2023 Fantasy Outlook
The 2021-22 Rookie of the Year saw his development stall as part of a tough season overall for the Raptors that got coach Nick Nurse fired. Barnes traded some rebounds for assists as he took on more ball-handling duties, but his efficiency and three-point shooting both took steps backward, and the rest of his production stagnated. About 15 points a game with 10 boards-plus-assists and two blocks-plus-steals is still a solid fantasy package, but the fourth overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft seems capable of much more given his athleticism and skill set. Still just 21 years old, the Florida State product remains a key piece of Toronto's core, but as the last members of the team's championship roster from a few years ago slip away, the front office seems caught between trying to stay competitive and executing a full teardown around Barnes. With Dennis Schroder replacing Fred VanVleet at point guard, Barnes' usage could increase once again, but Pascal Siakam, OG Anunoby and Jakob Poeltl will all be looking for the ball as well. Barnes will have to focus on improving his offensive game if he wants to reach the next level, rather than being one of many complementary assets on a balanced Raptors squad that needs someone to step up as the lead dog. He's got the upside and the opportunity to become a fantasy star in 2023-24, but he also has a lot to prove. Read Past Outlooks

Will not return Friday

Hand
March 1, 2024
Barnes won't return to Friday's game versus the Warriors due to a left hand injury, Eric Koreen of The Athletic reports. He finished with 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-5 3Pt), six rebounds, three assists and one steal in 16 minutes.
ANALYSIS
Barnes checked out of Friday's game before halftime and was in visible pain. Kelly Olynyk started the second half in his place, and he would be a big beneficiary if Barnes misses additional time. Next up for the Raptors is a mathcup versus the Hornets on Sunday.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Unlocking statistical versatility
FToronto Raptors
February 26, 2024
Barnes recorded just one triple-double in his first two NBA seasons, but he has compiled four triple-doubles through 58 appearances thus far in 2023-24.
ANALYSIS
Barnes notched his second triple-double of the month Monday, passing LeBron James for fifth-most triple-doubles in the NBA this season, trailing only Nikola Jokic, Domantas Sabonis, Luka Doncic and Giannis Antetokounmpo. Barnes' continued growth as a do-it-all-forward could fuel Toronto into the hunt for a spot in the Play-In Tournament down the stretch of the season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2021
The fourth overall pick out of Florida State in the 2021 NBA Draft, Barnes played his way into 2021-22 Rookie of the Year honors. He came out of the gates hot, scoring in double figures in his first eight appearances, and he didn't slow down The versatile forward averaged 15.3 points on 49/30/74 shooting, 7.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.8 combined steals-plus-blocks. He had plenty of big games, most notably a performance in a 36-point win over the Nets where the rookie posted 28 points (12-14 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 16 rebounds (nine offensive), five steals, four assists and one block in 34 minutes. The overall result was Barnes ranking 70th in per-game fantasy value. The next step for the 21-year-old will be improving his shooting. He took a modest 2.6 threes per game and made them at 30.1 percent, and his free-throw percentage (73.5) leaves a bit to be desired. With the rest of his game already polished and the Raptors running a lot of small-ball, his lack of floor-spacing isn't a major issue for the team. He should make improvements overall this season, but Barnes' ceiling is a bit capped given that Pascal Siakam and Fred VanVleet are above him in the pecking order, and OG Anunoby gets his fair share of touches as well. Barnes should be drafted before pick 70, but expecting a leap into All-Star status might be unrealistic.
Barnes was somewhat of a surprising pick by the Raptors at No. 4, but there's no question that he has the frame and skill set to develop into the best defender in the draft. At 6-foot-9, 230 pounds, Barnes has the body of a forward, but he spent most of his time at point guard as a freshman at Florida State last season. The major knock on Barnes is that he's a poor shooter (27.5% 3PT; 62.1% FT last season), but he's an effective finisher at the rim who can rebound, pass, block shots and defend virtually any position. Long-term, Toronto's hope is that it can develop Barnes into the next evolution of Draymond Green, but Barnes may not have a major fantasy impact in his rookie season. Concerns about the jumpshot aside, Barnes joins a talented roster that already features Pascal Siakam, OG Anunoby, and Precious Achiuwa up front, with Fred VanVleet, Goran Dragic and Malachi Flynn as options at point guard. Nick Nurse will find a role for Barnes, but his fantasy floor is not as high as the other elite prospects in the 2021 Draft class.
