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.

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."

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.

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."

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.
