Danilo Gallinari’s Knee Surgery Delayed, He May Be Out Until February

Denver Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari suffered a gruesome, season-ending left knee injury in April. The surgery to repair his torn ACL has been delayed, and Gallo thinks he might be out until as late as February. Per the Denver Post: “Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari (left knee surgery) originally was expected to be ready to play Jan. 1, but Gallinari confirmed by text Thursday that he might not return until later in January or maybe even February. While Gallinari underwent surgery on his meniscus four weeks ago, he had a slight delay and won’t have surgery on his torn anterior cruciate ligament for another two weeks, he said during a talk show on 102.3 ESPN. Gallinari suffered the season-ending injury April 4. He averaged 16.2 points and 5.2 rebounds — both career highs — and made a team-leading 135 3-pointers in 71 games this season. He finished second on the Nuggets to Andre Miller at 82 percent free-throw shooting while attempting 4.9 per game, most on the team.”

    sshhhhiiiaaatttt that sucks. i rlly hope for the nuggets that he pulls a shumpert instead of a d-rose next year. would be huge for that nuggets team if they’d get him back next year come playoff time. if the management wont blow up the roster i expect them to get to the playoffs anyway.
