CDR poised to step in for injured MKG

December, 10, 2013
The Charlotte Bobcats are dipping into the D-League after losing Michael Kidd-Gilchrist to a hand injury likely to sideline the swingman for a month.

Sources close to the situation told that the Bobcats are poised to call up Chris Douglas-Roberts out of the D-League as early as Wednesday.

Douglas-Roberts, 26, is averaging nearly 19 points a game with the Texas Legends after going to training camp with the New York Knicks.

The former second-round pick, drafted No. 40 overall in 2008 by New Jersey, Douglas-Roberts had a brief stint last season with the Dallas Mavericks (parent club of the Legends) after two seasons with the Nets and spending the 2010-11 season in Milwaukee.
