Knicks Gallinari Done For Season?
While I’m thinking that there were not many of you banking on a successful season from rookie Danilo Gallinari, I couldn’t help but point out another great draft by the New York Knicks.
Bothered by a bulging disc in his back, Gallinari has had an MRI and things are not looking good.
“His back just flared up again,” Coach Mike D’Antoni said. “He was making progress, and then one morning he said he couldn’t put his pants on.”
Test results were not immediately available. Team officials are hopeful that Gallinari can avoid surgery, but they cannot rule it out.
Now given that Gallinari would be wearing warm-ups for most of the game, the ability to put pants on is pretty vital. Wilson Chandler, Quentin Richardson and David Lee benefit the most from this news. I’d like to include Jared Jeffries here, but he’s Jared Jeffries.
And here is where I remind Knicks fans that Eric Gordon, D.J. Augustin, and Jerryd Bayless were all available with the sixth overall selection.
