Both players are dealing with knee injuries. Anthony joined the team in Los Angeles after having his knee drained in New York. He practiced on a limited basis Saturday, but has missed four of the Knicks’ past seven games.
Chandler suffered a left knee contusion late in the first half of the Knicks’ loss to the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday and did not play in the team’s loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Thursday.
“Yes, we went through shootaround thinking that (Chandler and Anthony will not play),” Knicks head coach Mike Woodson said. “We got these (other players) in uniform ready to play.”
The Knicks (38-25) are just one game ahead of the Brooklyn Nets for first place in the Atlantic Division.
