Harrison Barnes is not sure just how long he'll be sidelined with his sprained left ankle.
"I'm not quite sure, I'm just going to kind of see how it goes," Barnes said. "I'm not going to try to rush it. We want to make sure when I come back, it's 100 percent, and there's not any lingering pain or effects." Barnes was spotted on crutches on Saturday, so he's obviously not close to making a return. Brandon Rush will have another opportunity to start on Monday when the Dubs take on the Jazz, with Andre Iguodala and Leandro Barbosa likely seeing a slight bump in minutes. Nov 29 - 3:54 PM

Warriors coach Luke Walton said that he doesn't know when Harrison Barnes (ankle) will be able to return.

"It’s all speculation. It could be a few weeks. It could be a week," Walton said. "We’re not going to rush him back because we want to be healthy for later in the season and we don’t want lingering injures, so we’ll have him take his time." The Warriors are 18-0 on the season, so they likely won't bring him back until he is 100 percent. Brandon Rush started for Barnes on Saturday and scored 16 points in 19 minutes, while Andre Iguodala could also get a nice boost until Barnes is able to return.
Nov 29 - 9:42 AM

Harrison Barnes (ankle) will not play against the Kings on Saturday and Brandon Rush will start.

He rolled his ankle on Friday and could miss more games. With Barnes out, we should see more Andre Iguodala and even more Leandro Barbosa in the second unit. Rush is still too risky to use in most cases. The other members of the first unit may shoot more, too.
Nov 28 - 8:48 PM

Harrison Barnes (ankle) is listed as doubtful to play against the Kings on Saturday.

He suffered his ankle sprain on Friday night and did not return. The Warriors will likely be calling on Andre Iguodala to fill in and he should have a chance for a nice line tonight. Leandro Barbosa is also coming off a terrific game and would get more run, too.
Nov 28 - 2:48 PM

Harrison Barnes has been diagnosed with a sprained left ankle and he will not return to Friday's game against the Suns.

Harrison will finish Friday's game with seven points, seven boards and two steals in 21 minutes. The severity of the injury is not currently known, but with the Dubs set to play again on Saturday vs. Sacramento, we'll be considering Barnes doubtful for that one. Andre Iguodala will likely start if Harrison is unable to give it a go on Saturday, with Leandro Barbosa and Shaun Livingston seeing a slight uptick in minutes. If there's a positive here it's that X-rays came back negative and this is the first ankle injury Barnes has suffered over his four-year NBA career.

Harrison Barnes hit a dagger 3-pointer on Friday against the Bulls, finishing with 20 points, nine rebounds, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

He's your league leader in offensive rating (qualifiers) with his 115.8. Barnes has increased his playing time three minutes per game and his usage rate 3.1 from last year, which is extremely impressive. Plus, his efficiency is also up, too. Harry B is now putting up fifth-round value on the season and is trending up.
Nov 21 - 4:56 AM

Harrison Barnes scored 21 points with seven rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Clippers on Thursday.

He's been special as a stretch four all season. Barnes has fallen off in a big way as a 3-point shooter from his 40.5 percent from deep last year, but he's dominating on mid-range and around the basket. The increase in usage rate has launched him to sixth-round value on the year. He's one of the best third or fourth options in the NBA.
Nov 20 - 2:15 AM

Harrison Barnes scored 14 points with four rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes on Thursday.

His usage rate is starting to climb and he gets some of the easiest shots in the NBA. Barnes is getting a lot of minutes in different spots in the lineup and he's doing more than just scoring, making him a mid-round player right now. He probably won't be winning any leagues, but Barnes is worth owning in standard leagues.
Nov 12 - 11:17 PM

Harrison Barnes scored 19 points against the Grizzlies on Wednesday, adding four rebounds, three assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

The Warriors even played him at center in two different lineup combinations. Barnes has been hovering around 30 minutes all season, averaging 12.8 points, 5.3 boards, 2.6 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.9 treys in his previous eight games, which puts him as a seventh-round player right now. He could hold that value and getting minutes at center tonight certainly isn't a bad thing.
Nov 11 - 11:44 PM

Harrison Barnes scored 21 points on 8-of-13 shooting (including two threes) with five rebounds and one steal in Friday's blowout win over the Nuggets.

It's hard to take Barnes seriously as the Warriors crush teams every night out and the garbage time blurs everything. But nonetheless Barnes has been a solid mid-round value with averages of 12.8 points, 0.8 threes, 6.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists and marks of 48.3 percent from the field and 94.1 percent from the line. The shooting will come back down to Earth but he deserves a place on rosters as a projected late-round asset.
Nov 7 - 2:21 AM

Harrison Barnes scored 10 points in the fourth quarter of Wednesday's win over the Clippers.

Barnes continued his strong season on Wednesday night and came up big for the Warriors in the fourth quarter on Wednesday. "They seemed like the first shots I’ve made all year," said Barnes. "Man, that was just a huge weight off the shoulders. Just to one get in there and get something going from there, it was good." Barnes' fantasy upside is limited as he's not a top scoring option for the Warriors, but he's still worth a roster spot in standard fantasy leagues.
Nov 5 - 1:09 PM

Harrison Barnes made 5-of-8 from the field and all five free throws for 17 points with nine rebounds, three assists and one block in 36 minutes against the Clippers on Wednesday.

He was terrific and his season is off to a fine start. Barnes is averaging 11.2 points, 6.6 boards, 2.8 assists, 0.4 steals and 0.6 treys. He will never have a big upside as long as Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry are healthy, so he's not a great fantasy guy.
Nov 5 - 3:03 AM

Harrison Barnes and the Warriors will not come to terms on an extension before the Nov. 2 deadline, meaning he will be a restricted free agent when the 2015-16 season concludes.

Barnes is looking from some massive money, and while he has taken some steps in his development each season, the Dubs don't seem willing to go much higher than the initial four-year, $64 offer they put on the table back in September. Barnes will try and prove his worth this season, but as a fifth option on offense, he's not looking like a strong play in standard fantasy leagues.
Oct 27 - 2:35 PM

Warriors owner Joe Lacob was noncommittal about potential contract extensions for Harrison Barnes and Festus Ezeli.

"I know both players are wanted," Lacob said. "I'm sure we'll make very good offers to both of them that make sense for us to keep them. If it happens, it happens. If it doesn't, that's fine, too." It's hard to see either signing a deal unless the Warriors put their best offer on the table before November 2, and that's unlikely to happen. Each are on course to become restricted free agents in the offseason.
Oct 23 - 8:32 PM

Harrison Barnes hit 9-of-12 shots and five 3-pointers for 23 points, five rebounds and four assists in Thursday's 136-97 romp over the Lakers.

He actually played just as well as teammates Steph Curry and Klay Thompson, and was better than Draymond Green tonight. Of course, it's the preseason, so there's no need to get too excited about this line. Barnes, Curry and Klay combined to hit 27-of-36 shots, propelling the Warriors to a 55 percent shooting night as a team. Barnes was taken in Round 14 of our most recent expert draft and despite tonight's big line, should not be taken until the later rounds of your draft. He'll split time with Andre Iguodala this season, but could end up being a nice value pick in your draft.
