Gerald Green will start Wednesday's game in place of Goran Dragic (ankle).
Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said that he'll use his typical starting lineup for Wednesday's season finale, minus Dragic, though his youngest players will enter the game "pretty early." Green revitalized his career in Phoenix, averaging 15.8 points and 2.5 threes per game, and he'll look to build on his success during the final year of his contract in 2014-15. Apr 15 - 4:27 PM

Date:

Gerald Green moved back into the starting lineup against the Spurs in Friday, scoring 27 points with three boards, three assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers.

Goran Dragic sat out tonight due to an ankle injury, but Green has been rolling even before this gem. He's been in NBA Jam on-fire mode from deep in his last four games with at least four triples in each game in that span. Green averaged 26.0 points per game in that span and he'll be a must-start player on Saturday vs. the Mavericks.
Apr 12 - 1:33 AM

Gerald Green's illness from Tuesday was a non-issue during Wednesday 94-88 win over the Pelicans, scoring 21 points with two boards, one assist and four 3-pointers on 8-of-14 from the field.

Well, so much for the return of Eric Bledsoe hurting Green. In his last five, he's been on a scoring binge with averages of 22.8 points, 3.4 rebounds, 0.6 blocks and 3.6 triples. What's more, he has a tidy effective field goal percentage of 65.3 percent in that span. After shooting just 36.6 percent from the field last year with the Pacers, Green might be the favorite for Most Improved Player.
Apr 9 - 11:52 PM

Gerald Green had flu-like symptoms on Tuesday and has recovered to play for Wednesday's game vs. the Pelicans.

"He didn’t talk yesterday so we knew he was feeling sick," coach Jeff Hornacek said. "He was talking to so that’s a good sign for him." Green has been electric all season and his move to the second unit hasn't hurt his stats too badly. He sounds like he'll be ready to go for tonight's game and a Suns' win tonight would go a long way for their playoff chances.

Apr 9 - 7:36 PM

Gerald Green scored 32 points on 12-of-20 shooting (including four threes) with five rebounds and a block in Friday's road win over the Blazers.

Green logged 29 minutes as the Suns rode him while he was hot, and this is the obvious reason that owners have held on -- the good will outweigh the bad over the long-run somewhere in the mid-to-late round range. Eric Bledsoe added 30 points, seven rebounds, two steals and two blocks in the win.
Apr 5 - 1:30 AM

Gerald Green bounced back with 22 points, three 3-pointers, four rebounds and two assists in 32 minutes off the bench vs. L.A. on Sunday.

Green scored six points in 17 minutes on Friday, but he got a green light to shoot with Phoenix clawing their way back from a big deficit on Sunday. Unfortunately, he wasn't very efficient (8-of-19 field goals) and his lack of supporting stats makes him hard to trust with Eric Bledsoe healthy and playing solid minutes.
Mar 31 - 12:27 AM

Gerald Green played just 18 minutes vs. the Hawks on Monday, scoring 13 points with one assist and one 3-pointer.

He shot 4-of-6 from the field and was still able to turn in a nice effort in limited playing time. The 18 minutes played were his fewest since the return of Bledsoe and also since Dec. 18. Coach Jeff Hornacek does play the matchups a little, but tonight's game is another case to support the idea of Green putting up solid value in standard leagues regardless of his role.
Mar 24 - 11:00 PM

Gerald Green scored 14 points in 26 minutes off the bench vs. Minnesota, making two 3-pointers and all six of his free throw attempts.

The Suns' bench ranks fifth in the NBA with 38.2 points per game, due primarily to the Morris brothers and Green's instant offense. His playing time and production have dropped precipitously since Eric Bledsoe returned and reclaimed the starting SG job, making Green little more than a points and 3-pointers specialist.
Mar 23 - 6:30 PM

Gerald Green scored 12 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 4-of-12 shots (including a three) with four rebounds and one steal in 22 minutes.

The new reality is here and owners aren't going to like it, but it is what it is with Eric Bledsoe back to full speed. Riding the waves owners were able to get serviceable value out of Green, but the days of early-to-mid round value are over.
Mar 22 - 2:46 AM

Gerald Green was hot to start the fourth quarter to help the Suns pull away during Wednesday's 109-93 win, finishing with 14 points, two boards, one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

He hit three 3-pointers in the first four minutes of the final frame to get this game into garbage time. Green's move to the bench hasn't been too costly on his stat lines, averaging 14.2 points, 2.2 boards, 1.0 steals and 2.4 triples in his five games with Eric Bledsoe back. He's still worth owning in standard leagues.
Mar 20 - 2:12 AM

Gerald Green made six of his 11 shots from the field against the Nets on Monday for 17 points with two steals and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

He started the second half in place of Miles Plumlee as the Suns really needed some scoring punch off the bench. This doesn't seem like it will stick because the Suns just can't start Channing Frye at center in most cases, so Green will continue to come off the bench. Still, Green's role as a scorer in the teens with multiple triples per game makes him a player worth holding in standard formats.
Mar 17 - 10:01 PM

Gerald Green buried five 3-pointers against the Raptors on Sunday, finishing with 28 points, five boards, two assists and three turnovers in 27 minutes.

He was cold on Friday night and it kept him down to just 21 minutes, but that wasn't the case today. He made his first five shots in the first quarter for 13 points in that frame and was able to carry that momentum through the game. Green's production is going to take a dip with Eric Bledsoe back, but his 3-point production makes him worth owning in standard leagues.
Mar 16 - 5:37 PM

Gerald Green played just 21 minutes against the Celtics on Friday, making just 2-of-9 from the field for four points with two boards.

He just didn't have it tonight and that might have been a bigger factor in his minutes going down. Coach Jeff Hornacek said he is going to use a three-guard rotation, so the minutes of Green shouldn’t see a huge dip. His usage rate is likely going to fall off and the stats so far this season would support that claim. During this season, Green’s usage rate has been 24.7 percent without Eric Bledsoe on the floor vs. 19.9 percent with him. He still should take enough triples in what projects to be minutes in the high 20s.
Mar 15 - 12:11 AM

Gerald Green will come off the bench behind Eric Bledsoe Friday.

The reeling Suns have lost seven of their last 10 games, sinking to the No. 9 spot in the Western Conference. The culprit has largely been atrocious first-quarter defense, something Bledsoe can help with right away as perhaps the team's best on-ball defender. Given that his knee is feeling good and he's looking explosive, the Suns won't hesitate to put more on his shoulders. Green's minutes and role are sinking like a stone as he's now merely a scorer for the second unit. Because the Suns may only use a three-guard rotation, owners should think 24-28 minutes for Green.
Mar 14 - 11:29 AM

Gerald Green was quiet in Eric Bledsoe's return on Wednesday against the Cavs, scoring eight points on 4-of-14 shooting with two rebounds, two steals and one block in 31 minutes.

Green missed all six of his threes and fouled out in 31 minutes of action, but this is a pretty good indicator of what his workload will look like, defensive stats aside. He's not going to go away entirely but he'll probably see a couple of rounds fall off of his value.
