Bargnani returns from injury to face Celtics


Posted Feb 6, 2013 7:04 PM

TORONTO (AP) -- Center Andrea Bargnani was set to come off the bench for the Toronto Raptors for Wednesday's game against Boston, ending a 26-game injury absence.

The top pick in the 2006 draft, Bargnani has not played since tearing a ligament in his right elbow in a Dec. 10 loss at Portland. The 7-footer also injured his right wrist in that game when he fell awkwardly on a dunk attempt.

Bargnani has started in every appearance for Toronto since Dec. 29, 2008, when he came off the bench in a loss at Golden State.

Toronto's Aaron Gray, who has had double-digit rebounds in four straight games, was set to start at center against the Celtics.

The Raptors went 13-13 without Bargnani, who is averaging 16.0 points and 4.3 rebounds in 21 games.
