Wilson Chandler played through his groin injury on Tuesday and had seven points, six rebounds and a 3-pointer on 3-of-7 shooting.
If he's not 100 percent, it's easy to see him sitting out in Wednesday's finale, and Evan Fournier (9 points on 3-of-10 shooting) could step up if Chandler is out. Apr 16 - 1:30 AM

Wilson Chandler is traveling with the team and is expected to play against the Clippers on Tuesday.

It was a surprise to see him in the lineup on Saturday, but he did leave the game with another injury and did not return. Chandler is likely looking at a game-time call and we probably won't know much until Tuesday night. There are only two games on Tuesday, so owners in daily leagues certainly should gamble on Chandler. Evan Fournier takes a hit.
Apr 14 - 4:35 PM

Wilson Chandler hit 3-of-7 shots for nine points, two rebounds, two assists, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer in 21 minutes on Saturday in his return from a groin injury, but left the game and didn't return.

Not only did he leave the game, but he also left the bench and went to the locker room, presumably for treatment on his groin. And with nothing left to play for, signs are pointing to Chandler's season being over. Evan Fournier and Randy Foye look like strong plays the rest of the way, if that's the case.
Apr 13 - 12:50 AM

Wilson Chandler (groin) is available to play against the Jazz on Saturday.

There has been very little information on Chandler for the past week, so this is a huge surprise. There's been even less detail as how he's looked in practice, so we'd guess he's going to be limited tonight. Unless you're cutting someone with little value, we'd probably to see how Chandler looks tonight before making a move to add him.
Apr 12 - 7:44 PM

Wilson Chandler (groin) won't play on Wednesday and it's uncertain if he'll return this season.

Chandler is being encouraged to play by coach Brian Shaw, but he may not risk a setback with only a handful of games remaining in a lost season. Fill-in starter Quincy Miller had a breakout game on Sunday and will look to make it two in a row vs. the Rockets.
Apr 9 - 2:01 PM

Nuggets coach Brian Shaw said there is "no change" in Wilson Chandler's status as he returns from a left groin injury.

Chandler has missed seven games, allowing Quincy Miller to take over the starting SF job, and it's fair to question whether he'll return this season. With a 33-43 record and only six games left on the schedule, Denver may opt to rest him as they look ahead to next season -- Chandler should still be on the team, as he's owed a guaranteed $6.8 million.

Apr 5 - 10:56 AM

Wilson Chandler is likely out on Friday night vs. the Grizzlies.

Quincy Miller is in the starting lineup and there continues to be very little news on the Chandler front. There's a high probability he is out for the season and should be cut in all leagues. The Nuggets are loving the small-ball lineup, so guys like Aaron Brooks and Randy Foye benefit more than Quincy Miller and Evan Fournier.
Apr 4 - 6:42 PM

Wilson Chandler (groin) is out for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans, as expected.

Chandler has openly discussed the possibility of shutting it down for the season if his groin doesn't show improvement soon. The Nuggets are starting Ty Lawson, Randy Foye, Quincy Miller, Kenneth Faried and Timofey Mozgov.
Apr 2 - 8:58 PM

Wilson Chandler (groin) will sit out again on Monday, allowing Quincy Miller to start at SF vs. the Grizzlies.

Evan Fournier, Randy Foye and Aaron Brooks also pick up extra opportunities with Chandler on the sidelines, and it's unclear if or when he might return this season. Q-Miller scored only two points in 24 minutes on Friday and shouldn't be viewed as a reliable option even while he's in the starting lineup.
Mar 31 - 1:53 PM

Wilson Chandler (groin) is listed as out for Friday's game vs. the Spurs.

This will be the fourth game out of the lineup and he might be done for the year. Evan Fournier is going to have to slide over to the three while Randy Foye has also seen time at small forward because that's how thin the Nuggets are right now. Basically, Aaron Brooks, Foye and Fournier are all options in daily leagues tonight.
Mar 28 - 2:12 PM

Wilson Chandler (groin) is out again on Wednesday and he has no clear return date.

Beat writer Chris Dempsey speculates that the Nuggets might soon consider shutting him down for the season, which makes sense since Denver isn't going anywhere this season and they're invested in Chandler's long-term health (he's owed $6.8 million next season with a partial guarantee in 2015-16). There's no reason to hang onto him in fantasy leagues.

Wilson Chandler (groin) did not play on Monday against the Thunder.

Chandler sat out on Sunday and continues to suffer injures to his lower half. Fantasy owners can look to cut him in a do-or-die situation.
Mar 24 - 6:38 PM

Wilson Chandler (strained groin) will not play on Sunday, shifting Anthony Randolph into the Nuggets' starting lineup.

With J.J. Hickson (torn ACL) done for the season, Randolph and Jan Vesely should both get solid playing time on Sunday. Whether or not Randolph will have value in Denver's upcoming three-game week depends mainly on Chandler's health, and we'll pass along all updates as they become available. Considering how easy it is to aggravate groin strains, and the fact that Chandler just returned from a hip injury, it wouldn't be surprising to see him out again on Monday.
Mar 23 - 4:24 PM

Wilson Chandler (hip) returned to action in Friday's loss to the Mavs, scoring six points on 3-of-6 shooting with four rebounds, five assists and one steal in 31 minutes.

The scoring is a problem but at least he contributed elsewhere while his offense was on pause. We're more inclined to cut him slack tonight knowing that the injection he received could easily have had lingering effects, but overall he profiles as a shutdown risk and if you're staring at a hot free agent we wouldn't fault you for rolling the dice. Just know that he could start putting up serviceable numbers in a game or two.
Mar 22 - 2:02 AM

Wilson Chandler (hip) is probable for Friday's game in Dallas.

He got a precautionary day off on Wednesday following an injection in his hip, and there's still cause for concern from a fantasy perspective -- he's averaging a mere 12.5 points on 40.0 percent shooting over Denver's past four games, with 1.8 threes, 4.0 rebounds, 1.0 assists and zero steals to his credit. Evan Fournier should head back to the bench upon Chandler's return.
