Donald Sloan (thigh) is a game-time call against the Knicks on Friday.

If Tim Frazier had been healthy, Sloan probably wouldn't play at all tonight. He's not expected to be in the rotation to start the season.

Donald Sloan agreed to a one-year deal with the Wizards.

It's likely just a camp deal for the five-year vet. Sloan was with the Nets in the 2015-16 season and he did spend some time with the Pacers before that, but he'll likely just be there for training camp.

The Hornets are bringing in free agent G Donald Sloan for a workout, according to David Pick.

Sloan last played for the Nets in 2015-16, averaging 7.0 points, 2.8 boards, 4.4 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.6 threes in 21.6 minutes per game. He played for the Guangdong Southern Tigers in China last year, helping his team make the 2017 CBA Finals, and could head back overseas if he doesn't earn a guaranteed deal in the NBA.

Donald Sloan will be suiting up for the Guangdong Southern Tigers of the CBA next season.

Sloan probably could have signed another NBA contract after playing 61 games in Brooklyn during his 2015-16 campaign, but a larger role and more lucrative contract offer likely lured him back to China.

Donald Sloan gave the Nets a lift off the bench on Sunday with 19 points on 6-of-13 shooting, five assists, three rebounds and three 3-pointers.

Sloan didn't turn the ball over in 35 minutes of action and he spent plenty of time alongside starting PG Shane Larkin, who notched 15 points, eight assists and four boards in 35 minutes. It's encouraging to see the two sharing the court, rather than cannibalizing each other's minutes, but Sloan has been too inconsistent to trust outside of deep leagues.

Donald Sloan did not score on Wednesday against the Wizards with five assists and one turnover in 17 minutes.

He's clearly lost ground to Shane Larkin, who scored nine points with eight assists in 31 minutes. Sloan shouldn't be owned in most leagues while Larkin is an option for PG-needy owners.

Donald Sloan (illness) will not play on Sunday vs. the Pelicans.

The Nets are going to be very shorthanded on Sunday, so Shane Larkin is going to get all the minutes he can handle and is worth a long look in DFS. Sloan hasn't done much since his demotion to the bench, so he belongs on the wire outside of deeper leagues.

Donald Sloan made all three from the field and all five from the line for 11 points with five rebounds, five assists and one steal in 21 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday.

It'll be Shane Larkin starting the rest of the way even though Sloan has played some solid ball. He should still get around 22 minutes, so he might have value this week. Quick math suggests he could still get over 100 minutes with five games this week, which could be solid considering the Nets might rest players in some of those. He's someone to consider for some owners in deeper leagues.

Donald Sloan will return to the bench for Thursday's game against the Cavs, with Shane Larkin drawing the start.

Sloan was awful in his previous outing, going scoreless through 27 minutes of action. It's unclear just how long this lineup switch will stick, but Sloan has been really cold lately, and is not worth owning in standard leagues at this juncture in the fantasy season.

Donald Sloan missed all five of his shots and failed to score in Tuesday's loss to the Hornets.

He did have six assists, but no steals as the starting point guard. He's only hit double figures in one of his last five games and isn't even worth starting in fantasy right now.
Tue, Mar 22, 2016 10:16:00 PM

Donald Sloan started on Tuesday but hit 3-of-5 shots for nine points, two rebounds, three assists and a steal on Tuesday.

He had just seven points and three assists on Sunday, but Shane Larkin hasn't done much either as his backup. You can probably find a point guard better than either of these guys on your waiver wire.
Tue, Mar 15, 2016 10:47:00 PM

Donald Sloan scored 14 points with nine rebounds, nine assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes against the 76ers on Friday.

He is coming off a two-point game and Shane Larkin was gaining on him before this terrific stat line. Larkin and Sloan will continue to split the minutes at point guard and are at the mercy of the hot-hand approach most nights. Neither is worth owning in standard leagues.
Fri, Mar 11, 2016 10:02:00 PM

Donald Sloan hit just 1-of-6 shots for two points and five assists in 28 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Raptors.

It wasn't too long ago that Sloan looked like he was going to take the starting point guard job in Brooklyn and run with it, but he's been pretty quiet for three straight games. The first two of those were minutes-related (18 & 14) and tonight his shooting was the culprit. He easily out-minuted Shane Larkin, but the struggle is real. The bottom line is that you shouldn't want either of the Brooklyn point guards starting for your team right now.

Donald Sloan scored 10 points on 3-of-5 shooting vs. the Jazz on Saturday with six assists, two boards and one steal in 27 minutes.

Shane Larkin (four points and five assists in 21 minutes) still isn't a major threat to Sloan's role, so this is still his starting spot to lose. He is averaging 12.0 points, 5.6 boards, 4.4 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.6 3-pointers over his last five games and will continue to be a low-end asset for owners desperate for guard help.
