Gallinari Not Back From Injury

Two months after sustaining the initial injury, Danilo Gallinari’s back is still feeling a bit al dente. As a result, the Knicks’ prized Italian rookie remains sidelined less than two weeks before the opening of training camp.

Yet there are no indications that Gallinari, the sixth overall pick in the 2008 draft, won’t be ready for the start of camp Sept. 30 in Saratoga Springs. A team spokesman would say only that Gallinari’s injury “is not a serious concern” and the Knicks are “being careful” with the 20-year-old forward.
