NEW YORK (AP) -Rookie Wilson Chandler, whose recent strong play had been a bright spot at the end of the Knicks' dismal season, will miss the finale with a sprained left knee.
Chandler was hurt Monday night after an awkward landing while going for a rebound in the third quarter of the Knicks' 99-93 loss to the Boston Celtics. An MRI on Tuesday revealed a bone bruise, and the forward from DePaul is expected to be on crutches for two weeks.
Chandler, Isiah Thomas' last draft pick while running the Knicks, had averaged 18 points and 7.8 rebounds in his previous four games before being limited to six points Monday.
New York closes the season Wednesday at Indiana.
