The New York Knicks are in trouble. At one point, they were competing for the best record in the Eastern Conference. Now, they are sitting at 38-26, 12 1/2 games behind the Miami Heat for first place in the conference. They're still in the driver's seat for playoff seeding, but they are going to have to contend with injuries down the stretch.
Both Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler sat out last night, and the Knicks lost to the Los Angeles Clippers 90-83. Without Anthony, the Knicks are missing a large part of their offense. Without Chandler, they're missing a piece of their defense and rebounding presence.
Anthony and Chandler are both battling knee issues. Anthony had had to have fluid drained from the knee and has not been the same since he fell and re-aggravated some pain he had previously been having in his knee. Chandler hurt his knee while positioning himself for a rebound.
If the Knicks are going to make a deep run in the playoffs, they'll need both Anthony and Chandler healthy. Without one or both of them, the team will continue to struggle.
