The problems with Barton’s knee have been causing soreness in other part of his body, Singer adds. He will get a second opinion to try to find relief from the pain.
Barton is listed as out indefinitely with “right knee soreness,” and his condition hasn’t changed since he appeared in a scrimmage July 27. He has been very frustrated by the lack of progress, tweets Katy Winge of Altitude TV. Rookie Michael Porter Jr. has been filling his spot in the starting lineup.
Barton averaged 15.1 points and 6.3 rebounds in 58 games before the hiatus.
