J.J. Barea (rib muscle strain) and Harrison Barnes (rest) will suit up for Tuesday’s contest against the Pelicans.
Why the tank master Mavs would play an injured veteran like Barea is surprising, but Coach Carlisle said he will give it a go. He could be limited and was already averaging just 21.7 minutes over his last five games. Even in just a few minutes he still averaged 7.4 assists, so that’s the only reason you are playing him. Get Barnes in your lineups! The 25-year-old has had three 25-point or higher games over his last four and should finish the year strong with little help on the roster.
