Tyson Chandler admitted at his exit interview on Monday that he was not fully healthy after dealing with strep throat in addition to his neck injury during the playoffs.
Chandler battled a neck issue toward the end of the regular season and he never really healed to the point where he was at full strength. Additionally, Chandler's strep throat caused him to lose weight, and he said that impacted him more than the neck issue. "I wasn't where I wanted to be (physically)," he said. "Tried to give the team everything I had." Chandler fouled out of the Game 6 loss with two points and six rebounds, and he was a complete no-show against Roy Hibbert in the second round.
