Raptors' Bargnani blames struggles on fatigue



Bargnani has hit only nine of 27 shots over the first two games (33.3%) and is 2-for-8 from three-point range.

Last season, the seven-footer dipped to just 29.6% accuracy from behind the line, continuing a downward trend from his career-best 40.9% in 2008-09 and 37.2% last year.

Bargnani is not getting as much lift or arc on his shots, which points to the fitness issue he raised.
Is it really fatigue or should he just avoid taking 3's?

Yeah, I posted this is the preseason thread. I hope it's the reason he's been garbage, although it looks more mental (when doesn't it with Bargs). That said, shouldn't he have come into training camp ready to go?

I'm not to worried to be honest with you. Yes he should of been ready to go but you know that Bargs will be contributing every way he can during the first game of the season. Motivation is a big factor when talking about Bargs, and I'm assuming he just can't himself motivated for meaningless Pre-season games. It tends to happen with veteran players.
