Stoudemire will sit out due to what the team is calling a "recovery day."

Stoudemire has played a total of 56 minutes over the past two games. He began the season on a minutes restriction in an effort to protect his oft-injured knees, and has taken games off throughout the season in an effort to prevent injury.

The veteran power forward has been an integral part of the Knicks' success of late. The team is 4-1 since he was inserted into the starting lineup.

Chandler will miss his second straight game due to personal reasons. It is unclear if he will be back for the Knicks' next game against Milwaukee on Saturday.
