Tyson Chandler scored just two points on 1-of-5 shooting in Sunday's game vs. the Pacers, but he still managed to grab 11 boards with two assists, one steal and one block in 28 minutes.
Roy Hibbert won the battle in the paint tonight for the Pacers, and Chandler will likely be very frustrated with himself after this performance. Chandler has slowed down since the All-Star break, but there haven't been any reports of a setback with his ankle. With averages of 6.8 points, 11.8 boards, 1.8 assists and 0.8 blocks over his last five games, Chandler is still worth owing in most leagues. Mar 29 - 10:11 PM

Tyson Chandler had just three points, eight rebounds and four blocks on Wednesday against Nikola Vucevic.

Chandler had just five points in his previous game, so he's due to break out of his scoring funk any day now.
Mar 19 - 1:31 AM

Tyson Chandler finished Tuesday's ugly home loss with nine points, 10 rebounds, one steal and one block in 23 minutes vs. the Cavaliers.

He's averaging 7.5 points, 8.8 rebounds, 0.3 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.8 blocks in four games since returning from a hip injury. He's playing right around his season-average 30.8 minutes per game but still doesn't look right on the court, and he had no explosion around the rim tonight. Patience is warranted and Chandler should get going soon, though he has a tough matchup vs. DeAndre Jordan on Friday.
Mar 10 - 11:56 PM

Tyson Chandler returned from a hip injury on Thursday with four points, 14 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 28 minutes.

He looked fine despite having one of his worst shooting games, making 1-of-4 from the field. It's a good sign to see Chandler already close to 30 minutes after missing three games, so he should have a better performance against the Warriors on Friday.

Tyson Chandler (hip) will start against the Blazers on Thursday.

He was expected to play yesterday and he should be ready to go for a full amount of minutes. The Mavs have been getting cute with their lineups without Chandler, but they finally get their anchor back on defense. Al-Farouq Aminu should still get a lot of Chandler Parsons' minutes even though Richard Jefferson is starting.
Mar 5 - 10:26 PM

Updating a previous report, Tyson Chandler (hip) will play Thursday vs. the Trail Blazers.

Chandler has been sidelined for the past two games, but he'll return to the starting lineup tonight for what should be an exciting uptempo game against Portland. Bernard James will head back to the bench with this news, and his demotion to the second unit will make him a non-factor in nearly all leagues. Get Tyson active.
Mar 5 - 3:54 PM

Tyson Chandler (hip) went through shootaround this morning, and he remains probable for Thursday's game vs. Portland.

Head coach Rick Carlisle said "it's looking good," for Chandler suiting up for tonight's game, a move that will send Bernard James back to the bench and to irrelevancy in most leagues. Go ahead and get Chandler in your active lineups.
Mar 5 - 2:46 PM

Tyson Chandler (hip) is probable to play against the Blazers on Thursday.

He needed three games to get over his hip injury and should be ready to go. Chandler's numbers fell off a tad in February, averaging 10.1 points, 10.8 boards and 0.8 blocks in 29.4 minutes per game. He should be a good bet for a double-double in an up-tempo game on Thursday. Bernard James will move to the bench and may not play at all.
Mar 4 - 3:51 PM

Tyson Chandler (hip) will travel with the Mavs on their upcoming three-game road trip.

Chandler has missed the Mavs' previous three games with a hip injury, and we'll be considering him questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Trail Blazers. If he's unable to go, Bernard James will have an opportunity to slide into the starting lineup, but with averages of just 3.5 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 2.0 blocks per game as a starter his value is limited to deeper leagues.
Mar 3 - 3:11 PM

Tyson Chandler (hip) and Chandler Parsons (ankle) are both out against the Pelicans.

The Mavericks could once again go small with Dirk Nowitzki at center while starting J.J. Barea alongside both Rajon Rondo and Monta Ellis in the backcourt, but it's also conceivable the team goes with a more traditional look and starts Bernard James at center. As for Parsons, Richard Jefferson should once again draw the start, and he's averaging 10.8 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.0 triples over eight games (29 minutes in that role).

Tyson Chandler (hip) will not play on Saturday night against the Nets.

Bernard James will be the starting center again tonight. Chandler is getting close to a return and he should be back at some point next week. Expect to see more Al-Farouq Aminu getting minutes at power forward, too.
Feb 28 - 7:55 PM

Tyson Chandler (hip) will be a game-time decision on Saturday against the Nets according to head coach Rick Carlisle.

Chandler wasn't able to play on Wednesday vs. the Hawks, but the good news was that he made it through a full practice on Friday. His owners will have to check back prior to tip-off before activating him in lineups, but he would still be a must-start option even if he is not 100 percent. Bernard James scored seven points with 11 rebounds and two blocks against the Hawks, and he would be the primary beneficiary if Chandler sits this one out.
Feb 28 - 12:01 PM

Tyson Chandler (hip contusion) was a full participant during Friday's practice, Rick Carlisle said he'll be "a probable/questionable" for Saturday's game vs. the Nets.

Chandler said that he is hopeful to play on Saturday, and his return to practice is a step in the right direction. If Chandler is able to go, Bernard James will return to a bench role devoid of any fantasy value in standard leagues. Stay tuned.
Feb 27 - 1:40 PM

Tyson Chandler (hip contusion) said that he is hopeful to be able to suit up for Saturday's game vs. the Nets.

Chandler was unable to go on Wednesday, which resulted in Bernard James logging a season-high 27 minutes while putting up seven points, 11 rebounds and two blocks with the starting unit. If Chandler is again unable to go on Saturday, James would likely get another opportunity to start, and he'd make for a decent plug-and-play option with a favorable matchup against the Nets. Stay tuned.
Feb 26 - 3:49 PM

Tyson Chandler will not play vs. the Hawks on Wednesday due to a left hip contusion.

Chandler hurt himself while drawing a charge on Tuesday and he's also battling a sore left ankle. The diagnosis could be worse and we're considering Chandler day-to-day with his hip bruise, but it helps that Dallas doesn't play again until Saturday. Amare Stoudemire is resting on Wednesday, guys like Greg Smith, Bernard James and Charlie Villanueva will have to pick up the slack in the frontcourt. Smith is the best fantasy option of the bunch with Tyson out, but that's not saying much.
