Found January 25, 2013 on NBA Injury News:
Toronto Raptors' forward Andrea Bargnani and center Jonas Valanciunas could return within the next couple of weeks. According to Toronto Sun, Bargnani will likely make his return after an elbow injury in the next two weeks along with Valanciunas.Andrea Bargnani continues to take shots before games, but is still in pain and still likely needs another week or two. Expect Jonas Valanciunas back first. Saturday is not out of the question, but early next week seems more likely.The Raptors currently sit at 16-27, but are only 4-17 with Bargnani playing. In his 21 games, he's averaging 16.0 points and 4.3 rebounds. On a negative note, he's doing so on just 39.8% efficiency from the field. he's taking a career-high 4.5 threes per game, where he only converts 31.8% of them. His free throw attempts have dipped from 5.6 last year to just 3.0 a game this year. Being a 80%+ free throw shooter, one would hope that he starts drawing more fouls.Follow @hoopsinjurynews!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.nbainjurynews.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs"); var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-34100676-1']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); (function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ?
