Barea doesn't practice, questionable for Friday's game
November 8, 2012 — 5:12pm
J.J. Barea didn't practice today after suffering a mid-foot sprain in his left foot in Wednesday's victory over Orlando.
He declined to talk about his injury after practice, but was candid after Wednesday's game about his regret for chasing a loose ball into the scorer's table with the Wolves leading big in the fourth quarter.
The Wolves today listed his condition simply as "day to day," just like all of us.
He'll receive treatment and be re-evaluated again Friday before that night's game against Indiana.
Jerry Zgoda missed the entire Kevin Garnett era, but he's back covering the Timberwolves after working the beat for their first four seasons two decades ago. In between, he covered a bit of everything: Gopher men's and women's basketball and NCAA athletics, golf, outdoor recreation, sports media and a little Vikings and Twins.
Those who knew Timberwolves star Jimmy Butler long ago are having their allegiances tested now that the pride of Tomball, Tex., is playing the Houston Rockets tonight in Game 2 of their NBA playoff series.
