Tyson Chandler played 32 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday with 10 points with 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 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 but Chandler doesn't qualify. He's probably worth owning in most leagues right now. Dec 8 - 12:41 AM

Tyson Chandler had just two points, nine rebounds and zero blocks in Saturday's blowout loss to the Warriors.

We thought this might be a decent matchup for TyChan as he can run the floor and he played 25 minutes, but only attempted one shot on the evening. He's not really doing much for the Suns, other than stunting the growth of Alex Len (17 minutes tonight), but he is averaging 6.0 points, 10.0 rebounds, 1.0 steals and .8 blocks over his last four games. He's fine if you're only looking for boards and a solid filed goal percentage, but that's about it.
Dec 4 - 1:36 AM

Tyson Chandler posted a 10-point, 15-board double-double in 38 minutes of action on Sunday.

He went 5-of-6 from the field and also managed to swat away two shots, and it looks like he's going to be the starting center in Phoenix moving forward. Chandler rarely contributes much on the defensive end, so he's basically just a rebounding specialist who can boost your field goal percentage.

Tyson Chandler will replace Alex Len in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Nuggets.

Len's value is going to take a pretty significant hit with the demotion to the second-unit, so he's now off the radar as a DFS option. Eric Bledsoe, Devin Booker, P.J. Tucker and Marquese Chriss will join Chandler in the starting five for today's game, and this will be the first time we've seen this group together this season.

Tyson Chandler returned on Friday with six points, seven rebounds and one turnover in 11 minutes against the Wolves.

After the game, coach Earl Watson talked about Chandler looking good and said he makes an impact every time he steps on the floor. The Suns continue to hint about playing their young guys, so Chandler's minutes may continue to stay closer to 20. Most owners can take a wait-and-see approach unless they need boards badly.

Tyson Chandler will come off the bench on Friday vs. the Wolves.

Alex Len is going to draw the start, but coach Earl Watson said he wants to give Chandler minutes. Assuming he's still ahead of Alan Williams, Chandler is worth a look if you're specifically targeting rebounds.
Nov 25 - 8:39 PM

Suns coach Earl Watson wants to play Tyson Chandler on Friday vs. the Wolves.

He's back with the team and is available to play, but it's still not clear if he will start over Alex Len. We'll have an update shortly, but Chandler is just a rebounding specialist in standard leagues.
Nov 25 - 7:33 PM

Tyson Chandler is available to play against the Wolves on Friday.

Whether he starts or not will depend on his pre-game workout. Chandler has played just one game since Nov. 7, so there should be some rust for the 34-year-old big man. Alex Len should still get minutes in the upper 20s tonight, but Alan Williams likely stays out of the rotation.
Nov 25 - 4:59 PM

Tyson Chandler (personal) will return to the team on Friday.

It would appear he is fully expected to play after a bereavement week for his mother's funeral. The Suns do want to take a look at their younger players, so Chandler's minutes are likely going to be on the low 20s. Alex Len has played very well, so Len's owners should hold tight for now. Chandler is only a rebounding specialist for now.
Nov 24 - 6:49 PM

Tyson Chandler (personal) will not play vs. the Magic on Wednesday.

He's still away from the team, but we'd be surprised if he wasn't available for Friday's home game vs. the Wolves. With Chandler out, Alex Len will continue to start, but he will likely split minutes with Alan Williams.
Nov 22 - 9:35 PM

Tyson Chandler (personal) will not play Monday vs. the Wizards.

Chandler is still away from the team, and he may miss Wednesday's away game in Orlando as well. Alex Len and Alan Williams will continue to hold down the fort in Chandler's absence,
Nov 21 - 2:38 PM

Tyson Chandler (personal reasons) is not with the team and will not play Saturday vs. the Sixers.

Chandler attended his mother's funeral last night. Alex Len started in place of Chandler on Friday and scored 10 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in 22 minutes.
Nov 19 - 12:59 PM

Tyson Chandler (personal) will attend his mother's funeral and will not play on Friday against the Pacers.

It'll be his fourth game out of the lineup and it's possible he missed Saturday's game against the 76ers. Chandler did play on Wednesday, but it'll be Alex Len back in the starting lineup.
Nov 18 - 5:13 PM

Tyson Chandler (personal) will not play Friday vs. the Pacers.

Chandler had missed four games last week due to his mother's death, before returning to the Suns and playing 20 minutes on Wednesday. No word whether or not this is related to that unfortunate circumstance, but he is currently not with the team. Alex Len will likely get the start on Friday, with Marquese Chriss and P.J. Tucker also seeing increased minutes.

Nov 18 - 1:35 PM

Tyson Chandler returned from a personal absence on Wednesday with five points, five rebounds and a pair of blocks in 21 minutes.

Chandler wound up missing four games while grieving the loss of his mother. He slid right back into his usual starting job and coach Earl Watson hasn't suggested he'll alter his lineup, so it looks like Chandler and Alex Len will continue to split minutes evenly in an entrenched position battle. Tyson is worth a look if you need a rebound and FG percentage specialist.
