Danilo Gallinari underwent successful knee surgery to repair his meniscus tear in his right knee on Monday, and he is expected to be sidelined for at least three weeks.
We wish him well and we hope to see him back on the court soon. Gallinari has had some tough luck with injuries the past couple of seasons and it wouldn't be surprising to see the Nuggets opt to hold him out even longer if they continue to fall out of the playoff race. Wilson Chandler will continue to play all the minutes he can handle for the foreseeable future. Dec 24 - 9:05 AM

Danilo Gallinari (knee) will have surgery on his meniscus on Monday.

He is out indefinitely and the All-Star break seems like a fair estimation. Gallinari just can't stay on the court these days and the Nuggets might shut him down for the year. Wilson Chandler's minutes are safe while Alonzo Gee may also play more.

Danilo Gallinari was diagnosed with a meniscus tear in his right knee, and the tentative timetable is three weeks.

This is a huge blow both Gallinari and the Nuggets, as he was finally showing signs of improvement before this setback. He will need surgery, and he is expected to miss at least three weeks. However, we wouldn't be surprised if he was held out for even longer, and it looks like Wilson Chandler will have no competition for playing time in the near future.

Danilo Gallinari scored a season-high 19 points against the Pacers during a 76-93 win on Saturday with three rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer.

It's the most minutes he's played all month and it crushed his previous monthly average of 17.1 minutes. Gallinari has been shut down due to knee soreness before and that concern will always be hanging over his fantasy value. Unless you're going to cut something you're not going to terribly miss, it's tough to add the Rooster.

Danilo Gallinari returned from a three-game absence on Wednesday during a loss to the Rockets, playing 26 minutes with 16 points, two rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

It was one of his best showings of the season and he shot the ball with a lot of confidence. Gallinari's knee has flared up on him multiple times and he was only playing 13.8 minutes per game in his four games before the rest, so fantasy owners in standard leagues shouldn't consider him "back" yet. Plus, he's not looking to shoot nearly as much as he has in his career.

Danilo Gallinari (knee) will play on Wednesday vs. Houston.

The Italian has been a ghost of the player he used to be this season, and has really struggled with his knee. Wilson Chandler is locked in as the starting small forward for the Nuggets, and unless he is traded there is not a lot of playing time available. Until Gallinari strings together a few good games and stays active, he won't be worth owning in most leagues.

Updating a previous report, Danilo Gallinari (knee) will return to the lineup for Wednesday's game vs. Houston.

Gallinari is having a very disappointing season with averages of 6.7 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 1.0 three-pointer per game. He can remain on the waiver wire in standard leagues.
Dec 16 - 4:26 PM

Danilo Gallinari (knee) returned to practice on Tuesday.

He may be able to suit up for Wednesday's game vs. Houston, but has been far too inconsistent this season to warrant an add in standard leagues.
Dec 16 - 3:35 PM

Danilo Gallinari (knee) and Randy Foye (knee) will not suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Spurs.

Neither of these guys are currently worth owning in standard leagues. Wilson Chandler and Aaron Afflalo will continue to log heavy minutes with both their backups sidelined.

Danilo Gallinari (knee) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against the Rockets.

We would be surprised if he played considering his knee has been a nuisance all season. Gallinari has yet to perform up to his usual standards and we don't see him becoming relevant in standard leagues this season given how well Wilson Chandler has played.
Dec 13 - 12:18 PM

Nuggets' head coach Brian Shaw explained during a recent interview why Danilo Gallinari's playing time has been down this season.

"[Gallinari] understands that if Wilson [Chandler] wasn't playing as well as he is playing at that position, then maybe I'd let him out there and try to play through it a little bit more," said Shaw. "But Wilson is playing well, and he's not, so that's why Wilson is out there." Gallinari's numbers are way down this season, and he's shooting a career-worst 32.8 percent from the field. He's not going to get things turned around anytime soon, and belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues.

Danilo Gallinari (knee) estimated that he'll miss the next couple of games in order to rest and heal his surgically-repaired left knee.

Gallinari has been a shell of his former self this season, putting up his worst numbers since his rookie year with averages of 6.7 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 1.0 three-pointer per game. His knee is going to be an ongoing issue, and given his limited upside, he can be cut in nearly all leagues.
Dec 11 - 4:49 PM

Danilo Gallinari (knee) will sit out until his surgically-repaired knee stops hurting, according to head coach Brian Shaw.

Gallinari has some soreness in his right now and will be listed as day-to-day until the pain dissipates. "The guy was out 19 months," Shaw said. "He's still experiencing a little bit of pain. He's not back to the level he wants to be at." Gallo has until Saturday's game against the Rockets to rest his ailing knee, but even that seems like a questionable proposition at the moment. Fantasy owners can feel free to cut bait until he proves that he's healthy.

Danilo Gallinari (knee) is out against the Heat on Wednesday, and the Nuggets have listed him as day-to-day.

He is still experiencing soreness in his knee and he can't seem to catch a break. Gallinari has had a very limited role this season, and just doesn't look like the same player he used to be. Gallinari can be cut across the board, while Wilson Chandler will continue to log big minutes at small forward for the Nuggets, and should be owned in all leagues.
Dec 10 - 1:37 PM

Danilo Gallinari played six minutes against the Raptors on Monday with one rebound and one turnover.

He missed both of his shots from the field and has now gone scoreless in back-to-back games. If you were waiting for a reason to drop Gallinari, this is it. He's very unlikely to be worth owning in the next couple months.
