Gallinari On Tearing ACL: I Still Want To Punch Somebody In The Face

Screen Shot 2013-04-09 at 11.02.31 AMDanilo Gallinari sat down with CBS4 in Denver to talk about his recent knee injury which resulted in a torn ACL and long upcoming recovery for the Denver Nuggets forward. Gallo says he can’t tolerate watching the replay, but recalls his ankle being stuck to the floor and his knee “just went somewhere else” on the play that ended his 2012-2013 season on April 4. After preliminary tests, Gallinari says he knew it was a serious injury because his left knee was “just dancing.”

In good spirits, the Nuggets forward says he was more angry than upset and “still wants to punch somebody in the face”, and added “I don’t know who – but I want to punch somebody and make somebody suffer.”

Gallinari hopes to be ready for next season and is right now targeting November in his mind to make a return which would give him 7 months of rehab – but then acknowledged it could take longer as he has never had experience with a serious injury. Depending on where he gets the surgery – he’s contemplating having it in Italy – he will be there to support his teammates, whether in spirit or person, and says watching the games moving forward knowing he can’t play will be “one of the hardest things ever.”
