Chandler out, Martin back for Knicks


Posted Apr 9, 2013 7:19 PM

NEW YORK (AP) -- Tyson Chandler will the Knicks' game against Washington with a bulging disk, while Kenyon Martin returns to replace him in the lineup.

Chandler has played the past four games after missing the previous 10, scoring 15 points Sunday in a victory at Oklahoma City. He told coach Mike Woodson he was feeling soreness, and Woodson decided to rest him.

Martin missed the previous two games with a sore left knee. Woodson said the veteran would be limited to about 20-25 minutes Tuesday.

The Knicks are missing the injured Rasheed Wallace, Amare Stoudemire, Kurt Thomas and Marcus Camby, leaving them undersized against the Washington front line that includes Nene and Emeka Okafor.
