Chandler injures hip flexor


DALLAS – Dallas Mavericks center Tyson Chandler took a knee to the hip Tuesday night against Toronto and hopes it won’t keep him out of Wednesday’s game at Atlanta.

Chandler is already trying to overcome a sprained left ankle which kept him out of the Feb. 11 game against the Utah Jazz. Now this.

"I actually got hit in my hip flexor,’’ Chandler said. "Hopefully, it’ll loosen up a little bit through the night and hopefully I can get some treatment tomorrow, and hopefully it doesn’t become another problem.’’
