Houston Rockets center Tyson Chandler, who is nearing the end of his 19th season, hasn’t decided whether he will retire this offseason.

Chandler thought he would retire last summer, but then still felt the itch to play, according to ESPN’s Tim MacMahon.

“I’ll do myself some justice, not get ahead of myself and wait for that moment to come,” Chandler said.

Chandler spoke while inside the Orlando “bubble” about his situation.

“I did so much thinking even coming back now to be quite honest. I think everyone did,” Chandler said. “This is just different circumstances. I had to weigh so much in this situation and I decided to come back. I didn’t want it to end this way. I guess it all depends upon how my body feels after this run and how successful we are (in the restart) and then see where things lie.”

The 37-year-old has played 26 games for the Rockets this season and a total of 1,160 games in his career.

Chandler won a championship in 2011 with the Dallas Mavericks and was named to one All-Star game in 2013 with the New York Knicks.
