Bobcats lose C Chandler to hip, elbow injuries
Charlotte Bobcats center Tyson Chandler hurt his hip and left
elbow when he crashed to the floor in the second quarter of
Wednesday’s game against Chicago and didn’t return.
Chandler tried to grab a deflected pass along the sideline when
he collided with Chicago’s James Johnson and crashed to the floor
on his left elbow and side.
An X-ray on his elbow was negative.
The injury happened not long after Bobcats coach Larry Brown
said he faced a “dilemma” over whether to play his regulars in
the final regular-season game. While Charlotte was locked into the
seventh seed in the Eastern Conference, the Bulls entered the game
in a race with Toronto for the final playoff spot.
