What does a Chip Fracture entail exactly?

It'll require surgery immediately?

4 weeks?

6 weeks?

8 weeks?

Season ending injury?

Day to day?

Wow that sucks. :( And sorry, Wilson Chandler is not even 1/10 the player Gallo is. And I mean that literally.

I blame the Nuggets. What the **** is wrong with them.

Not really. Chandler is a bench player on a good team. Gallo is a legit 3rd option on a championship team.

Stats don't lie.

Your a hater...
Stats do lie because they don't show every aspect of a game. Chandler is smooth can shoot from anywhere and plays great defense.

When Chandler isn't giving you production in the way of league top 10 offensive efficiency, then maybe you'll realize the difference.

Until then, believe whatever you want.

Wow..I'm sorry you honestly believe that..first off a 10 fold would put Chandler completely out of Gallo's class and he isn't..I would argue that Chandler is the better player..as for your argument that stats don't lie, they also don't tell the entire story at all and could you please tell me what stats makes Gallo an all-star compared to Ill Will

Wow Guys...

We still carrying on about this? It clearly will never die... didn't in the Knicks forum and now they aren't even ours and we still on about it. (Chandler vs. Gallo debate is the stuff of legends)

Anyways, I hope he recovers and doesn't feel any adverse affects from the injury. It's a shame...

Gallinari has loads of talent but he is very unlucky with nagging injuries... I really hope that changes, I always enjoy watching him play even when it's not on our team.

Losing your leading scorer and a guy who was slowly becoming the face of the franchise after that nice extension. Chandler will help, but won't be that go-2-guy down the stretch like Gallo.

Damn Gallo. Looks like every one got injured on Monday. Melo, Rose, Gallo, and Billups. This season is gonna be tough for the whole league.

Chandler is a very underrated player. He plays better d than Gallo and gets to the rim better but Gallo is still a better offensive weapon. Just don't sleep on Chandler.

I'd take Chandler over Gallo any night of the week. He's more consistent, can defend anybody, and can get to the net with absolute ease.

Although I like Gallo's game, I think he is vastly overrated, especially on D. He is very streaky, and can really hurt a team when his shot isn't going in.

Wheres the update on Gallo?

And he's much better than Chandler sorry, I love Wil, but Gallo is much more efficient offensively, gets to the line 3x as much, and shoots the 3 better.

Their scoring has always been around 15-16ppg each, difference is Gallo does it on 3 FGA per game less.

Chandler is the better defender and shotblocker though, and not as streaky as Gallo.

Are you a nuggets fan?

You guys haven't seen the best of Chandler though I will say that, he's had alot of ankle problems but when he's been healthy he can put up 18, 8 & 2 and be very versatile.

The Knicks are cursed with injuries and now apparently the curse has transferred to former Knicks in Gallo and Billups.

He's not expected out the whole season, so I as a nuggets fan, isn't too concerned. Plus Wilson Chandler is going to need some playing time when he get back, and this will give Karl a little more time to work out the Danilo, Wilson Chandler dilemma on who gets more PT, and whether G.K. remove either Mozgov or maybe Afflalo off the starting line, and have Chanlder along with Gallo in the starting line up. Gallinari is expect to be out 4 weeks at least, not season ending, so I am not too concerned. Let Gallo rest and heal...The rest of this team needs to step it up while without Gallo and Chandler.

The chip was actually from an injury several years ago, so that isn't part of the injury concern. Still gonna be a month unfortunately.

Injury bug has hit the Nuggets....Nene, Lawson, even Afflalo and Mozgov. They were #2 in the west and now I expect them to be about #5 or #6 by the time Gallo gets back.

Seems like the "bug" has hit every team... brutal schedule this year.

i think just about every team has had major injury issues this year, at least out of those 5 only Gallo will miss more than a few games.

A month will suck, but really he will be hampered for a bit after coming back. I'm not a doctor by any means, but it seems to hamper someone's lateral quickness and cutting ability. He will be fine come playoff time though, and the nuggs should be able to hold a top 4 seed barring crazy trades an such.

This means more PT for Harrington, who I despise but has been playing really well for them
