It looks like the Denver Nuggets will have to go without their fifth year man from DePaul University when they play the San Antonio Spurs tomorrow night.

Wilson Chandler has been dealing with a hip injury. He's averaging 6.5 points per game in addition to five rebounds in 17.3 minutes per game this season. Chandler's best game this year was against the Orlando Magic back on Nov. 2 when he put away nine points and grabbed six boards in a 102-89 Nuggets loss.

Chandler spent his first three seasons in the NBA with the New York Knicks before the 2010-2011 season when he was traded from the Nuggets right back to the Knicks. Since rejoining the Nuggets for the 2011-2012 season, Chandler has played in just 12 games and gotten six starts after playing no less than 65 games in the previous three seasons. That includes playing in all 82 games, including 70 starts, for the Knicks in the 2008-2009 season.
