Harrison Barnes (rest) is listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Suns.
Barnes logged 43 minutes on Sunday, so it's not at all surprising to see him hit the sidelines for the final game of the season, a game that both teams will be trying to lose. Barnes will end his second year in Dallas with averages of 18.9 points, 6.1 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.5 triples and 1.5 turnovers per game on 44.5% shooting from the field and 82.7% from the stripe.

Harrison Barnes struggled with his shot on Sunday, going 9-of-25 from the field and 1-of-3 from the stripe on his way to 21 points in Sunday's loss blowout loss to the 76ers.

Barnes couldn't get anything to drop early on, missing his first seven attempts and not getting his first bucket until the second quarter of action. He also wasn't very effective in the other areas of the box score, finishing with just two 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists, two turnovers and no defensive statistics, and after logging 43 minutes in this one, he might get rested on Tuesday.
Apr 8 - 4:23 PM

Harrison Barnes scored 17 points with four rebounds and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Pistons on Friday.

He'll probably be getting another game off at some point, and Barnes likely won't be closing out games, too.
Apr 6 - 10:54 PM

Coach Rick Carlisle said that Harrison Barnes (rest) is available to play and expected to return to the starting lineup Friday vs. the Pistons.

Barnes was rested in Wednesday's game vs. Orlando, which was the second night of a back-to-back for Dallas. Doug McDermott started on Wednesday, and will likely get bumped back to the bench on Friday.
Apr 6 - 11:45 AM

Harrison Barnes (rest) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

The Mavs are on the second leg of a back-to-back set, so Barnes will hit the sidelines for rest purposes and he'll be joined by Dirk Nowitzki (ankle), Dwight Powell (knee) and Dennis Smith Jr. (knee). With Barnes unavailable, there will be more minutes for guys like Maxi Kleber and Doug McDermott, while J.J. Barea and Yogi Ferrell should see an uptick in usage.

Harrison Barnes looked great on Sunday with a game-high 30 points on 10-of-19 FGs and 5-of-5 FTs, five 3-pointers, five assists, three rebounds and just one turnover in 36 minutes.

His efforts weren't enough to get a win vs. LeBron James and co., but they'll put a smile on fantasy owners' faces. Even better is the prospect that Barnes won't be rested down the stretch. Before the game, Dennis Smith Jr. said, "I feel like the more I learn to play with [Barnes] that would be better for the future, so we’re trying to build that chemistry as soon as possible." Head coach Rick Carlisle will have the final say, of course, but that's still an encouraging quote.
Apr 1 - 9:24 PM

Harrison Barnes said he is far more comfortable playing small forward.

The Mavs previously experimented with playing him at power forward for a stretch, but Barnes has played almost exclusively at SF the last four games and the results have been encouraging. Barnes is averaging 24.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.8 assists, while shooting 48.7 percent from the floor and 50 percent from downtown. "I love it," said Barnes. "This is an opportunity to work on playmaking and work on scoring in different ways. I'm trying to make the most of these last games."
Mar 24 - 11:19 AM

Harrison Barnes returned to action after a day of rest and had 19 points, four rebounds, two assists and a 3-pointer in 34 minutes on Tuesday.

He was given a day off on Saturday but was back out there tonight. The Mavs have nothing to play for, so fantasy owners will want to make sure Barnes is a go each time the Mavs play the rest of the way. He was solid in his 34 minutes tonight, although he didn't exactly fill up the stat sheet.
Mar 20 - 10:20 PM

Coach Rick Carlisle confirmed that Harrison Barnes (rest) will play Tuesday vs. the Pelicans.

Barnes was rested for Saturday's game vs. the Nets, which was the second night of a back-to-back for Dallas. He was fully expected to return to the lineup on Tuesday. Barnes has only missed three games all season, but the Mavs do have two more sets of back-to-backs over their final 12 games. Doug McDermott started on Saturday and will likely be bumped back to the bench.
Mar 20 - 12:54 PM

Harrison Barnes (rest) is listed as out in the game notes for Saturday's matchup against the Nets.

Saturday's game is the back end of a back-to-back for Dallas. Barnes logged 40 minutes in the Mavs overtime loss to the Raptors on Friday night, finishing with 27 points, five rebounds, and three assists. He started 67 of the Mavs first 69 games this season, but Dallas has two more sets of back-to-backs left this season, so Barnes may be rested in those contests as well. With Barnes sidelined on Saturday, as well as Dorian Finney-Smith (rest), Dwight Powell and Doug McDermott should see a significant uptick in minutes.

Mar 17 - 9:03 AM

Harrison Barnes scored 27 points with five rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer against the Raptors during a 122-115 loss on Friday.

That's impressive against the Raptors defense and it comes after a 30-point Tuesday night. Barnes hasn't been rested yet this season, but it's possible he gets the night off after so many minutes tonight. As long as he's active, he could have a huge game. For what it's worth, his minutes take a minor hit in back-to-back sets.
Mar 16 - 11:14 PM

Harrison Barnes hit 10-of-19 shots, a 3-pointer and 9-of-9 free throws for 30 points, four rebounds and four assists in 34 minutes of Tuesday's 110-97 win over the Knicks.

The Mavericks aren't very good at tanking, winning three of their last four games. And Barnes has played in 13 straight games since missing a couple in early February. The Mavs have been eliminated from the playoff hunt so they officially have nothing to play for, so owners of Barnes will just have to hope they keep running him out there the rest of the way.
Mar 13 - 10:11 PM

Harrison Barnes scored 25 points with seven rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

The best part of this is he made 10-of-11 from the line. Barnes was also getting into the paint and he's really found himself as a scorer again. Over his last five, he's averaged 22.0 points, 6.4 boards, 2.6 assists and 1.2 treys. Harry B could keep it going and he gets Houston on Sunday.
Mar 10 - 11:35 PM

Harrison Barnes scored 26 points for the second straight game on Friday vs. the Bulls, hitting 9-of-19 shots and 7-of-7 free throws.

Barnes played a team-high 34 minutes with seven rebounds, two assists and one triple. Since his 9-point dud vs. Utah he's been on fire, averaging 24.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.7 triples over his last three games. He's the safest fantasy option in Dallas going forward.
Mar 2 - 11:48 PM

Harrison Barnes scored 26 points against the Thunder on Wednesday, adding five rebounds, five assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

The scoring is nice, but the dimes were unusual. Those five dimes are the most he's had since November and they come close to the eight total dimes he had in his previous February games. Barnes also hit 2.0 treys per game this month, which is his best monthly average since joining the Mavs.
