Chandler and Udrih questionable against Suns

Tyson Chandler and Beno Udrih are both listed as questionable for Monday night’s game against the Suns, the Knicks announced.

We were told a week ago that Chandler was dealing with an upper respiratory infection and that it was making it’s way around the locker room. Yet, here we stand on Monday and Chandler is questionable and no other player has missed time with this ailment.

The Knicks are going to have to do better than “upper respiratory infection” if Chandler continues to miss games.

You guys think the knicks make any moves by the deadline? Or go to war with this current team and make moves in offseason?

This just in. The flu is an illness. Illnesses can make people not feel good for a few days/weeks.

I would trade Tyson Chandler and Cole Aldrich to Phoenix for Emeka Okafor (expiring contract), Alex Len, and one of Phoenix four 1st round picks in 2014 and Phoenix 2015 1st round pick!

Don't rock the boat.  They're managing fine without him.  Let him get fully healthy, and then let's see where we are.  K-Mart and STAT are playing BIG, and are both in a groove.  Let's keep the good times rollin'.

What is our investigative reporter getting at? Does he think TC actually has a high ankle sprain, and they are calling it the flu?

What friggin difference does it make. They used to say flu like symptoms instead of saying the flu.

When's Pablo getting back?  I haven't heard anything about it but I thought he was supposed to be good by now.  We really don't need Udrih when Ray's healthy, but I'll give the guy some credit for doing a mostly passable job when pressed into service.  He was probably better than Ray was, which isn't so much a compliment as it is damning praise because of the way Ray played to start the season.


When Tyson comes back, hopefully Woody will play him less.  He should basically be splitting minutes with Kmart at the 5.  25-30 max for Tyson.

@akamarb Nick Young is terrible. He is a less athletic version of JR smith

Knee inflammation and he is much too slow footed--doesn't work out enough I believe.

@Juan Maldonado You are right on the money.If I am S. Mills, I would concentrate my time trying to get that done ASAP. For some reasons, The Knicks seem to make it more complicated than it needs to be.

Why dont players cone to New York? Its the Mecca son! Out here in Cali, people dont like when i say that! They have no idea about New York.

@OLD_KNICK I wouldn't trade Chandler, period. That would mean relying on Kmart for the rest of the season and going small forever.

You can also extend him next season with a discount

Chandler's always been a commodity in this league. 

But we need him desperately.

@babyfaceWe should be able to have a 6 game winning streak with Phx and Charlotte up next before going to Indy. 

We need to take these next 2 games!

@ds2488 When Tyson was on Dallas the year they won it all he averaged about 25 minutes a game.  They kept him fresh and had 2 back up centers for him.  That is what we should be doing.  Its our own fault for playing him so much his first two seasons here with no real back up.

Why dont we sign Bynum to backup tyson? We could release Cole Aldrich. Or sign Andre Miller and release Beno.

@ds2488 Read to today he is supposed to be back by the end of this week.

@BiggieSmalls He is suggesting there could be something more serious they are hiding from us...? I mean, I am pretty sure you remember Rasheed Wallace being day-to-day then out for the year. Same with Jeremy Lin. Same with the countless other not-reported surgeries, etc.


I have never - in my life - seen a two-week URI...

@BiggieSmalls 

He is insinuating that the Knicks may be hiding something...in fairness, they have dropped some surgery surprises on the fans in the past.

@Juan Maldonado Let's be real, it takes a special brand of player to want to wanna come to NY and successfully navigate through the pile of crap and scrutiny the media and fans constantly place you under.

Just look at Melo, easiliy the hardest worker on our team, our best player, the one who makes everything happens, yet a strong portion of the fanbase gives zero appreciation, some hate, some nitpick at everything to find ways to knock on him, others want him to be traded....

In Portland, LA has a good thing going on. He has a young team with a superstar in the making, and the fan base actually appreciates what he brings to the table every day.

@Kiyan Carter The Pistons would never trade Drummond for Chandler.  Drummond is a beast.

@VerySilentJay If the Knicks are a mess by the trading deadline, and can get back a good young rotation player, and a first round pick, I'd tade Chandler.   It all depends on where they are come the deadline.

@xmenreturn @babyface Don't sleep on PHX, team is 21-15 playing in the West.  Bledsoe is injured, which helps, but they are a very deep team, especially in the front court.

@Juan Maldonado 

We can only offer the vet minimum. Bynum is looking for money, playing time, and a ring. I'm sure if wanted to play for the minimum, we would sign him instantly.

@DolanitisDr @BiggieSmalls I don't know, I think it's reaching.

Even though the medica staffl are a shady bunch, I we're going overboard with it.

They were straight up about Prigs, Felton, and MWP. No reason to think otherwise.

@Kiyan Carter I will speak on Jay's behalf and say he would drive Chandler to the airport. lol

@lindro88 @VerySilentJay Imo, if there was any time to trade Chandler, it'd be in his last year. Not only is it a big contract, but he's a player highly regarded by the rest of the league (unlike a strong portion of TKB). Then you could get a nice return.

Imo, by the deadline, the Knicks will be within the top 8 and looking to climb.

@lindro88I get ya and I totally agree with you about Phx.  It's just that we at home and should make this a win.  We have dug ourselves a hole and it's time to dig out.

@xmenreturn @lindro88 I actually do think we win tonight, just pointing out this is not the old crappy Suns.  I watch them a lot, because they play a fun style.  We catch a big break with Bledsoe out, hopefully we take advantage of it.

@lindro88 I hear ya but we are playing them at home and we should be confident now to handle them. 

Besides, Biggie and akamarb has stated that we are on our way. I trust these guys because they are never wrong.

I think so 2. All he has to do is drive n keep driving! Thats how you beat us. I really think we can pull these next two out, but that Indiana game, will be the test. What do you think our final record will be? Will we win 50 games?

xmenreturn

@Juan MaldonadoTrue but if we go into that game with a 6 game winning streak maybe we will be more confident avoid a big a## whupping.

Ummm? Signing JR before a surgery? Rasheed Wallace, Jeremy Lin, Amare's unreported surgery, Shump's unreported surgery. Prigs has been shelved for a month with the foot when it was going to be two weeks...


The Knicks are 1000000 percent not straight up ever.
