NEW YORK (AP) — Tyson Chandler is back in the New York Knicks' starting lineup against Philadelphia after missing two games with a strained left hamstring.
The Knicks badly missed their defensive anchor, yielding 118 points in San Antonio and 119 in Milwaukee in the two games without him.
Chandler is averaging 11.5 points and 9.8 rebounds in his first season with the Knicks, who host the 76ers Sunday.
