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.
