Barnes (hamstring) resumed his normal role as a starter Friday against the Wizards where he posted eight points, four rebounds, and two blocks on 31 minutes of action.

Barnes previously missed the last two games with a hamstring injury but dispelled any doubts with his 31-minute outing Friday. He should be available moving forward which means that Hedo Turkoglu will go back to a limited role off the bench.

Barnes (hamstring) took part in Friday's shootaorund, Dan Woike of the OC Register reports.

Barnes has missed the last two games with a minor hamstring issue, but his participation in shootaround is a fairly sound indication that he'll try to give it a go Friday night against Washington. If that's the case, Hedo Turkoglu will likely return to a bench role.

Barnes (hamstring) will not play Wednesday against the Kings, Rowan Kavner of Clippers.com reports.

Barnes (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Hornets, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Barnes missed two games to start March due to a hamstring concern, which has apparently reemerged. In his last five games, though, he's averaged 15.4 points (on 53 percent shooting), 3.4 three-pointers, 2.2 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.6 steals, and 0.8 blocks in 32 minutes.

Barnes scored 22 points (6-8 FG, 6-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT) with three rebounds, one assist, two blocks and three steals in 40 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Thunder.

Barnes is being relied upon more with Blake Griffin and Jamal Crawford both sidelined. Barnes should continue to see as many minutes as he can handle at small forward. He has a skill set that can result in big lines, making him valuable in any league.

Barnes (hamstring) returned to the starting lineup during Sunday's loss to the Warriors, and finished with nine points (4-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two assists and a blocked shot in 23 minutes.

Barnes missed two games with the hamstring injury, but was able to play 23 minutes Sunday. As long as he didn't suffer any setbacks with the injury, expect his minutes to be in the high 20's or low 30's moving forward, especially considering Jamal Crawford (calf) will likely sit out the next week with an injury. He won't provide much fantasy value other than his three-point shooting though, so that's something to keep in mind.
