  • Wilson Chandler: Bound for China

    Chandler is in the process of finalizing a contract with the Zhejiang Lions of the Chinese Basketball Association, Emiliano Carchia of Sportando.com reports.

    Assuming Chandler is able to come to terms on a deal, he'll be rejoining the same CBA team with whom he played nine years earlier during the NBA's lockout-shortened 2011-12 season. Chandler spent the past season with the Nets, averaging 5.9 points, 4.1 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.1 three-pointers in 21.0 minutes per game over 35 appearances before opting to sit out the season restart at the NBA bubble in Orlando. Since he was set to become a free agent during the offseason, Chandler is free to begin negotiating with foreign teams. He could revisit a return to the NBA in the second half of the 2020-21 campaign once the CBA season concludes.

  • Nets' Wilson Chandler: Sitting out season restart

    Chandler informed the Nets on Sunday that he won't be participating in the resumption of the 2019-20 season in Orlando, Malika Andrews of ESPN.com reports.

    Chandler was in the starting lineup for the final three games before the suspension of the season in March, but he won't be joining the team in Orlando. Taurean Prince is likely to reclaim his spot in Brooklyn's starting five.

  • Nets' Wilson Chandler: Gets another start

    Chandler will draw a second straight start at power forward Sunday against the Bulls.

    Chandler took Taurean Prince's spot in the starting five in the Nets' last game Friday against the Spurs, and interim coach Jacque Vaughn won't deviate from that arrangement in the team's first contest of the post-Kenny Atkinson era. Despite drawing the starting nod in the 139-120 win over San Antonio, Chandler only played 18 minutes, which didn't vary much from what he had received in his first 32 outings of the season off the bench (20.8 per game). Chandler's fantasy value remains restricted to deeper leagues at this time.

  • Nets' Wilson Chandler: Off injury report for Friday

    Chandler (personal) has been removed from the injury report ahead of Friday's game against the Hawks, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

    Chandler missed Wednesday's loss to the Wizards due to personal reasons, but he'll be back in the fold Friday. In nine February appearances, he's averaging 5.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 22.7 minutes.

  • Nets' Wilson Chandler: Won't play Wednesday

    Chandler (personal) will not play Wednesday against the Wizards, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

    Chandler will miss at least one game as he tends to an undisclosed personal matter. In his absence, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot is a candidate to benefit from increased run. Friday's game in Atlanta will represent Chandler's next chance to take the court.

  • Nets' Wilson Chandler: Tabbed questionable Wednesday

    Chandler is listed as questionable for Wednesday's contest against Washington due to personal reasons, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

    It's currently unclear as to what personal matter Chandler is tending to at the moment. The veteran forward most recently logged 23 minutes and posted five points and four rebounds in the Nets' loss against the Magic on Monday. Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot will presumably see increased run if Chandler is sidelined Wednesday.

  • Nets' Wilson Chandler: Logs 27 minutes versus Toronto

    Chandler chipped in eight points (3-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt), six rebounds and one assist in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 101-91 win over the Raptors.

    Chandler has seen at least 23 minutes in three of his last four appearances. However, he continues to provide modest statistical production, having been held to single digits in scoring for 10 straight games, and is only worth targeting in deeper leagues.

  • Nets' Wilson Chandler: Scores 15 in loss

    Chandler had 15 points (5-7 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 22 minutes during Thursday's loss to the Lakers.

    Chandler has been up and down in the Nets' rotation recently, but provided some much-needed scoring in this contest - particularly in the first half, when he was the second-highest scorer on the team, contributing 12 points in 11 minutes off the bench. Regardless, the 32-year old doesn't produce much in most categories besides points and free-throw percentage (which is at a career-high 90.9 percent), and is off the fantasy radar in all but the very deep leagues.

  • Nets' Wilson Chandler: Available to play Thursday

    Chandler (hamstring) is available to play in Thursday's matchup against the Lakers.

    The veteran was a scratch in Monday's contest with a sore left hamstring, but his name didn't appear on an updated injury report ahead of Thursday's slate which deems Chandler available to play versus the Lakers. Over 14 appearances with the Nets this season, Chandler is averaging 6.4 points across 20.1 minutes per outing.

  • Nets' Wilson Chandler: Out with hamstring tightness

    Chandler will not play Monday against the Sixers due to a sore left hamstring.

    Chandler tweaked the hamstring Monday against the Bucks, and it'll cost him at least one game. In his absence, Taurean Prince, Dzanan Musa and Rodions Kurucs could all pick up increased minutes.

  • Nets' Wilson Chandler: Scores 10 in 16 minutes

    Chandler chipped in 10 points (3-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and one assist in 16 minutes during Wednesday's 117-106 loss to the 76ers.

    Chandler rejoined the rotation following a one-game absence with a hamstring injury and put forth a decent line considering his limited playing time. He has scored in double figures in three of his last seven appearances but remains best reserved for use in deeper leagues.
