Danilo Gallinari hit 9-of-13 shots, four 3-pointers and 6-of-6 free throws for 28 points, five rebounds and two assists in 34 minutes of Monday's 104-101 win over the Mavs.
Gallo's free throws put the Clippers up one point during a 13-0 run by the Clippers to close out the game, and an Avery Bradley layup off a tremendous jump ball tip by DeAndre Jordan sealed the win for the Clips. LAC is just outside of the Top 8 in the West and they've won four of their last five games (two of their last three since trading Blake Griffin). Gallinari's playing very well and hasn't missed a free throw since his return to action, but it's also probably just a matter of time before he's hurt again. Enjoy him while he's still healthy.

Danilo Gallinari scored 24 points with nine rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday.

It was just his second game with 20-plus points and it's been a rough ride for Gallo this year. The good news is he should be shooting more and he did play more power forward with Blake Griffin out of town. If he can stay healthy and active on the Clippers, maybe Gallo can hit mid-round value.
Feb 3 - 6:32 PM

Danilo Gallinari (glute) returned to action on Tuesday vs. the Blazers with 15 points, five rebounds, one assist and one triple in 25 minutes.

He's been out since Dec. 9, but the Clippers may have played him a little more than they wanted to since Tobias Harris, Avery Bradley and Boban Marjanovic haven't been cleared to play yet. Gallo didn't show much rust tonight, and with a couple days off before Saturday's game, it's possible he could flirt with 30 minutes in that one. He's worth picking back up or activating off your I.R. spot, but it remains to be seen if he can actually stay on the floor.
Jan 31 - 1:08 AM

Danilo Gallinari (glute) is starting vs. the Blazers on Tuesday.

In case you missed it, none of the new Clippers (Tobias Harris, Avery Bradley and Boban Marjanovic) will play tonight. Gallinari hasn't played since December 9, so expect some heavy restrictions. He's worth picking up, but his owners will need to be patient with him.
Jan 30 - 10:16 PM

Danilo Gallinari (glute) will play Tuesday vs. the Trail Blazers.

Gallinari hasn't played since December 9, so expect there to be plenty of rust and minutes restrictions on him in his return to action tonight. It'll probably be at least a few weeks until he really starts going, but with Blake Griffin no longer a part of the equation in Los Angeles, Gallinari should easily establish himself as the No. 1 or 2 option in the offense. He has top-30 potential and needs to be owned in all leagues. Tyron Wallace's days of relevancy in 12-team leagues could be numbered.
Jan 30 - 2:57 PM

Danilo Gallinari (glute) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Trail Blazers.

Gallinari has been targeting a Tuesday return for some time now, and Doc Rivers said on Sunday that he was "very, very, very close," so there's a good chance we'll see him back in action tomorrow. He'll likely be eased back into things considering he's spent all but 11 games on the sidelines this season, but he's got top-30 upside and needs to be owned in all leagues at this point. Tyron Wallace and Wes Johnson's minutes will take a hit once Gallinari gets back into the rotation.
Jan 29 - 5:40 PM

Danilo Gallinari (glute) will not suit up for Sunday's game against the Pelicans.

Doc Rivers said that Gallinari is "very, very, very close," and The Rooster mentioned on Friday that he's shooting to return to the court on Tuesday against Portland, so he should be owned in all leagues at this point. Tyrone Wallace's value will take a massive hit upon Gallinari's return.
Jan 28 - 3:03 PM

Danilo Gallinari (glute) is doubtful for Sunday against the Pelicans.

He said that Tuesday is a possible return date, and apparently there's an outside chance he can return tomorrow. The Clippers have said they won't rush Gallinari back, so it's possible he won't be back for a few more games. Tyrone Wallace and Wes Johnson would be taking a hit once Gallo is back. Go ahead and add Gallo in 12-team leagues.
Jan 27 - 3:27 PM

Danilo Gallinari (hip) said a return to the lineup is a possibility for Tuesday against the Blazers.

It sounds like he could make it back within the next week, so next weekend seems like a reasonable target date. Coach Doc Rivers has said multiple times that he won't rush Gallinari back, and chances are he will have a minutes limit upon his return. He's having a brutal season, but he's not a bad stash if you can afford it.
Jan 26 - 8:46 PM

Danilo Gallinari (hip) is not expected to play in the next three games.

The good news is he said he could return after the Pelicans game. Gallinari is doing work at practice right now, but the Clippers have said multiple times that they won't be rushing him back. If you can wait a week or so, Gallinari is worth a stash.
Jan 24 - 9:23 PM

Coach Doc Rivers said that Danilo Gallinari (glute) is "getting closer" to returning to the Clippers lineup.

Over this past weekend, it was reported that Gallo "hopes to return in the next couple weeks." Thus, while it is encouraging to learn that Gallinari was "on the floor" on Monday, it seems he still has a ways to go before he is cleared for full-contact practice. He remains a stash in deeper leagues.
Jan 23 - 11:33 AM

Danilo Gallinari (glute) reportedly "hopes to return in the next couple weeks."

There haven't been many concrete updates and we'll take what we can get. The oft-injured veteran is dealing with a partially torn left glute -- he was expected to miss about six weeks as of Dec. 21, so this fits his initial timetable. Given the uncertainty of his situation, most owners should probably wait until we've seen him practice before stashing him.

Clippers coach Doc Rivers said Danilo Gallinari (glute) is making progress.

"He’s definitely moving better," Rivers said. "There’s no update on his return or anything like that. But it’s the best that I’ve seen him move around, sure. And I think that has to be a pretty positive sign." Gallinari was spotted doing some on-court work over the weekend, but the Clippers aren't ready to provide a timetable. He said back on Dec. 21 that he expects to miss about six weeks, so he's going to be tough to stash if you don't have an I.R. spot.
Jan 1 - 11:38 AM

Danilo Gallinari (glute) said he expects to miss six weeks of action.

"I have to rest and recover. We hope to treat the injury better than the first time to avoid setbacks," Gallinari said. "The first time I have missed four weeks, now I will be out six weeks. I hope to return between the end of January and the beginning of February. It is a very frustrating situation." We learned on Wednesday that Gallinari has a partial tear in his glute, so the Clippers are going to proceed with caution. If you don't have an I.R. spot, he will be hard to stash because we may not see him until the All-Star break. There will be plenty of shots to go around in his absence and Jamil Wilson will have to step up.

Danilo Gallinari (glute) has a partial tear and he will be re-evaluated in January.

He originally suffered a contusion to his glute muscle, but subsequent imaging revealed a partial tear. The Clippers will have him go through a rehab process and will re-evaluate him in a couple weeks. Given how coach Doc Rivers has said multiple times that he won't rush players back, it's possible we don't see Gallo until the break. Jamil Wilson is going to handle more minutes while there are plenty of shots to go around.
