Bargnani injured again and again

Only a few more players managed to attract so much polarized attention like Bargnani did in Toronto. Most of the fans still celebrate that he’s no longer a Raptor.

The Knicks acquired center Andrea Bargnani in a four-player trade with the Raptors early in the free-agency period. The Knicks gave up center Marcus Camby, and forward Steve Novak and Quentin Richardson, along with a 2016 first-round pick and two second-rounders. Bargnani spent seven seasons with the Raptors since being the No. 1 overall pick in the 2006 draft, averaging 15.2 points and 4.8 rebounds per game in 433 games.

Andrea Bargnani injured

Earlier this month, the New York Knicks forward/center Andrea Bargnani was at risk of not being able to play for Italy at 2013 Eurobasket in Solvenia this September because of a respiratory tract infection, it has now been confirmed that he has pneumonia. Bargnani will not be allowed to play for his National Team according to Italia Basketball.

It was reported that Bargnani’s condition had improved considerably in the past few days, but with two weeks to go before the start of the tournament, his health would still prevent him from playing in any games next month. Apparently, his health either did not improve as expected or was considerably worse than originally thought. It is potentially worse news for the Knicks who were hoping the big man they had traded for in July would arrive in training camp ready to play six weeks from now.

This is just another setback for Bargnani who has struggled with his conditioning after layoffs in the past. The former 2006 number one overall draft pick had suffered through calf and elbow injuries over the past three seasons and was looking forward to a fresh start with the Knicks this year.
