J.J. Barea sat at his locker before tonight's game at Phoenix with his left foot up on a chair and a big icebag wrapped around his ankle.

He says he'll play anyway against the Suns.

So, too, will Kevin Love, who still has a sore back and hopes to get it some rest on two rare consecutive days without a game on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Darko! is on the inactive list tonight and Anthony Randolph is not.

The only explanation so far is that it's a coach's decision.

If Randolph plays more than usual -- which means any -- could it be to show a potential trade partner that he indeed does live and breathe before Thrusday's trade deadline?
