His estimated recovery time will take 40 days and he’s essentially ruled out of the EuroBasket that begins on August 31.
Gallinari sustained the injury following a punch he threw on Jito Kok of the Dutch team. The two players were involved in a fight during the game which started when Kok held the Clippers forward back way too aggressively to get a better position for a rebound. Gallinari reacted by hitting his opponent and throwing a full swing at him which was the punch that caused the injury.
Gallinari will miss the rest of Eurobasket play for Italy, but the expectation is that he’ll be ready for Clippers training camp in September. He’s expected to need a month of rest and rehabilitation. The Clippers will follow up soon with their own examination.

Danilo Gallinari is expected to return to the Nuggets lineup tonight against Miami after missing three games with a sore right thigh, Nuggets coach Michael Malone said. Gallinari followed a full practice on Tuesday with a full shootaround on Wednesday. It isn’t certain whether he’s completely out of the woods with the injury, but he’s feeling good enough to play. Gallinari warmed up prior to the Nuggets last game, at Phoenix, but couldn’t go. Still, that was a sign he was likely closing in on a return to action.
Though he continues to make good progress on a badly injured right ankle, Danilo Gallinari said he will not play another game for the Nuggets this season. “No,” he said after the team’s shootaround on Saturday morning. So, he’s done? “Yes,” he said.
He’s recovering from two torn lateral ligaments in the ankle — the anterior talofibular and calcaneofibular — and has a sprained deltoid ligament as well. Gallinari will end this season missing the final 23 games of it. “Very disappointing,” Gallinari said. “But that’s the way it is. We’re not fighting for anything right now. As a player, it’s one of the worst feelings ever because if you’re not fighting for anything it’s even tougher to find the motivation to play a game.”
He said the decision to shut it down for the rest of the season wasn’t made in effort to preserve himself for his Italian national team obligations this summer at the Olympics in Rio. “It was not in my mind, to be honest,” Gallinari said. “I’m paid a lot of money right here in Denver to play basketball and do my job. That was my focus, to get back, even if I had to play the last two games, that’s what I wanted to do. I can’t do it, so right now the focus is to get healthy and get ready for the summer.”
Interviewed by Sky Sport, Danilo Gallinari said that his season is likely over.
“Yeah, I’d say he’s weeks away,” Malone said. “That would be the best way I could phrase it without having a definitive timetable.” Gallinari has missed nine games with the injured ankle. The Nuggets are 5-4 in his absence.
Chris Dempsey: Danilo Gallinari (ankle) is ahead of schedule in his rehab according to #Nuggets coach Michael Malone said.
If, say, the Nuggets have just a handful of games remaining and Gallinari is ready to play, do they play him? Or would it be more prudent to shut him down completely? “I’ve already thought about that. I don’t have an answer,” Nuggets coach Michael Malone said. “I think it’s a very good question. At that point, depending on where we are, it’s going to depend on four games to go, what is the picture? Are we 15 games out of the playoffs? Well, it probably makes sense to play some of our younger guys and let them get minutes and see what they can do. But we’ll see.”
Gallinari may want to play. Malone said he’ll definitely consult the team’s leading scorer. “That’s something that we’ll talk to Gallo about,” Malone said. “He deserves to be part of that conversation. He’s earned that with his play this year. He’s having a career year. The amount of respect that I have for him as a man and as a player, that’s something that we’ll talk about. But we will jump off that bridge head-first when we get there.”
After tearing two ligaments in his right ankle, Denver Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari is expected to miss a month, league sources told The Vertical.
Denver Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari told La Gazzetta della Sport that he will likely miss 3-4 weeks of action.
Harrison Wind: Michael Malone on Danilo Gallinari: “He’s going to be out for a while. He compared it to his sprain earlier in the year and he said it was worse. We’re going to prepare moving forward without Gallo for the time being.”
Davide Chinellato: .@nuggets Danilo Gallinari told me he expects to remain out 3-4 weeks for his right ankle injury #NBA
Denver Nuggets leading scorer Danilo Gallinari said he expects to miss significant time after spraining his right ankle in the Nuggets’ 122-116 overtime loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Friday night. X-rays were negative, but Gallinari will undergo an MRI to determine the severity of the injury. “It’s worse than the one I had just two months ago,” said Gallinari, who sat out six games in December due to an ankle injury. “It’s worse than that one.”

After voicing his displeasure, Lillard was well aware his criticism would draw the ire of the league office and perhaps result in a fine. But he didn’t seem to care. When his postgame interview was over, he turned to CJ McCollum at the locker next to him and offered the following: “Go ahead and fine me,” he said. “I’ve got the check ready to go.”
Lillard scored 30 points, making 11 of 27 field goals, in the defeat. But despite his high volume of field goals, he attempted only three free throws, a fact that left him incredulous as he left Wells Fargo Center. “I got to the rim a lot,” Lillard said. “And I’m getting smacked in my head, smacked on my shooting hand when I’m going to the basket. Guys (are) knocking me to the ground every other play. Like hard. And (officials) know I’m trying to score. It’s impossible for me to shoot two or three free throws. It’s impossible. As much as I got to the rim and as much as they know that I’m trying to score, it’s impossible for me to get the (crap) beat out of me as often as I do.”
When asked if he felt he had earned the right to get the benefit of the doubt from officials at this stage of his career, Lillard scoffed. He said a foul is a foul, no matter who you are, and he simply wants officials to do their jobs. “I don’t want to look at it like, I’m this person or I’m that (so) you’re supposed to call these fouls,” he said. “I think a foul is a foul. I know it’s tough. They’ve got a tough job, man. But I’m not one of these guys out here trying to sell them on every call … I’m playing to score the ball. I ain’t trying to be out here hitting the ground every other play, because that’s not what I’m going out here trying to do. I’m not going to be falling out the air to get two free throws and hitting the ground the way I’m hitting the ground. I’m getting hit. I don’t want to keep doing it.”
The Sixers (10-7) scored the game’s first 16 points en route to their 101-81 decision Wednesday night at Wells Fargo Center. The Blazers (10-8) posted season lows in total points and field-goal percentage (33.7). The Sixers allowed their lowest point total this season. “I thought our offense was a C-minus,” Brown said. “I thought our defense was an A, and we are looking for two As.” But he’s still going to cherish this victory. “I thought at times our offense was sloppy,” Brown said. “But we beat the fourth-best team in the West by 20 points. I’m greedy, but I ain’t stupid.”
Westbrook led the Thunder with 34 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists. Durant finished with 21 points and five rebounds. First, Durant and Westbrook appeared to exchange some words during the second quarter of OKC and Golden State’s first meeting of this season. After Westbrook forced a turnover, he was shown on the broadcast saying something as Durant walked away and laughed. Per reporters at the game, the Thunder guard made KD laugh by shouting or shaking his head “No” at the crowd.
Late in the second quarter, Westbrook denied a post entry into Durant and the ball sailed out of bounds. Westbrook turned to the Warriors’ bench and yelled, “No!” Durant pointed at Westbrook while just smiling. Westbrook was then fouled on the other end by Draymond Green. Green didn’t like the call, and he began clapping in the vicinity of Westbrook, and the reigning MVP began clapping back at him. The two had a few words before Westbrook went to the foul line to take his shots.
Halfway in, Westbrook was guarding Durant on the right wing and he almost stole the ball, slapping it out of bounds. The two began jawing at one another and inching closer. Soon, they were forehead to forehead, talking trash. Durant was seen saying, “You’re a p—y.” Westbrook responded, “You’re soft.”
