05:46 PM ET 06.15 | Denver Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari could return by December after it was discovered his ACL injury isn't a tear. Though the Italian sharpshooter still needs months to recover from the injury, which required season-ending surgery this spring, it's a positive development. The timetable for Gallinari's injury initially set his return for sometime in February, so he was understandably happy in a video posted on Facebook discussing the news. While he went into little detail about the road ahead in terms of his recovery, having his skills on the court for an extra couple months could be a major boost to the Nuggets as they seek to maintain their place as a major force in the Western Conference. Gallinari averaged 16.2 points per game this season before the injury.

Weak organization. I expect a lottery season.

They are going to regret firing Karl. The Nuggets played hard even after his injury.

Wow. I'm glad he's no longer a Knick.
