The worst season of Andrea Bargnani’s career has mercifully come to an end. Bargs averaged 12.7 points per game (a career low), shot 40% from the fied (and 31% on threes), lost his starting spot while battling numerous injuries, and was booed relentlessly by Raptors fans. Toronto announced today that their big man will be shut down with a right elbow sprain. Per the press release: “The Toronto Raptors announced Wednesday that forward Andrea Bargnani is expected to be sidelined for the remainder of the 2012-13 season with an avulsion sprain of the right elbow. This injury is not related to his previous right elbow injury that sidelined him for 26 games (December 12 – February 3). Bargnani left at the 3:08 mark in the first quarter March 8 against the Los Angeles Lakers and did not return. He appeared in 14 of 15 games prior to this injury, including four straight starts (March 2-8).”
