Here’s the Denver Post reporting on Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari:
Indications are that Gallinari will be ready for training camp. He sat out this season after needing a second ACL surgery in January. But he’s running now. And jumping. And dunking.
“It felt great just to grab that rim,” Gallinari said, smiling.
He’s not doing anything too crazy, but he’s ahead of schedule and said he will be ready when October arrives.
“It’s going very good,” he said. “The guys are trying to keep me calm, because I feel like I can do a lot of stuff. They are holding me back. Finally, I feel like I did the right thing with the right surgery.”
Gallinari was the Nuggets’ second-leading scorer in the 2012-13 season and one of their best 3-point shooters. They could have used him this season.
