Andrea Bargnani (hamstring) missed practice again on Friday.

Bargnani is one of the most injury-prone players in the league and is expected to come off the bench in Brooklyn, so there is no reason to look his way in most fantasy formats. Bargnani has now been on the shelf for five straight days.

Andrea Bargnani (hamstring) will miss Thursday's preseason game vs. the Pistons.

It's hard to get excited about a guy that consistently misses major chunks of the regular-season. We wouldn't recommend drafting Bargnani in any league.

Andrea Bargnani (hamstring) missed his second consecutive day of practice on Wednesday.

While the injury isn’t believed to be serious, this is just a reminder of how often Bargnani finds himself dealing with various ailments. We'd recommend letting another owner deal with the headache of owning Il Mago on draft day.

Andrea Bargnani (right left hamstring) missed Nets practice on Tuesday.

Bargnani's injury isn't thought to be serious, but it's never a good thing to see an injury-prone player dealing with injuries before the regular season even starts. While Bargnani should see decent minutes for the Nets, his risk outweighs his reward for owners in standard fantasy leagues.
Oct 6 - 1:31 PM

Andrea Bargnani said his left hamstring tightness is not serious and that he'll be back "very soon" on Monday.

Bargnani missed Monday's preseason opener and that sound you heard was the basketball world rolling its eyes. There isn't a scenario in which we'd remove the injury-risk tag from his profile.

Andrea Bargnani (tight left hamstring) will not play in Monday's preseason game.

Lionel Hollins says he won't play until he's ready. Bargs' hamstring was so famous that it should have had its own name last season, but there is no indication this is anything more than precautionary. He's expected to play a sizable reserve role for the Nets, but Bargnani is not someone we're looking to draft in fantasy leagues.
Oct 5 - 10:57 AM

Nets head coach Lionel Hollins said that he'll be looking to give Andrea Bargnani minutes alongside Brook Lopez this upcoming season.

"Offensively, those guys are very versatile and they give a lot of problems to the defense, because both can shoot, both can pass, and both can put the ball on the floor," Hollins said. "I like those guys playing together at times." Bargnani played next to Lopez for long stretches during Friday's scrimmage, so it looks like Hollins likes what he sees in a potential Bargnani/Lopez pairing, which is a very strange sentence to write.

Andrea Bargnani scored a team-high 21 points during Italy's win over the Czech Republic on Thursday, adding three 3-pointers, two rebounds, one assist and one turnover through 25 minutes.

Bargnani has done a good job of scoring for Italy, compiling averages of 14.8 points and 1.2 three-pointers per game, but his other averages of 3.6 rebounds and 0.9 blocks illustrate his fantasy deficiencies. He'll come off the bench in Brooklyn, so it'll be tough for him to be much of a factor in most leagues.

Andrea Bargnani scored 21 points against Lithuania on Wednesday, adding five rebounds, one 3-pointer and one turnover.

He was 7-of-15 from the field, including 1-of-7 from beyond the arc. Even though he really did slow down as the game went on, Bargnani looked to be over his calf issue from the weekend. He'll be a backup big man for the Nets and is on the radar in deeper leagues. Of course, almost any owner should be able to do better.

Andrea Bargnani (calf) will play against Lithuania on Wednesday.

It's nice to see he's back on the court after a scare to his troublesome calf. We'll let you know how Il Mago performs after the game.

Andrea Bargnani (calf) is a game-time decision vs. Lithuania during the EuroBasket quarterfinals on Wednesday.

"It is up to him, how he will feel before the game" said coach Simone Pianigiani. The nature of the injury isn't quite clear but Bargnani's calf has been an issue since 2012, and the Nets would assuredly prefer that he sat out. Bargnani is averaging 12.7 points, 1.0 threes, 3.7 rebounds and 0.2 assists in six games at EuroBasket.

Andrea Bargnani suffered a calf injury during Italy's win over Israel on Sunday, and his status for Wednesday's game is currently up in the air.

"It is a calf injury. On Monday he will undergo tests to evaluate the injury," said Italy's head coach Simone Pianigiani. "We will know if he is available for the game on Wednesday. Andrea is a bit worried because he has an history of calf injuries." Bargnani only managed to play 12 minutes in Sunday's win, finishing with seven points, three rebounds, one steal and one block. Calf injuries have been a major problem for Bargnani over the years, and given how he’s usually slow to recover it's likely he won't be playing on Wednesday. This pretty much sums up why he won't be drafting in most leagues come draft day.

Andrea Bargnani left Sunday's game against Israel with an apparent calf injury and is unlikely to return.

Bargnani is as injury prone as they come, and this is concerning because his calf was a major concern last season. He is currently being evaluated by team doctors, so hopefully we will be able to provide another update shortly.
Sep 13 - 1:08 PM

Andrea Bargnani scored 17 points against Germany during a thrilling 89-82 overtime win on Wednesday, adding five rebounds and two blocks.

He was actually active on both ends and looked like a different player. Bargnani was solid on the paint on on the offensive side, but several Germans backed him down with ease on the other end. He's going to get some minutes with the Nets, but it's not worth the risk to pick him up late in most leagues.
