Back on Halloween night in Chicago, Iman Shumpert and Tyson Chandler got into a shouting match on the bench because of a defensive breakdown against the Bulls, according to a source. It would start a trend of bench blowups on the Knicks — a club that seems to be fighting one another instead of pulling together. Carmelo Anthony has made several morbid references during the current nine-game losing streak about the team having to “stay together.’’ It’s the Knicks’ longest losing streak since 2006.

Tyson Chandler believes he’ll return to the New York Knicks' lineup in the semi-near future, but just how soon is open for debate. Coach Mike Woodson said at Friday’s shootaround that his starting center could be back in about two weeks. But Chandler, recovering from a non-displaced fracture of his right fibula, wasn’t quite ready to confirm that as his team prepared to face the Denver Nuggets. “I don’t want to put a timetable on it right now,” Chandler said. “I’m feeling better. I’m starting to do a little more. But we’re just kind of taking it as it goes.” ESPN.com

Chandler insisted there have been no hiccups with his rehab, but the process has to run its due course. In the meantime, Chandler’s Knicks have dropped seven consecutive games. He said it’s been a difficult to sit and watch without being able to help. “From my perspective it’s tough to watch, but the guys out there, we just have to play the game and have fun, trust in one another,” he said. “When times get tough, you have to lean on one another.” ESPN.com

Before meeting with reporters at UCLA, Woodson went on his ESPN radio show to deny he’s starting to lose the players. Knicks owner James Dolan told The Post last week Woodson’s job is safe because all the players “respect’’ him. “I don’t think I have lost the locker room,” Woodson said. “I don’t think I have lost players from an individual standpoint. What I have lost is a Tyson Chandler and a Raymond Felton, that is what I have lost from my starting team. And I don’t know if you can go on any roster and take two starters out of their roster and they still survive.’’ New York Post

The Rose situation and the Knicks' health concerns have Mike Woodson believing the right thing is to be cautious with Tyson Chandler, who broke a bone in his right leg Nov. 5. The timetable given for his return was four to six weeks. Woodson made it sound as if it will be closer to six than four. "He's got to go through conditioning and all of that once he's cleared to go back on the floor and play," he said. "I still say it's some time." Newsday

Tyson Chandler's injury was bad news early in the season, but he is actually relieved. Read: "All things being said, if it's going to be an injury, at least it's this one and not something worse," Chandler said of the small, non-displaced fracture in his leg... Rather it be a fracture than ligament damage." Remember, Chandler suffered a bone bruise in the last game of the preseason last season. He didn't miss the season opener, but it was the first of several physical issues that hampered his season. By the playoffs, he was worn down, thinner and admittedly not himself. Sulia

Who would make your “Dream Team” when it comes to the league’s top dressers? Baron Davis: I would say Tyson Chandler and Russell Westbrook. Those would kind of be my two fashionistas. I would go with LeBron as far as that gentleman prepster meets street culture. I like James Harden, he has an original look. And probably Dwyane Wade, because Dwyane Wade, he’s the one guy who kind of actually started the whole trend of really thinking outside the box. uptownmagazine.com
