GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- The reeling [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] have lost yet another big man with [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] now out indefinitely with a torn ligament in his left elbow.The team announced Bargnani underwent an MRI that revealed the injury. The 7-footer injured his elbow with under two minutes remaining in the third quarter of Wednesday's game, according to the team. He took a hard spill on his left elbow during the game while trying to attempt a dunk.
Bargnani remained in the game, making both free throws on the foul and finished the quarter. He also played the first three minutes of the fourth quarter and finished with 20 points and four blocked shots in the 110-106 loss to the Sixers.
The Knicks, who have lost five straight games, already are decimated by injuries to the front court. Bargnani joins forwards [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] as Knicks who are out due to injuries. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] also did not practice on Thursday but they were given a recovery day, according to the team.
Stoudemire (sprained left ankle and bone bruise) and Martin (sprained left ankle/tendinitis) have been out since Jan. 17. Their timetable has been at least two weeks for recovery.
World Peace is sidelined with a sore left knee and he hopes to return perhaps next week after undergoing platelet-rich plasma therapy.
Bargnani, the 2006 No. 1 overall pick, is the team's second-leading scorer at 13.3 points per game. He has started 39 of 42 games this season and also is averaging 5.3 rebounds and 1.2 blocks.
The Knicks are now down to [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] as their remaining healthy bigs going into the Charlotte game on Friday at Madison Square Garden.
"I just think injuries have just destroyed a lot of things that we wanted to set out and do," head coach Mike Woodson said on The Stephen A. Smith and Ryan Ruocco Show on ESPN New York 98.7 prior to the Bargnani injury news being announced. "The fact that we haven't been able to practice that much, Tyson has missed a helluva lot of games this season, Raymond was in and out, J.R. [Smith] missing the first five games [due to suspension], it has just been kind of a roller coaster ride for everybody.
"But at the end of the day, we are still in the hunt, we are not out of this by any means."
I wonder if ....
Barg's agent askin questions "When Barg test result were negative he came back-out to play .. what happen?"
Nah, don't you know? We're suppose to trade Melo and keep Bargnani. Melo is everything wrong with the Knicks.
Have u notice each season how our bigmen are the ones that stay injury-prone
MWP/Stat/K-Mart/and Barg (injuries) are forcing puppet-Woodson to give playingtime to Cole Aldrich and Jeremy Tyler.
We have 27 losses out of 42 games, and Aldrich & Tyler has average 3 to 5 minutes of playingtime per week.

You act like these guys have a track record of success in this league, but to you Melo is holding down their careers from blossoming.
Man, honestly I'm going to say this in the most professional way but
May you please shut the uck up?
Aldrich and Tyler have been 15th men in their entire career.
How about they elevate their own play and Woodson gives them a chance?
I know for sure they can rebound and we need rebounding.
But you sound like a jackass every time you repeat the same ish about Melo every team.
Is-Melo isn't even a real thing. Woodson just has no control of this team. We've seen Iso-Felton, Iso-Smith, Iso-Amare, Iso-Bargs and Iso-Melo.
It's not something to notice either.
If you just notice now that Amare, Martin and Andrea B. are injury prone then you're late as hell.
Knicks traded for low valued NBA players and overpaid guys like Stoudemire and Chandler, players that their former teams thought were expendable and were not valuable in the long term.
Now we don't have a balanced roster because most of our money is owed to Stoudemire, Chandler, Bargnani, Smith and Felton...all 5 guys worthy of being cut for the lackluster season they've had this year and also for how damaging their contracts are on our cap.
Kiyaman, when the hell will you wake up and realize 80% of this roster either won't be in the NBA in 5 seasons and most of these players don't even rank in the top 30 of their positions.
We've invested money in the wrong place, just like you're investing your angry in the wrong place.
It's getting tired-some.
The only way out is to break the team up.
Aldrich and Tyler should play more minutes. We've already see Andrea and Stat and now they're out so theres no excuse for Woodson.
Looks familiar? This was last year. We threw away 3 draft picks + cap space for this floor. But these f@gs are still crying about Melo, directing their anger in the wrong place.
Well one things for sure, Denver will be getting a nice pick from us this year...sadly the Knicks have the best fans in the world, yet they can do whatever the f#$% they want, and we;'ll still be here....sad
5 minutes left in the Philly game, Bargs comes back from the lockerroom with negative results from his fall. Why wasnt Barg put back into the game?
The question above has resulted in Bargs joining his veteran frontline teammates of "Stat, K-Mart, and MWP" cheerleading squad. Prigioni maybe a couple of minutes of playingtime away from joining Beno's cheerleading squad.
How well will Cole Aldrich and Jeremy Tyler do in the Knicks ISO-Melo system???
Did he tear it with the tried dunk fall?
It's melo's fault because he didn't catch Bargs before he hit the ground. That selfish,lazY, me-first Melo is too self-centered to catch his other teammates before they fall and hurt themselves. Did I get it right 3GDumE&Kiya
