Danilo Gallinari hit 4-of-13 shots, 9-of-11 free throws and a 3-pointer on his way to 18 points, three rebounds, one assist and one steal in his return from a rest on Tuesday.
Gallinari's going to put up some gaudy numbers this season, at least until he gets hurt. Gallinari injuries seem to be as predictable as death and taxes, so owners drafting him have to put together a backup plan during the draft. Oct 18 - 10:52 PM

Danilo Gallinari (rest) will reportedly sit out Sunday's game vs. Portland.

The Nuggets are expected to start Jameer Nelson, Will Barton, Wilson Chandler, Nikola Jokic and Jusuf Nurkic. Gallo is just getting the night off, so his owners have nothing to worry about.
Oct 16 - 8:26 PM

Danilo Gallinari made 7-of-8 from the field for 19 points against the Warriors on Friday, adding eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and four 3-pointer.

That's an efficient line good for a 112.5 effective field goal percentage. In his three preseason games, Gallinari has scored a combined 52 points on an absurd 94.3 true shooting percentage. The production hasn't really been an issue for Gallo and it's just a matter of him staying healthy.

Danilo Gallinari will rest on Wednesday night.

It should be Wilson Chandler getting the biggest bump in minutes while we get a little more Juan Hernangomez, as well. Gallinari should be fine for the weekend as a mid-round pick.
Oct 12 - 6:41 PM

Danilo Gallinari returned to action on Sunday with 19 points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, three assists and one turnover in 28 minutes.

Gallo didn't look for his shot early tonight, going 3-of-5 from the field, but he thrived on contact with an 11-of-12 mark at the line. The 28-year-old is coming off a season that approached or set career-highs in most categories, but persistent injuries make him more of a gamble late in the middle rounds.
Oct 10 - 12:53 AM

Kenneth Faried and Danilo Gallinari are both out for Friday night.

It's just rest for the veterans. The Nuggets are going to have to solve some of their depth issues on the wing with Gary Harris (groin) expected to miss time. We should see more Will Barton, Wilson Chandler, Jamal Murray and maybe even Malik Beasley.

Danilo Gallinari thinks the Nuggets can make the playoffs this season.

"Yes, I think so," Gallinari said. "Especially from the players who were rookies last year and the young guys we got this year. They are hard workers, they understand the game that we have. The veterans that we have, are veterans with a great mentality. They have been there." Gallinari is fully recovered from the ankle injury that ended his 2015-16 season and will be a high-risk, high-reward pick in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts.

Danilo Gallinari stated during a recent interview that there was an opportunity for him to go to another team at the NBA trade deadline last season, but he declined the deal.

Darrell Arthur also declined to be traded this past season, which would imply that there's some good chemistry brewing in that locker room. Gallinari is fully recovered from the ankle injury that prematurely ended his 2015-16 campaign, and he'll open the year as Denver's starting small forward and go-to guy on offense. However, there will be a good amount of risk in drafting him considering that through eight years of NBA experience, he's only truly had two healthy seasons.
Sep 4 - 6:11 PM

Danilo Gallinari (ankle) worked out on Wednesday.

He was working out with an international basketball, so it looks like he's going to try to play for Italy this summer. Gallinari said he's fully over his ankle injury, which involved two torn ligaments. He'll be all set for his age-28 season next year.
May 18 - 6:47 PM

Danilo Gallinari said that he's fully recovered from the sprained ankle that prematurely ended his 2015-16 campaign, and he's already begun training for next year.

"I’m fine. I’ve recovered from my sprained ankle and I’m ready," said Gallinari. "I already began training." Gallinari produced some of the best numbers of his career this past season with averages of 19.5 points (career-high), 5.3 boards, 2.5 assists, 1.6 triples, 0.8 steals and just 1.5 turnovers per game, which was good enough for top-45 value in standard leagues. He'll make for a solid early mid-round selection in next year's drafts.
May 18 - 9:29 AM

Nuggets GM Tim Connelly said that Danilo Gallinari (ankle) was close to being an All-Star this season.

"I think Gallinari, with more team success, would have been an All-Star this year," Connelly said. "I’m so proud of how he bounced back from a major injury. He’s fully back, back better than ever. You’d be hard-pressed to find 10 tougher offensive matchups in the NBA." An unfortunate ankle injury cut his season short, but he looked great this year with averages of 19.5 points, 5.3 boards, 2.5 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.6 3-pointers on 41.0 percent shooting. He has some durability concerns, but he will be a nice mid-round pick next season.

Danilo Gallinari won't play again this season, but he did say that his ankle is making progress.

"It’s doing good," Gallinari said. "Most of the stuff on the court I’m not doing at a game speed. So, you know, shooting, sliding, running, any kind of motion, but not at game speed yet. That’s the level I’m at right now." Gallinari should be fully recovered for the summer, and he should be a nice pick in the early stages of the middle rounds next season after finishing this campaign with averages of 19.5 points, 5.3 boards, 2.5 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.6 3-pointers on 41.0 percent shooting, returning top-45 value on a per-game basis.

Danilo Gallinari (ankle) will not play again this season.

This was the expectation all along, as the Nuggets won't risk his health in a rebuilding season. Gallinari finishes the season with averages of 19.5 points, 5.3 boards, 2.5 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.6 3-pointers on 41.0 percent shooting from the field. He was a top-45 player in standard leagues on a per-game basis, so he should be a nice pick in the early stages of the middle rounds next season.
Apr 2 - 1:05 PM

Danilo Gallinari (ankle) said he'll likely miss the rest of the 2015-16 season.

Gallinari had been targeting late-March for his return, but said he's more likely to shut it down for the rest of the season with the Nuggets out of the playoff hunt. The 27-year-old was having a very solid season before injuring his ankle and will be worth a look in the early-middle rounds of fantasy drafts next season.

Danilo Gallinari (ankle) said he is happy in Denver and hopes that trade rumors don't come to fruition.

Trade rumors have been swirling around Gallinari all season, but the forward said he'd prefer to stay (and win) in Denver. "I am very happy to be in Denver and before thinking of other places I hope to win something here and play in this city for many years," Gallo said. The 27-year-old is unlikely to make it back in time for the fantasy playoffs as he's still a few weeks away from returning and can be cut by owners in standard leagues lacking an IR spot.
