Found November 13, 2013 on NBA Injury News:
The Golden State Warriors are expecting their guard Toney Douglas to miss approximately two weeks due to a stress reaction in his left tibia. Douglas will be using this time off to rest his leg. He was evaluated by doctors on Tuesday and will be re-evaluated at the end of a two week period. “Like anything else, guys have to be ready, guys have to step up and embrace the opportunity, and we move forward,” head coach Mark Jackson said before Tuesday’s game against the Pistons. “It’s a credit to our depth and versatility that we’ll find a way to still get it done.” (via Rusty Simmons, sfgate.com) Douglas has been serving as the team’s backup point guard since Jarrett Jack signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Douglas has been averaging 6.4 points and 1.6 assists within 16 minutes in seven games for the Warriors. He has made 43.6 percent of his shots and 44 percent of his three-point shots. Without Douglas available, Andre Iguodala is expected to see more time at the point guard position than other spots on the floor. Second year guard Kent Bazemore could also see extra minutes on the floor due to Douglas’ injury. Of course, coach Jackson has plenty of depth, and if Iguodala and Bazemore can’t get the job done behind Stephen Curry, he’s also got rookie Nemanja Nedovic to send to the court.
