NEW YORK -- "NBA on TNT" analyst Charles Barkley, on leave since January after a drunken driving arrest in Arizona, will return this week.
Turner Sports said Tuesday that Barkley would be in the studio for "Inside the NBA," which features Barkley as well as host Ernie Johnson and analyst Kevin Smith.
"From the beginning, Charles recognized that he used poor judgment. He took full responsibility and apologized for his actions," Turner Sports president David Levy said in a statement. "We look forward to having him back in the studio."
