Chris Dempsey, who covers the NBA for the Denver Post, tweeted the following on Gallinari's status.
Quickly: Danilo Gallinari not only is running & jumping, he dunked for the first time yesterday. Says he'll be ready for camp #NuggetsThe procedure Gallinari had last June addressed his meniscus, but wasn't enough to get him back on the court. With the reconstructive surgery, Gallinari had a long, tough rehabilitation ahead of him. The team is confident that he can make a full recovery and be ready for the start of the 2014-2015 season.
