X-rays negative, but Bulls' Chandler questionable
"I don't really know right now," Chandler said after Monday's practice. "Right now, it's kind of sore. I'll just have to see how it feels tomorrow."
The Bulls beat the Heat 93-87 on Sunday to even the best-of-seven series at 2-2, but they might have lost Chandler in the process. The injury occurred during the final minute of Game 4 as the teams battled for a rebound. Chandler, who was wearing a walking boot on Monday, said the pain was mostly in the front of his foot and Achilles tendon.
"When I went down, I felt like it was really bad," said Chandler, who was wearing a walking boot Monday. "After a while, it calms down a little bit. It's real sore this morning."
Chandler, the Bulls' backup to Michael Sweetney, scored one point and grabbed three rebounds in 22 minutes on Sunday.
"We'll just have to rely on our depth," coach Scott Skiles said. "It's not something we can control right now. I saw the play several times, and he rolled it pretty good."
