Donald Sloan finished with 19 points (6-13 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-6 FT), five assists, and three rebounds in 35 minutes during the Brooklyn Nets ' 129-105 loss to the Pacers on Sunday.
Sloan and Shane Larkin shared the backcourt for much of the contest, and Sloan managed to score a season-high 19 points. He was also rather efficient, committing zero turnovers albeit in a blowout loss, and Sloan now has three straight games with exactly five assists. The Nets are only playing for pride during the last two contests, and veterans are receiving rest. As a result, Sloan and several other Nets could be in the conversation for cheap dart throws over the final two regular season games.
Donald Sloan (illness) returned to action in Wednesday's 121-103 loss to the Wizards, finishing with no points (0-5 FG) and five assists over 17 minutes.
Sloan missed Sunday's loss to the Pelicans while dealing with an upper-respiratory illness, but with two full days off between games, he was able to slot back into his usual role on the second unit. Shane Larkin hasn't really offered standout production since claiming the starting role at point guard, but he's been steady enough to stave off Sloan.
Donald Sloan has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Pelicans with an upper respiratory illness.
Sloan came down with an illness early Sunday morning and will now be held out of their matchup with the Pelicans. With Sloan sidelined, look for Shane Larkin to handle the bulk of the playing time at the point. Considering it's just an illness, it's not expected to keep him sidelined for long and he could be back as soon as Wednesday's outing versus the Wizards.
Donald Sloan will move to a bench role for Thursday's game against the Cavaliers, Mike Mazzeo of ESPN.com reports.
With Sloan producing only one double-digit scoring performance in the last five games, coach Tony Brown has elected to shake things up, inserting Shane Larkin into a starting role. Both Sloan and Larkin haven't been seeing huge differences in their minutes over the last few games as it is, but Sloan figures to see the smaller portion of the timeshare at point guard nonetheless beginning with Thursday's game.
Donald Sloan failed to score (0-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt) while adding six assists and three rebounds over 27 minutes in Tuesday's 105-100 loss to the Hornets.
Sloan hasn't typically been this inefficient from the field, but he's been very reluctant to look for his own offense of late, tallying single-digit points and no more than six shots attempts in four of his last five games. His assist totals have been hit or miss during that stretch as well, but with backup point guard Shane Larkin producing equally mediocre numbers off the bench, it doesn't appear Sloan's starting job is in danger.
