Knicks’ Andrea Bargnani Has Torn Ligament In Left Elbow, Is Out Indefinitely
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — What else can go wrong this season?
The New York Knicks say forward Andrea Bargnani has a torn ligament in his left elbow and is out indefinitely.
Bargnani was hurt Wednesday during a 110-106 loss to Philadelphia when he landed hard while attempting to dunk. He had an MRI on Thursday that revealed the injury.
It’s the latest injury for the Knicks (15-27), who have lost five in a row and have battled injuries all season. They are already missing forwards Amare Stoudemire and Kenyon Martin from their frontcourt because of sprained left ankles.
Bargnani is averaging 13.3 points, second on the team, in his first season in New York. The Knicks acquired the No. 1 pick in the 2006 draft from Toronto during the summer.
