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. Dec 26 - 1:39 AM

Date:

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.

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.
Dec 19 - 1:59 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.
Dec 16 - 1:27 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.
Dec 15 - 2:32 PM

Harrison Barnes is visiting the dentist to get his teeth fixed on Monday.

Barnes also needed two stitches in his mouth, and the exact dental work he'll need is to be determined when he goes in on Monday. We'll mark him sidelined considering he needs a dental procedure, but it wouldn't be surprising if he doesn't miss any time. He returned to action on Sunday after getting the stitches.
Dec 15 - 10:34 AM

Harrison Barnes finished Sunday's overtime win in New Orleans with only two points on 1-of-3 shooting, in addition to four rebounds and two assists in 29 minutes.

Barnes has quietly been a top-100 value this season (even higher in nine-cat leagues) and this off-game isn't worth fretting over for fantasy purposes. The return of David Lee is a mild concern, as Lee could steal a few minutes from Barnes, but the minor dent in playing time shouldn't prevent him from being a dependable option.
Dec 14 - 9:18 PM

Harrison Barnes suffered a laceration to his mouth during Sunday's game that required two stitches, and he has since returned.

He appears to be fine and owners should have no concerns moving forward. Barnes has improved tremendously from last season and has been a key part of the Warriors this season, so keep him active in all lineups.
Dec 14 - 7:07 PM

Harrison Barnes was feeling it on Wednesday, hitting 7-of-9 shots and three 3-pointers on his way to 20 points, six rebounds, two assists and two steals in a win over the Rockets.

This was GSW's 14th straight win and they're 19-2 on the season. Barnes scored just four points in his previous game, but is still averaging 13.2 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 1.2 3-pointers on 63 percent shooting over his last five games. He got loose tonight with Pat Beverley hassling Stephen Curry, so don't expect him to score like this on a nightly basis.
Dec 11 - 1:56 AM

Harrison Barnes scored four points on 2-of-5 shooting with six rebounds and one steal over 29 minutes in Monday's blowout win over the Wolves.

Barnes has been worth owning in standard leagues and has a very nice thing going right now starting at small forward and getting some stretch four action with the twos. David Lee's return is going to be a hassle, but the Warriors aren't going to stick their heads in the sand by overvaluing Lee like past administrations. If Barnes keeps it up and Lee plays like he has the last two years, it will be Barnes that maintains the upper hand.
Dec 9 - 1:20 AM

Harrison Barnes' numbers are trending up this season, and part of that is due to the system that Steve Kerr is running.

Barnes was asked to be a scorer off the bench under Mark Jackson, and he was placed in a lot of isolation situations, not a particular strength of Barnes. "To get me with the ball moving, getting me in different spots, playing off other people, that’s more of a strength for me right now. Going straight isos, that wasn’t a strength for me." Barnes value will take a hit upon the impending return of David Lee, but until then, he'll be worth owning in standard leagues.
Dec 5 - 10:35 AM

Harrison Barnes double-doubled against the Pelicans on Thursday with 17 points, 10 rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 40 minutes.

He put up an absurd plus-36 in the plus-minus stat and the Warriors just dominated the Pelicans down the stretch. Barnes has been flirting with top-100 value, but his minutes and shots should take a dip once David Lee (hamstring) comes back.
Dec 5 - 1:23 AM

Harrison Barnes recorded his second double-double of the season on Tuesday with 14 points, one 3-pointer, 12 rebounds, one assist and one steal in a thrilling win over the Magic.

Barnes made 5-of-9 shots and didn't turn the ball over in 33 minutes of action, and he continues to play with poise and maturity in a starting role. He's averaging a mere 1.0 turnovers per game and is among the top-30 in True Shooting percentage, and fantasy owners should continue to deploy Barnes while watching closely to see how David Lee's return impacts his playing time.
Dec 3 - 1:12 AM

Harrison Barnes was held scoreless for the first time all season in Sunday's win vs. the Thunder, missing all five of his shots while adding eight rebounds, two assists and one steal.

Barnes was in some foul trouble, which didn't help his cause, and the Thunder have been surprisingly stingy vs. opposing SFs all season. We're not reading too much into this dud, in other words, as Barnes was coming off a six-game streak of double-digit scoring.
