The Denver Nuggets ended the 2013-2014 season with a 116-112 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday to finish with a 36-46 record. The Nuggets played the entire season without forward Danilo Gallinari, who had a procedure last June on a partially torn ACL and reconstructive surgery in January. The good news is Gallinari is ahead of schedule in his rehab and intends to be back by training camp.

Chris Dempsey, who covers the NBA for the Denver Post, tweeted the following on Gallinari's status.
The 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.

Gallinari was drafted by the New York Knicks in the first round in 2008.  Last season he set a career high in scoring, at 16.2 points per game, to go along with 5.2 rebounds.  In 285 career games, Gallinari is averaging 14.5 points and 4.7 rebounds per game.
