Chandler (illness) will start Wednesday's game against the Bucks, Gerald Bourguet of HoopsHabit reports.

EDGE Analysis

Chandler, who went through practice Monday, will return from a three-game absence and will immediately be back in the starting five, displacing Greg Monroe at center. Given the presence of Monroe, who made his Suns debut while Chandler was out, Chandler could see a slight dip in minutes going forward, as the pair is unlikely to see much time on the court together.

Chandler (illness) returned to practice Monday and expected to play in Wednesday's game against the Bucks, Scott Bordow of the Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Chandler has missed the last three games while working through an illness, but finally feels as if he's nearing full strength. He was able to partake in practice Monday without any issues, so look for Chandler to return to the lineup on Wednesday barring any setbacks. That said, with Greg Monroe playing well as a fill-in center and the presence of Alex Len, the center rotation is a bit unclear at this point in time, so it may be wise to avoid the situation until some clarity is provided.

Chandler (illness) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bulls, Chuck Swirsky of the Bulls Radio Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

This will be the third straight game Chandler misses due to the illness, and in his absence, Greg Monroe is expected to pick up yet another start at center. Chandler will have two days to recover before his next opportunity to return Wednesday against the Bucks.

Chandler (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bulls, Scott Bordow of the Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Chandler has missed the last two games with an illness and it remains to be seen if he's feeling well enough to be cleared for a return Sunday. Another update should be provided following pregame warmups, but if Chandler is held out once again, Greg Monroe would likely pick up a third straight start. Over the last two, Monroe averaged 13.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.5 steals across 21.0 minutes.

Chandler (illness) has been ruled out for both Thursday's game against the Rockets and Friday's matchup with the Lakers, Tim MacMahon of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Chandler is just dealing with an illness and while that likely shouldn't result in an extended absence, he'll still have to miss the Suns' upcoming back-to-back set. The next opportunity for Chandler to play will be Sunday against the Bulls, but in the meantime, look for Alex Len to start at center and see increased minutes. Both Marquese Chriss and Dragan Bender could be tasked with more time at center as well, especially if Greg Monroe continues to sit out with a calf injury.

Chandler is dealing with an illness and is questionable for Thursday's game against the Rockets, Scott Bordow of the Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Considering it's an illness, Chandler likely won't miss much time, but the fact that the Suns are heading into a back-to-back set certainly presents the potential for him to miss a few games. For now, however, he'll remain questionable and if he does miss time, Alex Len would likely pick up the start in his place.

Chandler (back) supplied four points (1-1 FG, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and two blocks across 28 minutes in Saturday's 118-110 win over the Timberwolves.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran returned to action after missing the prior two games and was serviceable, although he didn't need to do much offensively with Devin Booker and T.J. Warren taking a combined 44 shots. Chandler can still haul in double-digit boards on any given night, but his double-digit scoring efforts figure to be few and far between in this, his age-35 season.

Chandler (back) will draw the start at center for Saturday's game against the Timberwolves.

EDGE Analysis

Chandler missed the team's two previous games while dealing with a sore back. He'll play Saturday, however. As a result, Alex Len and Marquese Chriss will probably see fewer minutes.

Chandler (back) will not play Friday against the Magic, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Chandler continues to battle back spasms, which also kept him out of Wednesday's loss to the Heat. In the absence of the 35-year-old, expect Alex Len to make another start at center, with both Marquese Chriss and Dragan Bender in line for increased minutes, as well. Chandler's next chance to play will come Saturday against Minnesota.
