Andrea Bargnani PF/C NY 13 Hrs
Andrea Bargnani played 27 minutes in a win over the Bulls on Wednesday, finishing with eight points, three boards, one assist, one steal and one block.
The milk has gone bad for Bargnani over his last four, shooting just 32.0 percent from the field for 9.5 points, 4.3 boards, 1.0 blocks and 0.8 triples. Things aren't looking up for his value with Tyson Chandler coming back at some point and Amare Stoudemire outplaying him, so it's not too bad of an idea to cut him for a hot free agent.

Andrea Bargnani hit 5-of-17 shots for 11 points, three rebounds, two assists and a steal in Tuesday's loss to the Cavaliers.
He didn't have a block or a 3-pointer, and has quickly cooled off, struggling like the team he plays for. He's hit just 6-of-24 shots in his last two games, scoring a total of 13 points, but is still getting enough minutes (29.4 over his last five games) to be owned in all leagues. He should bounce back tomorrow against the Bulls.

Andrea Bargnani scored just two points on 1-of-7 shooting against the Celtics on Sunday for two points with three rebounds and one block in 23 minutes.
The starters shot 13 percent in the first half to start this game and Bargnani was 1-of-7 at the break. Tyson Chandler (leg) will be back at some point and it would mean the Italian would take a hit in minutes. Bargnani's blocks have really helped buoy his value with 3.7 per game over previous three, so fantasy owners should be looking to sell high for anything that projects to have some decent value beyond this month.

Andrea Bargnani received his second technical foul for saying something to Kevin Garnett following a made 3-pointer and was ejected from Thursday's game.
Referee Joey Crawford made the technical call and he's renowned for his numerous technical calls. Bargnani had a terrific game in the win, scoring 17 points on 7-of-13 shooting with two boards, three assists, one steal, three blocks and two 3-pointers. Bargnani's value won't be much higher than it is right now since he's coming off a six-block, 17-point game on Sunday. His value will take a hit once Tyson Chandler comes back, so plan accordingly.

Andrea Bargnani blocked six shots vs. the Pelicans, tying his career-high, adding 17 points, seven rebounds and two steals in a futile effort.
New York couldn't earn a victory despite the absence of Anthony Davis (hand) for most of the game, but at least fantasy owners got an unexpected boost from Bargs (even if his blocks were largely a consequence of the Pelicans singling him out to attack defensively). Tyson Chandler's return date is uncertain but shouldn't be more than 2-3 weeks away, at which point all bets are off for Bargnani's value.

Andrea Bargnani scored 22 points against the Nuggets on Friday with five boards, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.
He shot 7-of-11 from the field and he had a surprising four field goals come from inside of the paint. The seven-foot Italian has taken just 34 percent of his shots from inside the paint this season, which is a fairly low percentage for a guard. Bargnani is still worth owning in standard leagues while Tyson Chandler (leg) is out, though.

Andrea Bargnani scored 20 points on 8-of-18 shooting (no threes) with 10 rebounds and four blocks in the Knicks' loss to the Clippers on Wednesday.
Bargnani has been a top 55-85 play in 9- and 8-cat leagues respectively over the past two weeks, as the Knicks are forced to go to him given the depth issues they have and Bargs hasn't fallen apart yet. For his part he's doing a pretty good job answering the call and owners will probably be best served riding him until the wheels fall off.

Andrea Bargnani hit 5-of-11 shots for 16 points, nine rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a 3-pointer in Saturday's loss to the Hawks.
It's amazing what Tyson Chandler's injury did to Bargnani's value. He went from doing nothing and being dropped in most leagues to cranking out 20 points, 6.5 rebounds and plenty of 3-pointers and blocks over his last five games. He should be owned in all leagues, and then the hope is that he'll have enough confidence to keep it going at power forward once Chandler is back in aciton.

Andrea Bargnani continued his hot streak on Thursday with 24 points, four boards, one block and three 3-pointers on 9-of-12 shooting vs. the Rockets.
The Italian was booed earlier this season for his lackluster play and he still hasn't made a shot in post-up yet this season, but he's quickly endearing himself into the Garden crowd. In his last four, he's averaged 21.3 points, 1.8 blocks and 2.3 triples. Bargnani was a fantasy stud a few seasons ago and the Knicks are allowing him to play his style of game. He has to be owned across the board.

Andrea Bargnani had 20 points, 11 rebounds, a block and two 3-pointers on 8-of-15 shooting in Wednesday's win over the Hawks.
The Hawks aren't traditionally strong against opposing centers, but then again, Bargnani's not exactly a typical starting center. The 11 rebounds are pretty shocking, as the last time he had at least 10 in a game (and double-doubled) was Jan. 11, 2012. Don't expect this kind of line out of Bargnani again this season, but his scoring and production should be solid for the depleted Knicks as long as Tyson Chandler is sidelined.
