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.

Gerald Green scored a playoff career-high 18 points on 7-of-13 shooting with four 3-pointers during Sunday's Game 4 win in Chicago, adding seven rebounds and one turnover in 23 minutes.

The Bulls left Green wide open early in the game and he made them pay dearly, helping Boston roar out to a 20-point lead early in the second quarter. Green said that his goal was simply to bring "energy" to the first unit, but he brought much more than that tonight. He'll likely be a popular DFS option during Wednesday's Game 5 in Boston.
Apr 23 - 9:31 PM

Gerald Green said his job is to bring some energy and pace to the first unit.

"I was just trying to bring energy. I think that was most important," Green said after logging 20 minutes in the starting lineup in Game 3 vs. Chicago. "I feel like my energy was there early on in the game. So that’s what I’m going to try to do [in Sunday's Game 4]: just try to come out with a lot of energy and just try to play up-tempo basketball, try to just bring it on both ends." Green played through a mild ankle tweak and scored eight points with one rebound and two 3-pointers, and he's on the radar as a DFS play in tournaments because of his boom-or-bust appeal.

Gerald Green played 20 minutes in the starting lineup against the Bulls in Game 3 on Friday, scoring eight points with one rebound and two 3-pointers.

He did suffer a mild left ankle tweak in the first half, but he did return and looked fine after getting re-taped. Even if Green is going to start, he's going to be the fourth guard at best in the rotation for total minutes behind Isaiah Thomas, Avery Bradley and Marcus Smart -- Terry Rozier played 23 minutes, as well. Green is only going to be a tournament play in DFS because we've seen him get hot at times.
Apr 21 - 9:57 PM

Gerald Green started the second half on Friday.

His left ankle tweak doesn't look like it'll be an issue for coach Brad Stevens' rotation, which has been very odd and perhaps too deep.
Apr 21 - 8:26 PM

Gerald Green went to the locker room in the second quarter on Friday and he is available to return.

He just went to go get re-taped and came running out from the locker room about 10 minutes later in real time. If he's limited, the Celtics may go with more Marcus Smart because of how the small-ball lineup worked early.
Apr 21 - 7:56 PM

Gerald Green is starting for Amir Johnson in Game 3 on Friday.

Wow. This is basically uncharted waters for the Celtics with the Green, Isaiah Thomas, Avery Bradley, Jae Crowder and Al Horford lineup playing together for just 16 minutes this season -- they had a +1.8 net rating, for what it's worth. Coach Brad Stevens stressed rebounding, but he looks like he'll try to go with a smaller, faster lineup to offset that issue. Green will be a risky DFS play, but the four-fingered assassin has shown he can get hot in a hurry.
Apr 21 - 5:35 PM

Gerald Green scored 18 points on 6-of-15 shooting vs. the Bucks on Wednesday, adding six rebounds, one assist and two triples in 21 minutes.

After a string of DNPs, Green was back in the rotation for the season finale with the Celtics reducing the workloads of their starters. Green is a streaky shooter with boom-or-bust potential when he gets minutes, but he's not a lock to see the floor in the playoffs while the Celtics are healthy.
Apr 12 - 11:15 PM

Gerald Green scored 15 points with one rebound and four 3-pointers against the Suns on Friday.

It was a small revenge game for Green. Avery Bradley (illness) didn't play, so that explains the output after Green didn't play in the previous two games.
Mar 24 - 11:12 PM

Gerald Green (heel) returned to the rotation against the Lakers, going 1-of-5 from the field for two points and four rebounds in 15 minutes.

Green was a DNP-CD in Boston's last game, but he resurfaced tonight with Jaylen Brown starting in place of Avery Bradley (hamstring). Bradley has some mild hamstring soreness but this was simply a rest day, so there's no reason to think Green will play a big role during Monday's game vs. the Clippers.
Mar 5 - 8:15 PM

Gerald Green (heel) was a DNP-CD on Friday vs. the Lakers.

He was available to play, but the Celtics didn't need him in the blowout win. He's only averaging minutes in the low teens anyways and may not be in the rotation moving forward with Jaylen Brown playing so well.
Mar 4 - 2:11 AM

Gerald Green (heel) will play on Friday vs. the Lakers.

He was previously listed as out, but he was able to go through shootaround and the pre-game warmups and is good to go. He's averaging minutes in the low teens, so fantasy owners can ignore this for the most part.
Mar 3 - 9:09 PM

Gerald Green (heel) will go through shootaround but his availability for Friday night's game has yet to be determined.

Green was previously listed as "out" in the game notes, so it appears he is making some modest improvement. Nonetheless, Green will have little fantasy impact, even if he is available.
Mar 3 - 2:08 PM

Gerald Green (heel) is listed as out for Friday's game against the Lakers.

There is only minimal fantasy impact here, as Green has missed four straight games and is averaging under 12 minutes per contest this season.
