Denver Nuggets’ forward, Wilson Chandler has been sitting out so far this season due to a strained hamstring. He was hoping to be ready for the team’s opener against the Sacramento Kings last Wednesday night. There is still no timetable for Chandler’s return to the court, but coach says “Hopefully we will get him back soon,” according to Michael Kelly of nba.com. With Chandler sitting out, Anthony Randolph has been in the starting lineup for coach Bryan Shaw’s Nuggets. Coach Shaw wants to make sure that no small injuries turn into big injuries, so he will keep an injured player out a little extra time to make sure he has time to recover so he does not re-injure himself. “I’m being very conservative with him because I don’t want any hamstrings, calves, things of that nature that tend to linger if you let them completely heal. So I want him to get back to where he’s 100 percent before he can really get out there and start doing some stuff.” -Bryan Shaw (via Chris Dempsey, Denver Post) In the 2012-13 season, Chandler made a total of 43 appearances, starting in eight games, and averaging 13 points, 5.1 rebounds, 1.3 assists, and 1.05 steals in 25.1 minutes. He has a total of five career 30+ scoring games, and eight career double-double games.
