Midway through the second quarter of tonight’s game, Tyson Chandler hit the floor after injuring his knee. He tried to walk off the court, but was unable to put pressure on it, requiring his teammates to help him off the floor. Immediately after the injury, Knicks fans began reacting, as losing Chandler for the year, due to an ACL or MCL injury, would be devastating.
While it’s still early, the Knicks have categorized Chandler’s injury as a contused left knee.
According to WiseGeek.com, a knee contusion, while usually mild, can result in the “difficulty using his or her leg for several weeks or months.”
Hopefully it’s not too serious of a contusion and Chandler will return to the court quickly.
