Danilo Gallinari told Davide Chinellato of that his right hand is not healed yet, but he will not have surgery.
"I visited some specialists in the USA and now I will do the same in Italy," Gallinari said. "I ruled out surgery for the moment but I have to understand better how to recover." Gallinari came back for two games near the end of the season, but once the Clippers were mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, he hung it up for the season likely due to this nagging injury. His timetable remains unclear. May 10 - 11:16 AM

Danilo Gallinari (hand) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Pelicans and Wednesday's game vs. the Lakers.

The Clippers have been mathematically eliminated from the postseason, so this was easy to see coming. He's perpetually injured, and has likely added his name to even more "never again" lists this season.
Apr 8 - 7:07 PM

Danilo Gallinari (sore right hand) is out again for Saturday against the Nuggets.

The Clippers are basically out of the running for the postseason, so Gallinari could be out for the season. Montrezl Harrell and Tyrone Wallace have helped out the most.
Apr 6 - 3:29 PM

Danilo Gallinari (hand) will not play on Thursday in Utah.

He just can't seem to catch a break this year (or ever), and this will be his second straight game on the sidelines. Tyrone Wallace will be looking at another start with him out, while Tobias Harris will do the heavy lifting on offense. The Rooster getting ruled out a full 24 hours ahead of tip-off isn't a great sign, so he can be cut basically everywhere.
Apr 4 - 5:57 PM

Danilo Gallinari (sore right hand) will not play vs. the Spurs on Tuesday.

Gallinari aggravated his fractured hand during a fall on Sunday, and said afterward that it left him in "constant pain" during the game. L.A.'s most recent loss eliminated their slim playoff hopes, so it's no real surprise to see him get a DNP tonight. He's probably done for the season, but we'll consider him day-to-day until L.A. provides an update.
Apr 3 - 8:47 PM

Danilo Gallinari had seven points, six rebounds, three blocks and one assist on Sunday, going 1-of-9 from the field and 5-of-5 from the line in 32 minutes.

Gallo's minute-limit was lifted tonight but his hand was in "constant pain" after a fall in the first quarter -- that explains his 1-of-9 shooting line. There's obvious risk here given his injury history, so owners should check his status again on Monday before committing to him in weekly lineups.
Apr 1 - 6:30 PM

Danilo Gallinari (hand) will not have a minutes limit on Sunday.

Gallinari was solid through 25 minutes in his return from a lengthy layoff on Friday, finishing with 11 points, two triples, two boards, one assist, one steal, one block and two turnovers on 50.0% shooting. He should continue to improve as his minutes ramp up, and as a guy with top-30 upside, he's worth a look in most settings.
Apr 1 - 2:11 PM

Danilo Gallinari said he still has pain in his right hand.

He returned to action on Saturday, but didn't hit his first shot until the second quarter and finished with 11 points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal and a blocked shot. "Listen, he was OK," coach Doc Rivers said. "He was better in the second half. I thought his rhythm may have upset other rhythms. You never know. We need him, and we’re going to use him." The Clippers are in 9th place in the West and two losses behind the No. 8 seed (Pelicans), so expect Gallinari to play through the pain.
Apr 1 - 9:59 AM

Danilo Gallinari (hand) was able to return to the lineup Friday in Portland, posting 11 points across 25 minutes.

Gallinari made the start and was 3-of-6 from the field, including 2-of-2 from behind the 3-point line, but he had a team-worst minus-19 rating. He did chip in with two rebounds, an assist, a steal and a blocked shot, but it wasn't nearly enough for his fantasy owners. The big loser with Gallinari back was Wes Johnson, as he was limited to just six minutes off the bench.
Mar 31 - 1:33 AM

Danilo Gallinari (hand) will play vs. the Blazers on Friday night.

It's been a rough season for The Rooster with only 19 games played so far. He's been doing some running since at least Mar. 9, so maybe he won't be too limited. There's obvious risk in him going forward, but it's not a bad idea to add him for tonight to see if he can get hot. This does hurt guys like Tyrone Wallace, Wes Johnson and Montrezl Harrell.
Mar 30 - 2:23 PM

Danilo Gallinari (hand) is targeting a return on Friday vs. the Blazers, and he is listed as questionable.

"I hope to play a few minutes against Portland [Friday]," Gallinari said. "The hand is not completely healed, but we’ll see how I can help the team in the games left in the regular season. I will try to bite the bullet for the playoff race. The franchise asked me to grit my teeth and play. I will try to do that." Gallinari has been getting a lot of shots up, but coach Doc Rivers said back on Tuesday that he hasn't taken contact yet. It's safe to assume he'll have restrictions, so Gallo will be hard to trust in his first game back.

Mar 29 - 10:21 AM

Danilo Gallinari (hand) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Bucks or on Wednesday vs. the Suns.

Coach Doc Rivers said Gallinari did a lot of shooting on Monday and Tuesday, but he hasn't taken contact yet. Gallinari did say he's hoping to return on Friday vs. the Blazers, so look for an update on Thursday. Tobias Harris and Lou Williams will continue to run the show for the Clippers.
Mar 27 - 8:55 PM

Danilo Gallinari (hand) is being listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Bucks.

Gallinari was hoping that he'd be able to make it back to the court for Tuesday's game, but the Clippers may want to play it safe with that game being the first of a back-to-back set. He does appear to be on the cusp of a return, so maybe he'll be able to get back out there for Wednesday's game in Phoenix. Wes Johnson will continue to start in his absence with Austin Rivers, Tobias Harris and Lou Williams doing the heavy lifting on offense.

Danilo Gallinari (hand) will miss at least the next four games for the Clippers, but he's hopeful to return by March 27 against Milwaukee.

"I hope to do it on the court before the end of the month," Gallinari said. "The hand is better, I did the last test today: positive results, so now I can start again with the rehabilitation." That puts Gallinari on the sidelines for the remainder of this week, but if he is able to return on Tuesday, he'll be returning on a four-game week, so he might be someone to consider stashing if you've got a bye week or an open IR-spot.
Mar 20 - 6:08 PM

Danilo Gallinari (hand) will remain on the sidelines for Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves.

Gallinari recently underwent an evaluation to determine whether or not the hand injury would require surgery, but the results of that evaluation have not yet been made public. There hasn't been any positive information on Gallinari recently, so there's no incentive to stash him anywhere. His season could be over.
