Barkley took a leave of absence from his TV responsibilities last month, the day tests showed that his blood-alcohol level was at .149 when he was stopped in nearby Scottsdale, nearly twice the legal limit of .08 in Arizona.
The leave was for a minimum of several weeks, and Turner spokesman Jeff Pomeroy confirmed Monday that it will continue through All-Star weekend, when TNT usually draws some of its best ratings.
The Sports Business Journal reported Monday that Barkley would return to the air sometime after the All-Star game. TNT has not announced a timetable for his return.
