    Harrison Barnes was impressively efficient on Tuesday, leading the Kings to a 112-106 win over the Pelicans with 25 points on 9-of-19 shooting, adding eight rebounds, two assists, three triples and two steals in 37 minutes.

    Barnes was in full attack mode in this one and the already-out-of-contention Pelicans were not much in the mood to slow him down, resting some of their key players in this game. Barnes is more of just a points-guy, so tonight's line was just gravy.

    Harrison Barnes put up an 11-point, 10-rebound double-double in Sunday's loss to the Rockets.

    Barnes did not have any 3-pointers, rebounds, assists, steals or blocks in this one. He had a disappointing season in 2019-20 as his value was outside the top-150. He does not excel at any one category and brings slightly below average value in points, triples, rebounds, assist and field goal percentage.

    Harrison Barnes helped the Kings take down the Pelicans on Thursday, posting 22 points, six rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

    Barnes is a boring fantasy player to own in most leagues and wasn’t standard-league worthy during the shortened first portion of the season. However, he is providing fantasy GMs with 8th/6th-round value during the resumption league in 8/9-cat formats.

    Harrison Barnes and the Kings returned to action against the Spurs on Friday evening, finishing with just 10 points (4-for-5 FG), seven rebounds and two steals in 37 minutes of action.

    Barnes has had another disappointing season in 2019-20 and his best days seem to be well behind him. He is perennially over-drafted but fantasy owners could see that trend bucked next year, as his playing time figures to suffer in 2020-21 as well. If Marvin Bagley III is ready to go by the beginning of next season, he could take a lot of the opportunities that Barnes has seen in recent years for the Kings.

    Harrison Barnes is expected to play in Friday's opener without a minutes restriction.

    Barnes is cleared for a full go as the Kings resume the season and chase a playoff berth. Their next game is Friday against the Spurs.

    Alex Len (COVID/conditioning) has been ruled out for Friday’s game.

    Luke Walton was “hopeful” Len would be able to take the court Friday after multiple negative COVID-19 test results, but the big man will not be ready to go. Richaun Holmes will play without a minutes restriction and is expected to eat up some of the extra minutes in Len’s absence. Harrison Barnes, who has been recovering from coronavirus, has been fully cleared and will also play without a minutes restriction.

    Luke Walton said that he is "hopeful" that Alex Len can play during Friday's game against the Spurs.

    Len was forced to quarantine after a positive coronavirus test but has now tested negative multiple times. He still needs to get into 5-on-5 practices before getting cleared for game action. Len averaged 6.6 points, 7.1 rebounds and 1.4 blocks while playing 16.7 minutes per game this season with the Kings. With Richaun Holmes and Harrison Barnes back in action, Len is unlikely to see a big uptick in playing time.

    Harrison Barnes struggled to find his rhythm on Monday, scoring just 12 points on 2-of-8 shooting while adding six rebounds in 22 minutes.

    Barnes was back on the floor for the Kings after arriving late to Orlando after a positive COVID-19 test. He came off the bench for this game but will likely shift back into the starting lineup once the real games begin. Despite playing almost 35 minutes per game this season, Barnes was outside the top-160 in standard leagues and certainly has more value in points formats as opposed to roto and head-to-head.

    Harrison Barnes will come off the bench for Monday's scrimmage against the Clippers according to Kings head coach Luke Walton.

    Barnes will play with a minutes restriction on Monday, coming off the bench after clearing the COVID-19 protocols. His arrival in Orlando had been delayed after testing positive to coronavirus but he was able to practice on Sunday. The belief is that he will slide back into the starting lineup once regular season games begin later this week. Barnes' upside is limited and he should only be viewed as a late-round target in most resumption drafts.

    Harrison Barnes was present at Sunday's practice.

    That means Barnes has passed quarantine, though he may not play in Monday's scrimmage. He also didn't take any contact in Sunday's practice, but we'd expect him to be ready for the seeding games. Barnes will be a late-round selection for points in resumption leagues.

    Harrison Barnes has tested negative for COVID-19 and is on his way to the Orlando bubble, the Kings announced on Friday.

    Barnes should slot back into the starting lineup as soon as he's ready, and he might offer enough scoring to survive as a late-round option in resumption leagues. His arrival is going to negatively impact the rest of the team's forward rotation from a fantasy perspective, and you can slightly downgrade Bogdan Bogdanovic, Nemanja Bjelica and Harry Giles on your draft boards — though the first two are both still better options than Barnes.

    PG, Sacramento Kings

    De'Aaron Fox will sit out of Wednesday's first scrimmage game vs. the Heat but has taken part in on-court, non-contact basketball activities.

    Fox sprained his ankle on July 15 and was set to get re-evaluated in 7-10 days. We are currently one week out from the initial injury and it appears that Fox is progressing with this report. The Kings are hopeful to have both Fox and Harrison Barnes (Covid-19) available for their first contest on July 31 and we will learn more about their outlook in the coming days.

    Harrison Barnes remains in Sacramento after testing positive for Covid-19 and has yet to clear the NBA coronavirus protocol in order to travel to the Orlando campus.

    It was also reported that Barnes will be on the first flight out to Orlando as soon as he receives his two negative test results. The Kings have been hit hard over the last week with De'Aaron Fox spraining his ankle and Marvin Bagley suffering another foot injury. Luckily, the team seems optimistic about Fox's chances of playing in their first game on July 31 while Bagley will sit out the remainder of the season. Hopefully, Barnes can join the team soon in order to be able to play in the team's first contest. We'll learn more over the coming days.

    Marc Spears is reporting that Harrison Barnes could be departing to Orlando on Tuesday if he passes one more Covid-19 test.

    Barnes tested positive for Covid-19 one week ago but would appear to be on the verge of travelling into the Orlando bubble. The Kings are on the outside looking in when it comes to the Western Conference playoff race. Given they are 3.5 games back of the eighth-seeded Memphis Grizzlies, a shot at glory seems unlikely at this stage. Barnes was playing upwards of 34 minutes per game prior to the lockdown, putting up 14.9 points per game. Sitting outside the top-150 in standard leagues, Barnes is someone to consider late in resumption drafts.

    Harrison Barnes saw his fantasy value dip in 2019-20, down to 160/164 in 8/9-cat scoring from 145/139 in the previous season.

    The issue with Barnes is cut and dry. He's always been a one-trick pony in fantasy and his value was pegged tightly on his ability to put up points on the board. When more players emerged as able contributors in scoring, Barnes' value took an expected hit. At this point, there's no strong indicator that he'll be able to turn things around as the Kings develop more of their younger talent moving forward.
