NEW YORK (AP) -Jamal Crawford missed the Knicks' game against Chicago on Sunday because of a bruised right hand, leaving New York without its normal starting backcourt.
Stephon Marbury was back with the team after missing most of the month following the death of his father, but wasn't in uniform and it isn't known when he will rejoin the lineup.
Crawford, who leads the Knicks with 19.2 points per game, was hurt Friday during practice when he banged his hand into a teammate's knee. X-rays before Sunday's game were negative, and the Knicks didn't say how long Crawford would be out.
Marbury has played in just three of 13 games since Donald Marbury died during the Knicks' loss to Phoenix on Dec. 2.
Nate Robinson and Quentin Richardson started at guard for the Knicks.
