    Andrea Bargnani: (Calf) Doesn't Travel With Team, Out Wednesday
    By Rotowire February 01, 2012

    Bargnani did not travel with the team to Boston and will miss their game Wednesday, the Raptors' official site reports.

    Fair enough.

    That game was followed the next day at home. It was also a few days after restraining his calf. Airplanes are not the best for promoting reduced swelling and healing.

    So, now that I have been shown wrong, Bargnani has traveled on every road game this year minus 1 in Boston.

    As Nilanka said, one of the new 'culture change' policies Casey has implemented this year is everybody traveling on road trips who are able. I read that somewhere as well, not sure where.

    You're right too much Matt. Somebody had to take you down a notch and I'm the only one with the guts to do it.

    It is a curse. Thank you. :P


    But seriously, that article (or was it on TV?) where they talked about the change from last year to this year with everyone capable traveling doing so is what was stuck in my mind.

    Default Bargnani feels no pain!

    'Flipper' to be released from captivity on Sunday?


    Ryan Wolstat ‏ @WolstatSun
    Bargnani said he is 100% pain free and can't wait to get back, likely this weekend. Said layoff was extremely frustrating
    Ryan Wolstat ‏ @WolstatSun
    My guess is he will sit Sat. After two straight practices and play at home on Sunday

    Yeah Bargnani practiced Thursday, full contact. So, I think he is close to returning. But I remember someone saying he'll be coming off the bench because he's lost conditioning and to transition back in after being out so long. IMO, start him, he'll know what to do.

    Default Let the tanking continue!

    “We’re going to see how [Bargnani] feels,” Casey said.” Whether it’s [Saturday] or Sunday, we’ll see. I don’t want to speak out and then [Saturday] night he’s not ready to go. So we’ll see: [Saturday] or Sunday, or it could even be Tuesday of next week.

    LOL

    In terms of lottery balls, this double header could be very important with games versus Detroit and Milwaukee on Saturday and Sunday.

    At what point do we say, "it's been long enough...Bargnani needs to start producing"?

    I've been trying to wait 10 games but it is hard. I am very disappointed right now.

    This will be an important time for Casey. It seems many of the players, Bargnani included, are getting complacent. Opponents PPG and fg % are up of late - alarmingly up.

    For many of the players, these last 21 games might determine if they are back next year.

    Honestly though, wtf do we do with Bargnani? Even when he was playing well, I was leaning towards traded him, but now I almost think that it's necessary because keeping him looks like a very high risk thing, if you want him to even sniff those 13 games again.

    Hopefully we win the lotto, and Unibrow makes it a no-brainer for BC.

    Bargnani played strong early in the season when wins mattered.. now the trade dead line is over, and they are out of the playoffs - so his drive has gone back to what it was like the last 5 years.

    Bargnani may come back with a big game later in the season, but from my perspective, I don't know if he can redeem himself anymore.

    I was hoping to see at least 50 consistent games from him this season (which is a tall order but is expected after 5 fairly poor seasons). His injury derailed that.. so I was hoping at least he'd be able to finish the season strong - and he has disappointed.

    I'm back on the 'trade Bargnani' wagon. I'd like to see a scoring wing in return - but there are not a lot to choose from unfortunately. If we can't find a scoring wing, I'd be all for trading Bargnani for another lottery pick.

    I don't hate him. I'm just really disappointed. He has shown what he is capable of. There is no one that can stop Bargnani except Bargnani.

    I hope he can take a page from David Lee's book, via HoopsHype.com:

    Now’s about the time you’d expect a sore knee to crop up for Warriors forward David Lee.

    The seventh-year veteran came to the Warriors hoping his days of meaningless end-of-season basketball were over. Having spent five years playing out the string in New York, and having his postseason hopes dashed last year, Lee finds himself once again with nothing tangible to play for.

    What’s more, two of the starters he’d grown used to playing with are now in Milwaukee, another is on the shelf with ankle problems, and the big man he’s longed to play alongside is out until next year. Who could blame Lee for wanting to shut it down, too?

    Well, he doesn’t.

    “At this point,” Lee said after Tuesday’s shootaround, “it’s about continuing to demand respect by playing hard night in and night out.”

    Instead of being fed up with having to do it again, Lee said past experience has helped him to cope. Rather than being inspired by the pursuit of playoffs, Lee is driven to protect his reputation. Rather than throw in the towel until next year, Lee said he’d rather set the tone for next year by finishing hard.

    This is what Lee does.

    “I was always known inNew Yorkbecause of situations like this where you had to finish out the year strong,” Lee said. “I’d come out and continue to play hard and do my job and be known as a pro and a guy with professionalism. That’s what I want to continue to do here and continue that reputation.”

    Well he hasn't played in a full month i don't care who you are but your going to be rusty when you don't play for an extended period of time and especially if your coming off an injury. He'll be back to IL Mago in a couple of games, hopefully against NY i want to see us crush Lin.

    Actually, he's played 8 games since the injury. That's a full pre-season's worth of contests.
