Wilson Chandler was quiet on Wednesday with five points on 2-of-7 shooting, three assists, one rebound and one steal in 26 minutes.
Chandler's dimes were the second-most of any starter tonight, an issue coach Brett Brown has discussed recently. "[Sharing the ball] is a mentality, it’s a statement," Brown said on Tuesday. Philly had 39 assists on Tuesday but they had more turnovers (24) than assists (23) tonight, but at least Chandler should stay in his good graces. He appeared fine after a quick trip to the locker room tonight, but he's not a fantasy option outside of the deepest leagues. Jan 9 - 10:11 PM

Wilson Chandler returned from an illness Tuesday and had two points, five rebounds, three assists and a steal in 23 minutes of a win over the Wizards.

He pushed Jonah Bolden back to the bench, and Bolden had just four points and three boards in 18 minutes. Chandler's return does more to hurt Bolden, than it does offering fantasy value from Chandler. Leave him on waivers.
Jan 8 - 9:35 PM

Wilson Chandler (illness) was a full participant at Monday's practice.

This means he should be all set to play on Tuesday vs. the Wizards. Jonah Bolden has made strides recently, but Chandler's return means he won't get as much run at the four. Chandler barely cracked the top-200 in standard leagues over the past month.
Jan 7 - 1:03 PM

Wilson Chandler (illness) is out against the Mavs on Saturday.

It's his second game in a row out of the lineup. On Wednesday, the 76ers went with a big lineup of Jonah Bolden and Furkan Korkmaz to replace Chandler and Jimmy Butler, so that could be on the table again. Mike Muscala and Landry Shamet could also be options against this Mavs squad.
Jan 5 - 5:30 PM

Wilson Chandler (illness) is questionable for Saturday against the Mavericks.

He missed Wednesday night in Phoenix, and there won't be as much attention on this one as Jimmy Butler's illness. Chandler was not able to practice on Friday, and we may have to wait until Saturday for an update. If he's out, Mike Muscala, Furkan Korkmaz and Jonah Bolden could play more.
Jan 4 - 5:46 PM

Wilson Chandler (upper respiratory infection) was unable to practice with the team on Friday.

Chandler did not play Wednesday vs. the Suns due to same bug that sidelined Jimmy Butler. Jonah Bolden made his first NBA start on Wednesday, posting four points, four rebounds and two assists in 16 minutes of action. Furkan Korkmaz started as well. Both players would see extra playing time again if Chandler and Butler are ruled out on Saturday as well.
Jan 4 - 2:09 PM

Wilson Chandler (upper respiratory infection) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Suns.

Apparently, Chandler caught the same bug that Jimmy Butler is dealing with, and with Joel Embiid (knee) being listed as questionable tonight, Mike Muscala could be looking at major minutes as a starter. If Embiid joins Chandler and Butler on the sidelines, Muscala will make for an extremely attractive DFS target with an uptempo matchup in Phoenix. Stay tuned.
Jan 2 - 7:06 PM

Wilson Chandler (left quad) returned to action on Tuesday vs. the Celtics, scoring 15 points with five rebounds, three assists and three triples.

He wasn't limited at all coming off a one-game absence, playing 40 minutes on the night due to the second unit's struggles -- the bench combined for 13 points. Chandler comes through with a nice line once in a while, but he didn't crack the top-150 in standard leagues over the past month. He's more of a deep-league guy or a streamer on quiet nights.

Wilson Chandler (left quad) will return to the starting lineup for Tuesday's Christmas Day game against the Celtics, sending Mike Muscala back to the second unit.

Chandler should see his normal minutes in his return from a one-game absence, so Muscala isn't all that attractive as a potential streamer. Chandler tends to be good for a few triples, but he's not doing much outside of that.
Tue, Dec 25, 2018 04:13:00 PM

Wilson Chandler (quad) is questionable for Tuesday against the Celtics.

He missed Saturday with his second different stint on the sidelines due to a left quad contusion. Chandler was playing without a minutes limit, but the 76ers may be careful with him because he hasn't played since Dec. 19. If he can't go, Mike Muscala, Jonah Bolden and Furkan Korkmaz could see more run.

Wilson Chandler (left quad contusion) is listed as out Saturday against the Raptors.

He did have a left quad contusion earlier in December, so it could be an aggravation. This also isn't a back-to-back set for Chandler and he's struggled to stay on the floor for years now. With him out, Mike Muscala should get a few minutes while Furkan Korkmaz may get another chance in the starting lineup.

Wilson Chandler chipped in 11 points, seven rebounds, three assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes of action on Sunday.

The veteran plays a marginal role in Philly's offense, with a usage rate threatening to hit single-digits, and his 10 shot attempts actually tied a season high. His minutes are up lately and he's getting some boards, 3-pointers and blocks, but not enough to help owners outside of very deep leagues.
Sun, Dec 16, 2018 06:34:00 PM

Wilson Chandler scored nine points (3-of-7 FGs) with three rebounds, four assists, and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Nets on Wednesday.

Chandler is an afterthought in the Sixers' offense and isn't worth owning in most leagues.
Wed, Dec 12, 2018 11:39:00 PM

Wilson Chandler (quad) scored three points (1-of-6 FGs) with six rebounds, two assists, and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the Raptors on Wednesday.

Chandler returned after a one-game absence due to a bruised quad. He's not worth owning in most leagues at this point.
Thu, Dec 6, 2018 01:16:00 AM

Wilson Chandler (left quad) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice and is not on the injury report for Wednesday's game vs. Toronto.

Chandler injured his quad last Friday and was unable to play Sunday vs. the Grizzlies. However, he is clearly moving in the right direction. The fact that he was able to get in a full practice is certainly encouraging. Because he is not listed on the injury report, we can assume he's good to go for Wednesday night. Mike Muscala started in place of Chandler on Sunday.
