Gallinari Returns to Action; No Knee Soreness

With the first hurdle cleared, (Denver Nugget Danilo) Gallinari will now focus on settling into his role in Shaw’s offense. He had no soreness in his knee Saturday and said he’d be ready to play on Monday against the Bulls in Chicago. His participation will ultimately be a decision the Nuggets’ medical staff makes as they monitor his progress and look to bring him along gradually to be ready for a heavy workload when the regular season begins at month’s end. If Gallinari does play Monday, he’ll be on a similar 15-minute time limit as he was for the Phoenix game.

No matter what, Gallinari’s start was good news.

“I was feeling good,” Gallinari said. “I was trying to be aggressive in order to let it all out and to try to break the ice a little bit, have the right mentality. When you are coming back from a knee injury (you have to) be aggressive and try to not think about it too much and do the things that you’ve been working all summer on the things the coach tells us to do. I thought it was a good beginning.”

Steve Ballmer: Clippers Moving to Inglewood ‘come hell or high water’

“I love L.A. I also love my wife, by the way, but I love L.A. and I don’t want there to be any mistake about it. We want to be part of the fabric of this community,” said [Steve] Ballmer, who stepped down as Microsoft’s CEO early in 2014, shortly before he rescued the Clippers from the clutches of disgraced Donald Sterling and bought the franchise for $2 billion.

“We’re moving to Inglewood come hell or high water,” he said of a proposed arena near the site of the stadium being constructed for the Rams and Chargers. “We gotta have a house. So we’re working on a plan to get our own house. We want to get our own house. It turns out the way this works in L.A., which is much beloved to me, that if you start now you might be done in six years.” He then urged fans to contact their Assembly representative and state senator to urge approval of legislation that would accelerate the process. He probably inspired more than a few emails and phone calls.
