Danilo Gallinari to Get Only Garbage Minutes

How do you say garbage time in Italian?

Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni said yesterday rookie forward Danilo Gallinari is out of the rotation for now and will only play in blowout situations until he gets "physically ready."

Despite missing all of preseason and virtually the entire summer league, Gallinari was thrown to the wolves in the first two games and looked overmatched. Gallinari missed all three of his field-goal attempts in 11 minutes and scored his only two points on free throws. Gallinari has not played in his past two games.
