Barea will play tonight vs Pacers

J.J. Barea claims his ankle is fine and is cleared to play tonight against the Pacers. I do believe this means they'll have to leave a guy off the roster; unless Darko is still "sick". If Darko is ready to go, is Miller going to get scratched?

Full strength baby!

MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota Timberwolves point guard J.J. Barea says he'll be back on the court against Indiana.

Barea said before the Timberwolves played the Pacers Wednesday that his sprained left ankle is "good to go."

He has missed 10 of the past 11 games and appeared in only six of 21 games this season. He previously had a strained left hamstring.

Barea is backing up Ricky Rubio and Luke Ridnour in his first season with Minnesota after winning the NBA title with Dallas last year.

Barea says he'll probably be limited to six- or seven-minute stretches and if he gets tired he'll simply ask for a sub.

The Timberwolves are a lot healthier than they were a few weeks ago. Michael Beasley andMartell Webster also recently returned from injuries.
