Warriors forward Harrison Barnes missed most of the preseason with a foot injury and now it appears it will impact the regular season as well.

The Warriors were expecting to move Barnes to the bench anyway with the addition of Andre Iguodala, but the injury is going to hurt what is already a depleted bench unit offensively. It also limits the ability of the Warriors to run a small-ball lineup with Barnes at power forward that worked so well in the playoffs (against very specific lineups by very specific teams).
