OAKLAND -- The Warriors will be without backup point guard Toney Douglas for at least two weeks due to a stress reaction in his left tibia, the club announced Tuesday night.
Coach Mark Jackson said that Douglas, who has averaged 16 minutes off the bench over the club's first seven games, has been playing with pain in his lower leg for awhile, but an MRI revealed the stress injury. He will be reevaluated after two weeks of rest.
Jackson said that Andre Iguodala would assume some of the backup point guard minutes behind starter Stephen Curry and that second-year man Kent Bazemore would be the next option, with rookie Nemanja Nedovic also a possibility.
Douglas, 25, signed a free agent contract with the Warriors in July. He was averaging 6.4 points and 1.6 assists in seven games.
