The Atlanta Hawks have had injury issues to their center position the entire season starting with Al Horford's injury 11 games into the season and lately with Zaza Pachulia's foot injury. It looks like the Hawks will catch a break today as Knicks center Tyson Chandler is not expected to play. Amare Stoudemire will slide over to the center position.
Mike Woodson said Tyson Chandler won't play today. Landry starts. Amare plays 5.— Al Iannazzone (@Al_Iannazzone) April 22, 2012
Chandler is the vocal point of the Knicks defensive effort and their won't be any Hawks players today upset that he isn't in the lineup. Jason Collins is likely to get the start today in Zaza Pachulia's absence but Larry Drew may have to make adjustments quickly with Stoudemire at the center position.
