(11/3/13) Nuggets forward Anthony Randolph was held out of practice Sunday due to a sprained ankle, the team announced.
Randolph played 15 minutes in each of the team's first two games, and his absence from practice compounds the team's injury issues at small forward.
|Anthony Randolph impressing his coach |

(10/22/13) Stop us if you've heard this one before -- Nuggets forward Anthony Randolph is set to be a key contributor this season. Making that claim this time is new Nuggets coach Brian Shaw, who was talking Randolph up Monday.
"There's a logjam at our 'big' position," Shaw told the Denver Post. "But he's one of the guys I would say is making the most of his opportunity."
Randolph, who has averaged single digits in scoring in four of his five NBA seasons, has impressed his coach with his ability to stretch the floor, a trait sorely lacking in the Nuggets' crowded frontcourt.
"Most people probably wouldn't believe it, but he's probably been our most consistent outside shooter throughout camp," Shaw said.
Randolph has been pressed into duty at small forward at times in the preseason, a spot he might be able to find time at once the season starts, if the team's injury concerns continue. He scored 16 points at small forward against the Clippers earlier in the preseason.
"I like his versatility," Shaw said. "He can basically play the three, four and some five in certain situations. His length can bother people defensively, but he just kind of floats, and I think part of that is because he doesn't have a natural position. Part of me wants to say, 'This is what you are.' But I think that would take away from other areas to use the versatility that he has."
Randolph averaged just 3.7 points in 8.4 minutes per game a year ago.
|The two words that best sum up Anthony Randolph's first four seasons in the league would be: overhyped and disappointment. The 23-year-old has failed to live up to his potential during his first few seasons in the league and now he finds himself on his fifth team in as many years after being signed by Nuggets over the summer. While Randolph has shown flashes of his potential over the past few seasons, he has never been able to put together more than a few weeks of good basketball. He enters the 2012-13 campaign with career averages of 8.5 points and 5.1 rebounds per game and is career 45.9 percent shooter from the field over his career. He is also a decent shot blocker and will likely compete for minutes at power forward this season with Kenneth Faried. Still, because he has yet to prove he can consistently produce at this level, Randolph is only worth targeting in the later rounds on Draft Day in deeper Fantasy formats. There is some upside there however. (Updated 8/22/12) |
