Toney Douglas would likely be the player traded for Flynn. However, Douglas is coming off major shoulder surgery, which in theory would make him tough to deal. But Flynn is a similar medical risk. The 6-foot guard out of Syracuse had hip surgery last July and was limited to 53 games in his second year, not including a stint in the D-League. New York Daily News

There is a very good reason why Toney Douglas struggled against the Boston Celtics. The Knicks' backup guard was playing with a damaged right shoulder that required surgery Wednesday. According to the club, Douglas had arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shooting arm. Team physician Dr. Answorth Allen performed the operation. Douglas' recovery time is expected to be 12 to 16 weeks, and the injury also raises concerns about how much of an impact it could have on his future. The Florida State product averaged 10.6 points this season, his second in the NBA. New York Daily News

D’Antoni adjusted his starting lineup Saturday, inserting Toney Douglas in place of Landry Fields, and noted some progress. But he conceded that at times, he was still experimenting. “It’s not a consistent thing from night to night that I know I can count on that and count on this,” he said, “and that’s where we kind of get in trouble. I’m grasping at straws a little bit, and hopefully, I can settle down and not do that.” New York Times

Since Chauncey Billups went down with a bruised thigh last week, Toney Douglas has stepped up and played well in his absence. In his second game as a starter this season, Douglas went off for 24 points, 5 assists and 4 rebounds in the New York Knicks' win over the New Orleans Hornets. Of all the role players in New York, few are enjoying the roster overhaul as much as Douglas. He's able to score with the second unit and has two superstars to find when he's playing with the starters. "It's great. I just have to pass right or pass left. It's a very good thing for me," Douglas told HOOPSWORLD. At first, Douglas was worried that he would be included in the three-team trade that yielded Carmelo Anthony. Once the trade deadline passed, he was able to relax and enjoy the situation. "It's been cool," he said. "I'm happy all of the trades and everything that happened is over because now we can just stay focused and win games. Nobody has to worry about trade rumors because all of the trades are done. It's easier. I love it here and it's a great place to play. I just want to continue getting better each and every day." HoopsWorld

With speculation building that the surgically repaired meniscus in Paul's left knee might have stolen the electrifying burst that made him who he is -- or was -- Paul said emphatically Wednesday night that there's nothing wrong with him physically. The naked eye, which for the first time in a long time can actually track Paul's movements with the ball in his hands, tells a different story. "I'm good," Paul said. "My knee feels better than it has at any other point. That's the crazy thing about it. My body's great. I feel like I can go by a guy more than ever before." CBSSports.com

Afterward, Hornets coach Monty Williams stood in the hallway outside the visiting locker room and spoke about how he saw fear in the eyes of his players. He wasn't talking about Paul, who is never afraid, but nonetheless came out on the short end of his matchup with Knicks backup Toney Douglas. For those who have lost track of where all the stars are playing these days, Douglas is not one of them. Yet he dropped 24 points on 10-of-13 shooting on Paul, who was 2 for 7 for four points -- his second successive single-digit scoring game and third in five games. "I saw fear in some of the guys on our team tonight," Williams said." ... I'm not going to tolerate guys not playing with passion and guys playing afraid." CBSSports.com
