Description: Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari has not had any trouble with his surgically-repaired knee in the preseason, but he might be a candidate to sit in back-to-back games.
Insight: Gallinari probably starts the season slowly due to limited minutes, but could be useful to fantasy owners by the end of the season.

Description: Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari looked great in his first game in a year and a half. He scored 17 points with four rebounds, one assist and made two 3-pointers in 14 minutes of action.
Insight: Gallinari shot 5-of-9 from the field and 5-for-7 from the free-throw line. He still has a lot of risk, but when on the court, he will produce fantasy numbers especially from 3-point land.

Description: Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari will not play in a preseason game on Wednesday.
Insight: Gallinari should play on Friday. His best fantasy attribute is his 3-point shooting, but it will likely take him a few months to find his rhythm since he is returning from knee surgery.

Insight: The Nuggets, the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference last season, certainly haven't been the same without him. At the moment, Denver trails Phoenix by two games for the final playoff spot in the West. Wilson Chandler has done a solid job filling in at small forward (12.8 ppg in 29 games) but his ceiling isn't as high as Gallinari's.

Description: Denver coach George Karl's prediction was wrong once again. Danilo Gallinari (thigh) won't play Wednesday.
Insight: This will be the second straight game Gallinari (16.9 ppg, 5.4 rpg) has missed. The lesson: ignore Karl when he says he expects his injured players to play.

Insight: Karl said the same thing Monday and Gallinari (16.9 ppg, 5.4 rpg) didn't play. We expect him to test the injury during warmups before the team makes a decision, but even if Gallinari plays he will probably be limited to 25-30 minutes.
