Danilo Gallinari sat back in his chair inside Target Center, both of his feet wrapped in ice after another strong workout that was geared toward his return from a strained left glute. He missed his 13th straight game Sunday against the Minnesota Timberwolves, but after playing two-on-two Saturday with C.J. Williams, Jamil Wilson and Brice Johnson and working out Sunday, Gallinari said he hopes to play Wednesday night against the Timberwolves at Staples Center. “Maybe the next game,” Gallinari said. “I’m not rushing anything. I’m ready to go.” Gallinari will play some three-on-three perhaps Monday or Tuesday. Then he’ll see how the injury feels and proceed from there. “It’s between me and the trainer,” Gallinari said. “When everybody is on the same page, I guess I’m ready.” With Patrick Beverley (right foot surgery) out for the season, Blake Griffin out until late January (sprained left medial collateral in left knee) and Milos Teodosic (plantar fascia injury to left foot) out indefinitely, the Clippers could use the offense Gallinari can provide.
