Now Barton will be out for a while.
He suffered a strained hamstring against the Golden State Warriors, pulling up on a first-quarter drive and instantly getting to the sidelines and going down in pain. On the ESPN broadcast, coach Mike Malone said Barton told him he heard something “pop.”
There is no timeline for Barton’s return, but it could be a little bit.
Malone called Will Barton’s hamstring strain “significant” and said he doesn’t expect him back for the “foreseeable future.”
