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.
Mar 17 - 11:00 PM

Wilson Chandler matched his season-high of 26 points in a losing effort on Tuesday vs. the Lakers, hitting 11-of-16 shots in 41 minutes.

He led all Nuggets in minutes played, a surprise for a player that missed a game last week with a hip injury that has been bothering him for a while. He added 10 rebounds, four assists, two steals and four triples in what was arguably his line of the season, but his strong play is nothing new. Even before this outburst, Chandler was averaging 13.3 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.5 triples since the break.
Mar 14 - 1:27 AM

Wilson Chandler (hip) racked up 16 points, six rebounds, three assists and one block on Sunday vs. the Kings.

Chandler looked good, playing 26 minutes while going a very effective 6-of-9 from the field, including 2-of-3 from behind the 3-point line. He was returning from a one-game absence after having an injection in his hip, but didn't appear to play with any type of restrictions. He did catch extra rest for longer periods in the second half with the game mostly out of hand, but owners can expect to have him for all of Denver's games next week.
Mar 11 - 8:03 PM

Wilson Chandler (hip) will return to the starting lineup on Sunday vs. Sacramento, sending Will Barton back to the bench.

Chandler shouldn't be dealing with a minutes limit today considering he only missed one game, and with a favorable matchup against the Kings, owners might as well get him active. Barton takes a minor hit with the return to the second unit, but he's still worth deploying in most settings.
Mar 11 - 3:42 PM

Wilson Chandler (hip soreness) is probable to play against the Kings on Sunday.

He missed Friday's game against the Lakers, and getting a probable tag for tomorrow likely means he was held out as a precaution. Chandler has dealt with a lot of hip injuries before and has had surgery, so it's possible this becomes an issue later. It was Juan Hernangomez picking up the most minutes on Friday, but he's not an add.
Mar 10 - 3:24 PM

Wilson Chandler (right hip soreness) will not play on Friday vs. the Lakers.

Coach Michael Malone said Chandler's hip has been bothering him for a while and this is the same hip that required surgery and kept him out for a season. Will Barton will likely start and is looking at heavy minutes either way, and we could see Trey Lyles, Malik Beasley or even Darrell Arthur pick up some minutes as well.
Mar 9 - 7:48 PM

Wilson Chandler (right hip soreness) is questionable to face the Lakers on Friday.

This is the same right hip that required surgery and kept him out for a season, so this is something to watch. Chandler has been great lately, but the Nuggets may choose to hold him out. Will Barton should see a few more minutes and is a good bet to start. We could see more Malik Beasley or Darrell Arthur help out, too.
