Description: Clippers forward Matt Barnes is questionable for Friday's game against Houston due to a strained left calf.
Insight: Barnes has limited fantasy value with his 7.8 ppg, 2.1 rpg average. He's not a top scoring option on a team with Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, J.J. Redick and Jamal Crawford. Reggie Bullock got the start Wednesday, but didn't prove to have any fantasy value even as a starter.

However, the team acquired Jared Dudley and J.J. Redick in the offseason and have reduced Barnes' minutes to less than 21 per game through the first four contests. He can fill up the box score, but he's not going to be a fantasy option when he's getting limited playing time.
