How does this happen?  Don’t answer that.

The Los Angeles Clippers announced that Danilo Gallinari will out until at least January with a glute injury:

L.A. Clippers forward Danilo Gallinari will be held out of further game action while recovering from an injury of his gluteus maximus. Gallinari suffered a contusion to the left glute muscle, and subsequent imaging revealed a partial tear. Gallinari and the Clippers’ medical team will continue the rehabilitation process and intend to re-evaluate the injury in January.

Gallinari signed a 3-year deal worth $65 million during the offseason and missed time after he punched a guy during a game in Italy and has missed now 13 games due to this “glute” injury.
