The New York Knicks will be without center Andrea Bargnani for the first three games of the NBA regular season, and Bargnani could be out even longer with his injured hamstring.
In what shouldn’t be surprising anymore, New York Knicks’ center Andrea Bargnani has an injured hamstring, and will miss at least the first three games of the regular season. The oft-injured Bargnani has been evasive regarding the results of a recent MRI, and both he and the Knicks aren’t quite sure why the injury hasn’t healed yet:

The Knicks are trying to learn the triangle offense under head coach Derrek Fisher, and haven’t had Bargnani available since the first preseason game.It’s entirely possible Bargnani could miss more than just the first three games, and it’s unclear how he will fit into the offense when he returns.
Injuries have become a common refrain with Bargnani, a former top overall pick by the Toronto Raptors, who joined the Knicks via trade before last season. Bargnani appeared in at least 65 games from 2006 through 2010, but played 31 games in 2011-2012, 35 games in 2012-2013, and 42 games with the Knicks last season.
