Suffering Clippers Lost 9 Straight Games, Will Lose Gallinari for Another 2 Weeks due to Injury

Danilo Gallinari will be out for 10 days, so they say. 

Danillo Gallinari Injury update

Danilo Gallinari (strained left glute) said that he’ll be out for another 7-10 days.
While they gave a timetable, we all know that nothing is guaranteed including if he would be able to help turn the Clippers’ predicament right now.
Wes Johnson is stepping up for the scorer but we all know that that may not suffice at all especially as Johnson isn’t the most consistent player right now.
The Clippers is now on a 9-game losing skid and thanks to the injuries of Patrick Beverly, Milos Teodosic and Danilo Gallinari. They will probably continue to do so unless somehow, Coach Rivers finds a solution to win.

The team is feeling the absence of their former premier point guard Chris Paul and the sudden decline of the team is a proof that Chris Paul was really the main reason why they were a good team in the first place.

Celtics: The Back Up Plan to Gordon Hayward: Danilo Gallinari and Paul George

The Celtics will comeback even stronger next year, that’s for sure. 
Already the top team in the east at least in the elimination round, the Boston Celtics led the by the smallest man with the biggest heart, Isaiah Thomas made an impact to the east as they showcased the new and improved Celtics team. 
This upcoming season, expect an even better Celtics as they have won the top pick overall in the 2017 NBA draft at the same time having the salary cap luxury to sign big names in the free agency market. 
There are a lot of things they can do as  they can move puzzles left and right depending on the direction they want to take.  There are a lot of interested teams in the first pick of Boston and they can opt to trade that pick for a current big name that would make a big impact right away. This is not far from happening as the draft pool is point guard heavy and the Celtics already have two good point guards in Bradley and Isaiah Thomas. 
From the news we are getting it looks like the Celtics is looking to add an impact player in the small forward position. Names of Paul George, Gordon Hayward and now Danilo Gallinari has float around the rumor heaven.
While these are great players don’t you think Celtics should concentrate in getting a defensive player to counter LeBron James?
Whatever happens, the offseason of the Celtics will be fun and exciting!
