Danilo Gallinari is still not 100% healthy. He tore his ACL in 2013, and is still having issues with his rehab. Gallinari was missing for this past season, and he was a major loss for the Denver Nuggets. He has been rehabbing for some time now, and it was appearing that he was finally ready to return to the team. However, it now seems as if he will not be ready to go when training camp opens.
He recently told NBC Sports this.
“I’m not 100 percent yet. I haven’t done any contact (drills), I haven’t played any pickup games or anything like that, so that’s the goal for the summer. I’m not sure, but I think I will. We are trying to set up some goals, but in my mind it’s to be ready for training camp. It may happen, it may not, but I think it will happen.”
Gallinari is really unclear on wether or not he will be ready to return for camp. It is not the type of news that any fan wants to hear and the hope is that he ail continue to rehab and get ready. The Nuggets need Gallinari to get healthy as soon as he can. This past year the team was decimated with injuries, and the last thing they need is Danilo’s injury to continue to linger. It seems like there is a chance that he will be ready for camp but at this point is remains a huge questions.
