Barry (groin) will be on the pitch for Wednesday's match against Sunderland.

Barry's return should help solidify the Everton midfield that is at it is best when he is paired with James McCarthy. The Toffees will be up against a Sunderland side fighting to stay out of the relegation zone, so the veteran will need to be in top form and push the pace from the back.

Barry (groin) will once again face a late fitness test prior to Wednesday's match against Sunderland.

Manager Roberto Martinez seemed confident that Barry would be available for the team's trip to the Stadium of Light. The veteran is a calming presence in the Everton midfield while not being afraid to draw a yellow card in order to keep opponents off the break. If he is cleared to play, Barry will resume his defensive partnership with James McCarthy that has been one of the few bright spots this season.

Barry (groin) is a late fitness test for Saturday's match against Leicester City.

Everton has been hit hard by the injury bug this season and the 35-year-old has been dragged down over the past six weeks as well. After starting the first 26 matches, Barry's missed four of the past eight and played just one minute of another. The holding midfielder finally seems to be showing some signs of his age, having played nearly 600 Premier League matches to date throughout his career.

Barry (groin) is out for Saturday's match against Bournemouth.

The holding midfielder turned in a 45 minute shift in the team's last Premier League math, but missed the FA Cup semifinal against Manchester United. The 35-year-old aims to return to the squad for the next match at Leicester City on May 7.

Barry was sent off in the 87th minute of Saturday's FA Cup tie against Chelsea for receiving a second yellow card.

Barry grabbed the start after he recovered on time from his illness but he'll have to miss more time now with this new issue. He's not a major fantasy factor, however playing as a holding midfielder, and won't be sorely missed in most formats.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Barry tallied an assist in Monday's 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace.

The holding midfielder rarely finds himself in a position to pick up goals or assists, but provided an inch perfect ball into the boot of Romelu Lukaku who calmly finished from just outside the goal mouth to equalize in the 81st minute. Barry had three assists and no goals in 44 matches across all competitions and is a valuable piece to the Toffees, but not so much to fantasy teams, this assist notwithstanding.

Barry was issued two yellow cards and was sent off in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Arsenal.

While both were certainly bookable offenses, Barry was perhaps unlucky to see red in the 94th minute. With the two yellow cards, Barry is facing a suspension for the team's next match against Norwich City. The 34-year-old came into the match having been issued two yellow cards this season after picking up 10 in Premier League play last season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Barry grabbed the lone assist in the 1-0 win over Southampton Saturday.

Barry was in a good position off a corner and sent in a short pass in the middle of the box that was simply poked in by Phil Jagielka. Barry sits in the top-10 in total passes with over 1600 and passes per game with over 60 per match. Barry hasn't provided much in goals or assists, but is important as anyone on this Everton team defending and controlling the midfield. Look for Barry to continue to start next Saturday when Everton take on Swansea City.
