  • Matt Barnes: Wraps up 14-year career
    By RotoWire Staff

    Barnes announced his retirement from professional basketball Monday on his personal Instagram account. A second-round pick out of UCLA in 2002, Barnes toiled in the ABA in his first two years as a professional before making his NBA debut in 2004. He would parlay his outside shooting ability and excellent wing defense into a 14-year career in the league, which included two stints apiece with the Clippers, Kings and Warriors and additional stops with the Knicks, 76ers, Suns, Magic, Lakers and Grizzlies. It wasn't until his final season in 2016-17 with Golden State that he captured his first NBA title, as he appeared in 12 postseason contests as a lightly used reserve. He wraps up his career with averages 8.2 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 23.6 minutes per game over 929 regular-season appearances.

  • 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.
