Tyson Chandler (concussion protocol) is listed as out for Wednesday against the Clippers.

This is likely just off the game notes, so it's not a rock-solid "out" like most cases. Still, it would be a major surprise to see Chandler play. Jon Leuer will likely get the start and he should be looking at around 28 minutes like Monday.
Apr 13 - 4:54 PM

Tyson Chandler (concussion protocol) is still uncertain for Wednesday against the Clippers.

This is likely a no news is bad news scenario for Chandler. That would mean Jon Leuer gets the start in the season finale while Alex Len gets all of his minutes at center. This would also help a hot Mirza Teletovic.
Apr 13 - 2:25 PM

Tyson Chandler (concussion protocol) is out for Monday's game against the Kings.

He suffered some sort of injury on Monday night and apparently this is it. The Suns have already fallen to fourth in the lottery and will likely stay there unless the Nets somehow get a win. With Chandler out, Jon Leuer figures to start and get the most run. Chandler should be dropped in fantasy leagues.
Apr 11 - 4:32 PM

Tyson Chandler scored 13 points with five rebounds, one assist and three blocks in 21 minutes against the Pelicans on Saturday.

He may have tweaked his back or shoulder, but there hasn't been any news on that front just yet. For now, expect Chandler to play at home against a DeMarcus Cousins-less Kings team on Monday.
Apr 9 - 9:43 PM

Tyson Chandler scored 21 points with 10 rebounds, one assist, two steals and one turnover against the Rockets on Thursday.

He killed the Rockets on the glass and protected the paint like it was 2011-12 when he won Defensive Player of the Year. The Suns don't seem to care about tanking, so Chandler might be worth owning in standard leagues the rest of the way.
Apr 7 - 10:52 PM

Tyson Chandler had 10 points, 13 rebounds, a steal and a block in Tuesday's loss to the Hawks.

Chandler is cooking, despite being old and playing for a team with nothing going for them, racking up strong double-doubles in four straight games. Keep rolling him out there as long as he's starting for the Suns.
Apr 5 - 11:45 PM

Tyson Chandler's strong play continued on Sunday with 21 points, 18 rebounds and one steal in a losing effort vs. the Jazz.

Chandler made 10-of-12 shots and snared five of his boards on the offensive end, fueling his opportunistic scoring. He didn't have any assists or blocks, but he also committed just one turnover and this gives him three consecutive double-doubles. Jon Leuer (ankle) might chip into his value once healthy, but Chandler can be plugged into active lineups while he's playing well in a featured role.
Apr 3 - 9:10 PM

Tyson Chandler scored 11 points with 15 rebounds, two assists and one block in 39 minutes against the Wizards on Friday.

Alex Len was terrible and Jon Leuer (ankle) did not play tonight, so it was all on Chandler to hold it down in the paint. He's been banged up for a while, so it's tough to own him due to the probability of him getting hurt.
Apr 2 - 1:36 AM

Tyson Chandler bounced back on Wednesday with 13 points, 13 rebounds, three assists and two blocks in a loss vs. the Bucks.

Chandler played 34 minutes and had his way in the paint, a welcome sight after Monday's two-point dud. His recent back injury is behind him and he's worth a look if you need a cheap source of boards, blocks and FG percentage.
Mar 30 - 11:21 PM

Tyson Chandler is listed as a probable starter for Wednesday against the Bucks.

An earlier report from the Bucks side had Chandler on the injury report, but he looks good to go on the Suns side of things. For now, Chandler looks like he'll be in the starting lineup.
Mar 30 - 5:06 PM

Tyson Chandler returned on Monday with two points, three rebounds and four assists against the Wolves.

He didn't look bad, but the Suns aren't going to play the aging Chandler big minutes with back concerns. He's not really worth owning in most leagues right now.
Mar 28 - 11:40 PM

Tyson Chandler (back) will start on Monday vs. the Wolves and Jon Leuer (illness) will come off the bench.

The Suns will go with a starting frontcourt of Chandler and Alex Len. This also means that John Jenkins will be moved to a bench role. Chandler was averaging 8.7 points, 8.4 boards and 0.6 blocks in March before going down with the injury, so he's a low-end big at best.
Mar 28 - 7:00 PM

Updating a previous item, Tyson Chandler (back) and Jon Leuer (illness) are expected to play on Monday vs. Minnesota.

It remains unclear how each will be utilized, but at least Earl Watson will have some options against Karl-Anthony Towns and Gorgui Dieng. If Chandler is back with the first five, Alex Len will shift to power forward with Leuer off the bench. If Len starts at center, Leuer could get the nod at PF with Chandler off the bench. We'll have an update before tipoff.
Mar 28 - 1:42 PM

The availability of Tyson Chandler (back) and Jon Leuer (illness) has yet to be determined for Monday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

We haven't gotten any updates on Chandler's back condition since he went to the sidelines, while Leuer missed Saturday's game vs. Boston due to the illness. If both guys are out again vs. Gorgui Dieng and Karl-Anthony Towns, Minnesota's twin towers would eat while the Suns would have to get awfully creative with their lineups, featuring a lot of Alex Len and Mirza Teletovic. Stay tuned.
