J.J. Barea may have just suffered a serious injury.

The Mavericks veteran guard had to be carried off the floor in Dallas' matchup with the Timberwolves after suffering what appeared to be a leg injury.

Barea has come off of the bench almost exclusively in his career with the Mavericks, but he has been a mainstay in the team's lineup for years and a key player coming on in relief.

He is averaging 10.8 points and 5.5 assists in 37 games this year (zero starts) while playing just 19.7 minutes per game.
