Andrea Bargnani (calf) will not play against Charlotte on Saturday.
It's possible that we may not see him on the floor again this season, as the Italian simply can't get over his calf issue. If you combine his injury with his already dwindling ability to play basketball, it's safe to ignore him in all leagues. Jan 24 - 12:02 PM

Andrea Bargnani (calf) will not play on Monday vs. the Pelicans as expected.

He is easily one of the biggest disappointments in the NBA and there is no telling when he will be back on the court. Leaving Bargnani on the waiver wire is one of the easiest decisions you can possibly make.

Andrea Bargnani (calf) did not make the trip to London and will not play in Thursday's game against the Bucks.

There has been speculation that Bargnani not making the trip is evidence that the Knicks are planning on buying out the former No. 1 overall pick if they can't find a trade partner, but head coach Derek Fisher explained the absence by saying that Bargnani could get better treatment on his calf strain back home. With just two games under his belt this season, Il Mago can safely be left on waivers.

The Knicks have put Andrea Bargnani on the trade block, sources told ESPN New York.

The Knicks are also looking to deal Jose Calderon, but that was previously reported. Bargnani is an expiring contract, but his value has torpedoed since arriving in New York. If no deal materializes, the Knicks could give Bargnani the Josh Smith treatment next month. Stay tuned.

Andrea Bargnani (calf) will not play in Saturday's game vs. the Hornets.

Head coach Derek Fisher is not even sure that Bargnani will be able to practice next week so his status for Thursday's game against the Bucks is questionable at best. However, Bargnani has a lot of work to do before we can recommend an add in almost any league. Leave him on the wire with confidence.
Jan 10 - 11:15 AM

Andrea Bargnani (calf) will not play against the Rockets on Thursday.

Cole Aldrich will start at center tonight with both Amare Stoudemire (knee) and Bargnani unavailable. Bargnani should not be owned in any league.
Jan 8 - 6:51 PM

Andrea Bargnani (calf) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Wizards.

Head coach Derek Fisher said that Bargnani and Amare Stoudemire (knee) will likey be out for the rest of the week, and added that he is hopeful they will be able to play in London on January 15. Regardless, Bargnani is not an option in almost any league until further notice. Cole Aldrich, Jason Smith and Quincy Acy will continue to fill the void for the Knicks.

Andrea Bargnani (calf) will not play against the Grizzlies on Monday.

He suffered another calf strain on Friday and it sounds like he's going to be out for at least a few games. The Knicks are paying Bargnani over $10 million this season and may have a countdown at their front office for when he's off their books this summer.
Jan 5 - 5:06 PM

Andrea Bargnani (calf) is traveling with the Knicks on their road trip.

Bargnani needed exactly two games to aggravate his calf injury. The fact that he's traveling on a two-game trip is a good sign, but it's not an indication that he'll play. New York could really use Bargs with all of their injuries, and that perfectly sums up the state of the 5-31 Knicks at this moment.
Jan 5 - 9:53 AM

Andrea Bargnani (calf) will not suit up for Sunday's game against the Bucks.

Unless your league awards points for headaches caused by disappointing players, you can go ahead and leave Bargnani on the wire. He's only managed to play in two games this season, and the numbers have been uninspiring.
Jan 4 - 6:07 PM

Andrea Bargnani (calf) is doubtful for Sunday against the Bucks.

He lasted two minutes in Friday's game and clearly his calf is still an issue for him moving forward. Unless you believe in miracles, Bargnani shouldn't be owned in just about any league.
Jan 3 - 1:19 PM

Andrea Bargnani has a sore right calf and is doubtful to return to Friday's game.

Bargnani lasted two minutes before leaving the game and he simply can't stay on the floor. He can be ignored in all formats.
Jan 2 - 8:06 PM

Andrea Bargnani (calf) said he is still shaking off some rust after playing 20 minutes in his first action of the regular season on Wednesday.

Il Mago scored nine points to go along with four rebounds and two assists in Wednesday's loss, but still has some work to do. "Twelve months is a long time to be out," Bargnani said. "I have to keep working hard to get in a new rhythm. It won’t take long. But I’m not in a great rhythm." Bargnani has some fantasy potential playing in the Kincks' depleted frontcourt, but he's more of a deep league add while he plays his way back into game shape.
Jan 1 - 10:40 AM

Andrea Bargnani played 20 minutes in his season debut against the Clippers on Wednesday with nine points, four rebounds, two assists and no turnovers.

He saw some action in garbage time, but did check in during the first quarter. Bargnani made 4-of-11 from the field while failing to get a single shot inside of the restricted area. He admitted pre-game that he's not 100 percent, so chances are he'll wind up missing time at some point. Il Mago is not a great add in most fantasy leagues.

Andrea Bargnani is officially active for Wednesday against the Clippers.

The day has finally come. For the optimists out there, the Knicks have not lost any games this season with Andrea Bargnani in the lineup. However, Il Mago has disappeared about as much as his nickname suggests and it's going to be fun to see how he looks tonight. We don't have high hopes for him in fantasy.
