Danilo Gallinari Fractured His Left Thumb

Danilo Gallinaris suffered a broken left thumb last night, and he could be out for up to a month. Per the Denver Post: “In the third quarter, forward Danilo Gallinari was spotted holding his hand after attempting to block an Ian Mahinmi layup attempt. Gallo then went to the locker room where it was discovered he had a fractured left thumb. Gallinari is a right-handed shooter. ‘I don’t know how long it’s going to be,’ said Gallinari. ‘It’s not going to be short. It’s a fracture. The doctor told me the fracture takes four weeks to heal. Hopefully I can put something on and play sooner than that.’”

    At least they have about two dozen solid players who can fill in for him.

    Smh… Whenever anything positive happens in the NBA, something always gets in the way and forces franchises back a step or two in the wrong direction.

    I swear my fantasy team is doomed. Eric Gordon, Chauncey Billups, Rubio and now Gallo. smh.

    should take care of it Gallo (i know he don’t read this). I fractured my thumb in 2008, and i never did anything about it. It is still f*cked up. Probably will be for until i get it surgically broken and placed. Get it fixed before it becomes a bigger issue in a more important season.

    My fantasy team this year: Steph Curry, Andrea Bargnani, Brook Lopez, Danillo Gallinari…yeah talk about getting screwed over

    dfrance: I had/have Gordon, Rubio, Bogut, Lowry, Pekovic, and Rose. I think you might have got it worse. Best of luck to Gallinari.

    Sh*t, DFrance already knows, but, I have lost, Horford, Bogut, Billups, Rubio. That’s my 2nd round pick, 5th and 6th round picks. and Rubio. Good thing I had the sense to pick up Wilson Chandler as soon as he came back before he even put on his jersey, and got Luke Ridnour at midnight the night Ricky’s knee blew up (i have to stop myself from getting sick just typing that last part)

    ^I grabbed Wilson too, that should turn out really nice. I also grabbed Ridnour but I noticed that Lowry was on the wire because of injury. I chose Lowry for the playoffs instead of Luke.
