Tyson Chandler is battling a stomach flu and will not play on Monday vs. the Jazz.
There have been a lot of players out with an illness around the league and Chandler is the latest victim. Let's just hope this doesn't spread to his teammates. Chandler will get a couple days off to rest for Thursday's game vs. Cleveland. Alex Len will start and looks like a nice short-term pickup. Alan Williams could back up Len unless the Suns go small with Marquese Chriss at the five. Jan 16 - 8:04 PM

Date:

Tyson Chandler scored eight points with 15 rebounds, one assist, one steal and two turnovers in 31 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday.

That's five straight games with at least 15 boards, which is the longest streak since at least 1983-84. Chandler is clearly going to get minutes because his coach loves him as the backbone of their defense, so he's worth owning in standard leagues.
Jan 14 - 10:12 PM

Tyson Chandler scored 14 points with 19 rebounds and one block in Thursday’s 108-133 loss to the Mavericks.

Chandler is now tied with Shawn Marion for the longest streak by a Sun with 15+ boards in four straight games. He also set the records for rebounds in a regular-season game in Mexico. He is averaging 18 rebounds in his last four games and has a double-double in consecutive games. Chandler be can considered a strong value DFS play so long as his price remains cheap.
Jan 13 - 12:51 AM

Tyson Chandler hit 4-of-7 shots for 10 points with 15 rebounds and one block in 31 minutes on Sunday against the Cavs.

He became the first player for the Suns with at least 15 rebounds in three consecutive games since Shawn Marion in 2005-06. Chandler recorded his seventh double-double of the season in tonight’s contest. He will be in a good spot to extend the streak on Thursday against the Mavericks, who are allowing 15.8 rebounds per game to opposing centers, which is the third most allowed by a team.
Jan 8 - 11:17 PM

The Blazers have been tracking Tyson Chandler as a potential trade target, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

He still has two more years on his deal at $26.5 million, so the Blazers probably wouldn't be giving up too much to make a deal go through. As most DFS players know, the Blazers have been awful with their interior defense and rebounding. If Chandler is traded, Alex Len would get a big boost.

Tyson Chandler scored three points with 18 rebounds, three assists and no turnovers against the Mavs on Thursday.

Chandler high screens were basically the staple of the offense to get Devin Booker and Eric Bledsoe open. He was also cheered in Dallas as a member of their championship team. Anyway, Chandler has played consistent minutes with 26.8 per game over his last five, averaging 7.0 points, 13.6 boards, 1.2 assists and 0.6 blocks. He's worth owning in standard leagues.
Jan 6 - 12:08 AM

Tyson Chandler had five points, 20 rebounds and two blocks in 32 minutes against the depleted Heat on Tuesday night.

Chandler had 21 rebounds on Dec. 11 and 23 rebounds on Dec. 13, and then hit single digits in five of his next seven games. And given that the Heat were without Hassan Whiteside, James Johnson and Justise Winslow tonight, it's not all that surprising that Chandler went off on the glass. He's averaging 7.2 points, 11.4 rebounds and 0.6 blocks over his last five games, and we're still hopeful that he'll take a backseat to Alex Len once the Suns realize their season is over. Len is quietly coming on and had nine points, eight boards and three blocks tonight.
Jan 4 - 12:11 AM

Tyson Chandler played 27 minutes against the Raptors on Thursday with seven points, 13 rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block.

He looked to either bang knees with Lucas Nogueira or step on his foot. Chandler did get some attention on the bench, but we never saw him go to the locker room. He was able to return and didn't look to be bothered by the injury. He's a hold in standard leagues for those needing boards.

Tyson Chandler, coming off a season-high 15 points with 12 rebounds on Friday, hit 3-of-6 shots for six points and eight rebounds on Monday.

He's scored six or fewer points in three of his last four games and really hasn't looked all that great since back-to-back 20-plus rebound games on Dec. 11 and 13. He's still averaging 8.6 points and 9.4 rebounds over his last five games, but has blocked a grand total of three shots in December. Three words: Free Alex Len!

Tyson Chandler scored a season-high 15 points with 12 rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 33 minutes against the 76ers on Friday.

He did have a minor injury with a collision under the basket, but Chandler looks to be OK. Coach Earl Watson has played him a lot lately, so he should have some value until the Suns fall out of the playoff race.
Sat, Dec 24, 2016 12:34:00 AM

Tyson Chandler scored 10 points with nine rebounds and one steal in 27 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

He saw his playing time take a slight hit with Alex Len returning. Coach Earl Watson always talks about how well Chandler protects the paint and rebounds, so he should flirt with 30 minutes for the next month or so. If you need boards right now, give him a look. His value after the break won't be great, though.
Sat, Dec 17, 2016 09:00:00 PM

Tyson Chandler hit 2-of-5 shots for four points, eight rebounds and two steals in Thursday night’s loss to the Spurs.

Chandler was playing well prior to this contest, grabbing double-digit boards in four straight games and recording three double-doubles during that stretch, including back-to-back 20-rebound games. He came back down to earth, but remains a good source of boards and FG percentage, while playing 28 minutes per game. He will get a day of rest before his next matchup against the Thunder.
Fri, Dec 16, 2016 12:10:00 AM

Tyson Chandler hit 5-of-8 shots for 13 points, a season-high 23 rebounds, a steal and a block in 41 minutes of Tuesday's 113-111 overtime win against the Knicks.

Chandler, who had 14 points and 21 rebounds on Sunday, is the only Suns player in history to record back-to-back 20-rebound games and has now done it twice. He's stunting the growth of Alex Len, but helped the Suns get the win tonight. He's hit double figures in rebounds in four straight games and is averaging 10.2 points, 13.8 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 0.6 blocks over his last five. He's worth picking up if you need rebounds and he's not already owned in your league.
Wed, Dec 14, 2016 12:29:00 AM

Tyson Chandler had a huge game on Sunday, scoring 14 points while hauling in a season-high 21 rebounds in a tough OT loss to the Pelicans.

Chandler made 5-of-6 field goals and 4-of-5 free throws in 36 minutes, and seven of his boards came on the offensive glass. He's offering minimal assists (0.7), steals (0.7) and blocks (0.5), but the 16-year veteran remains an excellent source of rebounds and FG percentage.
Mon, Dec 12, 2016 01:04:00 AM

Tyson Chandler played 32 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday with 10 points, 10 rebounds, two assists and two steals.

After his 11-minute return to the lineup on Nov. 25, the Suns are playing Chandler quite a bit. In those five, he's averaged 7.6 points, 9.6 boards, 1.2 assists, 0.6 blocks and 1.2 steals in 28.6 minutes. Chandler also is now up to 70.5 percent from the field on the year, which would lead the NBA if he qualified. He's probably worth owning in most leagues right now.
