Wilson Chandler to Undergo Season-Ending Hip Surgery

With the Playoffs looming, the Denver Nuggets have some very bad news regarding Wilson Chandler. He’s done for the year. From the Denver Post: “On Wednesday, the team decided it was best that Chandler sit out the rest of the season, preparing for surgery on the labral tear in his left hip. Chandler averaged 9.4 points in eight games with the Nuggets this season. He signed midseason after playing in China. The Nuggets said they expect Chandler will be available next season. ‘I think Wilson is disappointed and sad — he came back here hoping to give us a big boost,’ Nuggets coach George Karl said. ‘I heard the rehab takes a long time too, so we just have to be patient, and hopefully he’ll get back on the court. I hear it’s four, five months of rehab, but I’m not sure.'”
