Gallinari started and scored 10 points (3-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding five rebounds, two assists, and four steals in 36 minutes against the Bucks Friday.If Gallinari can stay healthy and hold on to this new starting role - both significant "ifs" - he could become one of the trade deadline's most unexpected winners. In past seasons, Gallinari has been an across the board producer, but also a major health risk. Aaron Afflalo's departure leaves behind a major hole in the Nuggets' rotation, and Gallinari is being offered the first opportunity to try to fill it.

Gallinari will start at shooting guard Friday against the Bucks, the Denver Post reports.Gallinari will be the beneficiary of a move that sent both Arron Afflalo and JaVale McGee out of town. Coach Brian Shaw indicated he wants to go with a bigger starting lineup, and that includes Gillinari as the starting shooting guard. The 6-foot-10 Gallinari has averaged just 19 minutes this season, but averaged over 30 in each of the past five seasons, and could see that amount of playing time moving forward if he performs on the court.

He's beginning to round into form after his latest knee issue, averaging 11.8 points, 2.7 boards and 1.7 threes over his last six games in just 19.5 minutes a night. Should the Wilson Chandler trade rumors pan out, Gallinari would become an immediate waiver wire pickup in a lot of fantasy leagues.

Gallinari played in a second straight game Sunday, putting up seven points (1-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), one rebound, and two assists in 15 minutes off the bench.

Gallinari is returning from a meniscus tear, though few details were ever offered regarding the injury. Given the persistent knee issues Gallinari has dealt with over the last three seasons, it's hard to recommend adding him at this time, but he should be on all watch lists in case he rediscovers his health and jump shot at some point this season.

He's participated in only 24 gamest his season and is averaging just 7.8 points on 36.0 percent shooting in 18.8 minutes - his fewest minutes since 2008-09. He'll likely be brought along slowly, and given his struggles this season, he should be avoided until he proves healthy enough to contribute on a nightly basis.
