Chicago outshot New York 57.5 percent to 29.8 percent in the first half.
Consecutive 3-pointers by Steve Novak and Anthony brought the Knicks within 103-96 with 1:07 remaining, but Marco Belinelli hit five free throws from there to close it out.
The Knicks announced before the game that Camby, who had been starting, would miss two to four weeks after reinjuring his left foot. Woodson started Kurt Thomas in his forward spot and also benched Ronnie Brewer, who had started all but one of the first 35 games, and gave James White his third start of the season.
With Wallace still out with his foot injury and Amare Stoudemire on a minutes restriction as he plays his way back into shape following knee surgery, the Knicks lack the big bodies to face a physical team such as the Bulls.
‘‘Whenever somebody goes down, somebody has to step up,’’ Chandler said. ‘‘It’s been unfortunate for us because it’s kind of been a revolving door, in and out, guys getting hurt and banged up. But that’s not an excuse. Somebody has step up and we have to fill the spot as a team.’’
Jason Kidd missed all six shots in a dreadful, no-point, no-assists performance.
Notes: Woodson wasn’t sure if the Knicks would bring Iman Shumpert with them to London next week for their game against Detroit or leave him back in New York to work out or even play with their NBA Development League team. Shumpert has just been cleared to resume full workouts after tearing his ACL in last year’s playoffs. ... Chicago has now won or tied the season series every year since 2001 except 2010-11.
