More on this storyline

Bobby Manning: Danilo Gallinari spoke today at practice. Said he’s feeling better, he’s on pace with the recovery timeline, but “still a long way” from returning. He’s weeks away, at least, from 3-on-3, 4-on-4 work. Currently, goal is to improve the tests for his injured leg, then ramp up. -via Twitter @RealBobManning / March 23, 2023
