2021-22 Atlanta Hawks player review: Danilo Gallinari

Our 2021-22 Atlanta Hawks player review series continues with a look at the season of veteran forward Danilo Gallinari. If you quickly glanced at Danilo Gallinari’s stats over the past few seasons, you’d see a bit of a decline in the numbers. Gallinari posted his lowest PPG total (11.7) since his rookie season in 2021-22, but there’s a bit of context to that. It appeared to take the veteran a month or two to get into a rhythm this season.

The Atlanta Hawks need to figure out what to do with Danilo Gallinari

The Atlanta Hawks were eliminated by the Miami Heat in five games in their first-round playoff series. The last play of the game summed it all up where the Hawks struggled to get the ball in, finally getting it to Danilo Gallinari. He was hemmed into the corner and instead of taking the shot which may have tied the game, the defense forced him to turn the ball over.

Hawks' Danilo Gallinari: Not starting Sunday

Gallinari isn't starting Sunday's Game 4 against the Heat on Sunday, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Gallinari started in the last eight games and averaged 15.1 points and 4.5 rebounds in 30.9 minutes per game. However, he'll retreat to the bench since Clint Capela (knee) has been cleared to return to action.

Hawks' Danilo Gallinari: Goes for 17 in playoff loss

Gallinari closed with 17 points (5-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-6 FT) and five rebounds in 29 minutes during Sunday's 115-91 loss to the Heat. Gallinari ended up as the leading scorer for Atlanta, but his contributions were not enough to mount any chance of a potential late turnaround. Gallinari has now scored at least 14 points in each of his three postseason appearances -- including the Play-In Tournament -- and should remain one of Atlanta's main offensive threats ahead of Game 2 on Tuesday.

Hawks' Danilo Gallinari: Posts 26 points in finale

Gallinari amassed 26 points (9-14 FG, 6-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one block across 32 minutes during Sunday's 130-114 victory over the Rockets. Gallinari has played exceptionally well amid John Collins' (finger) absence, although there have been some scoring hiccups along the way. If Collins is able to return for the play-in game, Gallinari would face a regression in production and retreat back to the bench.

Danilo Gallinari returned to the Atlanta Hawks lineup with a bang

Veteran forward Danilo Gallinari was back in the Atlanta Hawks (42-38) starting lineup against the Washington Wizards in their 118-103 victory in the regular-season home finale. The win keeps their (very slim) chances at the seventh seed alive. To get there, they will need plenty of help from a few of their Eastern Conference brethren.

Hawks' Danilo Gallinari: Double-doubles in return

Gallinari closed with 26 points (11-19 FG, 4-7 3Pt), 10 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 39 minutes during Wednesday's 118-103 win over Washington. Gallinari drew the start in his return from a one-game absence due to left knee inflammation and played a team-high 39 minutes. The veteran forward was efficient from the field and fell one point shy of his season high. He also grabbed a team-high 10 rebounds en route to his second double-double of the campaign. Gallinari has been sidelined for four of the Hawks' past eight games due to various issues, but based on his performance Wednesday, those absences can likely be attributed to rest, as he appears to be at his best heading into postseason play.

Hawks' Danilo Gallinari: Good to go, starting Wednesday

Gallinari (knee) is available and will start Wednesday's game against the Wizards, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports. Gallinari missed Tuesday's loss to the Raptors due to inflammation in his left knee, but he'll return to the starting lineup for Wednesday's tilt with Washington. As a result, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot will shift back to a bench role. Gallinari is averaging 11.3 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 25.0 minutes per game this season.

Hawks' Danilo Gallinari: Listed questionable yet again

Gallinari (knee) is questionable for Wednesday's game against Washington, Brad Rowland of Locked On Hawks reports. A combination of several minor injuries have rendered the veteran a game-time call for the last several games, and he most recently was held out of Tuesday's loss at Toronto with swelling in his left knee. The Hawks are hoping to get Gallinari back on the second half of the back-to-back, but his status likely won't be known until close to game time.

Hawks' Danilo Gallinari: Dealing with knee inflammation

Gallinari is questionable for Tuesday's game in Toronto due to left knee inflammation, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports. Gallinari has operated off the bench in back-to-back contests following a two-game absence due to an elbow injury, but he's now dealing with a knee issue.

Hawks' Danilo Gallinari: Pops for 15 off bench

Gallinari ended with 15 points (5-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, one assist and one steal across 25 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 122-115 win over the Nets. The veteran forward led the Hawks' second unit in scoring, providing some balance to the offense that the Nets sorely lacked as only Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving scored in double digits for Brooklyn. Gallinari has missed four games since the beginning of March with various bumps and bruises, but he's been productive when on the court, averaging 13.3 points, 5.1 boards, 2.2 assists and 1.6 threes in 14 games over that stretch.
