Harrison Barnes SF GS 1 Month

Barnes could receive playing time at starting small forward leading up to this season, although Andre Iguodala will probably retain the position, according to new Warriors coach Steve Kerr, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Barnes went from starting 81 games as a rookie to just 24 last season upon the arrival of Iguodala via trade. Despite predominately coming off the bench, Barnes still increased his minutes average to 28.3 last term, when he also tallied 9.5 points and 4.0 rebounds per game. With coach Kerr aiming to familiarize himself with Golden State's personnel, Barnes will be experimented with at starting small forward, even as Iguodala is expected to keep hold of the position.

Harrison Barnes looks to bounce back after struggling throughout most of his sophomore season.

"Last year was definitely a step back from what I was trying to build on my rookie year," he said. "So now the biggest thing is when the expectations are on the ground, you've got to be motivated and disciplined." Barnes was expected to take a leap forward after a strong rookie season, but he barely improved in major statistical categories and his field goal percentage dropped considerably. He also mentioned that moving back and forth between being a starter and a reserve was difficult. "There was a lot of back-and-forth in terms of starting and not starting. Obviously, I'm just looking forward to going in this year and hopefully have a little more solidarity in whatever position I'm going to be in." His inconsistency made life difficult for both Warriors fans and fantasy owners.

Harrison Barnes will be working on his ball-handling this offseason.

Barnes was electric during the 2012-13 playoffs, but his play fell off substantially this past season. A lot of that had to do with Andre Iguodala coming in and creating a logjam at the position, but Harrison's shooting percentage fell as well to 39.9 percent. Perhaps incoming head coach Steve Kerr will better be able to utilize the former seventh overall pick from the 2012 draft. "I think Harrison Barnes can improve a lot when the ball is swung, when there's good spacing," said Kerr.

Harrison Barnes scored six points on 3-of-7 shooting with seven rebounds, five assists and three steals in Monday's win over the Wolves.

Barnes doesn't have any nagging injuries that we're aware of and Mark Jackson will rest a lot of key guys on Wednesday, and it will also be a good time for the Warriors to try and get the disappointing sophomore ready for the playoffs. Tonight's line wasn't half bad, and he's worth a speculative, lower-end play on a busy 15-game night on Wednesday.

Harrison Barnes will start against the Wolves on Monday night with Andre Iguodala (knee) out.

He hasn't been effective as the start, making just 40.2 percent from the field for averages of 11.6 points, 4.5 boards, 1.0 steals and 0.8 triples. Barnes isn't much of an option despite offering some upside.

Harrison Barnes moved back to the bench against the Grizzlies on Friday, scoring four points on 2-of-7 from the field for one rebound, two assists and two steals in 18 minutes.

There's bad, then there's Harrison Barnes right now. He's shot just 17.6 percent from the field in his last five and is useless in fantasy leagues right now. The Warriors are hoping the switch turns on in the postseason.

Harrison Barnes started again for Andre Iguodala on Saturday, but had another bad night, hitting just 1-of-6 shots for four points, five rebounds and two assists.

Barnes was expected to have a big week with Iguodala out, but never came through. He's hit just 7-of-35 shots over his last five games, scoring no more than six points in any of them. And once Iguodala comes back, things will probably get even worse. This was a tough week to roll with Barnes and he probably caused some serious playoff damage to his owners. But he sure did look like a nice option coming in, and we're still not sure how he managed to play so poorly.

Harrison Barnes miss all seven shots from the field and failed to score against the Bucks on Thursday.

Yikes. He shot 1-of-6 from the field in his start for Andre Iguodala (knee) on Tuesday and is slumping at the wrong time. In his last five, Barnes shot just 20.6 percent from the field for averages of 4.0 points, 4.2 boards, 2.0 assists, 0.4 steals and 0.2 triples. He should be better, but obviously nobody will be running to the wire to add him after this dud.

Harrison Barnes started in place of Andre Iguodala (knee, out two more games), but hit just 1-of-6 shots for four points, five rebounds and three assists in 31 minutes.

We were expecting a lot more from Barnes tonight, and while he didn't come through, he'll get at least two more games to get right. He looks like a strong daily play against the Bucks on Thursday.
