Nuggets' Danilo Gallinari: Fully recovered from ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallinari said Wednesday that he's fully recovered from the sprained right ankle that sidelined him for the Nuggets' last 23 games of the season, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports. "I'm fine," Gallinari said. "I've recovered from my sprained ankle and I'm ready. I already began training."

Prior to going down with the injury, Gallinari was in the midst of a career season and finished the campaign with averages of 19.5 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.6 three-pointers in 34.7 minutes per game. The Nuggets still appear to be in rebuilding mode heading into 2016-17, so with no major offseason additions likely on the way, Gallinari should be expected to shoulder the bulk of the scoring burden for the team once again.

Nuggets' Danilo Gallinari: Still 'weeks away' from return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Mike Malone relayed Tuesday that Danilo Gallinari (ankle) was still "weeks away" from a return, the Denver Post's Chris Dempsey reports. "Yeah, I'd say he's weeks away," Malone said. "That would be the best way I could phrase it without having a definitive timetable."

Gallinari was able to do some shooting on the court prior to both of the Denver Nuggets ' last two games, but he doesn't appear close to participating in full workouts with the team. Given Malone's lack of optimism that Gallinari would be back as soon along with the season drawing to a close on April 13 for the lottery-bound Nuggets, it seems fairly likely that we've seen the team's top star for the last time in 2015-16. He was in the midst of a career year before suffering the ligament tears in his right ankle, averaging 19.5 points while shooting 41 percent from the field and 86.8 percent from the free-throw line.

Nuggets' Danilo Gallinari: Could be shut down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Denver Nuggets are considering shutting Danilo Gallinari (ankle) down for the season, the Denver Post reports. "I've already thought about that. I don't have an answer," Nuggets coach Michael Malone said. "I think it's a very good question. At that point, depending on where we are, it's going to depend on four games to go, what is the picture? Are we 15 games out of the playoffs? Well, it probably makes sense to play some of our younger guys and let them get minutes and see what they can do. But we'll see."

The Nuggets announced earlier in the week that Gallinari suffered torn ligaments in his ankle, and the injury is expected to sideline him until late in the regular season. Considering Denver is currently out of the playoff field and now without its best player, the team will weight the value of potentially bringing Gallinari back for a week or two at the end of the season. "That's something that we'll talk to Gallo about," Malone said. "He deserves to be part of that conversation. He's earned that with his play this year. He's having a career year. The amount of respect that I have for him as a man and as a player, that's something that we'll talk about. But we will jump off that bridge head-first when we get there." Gallinari, 27, is averaging a career-best 19.5 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game while shooting 41.0 percent from the field and 36.4 percent from three.

Nuggets' Danilo Gallinari: Expected to miss one month
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gallinari is expected to miss one month after he was diagnosed Monday with two torn lateral ligaments and a medial ligament sprain in his right ankle, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.

The timetable just about aligns with the original three-to-four week recovery period that was first reported Sunday. With the season coming to an end in mid-April, it's certainly the possible that we've seen the last of Gallinari in 2015-16, as the Nuggets may not want to take any chances with getting him back on the court while the team remains out of playoff contention. Gallinari, who missed all of 2013-14 with a torn ACL, has been enjoying the best season of his career, as he's averaging 19.5 points and 5.3 rebounds over 53 appearances. JaKarr Sampson started at small forward in place of Gallinari in Monday's loss to the Grizzlies and played 30 minutes, but sixth man Will Barton figures to be the primary beneficiary of Gallinari's absence.

Nuggets' Danilo Gallinari: Expected to miss three-to-four weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Danilo Gallinari (ankle) expects to miss three-to-four weeks, Zach Mikash of Denverstiffs.com reports.

Gallinari injured his ankle playing against the Mavericks on Friday when he came down awkwardly and landed on D.J. Augustin's foot. Gallinari thought that this sprain was worse than the ankle injury that kept him sidelined for six games earlier in the season. If he returns, this timetable would set him up to be playing the last eight regular season games.
