New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler has a small non-displaced fracture of his right fibula and is expected to miss four to six weeks, the team announced Wednesday.

Chandler left Tuesday's game against the Charlotte Bobcats in the first quarter after suffering the injury during a collision with Charlotte point guard Kemba Walker.

Further tests to Chandler's injury taken Wednesday showed the fracture.

The Knicks say Chandler, the 2011 Defensive Player of the Year, did not suffer any ligament or nerve damage will not need surgery.
