Knicks’ Andrea Bargnani Out Indefinitely



As if the cursed Knicks didn’t need more horrible injury news, the Knicks announced Andrea Bargnani had been diagnosed with a torn ligament in his left elbow and is “out indefinitely,’’ but surgery won’t be required.

According to elbow surgeon Dr. Matt Saltzman, of Northwestern University, standard procedure for basketball players with this type of injury is to rest and do physical therapy with a recovery time of 3-6 weeks. Saltzman added only baseball players, javelin throwers and racket sports players would require surgery to reestablish torque and the timetable is about one year if surgery is deemed necessary.

Bargnani hurt the elbow crashing to the floor on a failed driving dunk attempt that made all the highlight shows. Bargnani had been an iron horse, hadn’t missed a game all season. Now his future is unclear.
