Danilo Gallinari knee injury
 
Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari was forced to leave Thursday's game against the Mavericks in the second quarter, with what appeared to be a left knee injury. Gallinari suffered the injury after driving the lane, and he went down without a contact. He had to be wheeled off the floor. Yahoo.com reported after the game that preliminary tests indicate that Gallinari has a torn ACL in the knee, with a source saying that the ligament was loose. Gallinari will have an MRI Friday, and the team will give an update on the injury at that point.

Danilo Gallinari exited Thursday's matchup against the Mavericks with a major knee injury, likely a torn ACL, allowing Corey Brewer to play 35 minutes off the bench. He scored 23 points with two 3-pointers, two steals and a block. Brewer was averaging 25.8 minutes per game in the five previous contests, but he is primed for a significant uptick in minutes now, which will result in solid points, 3s and especially steals. Brewer ranks sixth in the league with 2.88 steals per 48 minutes, so with consistent starter-type minutes, he should be among the league leaders in steals from here on out. Gallinari's injury should also open up extended minutes for Wilson Chandler, who is averaging 12.0 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.8 3s, 0.6 steals and 0.6 blocks per game in his past five contests. Kenneth Faried's production could also increase if his 12 points, 19 rebounds, 2 steals and 4 blocks Thursday is any indication

Re: Danilo Gallinari knee injury
 
The Nuggets announced Friday that an MRI exam revealed that forward Danilo Gallinari suffered a torn ACL in his left knee during Thursday night’s game against the Mavericks. The MRI showed no signs of other ligament or meniscus damage. He will miss the remainder of the season. Gallinari, 24, averaged 16.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 71 games this season. “We’re extremely disappointed for Gallo. He was having a career year in scoring and rebounding and was a huge reason for our success,” Nuggets executive vice president of basketball operations Masai Ujiri said. “We will obviously support him and be there for him throughout his recovery. Knowing his work ethic and commitment to getting back on the floor, we are confident he will come back stronger than ever next season.” Surgery will be scheduled at a later date, and a prognosis for a full recovery is excellent.
