Gallinari, who plans to practice some with the Italian national team and increase his intensity with full-court games late in August or early September, is pleased with his progress.
"Everything is going very well. I was able to play with the basketball, finally, like I wanted to my last week in Denver. I was glad that (Nuggets strength coach) Steve (Hess) gave me a little fun in the rehab for the last week."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.
