3/27/2015 10:52:00 AM
Description: Guard J.J. Barea will not play in Friday's game against San Antonio.
Insight: Barea is dealing with an ankle issue. He has little fantasy value as long as Rajon Rondo and Monta Ellis are healthy, which they currently are.
 
3/23/2015 3:30:00 PM
Description: Guard J.J. Barea will not play in Tuesday's game against San Antonio.
Insight: Barea is dealing with an ankle issue. He has little fantasy value as long as Rajon Rondo and Monta Ellis are healthy, which they currently are.
 
2/19/2015 10:14:00 AM
Description: Guard J.J. Barea will return to his bench role with the expected return of Rajon Rondo to the starting lineup.
Insight: Barea had averaged 11.3 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 4.8 apg in eight starts. He averages just 7.1 ppg coming off the bench, so you can safely leave him on the sidelines starting Thursday night.
 
2/10/2015 9:52:00 AM
Description: Guard J.J. Barea could be a viable fantasy option for Wednesday's game against Utah of Monta Ellis' injury keeps him sidelined.
Insight: Barea and backup Devin Harris would see a lot of playing time with Rajon Rondo and Ellis watching in street clothes. Barea posted 15 points and seven assists Monday after Ellis went down.
 
2/5/2015 10:29:00 AM
Description: Guard J.J. Barea is starting in place of the injured Rajon Rondo, but isn't a great fantasy option.
Insight: Barea and backup Devin Harris are sharing time fairly evenly alongside Monta Ellis. Barea has averaged 28.5 mpg over the last two contests while Harris has seen 22.5 mpg.
 
2/2/2015 8:34:00 PM
Description: Guard J.J. Barea will start in place of the injured Rajon Rondo on Monday.
Insight: Barea is still only worth a look in deep leagues. He will likely play about 20-23 minutes. Devin Harris is a better fantasy option.
 
10/27/2014 4:37:00 PM
Description: Guard J.J. Barea was signed by the Dallas Mavericks after being released by Minnesota
Insight: Barea returns to the team he played for from 2006-10. He'll be in a crowded backcourt with Jameer Nelson, Raymond Floyd and Devin Harris and likely has no fantasy value.
 
10/18/2014 11:21:00 AM
Description: Timberwolves guard J.J. Barea is not a recommended fantasy option for the upcoming season.
Insight: He is buried on the depth chart behind Ricky Rubio and Mo Williams, and as a result should be left off owners' rosters during draft day.
 
4/11/2014 7:14:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves guard J.J. Barea (back spasms) will play Friday, according to Andy Greder of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
Insight: Kevin Martin and Chase Budinger are out, so the minutes are there for Barea to play.
 
4/11/2014 5:51:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves guard J.J. Barea (back spasms) is questionable for Friday's game, according to the Star Tribune.
Insight: Kevin Martin and Chase Budinger are out, so the minutes are there for Barea to play if he can get in the lineup.
 
4/9/2014 7:06:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves guard J.J. Barea (back spasms) will miss Wednesday's game, according to Kent Youngblood of the Star Tribune.
Insight: With Kevin Martin, Chase Budinger and Barea all sidelined, the onus will be on Ricky Rubio and Alexey Shved to produce in the backcourt. Rubio has averaged 17 ppg over his last four games.
 
3/26/2014 7:30:00 PM
Description: T-Wolves guard J.J. Barea will play through a sore foot Wednesday against Atlanta. SOURCE: Andy Greder, St. Paul Pioneer Press
Insight: He sat out Monday against the Grizzlies. Barea's return could mean fewer minutes for Ricky Rubio (9.1 ppg, 8.5 apg, 4.5 rpg) at point guard.
 
Cold3/26/2014 1:58:00 PM
Description: Minnesota point guard J.J. Barea is questionable for Wednesday's game due to a sprained left foot.
Insight: Barea is averaging only 18.3 minutes per game this season, his lowest since 2007-08. He's not a fantasy option at this time, even when healthy.
 
Cold3/24/2014 7:38:00 PM
Description: Minnesota point guard J.J. Barea is out with a sprained foot Monday against Memphis. SOURCE: Minneapolis Star Tribune
Insight: That should free up more minutes for Ricky Rubio (9.2 ppg, 8.6 apg, 4.5 rpg) and Alexey Shved (4.0 ppg) at point guard. Barea has only scored in double-digits once in his last five appearances.
 
1/25/2014 9:05:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves guard J.J. Barea (back) is expected to play Saturday against the Trail Blazers, according to the Star Tribune.
Insight: Barea is a solid scoring combo guard off the bench for Minnesota but he only plays 18.6 minutes per game.
 
3/5/2013 8:47:00 PM
Description: The NBA has downgraded the flagrant foul Timberwolves guard J.J. Barea was assessed Monday against the Heat to a flagrant-1.
Insight: During the fourth quarter Monday, Heat guard Ray Allen turned his back to an advancing Barea to protect the ball on the perimeter and used his left arm to push Barea backwards. The Timberwolves guard lost his temper and checked Allen on an ensuing drive to the basket, but it was hardly a flagrant-2. This ensures that Barea has avoided a fine or suspension.
 
2/11/2013 12:06:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves guard J.J. Barea is questionable for Monday's game against Cleveland after hurting his foot on Friday and missing Sunday's game with Memphis.
Insight: Barea has only averaged about 23 minutes per game but produced pretty good numbers - 11.4 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 4.4 apg.
 
2/10/2013 12:14:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves guard J.J. Barea is questionable for Sunday's game at Memphis after hurting his foot on Friday. He'll work out pregame to see if he can go.
Insight: Barea (11.4 ppg, 4.4 apg) has only missed seven games this season. If he misses Sunday's game, fantasy owners can expect Ricky Rubio (6.6 ppg, 6.3 apg) and Luke Ridnour (11.9 ppg) to pick up most of the slack.
 
2/9/2013 4:01:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves guard J.J. Barea is questionable for Sunday's game at Memphis after hurting his foot on Friday.
Insight: Technically Barea (11.4 ppg, 4.4 apg) has only missed seven games this season but it feels like he's missed a lot more. If he misses Sunday's game, fantasy owners can expect Ricky Rubio (6.6 ppg, 6.3 apg) and Luke Ridnour (11.9 ppg) to pick up most of the slack.
 
Hot1/26/2013 7:03:00 PM
Description: Minnesota point guard J.J. Barea (quad) will not have any restrictions Saturday after bruising his quad last night.
Insight: Barea is averaging 12.7 points, 5.1 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 1.4 threes in 22.5 minutes per game in seven games since returning from a two-game injury absence.
