  • Barnes (foot) logged four minutes in Monday's 106-94 win over the Jazz in Game 1 of the series, providing zero points (0-1 FG) and one assist. Barnes attracted some attention prior to the series after stating that he'd have rather faced the Clippers than the Jazz, but that may end up being the extent of the storylines surrounding him in the second round. After missing the Warriors' last six games with a right foot sprain, Barnes appears to find himself on the fringe of the team's rotation, as he saw roughly the same amount of playing time Monday as lightly-used bench forwards Patrick McCaw and James McAdoo.

  • Barnes (foot) will be active and available to play in Tuesday's Game 1 against the Jazz, Anthony Slater of Bay Area News Group reports. Barnes was given a probable designation earlier this week, so this was the expected course of action all along. He'll slot in as depth on the wing, but with both Kevin Durant and Andre Iguodala at full strength, and Barnes fresh off a six-game absence, it likely means he'll see his minutes heavily restricted.

  • Warriors' Matt Barnes: Probable for Game 1 vs. Jazz
    By RotoWire Staff

    Barnes (foot) is officially listed as probable for Tuesday's Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Jazz. Barnes has already said he's going to play in Tuesday's contest and assistant coach Mike Brown also mentioned that Barnes was "really close" to returning, so this latest designation as probable falls in line with previous reports. He should rejoin the lineup as a depth option off the bench, but he'll likely play just a minor role behind fellow reserve Andre Iguodala.

  • Warriors' Matt Barnes: Closing in on return
    By RotoWire Staff

    According to assistant coach Mike Brown, Barnes (foot) is "really close" to returning, Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Barnes indicated over the weekend that he's going to play in Game 2 on Tuesday, but it appears coach Brown isn't fully ready to clear him for the contest, so Barnes can be considered a game-time decision for the time being. He's likely closer to probable, but even if he is officially active, Barnes will likely only fill a small role off the bench behind top reserve Andre Iguodala. Look for another update on Barnes' status after Tuesday's morning shootaround.

  • Barnes (foot) will play in Tuesday's Western Conference Semifinals Game 1, ESPN's Chris Haynes reports. The Warriors may not know who they'll be playing next round quite yet, but at least they know they'll have Barnes ready to come off the bench. Barnes missed the entire first round series against Portland nursing a foot injury, but with over two weeks of rest it seems like he's closing in on a full recovery. With Kevin Durant back in the mix, Barnes figures to only spill the Warriors big guns sparingly, but depending on how a particular game evolves, Barnes could function as one of Golden State's primary reserve options going forward.
