J.J. Barea scored 18 points in 23 minutes off the bench on Monday, hitting 8-of-15 shots (including a three) with two rebounds, one assist and one steal.
Usually Barea goes for popcorn lines with points, rebounds and assists and a low field goal percentage. With the high likelihood of rest for his teammates, he's worth a look even on a busy Wednesday. Apr 14 - 4:09 AM

J.J. Barea scored 14 points against the Warriors on Saturday with three assists and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.

Rajon Rondo hyperextended his knee tonight, but it's not believed to be serious. The Mavs are also off until Wednesday and they only have three games this upcoming week, so the incentive isn't there to add Barea at this juncture. We'll reassess if there's more info on Rondo in a couple days.
Apr 5 - 1:58 AM

J.J. Barea (ankle) said that he is ready to play on Wednesday vs. the Thunder, and the Mavericks have him listed as probable.

Barea has missed the past four games for the Mavericks, so it wouldn't be surprising if he doesn't get a lot of run tonight. With averages of 7.5 points and 3.3 assists this season, Barea belongs on the wire in most leagues.
Apr 1 - 10:54 AM

J.J. Barea (ankle) went through a full practice on Tuesday.

We'll be considering Barea questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder, and if he is able to return to the lineup, Raymond Felton will likely fall out of the rotation. Devin Harris and Rajon Rondo would also likely lose some minutes upon Barea's return.

J.J. Barea (ankle) will not be able to play vs. the Pacers on Sunday.

The Mavericks desperately could have used Barea tonight with Monta Ellis (calf) out of commission, but instead they will have to lean on Rajon Rondo, Devin Harris, Richard Jefferson and Raymond Felton. This will be Barea's fourth consecutive game on the sidelines, and considering he is still experiencing soreness in his ankle, the Mavericks won't be in a hurry to rush him back.

J.J. Barea (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Pacers.

He has been sidelined for the past three games, but he has already said that he is hopeful to return on Sunday. Barea's presence off the bench would be crucial if Monta Ellis (calf) sits this one out, but he is still only worth a look in deeper leagues. If Barea can't go, expect Rajon Rondo and Devin Harris to log heavy minutes vs. the Pacers.

J.J. Barea (ankle) said he is hopeful he'll be able to return to the lineup for Sunday's game vs. the Pacers.

We'll be considering Barea questionable for that one, and it'll be Devin Harris as the primary beneficiary for however long Barea is out. Harris is averaging 8.9 points, 2.1 assists, and 1.1 three-pointers through the month of March, so he can be viewed as a low-end option in deep leagues.
Mar 27 - 1:00 PM

J.J. Barea (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Spurs.

With Barea unavailable, Devin Harris will have the opportunity for some extended minutes. Harris is averaging 8.9 points, 2.1 assists, 1.1 three-pointers and 0.8 steals per game through the month of March, so his value is limited to deep leagues.
Mar 26 - 3:41 PM

J.J. Barea (ankle) will not play against the Spurs on Tuesday.

"He’s out tonight for sure," Mavs head coach Rick Carlisle said. "And my understanding is it’s more of a day-to-day thing. Not serious. But he turned it over the other day in practice. He’s not ready to go yet." Devin Harris is in line to see a minutes boost against the Spurs, but he isn't a lock to play as he recovers from an illness, so we may get a look at Raymond Felton if Harris experiences a setback before tip-off.

J.J. Barea (ankle) will not play against the Spurs on Tuesday.

He's expected to miss multiple games due to his ankle sprain from Saturday's practice. Barea going down would have given more minutes to Devin Harris (illness), but he is also not 100 percent due to an illness. Raymond Felton could get some run as a backup for the Mavs.
Mar 23 - 2:54 PM

Head coach Rick Carlisle said that J.J. Barea's ankle injury isn't too serious, but he said there is no timetable for his return.

Barea sprained his ankle at practice Saturday and isn't even traveling with the team, so we will go ahead and consider him doubtful for Tuesday's game vs. the Spurs. We will track Barea's status closely, but it's safe to drop him in most leagues. Devin Harris will get some more ball-handling responsibilities off the bench following this news and is worth a look in deeper leagues.
Mar 22 - 7:47 PM

J.J. Barea sprained his left ankle at practice on Saturday and will not play against the Suns on Sunday.

He didn't even travel, so he could miss Tuesday at home against the Spurs. With Barea out, Devin Harris should play more and Monta Ellis should get a little more ball-handling chances. Barea is not worth owning in most leagues.
Mar 21 - 3:29 PM

J.J. Barea (illness) will play vs. the Magic on Wednesday.

He does have a fever, but Barea was able to go through shootaround and he will likely resume his normal role off the Dallas bench. That being said, he is only worth a look in deeper leagues for owners in need of points and assists.
Mar 18 - 12:05 PM

J.J. Barea (illness) did not participate in Tuesday's practice.

We'll be considering Barea questionable for Wednesday's game against the Magic, and if he's unable to go, Monta Ellis and Rajon Rondo would be forced into heavy minutes with Devin Harris (illness) also looking unlikely. Raymond Felton would have the opportunity to see some increased minutes off the bench, but he's not going to do enough on the stat sheet to matter in any league as a reserve for the Mavericks. Stay tuned.

J.J. Barea (thumb) will play against the Warriors on Friday and Devin Harris (hand) will not.

The Mavs really need Barea tonight or else they would have had to turn to Raymond Felton. Barea should get minutes in the 20s tonight and is worth a look as a deep-league stream play.
