Danilo Gallinari (ankle) returned after a one-game absence against the Clippers on Saturday, scoring 18 points with four rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes.
The Nuggets are just rolling as an offense and it really hasn't even mattered who starts. Coach Mike Malone seems hellbent on playing Gallinari big minutes and was headed to the upper 30s today because he didn't play in the final nine minutes for garbage time. Gallo is a must-start guy, but the injury risk is real. Jan 22 - 12:47 AM

Danilo Gallinari (ankle) says he will play Saturday vs. the Clippers

Gallinari sat out Thursday's game vs. the Spurs after logging heavy minutes on his nagging ankle earlier in the week. The Nuggets have been unafraid to play Gallinari plenty even when he is dealing with bumps and bruises. Feel free to insert Gallo back in your starting lineup for Saturday. Gallinari's return will cut into Will Barton and Jamal Murray's minutes.

Danilo Gallinari (ankle) is listed as questionable to play against the Clippers on Saturday.

Back on Wednesday, he was listed as probable for Thursday, but he did not play in the loss to the Spurs. Gallinari was only ruled out about 30 minutes before the game started, so he was fairly close to playing. If he's out again, Juancho Hernangomez could get another start, but he would be a risky play with Wilson Chandler likely back.

Danilo Gallinari (ankle) has been ruled out to face the Spurs on Thursday night.

He was probable on Wednesday, but was downgraded this morning to questionable. The Nuggets have continuously listed him as probable for several points this season and would play him, but they'll sit him against Kawhi Leonard. Hopefully, it's just a one-day thing for the oft-injured forward. Will Barton should get massive minutes tonight while Jamal Murray and Juan Hernangomez get some decent burn.

Danilo Gallinari (right ankle) has been downgraded to questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Spurs.

He was listed as probable on Wednesday, so this is a concern. However, a conflicting report from Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post said Gallinari is a "go." The forward has been on the injury report in his previous three games, but played 30, 40 and 39 minutes in those three contests. If he's unable to play, rookie Juan Hernangomez could see a sizable bump in minutes. Will Barton should also be a workhorse on the wings. Hopefully we'll have more clarity soon.

Danilo Gallinari (right ankle) is probable to play on Thursday against the Spurs on Thursday.

This is fairly routine for the Nuggets with Gallo also on the injury report on Tuesday. He played 39 minutes and scored 14 points, so he's fairly close to healthy.
Jan 18 - 5:06 PM

Danilo Gallinari (ankle) and Will Barton (illness) will play on Tuesday vs. the Lakers.

Both players were listed as probable, but they are ready to roll in a favorable matchup vs. the Lakers. Get them active and check back after the game for an update.
Jan 17 - 9:18 PM

Danilo Gallinari (left ankle soreness) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers.

Gallinari has been battling a nagging ankle injury for over a week now, but it has not limited his playing time. In fact, Gallo played a game-high 40 minutes in Monday's win over the Magic. Don't hesitate to insert Gallinari in your starting lineup as usual.
Jan 17 - 2:04 PM

Danilo Gallinari (left ankle soreness) will start Monday vs. the Magic.

He's been playing through the sore ankle over the past few games, and his production has been fine, so owners shouldn't hesitate to get him active for a matchup against the third-worst team in the league at defending the small forward position.
Jan 16 - 4:36 PM

Danilo Gallinari (left ankle soreness) is probable to play Monday vs. the Magic.

Gallinari has been dealing with some ankle soreness over the past few games, but the issue hasn't actually forced him to miss any time, so he should be fine for Monday night. Owners can expect to get another update following Monday morning's shootaround.
Jan 15 - 3:01 PM

Danilo Gallinari scored 18 points in 30 minutes against the Pacers on Thursday, adding two rebounds, three assists and four 3-pointers.

He made 7-of-11 from the field, didn't go to the line and only turned it over once, so scoring 18 on just 12 possessions is very impressive. Not going to the line today has been a recent trend with each of his last five games all being below his season average of 6.0 attempts per game. Gallinari could be on the trade block and finds himself in a good spot with the Nuggets, so he can be considered a sell-high player. He was questionable with ankle soreness today, but obviously it didn't bother him -- he even dunked an alley-oop today.

Danilo Gallinari (ankle) will play against the Pacers on Thursday.

He ia only dealing with ankle soreness and is off for the rest of the week, so Gallinari shouldn't be limited as long as there isn't a set back. Coach Mike Malone continues to play Gallo a ton with 35 minutes coming on Saturday. He's a sell-high candidate.
Jan 12 - 2:33 PM

Danilo Gallinari (ankle soreness) is expected to play on Thursday vs. the Pacers.

This is the only game of the week for the Nuggets, so there was some concern that he was going to be held out as a precaution. With a couple players on the injury report with an illness including Wilson Chandler, Gallinari should see his normal workload Thursday. We'll confirm that he's in the starting lineup.
Jan 12 - 10:25 AM

Danilo Gallinari (ankle soreness) is being listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Pacers in London.

Gallinari may have some added incentive to play on the main stage in London, and with his injury simply being ankle soreness, he may just gut it out. It is, however, worth noting that a serious right ankle injury prematurely ended Gallinari's 2015-16 campaign, although this is the first time this season that we're hearing of any ankle issues, and it's currently unclear which ankle is the sore one. We should have a better idea on Gallinari's status following Thursday morning's shootaround.
Jan 11 - 9:39 AM

Danilo Gallinari scored 15 points with seven rebounds, one steal and no turnovers in 35 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

There was a new wrinkle for the Nuggets with Gallinari actually getting some shooting guard minutes because of some early Will Barton foul trouble. The Rooster is also reportedly on the trade block, according to ESPN's Marc Stein. He's in a pretty good spot for his value, so a trade could hurt his fantasy upside.
