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. Jul 12 - 6:12 PM

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.
Apr 14 - 12:49 AM

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.
Apr 11 - 10:49 PM

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.
Apr 9 - 9:39 PM

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.
Apr 9 - 6:31 PM

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.
Apr 9 - 1:42 AM

Toney Douglas will come off the bench for Friday's game against the Lakers.

It'll be Tim Frazier replacing Douglas in the starting five, but how these guys enter the game is pretty much meaningless with how banged up New Orleans is. Douglas should still see plenty of minutes off the bench, and is worth deploying as usual. James Ennis, Dante Cunningham, Alexis Ajinca and Omer Asik will join Frazier in the starting five for tonight's game.

Toney Douglas scored 20 points against the Nuggets on Thursday with three rebounds, 10 assists and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

It's just the second 20-plus scoring and 10-plus dime game of his career. The Pelicans are not likely going to get Norris Cole (back) and coach Alvin Gentry said nothing has changed with Cole. Douglas has been filling it up over his last five, averaging 14.4 points, 3.2 boards, 4.4 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.4 treys. He should be owned in standard leagues as long as you're OK with sub-par field goal percentage.
Apr 1 - 1:00 AM

Toney Douglas will start vs. the Spurs on Wednesday.

It's a logical move with Jrue Holiday (eye) out of commission, and both Douglas and Tim Frazier should see plenty of minutes as the Pelicans' lead PGs. Douglas is worth a look as a guy who can chip in steady points and 3-pointers with a trickle of assists and steals.
Mar 30 - 8:33 PM

Toney Douglas scored 16 points with five rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers against the Knicks on Monday.

He moved back to the bench with Jrue Holiday (eye) returning, but Holiday got hurt yet again. Douglas should be able to score in the teens with some 3-pointers, so give him a look if you're looking to bolster those categories.
Mar 29 - 1:02 AM

Toney Douglas and Alonzo Gee replaced Luke Babbitt and Omer Asik for the second half of Monday's game vs. the Knicks.

The Pelicans are just grasping at straws at this point and their lineups will likely continue to fluctuate on a game-to-game basis.
Mar 28 - 9:21 PM

Toney Douglas will come off the bench on Monday vs. the Knicks.

Jrue Holiday (toe) is back tonight and will start next to Luke Babbitt, Dante Cunningham, Alexis Ajinca and Omer Asik. Douglas should still get plenty of minutes, so his owners should see how he does before moving on.
Mar 28 - 7:36 PM

Toney Douglas scored 13 points with five rebounds, three assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes against the Pacers on Thursday.

He led the Pelicans starting unit in usage rate on the year, so only getting 13 shots from the field, two at the line and one turnover is a surprise. The Pelicans have called Norris Cole (back) questionable for almost three weeks, so he might not be coming back soon. Douglas is worth a look if you need a scoring guard.
Mar 24 - 9:37 PM

Toney Douglas scored 14 points vs. the Heat on Tuesday with nine rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.

Norris Cole (back) still hasn't returned, so Douglas' minutes are safe for now. He didn't shoot it well tonight and was just 4-of-16 from the field, but keep in mind that he was averaging 13.0 points, 6.0 assists, 1.8 steals and 2.2 3-pointers over his previous five games. He probably deserves another chance until we hear that Cole will return soon.
Mar 22 - 11:34 PM

Toney Douglas revealed he played a year in New York with a torn labrum.

To be very clear here, Douglas is healthy now and this is just a housekeeping item for his injury history. A lot of players play through labrum tears and not all of them are total tears. Expect Douglas to play a lot while Norris Cole (back) is out.
