News: Barnes will start at small forward in Thursday's preseason game versus the Nuggets, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Impact: Barnes started Golden State's most recent preseason outing, when Andre Iguodala came off the bench in his first game with a broken nose. However, since then, new coach Steve Kerr has mentioned his interest in experimenting further with Barnes as the Warriors' starting small forward. Doing so would allow Iguodala to serve as the team's sixth man in a point-forward role while Shaun Livingston (toe) remains sidelined. Furthermore, Barnes has excelled in a starting role over his first two seasons, but Iguodala's addition last summer often relegated Barnes to a less effective reserve spot. As a result, it should be worthwhile to monitor how Kerr manages both Barnes' and Iguodala's roles for the remainder of the preseason.(RotoWire, )

News: Barnes (shoulder) started at small forward in Sunday's preseason game against the Lakers, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. He had suffered a minor shoulder injury during Thursday night's preseason game. Impact: Barnes scored eight points (4-of-7 FG, 0-of-2 FT) with three rebounds, one assist, two blocks and two steals in the win. Head coach Steve Kerr's decision to start Barnes was in part due to regular starter Andre Iguodala's broken nose, but it also gave him a look at both players in different roles. Overall in his two NBA seasons, Barnes has been a better producer when playing with the starting five, but that's unlikely to be the case in 2014-15. He'll need to learn how to impact games from the bench.(RotoWire, )

News: Barnes suffered a shoulder injury during Thursday night's preseason game against the Lakers but was able to return to the court, CSN Bay Area reports. Impact: It was an aggressive Barnes -- a more aggressive one than we saw in the preseason opener Tuesday -- who scored 11 points and got to the free-throw line seven times against the Lakers. We presume he'll be able to go when the two teams tip off again Sunday.(RotoWire, )
