Andrea Bargnani Calf Injury Update: 'No Significant Damage'

New, comments

Good news for the Toronto Raptors and their star forward-centre, Andrea Bargnani as the team announced that there was 'no significant damage' to his left calf. Bargnani reinjured his calf during Wednesday's overtime victory in Utah. Tests conducted while the team is in Denver provided the results announced on Thursday in a team press release.

Bargnani will begin treatment with no timeline given for his return. He originally injured the calf on January 11 against the Sacramento Kings. He missed six games before returning Tuesday in Phoenix where he scored 36 points in a win over the Suns.

The 26-year-old Italian started the season strong with a career-high .476 shooting percentage to along with the best defensive rebounding percentage (17.6) of his six-year career.

During Bargnani's six-game absence, Ed Davis moved into the starting lineup along side Amir Johnson. Arron Gray, however, got the start in the Raptor's last two games in Phoenix and Utah although he only played about 15 minutes in each contest.
