Barea, Terry miss practice for personal reasons

By Tim MacMahon

Guards Jason Terry and J.J. Barea did not practice with the Mavericks in Phoenix this afternoon but are expected to rejoin the team after it arrives in Los Angeles.

Terry flew to Seattle to attend an aunt's funeral.

"So hard to say goodbye but we know [you're] in a better place. RIP ninnie," Terry tweeted Monday.

Barea left Phoenix to tend to a family matter in San Diego.

The Mavs took Monday off in Phoenix and begin a stretch of four games in five days with Wednesday's game against the Clippers.
