Sam Sharpe-US PRESSWIRE
Christopher Dempsey of the Denver Post caught up with Chandler on Dec. 28th and the forward has said he is hoping to return to action soon.
Chandler had the following to say to Dempsey via the Denver Post:
"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."
He credits work with doctors in Vail with turning the tide.
"When the guys went on the first couple of road trips, I was up in Vail doing physical therapy up there," Chandler said. "Those guys were really good. They sent the program down to our guys, so both working together, I just feel I had the best program." Full article: click here.
Chandler has only appeared in four games for the Nuggets this season, averaging 17 minutes, averaging 6.5 points and 5.0 rebounds. Before his hip injury Chandler appeared in just eight games for the Nuggets after returning to the NBA and the team in 2012 from China (where he played during the lockout).
Time will tell if Chandler can return to full form and again become the player who averaged over 14 points per game for the Knicks for three and a half seasons.
