Anthony Randolph came into Tuesday's game against the Raptors having played just 122 minutes all season.
With the Denver Nuggets having four players out, Randolph played 27 minutes while scoring 16 points to go with seven rebounds and three steals.
"We've seen it in practice all year, and today he got a chance to show it," Ty Lawson said. "He's just versatile. ... He can handle the ball, rebound, and does all the little things. (With injuries), there's a lot of minutes out there, and he's definitely hungry to get some. He can be a big-time player with an opportunity."
The Nuggets lost the game by a final score of 109-108.
