Leandro Barbosa has reportedly agreed to a two-year, $8 million deal with the Suns.
The Suns already have Eric Bledsoe, Brandon Knight and Archie Goodwin under guaranteed contracts, so Barbosa isn't likely to help many fantasy owners in 2016-17. The veteran will play for Brazil in the Olympics this season, and he'll enter training camp as little more than a backup combo-guard with 3-point range. Jul 6 - 11:45 PM

Leandro Barbosa is playing for Brazil at the Olympics.

Slow news day in Golden State, right? Jokes aside, Barbosa and teammate Anderson Varejao will represent their country this summer as both try to generate interest around the NBA in their services.
Jul 4 - 12:27 PM

Leandro Barbosa scored 11 points with one rebound and one 3-pointer on 5-of-5 from the field against the Cavs on Thursday.

He tweaked his back in the first half and looked fine in the second. Barbosa hasn't really given the Warriors many good minutes with only four in the last two games of the Thunder series. He'll likely be looking at around 9-12 minutes per game with the Warriors looking to go smaller more often.
Jun 3 - 12:02 AM

Leandro Barbosa tweaked his back in the first half on Thursday and is expected to return.

He walked back to the locker room under his own power and didn't look to be in pain. If Barbosa is out, there may be a couple extra minutes for Shaun Livingston.
Jun 2 - 10:03 PM

Leandro Barbosa scored six points with one assist, one steal and one turnover in 13 minutes against the Rockets on Monday.

He didn't play as much as expected with Shaun Livingston playing wonderful ball tonight. Barbosa won't be a fantasy option.
Apr 19 - 1:43 AM

Leandro Barbosa scored nine points with one rebound and one 3-pointer in 16 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.

Garbage time was a factor here. There might be some extra run for Barbosa with Stephen Curry (ankle) questionable for Monday. Shaun Livingston is still the better option even though Barbosa may be more likely to start sans Curry.
Apr 16 - 7:08 PM

Leandro Barbosa will be rested vs. the Spurs on Sunday.

The veteran struggled in 14 scoreless minutes on Saturday and his absence shouldn't alter any fantasy lineups. He'll likely return for the Warriors' season finale on Wednesday.
Apr 10 - 4:56 PM

Leandro Barbosa may be rested on Sunday vs. the Spurs.

He didn't look great on Saturday vs. the Grizzlies so Steve Kerr probably wants to give him a night off. He finished scoreless with one turnover in 14 minutes on Saturday and is not a fantasy asset. Ian Clark could pick up some extra run vs. the Spurs.
Apr 9 - 10:49 PM

Leandro Barbosa (shoulder) played nine minutes vs. the Nuggets, scoring five points with two rebounds and one assist.

The veteran hit 1-of-3 shots with his lone make coming from downtown. He was a DNP-CD on Monday and doesn't have appeal in any leagues while the Warriors' backcourt is healthy.
Jan 14 - 1:04 AM

Leandro Barbosa (shoulder) will play on Wednesday against the Nuggets.

He was a DNP-CD on Monday and has very little value in fantasy. Barbosa may play more on Thursday if Shaun Livingston is rested.
Jan 13 - 7:43 PM

Leandro Barbosa (shoulder) picked up a DNP-CD on Monday vs. the Heat.

He hasn't played since Christmas, but he was available to play in this one. The Warriors will likely roll with Shaun Livingston and Ian Clark as their backup guards, so Barbosa is not worth owning in most leagues. We're taking him off the injury report.
Jan 12 - 12:57 AM

Leandro Barbosa (shoulder) is active for Monday against the Heat.

He is not a complete lock to get in the rotation with Brandon Rush expected to start and Shaun Livingston likely to get most of the backup point guard minutes. Barbosa isn't a fantasy option.
Jan 11 - 8:57 PM

Leandro Barbosa (shoulder) is questionable to play against the Heat on Monday.

His shoulder injury has kept him out since Christmas. Barbosa may not even play at all because Brandon Rush, Ian Clark and Shaun Livingston are playing well.
Jan 11 - 4:37 PM

Leandro Barbosa (shoulder) will not play against the Kings on Saturday.

He's been out since his Christmas injury and is not close to a return yet. Obviously the Warriors haven't missed him much with Shaun Livingston backing up Stephen Curry and Brandon Rush really helping out on the wings.
Jan 9 - 2:17 PM

Leandro Barbosa (shoulder) is out for Friday against the Blazers.

He is likely out for a few more games. Shaun Livingston would get most of the backup point guard minutes and would even start if Stephen Curry (calf) can't go.
