Danilo Gallinari F DEN 2 Days

Gallinari (knee) may start the season behind Wilson Chandler on the depth chart, coach Brian Shaw intimated Monday, the Denver Post's Chris Dempsey reports.

Shaw said Gallinari is going through an adjustment period and that the team already has a pretty good player in Chandler at small forward. Gallo has yet to play five-on-five as he works his way back from a knee injury, and it seems the onus will be on him to take the starting job from Chandler.

Gallinari (knee) remains on track to be ready to participate in training camp, but he has yet to play five-on-five, NBA.com reports.

Gallinari underwent surgery to reconstruct his ACL in January. He missed the entire 2013-14 season with the injury, and considering that the Nuggets had him wait until January to have surgery, there are likely going to be several physical and mental hurdles Gallinari will have to overcome in the preseason and start of the regular season. He's a risky player to hitch fantasy championship aspirations to this season and isn't worth the risk in most leagues unless he's coming at a steep discount.

Danilo Gallinari (knee) says that his knee rehab is going well, and that he hopes he will be ready by the start of training camp.

"I think training camp is realistic," Danilo said. "It's something that we really talked about with the doctor. It's something that we really want to achieve and we believe is going to be possible." Danilo added that he is ahead of schedule with regards to being able to run and jump without limitations, and he's excited to get back on the court. Danilo will join the Italian national team for seven to 10 days of practice (no games) in mid-August, and that will be his first full workouts, free of restriction in over a year.

Danilo Gallinari's (knee) rehab has been moving along as planned and it's looking "more and more like he'll definitely bet ready for training camp," according to the Denver Post.

Gallo has posted plenty of pictures of his rehab and he was even going through some rigorous work without his any sort of knee brace last month. Considering the amount of time he had off, he shouldn't have a major restrictions in minutes at the start of the season.

General manager Tim Connelly said Danilo Gallinari (knee) "looks great."

"If there was any silver lining in the atypical fashion in which we had his knee addressed is both legs are stronger than ever and is much farther along in his rehab than he would have been without his setback last season," Connelly said. "He'll be 100 percent in training camp." Gallinari didn't play at all this past season and he has already been moving without restriction.

Danilo Gallinari (knee) is moving without restriction four months removed from ACL surgery.

"I'm doing vey well," Gallinari said. "I'm able to go back to Italy and do everything I want. I can play a little basketball and come back ready for training camp." He tore his left ACL in April 2013 and missed the entire 2013-2014 season. Before injuring his knee, Galo posted averages of 16.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists. If he can regain close to his pre-injury 2013 form, he will have huge fantasy value heading into next season.
