Chandler will start Wednesday's game against the Raptors. Chandler, who missed Sunday's game against Memphis with a quad injury, will play and start Wednesday. The veteran wing has played in 13 games, averaging 5.9 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 23.0 minutes in what has shaped up to be an injury plagued year so far.
Chandler (quad) practiced Tuesday and will be available for Wednesday's game against the Raptors, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. Chandler was sidelined for Sunday's game against the Raptors after being kneed in the quad the game before, but it was never believed to be too serious. Expect Chandler to be a full go Wednesday in Toronto.
Chandler (quad) will not play Sunday against the Grizzlies, Rich Hofman of The Athletic reports. Chandler took a knee to the quad during Friday's game against Washington, and he'll be held out on what looks to be a precautionary basis. At this point it's unclear who will start in his place, but the Sixers will be left shorthanded on the wing. Hofman adds that the injury is not expected to cost Chandler extended time.
Chandler chipped in two points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), four rebounds, and three assists in 31 minutes during Monday's 119-114 win over the Suns. Chandler was supposedly going to be limited to 27 minutes, but he surpassed that to earn the fourth-most minutes on the team. Chandler fills a need, as the 76ers are lacking along the wing, particularly defensively, outside of Ben Simmons and Jimmy Butler. It's still unclear when Zhaire Smith (foot) will return, though it's likely later rather than sooner. As a result, unless another trade is on the horizon or the buyout market heats up, Chandler is a good bet to keep earning plenty of playing time going forward.
Chandler will start Monday's game against the Suns. After ceding his starting spot to Mike Muscala for Sunday's game, Chandler will resume his usual role Monday. The move corresponds with an increase in Chandler's minutes restriction to a maximum of 27 minutes. Chandler appears to be on the right track to playing without any limitations soon.
