Chandler, who anchors the Knicks' defense, sustained a small, non-displaced fracture of his right fibula during Tuesday's loss to Charlotte after colliding with Bobcats point guard Kemba Walker.
Tests showed the 2011-12 NBA Defensive Player of the Year had no ligament or nerve damage and that surgery won't be required.
Chandler was averaging 7.3 points, 9.0 rebounds and 2.5 blocks in four games this season.
