The Dallas Mavericks could be relying on J.J. Barea more in Orlando. They are one of 22 teams taking part in the NBA’s restart. The Mavs are underrated, but their roster situation is in flux.

Dwight Powell, Jalen Brunson, and Courtney Lee are all recovering from surgeries that will keep them out for the rest of the season. Willie Cauley-Stein opted out of the restart. The Mavs plan on replacing him with Trey Burke. They cannot substitute for the other three unless they waive them from their roster.

That means the Mavericks plan on having only 14 healthy players in Orlando. That number includes two-way contract players Antonius Cleveland and Josh Reeves. Neither man has played many NBA minutes this season.

Replacing Cauley-Stein with Burke also means the Mavs will embrace small ball in Orlando. Expect Kristaps Porzingis and Maxi Kleber to see most of their minutes at center. Dallas will start Luka Doncic and three wings. The Mavs will be difficult to stop. Playing small could mean more Barea too. Fans can read more about the fallout here.

The Mavs are back working out at the team’s practice facility. They cannot have full team workouts yet. Players are just shooting with coaches to prepare for training camp 2.0 in Orlando in early July.

Barea has been working out. Fans caught a glimpse of his impressive beard courtesy of Brad Townsend. The Mavs legend usually rocks the facial hair but has it trimmed down more. Personally, I like the new look. Hopefully, Barea keeps it during NBA Disney.

The Dallas Mavericks will be ready on July 31. Expect more J.J. Barea as they try to make a deep playoff run. Hopefully, the NBA navigates the many roadblocks and everything runs smoothly. If it does, fans are in for a treat in Orlando.
