Question about 2008 Chevrolet Uplander
It appears that the tumbler may have been changed or has become disconnected from the tumbler lock. You will have to remove it and put it back in unless it's broken. The catch for the steering wheel lock must be depressed when putting a new tumbler in. (There are several Youtube videos out there that show exactly how to do this... it's not difficult, just be patient.)

SOURCE: key won't turn in the ignition
You may need to have they key reprogrammed at your local dealer. The keys have a transponder built in them as an anti theft device. If the transponder becomes damaged, it will need reprogramming or replacement. *NOTE* This costs MUCH more than just having your key copied (between $30 and $75 US)

SOURCE: Steering wheel is locked up
With the key in the ignition, tap on the key with something heavy like a pair of pliers, screwdriver etc. It will cause the pin inside the mechanism to drop, and the iginition will turn. Happened to me today, worked like a charm.
