Danillo Gallinari Of The Nuggets To Have Season-Ending Surgery On ACL


Shortly after suffering the knee injury in an April 4 game against the Dallas Mavericks, Danillo Gallinari of the Denver Nuggets had surgery to repair a torn meniscus but the ACL reconstruction was delayed.

There had been a belief on the doctor’s part that the ACL could be strengthened to play again without the traditional procedure, but that never happened, sources said.

Gallinari should be back early next season, according to Adrian Wojnarowki of Yahoo Sports.
