Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban lent guard J.J. Barea the team's plane to transport food, water and supplies to his native Puerto Rico to aid in the Hurricane Maria recovery.

Barea left Monday afternoon and plans to return Tuesday night, missing the first day of Mavs training camp.

"That's a situation that he's got to take care of," coach Rick Carlisle said. "Mark gave him our team plane. They loaded up a bunch of stuff, supplies, etc., to take over to Puerto Rico, and they're going to turn around and come back. He's going to take his mom and grandmother back with him, and my understanding is his dad is going to stay over there and slug it out with all of the recovery efforts."

Barea, the NBA's only active player who is a native Puerto Rican, did not have any communication with his parents until Sunday. He quickly made plans for his trip home after communicating with family and figuring out where help was needed most.
