Chandler has been forced to miss the majority of the 2011-12 NBA season after signing with a Chinese team during the NBA lockout. Due to international basketball rules, many players who signed contracts with a Chinese team when they thought the regular NBA season would be cancelled due to the labor fight between players and owners were forced to stay with their Chinese squads until the culmination of their season.

Chandler is currently a restricted free-agent, meaning that the Nuggets have the ability to match any contract offered to him by any other team. Last season he averaged 15.3 points and 5.6.1 rebounds per game in 72 contests. The 23-year-old was drafted 23rd overall in the 2007 NBA draft by New York. The Nuggets, 17-15, have struggled since an injury forced star forward Danilo Gallinari to the bench. They have won just two of their past 10 games.
