Barnes provided 20 points (7-13 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds and an assist across 36 minutes in Saturday's 123 -111 win over the Trail Blazers.
Barnes added another excellent stat line to his resume after an equally impressive total against the Sixers on Thursday. When he's dialed in, Barnes is one of four pure shooters on the team who can get things going from beyond the arc. With the help of Barnes' five threes, the Kings tied a team record for three-pointers. While the veteran carries more variance than most of his teammates, the perfect storm of production Saturday is an encouraging sign as the Kings make a push for a playoff spot, and Barnes will figure to be a key part of that effort.
Barnes notched 21 points (9-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds and one assist in 38 minutes during Tuesday's 112-94 win at Golden State.
Barnes has now scored in double digits in three straight contests, and he has done that five times in his last six games. The small forward clearly has embraced a bigger role on offense during that six-game stretch, a period where he is averaging 20.0 points per contest while shooting an impressive 59.7 percent from the field and 54.3 percent from deep. As good as his numbers look of late, however, he's bound for a regression sooner rather than later.
Barnes scored 32 points (11-17 FG, 7-11 3Pt, 3-4 FT), one rebound, one assist and one steal in 38 minutes during Thursday's 129-125 win over Memphis.
Barnes has now reached at least 23 points in three of his past four games. He was the game-leader in this one as no one else topped 26. The North Carolina product will look to keep streaking Saturday against the Clippers.
Barnes finished with 23 points (8-13 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, three assists and a steal in 36 minutes during Monday's loss to the Bucks.
Barnes is solidly in the midst of his best stretch since the beginning of January as he's totaled 48 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists on 17-of-26 shooting over his past two contests. That said, he's unlikely to keep up this current level of production for much longer as, since the new year, Barnes has failed to top double digits in seven of 18 games. That said, he's still worth a roster spot in most formats as his averages of 14.7 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.3 threes still represent decent nightly contributions.
Barnes finished with just two points (1-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt), six rebounds and one block in 29 minutes during Saturday's 129-113 loss to the Lakers.
Barnes matched his season-low with two points Saturday, continuing to demonstrate his unfriendly fantasy game. He continues to play big minutes for the Kings despite being outside the top-300 in nine-category leagues. There is very little upside when analyzing Barnes and outside of an occasional scoring outburst, he has no place on a 12-team roster.
Barnes totaled 12 points (3-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-6 FT), four rebounds and two assists in 39 minutes during Monday's 133-129 overtime victory over Minnesota.
In what's become a regular trend, Barnes offered little production despite playing major minutes. With Marvin Bagley (foot) and Richaun Holmes (shoulder) eventually set to return from injury, Barnes' downward-trending fantasy value only stands to fall further. He can be more valuable in points leagues than categorical formats, but even then, his fantasy upside remains fairly limited.
Barnes had 19 points (8-14 FG, 0-2 3PT, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 35 minutes during Friday's 98-81 win at Chicago.
Barnes has been extremely inconsistent with his scoring of late -- over his last eight outings, he has failed to crack the 10-point mark four times but has scored 19 or more points thrice during that span. That lack of consistency hurts his upside a bit considering he doesn't stand out in any other particular category, but Barnes is doing enough things overall to remain rostered in most formats moving forward.
Barnes had only nine points and four rebounds in 36 minutes during Saturday's 123-101 loss to Utah.
Barnes struggled to get anything going Saturday, doing very little to increase his fantasy appeal. He is outside the top-150 over the past two weeks, and scoring aside, he offers very little in terms of production. He will occasionally turn in a solid performance which is enough to keep his value afloat. On the whole, he is not worth rostering in 12-team leagues.
Barnes scored 25 points (10-18 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and added eight rebounds, two assists and a steal in 38 minutes during Wednesday's 127-123 loss to Dallas.
Barnes made 10 field goals in the affair, tying his season high in the category on the way to one of his biggest games of the season. The eight boards were the most he's had in his last nine contests. The 27-year-old certainly seems healthy after an injury scare earlier in the week.
Barnes (quadriceps) isn't listed on the Kings' injury report in advance of Monday's game against the Magic.
Barnes appeared to suffer a right quad injury late in Friday's 127-106 loss to the Bucks, but his ability to practice fully Sunday allowed him to escape the Kings' injury report. He should be ready to fill a high-minute role as Sacramento's starting small forward Monday and will look to continue his hot offensive run. Over the last five games, Barnes is averaging 17.2 points per game, though the scoring production has come on an unsustainable 58 percent shooting from the field and 50 percent shooting from three-point range.
Barnes (quadriceps) is expected to play Monday against the Magic, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.
Barnes exited Friday's 127-106 loss to Milwaukee late in the fourth quarter with the right quadriceps injury, but it sounds like he was able to practice Sunday without any major restrictions. His status will likely be updated again following Monday's morning shootaround, but Barnes shouldn't be subject to a minutes restriction if he's ultimately cleared to play.
Barnes scored 19 points (8-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT) to go along with three assists, a rebound and a steal in 36 minutes during Sacramento's 127-106 loss to Milwaukee on Friday before exiting late in the contest with a right quadriceps injury.
Barnes missed the final 3:02 of the contest, but because Milwaukee was leading by 13 points at that time, he may have been held out as more of a precaution. Expect the Kings to provide an update on Barnes' status for Monday's game against the Magic once the team reconvenes for practice Sunday.
Barnes provided two points (0-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two assists and one rebound in 27 minutes Tuesday in the Kings' 114-103 win over the Suns.
The Kings made a 21-point comeback to stun the Suns, but Barnes didn't provide much help to Sacramento's second-half charge. In fact, the two points were his fewest of the season, and as is often the case when his shots aren't falling, Barnes didn't provide enough in other areas to compensate for the lack of scoring. With averages of 13.5 points, 2.7 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.5 three-pointers in 32.7 minutes over his past six outings, Barnes doesn't look like a must-roster player in 12-team leagues these days.
Barnes poured in 30 points (9-12 FG, 2-2 3PT, 10-12 FT) to go with four rebounds and three assists in 39 minutes during Saturday's 117-115 loss to the Pelicans.
While Barnes tied his season high in scoring to keep the Kings competitive in the loss, fantasy managers shouldn't expect nights like this from him very often, especially now that De'Aaron Fox is healthy again. Since Fox returned from a long-term absence Dec. 17, Barnes is averaging a pedestrian 14.6 points on 40.5 percent shooting from the field over 10 games, and the forward isn't chipping in much in the peripheral categories either (4.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.4 triples per game). Barnes' usage rate will likely plummet further once Bogdan Bogdanovic (ankle) and Marvin Bagley (foot) return from what are likely short-term injury concerns.
Barnes produced 17 points (6-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three assists and a blocked shot across 36 minutes in Thursday's 128-123 win over the Grizzlies.
Barnes rebounded from a poor shooting night Tuesday by converting 60 percent of his shots. While his scoring totals have taken a slight dip in his first full season with the Kings, the 27-year old vet provides a solid leadership presence on a young team with a lot of potential.
Barnes posted eight points (3-9 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-4 FT), three rebounds, three assists and one steal during Tuesday's 105-87 loss to the Clippers.
Struggling to put the ball in the basket against the stifling Clippers defense isn't unexpected, but Barnes' month of December was rough overall. He shot just 36.7 percent from the field and 27.4 percent from deep, averaging 13.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 35.1 minutes. Barnes also racked up fewer than 20 fantasy points on seven occasions. At this point, fantasy owners in weekly lineup lock leagues may need to avoid starting him unless the Kings play four times.
Barnes finished with 18 points (7-14 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five boards and two assists in 37 minutes of a 103-101 loss to the Knicks on Friday.
Barnes bounced back from his worst scoring performance of the season in his last contest against the Thunder to post a stat line more in tune to what is the norm for the 2012 first-round pick. Barnes is averaging 16.0 points per game in his second season while offering a solid second scoring option to Buddy Hield. Barnes will face Golden State on Sunday.
Barnes had 13 points (6-15 FG, 0-2 3PT, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and one steal in 38 minutes during Sunday's 110-106 win at Dallas.
Barnes has been quite steady, scoring in double digits in all but three games while grabbing multiple rebounds in every single outing this season. He is never going to be Sacramento's go-to guy on offense, but he has taken a bigger role offensively of late. He averages 18.5 points on 46.7 percent shooting and 37.5 percent from deep over his last eight contests (38.3 minutes per game).
Barnes had 21 points (6-15 FG, 9-11 FT), 10 rebounds, five assists and four turnovers in 43 minutes during Friday's 105-104 overtime loss at the Spurs.
Barnes has scored 15 or more points in seven of his last nine games, and he has embraced the bigger responsibility on offense with both De'Aaron Fox and Marvin Bagley sidelined through injury. He is averaging 18.7 points on 49.1 percent shooting over that nine-game span.
Barnes had 16 points (6-16 FG, 1-5 3PT, 3-4 FT), three rebounds and one assist in 36 minutes during Monday's 113-106 defeat against the Bulls.
Barnes has scored in double figures in each of his last eight outings, and he has topped the 15-point mark in five of his last six appearances. He seems to be taking on a bigger load offensively with both Marvin Bagley and De'Aaron Fox out through injury. That should lead to an increase on his value at least on a short-term scenario.
