If you follow Matt Barnes on Twitter, you’d know he gives the fans the current status on his knee. He believes he’s ready to participate in some running drills next week.

He said he’s anxious to get back, but he doesn’t want to jeopardize himself by coming back too early:

“There’s a stretch run coming up. I want to be back and stay there. I don’t want to be back too early and then have to take a few steps back.”

Barnes has made enough progress so far to begin working on the elliptical machine and continual weight lifting. He is expected to return a short time after the All-Star break.

      • daboss1848

        Come on now hack. Luke is fools gold, we all know that.

        • daboss1848

          hack, u cant call me hack – you’ll confuse ppl, including me.

          • dabοss1848

            seems to me the hacker(s) don’t want barnes back – i’ll embrace his return.

    • daboss1848

      i officially confused – i embrace all laker players. What u hacks dont understand is that It is possible to embrace one without disrespecting another. That’ll come with age, maturity, edumacation, open-mindedness, and brain development.

      • dabοss1848

        considering you’ve admitted to already being confused, seems like the brain development, maturity, etc still have yet to arrive for you, mr/mrs. hack.

        • daboss1848

          my confusion stems from ur lack of comprehension and tangential chatter – i thought we made strides, but u regress . . .

    • daboss1848

      y do i talk to myself?! . . . (ample security settings)
