Denver Nuggets second leading scorer, Danilo Gallinari was carted off the court Thursday night after suffering a non-contact left knee injury against the Dallas Mavericks. With 4:28 to go in the second quarter, Gallinari drove to the basket and planted his left leg in the area of defender Darren Collison, came up hobbling and was unable to make it to the locker room under his own power. Gallo will undergo an MRI on Friday.
UPDATE: Adrian Wojnarowski reporting through sources that initial exams suggest a torn ACL for Danilo Gallinari.
