Wilson Chandler    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Wilson Chandler scored nine points with five rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday. He seems to be shifting to more power forward, which could continue until Paul Millsap (wrist) gets back. Chandler did play some small forward as Trey Lyles saw more run. According to reports last year, Chandler did not like being shuffled around in the lineup. This year, you would think he should be happy as long as he's starting and playing next to the core three in Jamal Murray, Gary Harris and Nikola Jokic. He only has low-end value due to his 15.2 usage rate.

Wilson Chandler scored 18 points with four boards, one assist and two triples in 27 minutes vs. the Pistons on Tuesday. He's finally starting to get it going after his second straight 18-point outing and it's likely because his back issue is behind him. Chandler hit 6-of-11 shots and 4-of-4 free throws and has a clear path to decent fantasy value, especially with Nikola Jokic (ankle) and Paul Millsap (wrist) out. We'll see if he can keep it going vs. Boston on Wednesday.

The Nuggets fell in overtime on Sunday, despite Wilson Chandler pitching in 18 points, eight rebounds, three 3-pointers, one assist, one steal and one block in 37 minutes. Chandler matched his season-high in scoring, while the minutes were the most he's played all year. The veteran saw most of his playing time at PF tonight, as usual, but he also logged 10.9 minutes alongside Kenneth Faried and Trey Lyles. We'll need to see him string together some good games before biting.

Wilson Chandler returned to action from a back injury on Monday but hit just 1-of-11 shots for four points, seven rebounds and three assists in 27 minutes. The minutes and shots were there, but Chandler has disappointed for much of the season. He should get better soon, assuming the back problem is behind him, but Will Barton is still the player we'd rather own right now. Barton had 23 points in 41 minutes off the bench tonight.

Wilson Chandler (back) will play about 25 minutes on Monday vs. the Mavericks. "This is a long road trip with a lot of traveling, so we really have to keep an eye on that," coach Mike Malone said. "Those back injuries can be very tricky." Chandler has missed four out of the past six games, but he should be a large part of the offense tonight with the Nuggets missing two of their star big men.

Wilson Chandler (back) will be available to play Monday vs. the Mavericks. Chandler has spent the past three games on the sidelines with back issues, but it sounds like he'll be getting back to the court tonight, which will translate to fewer minutes for Juan Hernangomez and Trey Lyles. Plan accordingly.

Chandler (back) has been cleared to play in Monday's matchup with the Mavericks. Chandler is coming off a three-game layoff due to lower back pain, so there's a small chance a sees some limitations in his return. That said, he'll still likely take back in his spot in the starting lineup at small forward, which should send Juancho Hernangomez back to a bench role and likely means a few less minutes for Will Barton as well. Season-long owners can activate Chandler, though he'll be a risky play for DFS contests Monday considering hie's fresh off an injury.

Chandler (back) participated in morning shootaround, but will be a game-time call for Monday's matchup with the Mavericks, Chris Dempsey of Nuggets.com reports. Chandler has missed three consecutive games because of a sore back, but after going through shootaround Monday, it appears he's trending towards making a return to the lineup. Look for Chandler to test the back out during pregame warmups to make sure he's free of any lingering discomfort, which means a final decision on his status should be made just prior to tip off. If Chandler returns, Juancho Hernangomez would likely return to a bench role, with Will Barton also losing a few minutes.

Nuggets coach Mike Malone said Wilson Chandler (back) is "somewhere between questionable and probable" for Monday's game vs. the Mavericks. This means he'll likely be a game-time call after missing the past three contests. Chandler has been underwhelming on the stat sheet lately, but he's also been banged up. He has a great opportunity to produce with Nikola Jokic (ankle) and Paul Millsap (wrist) out, so he's worth a look as a low-end streaming option if he's a go. Juan Hernangomez could lose his minutes if Chandler is cleared.

Wilson Chandler (back) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Mavericks. Chandler has spent the past three games on the sidelines, which has allowed Juan Hernangomez to move into the starting five and Will Barton has seen some increased opportunity with the second unit. It'll be more of the same if Chandler can't give it a go tomorrow, and we should get another update following Monday morning's shootaround.
