Chris Douglas-Roberts said daily meditation helps him deal with the stress of playing in the NBA.

While Douglas-Roberts isn't guaranteed to make the Pelicans final roster, the veteran swingman said meditation has helped him push any worries aside. ''I've seen everything you can see in this league,'' Douglas-Roberts said. ''I don't feel any NBA pressure like I used to feel. But I'm different now. I go back to the hotel meditate and read. You know Zen Master stuff." Even if CDR hooks on with the Pelicans, he won't see enough minutes to warrant a spot in standard fantasy leagues.

Chris Douglas-Roberts will join the Pelicans on a two-year deal.

Douglas-Roberts played just 12 games with the Clippers last year after showing he had a little left in the tank in 2013-14. The Pelicans are fairly thin on the wing with Quincy Pondexter (knee) not 100 percent yet, but CDR can be ignored in all leagues.

According to Marc Stein of ESPN, the Pelicans are interested in bringing Chris Douglas-Roberts to training camp.

The Pelicans are pretty thin on the wings behind Eric Gordon and Tyreke Evans, so it makes some sense to go after a veteran such as CDR. The 28-year-old has career averages of 7.1 points, 2.1 boards and 1.1 assists, but he would likely just provide some emergency depth off the bench if the Pelicans do end up signing him.
Sep 11 - 9:46 AM

Chris Douglas-Roberts has been waived by the Celtics.

He was never part of the Celtics' future plans, and he doesn't have enough value to be considered as an asset in a future trade. He'll likely be able to sign on to be a reserve on another team, but he's unlikely to offer any fantasy value in most leagues.

Chris Douglas-Roberts has been sent to Boston as part of Thursday's three-team deal.

CDR wasn't worth owning as a member of the Clippers, and he won't be worth owning as a member of the Celtics. He was included in the deal to make the salaries work with the Clippers getting Austin Rivers, but the Celtics will likely waive him or use him in another trade, as he just doesn't make sense on a rebuilding team.
Jan 15 - 7:13 PM

Chris Douglas-Roberts (Achilles) is doubtful to play Wednesday vs. the Pacers.

CDR has been out since Nov. 5, but is slowly making improvements. Still, he's going to have a very limited role for the Clippers, so whether he plays or not should be of no concern to owners in standard leagues. Leave him on the wire.

Chris Douglas-Roberts (Achilles) is making slow progress in returning to action and went through shootaround on Monday.

He's not going to play tonight. "Now we’re just in the stage of getting back in the groove," Douglas-Roberts said. "I have to start doing 1-on-1s, 2-on-2s. It’s hard to really practice that much because we’re in season. So I have to kind of do this kind of stuff on my own where I’m testing it out and seeing exactly where I’m at as far as actually playing in a real game." He has no timetable to return, but is finally able to do a few things laterally on his foot.
