Chandler could return on Wednesday

Tyson Chandler could return to the lineup on Wednesday (Berman).

With Kenyon Martin sidelined, Chandler has not been ruled out for the game against the Bucks.

He will be re-evaluated on Monday afternoon and could be cleared by the medical staff.

I see another "adjustment" period ahead where it will again be "unfair" to judge the team or the coach. Obviously, on offense, after leaving an "Iso_driving" lane for Melo, and giving Chandler room for rebounding and put-backs, Bargs will find himself forced to work for the ball out on the arc where he is least effective. Can STAT be effective where he has been down low if Chandler is lurking down there. And just as obvious, the minutes and the rotation will be changed again.


I see a period of adjustment while Chandler chips off the rust (thank goodness that he doesn't have to get used to shooting again), gets his timing back, and gets used to his team-mates again. Eventually, it will be mid-season and the usual excuses will still be used if the team reverts to its bad play.  I guess it doesn't matter because once again, this isn't the year; 2015 is the new "NOW' year.

only move i think we should make right now is release Chris Smith and sign Troy Daniels, dude has a quick release and can light it up from 3, love to see what he could do, think he could def help offensively

he was running and practicing last week but no contact... he could be seeing contact today in practice to see how he feels...

There's no way he's fully healed or ready to return.

Yes! Now lets see if Tyson being injured was the reason for the disgusting start to the season or if we just suck was the reason.

@po_diddley Healed and conditioned are two different things.  His bone is healed, the conditioning may not be there however.

@po_diddley why, they said 4-6 weeks when injury happened and if i'm not mistaken its 5+ weeks now. You dont know if he's ready to return or not, nor do you know how his body heals.

@Isaac Miller I've been thinking this exact same thing. We can't underestimate the leadership that Tyson has on the court.

@orlando_knickfan @po_diddley I believe (and correct me if I am wrong) that Tyson stated that he was a lot further along then he thought he would be as far as conditioning when he started to run again. Hopefully its not as much of an issue but nothing matters until he hits the court. Needs a few games to get rhythm back anyway.

That's right and the defensive prowess... we've been getting murdered in the paint

@bockers  

Starting in 2013-14, the team receiving the player cannot be above the "apron" ($4 million above the tax level) after the trade1, 2. A team above the apron can receive a player in a sign-and-trade if the trade reduces the team's payroll and the team finishes the trade below the apron.

Any S&T would need to see the Knicks below $75.4 million. That's going to hamper a team with a $90 million payroll.

@bockers Hindsight is 20/20. There was no reason to amnesty STAT when the Knicks used their one amnesty waiver. They had 2/3s of the big three they were trying to put together. Outside of hurting his back in the playoffs during warm-ups, STAT had played great basketball that season. Wouldn't it be great if we all could go back and have do-overs on decisions that when we made them, they sounded and felt right at the time. But that's the difference between real-life sports and fantasy sports.
