According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Luigi Datome and Danilo Gallinari are expected to be ready for the Basketball World Cup.

Datome was dealing with a knee injury, while Gallinari underwent appendectomy in early August.

Both players have progressed significantly and will be medically cleared to play for Italy in the World Cup.

Datome will return to action next week (he has already joined the training sessions), while Gallinari has been training individually and will join his teammates prior to the start of the World Cup.
