Danilo Gallinari played only 23 minutes on Wednesday, scoring five points on 2-of-7 shooting with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and one turnover.
This is just the third time all season that Gallinari has played fewer than 35 minutes in a game. The Nuggets blew up their rotation after a terrible first half, but Gallinari's owners shouldn't panic. The veteran still looks like one of the safest bets in the rotation. Dec 7 - 11:23 PM

Danilo Gallinari hit 5-of-12 shots, three 3-pointers and 11-of-12 free throws for a season-high 24 points, four boards, three assists, two steals and a block in 38 minutes on Monday.

This was probably Gallo's best game of the season and he could be ready to get hot. Just hope that he can also stay healthy if you own him.
Dec 5 - 10:06 PM

Emmanuel Mudiay, Will Barton, Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried and Jusuf Nurkic will start against the Jazz on Saturday.

Coach Mike Malone was not happy about Friday's beatdown, but he'll roll with the same starters. If the Jazz hit a bunch of threes, there could be a lot of benching going on. Gallinari has played a ton of minutes and looked healthy in his last two.
Dec 3 - 8:54 PM

Danilo Gallinari scored 16 points with five rebounds, one assist, two 3-pointers and one turnover in 35 minutes against the Rockets on Friday.

Coach Mike Malone sure loves to go full throttle on Gallo. Despite being very injury prone, Gallinari has played 35.5 minutes per game in his last two after he missed the previous three games due to a thigh injury. The Nuggets will travel to Utah for Saturday, so maybe Malone keeps Gallo closer to 30 for that tough matchup.
Dec 3 - 1:54 AM

Danilo Gallinari (thigh) and Darrell Arthur (illness) will play against the Rockets on Friday.

The Nuggets usually throw guys on the injury report as probable after an injury, so the Italian was always expected to play. Expect Gallo to get his normal playing time and he could even play some four tonight in a favorable matchup. Get him in your lineup.
Dec 2 - 8:25 PM

Danilo Gallinari (thigh) is probable to play against the Rockets on Friday.

The Nuggets usually throw their players on the injury report with a probable tag after they returned from injury, so this is fairly standard. Gallinari looked fine in his return on Wednesday with 17 points, and should see minutes in the mid 30s in a favorable matchup on Friday.
Dec 1 - 5:24 PM

Danilo Gallinari (thigh) returned to action vs. Miami on Wednesday with 17 points (6-of-16 FGs, 4-of-6 FTs), four rebounds, four assists, one block and one 3-pointer.

Gallo came in averaging a career-high 36.2 minutes per game, and he didn't miss a beat while playing 36 minutes tonight. He wound up missing three games due to a deep bruise in his thigh, and it wouldn't be surprising if coach Mike Malone eased up his workload a bit as the season progresses. His lengthy injury history makes him a strong sell-high candidate.
Dec 1 - 12:56 AM

Danilo Gallinari (thigh) will start against the Heat on Wednesday.

He practiced on Tuesday and went through shootaround, so he should be ready to roll. Wilson Chandler will still get plenty of minutes off the bench as a backup forward. Get Gallinari in your lineups.
Nov 30 - 8:20 PM

Danilo Gallinari (thigh) went through a full shootaround on Wednesday and is expected to play against the Heat.

He also put in a full practice on Tuesday, so Gallinari looks like he'll be back tonight. The Nuggets were playing Gallo minutes in the upper 30s before his injury, but they may dial it back to around 30 tonight. He looks safe to start again for his owners.

Nuggets' head coach Mike Malone said that he'd be surprised if Danilo Gallinari (thigh) didn't play Wednesday vs. the Heat.

Gallinari has spent the past three games on the sidelines resting his sore thigh, but it's looking like he'll be back in action tonight, which will send Wilson Chandler back to the bench. Jamal Murray might not be quite as involved on the offensive end with the return of Gallinari, although he should still get a decent amount of minutes with Will Barton (ankle) doubtful.

Danilo Gallinari (thigh) and Will Barton (ankle) are being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Heat.

Both guys were able to get in a full practice on Tuesday, so things are trending in a positive direction here. Owners can expect to get another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but if both guys get back on the court, Wilson Chandler, Jameer Nelson and Jamal Murray's value will take a hit. Stay tuned.

Danilo Gallinari (thigh) and Will Barton (ankle) were full participants during Tuesday's practice.

Gallinari is only dealing with soreness in his thigh, and it looks like the three games he spent on the sidelines will have been enough time to rest up. If he is able to get back on the court for Wednesday's game against the Heat, Wilson Chandler's value would take a slight hit as he'd likely return to the bench. Owners can expect to get another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround.
Nov 29 - 3:10 PM

Danilo Gallinari (thigh), Will Barton (ankle) and Mike Miller (personal) will not play Sunday vs. the Suns.

This will be Gallinari's third straight game on the sidelines, but given that he's just dealing with a sore thigh, it seems there's a decent chance he'll be able to return to action Wednesday vs. Miami. With Denver's primary scoring options on the sidelines Sunday evening, Jamal Murray and Wilson Chandler will be running the show on offense, with Chandler likely moving into the starting five. Both those guys can be considered DFS options for a favorable matchup against Phoenix.

Danilo Gallinari (thigh), Will Barton (ankle rehab) and Juancho Hernangomez (ankle) are all questionable to face the Suns on Sunday.

Gallinari has missed the last two games due to his right thigh soreness and will likely be a game-time call. If all three of these guys can't go, we'll see a ton of Wilson Chandler at the three, more Jamal Murray, and Darrell Arthur would also get in the mix. Gallo is still a hold in standard leagues.
Nov 26 - 3:35 PM

Danilo Gallinari (right thigh soreness) will not play Friday vs. the Thunder.

Gallinari has averaged over 36 minutes per game this season, which is the seventh-highest average in the league. Encouragingly, Gallo did say his injured right thigh is "feeling better." He did not need an MRI. Wilson Chandler, Will Barton and the red-hot Jamal Murray all figure to benefit from Gallinari's absence. Chandler is averaging 19.5 points and 8.3 rebounds in 30 minutes off the Denver bench over the Nuggets last six games. Murray has been a beast of late, scoring at least 18 points in each of Denver's last three contests. Murray is shooting 57.5 percent from the floor and 68.8 percent (11-for-16) from 3-point territory over this recent stretch.
