Bargnani came off the bench and provided 18 points, four rebounds and one assist.
Bargnani came out of nowhere to score double digits. In his prior two games, he barely played 10+ minutes. Despite this outburst of scoring, Bargnani is too unreliable to contribute in any fantasy format.
Bargnani scored 23 points on 8-for-15 shooting in only 23 minutes for the Nets on Thursday in their 100-91 win over the Sixers. Bargnani also pulled down six rebounds on the night.
Bargnani played for the first time since November 29th on Thursday night and had his best game of the season playing in a season-high 23 minutes. Bargnani has only averaged about 14 minutes per game this season while averaging 6.9 points and 1.9 rebounds per game. Bargnani should not be on fantasy rosters in most leagues.
The Nets are in search of any offensive production, and Bargnani certainly provided that in Wednesday's loss to Chicago, scoring 17 points off the bench, in 22 minutes. Andrea also added seven rebounds, one steal, and one block.
It's not time to rush to your waiver wire to claim Bargnani, but you might want to keep him on your radar. He can be a useful acquisition, though his chronic health issues that have plagued him historically, cannot be ignored.
Andrea Bargnani has reportedly been dealing with a muscle problem in his calf while playing for the Italian national team.
Bargnani has been dealing with calf issues for a couple of years but he isn't expected to miss the upcoming training camp. The former first overall pick's stint with the Knicks was forgettable and it's unlikely that he will have a big role with the Nets to start with.
Free agent Andrea Bargnani has signed a two-year contract with Brooklyn. Sources say the first year if for the veteran minimum with a player option for the second year. Bargnani played for the Knicks the last two seasons.
Bargnani will likely fill the backup center role behind Brook Lopez for the Nets next season. The seven-foot Italian has averaged 15.0 points, 4.8 boards, and 0.9 blocks in his career. With Lopez's injury history and no other center on the roster, Bargnani could find himself in line for plenty of minutes next season, making him a player to keep your eye on in fantasy leagues.
