Andrea Bargnani will miss a substantial part of the rest of the NBA regular season after having an emergency appendectomy early this morning.
According to various Italian media reports, including the website of La Gazetta dello Sport, the 21-year-old rookie became ill after practice yesterday and had the surgery overnight at a Toronto hospital.
There is no official word from the Raptors on the surgery, or how long Bargnani will be sidelined. Recovery from an appendectomy can generally take between three weeks and a month; the NBA regular season ends April 18.
Bull****, I had an appendectomy when I was a kid and was back on the monkey bars in 7 days.
Anyway, best wishes to Andrea, he'd better be back for the playoffs.
And to Sam: this is not a valid excuse to play Joey Graham more.
exactly.......you had a appendectomy WHEN YOU WERE A KID. Kids are very resilient and bounce back fast.
I had a appendectomy after suffering for a week, because my mother thought it was just a stomach virus (stupid b!tch, she was also a damn ER nurse).
Anyways she took me to a crappy hospital, they told me the damn thing would of ruptured if I showed up 15 minutes later. The Doctors were so stunned by the growth of my appendix, pictures were taken for high school health books all over Texas. The damn hospital "F"ed up and didn't even cut the whole thing out, so I developed a deadly infection after they sent me home and ended up on antibiotic IV's and sitting in the hospital for a month and a half.
Don't mean to go on a rant, but that was the most painful sh!t I went through in my life, I was practically eating my knees for a week, because all I could do was lay in the fetal position...............I laugh at b!tches that talk about child birth.

How sweet would it be to see Slokar step in and get 20 minutes a game and get like 8/8 a game the rest of the season? Then if Bargs is back for the playoffs we've got a confident young rebounder to bring off the bench
Bargnani shouldn't be out to long, because pro athletes have the best doctors in the world. Usually a appendectomy only keeps you in the hospital over night, then you relax at home for a week and a half...........unless you have complications like I did.
I have a question for people that suffered from this........especially people that had severe cases...........
Wasn't that the most painful sh!t you went through in your entire life.
I was litterly sitting on the toilet for 2 days with a trash can between my legs......I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy.
