Jeff Green scored 27 points with five rebounds, two assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes against the Rockers on Thursday.
He has been a difference maker all season and is fitting in nicely as the main option in the second unit. Although, Green has been marvelous next to LeBron James with his 68.1 TS% in those 100 minutes, which blows away the 52.3 TS% in the 159 minutes without James. Green scored just 20 points combined over his last three games, so this game was more about the matchup and him playing extremely well. He's not really worth owning in standard leagues just yet.

Jeff Green scored 15 points with three rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday.

He's probably going to be looking at more minutes with Tristan Thompson out, and really something has to change with this rotation. Green still hasn't been a great per-minute guy in standard leagues, so there's no reason to add him unless he starts heating up.
Nov 1 - 9:29 PM

Jeff Green scored seven points with two rebounds, one assist and two turnovers in 16 minutes against the Pelicans on Saturday.

As expected, the return of Dwyane Wade (knee) caused Green to lose a lot of playing time. He was very effective with Wade on the shelf and could re-emerge, but his fantasy owners should be looking for greener pastures at the end of their bench. Danny or JaMychal Green?
Oct 28 - 9:41 PM

Jeff Green scored 18 points with six rebounds, three assists, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Nets on Wednesday.

With LeBron James logging minutes at the point, there have been some minutes available at the forward spots. Green has also benefitted from Dwyane Wade not playing tonight, but Wade and Derrick Rose figure to be back soon. Green's upside beyond this weekend may not be there.
Oct 25 - 10:18 PM

Jeff Green played 24 minutes, hit 4-of-6 shots, a 3-pointer and 7-of-8 free throws for a season-high 16 points, two rebounds and two assists off the Cavs bench on Tuesday.

Green hit season highs in almost every scoring category tonight and his 24 minutes off the bench were also a season high. This has fluke written all over it and he should be ignored unless you're in an incredibly deep league.
Oct 24 - 10:18 PM

Jeff Green scored just six points on Tuesday vs. the Celtics.

As expected, Green was deployed as an energy guy off the bench and isn't going to have any consistent fantasy value while LeBron James, Jae Crowder and Kevin Love are healthy. He finished 3-of-8 from the field with one turnover in 14 minutes. Leave him on the wire.
Oct 17 - 11:13 PM

Jeff Green scored 19 points on 8-of-14 shooting during Sunday's exhibition, adding seven boards, one assist, one 3-pointer, one block and two turnovers in 24 minutes.

The Cavs rested their entire starting five and then some on Sunday, so Green had a nice game as the No. 1 option in a spot-start. However, he'll rarely see his minutes eclipse the 20-minute mark this season acting as LeBron James' backup, so there's no reason to target him in any setting.
Oct 8 - 5:36 PM

General manager Koby Altman said Jeff Green will be "a great rotational piece" for the Cavs this season.

"[Green] is going to back up LeBron [James] and be a multi-faceted forward that can guard on the perimeter and in the paint," Altman said. It's just a one-year, $2.3 million deal for Green, so it's really a no-risk move for the Cavs. He's not going to be a fantasy target in just about all leagues.
Jul 26 - 5:07 PM

Jeff Green has officially signed his one-year, $2.3 million deal with Cleveland.

Green will be joining the ring chaser club in Cleveland, but he won't be earning enough consistent playing time with the Cavs to warrant any attention in fantasy hoops.

The Cavs have reached a one-year, $2.3 million deal with Jeff Green, according to Jeff Zilgitt of USA Today.

One year after the Magic made a head-scratching move to sign Green for $15 million, the 30-year-old forward won't be making that much this time around. Green hasn't really been an effective player based on metrics, but his positional versatility could come in handy, especially when the Cavs rest players. He won't be playing much while the Cavs are healthy.
Jul 7 - 7:57 PM

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.
Mar 31 - 12:36 PM

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.
