Al Iannazzone of the Bergen Record reports (via blog):

Chris Douglas-Roberts moved to bench

Chris Douglas-Roberts saw it coming and so did everyone else.

Douglas-Roberts’ playing time has been cut lately and his production has dropped off markedly – just one double-digit scoring night in his last nine games. So coach Kiki Vandeweghe is moving Douglas-Roberts to the bench starting tonight and replacing him with Jarvis Hayes in the starting lineup.

“He said I haven’t been myself in the past month or however long and he wants me to get back to that,” Douglas-Roberts said after shootaround. “He said he feels coming off the bench would be better suited.”

“I wasn’t surprised. I just…I wasn’t surprised.”

Vandeweghe informed Douglas-Roberts about his decision to make the change yesterday. The timing seems to coincide with Hayes’ shot and game coming around.
