Hey bro. How long did it take? 

Gallo is perfect as a Boogie replacement, minus the FG, pts, reb, assists, steals, blocks and beast mode-ness.

reminder, he ain't the one

Doc said last night about Gallo: "...he was on the floor tonight. He's getting closer."

 

 

I've held on to him this long so I suppose I'll ride it out but I'm not even sure how much upside he has anymore. There are actually becoming quite a few mouths to feed for the Clippers, especially because guys like Tyrone Wallace have stepped up while Gallo has been out for 3 months with a hurt butt.

lmao when Gallo comes back Tyrone Wallace will be sitting his a** back down on the bench.

I agree with you and don’t think there’s any doubt that Wallace will be going back to the bench. I do think he will still get minutes in the rotation though and also don’t think that Gallo has really been much better than him.

 

In 31 minutes Gallo has been averaging 13.4/ 4.4 / 2.5 while Wallace in 32 minutes has been averaging 11.8/ 3.8/ 2.1. Pretty comparable stats that don’t even consider that Wallace is the far superior defender. 

 

Ive held Gallo through all his injuries so I’m  all in on him at this point but I am a bit skeptical of him getting the shots he needs to produce at a high level.

It's all about that playoff schedule tho. Probably don't have to tell you guys but in leagues with playoffs April 12 - May 1, Clippers are a 4-4-4. He could give you 75% of his usual value and still be a fairly solid player.

 

 

Uh... What? The NBA season ends on April 11th.

Earlier this week, Gallinari could be seen on the Clippers practice floor working out and doing drills. Head coach Doc Rivers said before the team’s last game that Gallinari was getting closer to a return, but wouldn’t disclose a timetable yet.

Gallinari spoke to ClutchPoints prior to the team’s ESPN matchup against the Celtics and said he is traveling with the team for the two-game road trip in Memphis and New Orleans, but would not play. He added that although its unlikely, a return on Tuesday back home against the Portland Trail Blazers is a possibility for the nine-year Italian forward.

I'm sure a return on Tuesday is highly unlikely for this guy.
