News: Less than a month after promoting him to the active roster, Dallas released guard Chris Douglas-Roberts on Sunday. Douglas-Roberts was elevated from the Texas Legends of the NBA Development League on Dec. 22 after the Mavericks waived Derek Fisher.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts appeared in just six games with the Mavericks and averaged just 10.5 minutes per game. The 25-year-old also averaged just 2.8 points and 0.7 assists a night as he was buried on the team's depth chart. Leave him on waivers in all Fantasy formats for now.
News: Dallas is reportedly waiving point guard Derek Fisher at Fisher's request, reports ESPN Saturday. The 38-year-old Fisher is dealing with a strained patellar tendon in his right knee. Dallas is recalling Chris Douglas-Roberts from the D-League to take Fisher's place on the roster.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts has been arguably the hottest prospect in the D-League of late and the Mavericks feel it is time to see what he can do. That said, not a whole lot is expected from CDR right off the bat. He should be considered to have low-end Fantasy value.
News: The Mavericks signed guard Chris Douglas-Roberts to a non-guaranteed contract Thursday.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts averaged 12.3 points and 3.0 rebounds in 27.0 minutes for Virtus Bologna of the Italian League last season and has already been waived by the Lakers this preseason. Even if he makes the squad in Dallas, plan on ignoring the 25-year-old in Fantasy.
News: The Lakers waived guard Chris Douglas-Roberts and Greg Somogyi on Monday. The team's roster is now at 16 players.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts last played with the Bucks in a regular season NBA game. He is roster depth wherever he lands and has low-end Fantasy value.
News:Chris Douglas-Roberts signed a one-year deal to play for Virtus Bologna of the Italian basketball league, according to HoopsWorld.com. According to the report, citing Italian Sportando.net, the deal does not include an exit clause that would allow him to return to the NBA if the lockout ends.
Analysis: CDR averaged 7.3 points and 2.0 rebounds last season, troubled by a significant eye problem. He has shown flashes of potential throughout his brief NBA career, but is not a player who will be sorely missed in Fantasy hoops this season if he does indeed miss the entire year.
News: Milwaukee forward Chris Douglas-Roberts was on the bench for the eighth consecutive game during the Bucks' 104-98 victory over Toronto on Wednesday night. Douglas-Roberts has not played since March 15 when he scored two points against Atlanta. Since then, he has fallen out of Milwaukee's rotation as the Bucks have posted a 2-2 record.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts is averaging just 7.6 points and 2.1 rebounds per game this season and hasn't been a factor for Milwaukee since the beginning on January. He was sidelined with an illness during most of February, but since he returned has averaged 12 minutes of playing time. He should not longer be viewed as a viable Fantasy option this season.
News: Bucks SF Chris Douglas-Roberts continues to sit out for Milwaukee as he missed Monday's game against the Clippers. Douglas-Roberts had been dealing with the flu but has since received two consecutive DNP-CDs. He's simply not in the rotation right now.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts will get minutes at times for the Bucks but they always seem to dissipate once again. For now, Fantasy owners should avoid CDR in all formats.
News: Despite being active, Bucks forward Chris Douglas-Roberts did not play on Saturday against the Pacers. He missed Friday's game due to flu-like symptoms, but received a DNP -- coach's decision on Saturday.
Analysis: Fantasy owners should consider Douglas-Roberts day to day, despite him not officially being on the injury report. He's averaging 8.3 points and 2.3 boards per game this season, which isn't exactly what Fantasy owners look for. Continue to ignore him, even when he's healthy.
News: Milwaukee forward Chris Douglas-Roberts missed Friday's game in Memphis with flu-like symptoms. The team is considering him day to day.
Analysis: CDR hasn't been playing a lot lately for the Bucks as his teammates are starting to get healthy. He's averaging 8.3 points and 2.3 boards per game this season, which doesn't give him much Fantasy value. He should be ignored in the majority of formats.
News: Milwaukee F Chris Douglas-Roberts was suffering from an illness and did not play until the final 1:10 of Wednesday's game against the Wizards. He did not have any stats in the game.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts is back to playing single digits in minutes. For as long as that is the case, he has no Fantasy value.
News: Bucks forward Chris Douglas-Roberts played just nine minutes off the bench in Saturday's 89-78 loss to the Pistons. Douglas-Roberts scored nine points in the contest on 3 of 4 shooting from the field. He made both of his free-throw attempts, but did not record a rebound or assist in the defeat.
Analysis: CDR continues to put up very pedestrian numbers and continues to lose minutes too Carlos Delfino and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute. He is averaging just 7.0 points over his last three contests and has scored in double figures just once over his last six games. The Bucks have a very crowded frontcourt and it appears Douglas-Roberts may be the odd-man out at the moment. Fantasy owners are best to leave him on the waiver wire until he sees an increase in minutes and production.
News: Bucks forward Chris Douglas-Roberts did not play in Saturday's game against the Nets following the death of his aunt. Douglas-Roberts sent a tweet out earlier in the day that read "Let's get a win tonight Bucks. Sorry I can't be there tonight. Bad day for me." The team has not announced when he is expected to rejoin the team.
Analysis: There has been no announcement on how much time CDR is expected to miss, so Fantasy owners will have to monitor his status over the next few days to see if he will be back before lineups lock for Fantasy Week 15 (Jan. 31-Feb. 6). While Douglas-Roberts has turned in some monster performances on the season, his play continues to be extremely erratic. That makes to tough to start in in most Fantasy leagues as you never know what kind of the production to expect from the third-year guard out of Memphis. Consider him just a low-end Fantasy option in deeper formats once he rejoins the team.
News: Bucks forward Chris Douglas-Roberts played 24 minutes in Friday's 116-110 overtime win over the Raptors, scoring 11 points. He shot 3 for 6 from the field and was 1 for 2 from downtown. CDR nailed all four of his foul shots, as the Bucks were plus-17 points when he was on the court. He chipped in four rebounds and three assists for Milwaukee. CDR hurt his left wrist in Wednesday's game against the Hawks, but seemed fine on Friday.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts scored 30 points two games ago, and now has gone back to being just a role player on the Bucks. He's averaging 10.0 points, 2.4 boards and 2.2 assists over his last five games, while shooting a dismal 19 for 44 from the field. Those numbers don't hold too much Fantasy value. Consider CDR a low-end forward option in the deepest of formats.
News: Bucks guard Chris Douglas-Roberts hurt his left wrist in an awkward fall in the second quarter on Wednesday against the Hawks after being blocked by Josh Smith. Douglas-Roberts would return to start the second half. He said his wrist still hurts, but he believed nothing was broken. He finished with four points on a 1-for-8 shooting display in his 23 minutes of action. He added four assists and one rebound in the Bucks 98-90 win over the Hawks.
Analysis: CDR matched his season high on Monday, but then followed it up with an awful outing. His wrist likely contributed to his off shooting night, but he hasn't been lighting it up this year either. Entering Wednesday, CDR was averaging 9.1 points and 2.6 boards per contest in 27 games. Fantasy owners should keep viewing him as a low-end option in the deepest of formats.
News: Bucks F Chris Douglas-Roberts matched his season high in scoring on Monday night against the Bulls. He scored a team-high 30 points on 13 of 21 shooting in the 92-83 loss. While he missed his lone attempt from beyond the arc, he made 4 of 5 free throws while playing 44 minutes. "I just tried to bring a little bit of energy to keep us in the game," Douglas-Roberts said. "If I'm not out there scoring and being aggressive, I'm really not of much value for us." Douglas-Roberts also chipped in with three rebounds and two assists in the defeat. "[Douglas-Roberts] got it going," Bucks coach Scott Skiles said. "It's great when he does."
Analysis: CDR entered Monday night having scored just 13 combined points in his last four games, but he broke out in a big way. It was the second time this season that he has dropped 30 points, but his production has been too sporadic to trust in most Fantasy formats. He is averaging 8.6 points with 2.8 rebounds and one steal over his last five contests and should be considered a low-end Fantasy option going forward.
News: Bucks SF Chris Douglas-Roberts was handed a start on Wednesday against the Washington Wizards because John Salmons was scratched with a hip injury. Douglas-Roberts played 22 minutes and shot 3 of 5 from the field in the start to score six points. He added six rebounds and one assist. Douglas-Roberts still played bench minutes, despite starting the game.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts is averaging 22.8 minutes per game over his last five and that should be what is expected of him going forward. With those minutes, CDR is averaging just eight points and 2.6 rebounds and is just a low-end Fantasy option.
News: Bucks SF Chris Douglas-Roberts nearly notched a career-high in points in Friday's loss to the Heat. He scored a game-high 30 points off of the bench, converting on 12 of 19 shots and 2 of 3 from beyond the arc. Still, it's the shots he didn't make that will make the second-year pro remember the outing. He missed a pair of free throws with 26 seconds left and the Bucks down by two. Teammate Earl Boykins would eventually send the game to overtime, but the team would go on to lose 101-95. Douglas-Roberts was succinct when asked what cost the Bucks. "Those free throws by me," he said. CDR added five rebounds and two assists in 41 minutes of playing time. He also played well on the defensive end, recording a career-high four blocks and stealing two passes on the night.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts had not scored more than 21 points in a game this season before Friday night, and he set a new career-mark in blocks. The two missed free throws will hurt for a while, but the overall night was arguably CDR's best as a pro. It will be interesting to see if coach Scott Skiles plays the former Memphis Tiger more in the coming games as the Bucks continue to play without Brandon Jennings and Drew Gooden -- both with left foot injuries. The good thing to know is that he let Douglas-Roberts see more than 40 minutes with the hot-hand, so Skiles seems to be flexible with playing time. Moving forward, don't fall in love with CDR as a waiver pickup for Week 12 (Jan. 10-16) as the Bucks have a tough stretch of games against the Hawks, Spurs and Sixers. Monitor his minutes in the next few games first.
News: Bucks SF Chris Douglas-Roberts hit a 3-pointer and grabbed a couple rebounds during his time on the court in Tuesday's loss to Miami. Douglas-Roberts shot 2 for 6 from the field and scored six points.
Analysis: CDR hasn't been in double figures in a while. It doesn't seem to matter how many minutes he gets, he's just not consistent. Fantasy owners should shy away from him at the moment.
News: Bucks SF Chris Douglas-Roberts only played 15 minutes on Monday against Atlanta and was benched for poor defense, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. He failed to score on 0 for 3 shooting with two steals and one rebound in the performance but allowed two easy layups to Atlanta's Josh Smith in the early minutes of the game and was given the quick hook.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts is averaging 5.6 points per game over his last five and that is over 27 minutes per night. With fewer minutes, he's almost not worth having on any Fantasy rosters.
News: Bucks forward Chris Douglas-Roberts had a third straight poor outing. His latest debacle came on Thursday night against the Kings. He shot 2 for 8 from the field, hitting his lone foul shot, finishing with five points. Douglas-Roberts added just one board and one assist in his 33 minutes of court time. Milwaukee would win the game 84-79, but not because of CDR's contributions.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts has scored in single digits in three straight games for the Bucks and is averaging just 9.8 points over his last five outings. Despite getting some starts, CDR is not producing enough to be a big-time Fantasy player. Plus if he continues to struggle, he'll likely go back to a reserve role. Consider him a low-end Fantasy option at this point.
News: Milwaukee forward Chris Douglas-Roberts scored a team-high 21 points during his first start of the season in the Bucks' 92-90 loss at San Antonio on Wednesday. Douglas-Roberts added three rebounds and two assists as he logged a season-high 40 minutes of playing time. The third-year player now has double digits in points in back-to-back games for the second time this season.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts, who is averaging 8.6 points and 2.9 rebounds per game this season, got the start Wednesday for Luc Richard Mbah a Moute at small forward. We're not sure how long Douglas-Roberts will remain in the starting lineup for the Bucks, which hurts his immediate Fantasy value. Consider him a low-end Fantasy option at this point and keep an eye on him in deeper leagues.
News: The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that coach Scott Skiles has named Chris Douglas-Roberts as a starter going forward. He will replace Luc Richard Mbah a Moute at small forward.
Analysis: CDR is coming off a solid 14-2-5 stat line off the bench on Dec. 13 in Dallas. He could be looking at a quick boost and is a viable addition off the waiver wire, though we recommend not investing much in a player involved in a rotation that is far from set in stone.
News: With Corey Maggette playing just seven minutes on Monday in Dallas, the Bucks gave Chris Douglas-Roberts 27 minutes on the floor. Douglas-Roberts responded by shooting 4 for 5 from the field and scoring 14 points. He added five rebounds, two assists and went 6 of 7 from the line.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts could begin to see more action consistently if the Bucks are truly shying away from using Maggette. However, every time CDR starts playing more, it eventually comes to an end. For now, he's just worth monitoring for an eventual add in the deepest of Fantasy formats.
News: Bucks SF Chris Douglas-Roberts was back down to Earth on Wednesday in Denver. Douglas-Roberts had been in double figures in his previous two games but shot just 2 for 9 against the Nuggets to score four points Wednesday. He played 21 minutes, shot 0 for 3 from long range, and added four assists and two rebounds.
Analysis: CDR has only played in three games this season as he got a late start due to an eye injury. We didn't expect him to be much of a Fantasy option this season. He's played fairly well, but he'll need to be monitored going forward. For now, we'd only have him on rosters in the deepest of leagues.
News: Bucks forward Chris Douglas-Roberts has played in just two games this season, but he's starting to warm up. Douglas-Roberts shot 5 for 12 from the field -- 3 for 5 from downtown -- and went 6 for 9 from the foul line, finishing with 19 points. He added four rebounds, one assist and a block in his 34 minutes of action. The Bucks would lose to the Jazz, 109-88.
Analysis: In his two games this year, Douglas-Roberts has scored 11 and 19 points. He's shooting a good percentage from the field and from downtown, which is a plus too. Granted his stats are jaded because of his lack of games. he third-year player missed the first 15 games after being poked in the eye during one of the final practices between the exhibition-season finale and the regular-season opener. He has to wear protective glasses during games. He'll have to continue to battle for playing time in Milwaukee, which limits his Fantasy value. Monitor him for a week or two before adding him in any Fantasy league.
News: Bucks forward Chris Douglas-Roberts saw his first action of the year on Saturday night against the Bobcats. The third-year player missed the first 15 games after being poked in the eye during one of the final practices between the exhibition-season finale and the regular-season opener. He wore protective glasses during the game. He played 20 minutes for Milwaukee, going 4 for 6 from the field -- 1 for 2 from downtown -- and 2 for 5 from the charity stripe. He finished with 11 points, one rebounds, one steal and one assist.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts averaged 9.8 points last season for New Jersey, including a career-high 31 against the Bucks Nov. 18, 2009. CDR saw extended playing time in his first game back, largely in part to the Bucks having six players dealing with injuries. He'll have to fight for minutes in Milwaukee, which will limit his Fantasy value. For now he's not worth starting in any Fantasy format. Owners in the deepest of category-based leagues should monitor him for a week or so to see what his role will be. Then make a decision whether it's worth starting or even holding onto him.
News: According to the Bucks official website, G Chris Douglas-Roberts will see his first action of the season on Saturday night against the Bobcats. Douglas-Roberts, in his third season, missed the first 15 games after being poked in the eye during one of the final practices between the exhibition-season finale and the regular-season opener. He averaged 9.8 points last season for New Jersey, including a career-high 31 against the Bucks Nov. 18, 2009
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts was an important part of the Nets' rotation this year, but he faces a bit of a logjam in Milwaukee. The Bucks will find a way to use him off the bench, but his production will likely be too inconsistent for Fantasy use. He's mostly just a scorer anyway. Leave him for deeper leagues now that he is back and healthy again.
News: Bucks SF Chris Douglas-Roberts, who has been out all season because of eye surgery, will likely return for Saturday's game against the Bobcats, play-by-play announcer Jim Paschke reported via Twitter on Friday.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts was an important part of the Nets' rotation this year, but he faces a bit of a logjam in Milwaukee. The Bucks will find a way to use him off the bench, but his production will likely be too inconsistent for Fantasy use. He's mostly just a scorer anyway. You can leave him for deeper leagues.
News: Bucks SF Chris Douglas-Roberts said Tuesday that he hopes to return from his eye injury in "like a week," as was reported on his official Twitter account. Douglas-Roberts is expected to wear goggles upon his return to the floor.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts is one of many players vying for playing time in Milwaukee. They have a logjam for small forwards and when he returns he'll have to fight for minutes. He has a nice upside though. Until he is healthy and back in the lineup he can be ignored in most Fantasy leagues. He's only worth stashing in the deepest of leagues at this time.
News: According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Bucks forward Chris Douglas-Roberts expects to resume contact in two weeks after his examination on Thursday. Douglas-Roberts hasn't been cleared to practice just yet, but said he's lucky he'll be able to play again. He had surgery to repair a tear in his retina, an injury he sustained in practice during the preseason. He'll have to wear goggles to protect his eyes for the rest of his career. "I still have some blurred vision and I still see the floaters a little, but it's much better than it was because I couldn't see anything (out of the right eye) for a week," Douglas-Roberts said Friday. The doctors said if he didn't get treated as quickly as he did he could have lost the vision in his right eye. "It kind of reminds me of my rookie year (at New Jersey) when I played really well in the preseason and then I sprained my MCL," Douglas-Roberts said. "It's hard to watch the games. You really don't understand how much you cherish this game until it's taken away from you."
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts is one of many players vying for playing time in Milwaukee. They have a logjam for small forwards and when he returns he'll have to fight for minutes. He has a nice upside though, as he did start all eight preseason games this year. Until he is healthy and back in the lineup he can be ignored in most Fantasy leagues. He's only worth stashing in the deepest of leagues at this time.
News: Bucks swingman Chris Douglas-Roberts underwent eye surgery that will sideline him for the first month of the season. He was poked in the eye in practice on Sunday.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts is part of a mess of players at the small forward position for the Bucks and his absence will likely put him behind players like Carlos Delfino and Corey Maggette when he does return. He has nice upside, but is in a logjam that could limit his Fantasy appeal so he is not worth stashing outside of the deepest of leagues.
News: Bucks G Chris Douglas-Roberts is going to be a question mark heading into the season opener in New Orleans, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel on Monday. Douglas-Roberts is dealing with blurred vision in his right eye after being poked in the eye in practice on Sunday.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts' eye became discolored and swollen and he could not practice on Monday and that is not a good sign for Wednesday's opener. He said he can't really see out of the eye as of Monday. CDR should be considered day to day right now and his season opener is definitely in jeopardy. Still, he shouldn't miss too much of the first week of the season, if anything. Douglas-Roberts should be considered a viable start in the deeper Fantasy leagues only at this point.
News: Bucks forward Chris Douglas-Roberts was one of three players to net 18 points in Friday's preseason loss to the Pistons. He shot 8 for 14 from the field and made 2 of his 4 free-throw attempts. Douglas-Roberts made two steals, grabbed two boards and had two blocked shots.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts averaged 9.8 points and 3.0 rebounds last season for the Nets, playing in 67 games and making 38 starts. He started last season really well, averaging 17.3 points and 5.5 boards per game in the month of November, but would see his production and playing time decrease as the season progressed. He'll have to find his niche with the Bucks and excel this year to have a big Fantasy impact. Consider him a late-round flier on Draft Day.
News: The Nets traded Chris Douglas-Roberts to Milwaukee in exchange for a second-round pick in 2012. Douglas-Roberts averaged 9.8 points and 3.0 rebounds last season for the Nets, playing in 67 games and making 38 starts.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts got off to an outstanding start last season, averaging 17.3 points and 5.5 rebounds per game in November. It was all down hill after that. He dealt with a bout with swine flu and was largely inconsistent for the remainder of the season. He has talent to be a solid Fantasy contributor, but has been questioned as a player with a bad attitude and questionable focus. He'll be worth a late-round flier in deeper formats this fall, but will not be in anybody's starting lineup in the early portion of the season.
News: Nets G Chris Douglas-Roberts scored 17 points in a win over the Hornets on Saturday. Douglas-Roberts shot 6 of 12 from the field while adding three rebounds, three assists and a steal. It was just the second time in his last five games that he has reached double figures.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts is averaging 9.3 points and 1.5 assists over his last five games. He is played sparingly and provides minimal Fantasy value. Use him on 12-team and deeper leagues only at this juncture of the Fantasy season.
News: Nets G Chris Douglas-Roberts scored 10 points in a win over the Kings on Wednesday. Douglas-Roberts shot 3 of 9 from the field while adding three assists and and a steal in 22 minutes.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts is averaging nine points over his last five games. However, his scoring is very erratic and his minutes are sporadic. Because he doesn't offer very much in any other statistical category, Douglas-Roberts can best be used as a low-end Fantasy option in 12-team or deeper leagues.
News: Nets guard Chris Douglas-Roberts played for only the second-straight game as he was inserted into the starting lineup once again for the injured Courtney Lee on Tuesday against Atlanta. On Wednesday against the Sixers, CDR came off the bench but played 26 minutes as he scored 23 points. He shot 9 of 15 from the field and went 1 for 2 from long range with two assists and two rebounds.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts has the ability to put up big numbers for your Fantasy team but the Nets are so screwed up, they can't commit to having him in the lineup consistently. He really only has value in deeper leagues due to his lack of playing time.
News: According to the team's official Web site, Nets G Courtney Lee (ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday night's game against Cleveland. He will once again be replaced by Chris Douglas-Roberts in the starting lineup.
Analysis: Lee had been playing very well prior to the injury and he carries some Fantasy appeal as a No. 3 or 4 guard, depending on the size of your league. He averaged 19.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.3 assists in his previous four games prior to getting hurt. Douglas-Roberts has seen most of his early-season Fantasy appeal fade away. He had just four points and three rebounds in 31 minutes of action starting for Lee Sunday against Washington.
News: Nets guard Chris Douglas-Roberts continues to be frustrated by a lack of playing time. Douglas-Roberts insists that he's healthy and he did play on Wednesday against Milwaukee despite being on the injured list with back issues. CDR played just four minutes in the game and did not score on one shot attempt.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts sat out on Tuesday and played nine minutes on Feb. 6 at Detroit. It seems likely he's going to be traded as he's not happy in New Jersey. Who would be happy playing for a team with four wins over the first half of the season? Douglas-Roberts is worth stashing in deeper leagues but should not be used until his minutes rise once again.
News: The Newark Star-Ledger reports Nets guard Chris Douglas-Roberts was a healthy scratch for Tuesday's game at Cleveland. Douglas-Roberts was iffy after experiencing back spasms in the second half of Saturday's loss to Detroit, but coach Kiki Vandeweghe decided to keep him out despite him being ready to play. "Reminds me a little bit of last year," Douglas-Roberts said, insisting he was healthy. "You get surprised a lot in this league. It is what it is." Douglas-Roberts said he would not seek to talk to Vandeweghe or president Rod Thorn about his situation, and his status for Wednesday's game against Milwaukee is uncertain.
Analysis: This sounds like a situation that could get messy. Be cautious with Douglas-Roberts and keep him reserved for Wednesday's game and hopefully we'll know more about his status after the All-Star break. When healthy and active, Douglas-Roberts has become a low-end Fantasy option, so he could use some sort of motivation to start playing well again.
News: Nets SG Chris Douglas-Roberts did not play Tuesday against the Cavaliers due to back spasms.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts has been extremely disappointing after getting off to a good start this season and despite his upside is currently not performing at a level where anybody can use him in Fantasy. Maybe this will be the wakeup call he needs to get going again.
News: According to the Newark Star-Ledger, Chris Douglas-Roberts will be taken out of the starting lineup for the Nets' game Tuesday night against Detroit. Jarvis Hayes, who had 18 points and eight rebounds off the bench in the team's last game against Philadelphia, will take CDR's spot in the starting lineup.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts has been extremely disappointing after getting off to a good start this season and despite his upside is currently not performing at a level where anybody can use him in Fantasy. Maybe this will be the wakeup call he needs to get going again. Hayes has appeal in larger leagues, but should not be thought of a long-term solution.
News: Nets guard Chris Douglas-Roberts scored eight points on Friday in a loss to Washington. CDR added nine rebounds and two assists and shot 3 for 7 from the field over 29 minutes on the floor.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts was a consistent 20-point per game scorer earlier in the season but hasn't been there in quite some time now. He's' averaging just 5.8 points per game over his last five and his average is down to 13.4 on the year. Douglas-Roberts was shooting a lot early in the year with the Nets doing so horribly but has since taken a backseat to other scorers in Jersey. That has a lot to do with his fall from Fantasy grace. At this point, only use him in the deepest of leagues.
News: Nets guard Chris Douglas-Roberts is really struggling to score of late. Douglas-Roberts, averaging 14.6 points per game on the year in his rookie season, managed just eight points on Monday at the Clippers. He shot 3 for 7 from the field over 29 minutes and added three assists and three rebounds with three steals.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts has scored in single digits in three straight games now and is averaging just 8.4 points per game over his last five. That comes with 3.8 boards and 2.4 assists as his numbers are down across the board and his playing time is following suit. He's scoring under 10 points per game in January over the first eight contests and that is likely because he's no longer need to be such a high scorer with Yi Jianlian, Devin Harris and Brook Lopez playing well. Douglas-Roberts might be nothing more than a low-end option for the deeper leagues at least for the current time.
News: Nets guard Chris Douglas-Roberts scored 10 points in a loss at New Orleans on Friday night. CDR shot 3 of 10 overall from the field and grabbed six rebounds with three assists.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts is averaging 15.6 points per game on the season but is thus far having his worst month yet after four January games. He's dropping just 11 per game this month thus far and that comes with fewer assists (1.8) and rebounds (3.5). After seeing over 15 shots per game in November and December, CDR is putting up fewer than 10 thus far in the new year. He should turn that around and have his averages even out over the course of the month but he's struggling right now. With New Jersey one of two NBA teams to play just twice over Week 12 (Jan. 11-17), now is a safe time to keep Douglas-Roberts on the bench.
News: Nets guard Chris Douglas-Roberts returned from a three-game absence due to an ankle injury on Wednesday in a win over the Knicks. Douglas-Roberts scored 17 points on 8 of 15 shooting over 37 minutes and appeared to be perfectly healthy. He added five rebounds and four assists.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts was right back to his season averages in his return to the court and that means there shouldn't be any lingering issues. He's been solid all year for the Nets and is viewed as a No. 3 Fantasy guard.
News: Nets guard Chris Douglas-Roberts said via Twitter that he plans to play Wednesday night against New York despite missing Monday's game against Oklahoma City with an ankle injury.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts, who has missed three games with the ankle injury, is a risky starting option in Fantasy leagues. Keep an eye on how he does in his return, but don't plan on using him this scoring period.
News: Nets SG Chris Douglas-Roberts was ruled out for Monday's game against the Thunder and is questionable to return Wednesday against the Knicks as he continues to deal with an ankle injury. There is still no official return date for him.
Analysis: CDR suffered what appeared to be a bad ankle sprain and it's hard to say when he will be able to return. The Nets had three games for Week 10 (Dec. 28-Jan. 3) but he's already missed one and is likely to miss some more. He needs to be kept on benches in all Fantasy leagues until he proves healthy enough to return to the court.
News: Nets G Chris Douglas-Roberts (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against Oklahoma City, according to the team. There is still no official return date for him.
Analysis: CDR is far too rsiky to start for Week 10 (Dec. 28-Jan. 3). The Nets are slated for just three games. Going forward, his value should be that of a No. 3 guard or forward in most leagues (depending on your league's eligibility rules).
News: Nets SG Chris Douglas-Roberts missed his second game in a row due to an ankle injury suffered a week ago against the Lakers. Douglas-Roberts is considered questionable for Monday's game against the Thunder.
Analysis: CDR suffered what appeared to be a bad ankle sprain and it's hard to say when he will be able to return. Fantasy owners should not insert him into active Fantasy lineups until it is announced that he is ready to return, which means he should be benched for Fantasy Week 10 (Dec. 28-Jan. 3). When healthy, CDR has emerged as a viable No. 3 Fantasy option.
News: The New York Post reports that Nets coach Kiki Vandeweghe has ruled Chris Douglas-Roberts (ankle) out for Tuesday's game against Minnesota. He will be re-evaluated after that.
Analysis: CDR suffered what appeared to be a bad ankle sprain and could easily miss another game or two. Fantasy owners should not insert him into active Fantasy lineups until it is announced that he is ready to return. When healthy, CDR has emerged as a viable No. 3 Fantasy guard or forward (depending on your league's eligibility rules).
News: According to the Nets' official Web site, Chris Douglas-Roberts (ankle) is considered doubtful for Wednesday's game against Minnesota. He hopes to play Saturday vs. Houston.
Analysis: The Nets play just two games in Week 9 (Dec. 21-27) and CDR is doubtful for one of them. Fantasy owners should leave him reserved in all weekly formats as a result.
News: Nets G Chris Douglas-Roberts (ankle) left Saturday's game against the Lakers in the fourth quarter after suffering an ankle injury. He injured himself while driving to the basket and was too injured to shoot free throws after he was fouled on the play. The Nets said X-rays on his ankle were negative.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts appeared to be in a lot of pain and while the severity of the injury likely won't be known until further tests are concluded, the initial reaction on the court indicated that this could be more than just a short-term injury. And with the Nets playing just two games in Fantasy Week 9 (Dec. 21-27), we don't think Fantasy owners should be counting on him going into the week.
News: Nets SG Chris Douglas-Roberts tallied 16 points, three rebounds and four assists as he returned to action after missing three games with a knee injury.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts is averaging 16 points, 4 1/2 rebounds and almost two assists this season and is worth using as a No. 3 guard again now he's healthy.
News: New Jersey shooting guard Chris Douglas-Roberts is not going to play on Wednesday against the Jazz due to his lingering knee injury. CDR has said he wants to take his time returning so as to not re-aggravate the injury. The next game he could return for would be Friday at Toronto. He will be questionable for that game.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts preliminarily had said he wants to return as quickly as possible but is now being a little smarter about his injury. This is only going to frustrate his Fantasy owners further, however, as it seems he could take his time returning now. Hopefully he gets back on the court on Friday. When healthy, Douglas-Roberts is a No. 3 Fantasy option.
News: The Newark Star-Ledger reports that Nets guard Chris Douglas-Roberts will not play Tuesday night at Cleveland and is doubtful for Wednesday against Utah. "The season is still young," Douglas-Roberts said. "I don't want to do anything that's going to hurt myself for the long run." He previously sat out Sunday's game against Atlanta with a knee injury.
Analysis: This contradicts what Douglas-Roberts said on Monday that he would play. His quote: "Either way, I wasn't going to be out (for much) time. I'm looking forward to play the next game." Douglas-Roberts needs to make up his mind because he is hurting Fantasy owners with his flip-flopping. Unfortunately you have to keep him reserved in all leagues and hope he can return soon. When healthy, Douglas-Roberts is a No. 3 Fantasy option.
News: The Newark Star-Ledger reports Nets guard Chris Douglas-Roberts, who sat out Sunday's game against Atlanta with a mild left knee sprain, should be OK. An MRI confirmed there was no serious damage. "I could walk around on it this morning," Douglas-Roberts said. "Either way, I wasn't going to be out (for much) time. I'm looking forward to play the next game." He is expected to play Tuesday night at Cleveland. The Nets are listing him as day-to-day.
Analysis: It appears safe to keep Douglas-Roberts active for Week 8 since he plans to play against the Cavaliers on Tuesday. Consider Douglas-Roberts a No. 3 Fantasy option for this scoring period and hope he doesn't suffer a setback.
News:Chris Douglas-Roberts was scratched for Sunday's game against Atlanta due to a sprained left knee that he suffered Friday against Indiana. He is day to day and is considered questionable for Tuesday's game at Cleveland.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts will now be a risky play for Week 8 (Dec. 14-20) as a result of this news. The extent of the injury will not be known until the MRI results are revealed and while the Nets do play four games in Week 8 the lack of a guarantee he'll play in any games this week makes him someone to reserve for healthier alternatives.
News: The Newark Star-Ledger reports that Chris Douglas-Roberts was scratched for Sunday's game against Atlanta due to a sprained left knee that he likely suffered Friday against Indiana. He is awaiting the results of an MRI.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts will now be a risky play for Week 8 (Dec. 14-20) as a result of this news.

News: Nets SF Chris Douglas-Roberts scored 20 points to go along with three rebounds and three blocks Tuesday at Chicago. He has scored at least 20 points in three of his last four games, averaging 19.5.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts was one of the Nets' leading scorers when Devin Harris was sidelined by a groin injury, and he looks like he'll maintain that role even with Harris back. He's worth using as a No. 3 Fantasy guard or forward even though he's not much more than a scorer.
News: New Jersey SG Chris Douglas-Roberts had a poor showing on Sunday in a loss to the Lakers. He scored only five points in the game on 2 for 11 shoting. He had three rebounds and four assists as well. Douglas-Roberts had scored 21 points two nights prior at Sacramento.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts has come back down to earth some of late, averaging only 14.4 points per game over his last five starts. He had the potential to put up 20-plus points on a nightly basis but also has games like Sunday's where he will finish in single digits. He is deserving of a roster spot in most Fantasy formats and should remain active.
News: One day after setting career highs with 27 points and 12 rebounds, Nets SG Chris Douglas-Roberts topped one of those marks with 31 points Wednesday at Milwaukee. He also had 10 rebounds, giving him two straight double-doubles. "We lost. That's the only thing that means anything to me. Wins and losses. We lost. I don't pay attention to how many points and how many minutes I play," Douglas-Roberts said.
Analysis: But Fantasy owners do! Seriously, Douglas-Roberts needs to stop with all the downer talk with the way he's playing right now. He's averaging 23.0 points in the last six games in which he played 30 minutes, which he should do routinely going forward. Clearly, he deserves a roster spot in all Fantasy leagues.
News: Nets SG Chris Douglas-Roberts, recently back from the flu, was back in form Tuesday against the Pacers. In fact, he set career highs with 27 points and 12 rebounds, but he wasn't too thrilled about it afterward. "It's nothing if we don't win," Douglas-Roberts said. "My numbers don't matter if we're losing because you are labeled a loser. It doesn't matter what you're doing on a losing team. Nobody really cares. I know I don't."
Analysis: Wrong! Fantasy owners care plenty, and with this performance, Douglas-Roberts reminded them he could play a significant role on a Nets team deprived of talent. The illness set him back a bit, but he's averaging 21.4 points in the last five games in which he played 30 minutes, which he should do routinely going forward. Clearly, he deserves a roster spot in all Fantasy leagues.
News: Nets SG Chris Douglas-Roberts was able to return to action from the flu on Friday against the Magic but he failed to be much of a factor in the game. He played 18 minutes off the bench, scoring five points and grabbing two rebounds.
Analysis: CDR missed three games with the flu and was not able to shake the rust off on Friday at Orlando. The Nets are getting a bit healthier, which is not necessarily a good thing for Douglas-Roberts owners. Wait to see how he performs on Saturday before making a decision on him for Week 4 (Nov. 16-22). He has the potential to be a viable starter when healthy and active.
News: The Nets don't expect Chris Douglas-Roberts to return before this weekend, according to The Associated Press. He has missed the last two games with the swine flu and will miss Wednesday's game against the 76ers.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts averaged 21.3 points in his last three games before catching the illness, emerging as one of the best scoring options for the rebuilding Nets. His potential makes him worth stashing in all Fantasy formats until he returns, which might happen as soon as Friday at Orlando.
News: The New Jersey Nets say forward Chris Douglas-Roberts has swine flu. Douglas-Roberts already had been sidelined with flu-like symptoms. Nets president Rod Thorn confirmed on Saturday that Douglas-Roberts tested positive for the H1N1 virus. Thorn says the player has been treated and the Nets are following all precautionary measures called for by the NBA. The diagnosis is the latest blow to a team that has been hit by a wave of injuries. The Nets are the only team in the league without a victory and at 0-6 are off to the worst start in franchise history.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts has been averaging 15.6 points and 4.8 rebounds in five games. There is now a league policy when you have flu-like symptoms due to the H1N1 scare that states a player has got to be isolated for a certain amount of time. The league mandates that a player be quarantined for 24 hours. At this point, it seems he'll be a risky play in Week 3 (Nov. 9-15) as well.
News: Nets SG Chris Douglas-Roberts did not play on Friday against the 76ers. He is considered questionable for Saturday against the Celtics. The Newark Star-Ledger reported that Douglas-Roberts did not travel with the team to Philadelphia.
Analysis: There is now a league policy when you have flu-like symptoms due to the H1N1 scare that states a player has got to be isolated for a certain amount of time. The league mandates that a player be quarantined for 24 hours. He should be fine for Week 3 (Nov. 9-15), but you'll have to monitor his progress over the weekend. Wait to see if he plays on Saturday before making a decision on him for the upcoming scoring period.
News: Nets G Chris Douglas-Roberts Tweeted on his verified Twitter account Friday that he was too weak to stand up in the shower, a day after the Newark Star-Ledger reported that Roberts did not ride with the team Thursday on its bus ride from New Jersey to Philadelphia. The Nets they will face the 76ers Friday night.
Analysis: There is now a league policy when you have flu-like symptoms due to the H1N1 scare that states a player has got to be isolated for a certain amount of time. The league mandates that a player be quarantined for 24 hours and that policy along with the fact that it doesn't sound like CDR is even with the team leads us to believe he won't play Friday night. Take proper precautions in all daily lineup leagues. He should be fine for Week 3 (Nov. 9-15), but you'll have to monitor his progress over the weekend.
News: The Newark Star-Ledger reports that Chris Douglas-Roberts did not ride with the team Thursday on its bus ride from New Jersey to Philadelphia where they will face the 76ers Friday night due to flu-like symptoms.
Analysis: Coach Lawrence Frank said that they are not listing Douglas-Roberts as anything for Friday. The report adds that there is a league policy when you have flu-like symptoms -- he has got to be isolated for a certain amount of time. The league mandates that a player be quarantined for 24 hours and that makes him highly questionable for Friday's action. Take proper precautions in all daily lineup leagues. He should be fine for Week 3 (Nov. 9-15).
News: Nets starting SG Chris Douglas-Roberts led the team with 20 points in a loss to Charlotte on Monday night. Douglas-Roberts shot 7 of 17 and hit both threes he attempted. He added six boards, two steals and a block.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts scored 14 combined points in his first two games this season but has dropped 25 and 20 in the next two. His rebounding numbers are improving as well. Douglas-Roberts should be a solid Fantasy option in his sophomore NBA season with the Nets struggling to find consistent scoring. He is an excellent Fantasy sleeper and is worth using in most deeper Fantasy leagues right now.
News: Nets swingman Chris Douglas-Roberts had by far his most productive game of the season Saturday in Washington. He scored 25 points with 4 rebounds and 3 assists. He had failed to score more than 8 points in the first two games of the season.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts was a lot more aggressive in this game than he was in the first two, something that was apparent by the 12 free throws he attempted (making 11 of them). He attacked the rim a ton in the game and showed glimpses of why we viewed him as such a strong sleeper going into the season. Now that he's on track, consider activating him for the Nets' upcoming four-game scoring period.
News: The Nets' Chris Douglas-Roberts, who won the starting job at small forward over rookie Terrence Williams this preseason, didn't look like he intended on keeping it in the season opener Wednesday at Minnesota. He had eight points and one rebound in 24 minutes. Williams, meanwhile, had 15 points and 10 rebounds in 31 minutes off the bench.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts scored in double figures in every game this preseason, averaging 18 points. The Nets didn't give him many opportunities to score in the opener, but he obviously has the ability. Don't give up on him as a sleeper yet, but continue to monitor how the Nets divide minutes between him and Williams.
News: Nets SG Chris Douglas-Roberts was able to play on Wednesday in a preseason game against the Knicks despite leaving Friday's game with a strained neck. He put up 26 points, going 8 for 18 from the field. He added five rebounds, four assists, four steals and two blocked shots to his stat line.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts could be in line for a significant role in the offense with the Nets not looking like they'll have many scoring options now that Vince Carter is in Orlando. Consider CDR a late-round sleeper in Fantasy and don't let his injury deter you from taking him.
News:Chris Douglas-Roberts scored 13 points for the Nets in Friday's preseason game before leaving with a strained neck. X-rays were negative. "I'm going to ice it down, do what I have to do tonight, see how it feels in the morning, but I don't want to be missing anything," Douglas-Roberts said.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts is averaging 17.0 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists through five preseason games. He could be in line for a significant role in the offense with the Nets not looking like they'll have many scoring options now that Vince Carter is in Orlando. Consider CDR a late-round sleeper in Fantasy.
News: Nets SG Chris Douglas-Roberts got another start at small forward Tuesday against the Celtics and again played well, finishing with 19 points and four rebounds in 35 minutes. His biggest competition for the starting job, Terrence Williams, played only 17 minutes off the bench. Douglas-Roberts is now averaging 18 points in four preseason games.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts, a second-year player out of Memphis, is making a strong case for a starting role, and that would give him definite value in Fantasy since the Nets have few scoring options with Vince Carter gone. He's still on the deeper end of Fantasy sleepers, but he's at least in the discussion.
News: Nets SG Chris Douglas-Roberts started in Friday's preseason game against the 76ers and scored a team-high 20 points on 9 of 15 shooting. He added 5 rebounds and a steal in 34 minutes.
Analysis: Nobody played more minutes on Friday than did Douglas-Roberts, who started for the team at times at the end of last year, as well. Still, he figures to be the sixth man in Jersey heading into the regular season. Treat him as a low-end Fantasy sleeper option with obvious upside.
News: Nets rookie guard Chris Douglas-Roberts started Monday against Charlotte for the injured Keyon Dooling (calf) and had nine points, four assists and two rebounds. There was thought of starting Douglas-Roberts over Vince Carter, but Dooling's injury allowed the move to happen without taking Carter out of the starting group.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts is part of the future for the Nets, but he's likely going to be a sixth man at best. For now, don't plan on drafting Douglas-Roberts next season, but he could have potential down the road if given the right opportunity in the lineup.
News: The New York Post reports Nets guard Vince Carter might be heading to the bench for the final four games of the season. Carter said with the Nets out of playoff contention, he would have no problem if Chris Douglas-Roberts started over him for experience. "I don't have a problem with that. When I'm in I'm going to play hard and try to just continue to set the tone. As captain of this team, I feel that's what's expected," he said. "I'm not going to come out and disrespect the game."
Analysis: Even if Douglas-Roberts is starting, don't expect a huge boost in Fantasy production. For now, consider him a low-end guard, and he should only be owned in deep keeper formats at this time.
News: Nets SG Chris Douglas-Roberts scored 13 points on 5-for-10 shooting in Sunday's game against the Sixers. He grabbed five boards in the game as well, adding two assists.
Analysis: This is the kind of thing that Douglas-Roberts owners want to see out of CDR in the future. He'll do very little for Fantasy owners in this season but is a long-term keeper.
News: Nets SG Chris Douglas-Roberts came off the bench for 25 minutes to lead New Jersey in scoring on Monday in a loss to Milwaukee. Douglas-Roberts shot 6-of-11 with a three and scored 14 points with four assists and three rebounds.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts is averaging just five points per game over his last five contests. He rarely contributes as he did on Monday and we wouldn't expect too many repeat performances. He only belongs on rosters in the deepest of Fantasy leagues, if that.
News: Memphis rookie guard Chris Douglas-Roberts, who sat out the second half against Cleveland a few days ago with a stomach bug, was back to playing a full game at Cleveland on Wednesday. Douglas-Roberts shot 3-of-6 from the field over 17 minutes and scored seven points.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts has been playing more and better for the Nets of late and is averaging 10 points, three assists and a steal per game over his last five. His illness has gone but he's still really too inconsistent to use in anything but the deepest of Fantasy leagues.
News: Nets rookie Chris Douglas-Roberts sat out the second half of Sunday's game against the Cavaliers with a stomach virus. He is questionable for the second leg of the home and home series against the Cavaliers at Cleveland. The virus came a day after his best NBA performance when he capped a career-high 18-point performance with a game-clinching 3-pointer at the end of Friday's game against the Heat.
Analysis: This stomach bug most likely will be a one-game thing and Douglas-Roberts will be back and active. He is a sleeper candidate off the waiver wire and this stomach virus should do nothing to change that status.
News: Nets rookie Chris Douglas-Roberts capped a career-high 18-point performance with a game-clinching 3-pointer and the Nets spoiled the return of NBA leading scorer Dwyane Wade to the Miami lineup after a one-game absence with a 96-88 victory over the Heat on Friday. "He is just seizing the moment," Vince Carter said of Douglas-Roberts. "Now he is locked in. One thing I told him and we didn't talk much. All I said was: 'Here is your opportunity, take advantage and make the best of it."'
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts, who got Memphis within seconds of a national title last season, certainly taken advantage since Harris went down with sprained left shoulder last Sunday. He had a career-best 14 points in a win over the Knicks on Wednesday and he topped that against Wade and company. He had nine points in the second quarter in helping New Jersey take a 12-point halftime lead, and he added four points in a 9-0 fourth-quarter spurt that snapped a tie and gave the Nets an 82-73 lead. He is getting a chance to play with Yi Jianlian ineffective and Ryan Anderson out due to injury. View him as a possible sleeper off the wire, but don't rely on him as anything more than a No. 4 option at this point of the season.
News: Nets rookie SG Chris Douglas-Roberts saw 13 minutes on Sunday against the Magic with Vince Carter sitting the game out due to injury. The rookie out of Memphis scored six points on 2-of-5 shooting.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts could see more time if Carter misses any, though VC isn't supposed to miss much more time. That keeps Douglas-Roberts someone to avoid in Fantasy.
News: Nets SG Chris Douglas-Roberts averaged a point-per-minute during Monday's game against the Thunder. Douglas-Roberts came off the bench to play eight minutes and poured in eight points on 2-of-2 shooting from the field and 4-of-4 from the free-throw line. He also had two rebounds and one assist.
Analysis: CDR has played in just 16 games as a rookie and hasn't been the impact rookie the Nets were hoping for after a successful career at Memphis. Douglas-Roberts still might have a bright future ahead, but remains nothing more than a long-term Fantasy keeper.
News: Nets SG Chris Douglas-Roberts, sidelined for much of the season with a knee injury, played for only the fourth time this season Tuesday against the Wizards. He finished with six points and two assists in 10 minutes off the bench.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts is a rookie who likely won't get much more than 10 minutes per game. He should remain on waivers in virtually all Fantasy leagues.
News:The Sports Xchange notes that Chris Douglas-Roberts has been out nearly one week with a sprained right knee. Officially, it's a Grade I sprain of the medial collateral ligament. At the time of his injury, the team said he would be out for 2-to-4 weeks.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts is a rookie who is not going to be in line for a ton of playing time even when he does return from his injury. Let him prove both healthy and productive before adding him off the waiver wire.
News:The Sports Xchange notes that rookie swingman Chris Douglas-Roberts is the player most familiar with the offense the Nets hope to install this season. It is basically the dribble-drive system John Calipari used at Memphis, Douglas-Roberts' former stamping grounds. "It's going to be great for us," Douglas-Roberts said. "We have athletic guys who can get to the basket, and that's what this offense is about. It's a drive-and-kick system, it's perfectly suited for guys who can get into the paint."
Analysis: By all accounts, most experts believe the Nets got a real steal with Douglas-Roberts falling into the second round and he's going to be able to make the team without a problem. The problem for him will be where he fits into the rotation. He's unlikely to see 30 minutes per game at least to begin the season, but will be a Fantasy sleeper. He averaged 18.1 ppg in a sterling senior season last season with NCAA runner-up Memphis.
News: Nets second-round pick Chris Douglas Roberts had an impressive first game in the Orlando Summer League, scoring 15 points with five rebounds and two steals Monday night against the Magic. He shot 7-for-14 from the field.
Analysis: Douglas-Roberts got the most playing time of anybody on the floor with 30 minutes, a sign that the Nets really want to see what he has to offer. By all accounts, most experts believe the Nets got a real steal with Douglas-Roberts falling into the second round and he's going to be able to make the team without a problem. The problem for him will be where he fits into the rotation. He's unlikely to see 30 minutes per game at least to begin the season, but will be a Fantasy sleeper.
