Gerald Green racked up 21 points and 12 rebounds off the bench on Wednesday, hitting 7-of-17 shots with five 3-pointers, one assist, one block and zero turnovers in 26 minutes.
All of Green's attempts in the first half were from downtown, but that's nothing new -- he took a whopping 72.3% of his shots from beyond the arc this season, including 17 triples in Houston's regular-season finale. His deft scoring touch helped Houston overcome a brutal 2-of-18 shooting night from James Harden, and they head to Minnesota with a comfortable 2-0 series lead. Apr 19 - 12:14 AM

Gerald Green lit up for 31 points in a losing effort on Wednesday, making 11-of-22 shots with seven 3-pointers, two rebounds and three turnovers in 26 minutes.

The Rockets were playing without Chris Paul, James Harden, Eric Gordon, Clint Capela, Ryan Anderson, Luc Mbah a Moute and Nene tonight. That gave Green all the touches he needed offensively, and he launched a whopping 17 three-pointers tonight -- the only other players with that many attempts this year are Allen Crabbe, Taurean Prince, Wayne Ellington and Harden. Considering this was the regular-season finale for Green, it was fun while it lasted.
Apr 12 - 1:06 AM

Gerald Green hit 5-of-9 shots and four 3-pointers for 16 points, two rebounds, two assists and two steals in 23 minutes of Tuesday's 120-104 win over the Wizards.

Ryan Anderson went down with a sprained ankle and didn't return and Green stayed hot, scoring in double figures for the sixth straight game. He's averaging 16.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 0.8 steals and 3.2 3-pointers over his last five, and with Anderson's injury, should be able to keep it rolling over Houston's last four games.
Apr 3 - 11:10 PM

Gerald Green scored 11 points on 3-of-8 shooting Sunday, to go with eight rebounds, two 3-pointers, one steal, one block and one turnover in 29 minutes off the bench.

Green did bang knees with Patty Mills during the second quarter and walked back to the locker room prior to halftime, but he got back out there during the second half didn’t seem any worse for the wear so he should be fine for Tuesday’s game against the Wizards. However, Chris Paul (hip) is also expected back on Tuesday, so Green’s minutes could dip back to the teens.
Apr 1 - 6:29 PM

Gerald Green hit a corner 3-pointer at the buzzer to beat the Suns 104-103 on Friday, making 5-of-14 from the field for 15 points with four 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

Peak Gerald. He had no other stats beside four fouls, and he was ice cold to start the game to keep his minutes down. After the shot from Green, James Harden gave the crowd a four-finger sign to show love to how Green is missing part of one of his fingers. Eric Gordon could play on Sunday, but Green could still get 30 minutes if Chris Paul is out.
Mar 31 - 12:39 AM

Gerald Green will start against the Suns on Friday night.

The light will be just like his last name. Green should be seeing minutes in the 30s today, and he's already coming off a three-game stretch with 14.3 attempts from the field per game. If you need threes and scoring to stream, you'd have a tough time finding a better option than The Four-Fingered Assassin. He's a great DFS play, too.
Mar 30 - 6:29 PM

Gerald Green finished with 25 points across 32 minutes off the bench in Sunday's home win against the Hawks.

Green had the hot hand, hitting 10-of-15 from the field, including 5-of-10 from behind the 3-point line. He also added seven rebounds, two assists and a steal with just one turnover. He, Joe Johnson and P.J. Tucker will continue to pick up the slack along the wings with Luc Mbah a Moute (knee) on the shelf. However, despite the big game Green is still only worth a look in the very deepest of fantasy formats at the moment.
Mar 25 - 11:20 PM

Gerald Green made 1-of-9 from the field for three points with three rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes against the Pistons on Thursday.

He was cold, but the opportunity was there for him and he even handled the ball a bit. Green will likely have another chance this weekend with the Rockets likely to rest someone, but leave him on the wire until we find out the details.
Mar 22 - 10:49 PM

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.
Mar 18 - 10:07 PM

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.
Feb 26 - 12:06 AM

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.
