DENVER - Tests on Andrea Bargnani's injured calf muscle revealed no significant damage, but the Toronto Raptors have no timeline for his return.

The Raptors' leading scorer reinjured his strained calf in the first overtime of Wednesday's double-overtime victory over Utah and underwent testing Thursday in Denver.

The team says the Italian forward will be sidelined indefinitely.

Former Denver swingman Linas Kleiza is getting the start for Toronto against the Nuggets on Friday night.

This marks Kleiza's first game in Denver since leaving the Nuggets two years ago to play in Greece. He was hurt last year when the Raptors played in Denver.

Bargnani originally injured his calf Jan. 11 against Sacramento and missed six games from January 13-22.

Bargnani is averaging a team-high 23.5 points over 13 games, plus 6.4 rebounds, second on the team. He has scored 30 or more points in four games, including 36 in his return to the lineup Tuesday in Phoenix.
