One of the biggest honors for an athlete is to be able to play for their home country. There’s no better feeling than donning the colors of your flag as you play for international glory. Unfortunately for Boston Celtics forward Danilo Gallinari, his journey with Team Italy needs to come to an end.

During one of Italy’s games in the FIBA World Cup qualifiers, Gallinari went down with an apparent non-contact injury. The fall scared both Celtics fans and Italians tuning into the game. Thankfully, test results showed that Gallinari avoided the worst possible outcome. However, his meniscus tear will force him to miss the rest of Italy’s European campaign.
