Grizzlies waive G Toney Douglas.
He was playing really well with 14 points on Wednesday, so this is somewhat surprising. Douglas' play will likely lead to him getting another job. This is good news for Andrew Harrison to keep his minutes, especially on the short term. Also, this suggests Mike Conley (back) is getting much closer. Thu, Dec 15, 2016 03:57:00 PM

Toney Douglas had a productive game on Wednesday, coming off the bench for 14 points on 6-of-10 shooting with two 3-pointers, six boards, five assists and two steals.

Douglas committed just one turnover in 28 minutes. He got a boost with starting PG Andrew Harrison (two points in 20 minutes) in foul trouble, and his strong play decimated Wade Baldwin (three minutes). Douglas is worth a speculative add in deeper leagues, but most owners should just keep an eye on him over the next few games.

Toney Douglas cooled off against the Warriors on Saturday with four points, three rebounds, four assist and two steals in 23 minutes.

After he helped close out the Blazers on Thursday as a point guard, Douglas saw minutes at both guards. He has played somewhat well, but there is going to be a lot of competition for minutes. He's more of a stream in deep leagues.

Toney Douglas scored 11 points with one rebound, three assists and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes against the Blazers on Thursday.

He played the entire fourth quarter of this close win, making his only field goal and all four from the line. Douglas scored the final six Memphis points, including two free throws with 0.5 seconds left to get the win. He played mostly at point guard tonight and may have carved out a role for minutes in the mid 20s. If you're in a deep league with a dry wire, he's worth a look.

Toney Douglas will be available to play Monday vs. the Pelicans.

It'll be interesting to see how many minutes Douglas can earn in his Memphis debut, but with a favorable matchup against the Jrue Holiday-less (toe) Pelicans, he's someone to consider throwing out there as a DFS punt play. Fantasy GMs in most settings, however, can use a wait-and-see approach here.

The Grizzlies have signed veteran PG/SG Toney Douglas by using the NBA’s hardship rule.

He was the "frontrunner" to sign for the Grizzlies after they worked out a few point guards last week. With Mike Conley (back) looking at a multi-week absence, Douglas should immediately see minutes on his new team which puts him on the radar in deeper leagues. For now, most owners should use a wait-and-see approach because it's not clear how big of a role he will have. Andrew Harrison's owners should be slightly concenred as his value could take a hit with the arrival of Douglas. We'll let you know if he's active for Monday's game vs. the Pelicans.

Toney Douglas "has emerged as the frontrunner" to join the Grizzlies, according to team beat writer Michael Wallace.

The Grizzlies are expected to get an NBA injury exception in the coming days to give them an extra roster spot. Douglas can play both guard spots and may have a chance to get minutes. This would also likely allow them bring Wade Baldwin IV along slowly. Andrew Harrison's value could take a hit, but he looks like the best one to own of the three.

The Cavaliers have waived Toney Douglas.

They just signed him on Oct. 3, but he had a rough showing during the preseason. The Cavs have been linked to Mario Chalmers and they just re-signed J.R. Smith, so Douglas was expendable.

The Cavaliers have signed free agent point guard Toney Douglas.

It's an excellent signing for the Cavs after Douglas put up averages of 8.7 points, 2.6 assists, 2.3 boards, 1.1 steals and 1.3 treys for the Pelicans last season. With Mo Williams retiring, Douglas will now compete with Kay Felder for the backup role behind Kyrie Irving. In terms of fantasy, Douglas isn't worth drafting in most formats, but could have some sneaky DFS value whenever Kyrie sits. It's not a guaranteed deal, but we'd be surprised if Douglas didn't make the team. In order to make room for Douglas, the Cavs waived Eric Moreland.

The Pelicans have reportedly waived Toney Douglas.

Douglas had some nice moments with New Orleans down the stretch of the 2015-16 season when a majority of the team was injured, but with the additions of E'Twaun Moore, Langstong Galloway and Buddy Hield, Douglas became expendable. He shouldn't have any trouble landing another NBA contract, but it's tough to see him landing in a situation that will allow him to command standard league value.

Toney Douglas made 6-of-13 FGs and 8-of-8 FTs to finish Wednesday's road loss with 22 points, four rebounds, five assists, four steals and a pair of 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

Douglas is averaging 21.0 points and 2.2 triples in his past five games, a strong finish aided by unchallenged minutes in New Orleans' thinned-out backcourt. This game was a fitting finale for the Pelicans, who used 41 different starting lineups and lost more than 340 games due to injuries this season.

Toney Douglas stayed hot on Monday vs. the Bulls, scoring 21 points (8-of-13 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs) with three assists, two boards, one steal and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

This was also Douglas' fourth game in a row with 19 or more points. The Pelicans have had a nightmare season, but you have to respect what guys like Douglas, Tim Frazier, Luke Babbitt and James Ennis have been able to do down the stretch. The Pelicans are down to eight healthy bodies, so Douglas is worth deploying in all lineups for Wednesday's game vs. the Wolves to finish out the season.

Toney Douglas scored 23 points with two rebounds, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers during a 121-100 loss to the Suns on Saturday.

That's back-to-back games with at least 20 points as basically the team's go-to scorer. Douglas does have two more favorable matchups on the horizon against the Bulls and Wolves. He'll be a popular target in DFS for those two games and has arguably been the best guard fantasy add in the past month. The Pelicans losing this game makes them very likely to be the sixth position in the lottery.

The Pelicans will start Toney Douglas, James Ennis, Dante Cunningham, Alexis Ajinca, and Omer Asik against the Suns on Saturday.

The Pelicans will go big here against Alex Len and Tyson Chandler. The starting lineup doesn't really matter much, so don't let this dissuade you from using Tim Frazier and/or Luke Babbitt.

Toney Douglas scored 20 points with six rebounds, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes against the Lakers on Friday.

Shockingly, the Pelicans used the same starting lineup for two games in a row. Douglas' price has come up a bit in DFS, but he's still a nice play in the right matchup. If you need scoring, he should be owned in most of those instances.
