In mid-January, the 'Brazilian Blur' missed two games due to a shoulder injury. At the end of last month, he sat out another four games because of a sprained big toe. Yet, those ailments seem to be the least of his problems now.
Barbosa, who returned to the second unit in the Suns' 129-120 victory over the Atlanta Hawks Sunday, was injured drawing a charge on Chris Paul at the end of Tuesday night's first quarter.
According to the organization, Barbosa suffered a left hand fracture. While the injury won't require surgery there is no timetable for his return.
With that said, head coach Jeff Hornacek mentioned in his post-game press conference that he expects the 31-year-old to be out upwards of six weeks.
In 20 games this season, Barbosa was averaging 7.5 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game.
