One thing that Barea said Durant can without question expect is a long, arduous and at times boring grind that will not end for Durant until sometime in 2020. “I’m five months into it,” the 34-year-old guard said. “I’m basically coming in everyday from 9 to 12 in the morning and I do weights, then do court work and then go back to weights. But I’m basically doing it all on the court already. I’m doing pick-and-rolls, floaters, 3-point shots, a little bit of conditioning. I feel great.”

Barea has his annual basketball camp for kids on July 1, before the expected birth of their son, and his charity golf tournament is in Puerto Rico in early August. Also, it’s still possible Barea could be involved with the Puerto Rico national team in the basketball world cup. “I 100 percent want to do it,” Barea said. “It’s a possibility. A couple weeks before, I’ll decide. It’s going to be hard to do, but I don’t want to close the door on it. My doctors say I should be able to do whatever I want on the court by August.”

A day after undergoing season-ending surgery to repair his torn right Achilles tendon, Dallas Mavericks guard J. J. Barea is resting comfortably. And looking forward to getting back on the court at some point next season. “His spirits are good,” coach Rick Carlisle said after Tuesday’s practice at the Lympo practice facilities. “From everything I understand the surgery went extremely well. I think everybody texted with him yesterday from the team. A lot of us are going to go see him today.”

Tim MacMahon: Mavs guard J.J. Barea is expected to be considered day-to-day after Christmas, a source told ESPN. Further testing on his lower left leg indicated that Barea’s muscle strain isn’t serious. Barea was pulled early from Wednesday’s win in Portland, his second game back after missing a month due to a calf strain, after experiencing pain in the area of his Achilles tendon. He was sent back to Dallas for further testing, which confirmed that this soreness is related to the previous calf strain, and will not be available for tonight’s road game against the Clippers.

Barea will miss Game 2 because of a groin strain that sidelined him for two of the Mavs’ last three regular-season games. He aggravated the injury on a layup during the second quarter Saturday and did not return to the game after fouling on the next possession. Williams is listed as doubtful because of a sports hernia that caused him to miss eight games late in the regular season. He performed poorly in Game 1, scoring only two points on 1-of-9 shooting in 22 minutes.
