Gallinari out at least four weeks

As is being reported by Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post, Nuggets’ star forward Danilo Gallinari will be out for close to one month with a chip fracture in his foot. According to the doctors, the actual chip has likely been lodged in Gallinari’s foot sine before he started playing professional basketball. Coach George Karl is quoted as saying Corey Brewer should expect an expanded role while even Julyan Stone and Jordan Hamilton could be in for a few surprise minutes as well. Let’s hope this experimentation with the bench is something that comes to fruition as the Nuggets have one of the deeper ones in the entire league, which should certainly help out in injury-plagued times like these.

    You know GK says some very insightful things and then he goes and says something that makes you scratch your head. For example “I actually thought about playing Jordan Hamilton last night for the 3-ball. Jordan can make a 3. We weren’t going to make one last night.” I guess we always are going to get the good with the bad from Karl.

      Hamilton is a damn talented rookie! But George Karl doesn’t want to play rookies, no matter who talented they are. When Ty Law was a rookie, he steadily became better not because of coach but because of Billups. Carmelo, when he’s a Nugget, got better because a not-Karl coach played him. Our history of rookies who became best Nuggets was never because of George Karl but because of someone else. Fire that anti-rookie coach now!
