J.J. Barea (leg) participated in 5-on-5 drills during Wednesday’s practice and was moving well according to beat writer Earl Sneed.
The hope for owners will be that he can get on the floor in advance of the upcoming three-game week, but more realistically owners should be hoping to use him in the following four-game week. If he doesn’t start to earn the trust next week we can talk about pitching him to the wire in 8-cat formats. Otherwise, in a 12-team, 8-cat league the upside is too nice to pass on in most circumstances.
