Harrison Barnes twisted his left ankle midway through the Warriors-Suns game Friday. X-rays were negative and the injury, unlike the Warriors’ win streak, isn’t serious.
Depending on his recovery, he could miss a game or two, although at this point, would the scorching Warriors actually miss him? And that’s no disrespect to Barnes, who’s off to a terrific start this season. It’s just the Warriors are showing no signs of letting up, and their win streak to start the season is now 17 after their 135-116 rout in Phoenix.
Barnes didn’t return to action after the ankle injury, ending his night after 21 minutes. He had to be helped to the locker room and walked gingerly. Barnes finished with seven points and seven rebounds.
