Chandler is out for Saturday's Game 5 against the Lakers due to neck spasms. Chandler hasn't seen the floor for Houston since January, so his absence won't affect coach Mike D'Antoni's gameplan.
Chandler (coach's decision) didn't see the court Tuesday in the Rockets' 125-110 win over the Hornets. Chandler hasn't appeared in any of the Rockets' last nine games and looks bound to collect dust on the bench while he remains on the Houston roster. The organization's decision to trade Clint Capela (heel) to the Hawks following Tuesday's game signals that the Rockets are committed to running small-ball lineups featuring the 6-foot-6 P.J. Tucker as the team's starting center. The 37-year-old Chandler simply isn't a fit for that sort of style of play.
Chandler (coach's decision) didn't see the court during Wednesday's 121-105 win over the Nuggets. Chandler was a healthy scratch while fellow backup big man Isaiah Hartenstein played four minutes off the bench. Hartenstein has been receiving the nod over Chandler of late, and even prior to that Chandler was already avoidable for fantasy purposes.
Chandler will start Saturday against the Nets, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. With Clint Capela (heel) out, Chandler will draw the start. In his four previous starts this season, he's averaged 1.3 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.0 assist in 15.0 minutes.
Chandler managed just two rebounds in four minutes during Saturday's 139-125 victory over Phoenix. Chandler left the bench early but that was it for the veteran who ended with just four minutes on the floor. He is playing a very limited role for the Rockets and as long as Clint Capela is healthy, he is not worth targeting in any fantasy format.
