OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Harrison Barnes will miss at least the first two games of the regular season for the Golden State Warriors with a left foot injury.
Warriors coach Mark Jackson told reporters following Tuesday's practice that shooting guard Klay Thompson will start in the season opener against the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night. Jackson also said that Thompson already had earned the nod and will start even when Barnes returns.
Barnes has not played since the team's second preseason game Oct. 7. The Warriors have said Barnes has "left foot inflammation."
Barnes started every game he played as a rookie last season, including the playoffs. With all five starters back from last season, Barnes and Thompson were competing to remain starters after the Warriors signed swingman Andre Iguodala this summer.
