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.
Fri, Dec 26, 2014 01:39:00 AM

Harrison Barnes finished Tuesday's surprising loss to the Lakers with five points on 2-of-6 shooting, four rebounds and one block in 28 minutes.

He made one 3-pointer and he's likely to maintain 12-team fantasy value while starting for Golden State, but owners should keep a close eye on his role now that David Lee is healthy. The Warriors only have one more game this week and they're one of 14 teams that play only three times in Week 10, so Barnes' owners should brace themselves for limited production until the New Year.
Wed, Dec 24, 2014 01:16:00 AM

Harrison Barnes will have a minor procedure on his nose on Friday, but doesn't expect to miss time.

He played well against the Thunder on Thursday with 12 points, seven rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes. Barnes is a low-end player to hold in standard leagues.
Fri, Dec 19, 2014 01:59:00 AM

Harrison Barnes played through his facial injury on Tuesday wearing a mask, and finished with eight points, 11 rebounds, a block and a 3-pointer as the Warriors saw their 16-game winning streak come to a halt in Memphis.

Barnes likely would have fared better without the obtrusive mask, but he was effective while helping to make up for the loss of Andrew Bogut. It looks like Barnes dodged a bullet with this injury and is still a guy we're in favor of owning across the board right now.

Harrison Barnes (mouth) will play against the Grizzlies on Tuesday.

Barnes will play with a generic protective mask after receiving two stitches to his mouth and said that he will get fitted for a custom mask once the Warriors return home. Fantasy owners can feel free to start Barnes as they normally would, while Andre Iguodala misses out on the value boost he would've had if Barnes missed Tuesday's game.
Tue, Dec 16, 2014 01:27:00 PM

Harrison Barnes (mouth) is questionable to play against the Grizzlies on Tuesday, but coach Steve Kerr said he'd be shocked if Barnes doesn't play.

He had a visit to the dentist on Monday and needed two stitches to his mouth, but chances are he'll be able to play. The Warriors only have two games this week, so Barnes isn't an option in weekly leagues. Andre Iguodala would benefit sans Barnes.
