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.

"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.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Gallinari has been bothered by a knee issue for much of the season and has struggled at times. He is averaging 8.0 points, which is only better than his rookie season when he averaged 6.1 points.
