The small forward is yet to feature for the team this season, having injured his hamstring on the second day of training camp.
The 26-year-old told reporters: "I felt pretty good. I took hits better than I thought I would. The only thing that bothered me was conditioning. I've seen a couple games where we lost by a few points, thinking maybe I could've helped.
Head coach Brian Shaw added: "He brings a lot to the table. I kind of got a little gleam in my eye in anticipation of him coming back. Just overall, it gives a big shot in our arm having him out there.
"I'll play it by ear as we go. I wouldn't immediately throw [Chandler] into the starting lineup. Just get him in, get him a good five-minute run, see how that goes and build from there."
