Gallinari scored 24 points (6-16 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 10-11 FT) while adding four rebounds, two steals and an assist in 35 minutes during Sunday's 105-98 loss to the Grizzlies.
He's looked good in three games since returning from a groin injury, averaging 19.7 points, 6.0 boards, 1.7 three-pointers and 1.0 steals. Staying healthy is always an issue for Gallinari -- he's played more than 59 games just once in the last five seasons -- but if he can avoid his usual strains and sprains, he should be productive down the stretch for a Nuggets squad that doesn't have many other scoring options.
Gallinari was solid overall in his first game since Feb. 1, posting double-digit scoring for the 26th consecutive contest in the process. Now that he's back at full health and remained put at the trade deadline, the
Gallinari (groin) will play in Thursday's game against the Kings, James Ham of CSN Bay Area reports.
Gallinari was the subject of many trade rumors leading up to Thursday's deadline, but doesn't appear to be headed anywhere and will remain in Denver. He suffered a groin injury back on Feb. 1 and has been out ever since, bit will now return to action after having the All-Star break to recover. As a result, Gallinari will likely draw the start at small forward, with Wilson Chandler and Will Barton getting solid minutes off the bench.
Gallinari (groin) is officially listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Kings, Adam Mares of DenverStiffs.com reports.
Gallinari was able to take part in a full practice Tuesday, so he still may be closer to a probable designation, rather than his recent listing as questionable. That said, it will be a situation to monitor and we should receive another update on his availability after the team's morning shootaround Thursday. If cleared, Gallinari should take on his usual role as the team's starting small forward, although Gallinari's name has been mentioned in trade rumors and that will also be something to watch heading into the deadline.
Gallinari (groin) took part in a full practice Tuesday and expects to be available for Thursday's game against the Kings, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports.
Gallinari missed the team's final eight games prior the All-Star break with a groin strain, but after a week off for additional treatment, it appears he's trending towards making a return. He was able to take part in a full practice Tuesday and all signs point to him being available Thursday, so he can be considered probable for that outing until further information has been provided. Gallinari's return would likely mean less minutes for guys like Wilson Chandler and Will Barton
