Leandro Barbosa scored 22 points in Brazil's 128-65 win over Egypt at the World Cup of Basketball on Thursday.

Barbosa played 22 minutes off the bench for Team Brazil and went 8-for-9 from the field on his way to posting 22 points, two rebounds, five assists, and four steals. The 31-year-old recently signed with the Golden State Warriors, but won't see enough playing time to make a dent in standard fantasy leagues.

Warriors sign G Leandro Barbosa.

Barbosa's deal with be for one year at the veteran minimum as he joins his fifth NBA team. The 31-year-old averaged 7.5 points, 1.9 rebounds, and 1.6 assists in 20 games with the Suns last season, so his fantasy value is virtually non-existent as a role player for the Warriors.

Free agent Leandro Barbosa, who is playing for Brazil in the FIBA World Cup, is "one of several veterans the Heat are considering."

No deal is imminent and teams are probably content to watch Barbosa throughout the World Cup before committing any guaranteed salary to the 31-year-old guard, especially since he's coming off another injury-plagued season.
Aug 19 - 5:19 PM

Leandro Barbosa hopes to use the FIBA World Cup to prove that he is healthy, and elevate his value as a free agent.

"I don’t know what owners think about the World Cup, but hopefully I do a great job over there and a team sees," Barbosa said. "I feel healthy and my body is feeling healthy. If I have free agency in my mind, I won’t be able to be myself on the court. Hopefully, I sign a contract and I’ll be happy." Barbosa's best days are behind him, so even if he strikes a deal with a team this offseason, he’s not someone to target in standard leagues.

Leandro Barbosa has ditched the cast on his hand in favor of a brace.

It's a sign of tangible progress for the artist formerly known as the Brazilian Blur. Barbosa was slapped with a 4-6 week table after fracturing his hand in early March and is now targeting the playoffs for his return. He won't travel with the Suns to Portland Friday.
Apr 2 - 8:25 PM

Leandro Barbosa (hand fracture) will miss approximately 4-6 weeks but he will not require surgery.

Barbosa could return for the end of the regular season and the playoffs, but his injury is a tough break for a Suns team just half a game ahead of the Grizzlies for the eighth seed out West. Ish Smith played more minutes in his absence on Tuesday, but he's not a promising long-term pickup with Eric Bledsoe (knee) possibly returning this week.
Mar 5 - 9:28 AM

Leandro Barbosa suffered a left hand fracture against the Clippers on Tuesday, according to the Suns broadcast.

He hurt his hand early in the game and X-rays confirmed Barbosa's injury. There have been metacarpal breaks all over the place this season and Barbosa may also be dealing with that issue. He'll likely miss a month and the Suns will have to go on without him. Ish Smith has stepped up for the Suns sans LB.
Mar 4 - 10:41 PM

Leandro Barbosa (toe) returned to action on Sunday with seven points and two assists in 13 minutes off the Suns' bench.

He wound up missing five games with his injury, and his return gives Phoenix another fleet-footed guard to help relieve Goran Dragic and Ish Smith. The Suns have a tough, road-heavy schedule the rest of the regular season, but they hold a 1 1/2 game lead over Memphis for a playoff spot and should soon get a boost with Eric Bledsoe (knee) playing 5-on-5 and seemingly on the verge of a return.
Mar 3 - 9:09 AM

Leandro Barbosa (toe) is expected to play Friday.

Barbosa will end up missing four games with his sprained big toe. Look for him to be eased back in with 15-20 minutes in his usual reserve role. Owners of Gerald Green and streamers of Ish Smith shouldn't be worried.
Feb 28 - 1:20 PM

Leandro Barbosa (toe) will not play against the Jazz on Wednesday.

His toe injury has kept him out since Feb. 19 and he will miss his fourth game tonight. Not having Barbosa means coach Jeff Hornacek will have to give Ish Smith a ton of minutes because Goran Dragic (ankle) is unlikely to play.
Feb 26 - 5:42 PM

A toe injury will keep Leandro Barbosa out of Tuesday's game against Minnesota.

He also missed Sunday's game with the same injury and is day-to-day.
Feb 25 - 8:58 PM

Leandro Barbosa (sprained big toe) is doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves.

Barbosa didn't participate in Tuesday's shootaround and was declared "probably out" by coach Jeff Hornacek for Tuesday's game against Minnesota. Ish Smith and Archie Goodwin will get extra run Tuesday night and should make for solid fill-ins in deep leagues.
Feb 25 - 1:29 PM

Leandro Barbosa (toe) will not play against the Rockets on Sunday night.

The good news is that the swelling in his toe has gone down. He should be considered questionable for Tuesday's game against the Wolves. For tonight, Archie Goodwin and Ish Smith will get some more burn.
Feb 23 - 7:03 PM

Leandro Barbosa (toe sprain) did not practice on Saturday.

He did not play against the Spurs on Friday night and has also been dealing with some shoulder issues. After staying somewhat healthy earlier in his career, Barbosa has hit a rough patch of injuries including an ACL tear last season. Eric Bledsoe (knee) is getting closer to a return, which essentially makes the Brazilian Blur obsolete.
