Amar'e Stoudemire Still Out For Knicks

NEW YORK (WFAN) -- It was good news, bad news for the Knicks on Tuesday.

New York will have center Tyson Chandler in the lineup against Boston tonight, despite having a "knot" in his left leg.

Chandler injured his knee in a collision with Joel Anthony of the Miami Heat on Sunday.

"I'm alright," Chandler said, according to the New York Post. "I just banged knees. I know the difference between a banged knee and a hurt knee. I feel I have a knot in my leg right now."

Interim coach Mike Woodson declared injured forward Amar'e Stoudemire out against the Celtics. He's considered day to day with a bulging disc.

"I'm sure when he's ready they'll let me know," said Woodson. "It's up to Amar'e and his doctors. When he tells me he's ready to play, I'm going to put him back in the lineup."

On Monday, Knicks star Carmelo Anthony said Stoudemire's workouts have been going "extremely well."

"(Stoudemire) is there early before we get there," he told WFAN's Boomer & Carton. "And then after, when we leave, he works out again."

When do you expect Stoudemire back? Sound off in the comments below...
