Nuggets' Danilo Gallinari scores 22 points in blowout loss Monday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari scored 22 points on 7 of 12 shooting from the field, including 3 of 5 from 3-point range, in Denver's 110-82 blowout loss to the Nets Monday.

Gallinari, who also shot a perfect 5 of 5 from the free throw line, reached double figures for the third consecutive game and fourth in his last six. He added two rebounds and two steals to his totals.


Nuggets' Danilo Gallinari to start at shooting guard Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2015) Nuggets small forward Danilo Gallinari will draw the start at shooting guard Friday after the team dealt Arron Afflalo before Thursday's trade deadline, the Denver Post reports.

"Give him an opportunity as a starter, as least for now, to see what that looks like and see if that helps his confidence and his timing," coach Brian Shaw said of the decision to start Gallinari.

Gallinari has yet to look 100 percent since suffering a knee injury two Aprils ago, averaging 8.2 points and 19.3 minutes while shooting just 34.4 percent from the field. However, the team believes he's still improving "by the day."

"After 19 months of missing basketball there's certainly going to be a high level of expected rust," Nuggets general manager Tim Connelly said. "I think he's getting better by the day. I think with Gallo we know what we have, we have to be patient, we've got to continue to play through the ups and downs, and we'll see that guy again."


Improving Danilo Gallinari worth a look for Fantasy


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2015) Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari has faced a very tough road in his return from knee surgery, but he might be coming out the other side. Should Fantasy owners take note?

At his best, Gallinari was a solid Fantasy option putting up scoring averages in the mid-teens with strong shooting, free-throw shooting and passing numbers. He hasn't been that yet this season, but he is starting to turn things around. Over the last five games, Gallinari is averaging 12.8 points, 1.8 3-points and 3.0 free-throws made per game, in just 20.4 minutes. And he might see his playing time increase moving forward, as coach Brian Shaw's frustration with his team opens up playing time for anyone who can produce.

Gallinari is owned in just 35 percent of CBSSports.com leagues right now, and that sounds about right for where he is right now. However, with forward such a shallow position and the possibility of more minutes opening up as Shaw continues to tinker with the rotation, he might be worth taking a flier on if you are desperate for help.

Nuggets SF Danilo Gallinari trying to survive tough times


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari is testing uncharted and rough waters these days. He wants more playing time, but will miss at least the next two games with bone bruises in his right knee. That makes it tough to round back into form after missing 19 months with an ACL injury.

Brian Shaw would like to allow Gallinari to work off the rust on the court, but has no such luxury. His team is 10-12 in the brutal Western Conference. That pace would send the team packing after the regular season. And fellow small forward Wilson Chandler appears to be embarking on his finest season.

"It's tough," Gallinari told the Denver Post. "It's a situation I've never been in before. And so what I'm trying to do is focus on what I can control. And what I can control is to come in every morning, put in my work, be ready for games, and that's all I can do."

Gallinari is averaging just 18 minutes per game and shooting a frigid 32.8 percent from the floor.

Gallinari has struggled this year while trying to recover from knee surgery. He averages 14.0 points for his career, but is averaging 6.7 points this season. He will be considered day to day until his knee recovers.

Wilson Chandler, Danilo Gallinari still battling for starting spot


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/22/2014) Nuggets coach Brian Shaw indicated that if Wilson Chandler continues to play at a high level, he could earn the starting job at small forward over Danilo Gallinari, per the Denver Post.

"If we reel off a ton of games in a row and we get in a groove with everything being the way it is, I would leave it the same way," coach Brian Shaw said. "I did tell Gallo and Wilson, when I made the change to put Wilson in the starting lineup, that it wasn't going to be permanent. And so, now it's just a matter of when I feel confident enough in Gallo being back to where he was or close to where he was, to switch it back. But he's not there yet, and so we'll just leave it the way it is."

Chandler has started 10 of the team's first 12 games this season, averaging 12.0 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 28.3 minutes per contest. Gallinari, who is coming off ACL surgery, is averaging 6.9 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 17.7 minutes per game.
