Default Smith: Bargnani back tonight

As some here already alluded too, Smith confirmed this afternoon that being that Andrea will be back in the line-up tonight. How much he plays is still to be determined, but good news nevertheless.

How much will Bargnani play? No one's sure.

"Some guys miss a little while come back and play good; some guys miss a little while and they come back and struggle, said Sam.

"If hes playing well, you can play him more minutes. Im sure hes not going to have the conditioning but I have to play him and start getting him back. Hes one of our best players."

If case you've been sleeping, Bagnani's missed four games with a hyper-extended knee.

The trouble for Sam, and Bargnani, is that there's precious little practice time. They play back-to-back tonight and tomorrow so Thursday will be a light work day, game Friday, light day Saturday going into a Sunday afternoon game and then a flight to L.A.

They'll have a full practice in Los Angeles on Monday but then it's four games in five days out west that takes them right up to the Christmas break

Busy time, indeed.

Good game for him to come back. He lit up the Hawks in Atlanta last year as I recall.

Yeah, but I don't imagine him getting much of a burn tonight. Sam will likely ease him back into the line-up for safety precautions.

If he knocks down a couple threes early and is feeling his shot..he'll play ...if he struggles...he'll sit.
