Andrea Bargnani will miss the first week of the season

Week 1 of Knicks Basketball Brought To You By Handi-Snacks starts Wednesday, with three games in five nights. Andrea Bargnani will miss all of them because of his sore hamstring: Knicks rule Bargnani (hamstring) out for 1st week of season. Also, Travis Outlaw at open practice. Team expected to waive or trade him soon — Ohm Youngmisuk (@NotoriousOHM) October 26, 2014 Bargnani skipped all but the first preseason game because of that hamstring, and he's been either limited or absent in every practice since. The fact that New York's already counting him out a week ahead of time means it...

Derek Fisher kinda named a starting lineup

Andrea Bargnani is still out with a hamstring injury and may remain so through the season opener. Jose Calderon will sit the final preseason game tonight to rest his sore calf, but he's fine. Quincy Acy's wrist is still bugging him. The Knicks will start the following lineup tonight (except with Shane Larkin in Calderon's place) and Derek Fisher very nearly confirmed it'll be the starting lineup on opening night: “It would be safe to say that would be pretty close to it” Fisher on starters for opener: Calderon, Shump, Melo, Jason Smith, Dalembert — Jonah Ballow (@jonahballow)...

Derek Fisher still searching for rotation as Knicks beat Wizards

The Knicks are just days away from opening the regular-season against the Chicago Bulls and yet two of the team’s likely starters are still nursing injuries. While one of them- Jose Calderon- seems to be close to returning from a right calf strain, the other, Andrea Bargnani, remains in medical limbo with a pulled hamstring.

Preseason Game Thread: Knicks vs. Wizards- 10/22/14

Hi! The penultimate preseason game is tonight, but because of injuries and stuff, we're still not going to get a normal starting lineup. Jose Calderon will rest his sore hamstring while Andrea Bargnani remains out, and the following guys will start: Fisher says Larkin, Hardaway, Melo, Jason Smith and Dalembert will start — Chris Herring (@HerringWSJ) October 22, 2014 So, there's yet another new frontcourt with time running out before these things start to matter. And regarding Shane Larkin over Pablo Prigioni as second-stringer: Fish says Pablo's limited minutes are due in part...

Knicks season opener in doubt for banged-up Andrea Bargnani

Knicks season opener in doubt for banged-up Andrea Bargnani

Derek Fisher may have more faith in Andrea Bargnani than the big Italian has in himself. With the Oct. 29 season opener against the Chicago Bulls on the horizon, Fisher refused to rule Bargnani out despite the fact that the Knicks forward has not played since suffering a hamstring injury during the club’s first preseason game two weeks ago.

Injured Andrea Bargnani might not be ready for Knicks' opener

As Derek Fisher experiments with different lineup configurations in advance of next week's regular-season opener, the lingering absence of Andrea Bargnani has added an untimely wrinkle into the plans of the Knicks coach.

Bargs status for opener up in air

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Here’s what we know about Andrea Bargnani: He hasn’t played in a game since Oct. 8 because of a hamstring injury. He didn’t practice on Tuesday and won’t play Wednesday against Washington. And there is uncertainty about his availability for the Knicks’ regular season opener next Wednesday. “We still have eight days before opening night. I can’t say at this point whether or not that’s in jeopardy,” Derek Fisher said of Bargnani playing in the opener against Chicago at MSG.

Bargnani out; PF rotation up in the air

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Andrea Bargnani will miss his third straight game due to a hamstring ailment, Knicks coach Derek Fisher said Sunday. “He hasn't been able to practice the last few days so it wouldn't be smart to jeopardize him by putting him into game action tomorrow,” Fisher said. The coach was hoping to have a better handle on lineups and rotations entering Monday’s game against Milwaukee. But Bargnani's absence has made it difficult for Fisher to make a true evaluation.

Former Knick John Starks: Expect Andrea Bargnani to bounce back this season

Derek Fisher has been careful not to set specific expectations for any of his players during training camp. But one member of the organization is predicting big things from Andrea Bargnani. "I know he's going to have a bounce-back year," former Knicks great John Starks said on Anthony Donahue's "The Knicks Blog Podcast" last week. "This is a tailor-made offense that's good for guys who can shoot the ball, especially big guys, and he's one of the best in the league that can stretch the defense.

Andrea Bargnani sits with sore hamstring

UNCASVILLE, Conn. -- New York Knicks forward Andrea Bargnani missed Saturday's preseason game against the Boston Celtics due to slight tightness in his right hamstring. "I think our medical staff feels that tonight (off) would be good -- especially with three games in four nights, it would be good to get him an extra day's rest," Knicks coach Derek Fisher said before the game. Bargnani started in the Knicks' preseason opener and played well early on.
