  • Tyson Chandler - C - Los Angeles Lakers

    Tyson Chandler (stiff neck) will play on Thursday against the Rockets.

    Chandler was initially questionable but is ready to go. He might not play much considering the matchup, but he should work as the Lakers' backup center either way.

    Tyson Chandler (stiff neck) is questionable for Thursday's matchup with the Rockets.

    Chandler might not have a big role against Houston and isn't a fantasy factor either way, so there isn't much to track here. If he can't go it should lead to more minutes for JaVale McGee.

    Tyson Chandler (big toe sprain) will not play on Tuesday night in Atlanta.

    With Chandler out it's going to mean lots of JaVale McGee with Mike Muscala and Moe Wagner off the bench. Muscala is the preferred option but this is still only a deep-league conversation.

  • Tyson Chandler - C - Los Angeles Lakers

    Tyson Chandler didn't participate in this morning’s shootaround due to a big toe sprain and is questionable to face the Hawks on Tuesday.

    Javale McGee is already the preferred fantasy option but he should be extra busy tonight if Chandler is unable to give it a go. Mike Muscala is also questionable and the Lakers might have to play some small-ball against a young and athletic Hawks team.

    Tyson Chandler (rest) will not play on Saturday against the Warriors.

    JaVale McGee and Ivica Zubac should see extra run in this game with both LeBron James and Chandler resting. McGee is the preferred fantasy option, but does not mesh as well with the younger players compared to LeBron.

    Tyson Chandler will get the night off on Sunday against the Suns as Luke Walton thinks he needs some rest.

    So much for that revenge game… Look out for a big game from JaVale McGee with Chandler out tonight. The Suns are missing their starting center with Deandre Ayton out tonight.

  • Tyson Chandler - C - Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers will once again start Tyson Chandler and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope on Thursday.

    It means JaVale McGee and Josh Hart will come off the bench, as they did on Tuesday. Despite it all, McGee remains the best fantasy option here. His per-minute blocks warrant a hold in all formats and he bought himself plenty of goodwill with a great start to the year, while Chandler's paper-thin stat set only leaves him with specialist appeal as a deep-league rebounder. The two wings are basically a toss-up, with Hart more likely to add assists and rebounds and KCP liable to knock down more threes. Whoever gets more minutes is the preferred play, so we're leaning towards Caldwell-Pope, but you could talk yourself into or out of either pretty easily depending on what you need.

    Shams Charania of The Athletic is reporting Lakers coach Luke Walton will likely start Tyson Chandler ahead of JaVale McGee going forward.

    The Lakers have been hinting at a lineup change, particularly since they've dropped seven out of their last 10 games. Chandler brings a veteran presence and attitude the young Lakers need in the middle. Perhaps the clock has struck midnight on McGee's amazing start to the season.

  • JaVale McGee - C - Los Angeles Lakers

    JaVale McGee (pneumonia) has been ruled out of Friday’s game vs. the Clippers.

    Ivica Zubac will likely get another start with Tyson Chandler backing him up off the bench. This will be McGee’s seventh consecutive missed game but his questionable tag prior to the game means he’s getting closer.

  • JaVale McGee - C - Los Angeles Lakers

    JaVale McGee (illness) is listed as questionable for Friday’s game vs. the Clippers.

    McGee has already missed six games in almost two weeks as he deals with the lingering effects of pneumonia. If he has to miss another one, it’ll be Ivica Zubac and Tyson Chandler splitting the center minutes, with Zubac the player with more upside you want to use.

  • Tyson Chandler - C - Los Angeles Lakers

    Tyson Chandler (back) returned from a one-game absence on Tuesday and went scoreless while notching four rebounds and two steals in 16 minutes.

    Chandler didn't put any sort of dent into Ivica Zubac, but it's tough to gauge this sudden three-man battle for playing time until JaVale McGee gets back on the floor. Any way you slice it, Chandler should only be owned in the deepest of leagues for his rebounding prowess.

    Tyson Chandler (back) is available to play in Tuesday's matchup with the Warriors.

    Chandler is returning from a one-game absence tonight but we wouldn't expect to see much of him given the matchup. He also is likely to come off the bench behind a resurgent Ivica Zubac, so he's pretty hands off for fantasy purposes.

    Tyson Chandler (back) is questionable to play on Tuesday.

    Chandler was forced to sit out on Sunday after being extremely limited on Friday because of an illness, and Ivica Zubac has dominated the frontcourt with the Lakers thin up front. It'll be interesting to see how things shake out when Chandler is at full health again, as Zubac will be tough to bench outright after two great games. Either way, Chandler will see time thanks to his skillset, but isn't anything more than a deep-league rebounding specialist.

    Tyson Chandler has been ruled out for Sunday night with back spasms.

    With JaVale McGee also out, Ivica Zubac gets a shot at the start. He might be worth a look in DFS and Moe Wagner will also pickup a few minutes.
