J.J. Barea (calf) is questionable for Monday’s game vs. the Nuggets.
This is great news as he’d be beating his own timetable if he returned tonight. Prior to his injury Barea was leading the way for the Dallas backcourt with 16.3 points, 5.4 assists and 2.0 treys per game and was a solid fantasy asset. The Mavs have depth in their backcourt now with Deron Williams, Seth Curry and Devin Harris so his fantasy appeal is definitely less. Regardless there is too much upside and he could easily hold top-100 value when being deployed in 25 mpg.
