Her portrait is tattooed on his neck, but the 3D version is always better. He had to get Jaya with him in Denver. This offseason he did just that. Now? "I can focus on everything," said Chandler, a single dad. "I don't have to call every day and make sure she's all right and be stressing about that." And a stress-free existence off the court may lead to a more comfortable existence on it. Both he and the Nuggets are banking on it. Denver Post

"Wilson, to me, still hasn't hit his ceiling yet," Shaw said. "I've been very, very impressed with, from the work I've seen him do in the summer being here. I didn't realize he could shoot the ball as well as he can shoot the ball. I didn't realize he was as big as he is. And I think he can be real versatile for us." Denver Post

The two now will sit in adjacent lockers. It promises to be a spirited setup as the boisterous Robinson interacts with the calm, quiet Chandler. “He laughs and giggles, but other than that, Wilson’s a quiet guy,” Robinson said. “I’m the total opposite. It’s going to work. Opposites attract.” NBA.com

One of Nate Robinson’s goals this season is to keep Wilson Chandler smiling. He’s off to a good start. Chandler was all smiles when he heard that Robinson was signing with the Nuggets last month. The two became good friends while playing for the New York Knicks from 2007-10. “He’s one of the most genuine guys in the NBA,” Chandler said. “A lot of the stuff in the NBA is about perception. He’s just being himself all the time. That’s what makes him one of the most genuine people.” NBA.com

Chandler played 33 minutes Sunday off the bench, though he started the second half in place of injured Kenneth Faried. Chandler finished with 11 points, 3-of-13 shooting and four rebounds. Denver's bench, which got back the services of Chandler and Andre Miller, contributed 48 points to the Nuggets' 118-109 victory. The mild-mannered Chandler didn't necessarily agree with the foul trouble reasoning, but said he was fine with Karl's decision. "He told me before the game," Chandler said. "I'm cool with it. No problem. I liked starting, but whatever is better for the team." Denver Post

Limited to four games this season while recovering from hip surgery, Chandler is set to return to the court Sunday night when the Denver Nuggets face the Golden State Warriors at Pepsi Center. Chandler, a versatile wing player, came back to Denver last spring after playing in China but appeared in eight games before being sidelined by pain in his left hip. He had surgery to repair a labral tear on April 30 and spent the offseason regaining his strength and mobility. After returning in time for Denver’s season-opener, Chandler played in only four games before realizing that his hip needed more time to heal. “It’s tough because you want to do a lot of things your mind tells you to do but your body can’t,” he said after a light workout Saturday. “You just want to go out and play good for the team, for yourself, for the fans. “People are asking you all the time, ‘What’s wrong? Why aren’t you playing?’ People on the outside really don’t know what’s going on, so people kind of criticize. That’s part of the game.” NBA.com
