DENVER – Danilo Gallinari says he will undergo surgery to repair the ACL on his left knee next week and is hoping to be back on the court for the Denver Nuggets around February.
The Italian forward has been rehabbing in the team's weight room since an operation in late April to fix the meniscus in a knee he hurt April 4 against Dallas. He arrived Monday at Pepsi Center using crutches.
On this day, the Nuggets hosted a dozen players for a pre-draft workout, including Colorado State center Colton Iverson. The players went through drills as coach George Karl and team President Josh Kroenke watched from the bench.
Masai Ujiri later stopped by to visit. The general manager who helped construct the Nuggets roster was lured away by Toronto last week.
