Gallinari tore the same ligament in 2013. The Celtics didn't provide a timeline for his return, but such injuries typically involve a recovery process of up to a year - meaning it would be unlikely for Gallinari to play this season.
Analysis: The Celtics signed Gallinari to a two-year, $13 million contract in July. He averaged 11.7 points and 4.7 rebounds for Atlanta last season. Gallinari is averaging 15.6 points and 4.8 rebounds over 13 NBA seasons.
