Denver pushed hard to make sure they got Danilo Gallinari as part of the Carmelo Anthony deal, but they’re not going to get much out of him for a week or so.

Gallinari sat out Monday night’s Nuggets win against the Hawks and will miss the next week to 10 days because of a broken toe the team announced. Before the game he was said to be out with a sprained toe but rather than go hockey playoffs with the injury report, the Nuggets came clean.

Gallinari seemed to be fitting in well, dropping 30 in his second game as a Nugget, including hitting the dagger three to win the game. The Nuggets beat the Hawks without the big Italian, but they are a much more dangerous offensive team with him.

    He’ll be nice to have back. Last night was a great game though. The Nuggets are playing defense, playing with team work. I was at the game, and at about 3 minutes left in the 4th everyone was chanting “Who needs Melo.” The Nuggets had so much electricity going thru them during this. They know they’re appreciated when we give them a standing ovation for the last 2 minutes of the game.
