Danilo Gallinari Says He May Return Sooner from ACL Injury

by June 14, 2013

Denver Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari had some pretty good news for the team’s fans on Friday. Gallo says that doctors discovered that he didn’t tear his left ACL after all, and that despite fears his recovery would take longer than expected, he may return to the court sooner than anyone had previously anticipated. Per the Denver Post: “Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari posted a video on his official Facebook page Friday in Italian, and the video was translated to say that surgery revealed his left ACL wasn’t torn and recovery time will be ‘completely different’ than expected, according to the Italian journalist Davide Chinellato (a writer for Italian La Gazzetta dello Sport who translated Gallo’s video and posted the quotes on Twitter). […] Chinellato tweeted that Gallo called it ‘great news.’ Here are more tweets from him: ‘#Nuggets Gallinari: ‘I underwent a healing response procedure, in which ligament is stimulated to respond naturally’ … ‘This procedure changes completely my rehab and recovery time. But I’ll inform you later about that.'”
