Sixers coach Brett Brown was asked Thursday where Wilson Chandler was in his rehabilitation. The 76ers reserve forward hasn’t played or practiced since straining his left hamstring against Melbourne United on Sept. 28. “He’s a ways away,” Brown said of the 31-year-old Chandler. “My experience with hamstrings is … that rarely is it less than a month [recovery], rarely. It’s not like he’s 20 years old … We don’t want to rush him back into doing anything.”

Before a few days ago, Wilson Chandler would have had a tough time recalling the last time he cried. But tears welled up in his eyes when he realized his season, this season, was over before it ever began. “In the past when I’ve had surgery I’ve been down, but never got teary eyes like this,” said Chandler on Thursday, one day after the Nuggets made it known the veteran forward needs season-ending surgery to repair a labral tear. “It’s like ‘Man, it’s always something.’ Definitely heartbreaking, especially after the summer I’ve had.”

On Wednesday, Fox Sports 1 host Skip Bayless repeated a false claim tweeted by a parody account stating that NBA star James Harden stormed out of several Houston Rockets practices in tears after his teammate Chris Paul mocked his “manboobs.” With Harden and Paul’s “unsalvageable” relationship being the focus of sports media this week, a parody Twitter account posing as ESPN’s top NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowski wrote that sources say Paul had insulted Harden’s figure.
