New York Knicks centre Tyson Chandler is closing in on a comeback from the broken leg injury suffered on November 5, and hopes to return to action before the New Year, reports NBA.com.

The 31-year-old picked up a small fracture in the fibula in his lower leg, and the initial diagnosis estimated he would be sidelined for around four to six weeks.

Mike Woodson's side have been struggling in the absence of the 7ft 1in star, who was averaging 9.0 rebounds and 7.3 points in the four games he played prior to the injury.

The Knicks are 4-12 without Chandler, and so will be hoping that he's not far away from a return, having stepped up his recovery with some one-on-one play and conditioning work.

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday night - before the struggling Knicks fell to a 94-109 defeat against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Ohio - Chandler confirmed that his leg is feeling better, and that he's not had any setbacks, but could not put a definitive date on his comeback.
