Nuggets resting key players latelyThe Denver Nuggets are 26-42 and occasionally making sure that players rest up and stay healthy so that they can fully enjoy their summers. And of course, totally unrelated to this is that if they rest key players and lose a bit more, it'll help their draft position. Here's the Denver Post reporting:

At New Orleans, the Nuggets rested Wilson Chandler, Randy Foye and Darrell Arthur, and won in double overtime. On Monday in Memphis, Hunt sat Ty Lawson, Danilo Gallinari and Kenneth Faried in a narrow loss to the Grizzlies.

Players weren't happy.

[Nuggets coach Melvin] Hunt said the decision to sit players came from everyone from the front office to the coaching staff.

"Our organization is making that decision," Hunt said. "We're all in concert. We're all in it, we're all consulted. We all talk. We, the Denver Nuggets are making the decision."

Hunt said he understood fans might not like the strategy, as it would seem to indicate the Nuggets aren't doing everything they can to win...

Winning games is costing the Nuggets a chance at getting a top lottery draft pick. The Nuggets have the eighth-worst record in the NBA, and are 6-3 under Hunt. They've fallen farther away from the coveted top five for those teams whose seasons have fallen apart.
