cannot believe it took 4 months for him to get his ACL surgery but thankfully the guys in Vail know what they are doing. we need gallo back strong and from what we've seen in the league, there are no guarantees he will play next year and if he does, i doubt he's really back until the playoffs. Watching Shumps, it took him a while and you could finally see how comfortable he was getting at the end of the year. We are in with Gallo for the long haul. He is turning 25 in august, i expect he will be quite the shooter when he comes back. In the meantime Wilson is a better 2 way player and a more balanced scorer. We can showcase him as a starter for this year, he should average Gallo + numbers, then we flip him next year for a major piece (a center hopefully)
"Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari could return by December as opposed to February, a league source told The Denver Post.
Gallinari, who underwent knee surgery at the end of the season, had been projected by the Nuggets to miss half of the 2013-14 season. But Gallo posted a video on his official Facebook page Friday in Italian, and in the video Gallo said his left ACL wasn't torn and his recovery time will be "completely different" than previously reported, according to the Italian journalist Davide Chinellato."
