In Karl's previous coaching stops, he never went more than 8 or 9 deep in the rotation, but the current Nuggets roster gives him 12 quality players that he can use.

So Karl will try to stretch the bench as much as he can. And he hopes nobody will bark about playing time.

"I don't think we have that problem right now," Karl said of the Nuggets, who have won 11 of their past 12 games heading into tonight's home game against the Washington Wizards. "It could become a problem. I just think we all realize it's a honeymoon here (now). We can't complain about the terrain because we just got to win games."

Karl said it has been tough sitting swingman Bryon Russell, who has not played because of a coach's decision in three of the past six games after shooting 3-for-3 on three-pointers March 5 against the Los Angeles Clippers. And big man Francisco Elson did not play Sunday because of injuries after starting two games last week.

Karl had planned to talk with Elson on Monday about his reduced role. But Karl ended practice after guard DerMarr Johnson made a half-court shot and Elson quickly was out the door, along with most of his teammates.
