Nuggets anticipate adjustment period for Danilo Gallinari


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Nuggets head coach Brian Shaw told reporters Monday that there will be an adjustment period for forward Danilo Gallinari, who last played on April 4, 2013 because of knee issues, according to the Denver Post. Gallinari underwent three surgeries, including a failed experimental procedure which cost him to miss the entire 2013-14 season.

"You can learn about it, but if you're not working on the court, it's not the same thing," Gallinari said. "I'm starting to understand (Shaw's) concept of the game offensively and defensively. ... You guys know me, I can fit in any system. I'm versatile. There's no system that doesn't fit me."


Danilo Gallinari will be ready for training camp


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari was with the team over the last few games of the season, and he has reportedly made great strides in his recovery from ACL surgery.

Gallinari told the Denver Post he has already progressed to running and jumping as part of his recovery from January surgery. He has progressed so quickly he even dunked for the first time Tuesday, and said he will be fully recovered by the start of training camp.

Danilo Gallinari undergoes ACL surgery, done for the year


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2014) Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari has missed the first half of 2013-14 season, and will reportedly be shut down for the remainder of it following knee surgery. Yahoo Sports reports that Gallinari underwent reconstructive ACL surgery Tuesday, which will sideline him for the rest of the year.

Hope for a 2013 return came when his meniscus procedure revealed only a partial tear of the ACL, but the healing treatment Gallinari opted for didn’t go as smoothly as he’d hoped. Gallinari averaged 16.2 points and 5.2 rebounds per game last season before going down with the knee injury in April. 


Danilo Gallinari could miss season


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2014) Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari believes there's a chance he'll miss the entire season while recovering from a torn ACL, La Gazzetta dello Sport reports.

"I got over the most boring part, by now," Gallinari said. "The muscle tone is back, in the gym I lift weights I never lifted before. I work with the ball and changes of direction. Let's say I still have to work on the mental part, the most important one. Because it's inevitable to think about my knee.

"I haven't set a date for the comeback," Gallinari added. "It's a decision we will take further on. Hypothesis to miss this season? Everything can happen. It's an idea that passed through my mind. But then, maybe, I get back before."

Gallinari began running in mid-December, but he still doesn't have an official timetable for his return after suffering the injury in April.

(12/11/2013) Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari, who is recovering from a torn ACL, has begun running, the Denver Post reports.

"It's a big step," Gallinari said. "It's a big step towards the rehab. That makes you understand a little bit more what the situation (is). It was a pretty good step. ... No sideways, just forward and backwards and that's it. It feels pretty good. It doesn't feel like I haven't been running since the fourth of April, a lot of months. It doesn't feel as good as it could be, but it's going to be better every day."

Gallinari also has been able to shoot "a little bit," but he has no timetable for his return.


Danilo Gallinari far behind in recovery process


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Gallinari, who is working his way back from a partially torn ACL, won't return next week, as he'd hoped. Although, he is still "far away" from a return and still does not have a date for when he'll begin on-court running.

"Ahead of me I have a lot of things to do - running on the court, being able to do cutting and everything that you do on the court, and be able to play," Gallinari said. "So a lot of stuff. What we are doing now, we are able to run on the AlterG, this anti-gravity machine. We're able to do that and other stuff in the weight room."

Danilo Gallinari aiming for late November


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2013) When Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari underwent surgery on his partially torn ACL in June, it was estimated that he’d miss half of the 2013-14 season. Now with preseason a few weeks away, the Denver Post reports that Gallinari thinks he could be back sooner.

“It’s been a summer of hard work,” he said. “Eight hours a day … But I can see the results of the hard work and according to the doctors I should be ready for the end of November.”

Gallinari was the second leading scorer for Denver last season before he went down, averaging 16.2 points per game. That number should go up if he can get back to 100 percent health, as the Nuggets will be without Andre Iguodala’s 13 points per contest this season.

Gallinari, 24, averaged 16.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 71 games this season. “We’re extremely disappointed for Gallo. He was having a career year in scoring and rebounding and was a huge reason for our success,” Nuggets executive vice president of basketball operations Masai Ujiri said. “We will obviously support him and be there for him throughout his recovery. Knowing his work ethic and commitment to getting back on the floor, we are confident he will come back stronger than ever next season.” Surgery will be scheduled at a later date, and a prognosis for a full recovery is excellent.
