Pending free agent Gerald Green said that he hopes to re-sign with Boston this summer.
Green stated that his main goal is to return to Boston and help them win a championship. "I've felt at home in a number of places, but definitely here, with the city and the fans," said Green. The Celtics have over $30 million in cap space this summer, so their priority will be landing far bigger fish, such as Gordon Hayward. They also have to make room for some of the players they have been stashing overseas. There may not be a roster spot available for Green. May 26 - 12:34 PM

Gerald Green shifted to the Celtics' bench on Sunday, posting five points, two rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in seven minutes.

Green started Game 2 but came off the bench to begin the third quarter, telegraphing his demotion tonight. Brad Stevens continues to search for winning combinations in this series and he found some tonight, as the Celts pulled off an improbable 111-108 road win without Isaiah Thomas. Green's lack of activity in the victory doesn't bode well for Game 4.
May 21 - 11:46 PM

Gerald Green will come off the Celtics bench for Game 3 on Sunday.

Green didn't start the second half during Friday's blowout loss, so this isn't a big surprise. Amir Johnson will earn the start tonight and it's unclear how many minutes Green will see with the second unit, but he's a dubious option in DFS leagues.
May 21 - 7:16 PM

Gerald Green scored six points in a start against the Cavs on Friday, adding two 3-pointers and one turnover in 14 minutes.

He actually played well early with a couple big threes in the first quarter. Green was probably the best player in the first quarter before things got out of hand, but coach Brad Stevens still didn't start Green in the second half. There will probably be a change in Game 3.
May 19 - 10:49 PM

The Celtics will start Gerald Green in place of Amir Johnson for Game 2 against the Cavs on Friday.

It makes a lot of sense to pull Johnson from the starting lineup. That lineup didn't fare well during the season and it was roasted in Game 1. It is somewhat interesting that Green is starting over someone like Jaylen Brown. Green likely won't play too much beyond his first stints from each half, assuming he can start the second half. Expect Brown to get more minutes than Green.
May 19 - 6:38 PM

Gerald Green scored eight points in garbage time during Sunday's Game 4 loss, making two 3-pointers with two assists and one steal in 10 minutes.

Green took all of his shots from downtown in his familiar bench role tonight, which came on the heels of a 26-minute stint during Boston's Game 3 defeat. Everything's on the table for coach Brad Stevens, following two blowout losses, but Green has averaged just 10.8 minutes through four games this series.
May 7 - 9:14 PM

Gerald Green played 26 minutes in the starting lineup against the Wizards in Game 3 on Thursday, scoring eight points with three rebounds and one 3-pointer.

He actually got some minutes at the point guard spot because of garbage time, and also because Marcus Smart was awful today. The Wizards destroyed the Celtics early in this game, so there's a chance Green doesn't get another chance to start on Sunday.
May 4 - 10:48 PM

Gerald Green is starting over Amir Johnson for Game 3 against the Wizards on Thursday.

Green was a DNP-CD in Game 2 and only played seven minutes in Game 1. His addition to the starting lineup against the Bulls in Game 3 was a risky move and certainly unexpected, but this move isn't surprising this time around. Besides Johnson, guys like Terry Rozier could lose some playing time today.
May 4 - 6:35 PM

Gerald Green was a DNP-CD in Game 2 vs. the Wizards on Tuesday.

We saw this coming after he played seven minutes in Game 1. The Celtics will continue to roll with Marcus Smart and Terry Rozier as their primary guards off the bench.
May 2 - 11:49 PM

Gerald Green will come off the bench in Game 2 vs. the Wizards on Tuesday.

The writing was on the wall when Green only played seven minutes in Game 1. He's not a lock to see action tonight.
May 2 - 7:48 PM

Gerald Green did a whole lot of nothing through seven minutes of action as a starter on Sunday, committing one turnover without registering any other statistics.

Green got yanked after just two minutes of play to begin the game and was replaced in the starting five by Marcus Smart at the half. Green matched up well with the Bulls’ during the Celtics’ first-round series, but he probably won’t be playing much during Round 2.
Apr 30 - 3:46 PM

Gerald Green will remain in the starting lineup for Game 1 vs. the Wizards on Sunday.

The Celtics will start Isaiah Thomas, Avery Bradley, Green, Jae Crowder and Al Horford. It's going to be difficult for Boston to hide both Thomas and Green on the defensive end, so don't be surprised if coach Brad Stevens makes a quick adjustment if Green doesn't have the hot hand early. The streaky shooter averaged 11.0 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.3 triples in 20.5 minutes in his previous four starts in Round 1, so he's a punt option in DFS at his very affordable price. We should still see quite a bit of Marcus Smart in this series.
Apr 30 - 11:13 AM

Gerald Green scored 16 points with two rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Bulls on Friday.

The move to start Green was a risky one, but it paid off in spades. Coach Brad Stevens said Green was "great" in the role and he said it also allowed him to maximize Jae Crowder as a four man and Horford as a true five. Green could get minutes again vs. the Wizards. By the way, he did only score three points in the fourth, so this scoring output wasn't about garbage time.
Apr 28 - 11:24 PM

Coach Brad Stevens said he intends to start Gerald Green in Game 6 on Friday.

He played just 12 minutes in Game 5 and 23 minutes in Game 4 during his two starts. Stevens talked up Terry Rozier before the game, and the backup came through with some big plays in 18 minutes. Expect to see a similar distribution in Game 6.
Apr 27 - 6:47 PM

Gerald Green started Game 5 on Wednesday but he played only 11 minutes, finishing with two points on 1-of-3 shooting and one rebound.

Boston's starters came out flat and both Marcus Smart and Terry Rozier provided welcome energy off the bench. The result was Green sitting out the entire second and fourth quarters, to the chagrin of everyone who gambled on him in DFS tonight. He contributes almost nothing beyond scoring, which makes him a risky option even if his role weren't so precarious.
