What initially looked like good luck for injured Boston Celtics veteran forward Danilo Gallinari turned out to be very much less so when the Celtics revealed that Gallo had, in fact, torn the same ACL he had in 2014. With a typical recovery time of at least six months and sometimes as many as 12, it is clear that Boston will need an answer for what the Italian swingman was hoped to bring to the team in 2022-23.
What can the Celtics do after Gallinari’s injury — sustained last month while playing for the Italian National Team in FIBA qualifying play — has removed his availability for at least the entirety of the regular season to come?
The hosts of the CLNS Media “Garden Report” podcast got together for an emergency pod to discuss the range of options.
Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear what they had to say about the course they think Boston should take.
