Gerald Green scored a season-high 25 points against the Knicks during his start on Friday, adding two rebounds, one steal and four 3-pointers.
He was the go-to scorer at times, but he talked about his defense after the game. "My main goal is defense. All I expect from myself is to put my hard hat on and make every guy I face work," Green said. Right. While that's nice to hear, Green was probably happier about his season high in treys. After a bad start, he's trending up and is worth a look in 14-team leagues. If you need short-term help, you can grab him almost anywhere while Luol Deng (hamstring) is out. Nov 27 - 11:59 PM

Gerald Green will start on Friday night against the Knicks.

He did play 38 minutes on Wednesday, but keep in mind garbage time was a big factor there. Justise Winslow is probably going to get a little more run to guard Carmelo Anthony. Green has a high usage rate this season, so he could be able to put up numbers tonight.

Gerald Green started in place of Luol Deng (hamstring) on Wednesday, scoring 16 points on 6-of-17 shooting in 38 minutes of action.

He made two 3-pointers with five rebounds, one assist, one block and three turnovers in Miami's road loss, and his inefficient shooting didn't help matters. Deng said recently that the Heat are playing it safe to prevent his hamstring injury from lingering, so there's a chance he'll also sit out vs. the Knicks on Friday. Given the temporary nature of his promotion, Green is best suited for DFS play.

Gerald Green is starting in place of Luol Deng (hamstring) on Wednesday against the Pistons.

That will push Dwyane Wade to more of a small forward in the offensive set and Green should likely guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. Green is probably only looking at minutes in the mid-20s and it's a pretty safe bet that we'll see more of Justise Winslow, especially to close halves.
Nov 25 - 6:49 PM

Gerald Green was spotted running with the starting unit during Wednesday morning's shootaround.

Luol Deng (hamstring) is extremely unlikely to play Wednesday vs. the Pistons, and it looks like Erik Spoelstra is contemplating giving Green the start over rookie Justise Winslow. Green can fill it up when given the minutes, but he's been pretty horrible this season with averages of just 7.6 points and 1.1 three-pointers per game. He'll also be competing for touches with Goran Dragic, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh as a starter, so even as a punt play in DFS, he'll be a very risky option.

Gerald Green returned to action on Tuesday vs. the Wolves, scoring two points with four boards and one assist in 12 minutes.

Green was averaging 21.7 minutes per game prior to his suspension, so he is probably going to have to climb out of the doghouse before he will have any fantasy value. Leave him on the wire.

Gerald Green will be available to play on Tuesday vs. the Wolves.

Head coach Erik Spoelstra said that he is planning on playing Green, but his owners may want to keep him on their bench until we see what type of role he will have. Green is only on the radar in deeper formats while Dwyane Wade is healthy.
Nov 17 - 6:01 PM

Gerald Green's conditioning is considered game-ready.

It's unclear what role Green will hold upon returning to the Heat, but the good news is he's not limited now that he's back with the team.
Nov 16 - 1:02 PM

Gerald Green apologized for his two-game suspension, saying he was "ashamed" of his incident.

Green declined to discuss details. "I'm just trying to just get over this situation," Green said. "I can't apologize enough to the residents that lived in my building, my fans who supported me and definitely my family. That was a situation that I'm not proud of. But I'm ready to move forward. I'm ready to continue with the team's goals. I'm ready to be with my brothers." No charges have been filed.

Gerald Green returned to practice on Saturday.

Green has served his two-game suspension and will be available to play on Tuesday vs. the Wolves, but it is unclear if he will resume his role off the bench. Owners in most leagues can simply use a wait-and-see approach here. Green has averages of 10.3 points and 2.3 3-pointers through three games this season.

Gerald Green allegedly punched a person in the eye during his rampage at a Miami condo complex before being restrained and sent to a local hospital, according to TMZ.

According to the police report, Green was at the front desk of his condo and had bloody hands. He allegedly asked the front-desk clerk to call an ambulance just before he collapsed in the valet area. Green was suspended for two games.

Pat Riley said that the Heat will "need" Gerald Green this season.

"He’s really a great kid and a great athlete," said Riley of Green. "He can really shoot the ball. He’s explosive. We’re gonna need him, and I believe that he’s gonna show that to us." Riley would not touch on Green's recent hospital stay beyond calling the matter a "personal" issue, and it doesn't sound like we'll be getting any clarity on exactly what went down any time soon. Green will finish serving his two-game suspension after Thursday's matchup with the Jazz, so he'll be ready to resume his sixth man role with the club on Tuesday vs. Minnesota.

Gerald Green has been suspended for two games according to Adrian Wojnarowksi of Yahoo Sports.

Green will miss Tuesday's game against the Lakers and Thursday's vs. the Jazz, meaning he will be eligible to return on Nov. 17 vs. the Wolves. Green was suspended for his part in a law enforcement intervention at his condo on Nov. 4, but he was not arrested or charged with a crime. Tyler Johnson and Justise Winslow will benefit in his absence.
Nov 10 - 6:25 PM

Gerald Green is listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Lakers.

Green should be able to return to the Heat soon and coach Erik Spoelstra has talked to him daily, but he can be left on the waiver wire in all leagues until we get a firm update.
Nov 9 - 6:09 PM

Erik Spoelstra confirmed he's been in touch with Gerald Green daily, but declined to provide a further update.

We're going to consider Green as out indefinitely until we get a real update.
