According to ESPN Boston, Gerald Green has secured his roster spot on the Celtics.
He's only on a minimum deal, but he's looked solid in the preseason and coach Brad Stevens seems to like him. This means that the Celtics basically have three young players vying for the two final spots in James Young, R.J. Hunter and Demetrius Jackson. None of these guys are fantasy targets.

Gerald Green (hip) had 13 points, two rebounds, a steal and a block on 5-of-12 shooting over 20 minutes in a start for the Celtics as Boston beat Charlotte 104-86 on Saturday.

Green needed to get some run in order to knock off the rust, but 13 points and 12 shots shows he's still a little rusty. When the Celtics are at full strength, don't expect Green to get this kind of opportunity. Boston rested its entire starting lineup sans Jae Crowder for this one.

Gerald Green (hip) is expected to start vs. the Hornets on Saturday.

Green should get some run during the first three quarters "to shake some of that rust off," according to Brad Stevens. We'll let you know how he looks after the game, but the high-flying guard should not have any kind of fantasy value this season.
Oct 8 - 2:26 PM

Gerald Green (hip) said he's 99 percent healthy following his full practice on Friday.

He said he's going to play on Saturday against the Hornets. Green is losing some ground to Terry Rozier and may not be in the rotation at all during the regular season.
Oct 7 - 2:57 PM

Gerald Green (hip) will not play in Tuesday's preseason game against the 76ers.

With Green on the sidelines Tuesday night, look for guys like Terry Rozier, Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown to pickup his minutes. Green isn't guaranteed a spot on the roster, so this injury could really hurt his chances of making the team. He's not worth drafting anywhere.
Oct 4 - 6:02 PM

Gerald Green (hip) will be limited again at practice on Monday.

He's not guaranteed a roster spot, so hopefully he gets back to full strength soon. Green has an outside shot to take some of Evan Turner's leftover minutes, but right now we expect those to go to Terry Rozier, Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown.
Oct 3 - 12:15 PM

Gerald Green (hip pointer) did not scrimmage on Friday.

He is getting better and should be ready for action next week. The Celtics have talked Green's shooting helping out their second unit, but he'll have to earn minutes.
Sep 30 - 11:54 PM

Gerald Green said that his hip flexor injury has improved.

"It’s feeling better," Green said. "Having a second day off of practice and today, just doing a lot of treatment right after practice and coming back this evening and doing treatment, so kind of just almost like precautionary thing, making sure it doesn’t get worse." He's expected to return to practice early next week, which is good because he's fighting to keep his roster spot in Boston. Green is not a fantasy target.
Sep 30 - 11:18 AM

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.
Jul 28 - 9:47 AM

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.
