Raptors F Bargnani nearing return
Toronto Raptors forward Andrea Bargnani went through his first full practice Thursday since suffering a calf strain in late January.
Bargnani has missed 20 games with injury, which came in his second game back after missing six games with a calf injury.
There’s a possibility he could be back in uniform this weekend, depending on feels Friday.
“I’m out of rhythm, out of shape, but that will come with work,” Bargnani said.
Raptors coach Dwane Casey said he’ll closely monitor Bargnani’s minutes once he does return to the floor.
Toronto’s leading scorer, Bargnani is averaging 23.5 points and 6.4 rebounds for the season.
