Toney Douglas played 17 minutes against the Nuggets on Tuesday with six points, two rebounds, one assist and one turnover.
That's a lot of playing time for Douglas in a game with Jrue Holiday in the starting lineup. On the nights Jrue does miss and if Anthony Davis (shoulder) needs to miss games, Douglas should see 25 minutes or so. Obviously you would have to be in a very deep league to give him a look.

Toney Douglas hit 5-of-8 shots (all makes were 3-pointers) and scored 17 points in Tuesday's win over the Mavericks, the first of the season for the Pelicans.

Douglas added just one rebounds and one assist, but the five threes were fun. There's a chance Jrue Holiday sits out on Wednesday (back-to-back), which should mean more goodies for Douglas and Ish Smith. Holiday played just 15 minutes tonight, so we'll call him 50-50 for playing in Wednesday B2B.
Nov 11 - 12:13 AM

Toney Douglas played 28 minutes against the Mavs on Saturday with 11 points, one rebound, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

The minutes saw a little uptick as the Pelicans went small a bunch tonight. Douglas is still way behind Ish Smith and don't forget Jrue Holiday rested tonight.
Nov 8 - 2:19 AM

Toney Douglas came off the bench for nine points, six rebounds, four assists and two steals, hitting 4-of-6 shots in 20 minutes.

He had 17 points and a full stat line in his debut and played well again tonight. Keep an eye on him in deeper leagues, and feel free to deploy him as a cheap source of stats in daily leagues.
Nov 3 - 10:38 PM

Toney Douglas came off the Pelicans' bench for 17 points (7-of-12 FGs) in his debut, hitting one 3-pointer with three rebounds, four assists and one steal in 23 minutes.

He looked good considering how little time he had to acclimate to his new team, but Douglas isn't a viable fantasy option while stuck in a timeshare at PG with Jrue Holiday (27 minutes) and Ish Smith (11 minutes). The career 40.5 percent shooter should remain on your waiver wire.

The Pelicans signed guard Toney Douglas on Friday.

It's a two-year deal, but the second year is non-guaranteed. Douglas will come in and immediately contribute behind Jrue Holiday (leg) and Ish Smith, and he should be in uniform for Saturday's game vs. the Warriors. However, he won't see enough minutes to make any noise in fantasy leagues.
Oct 30 - 1:10 PM

Toney Douglas will sign with the Pelicans according to Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today.

Douglas will serve as emergency depth behind Jrue Holiday (leg) and Ish Smith after the Pelicans waived Nate Robinson on Thursday, but he isn't going to see enough minutes to impact fantasy leagues.
Oct 29 - 5:37 PM

The Pelicans are in talks with free agent guard Toney Douglas.

The Pelicans just waived Nate Robinson on Thursday, so signing Douglas should be a top priority considering their lack of depth at the point guard position. Ish Smith has been playing fantastic for the Pelicans, so Douglas will likely just provide some emergency depth if he does sign in New Orleans.
Oct 29 - 3:38 PM

Pacers waive G Toney Douglas.

The Pacers have gained a ton of confidence in rookie James Young, so there really was no need for Toney Douglas. He may get picked up by another team.
Oct 26 - 2:24 PM

Toney Douglas hit 5-of-14 shots and a 3-pointer for a team-high 15 points, three rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in 28 minutes on Tuesday.

The Pacers went deep into their bench while the regulars played very limited minutes tonight. In other words, don't put Douglas on your radar.
Oct 13 - 10:12 PM

Toney Douglas believes that he was brought to the Indiana Pacers for a reason.

"We really haven’t gotten into detail about me being here, but I know I’m here for a reason," Douglas said of signing with the Pacers. "I feel like I can bring veteran leadership on the defensive end and the offensive end. I feel like we can take our defense to another level." Douglas sounds confident that he will be a good fit with the Pacers, but he will have a tough time carving out a role in a very crowded backcourt and can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
Aug 14 - 10:28 AM

Pacers consultant Donnie Walsh described newly-signed G Toney Douglas as an unconventional PG who fits Indiana's new up-tempo system.

Walsh emphasized Douglas' defensive abilities and Pacers president Larry Bird has already suggested that he can play both PG and SG this season. The veteran guard will have a hard time carving out fantasy-relevant minutes, however, given that Indy's backcourt already features George Hill, Monta Ellis, Rodney Stuckey and C.J. Miles.

Indiana Pacers sign G Toney Douglas.

Terms of the deal have not yet been announced, but Douglas will now join his fifth team in seven NBA seasons. "He’s a veteran player who’s a good pro and he can play two positions," said Pacers President of Basketball Operations Larry Bird. "He’s the type of player we’re looking for with our new style of play." Douglas has averaged just 7.6 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game in his NBA career and can safely be left on waivers in all fantasy leagues.
Aug 11 - 12:37 PM

Free agent guard Toney Douglas will sign a deal with the Pacers.

Douglas just cleared waivers after being released from the Pelicans, so it clearly didn't take him long to land another deal. He is already in Indiana working out for the Pacers, so it shouldn't be too long before he puts pen to paper. Douglas will likely just be emergency depth in Indiana and isn't a lock to make the final roster, so he shouldn't be considered in fantasy leagues.
Aug 6 - 5:52 PM

Toney Douglas has officially cleared waivers and is now a free agent.

Douglas averaged 4.3 points, 2.0 assists, 1.8 boards and 0.9 steals in 12 appearances with the Pelicans last season, and he should be able to get a camp invite from another NBA team. However, Douglas is not on the fantasy radar.
