KUSA - Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari will not play this season after undergoing another surgery Tuesday on his left knee. 

Gallinari injured his left knee April 4 against Dallas. He had surgery a few weeks after to repair the meniscus, but later needed a second surgery in June on his ACL. 

He was looking to return this season but struggled during rehab and had to have a third surgery Tuesday morning.

"It was recently determined that the procedure that Danilo underwent on his knee this past summer was insufficient," Nuggets General Manager and Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Tim Connelly said.
