Barnes will not play in Tuesday night's preseason game against the Clippers due to a rib issue, James Ham of CSN California reports.

The root or the severeness of the ailment Barnes is dealing with is unknown at this time, but it's unlikely it is anything serious. Head coach Dave Jeorger is likely wanting to get one last look at some of his other players fighting for roster spots, so veterans like Barnes do not need to necessarily be in the lineup. Look for Barnes to be ready to roll when the regular season gets started.
