Danilo Gallinari scored eight points with three rebounds and one 3-pointer in 14 minutes against the Grizzlies on Thursday.
The Nuggets were blown out badly, but Gallinari did play in garbage time. In fact, six of his eight points came in the last 91 seconds of the game. He is going to have a minutes restriction for maybe the rest of the season, so he can be left on the wire in most leagues. Jan 29 - 11:50 PM

Danilo Gallinari scored 11 points in 20 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday with two rebounds, two assists, one block and three 3-pointers.

He is coming around and this is the most minutes he's played since returning from his knee injury last week. Gallinari's minutes are unlikely to hit the 25-minute mark in the near future and he's a very risky player to own, so fantasy owners don't need to be too aggressive in grabbing him.

Danilo Gallinari had seven points in 15 minutes off the bench vs. Washington, while chipping in one 3-pointer, one rebound and two assists.

It's nice to see Gallo healthy and productive, but he has a long way to go before regaining the trust of fantasy owners. Leave him on the waiver wire.

Danilo Gallinari (knee) returned to action on Friday, logging 17 minutes with four points on 1-of-7 shooting and that's it.

Gallo might benefit from a trade sending Wilson Chandler out of Denver but there is way too much uncertainty about his ability to produce to stash him in most standard formats.

Danilo Gallinari (knee) will be available for Friday's game against the Celtics.

Gallo last played on December 20 before suffering a torn meniscus and will likely be eased back into action on Friday. The 26-year-old has only played 24 games over the past two seasons and will be limited to a bench role behind Wilson Chandler, so fantasy owners can feel free to leave him on the wire.
Jan 22 - 12:27 PM

Danilo Gallinari (knee) got up some shots prior to Friday's game, and said that he is targeting a return for Denver's game against Boston on Jan. 23.

Gallinari hasn't looked right for most of the season, and he's putting up some of the worst numbers since his rookie year with averages of 7.8 points and 1.1 three-pointers on 36.0 percent shooting. He's going to be playing limited minutes behind Wilson Chandler, and he's well off the standard league radar. Leave him on the wire.
Jan 16 - 7:50 PM

Danilo Gallinari (knee) is getting closer to a return, and hopes to be back on the court in two to three weeks.

"In my mind, maybe two weeks," Gallinari said. "That's what I'm thinking. But I'm not sure. Maybe it will be three weeks." While it is great to see him progressing well, the Nuggets will likely be very cautious with the Italian given his injury history so there is no need for owners in standard leagues to consider him. Wilson Chandler may see a slight reduction in minutes, but his owners shouldn't be too concerned.

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.

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.

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.
