Harrison Barnes said he agrees with Damian Lillard's statement that he would only return to the court if there was something at stake.

“I think Dame is right. If you come back and play, you want to be playing for something," Barnes told Howard Beck on Beck's The Full 48 podcast.

Lillard said earlier this week that he would only play out this season if the Blazers had a chance to make the playoffs.

Barnes added that this current Kings team needs more game-time reps to come together as a group.

“There’s no other simulation that we can get for games. This group, where we’re at, we need to play, we need to play together, and playing for something is important.”
