Chandler, Anthony exit game with knee injuries


Posted Mar 14, 2013 10:14 AM

DENVER (AP) -- New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler will not return after bruising his left knee in the second quarter against the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night.

Chandler fell to the floor after appearing to bump knees with Nuggets forward Corey Brewer. Chandler stayed down for several minutes before standing up and trying to test out the knee.

Teammate Carmelo Anthony, who scored nine points in his Denver return, left in the third quarter and will return to New York to have his balky right knee examined.

Anthony said his knee started ``tightening up'' and that he felt like he didn't ``have no pop, no power.''

He will have the knee drained, but has no timetable for a return. The Knicks play in Portland on Thursday.

Anthony said, ``there comes a point where you've got to figure it out and get to the bottom of it and move on.''

His nagging knee recently caused him to sit for three games.

Unable to put any weight on it, Chandler was assisted into the locker room by teammates. He had four points and two rebounds in nearly 18 minutes.

This is the latest blow for the banged-up Knicks, who were already without Amare Stoudemire (right knee) and Rasheed Wallace (foot).
