Nuggets' Danilo Gallinari will need surgery to repair meniscus tear


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) The Nuggets have ruled small forward Danilo Gallinari out indefinitely after being diagnosed with a meniscus tear in his right knee. The injury will require surgery, per the Denver Post.

He appeared in 24 games (two starts) and averaged 7.8 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.1 assists while logging 18.8 minutes of game action. There's no timetable for return, although the Nuggets expect him to return at some point this season.

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.

"The guy was out 19 months," Nuggets coach Brian Shaw said. "He's still experiencing a little bit of pain. He's not back to the level he wants to be at."

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.
