Tyson Chandler injury: Knicks center has taped wrist, says he'll be 'fine'

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

Knicks big man Tyson Chandler spoke to media with a taped wrist Saturday morning, but he said he'll be good to go for Saturday's Game 6.

Adding to his list of physical ailments, New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler will play through a wrist injury in Saturday's Game 6 against the Indiana Pacers, Ian Begley of ESPN New York reports. Tape covered the big man's wrist as he spoke with media in the morning.

For Chandler, this is just the latest injury he'll have to play through this offseason. Already dealing with knee and back injuries sustained in the Knicks' Game 5 victory, he insisted Saturday morning he's "fine" but it's reasonable to wonder how he'll play considering the issues he's already had this postseason.

After averaging a double-double during the regular season, Chandler has put up six points and 7.5 rebounds per game in 11 postseason contests this year. His presence on the offensive end has been minimal, but New York can hardly afford to lose his post presence on the other end of the court.
