CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Knicks coach Mike Woodson says center Tyson Chandler will return to the starting lineup Tuesday night against the Charlotte Bobcats after missing the last four games with an upper respiratory infection.

Woodson says Chandler, who is averaging 7.8 points and 7.6 rebounds in 13 games, is expected to play about 25 minutes.

Chandler last played on Jan. 4.

The Knicks have won all four games without him in the lineup and five straight overall.

The Bobcats got some good news as well as coach Steve Clifford says small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will start after missing the last 19 games with a broken hand.
