Gerald Green scored 16 points off the bench against the Hornets during a 111-106 win on Wednesday, adding five rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers.
He picked up a ton of minutes at the forward spots with Markieff Morris being ejected. Green is the only player in the NBA to average at least 11 shots per game with less than 25 minutes per game, so he might actually hold some value in standard leagues. Dec 18 - 12:03 AM

Date:

Gerald Green will come off the bench against the Hornets on Wednesday.

He launched 15 triples in his last start on Monday and will move back to a bench role with Goran Dragic back. Green's minutes are going to be inconsistent, so he's not a must-own player in standard leagues.
Dec 17 - 6:18 PM

Gerald Green launched 15 attempts from beyond the arc on Monday against the Bucks, making just two of them on his way to 12 points, eight rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block in 40 minutes.

He was not bashful tonight and a lot of shots from Green is nothing new. Goran Dragic could miss another game or two, so Green should have some decent short-term value. Additionally, no player has taken more treys in a game this season than Gerald did tonight.
Dec 16 - 1:20 AM

Gerald Green started in place of Goran Dragic (back) during Sunday's loss to the Thunder, scoring 15 points with seven boards, one assist and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

He was the best player on the floor for the Suns, but still shot just 5-of-13 overall. It is unclear how much time Dragic will have to miss, but Green should be picked up in most leagues if he is available.
Dec 14 - 9:58 PM

Gerald Green will enter the starting lineup on Sunday with Goran Dragic (back) sidelined.

Green usually performs when given the minutes, so he'll make for a quality play in daily leagues with Dragic sidelined. Eric Bledsoe will also see his value go up as he'll be tasked with running the Suns' offense, and Isaiah Thomas will benefit as well, as he’s bound for more minutes.
Dec 14 - 6:20 PM

Gerald Green hit just 1-of-7 shots (1-of-6 3PTs) for three points, one rebound, one assist and one block in 21 minutes off the bench on Friday.

This had nothing to do with the return of Isaiah Thomas -- Green was just bad. He's been worth owning in standard leagues and one game shouldn't change that, but he could become more of a borderline play as loses a handful of touches. In any event, he's going to be a boom or bust play on most nights.
Dec 13 - 3:17 AM

Gerald Green dropped 19 points in 22 minutes on Tuesday, and finished with two rebounds, two assists, one steal and five 3-pointers.

Green is one of the most electrifying players in the NBA when he is hot, and Tuesday was one of those nights. He shot 5-of-7 from 3-point range and displayed his athleticism on several occasions. While he is inconsistent, he should be owned in all formats for his ridiculous upside. The impending return of Isaiah Thomas (ankle) will dampen his value a little, but not enough to scare owners away.
Dec 10 - 12:23 AM

Gerald Green scored 15 points off the bench on Monday, hitting 5-of-11 shots (including two threes) with two rebounds, three assists and one steal in 32 minutes.

Green won't usually get this much run when Isaiah Thomas (ankle) returns, but his season-long body of work is in the top 90-100 range and that means he should be owned in all standard formats.
Dec 9 - 2:18 AM

Gerald Green scored 16 points against the Rockets on Saturday with five rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes.

He played a little more in the fourth quarter as the Suns were attempting to make a comeback. Green hasn't seen his minutes increase too much since Isaiah Thomas (ankle) went down, averaging just 23.2 minutes per game over his last five with averages of 13.8 points, 2.2 boards, 1.2 steals and 2.4 triples. He's a borderline player to own, but the highlight-reel plays make him a favorite to watch.
Dec 7 - 12:08 AM

Gerald Green scored 24 points against the Nuggets during a 120-112 win on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, two assists and six 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

When he's on, he's on. Green has been very busy in the fourth quarter when he plays and he's racked up a whopping 13 triples over his last three games. Isaiah Thomas (ankle) did not play tonight and it's pretty clear Green will see a massive bump in production when Thomas, Eric Bledsoe or Goran Dragic need to miss game action. He is still going to be inconsistent, but feel free to give him a look until IT3 is back.
Nov 27 - 3:19 AM

Gerald Green played 30 minutes against the Raptors on Monday with 13 points, three rebounds, one assist, two 3-pointers and five turnovers.

He played down the stretch at small forward as the Suns looked to make a comeback. Green's minutes have been all over the place and he only saw 11 minutes of playing time back on Friday. The ups and downs are going to be very annoying to his fantasy owners, so he's not a must-own player.
Nov 24 - 11:47 PM

Gerald Green caught fire against the Pacers on Saturday with 23 points, three rebounds, two assists and five 3-pointers on 8-of-15 from the field in 22 minutes.

He had the worst year of his career in Indiana in 2012-13 and the Pacers basically just threw him in for their deal to acquire Luis Scola last season, but he showed them a thing or two tonight. Green is still going to have his minutes in check, but nights like these make him fun to own. On the other hand, he'll have his 5-point nights quite often too.
Nov 22 - 10:54 PM

Gerald Green hit 6-of-13 shots and zero 3-pointers for 12 points, three rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block off the bench on Wednesday.

After getting eight minutes and failing to score last Friday, Green played 28 minutes and blew up for 26 points and four 3-pointers on Saturday. He backed that up with seven points in 20 minutes on Monday, and then tonight's 12-point game in 22 minutes. The way things are going for Green, he's due for a monster game, just as his frustrated new owners are ready to pull the plug.
Nov 20 - 1:17 AM

Gerald Green was able to score 26 points in Saturday's game, but was ejected in the fourth quarter after receiving his second technical foul.

He was on fire and was able to add three boards, two assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers to his name in 29 minutes. After failing to hit any of his shots on Friday, this was a welcome surprise for owners who gambled on him Saturday. Green will continue to be a boom-or-bust option going forward as he will struggle to find consistent minutes unless an injury strikes the Suns.
Nov 16 - 1:04 AM

Gerald Green fell off a cliff in Friday's loss, missing all six of his shot attempts and finishing with just one rebound in eight minutes.

Green is going to be a roller coaster ride and even those close to the team are resigned to the fact you have to take the good with the bad. He profiles as a late-round value if you make him a long play, but he's not likely to be a must-own player unless there is an injury in front of him.
