Gallinari was a big acquisition by the Clippers, who took a chance on him over the offseason despite his injury history. So far, he continues to be plagued by injuries. He missed 13 games due to an injury to his glute before returning to play two games earlier this month. But then he injured his other glute and has now missed six games in a row.
Gallinari has played in just 11 games this season.
