The Knicks are now slated to open the 2012-13 NBA season on Friday at Madison Square Garden against the Miami Dream Team instead of on Thursday at the Barclays Center against the Nets.
While that may be a massive disappointment to basketball fans in the Big Apple, it could end up benefitting a couple of injured Knicks.
Centers Tyson Chandler (knee) and Marcus Camby (calf) have been banged up and could benefit from having no game Thursday. The Knicks will practice at their Westchester facility instead.
“I feel pretty good,” Chandler told reporters Wednesday. “Obviously not 100 percent, but I felt alright today.”
