Danilo Gallinari scored 24 points vs. the Nets on Monday with seven assists, three boards, two steals and four 3-pointers in 41 minutes.
He played a lot of stretch four tonight because of Thaddeus Young's mobility, and he was able to shoot a respectable 7-of-16 from the field. He had a rough outing vs. the Knicks on Sunday with 19 points on 4-of-13 shooting, but the Nuggets absolutely love him and he will likely be a top-50 player in fantasy leagues the rest of the way.

Danilo Gallinari cooled off vs. the Knicks, hitting 4-of-13 field goals, but he added 9-of-10 free throws to finish with 19 points, four rebounds, one assist and one steal.

Gallo was coming off a 33-point performance, a season high, and he's been a machine from the FT line lately -- in Denver's past five games he's a combined 49-of-53 from the stripe (92.5 percent). He made a pair of 3-pointers tonight, without any turnovers, and continues to return steady top-50 value in 8-cat, 9-cat and most points leagues.
Feb 7 - 4:23 PM

Danilo Gallinari scored a season-high 33 points during a 115-110 win over the Bulls on Friday with three rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

He made all 18 attempts from the line and killed the Bulls with his slow-mo style of scoring. Gallinari is the first player to take at least 18 attempts from the line and make all of them since Kobe Bryant in 2013. He was cooling off a bit before this one and only has sixth-round value in his last 10, but expect him to trend up.
Feb 6 - 1:12 AM

Danilo Gallinari scored 26 points against the Wizards on Thursday with five rebounds, six assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

He's been fantastic in his last seven, averaging 23.0 points, 4.4 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.0 treys on 46.6 percent from the field. Gallinari will put up early-round value this year as long as he's healthy.
Jan 28 - 11:26 PM

Danilo Gallinari was incredible in Saturday's win over the Pistons, dropping 30 points on 8-of-15 shooting in 38 minutes.

He hit a clutch step-back 3-pointer with less than a minute left on the clock, and he rounded out his stat line with six boards, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer. He did most of his damage at the free throw line where he connected on 13-of-16 attempts, and he had just one turnover on the night. The Rooster is cooking over his last five games with averages of 21.6 points, 4.0 boards, 1.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.0 3-pointers, but staying healthy will be the key for him down the stretch.
Jan 24 - 12:54 AM

Danilo Gallinari went off in Tuesday's loss to the Thunder, scoring 27 points with three boards, one assist, two steals and four 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

The Rooster is on fire right now. He's averaging 23.2 points, 4.4 boards, 1.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.8 3-pointers over his last five games, though he is shooting just 40.5 percent from the field. Still, he is flirting with top-50 value in that span and he has never looked healthier. Keep him locked in all lineups.
Jan 20 - 12:28 AM

Danilo Gallinari scored 23 points in 23 minutes during Sunday's high-scoring win vs. the Pacers, making 6-of-11 FGs and 10-of-10 FTs while navigating foul trouble.

Gallo was whistled for a few questionable calls and could have had a monster night if he's played his usual allotment of minutes. Owners still can't be upset as his 23 points were accompanied by one 3-pointer, four boards, two assists and two steals. Not bad for a foul-plagued evening.
Jan 17 - 11:15 PM

Danilo Gallinari made 17-of-19 free throws during Wednesday's thrilling win vs. the Warriors, adding 5-of-14 field goals to finish with a team-high 28 points.

Gallinari made a critical steal while playing one-on-one defense vs. Stephen Curry down the stretch, enabling the Nuggets to hold on for a 112-110 victory -- it's only the Warriors' third loss of the season. Gallo added five boards, two assist and one steal without any turnovers in 38 minutes, and has simply been incredible in January with averages of 26.2 points, 1.7 triples, 6.2 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 0.8 steals per game.
Jan 14 - 1:08 AM

Danilo Gallinari led all scorers with 27 points on Sunday, hitting 7-of-18 FGs and 11-of-13 FTs to lead the Nuggets past the visiting Hornets.

Gallo is averaging 25.8 points in five games since returning from a sprained left ankle, and he's the unquestioned motor of Denver's offense. He's the only Nuggets player to average more than 30 minutes and is a steady top-50 player with upside -- the only concern is whether he can stay healthy.
Jan 10 - 10:55 PM

Danilo Gallinari put forth a valiant effort during the Nuggets loss to the Grizzlies on Friday, going off for 29 points, eight boards, three assists, two 3-pointers and two turnovers in 35 minutes of action.

Gallinari shot 8-of-18 from the field and was a perfect 11-of-11 from the charity stripe, and he was the only reason this game was at all close. The Rooster's usage rate has climbed to 25.4 through the month of January to go with averages of 25.5 points, 6.5 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.8 three-pointers and just 1.0 turnover per game, which has been good enough for third-round value in standard 9-cat leagues.
Jan 9 - 12:19 AM

Danilo Gallinari scored 20 points during a 78-74 win over the Wolves on Wednesday with seven rebounds, four assists and two 3-opinters in 35 minutes.

The Nuggets wasted no time on getting Gallo going again as he's scored at least 20 points in each of his three games since returning from an ankle injury. He'll need to stay healthy, but Gallinari should be an elite player to start while he's active.
Jan 6 - 11:37 PM

Danilo Gallinari lit up the Trail Blazers for 29 efficient points during Sunday's loss in Denver, adding five rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block without any turnovers in 36 minutes.

Gallo sank 8-of-13 field goals and 11-of-16 free throws, with two of his makes coming from downtown. He's been fantastic in two games since returning from an ankle injury and should cruise toward early-round value as long as he stays healthy.
Jan 4 - 12:37 AM

Danilo Gallinari (ankle) returned from a six-game absence on Saturday vs. the Warriors, scoring 24 points on 9-of-18 shooting with six boards, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

The Nuggets will travel back home to face the Blazers on Sunday, so it will be interesting to see if Gallinari is dealing with any soreness after logging 41 minutes in the overtime loss. He looked great when he was out there, and he may have to play a lot more stretch four moving forward because Kenneth Faried suffered a potentially serious neck injury on Saturday. Gallinari belongs in all active lineups.
Jan 3 - 2:42 AM

Danillo Gallinari (ankle) will start against the Warriors on Saturday night.

It's his first game back after missing six outings. Gallinari practiced yesterday and he should be all set for his normal amount of minutes. Get him back in your lineups. Meanwhile, we'll see how this affects Will Barton and Gary Harris.
Jan 2 - 9:05 PM

Danilo Gallinari (ankle) will play against the Warriors on Saturday.

He's been out for six games and went through practice on Friday without any issues. With Gallo back, there should be less minutes for Gary Harris, Mike Miller and Kostas Papanikolaou. Will Barton should still be great, but expect his usage rate to take a hit.
