Gallinari was hurt throwing a punch at an opponent during an exhibition game against the Netherlands.

The incident happened when the two players were lined up for a free throw. Gallinari plays for Italy, which is preparing for EuroBasket. Once Kok took a bit of a swing in return, Gallinari fired off a strong punch at the Dutch forward's face.
