DENVER (AP) - All anyone wants to talk about is where Carmelo Anthony may land next.
All that chatter, though, has obscured and overshadowed the steady play of the team he's on.
By piecing different parts together, the Denver Nuggets have weathered a wave of injuries and are off to a start that even coach George Karl says is ahead of where he imagined the team might be at this point.
For once, the news of the day out of the Nuggets had nothing to do with Anthony and the swirling rumors.
Instead, it centered on the fact the Nuggets may have big men Chris Andersen and Kenyon Martin back in the lineup Wednesday night in San Antonio, along with point guard Chauncey Billups, who's missed the last three games with a torn ligament in his right wrist.
