Chris Dempsey, who covers the Nuggets for the Denver Post, tweeted the following on Gallinari's injury last night.
Danilo Gallinari has left knee soreness and will not return to this game #NuggetsGallinari is coming off a torn ACL and reconstructive surgery in January. His knee soreness is in the same knee, so there may be cause for concern. At this point there is no indication if Gallinari will miss any games. Should he be unable to play against the Suns on Friday, expect Chandler and Alonzo Gee to see the bulk of the minutes at small forward.
