Harrison Barnes said it was "great" to be able to prove he could be a consistent scoring threat for the Mavs this past season.
"I can be consistent. That was the big knock on me when I first got here," said Barnes. "You know, I could be good for a night or maybe a couple of games, but over the course of 10-30 games that would be difficult. To finally be able to do that over the course of a season was great." Barnes scored a career-high 19.2 points per game during his first year in Dallas to go with averages of 5.0 boards, 1.5 dimes and 1.0 3-pointer per contest, which was good enough for seventh round value in standard 9-cat leagues. He'll make for a solid mid-round pick in next year's drafts. May 24 - 11:15 AM

Harrison Barnes (rest) will not play on Wednesday against the Grizzlies.

The Mavs will rest their max guy on both ends of a back-to-back set. Barnes may have surpassed national expectations as the go-to scorer with some serious volume as an isolation guy. Dwight Powell, Nicolas Brussino and Dorian Finney-Smith figure to take on most of Harry B's minutes.
Apr 12 - 6:52 PM

Harrison Barnes and Wesley Matthews will rest on Tuesday vs. the Nuggets.

Dallas is looking for their fifth straight loss as the tank rolls on. The Mavericks said this morning that everyone except for Seth Curry (shoulder) would be "available," so this decision was likely made in the last hour or so. Barnes or Matthews aren't locks to play in the season finale on Wednesday. The Mavs will start Yogi Ferrell, J.J. Barea, Dorian Finney-Smith, Dirk Nowitzki and Nerlens Noel.
Apr 11 - 8:38 PM

Harrison Barnes is "available" to play off the bench on Tuesday vs. Denver, but he likely won't see any action.

Barnes isn't starting after getting a rest day on Sunday, but it sounds like he's getting another night off -- he wasn't even warming up with the team. Most fantasy owners can't trust any player in Dallas for the final two games.
Apr 11 - 8:35 PM

Harrison Barnes (rest) will not play Sunday vs. the Suns.

Rick Carlisle said that Barnes came to him and decided to take a game off, but he'll be back in action for Tuesday's home game against the Nuggets. With Barnes on the shelf, Nicolas Brussino and Dorian Finney-Smith should pick up most of his minutes, and Nerlens Noel should see some increased opportunity on offense.

Harrison Barnes (rest) is listed as out in the game notes against the Suns on Saturday.

Game notes aren't exactly gospel, but this is definitely noteworthy. According to the notes, Barnes is going to be with the team while J.J. Barea (rest) will not be. With Barnes likely out, Nicolas Brussino should be getting some serious run. Coach Rick Carlisle has talked him up and wants him to play different positions.
Apr 8 - 9:33 PM

Harrison Barnes played 18 minutes vs. the Spurs on Friday with eight points, one rebound, one assist and one triple.

Barnes said he wants to play in all 82 games this season, so the Mavs are just going to reduce his workload instead of giving him a maintenance day -- he didn't even play in the second half tonight. He will be tough to trust along with the other veterans in Dallas as the tank rolls on.
Apr 7 - 11:59 PM

Harrison Barnes had 15 points, four rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer and three turnovers during Wednesday's game vs. the Clippers.

Barnes was a candidate for rest tonight but he wound up playing 35 minutes in his usual role as a starter. "I don't think there's anything that's going to stop me from playing all 82, barring injury," he said prior to tonight's game. With Dallas officially eliminated from playoff contention, Barnes' owners couldn't ask for more.
Apr 6 - 1:33 AM

Harrison Barnes is expected to play Wednesday against the Clippers.

The Mavs could wind up sitting Dirk Nowitzki (Achilles), Seth Curry, J.J. Barea and Devin Harris, but this report says Barnes will be active. This is the late game of the day, so there is still at least some risk Barnes isn't out there. Barnes also wants to play in 82 games, so that helps his case, as well.
Apr 5 - 3:45 PM

Harrison Barnes said he has no intention to rest any games moving forward.

"I don't think there's anything that's going to stop me from playing all 82, barring injury," he said. This is awesome news for his fantasy owners, and it sounds like he's a lock to play on Wednesday vs. the Clippers on the second night of a back-to-back set. He scored just 11 points on 4-of-10 shooting with two rebounds, one assist and one triple in 28 minutes vs. the Kings on Tuesday, but expect him to bounce back vs. the Clippers.
Apr 5 - 1:44 AM

Harrison Barnes isn't on the injury report for Tuesday's game vs. the Kings.

There was a chance that he could've been rested along with Dirk Nowtizki, Wes Matthews and Seth Curry, but he will give it a go tonight. Coach Rick Carlisle said on Sunday that he would rest his veterans during back-to-back sets moving forward, but he added that it's "unlikely" the Mavs would rest Barnes if he desires to play all 82 games. If he can stay healthy, expect him to keep playing.
Apr 4 - 9:03 PM

Harrison Barnes and J.J. Barea could be rested Tuesday vs. Sacramento.

Rick Carlisle said on Sunday that he would rest his veterans on back-to-back sets to close out the year, so there's a good chance these guys will be unavailable for tonight's game. Dorian Finney-Smith would draw the start sans Barnes, and if Barea joins him on the sidelines, that would open up a ton of minutes for Yogi Ferrell and Devin Harris.

Harrison Barnes lit up the Bucks for a team-high 31 points on Sunday, making 9-of-13 field goals and 10-of-10 free throws in 39 minutes of action.

Barnes sank three 3-pointers, and the scoring made up for a lack of supporting stats tonight -- he added just two rebounds and one steal with three turnovers. Rick Carlisle might be resting his veterans occasionally in the Mavs' final games, but he's still "going to keep looking for opportunities to get our young guys some time." Barnes, who is 24 years old, should be safe.
Apr 2 - 7:49 PM

Harrison Barnes scored eight points with four rebounds, one assist and two steals against the Grizzlies on Friday.

He's had a rough month and all his isolation plays have come back to bite him. Coach Rick Carlisle said there could be rest coming for the veterans, so Barnes' fantasy owners will have to see if he's included in that group. Considering he isn't playing well, it's not crazy to drop him.
Apr 1 - 12:35 AM

Harrison Barnes scored 23 points during a 94-86 loss to the Raptors on Saturday, adding seven rebounds, two assists, three steals and no turnovers.

March has been a rough month for Harry B, but now he's got two good ones in a row under his belt. This month, he has his worst scoring average and efficiency compared to other full months. He's still a must-start player and has been much better than expected in reality after his big contract. The Mavs trail the Nuggets by 4.0 games.
