Wilson Chandler double-doubled against the 76ers on Wednesday during a 99-85 loss, scoring 16 points with 11 rebounds, one assist and four 3-pointers in 40 minutes.
He played plenty of minutes at power forward and bounced back nicely from a seven-point, seven-board dud on Sunday. Chandler won't be this good, but he's worth owning in standard leagues. Mar 26 - 2:35 AM

Date:

Wilson Chandler made another start on Sunday but he shot just 3-of-9 from the field to finish with seven points, one 3-pointer, seven rebounds, three assists and one steal in just 24 minutes.

Randy Foye (illness) was a late scratch and it's likely that Chandler will return to the bench whenever Denver is at full strength. Chandler contributes in enough categories to hold value as long as he's playing 30+ minutes per game, but a move to the bench would put him on the bubble in standard leagues.
Mar 22 - 8:56 PM

Wilson Chandler (calf) started on Friday and scored 13 points on 5-of-8 shooting (including a three) with seven rebounds and three assists in 36 minutes.

Chandler will be a DNP risk but as long as he's not truly injured he should be owned in most formats.
Mar 21 - 1:23 AM

Wilson Chandler (calf) is in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Heat.

He was listed as probable earlier, and this report confirms that he'll be active and starting. Feel free to plug him into your active roster.
Mar 20 - 6:53 PM

Wilson Chandler (calf) is probable to play Friday vs. the Heat.

With Danilo Gallinari (rest) sitting this one out, Chandler is going to get all the run he can handle. He's been playing very well through the month of March, averaging 14.8 points, 5.9 rebounds, 1.1 steals, 1.7 three-pointers and 0.4 blocks per game, so go ahead and get him active.
Mar 20 - 1:11 PM

Wilson Chandler scored 23 points against the Rockets on Thursday with six rebounds, two assists, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

He voiced his opinion about the Nuggets resting players on Monday saying the move set up the Nuggets for failure. Chandler also wouldn't comment on the possibility of being rested himself, so it's possible he doesn't play on Friday on the road. As long as he's active he's worth starting in standard leagues.
Mar 19 - 11:39 PM

Wilson Chandler suggested that the Nuggets are being "set up for failure" by the team's coaches and management.

The Nuggets rested Ty Lawson, Kenneth Faried and Danilo Gallinari on Monday, and Chandler said he has "no idea" whether more players will be rested vs. Houston on Thursday. Faried offered a "no comment" when asked about his rest day, and fantasy owners should be on red alert since Thursday's game kicks off another set of back-to-back road games for the tanking Nuggets.

Wilson Chandler (knee) returned to action in Monday's loss to the Grizzlies, scoring 13 points on 4-of-10 shooting with two threes, eight boards and two steals in 36 minutes.

Getting the quick stuff out of the way, Chandler will be productive enough to use whenever he is healthy and in the lineup. Assuming the Nuggets don't get too crazy, that should be the case going forward. But therein lies the rub. "I have no idea what they are going to do," said Chandler in regards to the front office, who reportedly sat a number of key Nuggets without the players or coaches' consent tonight. The conspicuous nature of this tanking should get the NBA's attention and they may have to back off, but owners of all Nuggets assets need to be on alert.
Mar 16 - 11:24 PM

Wilson Chandler (knee soreness), Randy Foye (rest) and Darrell Arthur (calf) will not play in Sunday's game vs. the Pelicans.

Chandler is simply getting some extra rest tonight with the Nuggets on the front end of a back-to-back set, and he is still expected to play vs. the Grizzlies on Monday.The Nuggets have yet to name who will replace Chandler in the lineup, but Joffrey Lauvergene and J.J. Hickson should both be in the mix for more minutes.

Wilson Chandler played through a sore knee on Wednesday but hit just 3-of-7 shots for eight points.

He was decent tonight, with five rebounds, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer, but his owners need a lot more than that going forward. Maybe his knee problem is behind him now.
Mar 12 - 2:55 AM

Wilson Chandler (knee) is probable to play against the Hawks on Wednesday.

He left Wednesday's game against the Knicks due to a knee issue and it sounds like he's OK. Chandler has a slew of knee injuries in the past couple seasons, so there is a little cause for concern even with the probable tag. He'll still likely play, but there is a little more risk involved with an aggravation.
Mar 11 - 2:06 PM

Wilson Chandler left Monday's massive blowout win over the Knicks due to left knee soreness and did not return.

The Nuggets had a 30-point lead at the time his status was announced and we haven't seen anything about the severity of the injury. It could very well be the case that they didn't want to push things with the game in hand, and at the same time it's possible that the Nuggets don't want to push a minor injury during a tanked season. He finished with 17 points on 6-of-10 shooting, two threes, six boards and one block in 23 minutes before leaving during the third quarter.
Mar 9 - 11:00 PM

Wilson Chandler scored 26 points in a loss to the Rockets on Saturday, adding five boards, two assists, four steals and four 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

His owners are obviously pumped that he wasn't shipped out of Denver at the trade deadline, and with his groin issue now in the rear-view mirror, Chandler can hopefully build some momentum after this performance. He's averaging 15.4 points, 6.2 boards, 1.4 assists, 1.0 steal and 1.8 3-pointers over his last five games, and there is no reason to think that he will slow down anytime soon. Keep Chandler locked and loaded in all lineups until further notice.
Mar 8 - 12:37 AM

Wilson Chandler scored 16 points on 7-of-13 shooting with eight rebounds and one assist over 30 minutes in Friday's loss.

Chandler did not hit a three or have a defensive stat but as long as he's not hurt he profiles as a late-round guy.
Mar 7 - 2:23 AM

Wilson Chandler started alongside Danilo Gallinari and Kenneth Faried on Sunday, posting 14 points, two 3-pointers and eight rebounds in 34 minutes while shooting 6-of-10 from the field.

Denver lost 19 of their previous 21 games and coach Brian Shaw is grasping at straws. He switched three starting positions tonight and might do the same vs. the Bucks on Tuesday, so at the moment it's hard to rely on Chandler in standard leagues.
