Maybe it’s just the way the release is worded, but the immediate future does not sound bright for Danilo Gallinari.
The prescription for a cranky back is fairly vague.
“Danilo was examined by two specialists (Thursday). Both were in agreement that Danilo should receive another cortisone shot, which he received in the afternoon. He will now have an extended period of rest, and over the next few weeks, will receive additional opinions on his long-term management options.”
It doesn’t sound like surgery has been ruled out.
Basically, we shouldn’t be expecting Gallinari to get many votes for Rookie of the Year. Rule him out for a moment. Zach Randolph is putting up incredible numbers so far, and his trade value is rising. There will be offers made in the coming months.
Do you trade him knowing it might knock the Knicks out of the playoffs, but improve their future?
And just so everybody knows, I’m still covering the Giants, but haven’t missed a minute of the Knicks this season. My DVR is getting a workout. If you miss me like Mase, you can check out a live chat I’m doing at noon. The URL is www.LoHud.com/giantsjournallive.
