Warriors will have Matt Barnes (ankle) available for Game 1

Golden State Warriors forward Matt Barnes (ankle) is available for Game 1 versus the Utah Jazz on Tuesday.

What It Means:

Barnes hasn't played since April 8 with an ankle injury but looks good to go for Game 1 Tuesday. It is unclear how much he will play or if he is even in the rotation after missing nearly a month.

Barnes averaged 5.7 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 2.3 assists in 20 games played (five starts) with the Warriors this season.
