Wilson Chandler (left hamstring) remains "a ways away" from returning, according to coach Brett Brown.
That typically means a player's timetable is being measured in weeks, and they'll be extra cautious with Chandler given his history of hamstring injuries. He's a valuable bench player to fill multiple roles for the playoff-hungry Sixers, but he takes a big hit after approaching top-150 value in Denver last year. Oct 11 - 6:23 PM

Wilson Chandler (left hamstring) is out for at least 2-3 weeks.

He had an MRI on Saturday to confirm the diagnosis of a strain and he'll be re-evaluated in the middle of next month. Chandler suffered the injury in the first half on Friday and did not return. He's had numerous hammy issues of his career, so the 76ers med staff won't be rushing things at all. We'd consider him doubtful for the opener. With him out, Mike Muscala looked to be the bigger beneficiary early while this could thrust Furkan Korkmaz into the rotation.

Wilson Chandler (left hamstring) will not return on Friday night.

That's a rough start for the new 76er. Chandler has dealt with a slew of hamstring injuries in his career, including some missed time back in 2016 for a left hamstring strain. Considering it's preseason, the 76ers would likely be shutting Chandler down for at least a couple games. If he's limited into October, we could see some Furkan Korkmaz or more Mike Muscala.

Wilson Chandler said he's fine with coming off the bench in Philadelphia.

"[Brett Brown] just told me don’t worry about playing time, and that I’ll play," Chandler said. "Me personally, I’m not worried about coming off the bench or starting." Chandler was a starter in Denver this past season, chipping in averages of 10.0 points, 5.4 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.2 triples per game in 31.7 minutes a night, but it'll be tough for him to replicate those numbers as a reserve in Philly. He'll be a key cog in the rotation, but he's off the radar in fantasy hoops.

The Nuggets have traded Wilson Chandler and a draft consideration to the 76ers.

Denver's "draft consideration" will be a 2021 second-round pick and the rights to swap second-rounder in 2022, and Denver getting Chandler's $12.8 million off the books will give them the space to sign Will Barton to his extension. The 76ers could use a two-way, wing player like Chandler, but on such a deep team, it would be tough for him to make much noise in fantasy hoops. His departure from Denver should result in more opportunity for Barton and Juan Hernangomez.

Wilson Chandler will exercise his player option for next season.

It's a $12.8 million decision for Chandler, so it wasn't a tough call for the 31-year-old forward in what should be a tight free agency for spending. Chandler has bounced back nicely from missing the entire 2015-16 season with a only 19 games missed over the last two seasons combined, including 71 stars last year. He'll still be 32 years old and likely will be looking for one more big contract next summer.
Jun 22 - 6:22 PM

Wilson Chandler hit 3-of-9 shots (all 3-pointers) for 10 points, six rebounds and one assist in 31 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Pacers while wearing a protective mask for his nasal fracture.

He'll wear the mask the rest of the season and it might take him some time to get used to it. The good news is he played and shouldn't miss any time, but his numbers might suffer under the mask.
Apr 4 - 12:33 AM

Wilson Chandler will play through his nasal fracture against the Pacers on Tuesday.

He was a true game-time decision after sitting out on Sunday, but it looks like he should be safe to start tonight if you still need him in fantasy.
Apr 3 - 7:21 PM

Wilson Chandler (nose) is questionable to play Tuesday against the Pacers.

Chandler sat out Sunday's win over Milwaukee, which resulted in Torrey Craig drawing the start, but he did a whole lot of nothing through his 36 minutes of floor time. Trey Lyles and Juan Hernangomez will also have the opportunity for some extended run if Chandler is out again, but there's not a clear add here in fantasy hoops.

Wilson Chandler (nasal fracture) will not play on Sunday.

Chandler's absence means the Nuggets will likely give more minutes to guys like Trey Lyles and Torrey Craig, but it's not yet clear who will start in his place. Presumably, Chandler will be cleared to play after being fitted for a mask, but the Nuggets haven't offered any potential return dates.
Apr 1 - 6:10 PM

Wilson Chandler (nose contusion) will not return on Friday vs. the Thunder.

He was bleeding from the nose and will probably be evaluated for a concussion over the next 24 hours. For now, we'll call him questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Bucks. If he's out, the Nuggets will use a committee approach to soak up his minutes with guys like Trey Lyles and Torrey Craig getting a bump, but there is no clear pickup.
Mar 30 - 10:31 PM

Wilson Chandler went to the locker room on Friday against the Thunder.

It looked like he was bleeding from the nose, and maybe he's getting a concussion check. Chandler did go back to the locker room, but this didn't look as bad as some face injuries.
Mar 30 - 9:54 PM

Wilson Chandler hit 3-of-7 shots for seven points, four rebounds, three assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in 33 minutes of Tuesday's loss to the Raptors.

Chandler has hit 9-of-25 shots over his last three games and hasn't scored more than eight in any of them. He was cooking before that, and while the minutes are still there, his game just isn't following suit. The Nuggets have now lost two straight and sit 2.0 games behind the Timberwolves for the final playoff spot in the West, with the Clippers also sitting two games back.
Mar 27 - 10:04 PM

Wilson Chandler scored 26 points on 11-of-16 shooting in Monday's double-overtime loss to the Heat.

He split a pair of free throws, adding five rebounds, two steals, one block and three triples in 47 minutes. He's only gotten better since Paul Millsap returned, averaging 15.6 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.2 triples in his last five games since he missed a game with a hip issue. Where was this earlier this season?
Mar 20 - 1:21 AM

Wilson Chandler scored 10 points with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

He does get a slight boost to his value with Gary Harris (knee) out for what sounds like at least a week. Chandler should consistently be in the 30s most games and the Nuggets trailing slightly hurt him. He should be owned in standard leagues.
