Asked about his level of frustration with the non-call, Gallinari simply grinned and said, “I’ll let the people watch the replay and make their own judgment.” Shaw, however, steamed. “It’s frustrating when night-in and night-out all of those kind of calls go against us,” he said. “And the explanation of i changes all the time, when we get an explanation. Or they admit that they made a mistake after the fact when it’s already cost us a game.” Denver Post

Danilo Gallinari says he is close to playing again, aiming for a return in Friday's home game against Boston. The veteran forward has missed 13 games because of torn meniscus in his right knee; he hasn't played since before Christmas. But he has made progress and is the next player on track to return to the Nuggets' lineup. Denver Post

That’s why Randy Foye’s return on Saturday night after missing 26 straight games with a quad injury was the perfect time for one of the oldest tricks in NBA players’ books: The Fake Substitution. Randy, you have the floor. “Gallo said ‘Randy! Coach called you.’ So I took off running,” Foye said, a grin rising on his face. “Then coach looked at me when I ran up. He was like ‘What are you doing?’ I said, ‘You didn’t call me?’ And then I ran back to the bench and I looked and everybody was in tears (laughing).” Classic. “They got me,” Foye said. “I’m usually the prankster on the team."

According to general manager Tim Connelly, the Nuggets could see the return of two significant players — center JaVale McGee and forward Danilo Gallinari — in the next week. McGee has missed 17 consecutive games because of complications to the muscle around his surgically repaired left tibia. He's played in only one of Denver's past 23 games. Gallinari has been out since Dec. 22 because of torn meniscus. Denver Post

Danilo Gallinari's inactivity following knee surgery hasn't affected his foul shooting. Before Monday's game against Minnesota at the Target Center, the Nuggets' forward shot free throws for the first time since he had surgery Dec. 24 to repair a right meniscus tear. "I shot 50 and I made 50," said Gallinari, who has a career percentage of 84.6 from the foul line. "That's normal for me. I'm a pretty good free-throw shooter." Denver Post

The bad news keeps coming for Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari. Following his best game of the season, Gallinari was diagnosed with a meniscus tear in his right knee. He is expected to undergo surgery in the next couple of days, and there is a tentative three-week timetable for his return. Denver Post

John Schuhmann: ACL tear was left knee. This is the right. RT @JetStar31: @John Schuhmann was that same knee as previous injury? Twitter @johnschuhmann

"It's tough," Gallinari said. "It's tough. It's a situation I've never been in before. And so what I'm doing is trying to focus on what I can control. And what I can control is to come in every morning, put in my work, be ready for games, and that's all I can do." Right now, however, Gallinari's steadily declining playing time is a moot point. He's sidelined for what he estimates will be at least the next two games — Saturday at Houston and Sunday at home against the San Antonio Spurs — while he deals with bone bruises in his right knee.

The Nuggets will go into Monday's game at Cleveland without Danilo Gallinari and Nate Robinson, coach Brian Shaw said Sunday. Gallinari and Robinson are not yet cleared to play in back-to-back games. Robinson is dealing with more nicks and bruises on top of making sure his surgically repaired knee is fully healthy. "Nate and Gallo will be out for sure," Shaw said. "We'll see about J.J. (Hickson)." Denver Post
