Toney Douglas started at shooting guard and scored 12 points on 4-of-10 shooting (including two threes) with one rebounds, six assists and two steals over 31 minutes in Friday’s overtime loss to the Blazers.
Douglas and Tim Frazier (13 points, 4-of-6 shooting, one three, 4-of-5 FTs, three rebounds, four assists) both made it work for speculating owners tonight. Anthony Davis then proceeded to leave the game due to a knee injury that the Pelicans did their best to talk down after the game, but they have nothing to play for and they’re taking zero risks with that guy.
Even if Norris Cole comes back, this would leave both players in prime position to put up regular numbers for owners. Frazier isn’t guaranteed to be re-signed even though it seems logical that the Pelicans would do exactly that if Davis did miss time, and you can make a case that both of them are must-own players in 12-team leagues, even if they’re not quite that because Davis and Cole could return to squash their value.
