    Grizzlies' Matt Barnes: Double-doubles with five treys and five dimes Saturday

    Barnes exploded for 17 points (6-10 FG, 5-7 3Pt), 11 rebounds, five assists, and one block in 36 minutes during the Grizzlies' 114-110 overtime loss to the Mavericks on Saturday. The contest went to overtime, but Barnes hadn't surpassed 30 minutes in a game since Jan. 23. The versatile forward has now seen 30 or more minutes 15 times this season. This was also his fourth double-double, and his fifth five-assist showing as well. Barnes turns 36 next month, but he still provides a lot of energy off the bench for the Grizzlies while earning minutes at multiple positions.

    Grizzlies' Matt Barnes: Questionable for Friday

    Barnes (hamstring) is questionable for Friday's matchup with the Knicks, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports. Barnes missed Monday's win over the Pelicans due to his right hamstring and it could keep him on the sidelines Friday as well. The Grizzlies will likely wait to see how Barnes handles Friday morning's shootaround as well as pregame warmups before making a final decision. If he is ultimately ruled out, look for Jeff Green to pick up extra minutes.

    Grizzlies' Matt Barnes: In the starting lineup Thursday

Tony Allen is dealing with soreness to both his knee and hamstring and will get the night off, which opens up an opportunity for Barnes to move back into the starting lineup. Barnes is averaging 26.3 minutes so far this season, but with the additional minutes available from Allen's absence, he could see that number increased Thursday.

    Grizzlies' Matt Barnes: Scores 16 points Monday

    Barnes contributed 16 points (5-9 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, and one assist in 28 minutes during the Grizzlies' 101-99 win over the Pelicans on Monday. Barnes has been hot over the last four games, posting 12.0 points (48.4 FG, 50.0 3Pt, 100.0 FT), six rebounds, two assists, 0.5 steals, and 0.5 blocks in 28 minutes per night.

His ability to cover multiple positions and stretch the floor with suitable three-point shooting has allowed him to earn a fairly prominent role regardless of whether he starts or not.

    Grizzlies' Matt Barnes: Perfect from downtown in victory Thursday

    Barnes (thumb) scored 18 points (6-7 FG, 6-6 3 Pt) with three rebounds and two steals over 28 minutes in a 103-101 victory over the Pistons on Thursday. Coming off the bench due to a thumb injury, Barnes would notch his highest offensive total since a Dec. 14 match-up against the Wizards. Hitting a season-high six shots from beyond the arc, Barnes outplayed Tony Allen, who managed two points on 1-of-4 shooting in a starting role. Barnes, who missed just one game with the injury, will seek confirmation from the team's medical staff to play Saturday against the Knicks.
