MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — 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 on Wednesday that his sprained left ankle is “good to go.”

He has missed 10 of the last 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 and Martell Webster also recently returned from injuries.
