J.J. Barea (ribs) will not play on Saturday night as the Mavs face the Nets.
Barea was on the injury report heading into last night’s game but that didn’t prevent him from scoring 18 points in 19 minutes. He’s probably dealing with a minor ailment that the Mavs are using to help enable the tank. Look for Dennis Smith Jr. and Yogi Ferrell to have plenty of breathing room in the backcourt tonight, with Kyle Collinsworth seeing extra run off the bench.
