Insight: The Nuggets, the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference last season, certainly haven't been the same without him. At the moment, Denver trails Phoenix by two games for the final playoff spot in the West. Wilson Chandler has done a solid job filling in at small forward (12.8 ppg in 29 games) but his ceiling isn't as high as Gallinari's.
