Dallas Mavericks sixth man J.J. Barea suffered a torn right Achilles tendon during Friday’s 119-115 road victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves, the team announced Saturday.
The injury ends Barea’s season and puts in doubt his availability for the start of next season. Barea, a former undrafted free agent in his 13th NBA season, is in the final year of his contract but has said he plans to play at least two more seasons.
