Here’s the New York Post reporting on Knicks center Tyson Chandler having to get rid of an annoying illness:
Knicks center Tyson Chandler revealed he had bronchitis and may make his return Tuesday in Charlotte as a tuneup for Thursday’s showdown in Indiana against rival Roy Hibbert.
Chandler missed his fourth straight game Monday when the Knicks topped the Suns 98-96 in overtime for their fifth straight victory, but finally showed up at the Garden to work out on the court. The Knicks public relations staff had called the illness “an upper respiratory infection.’’
Chandler had been mostly bedridden since the Knicks returned from Texas, a trip during which he pulled himself out of the game in Dallas in the first quarter. The Knicks hadn’t lost since, as they carried a four-game winning streak into Monday’s game.
