TORONTO (AP) -Toronto forward Andrea Bargnani practiced Monday for the first time in more than a week and hopes to play when the Raptors face the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday.
If Bargnani plays, it will be the first time Toronto has had its trio of stars - Bargnani, T.J. Ford and Chris Bosh - together in the lineup since Nov. 20.
``The knee is getting better every day,'' Bargnani said after Monday's practice. ``Today I practiced normally and it was feeling good. I can try to play, we'll see (Tuesday).''
Bargnani is averaging 11.9 points and 4.5 rebounds this season.
