Gallinari has his first of two surgeries

The Associated Press
DENVER – The Denver Nuggets said forward Danilo Gallinari underwent surgery to repair meniscus in his left knee and will have another procedure later to fix his anterior cruciate ligament.
The operation on his meniscus was performed Monday at the Steadman Clinic in Vail. He will go through rehabilitation on the knee before a date is scheduled to repair the ACL.
Gallinari was hurt April 4 against Dallas when he planted his left leg awkwardly while going in for a layup. The knee buckled, and he went down, screaming in pain.
The Nuggets have missed Gallinari in the playoffs against the Golden State Warriors. He averaged career-highs in points (16.2) and rebounds (5.2) this season. He also led the team with 135 3-pointers.
