Anthony Randolph should play at small-forward, and Wilson Chandler should ball at the 2-guard in the Denver Nuggets starting lineup for 2013-14. Once Chandler gets healthy enough to start for the Nuggets, coach Brian Shaw will have a mess on his hands.  Chandler hasn’t played in any preseason games.  He has missed all eight games from a hamstring injury he sustained at the beginning of training camp.  Most importatnly, the six-foot-eight forward hasn’t played a game in Shaw’s traingle offense.  The triangle system will take a while to develop.  When you have starters missing learning experiences, it hurts the growth of the system. Shaw hinted in the offseason that he wants Chandler to play at shooting guard once Danilo Gallinari returns from his ACL injury.  Why not put Chandler at the 2-guard now?  The more playing time Chandler gets at the position the better.   If Chandler goes through a learning curve with the triangle, he might as well do it at the position he will play a majority of the season. The answer to all of the Nuggets woes falls on the shoulders of a six-foot-eleven stretch forward: Anthony Randolph. Randolph has played great basketball in the preseason. In his last three games, Randolph has scored 15, 16, and 15 points respectivly.  The biggest attribute Randolph has brought this preaseason is his shooting.  He’s hit nearly all his shots from the top of the key.  If he has an open shot from the college three-point line it will go in 8/10 times. Coach Shaw has expressed his pleasure with Randolph’s performances this preseason. “Most people probably wouldn’t believe it, but he’s probably been our most consistent outside shooter,” Shaw said to the Denver Post. “There’s a logjam at our ‘big’ position, but he’s one of the guys I would say is making the most of his opportunity … He can basically play the three, four and some five in certain situations. His length can bother people defensively.” So, why not play Randolph at the three and move Chandler to the two? Not only would the Nuggets benefit short-term, but also in the long run for when Gallinari returns.  The Nuggets have weak depth at the 2-guard and can afford to give Chandler the minutes.  Chandler is listed as day-to-day and will miss the season opener on Oct. 30 at the Sacramento Kings.
