Avery Johnson said one player currently playing in the D-League -- there's two, Moe Ager and rookie Nick Fazekas -- will be re-joining the Mavs soon to make room for second-year guard J.J. Barea to make his first trip to the Tulsa 66ers this season.
Johnson said Barea needs to get some minutes. If Barea is inactive for tonight's game, it will be the 13th consecutive game in which he has not dressed. It's possible, but not definite, that Ager will join the team when it leaves for Minneapolis on Saturday. They play the T-Wolves on Sunday afternoon.
