  • Rockets' Tyson Chandler: Out for Game 5

    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.

  • Rockets' Tyson Chandler: Not seeing action

    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.

  • Rockets' Tyson Chandler: Healthy scratch versus Nuggets

    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.

  • Rockets' Tyson Chandler: Only four minutes Saturday

    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.

  • Rockets' Tyson Chandler: Not on injury report

    Chandler (illness) wasn't listed on Sunday's injury report.

    It seems as if Chandler's fully recovered from the illness that's kept him out of the past six games. Considering he's averaging just 9.1 minutes per game this season, so his return won't impact the Rockets' rotation too much.

  • Rockets' Tyson Chandler: Listed as questionable

    Chandler (illness) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Pistons.

    Chandler missed Friday's game due to illness and is in danger of missing a second straight. His status will likely depend on how he is feeling closer to tip-off. Gary Clark could again see some additional minutes off the bench if he is ultimately unable to go.
