Last season, getting hurt, well, hurt Danilo Gallinari’s growth as a player. Now he’s injured again, although it might not be serious. Gallo has a left ankle injury and is day-to-day, heading into Wednesday’s season opener at Philadelphia.
“I don’t know what exactly happened,” Nuggets coach George Karl said. “I know he took himself out of practice.”
Gallinari has had some good games in the preseason for Denver, averaging 15.3 points per game, four rebounds and three assists.
Also, Karl said that reserve forward Wilson Chandler, recovering from hip surgery, will be able to play against the 76ers, but Chandler won’t play in both games of back-to-backs early this season. Denver’s second and third games this season are back-to-back – at Orlando on Friday and at Miami on Saturday.
