Danilo Gallinari (left knee bone bruise) said he will play Friday vs. the Pacers.
Gallinari, who has missed four straight games, has clearly been inching closer to a return over the last few days. With Gallo back in the mix, the Nuggets will have their full complement of frontcourt players for the first time in quite a while. This will present a welcomed dilemma for coach Mike Malone on Friday. It will be interesting to see how Malone divvies up minutes amongst Gallinari, Wilson Chandler, Kenneth Faried, Mason Plumlee, Will Barton and Juan Hernangomez.
