The Denver Nuggets could be drastically short-handed on Wednesday night vs. the Sacramento Kings in their season opener:
#Nuggets coach Brian Shaw said he is expecting not to have Ty Lawson or Wilson Chandler for Wednesday's season opener

Lawson has a groin injury and Chandler has been battling a hamstring injury since training camp.
The Nuggets are already low on the wing with Danilo Gallinari still recovering from ACL surgery and this means Quincy Miller, Jordan Hamilton, and Anthony Randolph could be getting time at the three.
Sacramento’s a pretty soft opponent to open up with, but this means arguably the Nuggets’ three best players could be out Wednesday night. That’s going to be pretty tough to overcome on the road.
