DENVER — Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari, who tore his ACL in April, says on his Facebook page in a video (In Italian) that a second surgery revealed that his ACL isn’t actually torn and his recovery timetable has changed completely, but it didn’t give a date.
There were rumors he wouldn’t return until February of 2014.
Here is Gallinari’s Facebook post. https://www.facebook.com/danilogallinari?ref=ts&fref=ts
One website actually translated it. Here’s the link. http://www.sportando.net/eng/usa/nba/57108/danilo-gallinari-s-acl-was-not-broken-he-ll-come-back-earlier.html
Here’s that translation according to the website:
“I will give you a positive news: my ACL is not broken. It was neither repaired nor reconstructed. I had a a unique recovery after my first surgery. My ACL responded very well. I had a procedure called “healing response.” My plans and my recovery timetable change totally but I will inform you about that later.”
