Gerald Green is hoping to re-sign with the Suns this offseason.
"I do want to come back," he said. "I think they do want me back, too ... I just talked to Lon (Babby, president of basketball operations). It was a good conversation so I'm a little positive about that." Green had some ugly public back-and-forths with the Suns toward the end of the year about playing time, so it wouldn't be a surprise if he heads for greener pastures. Apr 20 - 11:14 AM

Date:

Gerald Green led the Suns with 23 points in a futile effort on Sunday, knocking down 8-of-16 shots with two 3-pointers in 26 minutes off the bench.

Green obviously wasn't limited by the back spasms that forced him to leave Friday's game, as this marks just the fifth time since Jan. 1 that he's scored 20+ points. He even chipped in four rebounds and two assists tonight -- with Brandon Knight (ankle) out of commission, Green is an intriguing gamble for owners seeking points and 3-pointers.
Apr 12 - 10:00 PM

Gerald Green (back) will play on Sunday vs. the Spurs.

Green was forced to leave Friday's game against the Pelicans due to back spasms, but he will be ready to roll tonight. The Suns will have just 10 players available, so Green could get plenty of minutes off the bench. He will always be a hit-or-miss option, but Green is worth a flier for any owner in need of scoring or 3-pointers.
Apr 12 - 5:55 PM

Gerald Green left Friday's game due to back spasms after 12 minutes of action.

Green scored five points on 2-of-6 shooting with one three and this kills any appeal he had after his 30-point eruption on Wednesday. If he gets the all-clear going forward, he's to be viewed as a 3-point shooting lottery ticket and that's it.
Apr 11 - 2:18 AM

Gerald Green kept it going on Wednesday and hit 10-of-19 shots and five 3-pointers for a season-high 30 points to go along with two rebounds, two assists and a block in 30 minutes.

Green is suddenly on fire, scoring 30, 15 and 24 points in his last three games. The Suns have nothing left to play for after being eliminated from the postseason tonight, and Green should continue to get nice minutes off the bench to wind up the season. Pick him up if you need a scorer.
Apr 9 - 12:37 AM

Gerald Green followed up Saturday's 24-point outburst with 15 points, two 3-pointers and one assist in 22 minutes off the bench on Tuesday.

The explosive swingman's role is tenuous at best, as he played 22 minutes and nine minutes in his past two games. His line tonight was also the definition of empty scoring -- he shot just 6-of-16 from the field and contributed zero rebounds or defensive stats. Look elsewhere for waiver-wire value.
Apr 7 - 10:07 PM

Gerald Green scored 24 points on 10-of-17 from the field in 22 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday with two rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers.

He had a 42.3 usage rate tonight to give the Suns instant offense. Green had a 67.6 effective field goal percentage, so that's how a guy scores 24 points in 22 minutes -- many shots were contested, too. He'll be at risk to lose minutes, so we're still a little gun-shy in grabbing him until he has a couple good games in a row.
Apr 5 - 2:40 AM

Gerald Green scored 13 points in 19 minutes against the Blazers on Monday with two rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer.

He was a DNP-CD on Sunday, but Green was very busy tonight with 12 shots from the field and two turnovers. With the Suns likely to prepare for the 2015-16 season, they may opt to go with their young guys over Green. Keep him on the wire in most leagues.
Mar 31 - 1:42 AM

Gerald Green scored 12 points in 13 minutes against the Blazers on Friday with five rebounds and two 3-pointers.

Coach Jeff Hornacek said he gave Green some extra run because he needed some shooting in the lineup, but Green looked gassed tonight. He probably didn't help himself much for playing time and Brandon Knight (ankle) should be back soon, so leave him on the wire.
Mar 28 - 2:24 AM

Gerald Green returned to the Suns' rotation on Sunday, scoring five points with no other stats to his credit in six minutes of action.

He was coming off two straight DNP-CDs and he's failed to gain any traction despite Brandon Knight's absence with an ankle injury. Leave him on the waiver wire.
Mar 15 - 11:52 PM

Gerald Green was a DNP-CD on Wednesday.

The Suns have been dropping hints all week that Green was going to lose playing time, so this isn't a surprise. He might get playing time at some point, but he's not worth owning in almost any league right now.
Mar 12 - 1:30 AM

Gerald Green played just 18 minutes against the Warriors on Monday with two points, two boards and two turnovers.

He's fallen on the depth chart. In fact, the Suns started Marcus Morris and moved P.J. Tucker to shooting guard. It's hard to believe that Green is basically the last true shooting guard standing for the Suns, but he still can't fill in to start a half. It would appear Marcus Morris is the better pickup, but definitely keep an eye on Green.
Mar 10 - 12:56 AM

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.
