuries will work to get this front line ready to go. With potential match-ups with Atlanta, Chicago or Boston, they would become a lot harder if Novak and Copeland are the Centers.
Josh Smith, Al Horford, Kevin Garnett and Carlos Boozer are tough enough to deal with when the Knicks are healthy, it would be not fun to play them without Chandler or Martin come playoff time.
