Jeff Green said that the Magic plan to shut him down for the remainder of the season.
"It was the team’s decision to shut me down," Green said. Orlando has him listed as out with a sore lower back, and coach Frank Vogel suggested that Green's status is "game-to-game," but that rings false in light of Green's comments. Aaron Gordon and Mario Hezonja stand to gain the most with Green out. Apr 5 - 7:27 PM

Jeff Green (back) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Cavs.

Tuesday will mark his seventh straight game on the sidelines, and with just four games left on the schedule after that, there's a chance he might just be shut down by Orlando. Mario Hezonja will continue to pick up some extra minutes in Green's absence, but he's not doing enough to warrant a roster spot in most leagues.
Apr 3 - 2:55 PM

Jeff Green (back spasms) will not play Friday vs. the Celtics or Saturday vs. the Nets.

Green has already missed four straight games due to the back issue. Mario Hezonja has logged additional minutes with Green sidelined, but Mario has been anything but super. Over Orlando's last four games, Hezonja is averaging just 5.3 points (while shooting 24.2 percent from the floor and 21.4 percent from 3-point territory) in 23.0 minutes per contest.

Jeff Green (back spasms) is listed as "out" for Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder.

This would be the fourth straight game Green has missed. Mario Hezonja has seen playing time increase with Green sidelined, but has been ineffective. Hezonja is averaging 5.7 points (on just 21.4 percent shooting) and 4.3 rebounds in 24.5 minutes per game over Orlando's last three contests.

Jeff Green (back spasms) will not play on Monday vs. the Raptors.

He's not even making the trip and this will be his third straight game on the shelf. With the Magic playing for lottery balls, it wouldn't be a surprise if the veteran missed more time. Mario Hezonja is getting a nice bump in minutes in Green's absence, but he's only worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues for now.

Jeff Green (back spasms) will not play Friday vs. the Pistons.

This is the second straight game Green has missed due to low back pain. Mario Hezonja is expected to soak up the majority of minutes left behind by Green. Hezonja played 23 minutes on Wednesday, scoring eight points and grabbing seven rebounds.
Mar 24 - 5:24 PM

Coach Frank Vogel said that Jeff Green (back spasms) will be a game-time decision on Friday night vs. Detroit.

Green did not play on Wednesday due to the back issue. With Green sidelined, Mario Hezonja logged 23 minutes, finishing with eight points and seven rebounds. Mario would likely see 20-plus minutes again on Friday if Green is unable to play.
Mar 24 - 11:23 AM

Coach Frank Vogel said that Jeff Green (back spasms) has been ruled out of Wednesday night's game vs. the Hornets.

This will be just the third game Green has missed all season. However, he has apparently played through back spasms intermittently. Green had been averaging 17.5 minutes per game off the Magic's bench in March. Mario Hezonja will likely soak up the majority of the extra minutes available on Wednesday.
Mar 22 - 11:14 AM

Jeff Green made 1-of-9 from the field for two points with eight rebounds, one assist and one turnover against the Suns on Friday.

This is totally unacceptable on St. Patrick's Day. Anyway, Green just doesn't have fantasy value when the Magic are healthy up front. He doesn't even have much when players are out.
Mar 18 - 1:55 AM

Jeff Green played 18 minutes off the bench against the Blazers on Thursday with eight points, four rebounds, four assists, one steal and no turnovers.

He should be sticking in the second unit with the Magic wanting to get a look at Terrence Ross and Aaron Gordon together. Green is not expected to have much fantasy value while Orlando is healthy at the forward spots.
Feb 23 - 9:36 PM

Jeff Green will come off the bench against the Blazers on Thursday.

The Magic did not unload Jeff Green's deal and were surprisingly quiet today. Green figures to lose playing time going forward with the Magic wanting to get a look at their players under contract for 2017-18.
Feb 23 - 5:25 PM

The Pistons and Magic have discussed a trade that would send Jeff Green and D.J. Augustin to Detroit for Reggie Jackson, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

The Magic signed Green to a one-year, $15 million deal, so that expiring contract could help the Magic make a move. It is interesting to see they have talked about a Jackson deal to pick up a big contract despite a terrible season. Last year, we saw the Magic and Pistons pull the reverse on this with the Magic trading away Tobias Harris for the expiring deals of Brandon Jennings and Ersan Ilyasova -- Tobias has been good, though. Anyway, Jeff Green being dealt would open up minutes for Aaron Gordon and Mario Hezonja.

Jeff Green moved into Orlando's starting unit on Wednesday and had 11 points, three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 35 minutes.

Green's start may be temporary, however, if the Magic eventually opt for a lineup that includes Terrence Ross alongside C.J. Watson (or another PG), Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon and Nik Vucevic. Even if the veteran Green does continue to start, he's been far too unreliable to own in standard leagues.
Feb 15 - 10:01 PM

Jeff Green will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Spurs.

Orlando's first starting five sans Serge Ibaka will feature C.J. Watson, Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon, Green and Nikola Vucevic. Head coach Frank Vogel said that he's hesitant to give Gordon major minutes at the four-spot due to concerns about the team's perimeter defense, so he'll continue to experiment with the 30-year-old Green at power forward.

Jeff Green (personal) returned to action on Thursday with three points, five rebounds and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes against the 76ers.

If Aaron Gordon (foot) can't go, there's a decent chance Green starts the next time out. Mario Hezonja may have only had a one-time chance to show what he could do and coach Frank Vogel said he likes Green's durability. Still, Green isn't really an add here.
