Barnes failed to register a single point Saturday (0-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt), but did add six rebounds and one assist in 29 minutes in the Game 3 destruction of the Rockets.

Barnes is averaging 11.0 points and 4.8 rebounds throughout the postseason, but has now failed to register double-digits in the last two games. While relatively consistent, it's been a while since we've seen an explosion, and his ceiling is relatively low.

Barnes scored 16 points (7-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with six rebounds and one assist in 41 minutes Saturday as the Warriors fell behind 2-1 to the Grizzlies.

The 16 points was a playoff-high for Barnes and has now scored in double-digits in three straight games, but his ceiling is fairly low for fantasy purposes as the at best, the fourth option on his team.

Barnes posted 11 points, seven rebounds, two assists, one steal, and two blocks over 37 minutes in Game 3 against the Pelicans on Thursday.

Barnes is certainly not one of the premiere offensive weapons on the Warriors but he still managed to accrue an impressive, and well-rounded, box score despite his stature on the team. He should continue to see large amounts of playing time moving forward in the playoffs as he slots into the starting small forward slot head of veteran Andre Iguodala.

Barnes scored 13 points (5-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT) with 10 rebounds, three assists and four steals in 28 minutes Saturday.

While Barnes has played and started in every game this season, Saturday's effort was only his fourth double-double and the four steals were a season-high. Despite his consistent role, Barnes is not a great fantasy option, but in fantasy championships, if you are trying to maximise games, he should be solid, provided you don't have high expectations.

Barnes scored just four points on 2-of-8 shooting in Thursday night's win over Phoenix, but his runner with four-tenths of a second remaining was the game-winning score. It was the first game-winner of his career.

Barnes and his teammates will enjoy his role in the win, but fantasy owners are growing weary of the third-year pro's inconsistency. Some nights he's aggressive; some nights he's not. Barnes has made just 2-of-15 shots (0-for-6 3Pt) for five points in the previous two games.

Barnes scored seven points on 2-of-7 shooting to go along with seven rebounds, two assists and three steals in Monday night's win over the Wizards.

For a three-game stretch, when the Warriors were without Klay Thompson due to an ankle injury, we saw an aggressive Barnes who averaged 12 shots per game. When Thompson returned Monday, Barnes was back to a less aggressive posture. That's been a pattern throughout his career.

Barnes posted 22 points, one rebound, and one steal in 20 minutes of action Friday against the Pelicans.

Barnes is coming off a season-best 25 points Wednesday, and it appears he's in the midst of a hot streak. It is likely going to be short-lived, however, so owners will have to keep their expectations in check when he returns to his standard production.

Barnes scored a season-high 25 points (11-of-13 FG, 2-of-3 3Pt, 1-of-2 FT) in the Warriors' win over the Hawks on Wednesday.

The scoring is obviously significant, but it takes on a bit more meaning because it was the team's first game without the injured Klay Thompson (ankle). As the Hawks made an effort to double Stephen Curry, other members of Golden State had opportunities and Barnes seized it Wednesday. He was more aggressive -- something that doesn't happen every night from Barnes. Thompson will miss at least three more games, so Barnes may be a good temporary play.

Barnes posted 17 points and eight rebounds in 30 minutes of action Sunday against the Celtics.

Barnes is now averaging 10.2 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 1.6 three-pointers made over the last five games. While it's encouraging that he's contributing in rebounds, he isn't racking up enough points, assists, and steals to be worth owning in standard leagues.

Barnes played some power forward during Friday night's win over San Antonio, the San Jose Mercury News reports. Head coach Steve Kerr is considering that look more often as it worked well for the team's offense.Barnes, who is shooting 43 percent from three-point distance this season, was able to stretch the floor and let David Lee make some plays in the low post. It was that smaller lineup that changed the complexion of the game, turning a close match into a double-digit Warriors lead. "I probably need to get Harrison at that spot more often because I think that's when we're the most dynamic and the most difficult to deal with," Kerr said.
