Gallinari and teammate Nate Robinson (knee) will play in Friday's preseason game at Phoenix and will be limited to 15 minutes each. Both have made good progress from their respective surgeries are on track to be ready to go for the season opener. This will be be Gallinari's first game action since tearing his ACL back in April 2013. Coach Brian Shaw has already named Gallo as the Nuggets' starting small forward, making him an intriguing pick with some upside late in drafts.

Gallinari won't participate in Wednesday's preseason game vs. the Thunder, but the plan is for him to play on Friday vs. Phoenix. Both JJ Hickson (knee) and Nate Robinson (knee) also anticipate seeing their first game action of the preseason on Friday, and all three players are expected to be ready to go when the regular season begins, according to coach Brian Shaw.

Gallinari, JaVale McGee (leg), JJ Hickson (knee), and Nate Robinson (knee) will all sit out Monday's preseason opener vs. the Lakers as they recover from their injuries. The statuses of all four players will continue to be evaluated on a day-to-day basis as they make their back from their respective surgeries. We'll continue to update their statuses accordingly, but it's presumed for now that they will all be ready for the team's season opener.

Gallinari (along with Nate Robinson, JJ Hickson, and JaVale McGee) did not participate in the Nuggets' first practice of training camp Tuesday morning. Coach Brian Shaw outlined his plan for all four with the hope that they'll be ready for the season opener. Gallinari and Robinson will participate in Tuesday evening's non-contact segment of practice, while Hickson and McGee take the day off. "The way we're kind of trying to proceed is two of them will do one practice a day, the other two will be completely off," Shaw said. "Tomorrow (Wednesday), JaVale and J.J. will do as much as they can do in one of the two practices, and Nate and Gallo will be off. And we'll monitor how they respond, if there's any swelling or anything and just try to work them slowly in, doing it that way."

Gallinari said Thursday that he's past the mental hurdles as he returns from two left knee surgeries and over a year removed from the game. He added that he's happy with how the knee has responded as he's incrementally increased his workload, that he'll be close to participating in all aspects of practice when training camp opens next week, and he anticipates being active for the Nuggets' first preseason game (October 6). "I'm not at the same level that I left basketball because I haven't played a game in a while. The more I will play games the better I will feel." Gallinari is a low-risk selection given that he can be had in the later rounds of drafts, but overall expectations for return on investment should still be kept in check, considering the nature and frequency of his injuries and his extended layoff.

Gallinari says his knee rehab is going so well that he could be on the court for the start of Nuggets training camp. He is still recovering from two surgeries on his left knee during a nine-month period that has sidelined him for more than a year, and remains more than two months away from his next rehabilitation benchmark. Gallinari says he is currently ahead of schedule and is able to run and jump without limitations. He plans to join the Italian national team for seven-to-10 days of practices in mid-August, and if he doesn't suffer any setbacks, is hopeful he'll be cleared for Day 1 of Nuggets camp with the chance to play in exhibition games. "I think training camp is realistic," Gallinari said. "It's something that we really talked about with the doctor. It's something that we really want to achieve and we believe is going to be possible." He has not played in 14 months and remains a very risky proposition heading into next season, albeit one that offers a top-50 type return. Gallo's value will ultimately hinge on how he progresses between now and October, with significant hurdles remaining that could offer setbacks and push back his timeline.
