Toronto Raptors star Andrea Bargnani re-injured his calf in a 111-106 double overtime victory over the Utah Jazz last night. According to the Toronto Star, Bargnani says the injury is “much worse” than before.

Bargnani was in just his second game back after a calf injury forced him to miss the previous six games. The Raptors had lost all six contests without their former No. 1 overall pick in the lineup. With their win last night, they have now won two in a row since his initial return.

Despite his early exit, the 26-year-old scored 25 points and grabbed five rebounds. In his first game back from injury on Tuesday, he scored a season high 36 points in a win over the Phoenix Suns.
