Wilson Chandler was outstanding against the Rockets during a 115-111 overtime loss on Wednesday with 23 points, six rebounds, one steal, one block and five 3-pointers.
The Scoop:He keeps putting up big lines and coach Brian Shaw will continue to play him huge minutes. Over his last five, Chandler has averaged 16.2 points, 6.4 boards, 1.0 steals and 2.6 triples. His fantasy owners can consider him a must-start guy, but a trade would really hurt his fantasy value.
The Scoop:Chandler is having a solid season in Denver with averages of 14.5 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.3 three-pointers, 0.8 steals, and 0.4 blocks per game. Injuries will always be a concern with Wilson, but as long as he's healthy, he'll be worth owning for his across-the-board production. However, there have been a few trade rumors involving Chandler, and a move to another team would likely hurt his value. This may be a sell-high moment.
The Scoop:This is excellent news as the illness wasn't serious enough to make him miss any action. Chandler has run away with the starting small forward spot in Denver and has become a must-start option in all leagues. There are some rumors floating around about a trade to Oklahoma City, but a deal at this point looks unlikely and owners shouldn't be too concerned. Deploy him with confidence Saturday.
