Gerald Green was fined $25,000 for his shove on Gorgui Dieng on Sunday in Minneapolis, but will not be suspended.
It's somewhat surprising that Green didn't receive a suspension, as he clearly shoved Dieng into the front row of spectators, after Dieng fouled Chris Paul. Green has scored at least 12 points in each of the last three games he's appeared in; but also has a pair of DNP-CDs sprinkled in there as well. Mar 20 - 12:24 PM

Gerald Green was ejected from Sunday's game after shoving Gorgui Dieng into the stands.

Green took offense to Dieng fouling Chris Paul after the whistle, but by aggressively shoving Dieng into the front row he guaranteed his own early exit. It's a letdown for fantasy owners who gambled on Green -- after picking up two straight DNP-CDs, he was hot tonight with 12 points on 5-of-5 shooting, including a pair of 3-pointers. It remains to be seen whether the league will issue further punishment for his actions. Judge for yourself by watching the video linked below.

Gerald Green was a healthy scratch for Houston on Sunday.

Mike D'Antoni spoke recently about the difficulty of playing 10-11 players every night, and Green was the odd-man out tonight with Joe Johnson (seven points, two assists) playing 29 minutes off the bench. His DNP came despite the absence of Eric Gordon (illness), which makes it even worse. He belongs on the wire in all formats.

Gerald Green scored 12 points with three rebounds, one block and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Heat on Wednesday.

The Rockets went with a ton of P.J. Tucker and Luc Mbah a Moute, so Green didn't get a chance to shine against one of his former teams. Maybe Eric Gordon (back) misses more time, but most fantasy owners should be targeting trade-deadline beneficiaries on the wire instead.
Feb 7 - 11:13 PM

Gerald Green saw his minutes take a big hit on Tuesday, but still managed to hit 6-of-8 shots and four 3-pointers for 16 points and two rebounds in 18 minutes.

He had played at least 30 minutes in three straight games with Eric Gordon out with a back injury, but Gordon was back tonight. It's almost time to send Green packing, as he can't continue to play as well as he did tonight in such limited run. However, he might still have a few drops left in the tank, as Ryan Anderson (ankle) got hurt tonight and Trevor Ariza is out with a hamstring injury.
Feb 7 - 12:10 AM

Gerald Green netted 17 points on 6-of-15 shooting Saturday, to go with four 3-pointers, three rebounds, one steal, three blocks and one turnover in 30 minutes off the bench.

Green amassed all three of his swats through the first quarter of action, and he made the most of his extended minutes with both Eric Gordon (back) and Trevor Ariza (hamstring) unavailable. However, Gordon is expected to get back to the court on Tuesday in Brooklyn, so Green will likely see his minutes reduced to the lower-20s. He's someone to consider streaming when the Rockets are less than 100%, but he's not worth owning in most leagues when their backcourt is fully intact.
Feb 3 - 11:25 PM

Gerald Green scored 15 points with five rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Spurs on Thursday.

He basically stepped right into Eric Gordon's role with similar usage and plenty of treys with Green's 11 attempts tonight. He'll probably have a couple more chances to produce with Gordon having chronic back problems and Trevor Ariza expected to miss more time, too. He doesn't have much long-term upside, so you may not want to add him because of so many adds right now.
Feb 2 - 12:40 AM

Gerald Green returned to the Rockets' rotation on Sunday with eight points on 2-of-6 shooting, two 3-pointers, two rebounds and one steal in 18 minutes.

Trevor Ariza exited after one minute tonight due to a left hamstring injury, which is why Green resurfaced in the rotation. He was hit-or-miss in an expanded role when James Harden was injured, and is hard to trust in any format even if Ariza misses games.
Jan 28 - 7:43 PM

Gerald Green picked up his second straight DNP-CD on Wednesday and coach Mike D'Antoni said that likely won't change for the time being.

"I can’t upset five guys to appease one," D’Antoni said. "I’d rather have one guy kind of out of it and four happy. I’ve got to keep a core that knows about their minutes. Now, whenever I can, I’ll play him. I won’t hesitate to play him. If somebody’s hurt or sick, he’ll play. Or if I can find time, I will." He was a blast to own while James Harden was out, but fantasy owners should now be looking to move on.
Jan 25 - 10:28 AM

Gerald Green was eligible to play on Monday after serving his two-game suspension, but never got off the bench.

Green kind of killed it when James Harden was hurt, but with Trevor Ariza, Harden and Eric Gordon all in action, he may have trouble finding minutes going forward. If you want to drop him for a hot free agent (Kelly Oubre?), feel free to do so. Oubre's not doing much tonight for the Wizards, but has been hot and Otto Porter left with an injury on Monday.
Jan 22 - 10:34 PM

Gerald Green has served his 2-game suspension and will be available for Monday's game vs. the Heat.

Now that James Harden is healthy, Green is going to have a limited role off the Houston bench. His window for reliable fantasy value has likely closed, but he could still be a 3-point specialist for deep-league owners.
Jan 22 - 11:40 AM

Gerald Green will be suspended for two games as a result of Monday's locker room incident.

Both Green and Trevor Ariza will be hit with a two-game suspension, whereas Chris Paul and James Harden are in the clear. Green had been ballin' since joining the Rockets with Harden on the sidelines, but his days of relevancy in fantasy hoops could be numbered with Harden expected to make it back to the court on Thursday. Green isn't necessarily worth hanging onto through the suspension.
Jan 17 - 6:48 PM

Gerald Green joined Trevor Ariza and James Harden in a post-game altercation Monday, as the trio tried to force their way into the locker room of the Clippers looking to confront Austin Rivers.

During the game, Green finished with 11 points, two rebounds, two assists and two steals while blocking a shot. He went 4-of-14 from the field while ending up 1-of-8 from behind the 3-point line. It's uncertain if he will face any sort of a fine or disciplinary action from the league for his part in the donnybrook, but we'll keep an eye on it and pass any breaking news along.
Jan 16 - 1:46 AM

Gerald Green finished with 12 points over 34 minutes in Friday's 112-95 road victory against the Suns.

Green's point total wasn't bad, but he was just 3-of-14 from the field, including 1-of-9 from behind the 3-point line. He helped himself with a 5-of-5 night at the free-throw stripe. He'll continue to have some fantasy appeal with added minutes until James Harden (hamstring) is healthy enough to make his way back.
Jan 13 - 2:03 AM

Gerald Green came off the bench for 12 points, six rebounds, four assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes vs. Portland on Wednesday.

Green came in averaging 17.3 points, 3.0 rebounds, 0.7 steals and a whopping 4.1 triples per game for Houston, while hitting 51.3% FGs and 90.9% FTs. Even so, he said he's still getting up to speed. "My conditioning is picking up pretty quick," he said. "I give myself another week or two, I think I should be right there." Tonight's supporting stats were a nice twist, and he's a staple of fantasy lineups at least until James Harden is healthy -- and maybe beyond.
