Danilo Gallinari's rehabilitation for a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee is going as planned, and the versatile Nuggets forward is on pace to be ready for the team's training camp in the fall.

Gallinari is currently in Rome for the NBA's Basketball Without Borders program and plans to travel to Milan later this week for the remainder of the month. In early July, he will hold an annual basketball camp near Venice.

Before Gallinari left for Italy last week he was cleared to begin individual on-court workouts and he jumped at the chance to get them done, working with Nuggets assistant Melvin Hunt.

"Everything is going very well," Gallinari said by phone. "I was able to play with the basketball, finally, like I wanted to my last week in Denver. I was glad that (Nuggets strength coach) Steve (Hess) gave me a little fun in the rehab for the last week."

The plan is for Gallinari to not push too hard during the summer, though he does plan to practice some with the Italian national team. He will ramp up the intensity with five-on-five, full-court games in late August or early September, when he returns to Denver and plays in pickup games at the Pepsi Center.
