Denver Nuggets’ Danilo Gallinari has ‘no idea’ when he will return


It’s been a long road to recovery for Denver Nuggets small forward Danilo Gallinari, who is still nursing a torn ACL which he suffered during the 2012 season.

Gallinari’s return date has been estimated to be any time between right now and Feburary, though the sharpshooter admits he has ‘no idea’ when he’ll be able to return to the court, suggesting the entire process if frustrating:

At the moment, Gallinari has “no idea” when he will return to the court as he recovers from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

The Italian forward is limited to rehabbing in the weight room from the injury he sustained in April. He said that while he does occasionally shoot free throws, he hasn’t really been able to run the floor.

Frustrating?

“A little bit,” Gallinari said. “You always are frustrated a little bit when you can’t play.”

Understandably so.

That said – it’s not as if Gallinari is late on his return as he never had a true return date, just an extremely open estimate on when he possibly could return.

Some have said that Gallinari may miss the entire season, though that seems unlikely as of right now.

Gallo has been sidelined since April 4th.
