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

What has seemed like an eternity now has an end coming into focus. Nuggets forward Wilson Chandler, who has battled a severe hip injury for months, is plotting a Jan. 13 return. He revealed the plan after participating in a shootaround Friday morning at American Airlines Arena, hours before the Nuggets' game against the Mavericks. It was his first team-oriented drill in a while since being shut down in November. "I'm very excited," Chandler said. "The first time, I was excited to play, but I was kind of weak and just wasn't ready. This time around, I feel really strong and confident about it." Denver Post

Nuggets forward Wilson Chandler tried to play through his injured left hip on Sunday, but after the game, all he could talk about was the pain. On Wednesday, the team decided it was best that Chandler sit out the rest of the season and prepare for surgery on the labral tear in his left hip. Chandler averaged 9.4 points per game in eight appearances with the Nuggets this season, since signing at mid-season after playing in China. "I think Wilson is disappointed and sad. He came back here hoping to give us a big boost," Nuggets coach George Karl said. Denver Post
