The Denver Nuggets report that forward Danilo Gallinari has fractured his toe and will miss at least a week. Posted by Ben Golliver. danilo-gallinari-den

When the New York Knicks traded for Nuggets All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony, one of the big questions we raised was how forward Danilo Gallinari would adapt to live in Denver. 

After a slow start in limited minutes in his debut for the Nuggets on Thursday, Gallinari exploded for 30 points against the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday, and nearly hit what would have been a game-winning three-pointer.

That positive momentum took a sidestep on Monday night, when the Nuggets announced that Gallinari had fractured his toe and will miss at least a week.

The news came as an update to a previous report which said he suffered a "sprained toe" when stubbing his foot against the Blazers. The injury forced him to miss Monday's game against the Atlanta Hawks.

Even without Gallinari, the new-look Nuggets defeated the Hawks, 100-90, on Monday night. 

On the season, Gallinari is averaging 15.9 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 34.6 minutes per game.

Nuggets F Gallinari fractures toe, out 7-10 days

I hope he recovers soon. This team does not have much time to gel before the playoffs start. Those last 4 spots in the Western Conference are going to be hard fought to achieve. Get well big man, Nuggets fans are eager to see what you can do.

Nuggets F Gallinari fractures toe, out 7-10 days

He broke his toe, his big toe, and is only figuring to miss 7-10 days?  A week after breaking one of my toes, I sure wasn't ready to run out on a basketball court for 30-40 minutes.  They must have some great pain killers,
