Knicks forward Wilson Chandler was busted on a pot possession charge after cops pulled him over last night in Queens, police said.
Chandler, who turned 23 last week, was carrying what was described as a "small amount" of marijuana when cops pulled over the 2010 Mercedes-Benz he was riding in near 94th Avenue and 213th Street in Queens at 11:30 p.m., police said.
Cops decided to search Chandler after they smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle, police said. Chandler was issued a desk appearance ticket for the misdemeanor charge.
Chandler missed the final month of the season because of a strained groin; He is scheduled to undergo a sports hernia surgery and will need six to eight weeks to recover. Chandler was drafted by the Knicks in 2007.

He's almost getting to the untradeable level. Injured every year and now this. Forget any scenario where Chandler gets us something of value (e.g. Rubio). We might as well keep him.
