For someone who’s faster than 99 percent of the general population, patience doesn’t come naturally.

Denver Nuggets guard Ty Lawson is doing his best to take things slowly.

“It’s annoying to me. I feel like being out there playing,” Lawson said after a light workout on the Pepsi Center practice court. “Being patient is not one of my strong suits.”

DENVER, April 5, 2013 – An MRI exam today revealed that Denver Nuggets F Danilo Gallinari suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his left knee during Thursday night’s game against the Dallas Mavericks.

The MRI showed no signs of other ligament or meniscus damage. He will miss the remainder of the 2012-13 season.

Gallinari, 24, averaged 16.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 71 games this season.
