Nuggets Danilo Gallinari Could Return Around Thanksgiving

Danilo Gallinari could be back around Thanksgiving.

Danilo Gallinari has been rehabbing in Italy all summer in efforts of returning as soon as possible. Progression seems to be going well and doctors speculate the forward could return around Thanksgiving.

Gallinari sounds pretty optimistic.

“I’m very happy with how things are going even if the path is still long. It ‘been a summer of hard work. Eight hours a day. You see the ball just in picture and the time never passes. But I can see the results of the hard work and according to the doctors I should be ready for the end of November.”

Denver needs Gallinari more than ever after losing Andre Iguodala and George Karl if they have playoff aspirations.
