Gallinari out tomorrow

Danilo GallinariAccording to Newsday’s Alan Hahn, Knicks forward Danilo Gallinari will miss tomorrow night’s Spurs vs. Knicks game.

MRI results confirmed a mild sprain suffered in Sunday’s win over the Pacers that will keep him out two-to-three-weeks.

Knicks blog Posting and Toasting says the injury means Ronny Turiaf will start and the Spurs will see more of Wilson Chandler.

So, Ronny Turiaf will start and Wilson Chandler will move to small forward. Like I said, we can expect more of Shawne Williams and/or Bill Walker. Can we expect a return to action for Anthony Randolph or some other bench bro (Timofey Mozgov? Roger Mason Jr.!?) as well? Two to three weeks is a pretty long time.

Before the injury, Gallinari was averaging 15.3 points and 4.5 rebounds per game.

The Spurs and Knicks will tipoff at 6:30 p.m. CST tomorrow in Madison Square Garden. Be sure to come back for a gameday Q&A tomorrow morning.
