Tyson Chandler, Kurt Thomas out with injuries

The ancient Knicks returned home from their West Coast trip with lousy MRI exam news for their big men Tyson Chandler and Kurt Thomas.

Chandler, who hoped he would be back for Wednesday’s game vs. Orlando, took an MRI exam on his neck and it revealed a bulging disk in his cervicalspine and he will miss approximately one more week.

Thomas, 40, got the game ball Monday night after the win in Utah and he also got bad news on his right foot. Tuesday’s MRI exam and Cat-scan showed he has an acute stress reaction surrounding a chronic stress fracture and will miss 2-4 weeks. The longer end of the timetable for Thomas would put him out until the playoffs, if he returns at all.
