Harrison Barnes, who missed only one game last season as a rookie, will miss the Warriors' first two games with a foot injury that kept him out most of the preseason.

Golden State plays host to the Lakers on Wednesday and visits the Clippers on Thursday before returning home for the Kings on Saturday.

GOLLIVER: Reflecting on Allen Iverson's career

Barnes, a first-team All-Rookie performer, averaged 9.2 points and 4.1 rebounds per game in the regular season and upped those marks to 16.1 ppg and 6.4 rpg in 12 playoff games, but was still likely to play a reserve role this year after the Warriors added veteran Andre Iguodala.

"He's doing things now without pain," Warriors head coach Marc Jackson told the San Jose Mercury News. "But we want to get closer to when he was 100 percent healthy -- practicing, running with no issues. There are some restrictions right now and, because of that, it makes no sense to throw him out there tomorrow night."
