Barnes is questionable for Monday's Game 1 matchup against a to-be-determined opponent, Connor Letourneau of the San Fransisco Chronicle reports. Barnes was sidelined for the entirety of the Warriors' sweep of the Trail Blazers due to a right foot sprain and is being considered questionable for Game 1 of the next round. His questionable designation Wednesday doesn't indicate much about his status considering the length of time between then and Monday's game, but additional updates about Barnes' availability should be announced at some point during the week as the team continues to practice and Barnes continues to recover.
Barnes (foot) is out for Monday's playoff game against Portland. Early reports seemed to indicate there was a chance Barnes could suit up, but the team sees no need to rush him back onto the court before he's fully ready to give it a go. At the bare minimum, Golden State will play four more postseason games, so the expectation is that Barnes will find his way back onto the floor sometime before year's end.
Barnes (foot) took part in shootaround, but remains questionable for Monday's Game 4 against the Trail Blazers, Anthony Slater of Bay Area News Group reports. Barnes appears to be trending in the right direction for a return, as he was able to go through a practice late last week and has now participated in the team's morning shootaround ahead of Game 4. The Warriors are heavy favorites to finish off a sweep of the Trail Blazers on Monday, so there's still a chance they rest guys like Barnes, Kevin Durant (calf) and Shaun Livingston (finger) to avoid further aggravations. That said, all three should be evaluated after pregame warmups and will likely be game-time calls.
Barnes (foot) is questionable for Monday's Game 4 matchup against the Trail Blazers. Though he practiced Friday, Barnes sat out Saturday's Game 3 and is considered questionable for Game 4. Understandably, the Warriors are opting to exercise caution with their injured players, including star forward Kevin Durant (calf), who is also listed as questionable for Monday. If Barnes plays, his role will likely be contingent on Durant's availability, so both players' statuses should continue to be monitored in tandem. If one of the two ultimately misses the game, Patrick McCaw will likely continue starting at the small forward slot.
Barnes (foot) will not play in Saturday's Game 3 against Portland. Despite practicing Friday, Barnes will again be held out of action as the Warriors continue to exercise caution with their injured players. Kevin Durant, who also practiced Friday, will miss his second straight game, meaning Patrick McCaw and Andre Iguodala will pick up increased minutes with both Durant and Barnes out.
