The Clippers are close to reaching an agreement with unrestricted free agent Chris Douglas-Roberts.
CDR had been linked to Miami as well, but it appears that the Clippers are going to snatch up the veteran. He will likely see time off the bench backing up J.J. Redick, Jamal Crawford, and Matt Barnes, but it would take an injury to one of the aforementioned players for Douglas-Roberts to gain standard league relevance. Owners can safely ignore CDR on draft day. Sep 1 - 9:17 AM

Free agent Chris Douglas-Roberts recently worked out for the Heat, who are also interested in Leandro Barbosa and Jordan Crawford.

CDR has been linked to Miami for the past month, so they're obviously in no rush to add him. His best-case scenario in Miami would be backing up Dwyane Wade as part of a platoon with Danny Granger and Reggie Williams, and fantasy owners would do well to ignore the five-year veteran in standard formats.
Aug 20 - 11:29 AM

Chris Douglas-Roberts played 25 minutes and hit 6-of-8 shots and two 3-pointers for 17 points, three rebounds and one assist in Saturday's loss.

He scored a total of seven points in Games 1 & 2, so it's hard to suggest using him in Game 4. Gary Neal played 28 minutes off the bench, but didn't do much outside of scoring nine points.
Apr 26 - 10:00 PM

Chris Douglas-Roberts shot 7-of-9 from the field for 18 points vs. the Wizards on Monday with three boards and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

Coach Steve Clifford has kept him in the lineup a little more than usual due to his improved play. Douglas-Roberts played 28.6 minutes per game over his last five, averaging 10.8 points, 3.2 boards, 0.6 steals and 1.0 triples. With Gary Neal back, CDR is likely going to have some inconsistencies.
Mar 31 - 10:46 PM

Chris Douglas-Roberts hit 6-of-14 shots and three 3-pointers for 16 points, five rebounds and two assists in Wednesday's win.

The absence of Gary Neal (ankle, knee) helped him tonight, as CDR saw 27 minutes. He's been getting some nice run of late and is averaging 10.0 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.2 3-pointers over his last five games, making him worth a deep-league look. He also hit a long two-pointer in overtime to help seal the win for the Bobcats.
Mar 26 - 10:00 PM

Chris Douglas-Roberts came off the bench for 13 points, three rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers in 22 minutes on Wednesday.

He had scored a total of three points over his previous two games, so there's probably nothing to get excited about here with CDR.
Mar 20 - 12:01 AM

Chris Douglas-Roberts moved back to the bench and scored 10 points on 2-of-5 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds and two assists in 21 minutes on Wednesday.

CDR did well to stay productive tonight with Gerald Henderson (calf) back in the fold, but it looks like he and Gary Neal will vie for backup shooting guard honors on most nights. That doesn't bode well for his fantasy value and owners can move on outside of very deep formats.
Mar 12 - 10:18 PM

Chris Douglas-Roberts scored nine points on 2-of-8 shooting (including two threes) with five rebounds, two steals and one block in another start at shooting guard for Gerald Henderson (calf) on Monday.

Henderson could return as soon as Wednesday and forward-looking owners may want to make the preemptive cut since Henderson is all but certainly going to crush CDR's value. Still, it's been an impressive showing for a guy whose career appeared to be on the ropes.
Mar 10 - 9:51 PM

Bobcats coach Steve Clifford recently praised Chris Douglas-Roberts, who has scored at least 12 points in four straight games while filling in for Gerald Henderson (calf).

"It's about guys quickly getting to their spots [offensively] in case you don't score out of the first option. [Douglas-Roberts] is good at all of that stuff," Clifford said. "And defensively he knows all the coverages and gives a good effort all of the time." The Bobcats haven't provided much information about Henderson's injury and he's due to be re-evaluated this week, so CDR's shelf-life hasn't expired quite yet.
Mar 10 - 10:15 AM

Chris Douglas-Roberts started for the Bobcats on Saturday and hit 6-of-10 shots for 15 points, two rebounds, two steals and a 3-pointer in 30 minutes of a loss to Memphis.

Gary Neal (27 minutes, 7 points) came off the bench tonight, as Gerald Henderson missed another game with a calf injury. We still don't know when Hendo will be back, and as long as he's out, CDR looks like a safe play. He's averaging 13.25 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.75 steals and 2.5 3-pointers over his last four games. But once Henderson is back in action, all bets are off with CDR.
Mar 8 - 11:02 PM

Chris Douglas-Roberts scored 14 points in his second consecutive start on Friday with nine boards, one assist, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers.

He hit his four treys early in the game and filled up the rest of the stat sheet early on, as well. Coach Steve Clifford likes Douglas-Roberts in the starting lineup and with Gerald Henderson (calf) out this weekend, CDR will get another look against the Grizzlies on Saturday.
Mar 7 - 11:18 PM

Chris Douglas-Roberts got the start at shooting guard on Wednesday and hit 4-of-7 shots and three 3-pointers for 12 points, two rebounds, three assists and three steals.

Gerald Henderson will miss some time with a calf injury and it looks like CDR will continue to start, as the Bobcats want to keep bringing Gary Neal off the bench in order to keep the second unit intact. Neal played 25 minutes and hit 3-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers for 10 points, four rebounds and an assist. Neither player is a must-own at this point, but as long as Henderson is out, both are worth a look in daily leagues.
Mar 5 - 10:36 PM

Chris Douglas-Roberts will start against the Pacers on Wednesday.

Gary Neal will come off the bench because coach Steve Clifford wants to keep his second unit together. Plus, the extra size of Douglas-Roberts will help against the length of Indiana's starting unit. If CDR gets most of his minutes at shooting guard, that likely means Anthony Tolliver and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist may see more minutes. Neal is likely a better play than CDR for a higher usage rate with the second unit.
Mar 5 - 6:15 PM

Chris Douglas-Roberts received six stitches above his left eye in the second quarter on Friday.

He looks like he'll be ready to return and should see some minutes tonight while the Bobcats wait for clearance on Luke Ridnour and Gary Neal.
Feb 21 - 8:39 PM

Chris Douglas-Roberts played under one minute during Tuesday's win vs. the Knicks, as Michael Kidd-Gilchrist's return knocked him from the rotation.

It's possible that CDR will resurface with playing time as a backup SF, but his quiet play this year suggests that he'll have zero value off the Bobcats' bench.
