According to Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post. Danilo Gallinari is setting a possible return to the Nuggets lineup as of this Monday (April 9th). Apparently Gallo is still experiencing pain when catching the ball, and is afraid of re-injuring his thumb. Yet, he understands his importance to the team and wants to return asap. If he manages to play through the pain of a fractured thumb that would be quite the feat.

How the Nuggets will work him in remains to be seen. With Wilson Chandler injuring his groin, and other players under-performing (Corey Brewer) the Nuggets desperately need Gallo to return to at least some form. The luck is, it’s his off-hand.
