BOSTON — Tyson Chandler had a big smile on his face an hour before the Knicks faced Boston Thursday night. As he left the locker room, The Post asked him if he knew he had made his first All-Star Game. Chandler said, “Yeah, but I don’t want to jinx the good news.’’

Good news it is. For the first time in his career, Chandler is an All-Star, being selected as one of the seven Eastern reserves last night. Chandler is headed to Houston on Feb. 17, giving the Knicks two All-Stars for the first time since 2001.

Asked if he was confident going into the day, Chandler said, “You never know. I felt I was going to be an All-Star last year. I felt I had a shot in Dallas. I thought I had a shot one year in New Orleans. I wasn’t getting my hopes up.’’

Chandler , who scored five points and grabbed eight rebounds in the Knicks’ 89-86 victory, will join Carmelo Anthony, who will start at forward, next month. Chandler, who has an NBA title and Olympic gold medal, is averaging a double-double for the first time in his career — a career-best 12.2 points and 11.0 rebounds.

“I’m very thankful of my teammates putting me in this position,’’ he said.

He ranked fifth in the NBA in rebounding — second in the East — and first in field-goal percentage at 67.4 percent. But defense and leadership are his forte.

“If you take Chandler out of that lineup, the Knicks aren’t a playoff team,’’ TNT’s Kenny Smith said.

J.R. Smith, who told The Post recently he thought he had a shot because of the lack of shooting guards in the East, was denied. On TNT, Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal both said the sixth man of the year candidate was deserving.

* Raymond Felton will practice Friday at Temple University in contact drills for the first time and scrimmage. Team doctors will evaluate him tomorrow before deciding whether he can play against the Sixers.

Felton, who hasn’t played since Dec. 26, was more cautious than earlier on whether he will be cleared to return from his broken right pinkie Saturday in Philadelphia.

“There’s no need to rush back,’’ Felton said. “These guys are doing great. No need to try to come back and reinjure my hand and I’m out longer. If I have to sit out another two more games, if that’s what it takes, and come back home, that’s what I have to do. We’ll see what happens [Friday].’’

Felton said earlier this week there’s a “a big chance’’ he’ll be cleared.

* Center Marcus Camby (plantar fasciitis) has taken his boot off his left foot and could be a week away from returning. Thursday was two weeks since he reinjured his left foot in Indiana. The diagnosis was 2 to 4 weeks.

Camby said the pain has lessened.

“I don’t know yet,’’ he said when asked if he will be back next week.

Camby is not allowed to take another cortisone shot for two months. He took one in December that got him back on the court on Christmas.

Knicks coach Mike Woodson said last week he hoped point guard Raymond Felton’s return would jump-start the slumping Steve Novak.

Felton helped get Carmelo Anthony out of a recent shooting funk Sunday with his franchise-record-tying nine 3-pointers, but Novak, the Knicks’ best long-range shooter, has been silent.

“We got to get Novak to come back to where he’s supposed to be,’’ Woodson said.

In the past four games, Novak has made one 3-pointer on just five attempts. He was 0-for-1 on Sunday against the Hawks, and that was a 2-pointer that was blocked.

Novak, who signed a four-year, $15 million deal in July, is a likely candidate to be named next week to the 3-point shooting contest Feb. 16 during All-Star weekend in Houston. He might be considered the favorite.

But the Knicks need to get Novak going again in live games. When he is drilling 3-pointers, the entire team’s spirits seem to lift.

Novak thinks the recent influx to the lineup of Amar’e Stoudemire, Iman Shumpert and Felton has contributed to his lack of touches. Stoudemire, in particular, is getting the ball more on the second unit.

“Understand, in the NBA, guys aren’t going to be on it every night — there’s ups and downs,’’ Novak told The Post. “That’s how it goes in terms of scoring and how the ball is distributed, especially on a team where we have guys coming back and Shump comes back and Raymond comes back. Things are kind of changing. It’s a product of that. I’m not going to lose any confidence. I know Coach Woody has confidence in me.’’

Woodson also has said he feels Stoudemire’s inside play can complement Novak’s outside game. Felton remains the key in getting Novak 3-point looks.

“When he was out, what we missed most is the way he got in there and the defense has to help,’’ Novak said. “Whoever’s out on the floor is going to benefit from it.’’

Asked his interest in the 3-point shooting contest, Novak said, “I’d do it in a heartbeat.’’

* Jason Kidd’s back remains a major concern, and center Tyson Chandler said he still is playing with a sore neck he injured in Indiana on Jan. 10. ... James “Flight’’ White, a Slam Dunk Contest candidate, showed off his leaping ability at practice Friday, launching from the free-throw line to the rim— to the delight of Anthony and Shumpert. Anthony and White, teammates in Denver during the 2009 preseason, have become close.

* Rookie Chris Copeland made the most of the team’s trip to London, taking a two-hour train ride through the Channel Tunnel to Belgium to visit with his former team in Brussels. Copeland, however, appears in Woodson’s doghouse. He did not play in two of the past three games, only getting in against the Sixers during garbage time.

Woodson said Copeland wasn’t practicing “hard enough,’’ and has gotten on Copeland during practices for his defense. After one defensive breakdown, Woodson shouted, “See, that’s why I’m reluctant to play you!’’

Copeland said: “It’s still my first year. I still have a lot to learn, for sure. He’s trying to push me in different ways, but we have a deep team.’’

The Knicks got point guard Raymond Felton back to reignite the offense. Now coach Mike Woodson is waiting on Rasheed Wallace to reenergize a defense that allowed the Hawks to shoot 60 percent Sunday at the Garden.

There have been false hopes before, but Wallace is expected to return to practice this week, according to Woodson.

The Knicks have missed the reserve 6-foot-11 power forward — especially his zeal, moxie and 3-point shot. They are a .500 team (10-10) since they shut down Wallace in mid-December because of a stress reaction in his left foot.


EPASHEED THE CALL: The Knicks have missed the solid defense of Rasheed Wallace (left), who has been out since battling Dwight Howard and the Lakers on Dec. 13.The weekend underscored the Knicks’ steady decline on defense. Sixers point guard Jrue Holiday and Hawks point guard Jeff Teague got to the rim with ease, with little help from any of the Knicks’ interior defenders.

The return of Wallace, a Woodson favorite, could adversely affect Amar’e Stoudemire’s minutes. Though Stoudemire showed explosiveness on offense the past three games, he is starting to regress on defense despite his vow to become an elite defender. In the win over the Hawks, Stoudemire lost his man repeatedly.

Wallace breathes defense and is the Knicks’ best communicator. Woodson can’t wait for Wallace’s return, which has been postponed repeatedly by a cautious Knicks medical staff led by Dr. Lisa Callahan. Woodson predicted during Christmas Week that Wallace could be back on Jan. 1, but that did not happen. One school of thought is Dr. Callahan realizes Wallace has only so many games left in his foot, and the Knicks would rather have them down the stretch and in the playoffs than in January.

Woodson said Wallace would have been able to play Saturday against the Sixers if it were a playoff contest. That squashed the notion Wallace may not come back at all. In fact, Woodson said Wallace is closer to returning than Marcus Camby (plantar fasciitis).

One Detroit source said Wallace had foot problems during his time with the Pistons, but often played through the pain. The Pistons termed the injury a strained left arch. Wallace said last month he had “reaggravated an old injury.’’

The Post has reported the Knicks fear Wallace’s stress reaction will turn into a season-ending stress fracture if he returns too soon. They have said the rumor Wallace already has a stress fracture is “erroneous.’’

Wallace has scoffed at the report he may not return, and said he wasn’t going to let “a little sore foot’’ derail his comeback from a two-year retirement. Wallace otherwise has been mum on the injury. He has not asked for a second opinion.

One person familiar with the situation said Woodson wanted Wallace on the squad for his “leadership qualities.’’

“It’s an attitudinal thing, not stats,’’ the source said.

Stoudemire’s offensive stats are on the rise. His new post game and old dunking prowess have been on display of late. He is averaging 12.6 points on 52.1 percent shooting and 4.3 rebounds in 22.4 minutes. But in the past five games, he is averaging 17 points on 61.4 percent shooting. The Knicks are 6-6 since he returned from knee surgery.

Woodson has treated Stoudemire with kid gloves. He doesn’t want to criticize his defensive shortcomings, realizing Stoudemire has made an effort to improve, always asking questions during practice.

“He’s just active the last four, five games,’’ Woodson said of Stoudemire’s explosiveness around the rim. “He’s got to continue to ride it. He’s trying to do the right things on defense. It’s very encouraging.’’

On the radio yesterday, Woodson said: “[Stoudemire is] growing [on defense]. That’s all I can tell you. He’s more engaged and in tune to what we want done, especially on defense.”

However, Stoudemire does not seem destined to return to the starting lineup. Carmelo Anthony is viewed as the starting power forward, though Woodson said on the radio he wants to move toward playing Stoudemire, Anthony and Tyson Chandler together.

Unless Mike D’Antoni’s Lakers want Stoudemire in exchange for Pau Gasol, it would be almost impossible to deal Stoudemire’s $20 million wage at next month’s trade deadline because of salary-cap rules.

A perennial injury risk, Stoudemire likely will be shopped this summer, when he will have two years and $45 million left on his uninsured deal. The following summer, Stoudemire’s deal would be viewed as an expiring contract.

Woodson is staunch about sticking with combo guard Iman Shumpert as a starter despite his rust after being out nine months, but Jason Kidd’s back woes put into question what form the Knicks’ smallball alignment will take. On Sunday, James White started the second half for the ailing Kidd, playing with Felton and Shumpert. That may be the lineup against the Magic tomorrow, when the Knicks continue their five-game homestand.

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- New York Knicks point guard Jason Kidd will sit out of Wednesday's game against the Orlando Magic with a sore lower back.

Mike Woodson said Kidd's back is "just sore" and that, if needed, the 39-year-old point guard could play against Orlando.

"We're being cautious and we're just taking it a day at a time," Woodson said.

Kidd's lower back has flared up in recent days.

He sat out of the Knicks' optional practice last Friday after feeling soreness following New York's win in Boston the previous day. He also left the bench in the second half of games against Philadelphia and Atlanta on Saturday and Sunday to get treatment and rest his back.

Kidd played just 15 minutes against the Sixers and five against the Hawks.

Woodson said Kidd has not undergone any tests to determine the extent of the injury. The coach says Kidd will "probably" play in the Knicks' next game -- Friday at home against Milwaukee.

The Knicks, according to Woodson, are taking a conservative approach with Kidd, an 18-year veteran. They originally listed him as questionable for Wednesday's game. Kidd told Woodson after Tuesday's practice that his back was sore and the coach decided to hold him out.

"We're going to rest him and see how he feels (Thursday)," Woodson said.

The Knicks can afford to be cautious with Kidd because Raymond Felton is back in the fold. Felton returned to the floor on Jan. 26 following a near five-week absence due to a fractured right pinky.

"(Kidd)'s logged a lot of minutes since Raymond's gone down," Woodson said. "Now, Raymond's back. We can be a little more cautious, I think. If Kidd says he's a little sore then I've got to be open-minded to that, rest him and welcome him back when he's ready to come back."

Kidd played 30-plus minutes in eight of the 12 games that Felton missed. Kidd also missed four games earlier in the season with lower back spasms. It's unclear if this most recent back ailment is related to the previous injury.

With Kidd out, James White will start at shooting guard for the Knicks against Orlando. Pablo Prigioni will slide into the backup point guard role.

Kidd, who signed a three-year contract with the Knicks over the summer, has been a driving force behind their strong start.

Kidd is averaging eight points and 3.9 a.ssists in 28.5 minutes for the Knicks, who enter play tonight 1.5 games ahead of the Brooklyn Nets for first place in the Atlantic Division.

"Kidd's a big part of what we're doing here. And when it really counts I'm going to need him," Woodson said.

Kidd was not available to reporters on Wednesday morning.

Woodson had chance to try Stoudemire as spot starter tonight but passed. Yet continues to promote Melo-Amar'e-Tyson as a threesome that will see more time together as season goes on. "As we continue this journey, they are going to be on the floor more. You'll see them out there some tonight. We'll grow with that eventually as season wears on. You'll see Melo, Amar'e, Tyson together.'' The bigger concern now is Stoudemire and Tyson not meshing offensively with Stoudemire's new post game. But Woodson forsees Stoudemire getting doubled soon on the post and that will free up Tyson underneath. Woodson said teams haven't doubled Stoudemire and he is making them pay in recent games.
