After playing just three games before suffering a hip injury, Wilson Chandler returned to the Denver Nuggets on Sunday and scored 14 points in 20 effective minutes.

Chandler is finally pain-free and was encouraged by his first game back, but he admitted he still has room for improvement with his basketball shape.

“Still got a ways to go," Chandler said. "... Hopefully a couple of weeks or even faster than that. Just continue doing the same things I’ve been doing the last few months and see where I go from there. It felt good just to be out there, having fun. Last year and this year not being healthy, it’s frustrating, but it’s part of the game.”
