The team didn’t practice today, but Chandler came in for treatment on his sore left knee. Chandler banged his knees with Joel Anthony in Sunday’s loss to the Heat and could hardly move in the fourth quarter.

CHICAGO - Amar’e Stoudemire took part in some of the Knicks’ shootaround this morning and afterward did some back strengthening exercises. But interim coach Mike Woodson said Stoudemire wouldn’t be playing in this important back-to-back against the Bulls and Bucks.

Amar’e Stoudemire joined the Knicks on this two-game road trip that begins in Indiana and ends in Orlando.
It could be a good sign that his back is feeling a little better or maybe Stoudemire wanted to be around the team and then go home and spend a couple days in Orlando. It’s not unheard of – Baron Davis did it when the Knicks went to L.A. for the first road trip of the season and he was...Read more »

Since Mike Woodson replaced Mike D’Antoni, the Knicks have lauded their new coach for holding them accountable and have talked about how much they needed that.
By doing that, they’re more than intimating D’Antoni wasn’t holding them accountable enough.
“He was,” Amar'e Stoudemire said before the Knicks' 106-87 win over Toronto. “It’s just a matter of coach Woodson being very vocal about...Read more »
Mike Woodson ran his first practice as Knicks interim coach. They watched film, went over some defensive principles and schemes and also added some plays to the offense.
