With the departure of coach George Karl and Andre Iguodala, the Denver Nuggets are no longer considered the fearsome team they once were. Both their coaching and their led defensive player have left and as of now, their offensive threat will not be on the court for a while. Denver Nuggets' forward Danilo Gallinari told Sportando that he's hoping for a return around Thanksgiving.
I'm very happy with how things are going even if the path is still long. It 'been a summer of hard work. Eight hours a day. You see the ball just in picture and the time never passes. But I can see the results of the hard work and according to the doctors I should be ready for the end of November.Denver's chances of making the playoffs rely heavily on when Gallinari's return to team. Barring a player stepping up big time for the team, the longer it takes Gallinari to return, the less likely the Nuggets' chances of making the playoff's look. Last season, Gallinari averaged a career-high 16.2 points per game to go with 5.2 rebounds per game.
