Default Andrea Bargnani cleared to practice without contact.

Rotoworld is reporting he's likely 1-2 weeks away.

Quote:
Andrea Bargnani (elbow) is "likely" 1-2 weeks away from returning.

Bargnani is getting shots up before every game now, but he's still dealing with some pain in his shooting elbow. The Raptors certainly won't rush him. So far this season, they are 4-17 when he plays and 12-10 when he doesn't. A large reason for that has been the exemplary play of Ed Davis and Amir Johnson, two tough big men that fit coach Dwane Casey's philosophies. Casey has already suggested that Bargnani, the 2006 No. 1 overall pick, will struggle to get his starting power forward job back from Davis. Expect the Raptors to showcase Bargnani for a trade ahead of the Feb. 21 deadline. He's a mere stash for fantasy owners. Jan 25 - 3:03 PM

No ETA right available right now though. Maybe couple more weeks.

He needs to slim down a bit, and work on his shot. His shooting has been the biggest concern this year..

Drops 34 points one night with ease, then goes 2/19...

Work on those J's AB

I thought the title said: "without contract"

Can we still change it?

Interested to see how Andrea reacts to his reduced role (assuming Casey sticks to his word and allows Ed to continue starting). Maybe he starts playing with a sense of urgency and becomes a key piece to this teams playoff run.

Or maybe he comes back and completely shits the bed for this team. Which is also a possibility.

Shits the bed.

He can't play a ball movement style of play. He's a glue guy.... in the fingers only.
