In an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport, Andrea Bargnani said that he loves the Knicks and is hopeful that he will return to New York next season.
"I am happy with the Knicks. I love the city and the organization. There is an important project here" Bargnani said. "I will consider all the offers I receive from July. I want to remain in the NBA. And I will. I am at the peak of my basketball career and I want to win in the NBA." Bargnani was surprisingly decent down the stretch for the Knicks and averaged 14.8 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 29 appearances. New York obviously has big plans in free agency and the draft, so it will be interesting to see if they prioritize bringing Il Mago back. Apr 29 - 11:02 AM

Date:

Andrea Bargnani will not play on Wednesday against the Pistons.

If the Knicks somehow win this game, their fans are going to be quite displeased. Assuming no other players will rest, Jason Smith, Cole Aldrich and Quincy Acy benefit.
Apr 15 - 6:26 PM

Andrea Bargnani is not with the Knicks for Monday's game against the Hawks.

It's safe to say he's out for the season. Cole Aldrich, Jason Smith and Quincy Acy benefit.
Apr 13 - 6:06 PM

Andrea Bargnani will not play against the Magic on Saturday.

He's not on the bench for the Knicks. The team didn't update him at all, so that's usually a sign of a team just keeping him out for the foreseeable future. Cole Aldrich and Quincy Acy will start up front.
Apr 11 - 7:12 PM

Andrea Bargnani (illness) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Bucks.

Bargnani was finally playing well, but he'll have to bust out the suit collection for tonight's game. It'll be Quincy Acy in the starting unit for Bargnani, but he doesn't make for a very great play in most leagues. Langston Galloway and Tim Hardaway Jr. will see some increased opportunity on offense.

Andrea Bargnani is playing with a partially torn ligament in his left thumb, according to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News.

The Knicks haven't announced any injury and Derek Fisher wouldn't comment. Bargnani reportedly suffered the injury to his non-shooting hand last week and he'll wear a splint to protect it from aggravation. It hasn't slowed him down so far, and he scored 25 points on 8-of-15 during Sunday's victory, so fantasy owners should feel comfortable deploying him as usual. We'll let you know if he's in danger of missing any games.
Apr 8 - 6:03 PM

The Knicks are reportedly interested in bringing back Andrea Bargnani next season.

The question becomes whether Bargnani will accept an offer that will likely be close to the veteran minimum, but Knicks head coach Derek Fisher has been impressed with Il Mago. "He’s an extremely talented player and the injuries limited him reaching his ceiling,’’ Fisher said. "Whatever the future holds, the way he’s finishing the season is not only showing us, but other teams as well, he’s a very capable player at this point and trying to prove that to everyone, including us." Bargnani is averaging 17.6 points, 5.6 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.4 blocks, and 1.2 three-pointers over his last game and is surprisingly a must-start player in all fantasy leagues at this point in the season.
Apr 7 - 9:32 AM

Andrea Bargnani scored 25 points to help New York snap their nine-game losing streak on Sunday, sinking 8-of-15 field goals and 7-of-8 free throws with two 3-pointers, eight rebounds, four assists and four blocks.

We've given Bargnani plenty of grief over the years and it's only fair to point out his steady play since the All-Star break -- in 23 games he's averaging 15.9 points on 45.7 percent shooting, 0.5 threes, 4.4 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 0.9 blocks. That may be enough to earn him a payday in free agency this summer, but fantasy owners should still be extremely leery of the injury-prone big man on draft day.
Apr 5 - 10:19 PM

Andrea Bargnani hit just 1-of-9 shots for two points and one rebound in 18 minutes on Friday against the Wizards.

Bargnani isn't a safe play on any night no matter how much he has produced lately. He's a risk-reward play by definition.
Apr 3 - 11:49 PM

Andrea Bargnani hit 9-of-16 shots and two 3-pointers for 22 points, five rebounds and a block in Wednesday's loss to the Nets.

This line was similar to vintage Bargs, and he's been worth owning since returning from injury, even though he has a tendency to disappear at times. Bargnani and Langston Galloway were the only two Knicks' starters to score in double figures.
Apr 1 - 11:25 PM

Andrea Bargnani scored 14 points against the Bulls during a 111-80 loss on Saturday, adding seven rebounds and one assist in 26 minutes.

The Knicks have lost two games this week 111-80 -- the Clippers beat them by that score on Wednesday. They also set a franchise record for losses in a season with 60 tonight. Is it the NBA Draft yet?
Mar 28 - 10:52 PM

Andrea Bargnani scored a game-high 25 points against the Celtics on Friday with seven rebounds, four assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

He played a season high in minutes and matched his season high in scoring. Bargnani was starting to fade before tonight with a six-point game on Wednesday while he only had 1.0 boards per game in his last two. He should still be worth owning in standard leagues even with his inconsistency.
Mar 28 - 12:31 AM

Andrea Bargnani played just 19 minutes and hit 2-of-7 shots for six points and one rebound in Wednesday's predictably ugly loss to the Clippers.

Bargs broke a streak of 12 straight games in double figures and while he generally doesn't do much besides score 16 a night, he at least had blocked five shots in his previous three games coming in. He got into some foul trouble and the Knicks had no reason to use him with the game basically over after the first quarter. He should bounce back soon, but just don't expect him to do much besides score.
Mar 25 - 11:55 PM

Andrea Bargnani scored 16 points during Sunday's road loss, making 6-of-13 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs with three rebounds and two blocks.

The home crowd in Toronto booed Bargnani, as usual, and it must have been strange to see him healthy and productive after years of injury-shortened seasons for the Raptors. He posted a team-worst +/- rating of -20 on Sunday, but to his credit Bargnani's 16.6 PER is the highest of his nine-year NBA career. His fantasy owners shouldn't expect more than scoring with a handful of boards and blocks.
Mar 22 - 6:55 PM

Andrea Bargnani scored 14 points with four boards and no other stats against the Wolves on Thursday.

Amazingly, he was 7-of-16 from the field for the third consecutive game. Bargnani has cooled off in the fantasy world because he's not doing much else outside of scoring with some blocks. He's still a hold in standard leagues, but isn't a must-own guy if you're looking for a higher ceiling.
