Charles Barkley is off punishment at TNT. The network has ended his time out and the analyst will return to his “NBA on TNT” gig this week, Turner Sports announced Tuesday.

The former NBA star had been on a forced leave since January after a drunken driving arrest in Arizona.

Turner Sports said Barkley would be in the studio for “Inside the NBA,” which features the former rebound king 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.”

Earlier this week, Barkley picked up another TV appearance with the announcement that The Golf Channel would have Barkley as a guest on its new reality series “The Haney Project.” As previously reported, Barkley will get his golf swing analyzed by Hank Haney, a noted golf instructor.
