Tyson Chandler is set to become a free agent this summer, but he is hoping that the Mavericks decide to bring him back.
Chandler was fantastic this season and posted averages of 10.3 points, 11.5 boards, 1.1 assists and 1.2 blocks per game, so he will surely command a ton of interest on the open market. The Mavericks and DeAndre Jordan reportedly have a mutual interest, so it's certainly possible that Chandler could be in a new uniform for the 2015-16 season. Apr 29 - 10:18 AM

Tyson Chandler had a quiet game on Tuesday with 11 points, six rebounds and zero assists, steals or blocks in 36 minutes of action.

Despite tonight's disappointing yield, Chandler stepped up in the playoffs with averages of 10.2 points on 65.5 percent shooting, 10.8 rebounds and 1.2 blocks. He led all players with a gaudy offensive rebound rate of 19.5 percent despite battling Dwight Howard every night, and should garner plenty of interest as an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Tyson Chandler said he didn't throw a punch in Sunday's Game 4 win over the Rockets.

Despite rumors that he might face a suspension for what some thought was a punch thrown at Dwight Howard, Chandler said it was just physical play. "That is the first time I heard that," Chandler said. "I didn’t throw any punches. I wouldn’t throw a punch at Dwight. We are playing basketball. I don’t know that it’s chippy. We are both playing aggressive." With Game 5 on Tuesday night, it's unlikely that Chandler will face a suspension if he hasn't heard from the league office yet, so it's sounding extremely likely he'll be available for another showdown against Howard.
Apr 28 - 1:31 PM

Tyson Chandler was on a mission during Sunday's win vs. the Rockets, piling up 10 points on 4-of-4 shooting, 14 rebounds, one assist and two blocks.

He made only 2-of-6 free throws and Dallas as a team was an abysmal 9-of-21 at the line, but they still racked up 121 points to make it a 3-1 series vs. the heavily-favored Rockets. Chandler's double-digit scoring is a bonus for the Mavs, who could live with zero points as long as the former Defensive Player of the Year stays active on the glass -- Dallas won tonight's battle of the boards 52-38.
Apr 27 - 12:20 AM

Tyson Chandler double-doubled against the Rockets on Saturday with 11 points, 18 boards, two steals and one block in 31 minutes.

The Mavs went small with four wings next to Chandler and they would have been torched on both ends without him. Chandler had himself a fantastic April, averaging 13.1 points, 12.7 boards, 1.0 blocks and 0.3 steals on 75.6 percent from the field. It's fair to expect a double-double in each game during this series.
Apr 19 - 12:26 AM

Tyson Chandler returned from a night of rest and led the Mavericks with 22 points, 15 rebounds, a steal and a block as Dallas beat the Blazers 114-98.

The Mavs are the No. 7 seed and will face the No. 2 Rockets in Round 1 of the playoffs. Dirk Nowitzki (16) and Monta Ellis (15) also returned from a rest, while Chandler Parson missed another game with his knee injury.
Apr 16 - 12:02 AM

Tyson Chandler (rest) will not play on Monday vs. Utah.

This was expected and is now official. Without Chandler, expect Amare Stoudemire, Charlie Villanueva, Bernard James and Greg Smith to all be in the mix, with James or Smith as the most likely candidate to start.
Apr 13 - 11:04 AM

Tyson Chandler is expected to sit out Monday's road game in Utah as a precaution.

Chandler dominated the Lakers on Sunday with 20 points on 9-of-10 shooting, nine rebounds and two blocks, but he won't even travel with the Mavericks. Dirk Nowitzki is also expected to rest as a precaution, which leaves the frontcourt wide open for Amare Stoudemire, Charlie Villanueva, Bernard James, Dwight Powell and Greg Smith.
Apr 13 - 12:57 AM

Tyson Chandler racked up 12 points, 23 rebounds and two blocks in Wednesday's win over the Suns.

They Mavs knocked the Suns out of the playoffs with the win and Chandler abused former teammate, Brandan Wright. The Mavs sound like they may rest some starters over the final week, so Chandler's owners should watch the news feed to make sure he's playing from night to night.
Apr 9 - 12:43 AM

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.
Mar 6 - 12:59 AM

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.
