Toronto Raptors forward Andrea Bargnani walks off the court after their defeat to the Detroit Pistons during their NBA game in Auburn Hills, Michigan November 23, 2012.


The Toronto Raptors will have Andre Bargnani back in the starting lineup on Friday night when they play the Phoenix Suns at the Air Canada Centre.
