Barnes scored four points (1-9 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), backed up by five rebounds, two assists, and two steals in 26 minutes on Sunday.

Barnes started January off going on a tear, however over the last three games he's cooled off. He's averaging five points, 3.6 rebounds and one three-pointer during that span, which may cause owners to consider leaving him on the bench until he snaps out of his funk.

Barnes had his first double-double of the season Saturday, scoring 26 points (10-15 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with 10 rebounds, one assist, three steals and one block in 40 minutes.

Aside from his massive contributions across the board, what is very interesting to note is that Barnes has now played 40 minutes in consecutive games and hasn't dipped under 30 minutes in the past six games. Barnes can give you steals (1.5 per game in his last four), but his major value lies in three-pointers, hitting 2.4 triples in his past 13 games. With this sort of hot streak happening, Barnes is a solid add in most leagues.

Barnes scored 19 points (6-12 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT) in 30 minutes of action despite being a game-time decision Wednesday with an illness.

Barnes was a part of a Clippers starting unit that had all guys score in double figures in a huge win over the Lakers. This was Barnes' best scoring night since Dec. 13, so owners shouldn't jump on his bandwagon all of a sudden. Barnes has only scored double-digit points in just three of his past nine games, and really doesn't do much else to fill up the stat sheet.

Barnes (illness) is a game time decision for Wednesday's matchup against the Lakers, Dan Woike of the Orange County Register reports.

Barnes is apparently feeling a bit under the weather, and is at risk of missing the evening tilt. If he's unable to go, look for Jamal Crawford and Chris Douglas-Roberts to see extra run.

Barnes had six points (2-4 FG, 2-2 3Pt) and two rebounds in 21 minutes Saturday against the Raptors.

Despite being the usual starter at small forward for the Clippers, he has not been producing viable fantasy numbers lately. He has not scored in double figures in five straight games and six of his last seven games. His 9.4 points-per-game average over his last 10 games is greatly helped out by his 26 point performance against Milwaukee on Dec. 13.

Barnes had his most productive night of the season Saturday, scoring 26 points (10-18 FG, 6-8 3Pt) with one rebound, two steals, and one block in 32 minutes.

Barnes, who started off the season dreadfully and at one stage lost his starting job, has really picked up the pace of late, averaging 13.6 points, 2.1 three-pointers, 4.3 rebounds, 1.6 assists, .9 steals, and 0.6 blocks on 52 percent shooting from the field and 89 percent from the line in his last seven games. Production like that warrant consideration, even in 10 team leagues, but be wary, it may not last.

Barnes (calf) will play and start in Friday's game against the Rockets.

Barnes (calf) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game, the Orange County Register's Dan Woike reports.

Reggie Bullock practiced with the starters Wednesday, so he looks to see significant run in Detroit. Consider Barnes questionable for Friday's game in Houston.

Reggie Bullock will move into the starting lineup at small forward Monday.

Barnes scored a season-high 12 points (3-8 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT) in 27 minutes in his first game back in the starting lineup after coming off the bench in the last two.

Barnes has so far failed to live up the production he gave fantasy owners last season, but this performance was a step in the right direction. For now, he is just someone to monitor, but a hot streak can also be just around the corner.
