The recent season-ending injury of Danilo Gallinari dealt a major blow to Italy's EuroBasket 2013 hopes, but Simone Pianigiani's new-look squad does not depend exclusively on the Denver Nuggets forward.
Danilo Gallinari has put to rest rumours that circulated over the weekend suggesting there was a possibility for him to recover in time to play for Italy at EuroBasket 2013.
An MRI scan on Friday has confirmed Italy´s worst fears on Danilo Gallinari, who was wheeled off the court on Thursday, after suffering an injury during a Denver Nuggets game against the Dallas Mavericks.
Italy and the Denver Nuggets are facing a long, nervous wait on Friday as they are expecting the results of an MRI scan on Danilo Gallinari
to come out.
