Andrea Bargnani (hamstring) will not return to Sunday's game vs. the Pistons.
It's his left hamstring, so it's the same issue that robbed him of most of the preseason. Bargnani doesn't tend to get over injuries quickly, so he could be looking at a lengthy absence. With Bargnani sidelined, Thomas Robinson might be able to see a few extra minutes in the rotation. Nov 29 - 6:42 PM

Andrea Bargnani came off the bench to score 12 points in 21 minutes vs. the Celtics on Sunday, hitting 6-of-9 shots with three rebounds and one block.

It was Bargnani's first double-digit performance since opening night -- in between he averaged 4.4 points per game. We might not see him score 12+ points again until 2016.

Andrea Bargnani played eight minutes in Saturday's loss, but could get some more playing time if Brook Lopez (foot) misses any time going forward.

Bargnani is as risky as they come and it's unclear what Lopez's situation is at this point. In a best-case scenario, he steps into 20-25 minutes and gets you a few points, rebounds and a three or two.
Nov 8 - 7:05 AM

Andrea Bargnani bottomed out in Wednesday's road loss vs. the Hawks, scoring four points with zero rebounds, assists, steals or blocks in 10 minutes.

His hamstring is healthy, as far as we know, and Bargnani's utter lack of supporting stats is nothing new. He's off the fantasy radar while Brook Lopez is healthy.
Nov 4 - 10:44 PM

Andrea Bargnani scored five points with one rebound in 16 minutes on Friday.

This is the Bargnani we're used to nowadays. If you thought he was going to score in the teens like he did in the opener, welcome to your first season of fantasy basketball.
Oct 31 - 2:06 AM

In his return from a calf injury, Andrea Bargnani scored 17 points with seven rebounds, one steal, one block and one turnover in 22 minutes.

How long he'll stay healthy, nobody knows. The fragile veteran joins Thomas Robinson as Brooklyn's only real frontcourt depth, but he's a high-risk source of scoring with a trickle of boards and blocks. Congratulations if you gambled on him tonight -- he even scored with some efficiency, hitting 6-of-13 FGs and 5-of-5 FTs.

Andrea Bargnani (hamstring) will not have any minutes restrictions on Wednesday vs. the Bulls.

That's nice, but Bargnani will still only see minutes in the teens and fantasy owners would be wise just to look the other way.
Oct 28 - 11:53 AM

Andrea Bargnani (hamstring) was a full participant in practice on Saturday.

He has been dealing with a hamstring issue since early October, but it sounds like he is close to 100 percent. If he continues to progress well, expect to see him active vs. the Bulls on Wednesday, Bargnani is not a fantasy option.

Andrea Bargnani (left hamstring) was a full participant in Friday's light practice.

Bargnani has been battling this hamstring issue since the beginning of October, but it sounds like he is finally getting close to 100 percent. To be clear, he won't be a fantasy option while Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young are healthy.
Oct 23 - 12:17 PM

Andrea Bargnani (left hamstring) was limited in Thursday's practice.

Bargnani's status for the regular season opener is in up in the air, but it's promising to see him at least participate in parts of practice. Il Mago is one of the most injury-prone players in the league, however, and can be ignored in all but the deepest fantasy leagues.
Oct 22 - 12:53 PM

Andrea Bargnani (left hamstring) went through the non-contact portions of Wednesday's practice and he wouldn't commit to being ready for next week's opener.

Bargnani has been sidelined since the beginning of October and experienced a setback last week, but nobody should be surprised. Bargnani is as injury prone as they come and isn't worth the headaches. Ignore him in fantasy leagues.
Oct 21 - 11:48 AM

Andrea Bargnani (left hamstring) will not play on Monday vs. the Celtics.

On October 5, Bargnani said he'd be back soon from the injury and it wasn't serious. On October 19, two full weeks later, he still isn't ready to get back on the floor. Sound familiar? Let someone else deal with this headache.
Oct 19 - 10:28 AM

Andrea Bargnani (left hamstring) has suffered a setback and wasn't able to practice on Saturday.

He returned to full practice back on Tuesday, so it's a shame that he is inactive Saturday. He has less than two weeks to get healthy before the start of the season, but he did say he would be back soon. Betting on Bargnani in fantasy is never a good idea, so look the other way on draft day.
Oct 17 - 12:28 PM

Andrea Bargnani (left hamstring) was a limited participant in practice on Friday.

Bargnani went through a full practice back on Tuesday, so it sounds like he suffered a setback. In case it isn't obvious, Bargnani isn't worth the headaches and can be ignored in most fantasy leagues.
Oct 16 - 1:21 PM

Andrea Bargnani (left hamstring) will not suit up for Wednesday's preseason game against the Celtics.

Bargnani went through a full practice on Tuesday, so it's fair to wonder if he suffered a setback. The risk of drafting Bargnani is going to outweigh the potential reward in most leagues.
