SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Knicks center Tyson Chandler is out with a strained hamstring and guard Landry Fields is out of the starting lineup for slumping New York.
Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni said before Wednesday night's game against the San Antonio Spurs that moving Fields to the bench wasn't a demotion. He said the Knicks are simply trying to find combinations that work now that the team is back to full strength.
Iman Shumpert will start in place of Fields.
The Knicks have lost five of eight and have little resembled their Jeremy Lin-inspired resurgence before the All-Star break.
Chandler was listed as day-to-day. Forward Jared Jeffries is also out with a sore right knee and is also expected to miss Friday's game against Milwaukee.
