Gallinari will likely be in Slovenia, but to cheer and support his teammates.
"It is impossible for me to play at Eurobasket in September. In the summer I will work on my knee and I hope to be ready for beginning of the new season" said Gallinari, as reported by Gazzetta.it. "But I will be close to coach Pianigiani and my teammates. I have been talking with all of them after the injury and If I can, I would love to be in Slovenia to cheer for the team" added Gallinari who confirmed that he has not made a decision yet on where he will have surgery.
