Wilson Chandler agreed to a four-year, $46 million extension with the Nuggets.
It's a solid deal for Chandler and cheap enough for the Nuggets, who look like they're set to rebuild. Chandler should continue to get minutes at both forward spots and he could have a bigger workload once the Nuggets start unloading players. Jul 11 - 11:35 PM

The Clippers are interested in exploring a trade for Wilson Chandler, sources told ESPN Los Angeles.

The team is reportedly open to dangling Jamal Crawford and C.J. Wilcox for Chandler, a deal that would make little to no sense for the Nuggets. The Clippers have very few trade assets, but Crawford's expiring deal is one of them, so expect more rumors involving the volume scorer as Los Angeles tries to find a solution to its small forward problem.
Jun 22 - 12:26 PM

Wilson Chandler scored a season-high 32 points on 12-of-23 shooting (including six treys) with six rebounds and one steal in 35 minutes on Monday against the Clippers.

If Chandler is in the lineup on Wednesday against the Warriors, then he should be in your fantasy lineup as well.
Apr 14 - 5:19 AM

Wilson Chandler got back on the right side of the ledger with 20 points, 11 rebounds, two assists, two threes and one steal in Friday's double-overtime loss to the Mavs.

Chandler hit 9-of-22 shots and logged 49 minutes as the big night gave him the shot in the arm he needed with owners. It sure looks like Melvin Hunt is going to ride his veterans to the finish line, but that could always change in an instant this late in the season.
Apr 11 - 3:42 AM

Wilson Chandler (illness) will start against the Lakers on Wednesday night.

He'll join Ty Lawson, Randy Foye, Wilson Chandler, Danilo Gallinari and Kenneth Faried. Chandler is worth starting in standard leagues tonight.
Apr 8 - 8:32 PM

Wilson Chandler (illness) is questionable to play against the Lakers on Wednesday.

The game is at home and the Nuggets are not on a back-to-back, so there are no other outside factors on Chandler here. The Nuggets have been off since Saturday, so it's tough to tell how long Chandler has been dealing with the illness. If he can't go, expect Danilo Gallinari, Randy Foye, Kenneth Faried and Will Barton to benefit. The game doesn't start until 9:00 EDT, so we may not get an update until 7:30 or later.
Apr 8 - 3:43 PM

Wilson Chandler hit just 1-of-7 shots for two points, three rebounds and one assist in 25 minutes on Wednesday.

The good news is that he's not hurt, and he had scored in double digits in his previous three games. Write this game off as a dud and expect him to return to form on Friday. Although he'll have a tough matchup with Kawhi Leonard and the Spurs.
Apr 2 - 1:15 AM

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

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.

Mar 17 - 9:49 AM

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.
