The Nuggets are out of playoff contention and Gallinari could be in doubt to miss Wednesday's season finale against the Warriors as well.

Gallinari is "most probably" out, according to coach Melvin Hunt, Rowan Kavner of Clippers.com reports.

Gallinari exploded for 47 points against the Mavericks on Friday, but he came back with only 14 in Sunday's win over Sacramento. On the second night of a back-to-back, it looks as though Gallinari may get the night off. If that is, indeed, the case, J.J. Hickson would likely move into the starting lineup.

Gallinari exploded for 47 points (15-23 FG, 10-10 FT, 7-12 3Pt) to go with nine rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block in 46 minutes of action.

Gallinari had perhaps the best game in his career Friday, obliterating the stat sheet throughout. His strong comeback this season has been somewhat a pleasant surprise. He's averaging a whopping 31.3 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.0 steals, 1.0 blocks, and 5.0 threes made over the last three games. That being said, he's worth owning in all leagues even though he's most likely going to slow down from his his hot streak.

Gallinari returned to the starting line-up after a one game rest and scored 27 points (9-19 FG, 7-14 3Pt, 2-4 FT) with seven rebounds, four assists and two blocks in 36 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Lakers.

Gallinari scored 20 points in his previous game and although he is a risky play as he can sit at any point, his can still produce a big performance like he did in this game.

Gallinari (rest) will not play Saturday against the Clippers.

Gallinari has been rested periodically recently, and by giving him Saturday's game off, Galo won't have to play until Wednesday, giving him lots of rest. J.J. Hickson will likely move into the starting lineup next to Kenneth Faried.

Gallinari posted 20 points, three rebounds, one assist, and two steals in 30 minutes of action Friday against the Spurs.

Gallinari has played well over the past month, and hsi production in scoring, three-pointers, and a bit of other categories makes him a strong fantasy option. Still, he's getting the occasional rest down the stretch, and with the Nuggets struggling, he may continue to sit out back-to-backs to close the year.

Gallinari scored eight points (3-14 FG, 2-9 3Pt) with three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 25 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Jazz.

Gallinari sat out the previous game to rest. He struggled mightily in this game against one of the best defensive teams in the league. Gallinari will sit the second game of back-to-backs meaning he will only play one more game this week against the Spurs on Friday.

Gallinari (rest) will return to the starting lineup Wednesday at Utah.

After injuring his shoulder last Wednesday, Gallinari received the day off Saturday for purposes of rest. He followed a 40-point performance on Mar. 22 against the Magic by recording 10.5 points (on 29 percent shooting), 4.5 rebounds, two three-pointers, 1.5 steals, 1.5 blocks, and one assist in 30 minutes per game over the next two.

Gallinari (rest) will not play Saturday against the Trail Blazers.

Gallinari injured his shoulder in Wednesday's game but then played through it Friday, so it appears this is simply the Nuggets resting Gallinari for another random game. Their next game is Wednesday against the Jazz, but with just three games on the schedule this coming week, Nuggets players (especially guys like Gallinari who are getting rested) are dubious plays for weekly leagues.

Gallinari (shoulder) posted 13 points, four rebounds, one steal, and three blocks in 28 minutes of action Friday against the Jazz.

Gallinari has made quite a resurgence in March, averaging 18.3 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.3 steals, and 2.5 three-pointers made. He'll sit out every now and then for caution, but he's still worth owning in standard leagues.
