Denver, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - Denver Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari underwent reconstructive surgery on the ACL in his left knee Tuesday and will miss the remainder of the season.

Gallinari had an arthroscopic procedure in the offseason, but his knee didn't heal as doctors expected and he has not appeared in a game this season.

"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.

"Danilo's knee required that he undergo reconstruction of the ACL, which was successfully completed earlier this morning. Knowing Danilo's drive and work ethic, we look forward to a full recovery and a healthy return to the court next season."

Gallinari averaged a career-high 16.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 71 games last season before suffering the injury on April 4, 2013 against the Dallas Mavericks.
