After missing 20 games with a broken left fibula, Knicks center Tyson Chandler will start Wednesday night in Milwaukee, head coach Mike Woodson announced earlier in the day.

Andrea Bargnani will come off the bench for New York (7-17), which is in 13th place in the Eastern Conference.

Chandler is averaging 7.3 points and 9.0 rebounds per game this season in limited action.

The 12-year veteran began practicing with the team earlier this month and started light contact drills last week.
