Denver is going to be able to throw one of the best point guard combinations in the NBA at the Sacramento Kings opening night.

Ty Lawson was a game-time call due to a groin strain but coach Brian Shaw said at shootaround that Lawson would be good to go Wednesday, reports Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post.

The injury happened a week ago and Lawson had been limited since then, and he may be during the game.

Wilson Chandler remains out with his hamstring injury and could miss the first week of the season, according to reports.
