The fears have been confirmed as J.J. Barea is done for the year with a torn right Achilles tendon.
They are currently evaluating the severity of Barea's tear and many are hoping this isn't the end of the 34-year old's career. Coach Rick Carlisle has been looking for a way to get Jalen Brunson more playing time and this will do it but it may not be enough to warrant standard league consideration as Dennis Smith is likely to return soon.
