Tyson Chandler scored four points with 10 rebounds, one assist and no turnovers in 21 minutes against the Rockets on Thursday.
Alex Len saw bigger minutes tonight and that might happen more often. The front office has said they want to develop their younger guys and they might want to save some tread on Chandler's tires, so expect his minutes to be in the low 20s. Feb 4 - 11:52 PM

Tyson Chandler started on Tuesday, but played just 18 minutes, picked up five fouls and failed to score against the Raptors.

He did have five rebounds and a block, but that's little consolation to his owners. Chandler has quieted down after a mini-explosion a couple weeks ago, averaging just 5.0 points, 8.4 rebounds and 0.8 blocks over his last five games.

Tyson Chandler isn't drawing much interest on the trade market.

While the 33-year-old could help a playoff contender, he still has three years and $39 million left on his contract after this season. Chandler's mediocre play this season isn't helping things either, but the Suns only have to find one trade partner in order to make a deal that would give Alex Len's fantasy value a boost.

Tyson Chandler said he's "not jumping ship" despite Phoenix's disappointing season.

If the organization decides to move me or something like that, then clearly that’s something that’s out of my control," Chandler said. "But I came here and I came here for a reason. I thought it was a young, promising team, and I wanted to be a part of helping turn this around and go to the next level. I still feel like I’m capable of doing that, and I feel like this organization is capable of doing that. It’s just clearly some things have to change."

Tyson Chandler double-doubled vs. his former team on Sunday, leaving Dallas with 12 points, 13 rebounds (five offensive), two assists, one steal and one block in 33 minutes.

The Suns have now lost 14 consecutive road games and their overall record of 14-35 leaves them tied with the Wolves for the second-worst record in the West. Chandler's play is fluctuating on a nightly basis and it's hard to see him playing big minutes as the Suns' lost season drifts to a conclusion, so his owners shouldn't anticipate a strong finish to the 2015-16 season.
Jan 31 - 10:10 PM

Tyson Chandler scored two points with 12 rebounds, one assist and no turnovers in 22 minutes against the Knicks on Friday.

He probably would've played more, but the Suns were smoked tonight. Chandler's owners will want to monitor his status leading up to back-to-back sets, but he's trending up after a rough start to his season. He's still a low-end own.
Jan 29 - 9:50 PM

Tyson Chandler isn't worried about the losses piling up for the Suns and is just focusing on helping his younger teammates.

"I’m focusing on a lot of little things right now," Chandler said. "I came here to help these guys so I’m going to continue to do that, win or lose. Try to get strong and prepare myself for when things are good." Chandler has played well over his last five with averages of 7.0 points, 14.6 boards, 2.6 assists and 1.2 blocks, but he could lose minutes down the stretch as the Suns look to open up more minutes for their younger players.
Jan 29 - 10:40 AM

Tyson Chandler played just 19 minutes and had five points, five rebounds and a block in Tuesday's loss to the Sixers.

Chandler came in hot, playing at least 27 minutes in each of his previous three games, and collecting 61 rebounds in them. But with the Sixers playing without center Jahlil Okafor (illness) and Alex Len taking care of business against Nerlens Noel, there just wasn't much of a need for big minutes from Chandler. Hopefully he bounces back in the next one.
Jan 26 - 9:40 PM

Tyson Chandler matched a franchise-high 27 boards against the Hawks on Saturday, adding 13 points, five assists, two blocks and one steal in 44 minutes.

He played 22 minutes in each half tonight and matched his season-high 10 attempts from the field. Chandler played a whopping 36 minutes on Thursday, so maybe he's back to playing big minutes. He's still only likely to be in the 27-33 minutes range unless the Suns want to run him into the ground. If you need boards, give him a look with two strong games in a row while he's healthy.
Jan 24 - 12:23 AM

Tyson Chandler grabbed a season-high 20 rebounds against the Spurs on Thursday, adding eight points, four rebounds and one block in 36 minutes.

The Suns played him big minutes out of desperation tonight. Chandler has played 24 minutes or more in each of his last four games, so he might be worth a look if you need help with boards. Just remember his minutes will likely drop once the Suns get some bodies back.
Jan 22 - 1:47 AM

Tyson Chandler scored eight points on 3-of-4 shooting Sunday, to go with eight rebounds and one turnover in 24 minutes.

Chandler is averaging a meager 21.9 minutes per game this season (his lowest minutes allotment since his rookie year), and with averages of just 5.3 points, 7.2 boards and 0.6 swats per game on the year, he’s not worth owning in most leagues.
Jan 17 - 6:10 PM

Tyson Chandler scored six points with nine rebounds, two assists and one turnover in 24 minutes against the Celtics on Friday.

His legs are gone and even Marcus Smart got a contested rebound over Chandler tonight. The Suns have him on their books for three more season after this one, so that doesn't look promising. Anyway, he's not worth owning in most leagues.
Jan 15 - 10:42 PM

Tyson Chandler had just one point, six rebounds, three assists, a steal and no blocks in just 17 minutes of Tuesday's loss to Indy.

Even with Alex Len sidelined for most of the week, Chandler isn't looking much like the player we remember from the past. Maybe he'll suddenly wake up one day and put it all together, but for now, he doesn't even look like a player worth holding.
Jan 12 - 10:04 PM

Tyson Chandler, who was ejected from Saturday's game, finished a brutal loss vs. the Lakers with two points on 1-of-6 shooting, five rebounds and one turnover in 20 minutes.

The Suns have now lost nine straight games, leaving Chandler as an elder statesman on a team that's rapidly approaching 'tank' territory. He was awful tonight, missing four shots within five feet of the hoop and getting burned on some lazy defensive rotations, so coach Jeff Hornacek gave him an early hook. He remains a liability in 12-team leagues, but deserves to at least be watched as a potential mid-season pickup.
Jan 4 - 12:44 AM

Tyson Chandler was ejected for two technical fouls in the third quarter during Saturday's game against the Kings.

He clapped in front of a ref and it led to his ejection for his second tech. Chandler won't be suspended for this, so Alex Len and Jon Leuer will just step up for today. He finished with six points, one rebound, one steal and three turnovers in 12 minutes. Chandler isn't a great asset in standard leagues right now.
