Gerald Green admitted he wants to play, but added he'd do whatever is best for the team.
"We're all fighting for something – to get in the playoffs. So that's all I'm worried about. I want to play but, even if I don't, I just want to win." Green has played less than 16.5 minutes in three of his last four contests. Mar 2 - 10:44 AM

Gerald Green started the second half for the injured Brandon Knight, finishing with four points and one rebound in 14 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday.

He seems to be firmly in the doghouse and has played just 15.5 minutes per game since the break (including the DNP-CD). The Suns appear like they're not going to bring Green back next season and will get a look at their young guys, so he's not worth owning in standard leagues.
Feb 28 - 11:30 PM

Gerald Green played 16 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday with two points, one assist and one steal.

He was the No. 2 guy off the bench and he only made 1-of-4 from the field. Green was more focused on defense tonight, but he still has a long way to go to getting back in the good graces of his coach. If you want to add someone like Kelly Olynyk for Green, go for it.
Feb 27 - 3:28 AM

Gerald Green played 21 minutes against the Nuggets on Wednesday with 15 points, four rebounds, three assists, one block and three 3-pointers.

He was a DNP-CD on Monday because coach Jeff Hornacek called his number and Green had stepped away to go to the bathroom. He really only needs around 25 minutes per game to put up value in standard leagues, so he should be on your radar. However, it's going to be tough to add him until Hornacek rolls with a consistent rotation on the wing behind Brandon Knight and P.J. Tucker.

Gerald Green was a healthy scratch against the Celtics on Monday.

Green was set to come off the bench against his former team on Monday, but ended up not seeing the court during the Suns' loss. While Green had played in all but one game this season, it looks like he's in danger to losing his spot in the Suns' rotation to Archie Goodwin and can be dropped in standard leagues.

Gerald Green will come off the bench against the Celtics on Monday.

He played just 11 minutes on Saturday and there is no word of an injury. Green has played poorly in February, averaging 7.0 points, 1.7 boards, 1.9 assists, 0.4 steals and 0.9 treys on 39.6 percent from the field. He has a greater opportunity now, but he's too risky to start in fantasy leagues right now with the Suns getting a look at Archie Goodwin these days.
Feb 23 - 3:42 PM

Gerald Green played 11 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday with 10 points, one rebound, three assists and two 3-pointers during a 112-107 loss.

He hasn't looked great whatsoever. Green made just 5-of-14 from the field on Friday and he may have found himself in the doghouse. Still, the Suns probably aren't going to play Archie Goodwin this much, but the bad news is that Marcus Morris and P.J. Tucker had most of the run at small forward. In fact, all of Green's minutes only came with the starters tonight, which is a bad sign. Unless it's to add a hot free agent, Green is worth holding.
Feb 21 - 11:21 PM

Gerald Green will remain in the starting lineup for Saturday's game vs. the Bulls.

Coach Jeff Hornacek has decided to bring Brandon Knight off the bench for his debut, but we doubt that this will be a permanent move. Green played 30 minutes in a start on Friday, scoring 12 points with six assists, but he's been too inconsistent to rely upon in standard leagues. The Suns also added Marcus Thornton at the trade deadline, so owners will want to see how the Suns' rotation shapes up in the coming days.
Feb 21 - 6:41 PM

Gerald Green scored 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting (including two threes) with one rebound, six assists and one steal over 30 minutes in a start on Friday.

It's unclear if the Suns will start their two point guards in Eric Bledsoe (12 points, seven boards, six assists) and Brandon Knight (DNP), but they'll surely stagger their minutes and Green will fit in around that. His main competition for minutes will come from newly acquired Marcus Thornton, and his situation has improved since Deadline Day making him worth a very hard look in standard formats.
Feb 21 - 1:33 AM

Gerald Green will start at shooting guard for Friday's game against the Wolves.

With Brandon Knight unavailable for this one, Eric Bledsoe will slide over to the point guard spot, freeing up Green to log heavy minutes at the two-spot. He'll draw a favorable matchup tonight against Minnesota, but his value in general is due for an increase with the departure of Goran Dragic and Isaiah Thomas. If he's still available in your league, grab him, and consider using him as a plug-and-play option in daily leagues. It's worth a mention Green has a 31.0 usage rate while he played next to Bledsoe with Dragic and Thomas off the floor this season.
Feb 20 - 3:53 PM

Gerald Green played just 13 minutes on Friday, scoring two points on 1-of-5 shooting with two rebounds and two assists.

Green is definitely in the dog house and he'll probably get out of it at some point, but he didn't have enough value to survive this kind of situation in 12-team formats. We'll let you know if he heats back up.
Feb 7 - 3:38 AM

Gerald Green played 17 minutes against the Blazers on Thursday with nine points, four rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer.

He had a calf injury keep him down to three minutes on Monday and he also had a DNP-CD on Friday, so his stats do not look good recently. In his last four games, he's averaged just 5.5 points, 3.0 boards, 1.5 assists, 0.3 steals and 0.8 treys on 36.0 percent from the field. He's not a must-own player in standard leagues anymore.
Feb 6 - 1:05 AM

Gerald Green (calf) will play in Thursday's game vs. Portland.

He suffered the injury on Monday which explains why he played just three minutes, but Green's struggles go beyond that. He hasn't scored double digits since Jan. 23 and has steadily been losing minutes in the rotation. Green has plenty of upside and could turn things around soon, but owners should consider leaving him on the bench for now.
Feb 5 - 4:06 PM

Gerald Green played just three minutes on Monday against the Grizzlies.

Clearly something is up and it's either some advanced trade talks that nobody knows about or, more likely, he's just in the doghouse. Green was previously providing serviceable returns as a low-end asset, but this new wrinkle is enough for owners to liberally consider a drop.
Feb 3 - 3:28 AM

Gerald Green played 13 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday with eight points, four rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He was a DNP-CD on Friday and coach Jeff Hornacek said he just tried a rotation without Green. The Suns won that game against the Bulls, so that's probably not a good sign. That said, the four-fingered assassin is worth owning in standard leagues for now.
