Danilo Gallinari to miss at least seven games with ankle injury

1 Comment

Adding to an already disappointing and injury-plagued season for the Nuggets, Danilo Gallinari suffered a sprained right ankle during Friday’s overtime loss to the Mavericks, and it looks like he’ll be out a while.

The homestand includes the Grizzlies, Lakers, Nets, Mavericks, Knicks, Suns and Wizards — not completely unwinnable games, but without Gallinari, the Nuggets will be sorely lacking in shooting. Their already-distant playoff hopes continue to fade.
