Andrea Bargnani (calf, hamstring, everything) will not play on Christmas against the Wizards.

The most important piece of information on Bargnani is that free agency starts on July 1, 2015. He can be left on the wire and it's certainly possible he might not play all year.
Dec 24 - 2:54 PM

Andrea Bargnani (calf) is getting closer to being cleared for practice.

Bargnani is "doing more on the court," but he still hasn't been cleared by the medical staff. Bargs also confirmed that he wants to stay in the NBA, in case anyone was interested.

Andrea Bargnani (calf, hamstring) had another strong workout during Sunday's shootaround, and Derek Fisher said he might be able to start practicing before Christmas.

The Knicks don't have much depth up front, but given Bargnani's injury history and lackluster play over the past three years, there's not a lot to like here. He can safely remain on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues.
Dec 21 - 2:26 PM

Andrea Bargnani (calf, hamstring) went through a full shooting workout before Thursday's game vs. Chicago, and Derek Fisher said he's getting close to practicing.

Until Bargnani can actually step foot on the court, he's not going to be worth owning in most leagues. The Knicks have been devastated by injuries, so he could have some opportunity upon his eventual return, but that doesn't necessarily mean much for the constantly injured and disappointing Italian.
Dec 19 - 10:54 AM

Andrea Bargnani (calf, hamstring, talent) was getting shots up before Thursday's game against the Bulls.

The Knicks are completely gutted on their roster, but they're still not going to rush him back. Their front office is probably counting down the days to get him off their books. Bargnani is not worth stashing in almost any league.
Dec 18 - 6:50 PM

Andrea Bargnani's (calf) return is a complete mystery.

"Until he practices, I can’t say what I expect,’’ Derek Fisher said. "When he’s at practices and he’s out there, that’s when it will be. It isn’t a situation where we’re counting the days. He is progressing but we saw what happened last time." Bargs has been out all year, and there is no timetable for his return.
Dec 15 - 9:49 AM

Phil Jackson said the Knicks are "so disappointed" with Andrea Bargnani's (hamstring) condition.

Jackson also added that Bargnani is disappointed, and he confirmed that the Italian is without a timetable to return. Bargs has been Barfs for the Knicks this season, and it's not clear when he might be back at this point.
Dec 8 - 12:57 PM

Andrea Bargnani will be out indefinitely after straining his calf muscle during Friday's workout.

Bargnani has been pretty awful for the past couple years, and he just can't seem to stay healthy. Until he can actually suit up for a game, Bargnani belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.

Andrea Bargnani (strained calf, hamstring) injured himself during Friday's practice and he will not play vs. the 76ers on Saturday.

An MRI revealed the calf strain and he's still recovering from his hamstring strain, and coach Derek Fisher admitted that Bargnani "isn't at a place where you can just put him out there and not be fully concerned." Bargnani has been lousy for the past few seasons, and the Knicks have enough frontcourt depth that he's not worth a speculative pickup.
Nov 22 - 9:57 AM

Andrea Bargnani (hamstring) hasn't done "a lot" of contact in practice, according to coach Derek Fisher.

The Knicks backpedaling a bit on Bargnani suggests he might not play against the 76ers on Saturday after all. The Knicks have some major issues in their front court and teams have been destroying them, ranking last in the Eastern Conference for defensive efficiency. Obviously, Bargnani is not going to fix that. Owners in standard leagues will need to see multiple impressive games before making a move to grab him
Nov 21 - 4:36 PM

Andrea Bargnani (hamstring) was a limited participant during Friday's practice, but is still expected to make his regular-season debut Saturday vs. the 76ers.

Bargnani does have a favorable matchup vs. the Sixers, but he's likely going to be eased into the rotation upon his return, limiting his value to deep leagues. His next injury is just right around the corner, so owners shouldn't be too excited to add the former No. 1 overall pick. Owners in standard leagues can use a wait-and-see approach.
Nov 21 - 1:25 PM

Andrea Bargnani (hamstring) is expected to be available when the Knicks play the 76ers on Saturday.

Bargnani has finally been able to practice without any setbacks and it looks like his season debut will come against the Sixers on Saturday. He'll likely be worked into the Knicks' rotation in a limited role, however, so his fantasy value is limited to deeper leagues for the time being.
Nov 20 - 11:10 AM

Andrea Bargnani (hamstring) isn't expected to debut before Saturday after returning to practice on Monday.

Bargnani finally made it through a practice and did everything, but there's still nothing set in stone. When he does return, he'll be worked in slowly in a role that offers nothing in the short or long haul. The good news is that Bargnani felt no pain at all on Monday.
Nov 17 - 12:59 PM

Andrea Bargnani (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game, but coach Derek Fisher is hopeful that both Bargnani and Jose Calderon (calf) can resume practicing this week.

Owners in standard leagues have the luxury of waiting with this news, as Bargnani will have to prove that he can still perform at a high level, which we haven't seen in a long time. He could return in late November, making him someone to keep an eye on in deeper leagues for owners who enjoy a little risk. Calderon, on the other hand, needs to be owned in almost all leagues.
