Danilo Gallinari has missed every game so far this season as he is rehabbing from a torn ACL. It appears however, that the big man could be out for the rest of the season. While he has not had a time-able yet, he was expected to back around March or even April. The news is not good at all for Nuggets fans since a presence down low has been lacking. ACL injuries are tough to come back from, and the big man had this to say about his recovery.
I got over the most boring part, by now. The muscle tone is back, in the gym I lift weights I never lifted before. I work with the ball and changes of direction. Let’s say I still have to work on the mental part, the most important one. Because it’s inevitable to think about my knee – Said Gallo, who added – I haven’t set a date for the comeback. It’s a decision we will take further on. Hypothesis to miss this season? Everything can happen. It’s an idea that passed through my mind. But then, maybe, I get back before.”
