Default WTF is wrong with Bagnani?

Let me be clear, I don't really care that we are losing, I'm down with the tank. But how on earth can Bargnani still be injured? Wasn't it just a calf injury?

I also want to know this. I just know he re-injured it pretty badly during that Utah game

who knows

either there's structural damage and they're hiding it or it's fine and they're telling him he can't play on it, even though he could

I'm guessing they're just taking their time with the healing. No point on rushing him back anyways, nothing to play for this season.

I'd guess that this is the case, more than anything.... also I'm sure that there are some winks and nods going on with him and his rehab time. There's no doubt this team wins more games with AB in the line-up, playing like he was playing.

It makes sense that they are being extra careful because its a lost season anyway, but if he's an integral part of our future, which it looks like he is, he should be on the court and learning Casey's systems (especially the defensive ones) as much as possible. The shortened training camp and limited practice time due to the lockout is making things hard enough as it is.

With the shortened season over half over, it seems that since there isn't much left, it would be best to save him for when he is needed. With a full season and wider spread games, along with our pick, Val, and whatever trades seem to happen between now and next season, I think we might be looking at a different structure altogether. Mind you, still don't like Bargs but if hes gonna be here, might as well make sure he is healthy and doing something productive...

When the calf injury occured the second time I really think the medical staff and Casey decided it's in the best interest to make sure the calf is healed 100% and in the medical world who knows how long it takes to get back to 100% as opposed to what we think/feel what 100% is.

I do think they're lying though saying Bargnani hasn't practiced with the team yet...why did he travel with the team then???? I just think they don't want to make it blatantly obvious that we're tanking.

I think Casey imposed that all injured players travel with the team, to increase morale and keep them within the atmosphere of the locker room or something.
I doubt they could lie about him practicing, especially with all the media exposure NBA teams get nowadays.

Bargs came to shootaround today says Casey in the morning scuffle. His return is close. Casey says he's not going to rush him back just to win a game because Bargs future and health is more important right now. Basically comfirming the tank

The presence of Bargnani on the court will only increase Raptors winning chance. Is that good or bad, I will pretend not to know.

Another question that could be asked is that if Bargnani stayed healthy, would we be battling Newyork/Boston for a playoff spot? In the 13 games he played in, the raptors for 6/7 and the team had no where to go but up (getting use to the new system, gelling).

I don't think we're a playoff team with Bargnani. I think Boston and NY will improve with time and we probably would've faded out because with or without Bargnani there is not a lot of talent on this roster. I feel like even in this shortened season, the record by seasons end would accurately reflect the players on this team.
