Harrison Barnes played 23 minutes during Tuesday's road loss in New Orleans, scoring only seven points with one rebound, one assist, one steal and one block.
Andre Iguodala notched seven points and seven boards in 28 minutes off the bench, and Barnes simply isn't reliable when the Warriors are at full strength. Standard-league owners should avoid him unless/until Steve Kerr starts resting key players. Apr 7 - 10:57 PM

Harrison Barnes was quiet in 28 minutes vs. the Spurs on Sunday, posting four points on 2-of-7 shooting, two rebounds and one block in a 92-107 road loss.

In eight games since Mar. 21, Barnes is now averaging 8.3 points on 40.7 percent shooting, with 0.9 threes, 5.6 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.3 steals. He's a more enticing fantasy option when the Warriors rest players like Draymond Green, Klay Thompson or Andre Iguodala, but he's obviously had a tough slog lately.
Apr 5 - 9:24 PM

Harrison Barnes hit a game-winning layup with less than one second on the clock to beat the Suns 107-106 on Thursday, finishing with four points, three rebounds and three assists in 24 minutes.

It was actually one of his worst games of the season before the shot. He really struggled in switching on picks and made just 2-of-8 from the field. Barnes could rest on Saturday or Sunday, so fantasy owners might want to be careful.
Apr 3 - 1:56 AM

Harrison Barnes finished Tuesday's feisty 110-106 win in L.A. with only one point, seven rebounds and two assists, shooting 0-of-7 from the field in 25 minutes.

This marks the third time all season that Barnes has gone without a field goal, and it's even more disappointing since Draymond Green (shin, rest) was unavailable tonight. Barnes has three games remaining this week and could see his role increase if Golden State rests key players, particularly during their back-to-back set this weekend. He's a viable late-round option despite tonight's dud.
Apr 1 - 1:55 AM

Harrison Barnes scored three points on 1-of-2 shooting (including a trey) with five rebounds, two assists and two steals in 24 minutes on Monday against the Grizzlies.

Barnes is riding the coattails of a few big games this past week and altogether he's been productive enough over that span to be worth owning. Obviously he's a shaky asset but Andre Iguodala is already ruled out for Saturday's game and with four games next week he could be worth sticking into lineups if the Dubs rest guys.
Mar 28 - 2:01 AM

Harrison Barnes scored a team-high 22 points in the Warriors' easy 112-96 win over the Pelicans on Friday, hitting 9-of-13 shots (including a three) with one rebound and one steal in 20 minutes.

It's not a perfect line but nobody on the Warriors' side had one of those tonight with Steve Kerr emptying the bench liberally. Barnes has now hit 20 of his last 26 field goal attempts and he fits the profile of a guy that the Dubs will rely on down the stretch as they rest guys. Factor in the Warriors' solid schedule and he is one more solid outing away from being a must-own player, so consider getting ahead of the curve.
Mar 21 - 3:52 AM

Harrison Barnes hit 11-of-13 shots and two 3-pointers for a season-high 25 points, four rebounds and a steal in Wednesday's lopsided win over the Hawks.

Barnes had scored 11 and eight points in each of his previous two games, but he couldn't miss tonight. He's a marginal deep-league play at this point, but really came through for those of you that used him tonight. He could go on a run with Klay Thompson out for the next week or so with a sprained ankle.
Mar 19 - 2:20 AM

Harrison Barnes scored just 10 points on 3-of-12 shooting Sunday, adding eight rebounds, one 3-pointer, three steals and one turnover through 34 minutes of action.

Consistency continues to be a problem with Barnes, but his steady contributions in 3-pointers, steals, and rebounds make him worth owning in deeper leagues.
Mar 8 - 7:17 PM

Harrison Barnes scored six points on 2-of-7 shooting (including a three) with six rebounds and three steals in Monday's loss to the Nets.

Barnes has probably been added and dropped a whole bunch this season in your 12-team standard league, though his 1.5 turnovers per game gives him a bit more value in 9-cat formats.
Mar 2 - 11:09 PM

Harrison Barnes is averaging career-high marks in points (10.4), rebounds (5.7), field goal shooting (50.6 percent) and three-point shooting (43.4 percent) this season.

"I sensed that he was not thrilled and not happy," Steve Kerr said when asked about Barnes' role last season. "It happens to everybody generally, so you have to respond, and it was my job as a coach to help him get his confidence back." Now back with the starting lineup this season, Barnes is thriving alongside the Splash Bros. Most interestingly, Kerr revealed that he could use Barnes at power forward more often going forward. "I think that's when we're the most dynamic and the most difficult to deal with," Kerr added.
Feb 23 - 10:36 AM

Harrison Barnes hit 4-of-8 shots and two 3-pointers for 11 points and five rebounds in 28 minutes and another start for the Warriors.

He's one of the league's most accurate 3-point shooters, but has been pretty inconsistent throughout the season. To that point, he's scored between 10 and 18 points in three of his last five games, but has also scored just two and four points in the other two games during that stretch. He's not a bad player to have at the end of your bench right now, but is only worth using in a four-game week in weekly leagues right now.
Jan 22 - 1:43 AM

Harrison Barnes scored 18 points on 6-of-13 shooting (including four threes) with six rebounds, two assists and one steal over 40 minutes in Friday's loss to the Thunder.

Barnes scored a season-high 23 points (aided by garbage time) against the Thunder on January 6, and that's the last we've heard from Barnes. With Andre Iguodala out and inconsistent numbers lately, owners shouldn't be running to the wire after this one.
Jan 17 - 12:36 AM

Harrison Barnes showed signs of life in Monday's blowout win over the Thunder, scoring a season-high 23 points on 8-of-14 shooting (including five threes) with seven rebounds and no steals or blocks in 36 minutes.

Barnes did well to take advantage of the situation but the Warriors are too deep and his role is too tenuous to read too much into this. The outing keeps him in the discussion for 12-team ownership but a lack of upside plagues his outlook.
Jan 6 - 3:13 AM

Harrison Barnes hit rock bottom in Friday's win, scoring just two points with five rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes.

It looks like Barnes' run of low-end value is coming to an end now that the team is more or less at full strength aside from Andrew Bogut. With low upside, owners should have no problem moving on in 12-14 team formats.
Jan 3 - 3:24 AM

Harrison Barnes bounced back on Thursday with 12 points, 13 rebounds, three assists, two steals and one turnover against the Clippers.

His minutes did take a mild hit in David Lee's first two games back on Monday and Tuesday, but not tonight. Barnes is starting to come back to Earth over his last three, failing to shoot over 39 percent from the field in any of those games. His fantasy owners should probably expect him to continue to slide.
