Two months of knee rehab with the Nuggets has brought some clarity to forward Danilo Gallinari about the time it's actually going to take to get back on the court.

It won't be next week, as he'd hoped - and said prior to the start of training camp - it would be. In fact, he does not know when it will be. He is officially out of the prediction and timetable business. What he does know is he is very far away from even thinking about a return.

He talked about it all in an interview with the Denver Post.

"Ahead of me I have a lot of things to do - running on the court, being able to do cutting and everything that you do on the court, and be able to play," Gallinari said. "So a lot of stuff. What we are doing now, we are able to run on the AlterG, this anti-gravity machine. We're able to do that and other stuff in the weight room."

And that's about it.

Gallinari doesn't have a date for when he'll begin on-court running. For those expecting a quick return from the Nuggets second-leading scorer last season, patience will be needed. Gallinari admitted he was a bit overzealous with his initial time frame for returning.
