Matt Barnes appeared in court today in Sacramento to face charges stemming from his arrest last week on a domestic violence issue against his fiancee Gloria Govan, per KCRA television in Sacramento:
A judge on Monday agreed to delay a decision until Oct. 18.
The district attorney is seeking more time to make a determination.
This means Barnes will likely miss time during training camp, as noted by Dexter Fishmore at Silver Screen and Roll:
This means that Barnes will likely miss at least some training-camp activities to attend court proceedings. There’s no preseason game on the 18th – the Lakers play either the Jazz or the Clippers at Staples on the 17th and then the Jazz in Anaheim on the 19th – but Barnes would have to skip the interstitial practice time, assuming the court date doesn’t get postponed further.
The Lakers begin training camp on September 25.
