Wilson Chandler's 2011-2012 season was a forgettable one. The forward spent the first part of the lockout-shortened season in China, before returning to the Denver Nuggets. Chandler's season will end after only playing in eight games for Denver this season. He'll miss the rest of the season with hip surgery, but will be ready to return for next season.
I feel for #Nuggets F @wilsonchandler. He tried to make late-season impact but hip injury puts him out for season.— Aaron J. Lopez (@Lopez_Nuggets) April 18, 2012
After surgery, Wilson is expected to be ready to play by the start of the 2012-13 season.— Aaron J. Lopez (@Lopez_Nuggets) April 18, 2012
Chandler returned to play seven minutes against the Houston Rockets on April 15.
Chandler averaged 9.4 points per game for Denver this season.
