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.”
