NEW YORK (AP) -- Point guard Raymond Felton returned to the New York Knicks' starting lineup Tuesday against Detroit, but Tyson Chandler sat out because of an illness.
Felton missed six straight games with a strained right groin, getting hurt on Dec. 23 in his first game back after missing six with a strained left hamstring.
Chandler left the Knicks' victory in Dallas on Sunday after 4 minutes. The Knicks said he had an upper respiratory infection and started Kenyon Martin in his place at center.
Also, Metta World Peace expects to be out another two weeks after having an unspecified procedure on his knees Monday.
