Wilson Chandler (personal) and Gary Harris (ankle) will not play on Thursday vs. the Spurs.
Chandler was listed as out, but now we have official confirmation. This is a tough blow for the Nuggets because Danilo Gallinari (ankle) was just downgraded to questionable. The Nuggets play two more times this week on Saturday and Sunday, so Chandler's owners should sit tight for now. Will Barton looks like a great DFS play and we could see more of rookie Juan Hernangomez. Chandler's absence also raises Kenneth Faried's floor, especially with Darrell Arthur (knee) out.

Wilson Chandler (personal) is listed as out for Thursday against the Spurs.

Being listed as out isn't the same thing as being out, so hopefully we get another update on Thursday before the road game. Kenneth Faried has played really well in the first unit, which has cost Chandler some playing time. He's still worth owning, though. If he is indeed out, Faried, Jusuf Nurkic and Juan Hernangomez could play more.

Wilson Chandler came off the bench in Denver victory over Orlando and finished with nine points (on 4-of-12 shooting), eight rebounds, three assists, two turnovers, one 3-pointer and a steal.

Kenneth Faried slid into the starting lineup on Monday, which limited Chandler impact. It was actually the first time all season Chandler played fewer than 23 minutes. Wilson had been hot coming into Monday (averaging 17.4 points and 5.8 boards in 31.1 minutes over his last five games), so Monday's game can be viewed as a blip on the radar for the time being...

Wilson Chandler will come off the bench for Monday's game against the Magic.

Kenneth Faried will get the start in what is likely a matchup based move, but Chandler tends to get his numbers regardless of how he enters the game, so his value won't take much of a hit with the second unit. Feel free to get him active for a favorable matchup with the Magic.
Jan 16 - 4:34 PM

Wilson Chandler scored 21 points in 32 minutes against the Pacers on Thursday, adding eight rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

He likes playing overseas and tore it up in China during the NBA lockout season. After a sub-par finish to his 2016, Chandler is rolling in 2017 with averages of 17.4 points, 5.8 boards, 2.4 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.0 treys. He is a bit of a sell-high player due to trade rumors and being injury prone.
Jan 12 - 5:44 PM

Emmanuel Mudiay, Gary Harris, Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler and Nikola Jokic will start against the Pacers on Thursday.

The Nuggets go back to their usual starting lineup with most of their depth set for this one -- Darrell Arthur (leg) is out. Chandler should be looking at minutes in the low 30s, assuming his illness doesn't limit him.
Jan 12 - 2:59 PM

Wilson Chandler (illness) will play in London against the Pacers on Thursday.

He popped up on the injury report earlier today and it sounds like he's good to go. He'll obviously be a risky DFS play because he may not be able to finish the game. With Darrell Arthur (leg) out, Chandler has a good chance to start.
Jan 12 - 2:39 PM

Wilson Chandler (illness) is questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Pacers.

It feels like half the NBA is dealing with an illness right now including a few players on the Nuggets. We've seen studs like Jimmy Butler and Giannis Antetokounmpo post duds while playing through an illness, so Chandler will be very risky in DFS if he suits up. Danilo Gallinari (ankle) was originally questionable, but he's now expected to play and should benefit if Chandler sits.
Jan 12 - 10:26 AM

Wilson Chandler scored 24 points with seven rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

It looked like he was going to go bonkers with 19 points with seven minutes left in the second quarter. Chandler is also on the trade block according to ESPN's Marc Stein. He's in a really good spot for his value, so a trade would likely hurt him a bunch. He's still a hold in standard leagues.
Jan 7 - 11:05 PM

Wilson Chandler scored 11 points with seven rebounds, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes on Thursday against the Spurs.

The Nuggets elected to go with a bigger frontcourt against the San Antonio tonight, which is why Chandler moved to the bench. Expect him to go back into the starting lineup on Saturday against the Thunder and play his 30+ minutes. He scored 32 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in their last meeting.
Jan 6 - 12:21 AM

Wilson Chandler will move to the bench against the Spurs on Thursday.

The Nuggets have been good on offense with Chandler in the first unit, but coach Mike Malone may be doing this to help the defense against the Spurs big frontcourt. Chandler is still a hold here.
Jan 5 - 8:24 PM

Wilson Chandler hit 8-of-16 shots and three 3-pointers for 21 points, four rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in 37 minutes of Monday's 127-119 loss to the Warriors.

Chandler has been in a slump and dealing with a neck injury, but bounced back in a big way tonight. He hadn't scored more than 19 points in a game since Dec. 7, breaking a streak of 10 games tonight. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come from Chandler going forward.
Jan 3 - 12:55 AM

Wilson Chandler (neck) scored 10 points with nine rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes against the 76ers on Friday.

The neck issue didn't seem to really bother him with how he ran up and down the floor. Chandler has seen a slight dip in productivity lately, but him going cold is nothing new. That said, he's basically been the most consistent player on the team. He should be owned in standard leagues.

Wilson Chandler (right neck sprain/strain) will play on Friday vs. Philly.

He was listed as probable and was in no real danger of missing this one. Chandler scored 17 points in 37 minutes in his last outing, adding seven rebounds, two assists, one block, one steal and three triples. He won't get many better matchups than tonight.
Fri, Dec 30, 2016 08:29:00 PM

Wilson Chandler (right neck sprain/strain) is listed as probable for Friday night's game vs. the Sixers.

Chandler has shown no signs of an injury. He played 37 minutes on Wednesday and is averaging 32 minutes a night over the Nuggets last seven games. Look for Wilson to continue his strong play on Friday, as he has scored at least 12 points in six of those seven contests.
