Nuggets' Danilo Gallinari is a "game-time decision" for season opener
His limp has improved into an actual, normal walk.
"Now," Danilo Gallinari said, "we'll have to see if I can run."
The Nuggets' starting small forward, battling a left ankle injury, said he's a "game-time decision" for Wednesday's season opener at Philadelphia.
"It's better than yesterday, but it's a sprained ankle, so we'll see how it goes tomorrow in shootaround," Gallinari said Tuesday before leaving for Philly.
If Gallo doesn't play, coach George Karl said: "Corey (Brewer) would move up a slot. I don't know if he'd start, but he'd get some of the minutes that Gallo would have gotten. Wilson (Chandler) will get some minutes. Maybe (Evan) Fournier and Jordan (Hamilton)."
Gallinari has had some good games in the preseason for Denver, averaging 15.3 points, four rebounds and three assists per game.
