Bargnani compiled 18 points (7-12 FG, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, and one assist across 25 minutes in Monday's 105-100 loss to the Nets. Bargnani has shown occasional outbursts off the bench throughout the season, but his defensive shortcomings will forever limit his playing time, even on the sad-sack Nets. Moreover, he's liable to completely disappear on the offensive end on any given night, as he had only combined for two points over the preceding two contests.
Bargnani (illness) tallied 20 points (9-12 FG, 2-3 FT), one rebound, one assist, and one block across 24 minutes in Tuesday's 102-98 loss to the Heat. Bargnani had been bothered by the illness earlier in the week, but he didn't appear to be at all hampered Tuesday, as he cracked 20 points for the second time this season. Unfortunately for Bargnani, it was only the second time since Dec. 23 that he even reached double digits in the scoring column, and he's averaging just 5.1 points over the Nets' last 15 games. Don't buy into Tuesday's performance.
Bargnani (illness) said he will play Tuesday against the Heat, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports. The tough-as-nails big man will play through the illness that forced him to miss Monday's practice. Bargnani has not been much of a fantasy option this season, however, and he's averaging just 4.7 points and 1.1 rebounds per game in the month of January.
Bargnani missed practice Monday due to illness, Devin Kharpertian of YES Network reports. Bargnani should be considered questionable for Tuesday's game against Miami, but he's held only a minor role for the Nets this season, playing just 10.8 minutes per game in the month of January.
Bargnani (ankle) is available for Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers, Mike Mazzeo of ESPN New York reports. Bargnani missed the Nets' previous game Monday due to a sore right ankle, but the ailment has subsided enough to ensure active status Wednesday. On the season, though, he's averaging a measly 14 minutes per game, hindering his potential to produce.
