Gerald Green will miss the next few days due to a hip flexor injury.
It doesn't sound serious and there's no talk of any re-evaluation. Green is going to have a chance to step up with Evan Turner in Portland, but he will really have to play lights out in camp. For now, he's behind guys like Terry Rozier, Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown for minutes on the wing. Sep 28 - 5:59 PM

Isaiah Thomas believes that Gerald Green will be able to help the Celtics' second unit.

"He can shoot the ball, he’s athletic -- something we don’t really have, a knockdown shooter and someone that can create for himself," Thomas said. "I know he’s gonna help us and I know he’s excited." Green isn't a lock to make the 15-man roster, but he will be competing with Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier for some of the minutes that Evan Turner left behind. Fantasy owners should ignore him for now.

Coach Brad Stevens said he's been a big Gerald Green fan because he's been scared of him.

Green is wildly inconsistent, but he can get as hot as anyone at the right time. "I think he brings a spurt-ability to us that we clearly needed from a scoring standpoint," Stevens said. Earlier this month, the Boston Globe reported Green isn't a lock to make the roster. For now, it looks like Terry Rozier is the best bet to pick up some of Evan Turner's minutes.

Gerald Green reportedly isn't a lock to make the 15-man roster in Boston.

The veteran SG signed a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum, and Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe said the Celtics could cut ties with him if he has a subpar training camp. The Celtics are one of the deepest teams in the East and Marcus Smart and Terry Rozier should be ready to take on larger roles in the absence of Evan Turner, so Green won't have much fantasy value this season.
Sep 5 - 10:41 AM

The Celtics have officially signed Gerald Green.

It's a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum, but he's still not a lock to make the 15-man roster. Green didn't have a good season in Miami, averaging 8.9 points, 2.4 boards and 1.2 treys on 39.2 percent shooting from the field. If he makes the final roster, he will have a limited role.

Gerald Green has reportedly agreed to a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum with the Celtics.

Once Green signs, they will have 14 guaranteed contracts on their roster. Green is coming off a disappointing season in Miami where he averaged 8.9 points on 39.2 percent shooting. He will likely have a limited role at best in Boston.
Jul 23 - 9:55 AM

Miami is not expected to re-sign Gerald Green, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

Green's defense improved as the season progressed, but his role diminished due to struggles and inconsistency on the offensive end. After shooting just 32.3 percent from distance and 39.2 percent overall, Green will likely have to re-prove himself with another franchise.
May 30 - 9:29 AM

Gerald Green scored 16 points on 7-of-16 shooting vs. the Hornets on Sunday, adding three boards and two 3-pointers in 23 minutes.

The Heat won by 33 points, so garbage time was obviously a factor. Green averaged 1.3 points in 5.0 minutes in the first six games of the series, so don't expect him to play a lot of minutes in round two of the playoffs.
May 1 - 3:37 PM

Gerald Green caught fire in 17 minutes off the bench on Sunday, scoring 15 points on 7-of-12 shooting with three rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer.

The Heat got revenge for Friday's loss to the Magic, and they're closing the season on a strong run with 15 victories in their past 22 games. Green's role expanded tonight because Justise Winslow (ankle) exited early, so anyone eyeing him should monitor Miami's injury report.
Apr 10 - 8:28 PM

Greald Green will return to the bench for Tuesday's game against the Pistons with Dwyane Wade (neck, back, migraines) back in the starting five.

With Wade active, Green will return to a negligible bench role with the Heat, and he won't be worth deploying in almost any setting.
Apr 5 - 7:16 PM

Gerald Green cooled off vs. the Blazers on Saturday, scoring seven points on 3-of-9 shooting in 26 minutes.

He was unconscious on Friday vs. the Kings with 30 points and five triples, but he couldn't get anything going tonight. He only added three boards, one assist, one steal and one triple, and this performance confirms that most owners in season-long leagues will want to avoid him even though Dwyane Wade is day-to-day with a neck injury.
Apr 3 - 12:55 AM

Gerald Green will draw another start on Saturday vs. the Blazers.

He was awesome on Friday with 30 points, three rebounds, one assist, three steals and five 3-pointers in 33 minutes, but Portland is a much tougher matchup than Sacramento. Dwyane Wade (neck) is day-to-day, so Green is only on the radar in deeper leagues unless he can post another big outing tonight.
Apr 2 - 9:14 PM

Gerald Green scored a season-high 30 points against the Kings during a 112-106 win on Friday, adding three rebounds, one assist, three steals and five 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

He was on fire in the first quarter with 15 points in a start for Dwyane Wade (neck, back). Green is very inconsistent and tonight's matchup against the soft Kings perimeter defense helped him. He hasn't been very good in back-to-back sets, so it's best not to overreact here.
Apr 2 - 1:31 AM

Gerald Green will enter the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Kings, with Dwyane Wade (neck) unavailable.

Green will draw a very favorable matchup against the Kings tonight, so he's someone to consider as a streamer option or punt play in DFS.
Apr 1 - 9:25 PM

Gerald Green scored four points with one rebound, one assist and one turnover in 10 minutes against the Suns on Thursday.

He was actually decent on defense, but he did make just 2-of-7 from the field. Green is not a lock to play most nights.
