Calf problems have kept Toronto Raptors forward/center Andrea Bargnani out of the lineup for all but two games since Jan. 11. Word came last week that he should be ready to go after the All-Star break, but Raptors PR reports that the 7-0 Italian didn't practice Monday and has "no return date set."

The good news, though, is that Bargnani did do "some conditioning and running off to the side," according to the PR department's tweet.

The 26-year-old, who was selected first overall in the 2006 draft, is averaging 23.5 points, 6.4 rebounds and 0.7 blocks per game in the 13 contests he's appeared in this season.
