Knicks' Bargnani adds injury to insult after failed dunk

Andrea Bargnani is currently being mocked across the social media world after attempting a dunk last night for the New York Knicks and a really...really long way.

But now it appears, not only has the Italian's pride been hurt after his fall in the game, but so has his elbow.

The Knicks revealed, via Twitter, that the center-forward suffered a torn left elbow ligament as he came into contact with the ground during his attempt Wednesday evening.

And the player is now listed as out indefinitely.

This may however be a blessing in disguise for the struggling Knicks with Bargnani coming in for major criticism this season for poor defense and a lack of consistency.

With the player seemingly out on the sidelines for a prolonged stretch, coach Mike Woodson may have to put star man Carmelo Anthony into the power forward position - a move that came with some degree of success last season.

Hopefully Bargnani will have learnt his lesson when he returns.

Here is the incident in case you missed it.
