Bargnani signed a two-year contract with Saski Baskonia of the EuroLeague.
Bargnani spent the 2015-16 league year with the Nets, but was waived following the season. Instead of remaining in the NBA for an eleventh season, he'll head to the EuroLeague with Saski Baskonia. Bargnani is well known in Europe after earning the 2005-06 EuroLeague Rising Star award, so he shouldn't have any trouble adjusting to the rules. Bargnani hasn't officially ruled out a return to the NBA in the future.
Bargnani was waived by the Nets on Saturday, Mike Mazzeo of ESPN.com reports.
The Nets were trying to ship Bargnani out at the trade deadline, but found no suitors, so they'll now be forced to waive him instead. If he does indeed clear waivers, Bargnani will be a free agent and should be able to sign with any team. In 46 games this season with the Nets, he averaged 6.6 points, 2.1 rebounds and 0.4 assists over 14 minutes.
Bargnani (illness) has been ruled out for Friday's game against New York, Al Iannazzone of News Day reports.
With tip-off rapidly approaching, Bargnani was a late scratch for Friday's meeting with his former team. Brook Lopez could be asked to shoulder additional minutes Friday and Thomas Robinson could pick up some minutes off the bench in Bargnani's absence.
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.
Bargnani (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup with the Raptors, Andy Vasquez of The Record reports.
After departing Saturday's game against the Hawks with a sore right ankle, Bargnani will be sidelined Monday, meaning Brook Lopez and Thomas Robinson, as well as rookie Willie Reed, could each see a mild boost in minutes.
Bargnani (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Raptors, Mike Mazzeo of ESPN.com reports.
Bargnani left Saturday's game against the Hawks with a sore right ankle, and it has now led to a questionable tag heading into Monday's outing with the Raptors. If he's unable to play, Brook Lopez and Thomas Robinson could both see a slight increase in minutes. We should see Bargnani's status updated following Monday morning's shootaround.
Bargnani has been ruled out for the remainder of Saturday's game due to a sore right ankle, Andy Vasquez of The Record reports.
The veteran big man played just 10 minutes off the bench in Saturday's game before exiting the contest with a sore ankle. That said, it's worth noting that the Nets were down by a considerable margin at the time Bargnani was ruled out, so it could have been a precautionary measure. More information should be made available following Saturday's game.
Bargnani posted seven points (3-6 FG, 1-1 FT) and two rebounds over 15 minutes in Monday's 106-79 loss to the Spurs.
The 15 minutes Bargnani saw Monday were his most since Dec. 23, a span that stretches back nine games. Bargnani, Thomas Robinson, and Willie Reed will all be forced to scrape for playing time behind the starting frontcourt of Thaddeus Young and Brook Lopez, both of whom regularly see 30-plus minutes.
Bargnani scored 23 points (8-15 FG, 7-9 FT) in 23 minutes Thursday, adding six rebounds with an assist in a win over the 76ers.
Bargnani (hamstring) was questionable to play entering Thursday. The 30-year-old center would reward team head coach Lionel Hollins with a season-high 23 points, even adding six rebounds- a rare feat for the offensive-minded big man. Bargnani's progress is likely only worth tracking for deeper leagues; the Italian center is unlikely to receive substantial minutes ahead of Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young.
Bargnani (hamstring) will be available to play Thursday against Philadelphia, Andy Vasquez of The Record reports.
Bargnani returned to practice Wednesday after a four-game absence due to a strained left hamstring. The veteran big man has struggled to carve out a solid role on the Nets, having played over 20 minutes in a game just once this season.
Bargnani (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday and is considered probable to play Thursday against the 76ers, Mike Mazzeo of ESPN reports.
A hamstring strain has kept Bargnani out of each of the last four games, but he's trending in the right direction to return to active status Thursday. The former No. 1 overall pick has scored in double-digits three times this season, but he's been mostly ineffective off the bench, shooting just 41.0 percent from the field and 22.2 percent from three.
Bargnani (hamstring) will not play Tuesday against Houston, Mike Mazzeo of ESPN reports.
Bargnani continues to deal with a hamstring injury, and his absence from practice Monday appears to have sealed his fate as an inactive Tuesday. The former No. 1 pick has missed the last three games since sustaining the injury against Detroit last Sunday. His next chance to return will come Thursday versus Philadelphia.
Bargnani (hamstring) is out again for Sunday's matchup against Warriors, Andy Vasquez of The Record reports.
This will be the third consecutive game missed for Bargnani, who injured his hamstring Nov. 29. His next opportunity to play will be Tuesday versus Houston. Bargnani is averaging 5.9 points in 13 minutes per game.
Bargnani (hamstring) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Knicks, Andy Vasquez of The Record reports.
Bargnani exited last Sunday's game just three minutes into the contest and hasn't seen the floor since. Though it doesn't appear to be a super long-term injury, it's unclear how much time Bargnani could miss as he had the same ailment during the preseason. For now, look for Thomas Robinson to pick up Bargnani's absentee minutes.
Bargnani (hamstring) will not play Tuesday against Phoenix, Mike Mazzeo of ESPN reports.
The Nets are classifying the injury as "tightness" in Bargnani's hamstring, and the ailment forced him out of Sunday's matchup with the Pistons. It's unclear how much time he could miss, but Bargnani missed the entire preseason with the same injury, so Brooklyn may exercise increased caution.
Bargnani will not return to Sunday's game against the Pistons due to a tight left hamstring, Mike Mazzeo of ESPN reports.
Bargnani left after just three minutes of action Sunday, finishing with no points on 0-for-1 shooting while picking up a foul. In his absence, Brook Lopez could be forced into extra action, while Thomas Robinson seems the obvious candidate for extra minutes as well should Bargnani's injury hold him out past Sunday's contest. The big man's next chance to return will come Tuesday against the Suns.
