The New York Knicks have lost six games in a row, are near the bottom of the Eastern Conference and players are saying they have been frustrated with the way the season has gone thus far.

Still, head coach Mike Woodson says everything is good with the team even though the team has lost 10 of their first 13 games this season.

"I don't think I have lost the locker room," Woodson said on ESPN Radio. "I don't think I have lost players from an individual standpoint. What I have lost is a Tyson Chandler and a Raymond Felton, that is what I have lost from my starting team."

THOMSEN: Don't blame Carmelo for Knicks' woes -- he's miscast as the savior

The team is missing center Tyson Chandler, who is out with a fractured right fibula and point guard Raymond Felton, who has missed the past four contests with back and hip ailments.

"When you're losing, it's not fun," leading scorer Carmelo Anthony said Monday. "Are we having fun on the basketball court? No. The game is not fun right now. When you start pressing, pressing, pressing, it makes everything that much worse. So no, we're not having fun playing basketball."
