According to Tim MacMahon of the ESPN, J.J Barea will not play for Puerto Rico in the upcoming Basketball World Cup.

The 35-year-old guard has been recovering from a ruptured Achilles he suffered in January and will not be 100% ready to play in September.

The Dallas Mavericks re-signed Barea, who is expected to be back on time for next season, to an one-year, minimum deal.
