Tyson Chandler and Amar'e Stoudemire will miss Wednesday night's game vs. the Boston Celtics, the team announced Wednesday morning. Stoudemire, who has played the best basketball he has in nearly two seasons over the past two weeks, needs a game off for his troublesome knee, and Tyson Chandler is still dealing with an as-yet-undisclosed personal issue.

The Knicks are red hot, having won four in a row, and are 3.5 games back of the Hawks for the 8th seed. Boston's in full-on tank mode, and on a back to back, so this is a sweet spot in the schedule to miss the two big men anyway. Cole Aldrich and Jeremy Tyler will likely take their minutes, with Aldrich starting.
