Chandler is starting Sunday against Golden State. With both Danilo Gallinari (ankle) and JaMychal Green (personal) on the shelf, Chandler will receive an opportunity to enter the starting lineup. He'll be asked to provide the Clippers with key minutes amidst a heated battle for the postseason.
Chandler chipped in 15 points (5-7 FG, 5-6 3Pt), two rebounds, and one assist in 17 minutes during Thursday's 128-118 loss to the Bucks. Chandler matched his season high in scoring while amassing a season high in made threes. This is the first time since Jan. 17 that Chandler has reached double figures in scoring, and he hasn't yet seen 20 minutes through his first nine appearances with the Clippers. As a result, he's not that appealing for most formats.
Chandler (quadriceps) logged nine minutes off the bench in Monday's 140-115 win over the Celtics, finishing with two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist. Chandler had previously been available off the bench in Friday's 118-110 win over the Thunder, but didn't crack the rotation due to the game being competitive. A more lopsided affair Monday allowed Chandler to make his team debut in garbage time, but the veteran forward didn't do much during his court time to push for an expanded role off the bench. Expect coach Doc Rivers to continue relying on Ivica Zubac, Danilo Gallinari, Montrezl Harrell and JaMychal Green as the team's core big men most nights.

He last played when he was still on the 76ers, so it remains to be seen what type of role he will have with his new squad. However, he will presumably be eased back into the swing of things.
Chandler (quad) will take part in Wednesday's practice, Tomer Azarly of Clutch Points reports. Chandler has missed the last 12 games with a strained quad muscle, but he's nearing a return and is hoping to get back on the floor for Friday's matchup with OKC. Coach Doc Rivers said he's unsure how much Chandler will be able to do Wednesday, but either way his return to the practice floor is a major step in the right direction.
