Jeff Green hit 4-of-4 shots, a 3-pointer and 7-of-8 free throws for 16 points, two rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block in Tuesday's 113-112 Game 1 win at Toronto.
While the fourth quarter and overtime were a bit insane, most of Green's damage occurred earlier in the game, when the Cavs were down. Green was pretty quiet against the Pacers in Round 1 and got some extra minutes due to overtime, but still had his best game of these playoffs tonight. Maybe that will get him going.

Jeff Green came off the bench for two points, two rebounds, one assist and one steal on Wednesday, shooting 1-of-3 from the field in 13 minutes.

Green shot 0-of-7 during a disastrous Game 1 loss and it's no surprise that he was demoted tonight -- the Cavs also benched Rodney Hood, with J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver taking over the starting duties.

Jeff Green was nowhere to be found in Sunday's Game 1 loss to the Pacers, finishing with no points on 0-of-7 shooting.

We have to think that the Cavs will give serious consideration to swapping Green with Larry Nance Jr ahead of Game 2, but it's clear Cleveland is in for a series regardless of what they decide with their lineup permutations. No matter what role Green plays, he's not worth relying on in fantasy leagues going forward.
Apr 15 - 6:21 PM

Jeff Green is in the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Knicks.

There was a report that he could be limited or scratched, so be careful here as the Cavs prepare for the post season.
Apr 11 - 7:56 PM

Jeff Green could be a late scratch on Wednesday.

This report is only coming from one place, so it's not exactly something that should be fully trusted. That said, it certainly makes sense to sit Green with how many minutes he's played, and how he'll be starting in the postseason. Be careful.

Jeff Green made 10-of-12 from the field for 33 points with five rebounds, three assists and five 3-pointers in 41 minutes against the 76ers on Friday.

Sure, a 44-point triple-double is cool and Ben Simmons putting up an epic stat line is fun, but Green dropping a 33-point game with 100-plus TS% is easily the most shocking part of this box scores -- he went 8-of-8 from the line, too. On night's he's not resting, he's going to be starting every game the rest of the way and he's been a better fit next to LeBron than anyone could've thought.
Apr 6 - 9:56 PM

Jeff Green scored 21 points in Thursday's win over Washington, making 8-of-10 field goals, including 2-of-3 from downtown, and all three of his free throws.

The Cavs announced earlier in the day that Green would start for the rest of the season and into the playoffs. This is the type of efficient scoring they hope they'll receive. Green didn't contribute much else besides points on Thursday, finishing with one rebound, one assist, one steal and one turnover in 32 minutes.
Apr 5 - 11:54 PM

Jeff Green will start for the rest of the season and in the playoffs.

A lot of teams that have signed Green may have regretted it, but this time it's worked out for the Cavs for the most part.
Apr 5 - 6:34 PM

Jeff Green started on Tuesday over Larry Nance and had 12 points, two 3-pointers, a steal and three blocks in a 112-106 win over the Raptors.

Nance was initially named as the starter, but it was called a clerical error, and he finished with six points, one steal and one block off the bench in just 16 minutes. Green came through with the threes and blocks tonight and the Cavs got a nice win over the No. 1 seed in the East.
Apr 3 - 9:33 PM

Jeff Green scored 18 points on Wednesday, making 6-of-15 field goals and 5-of-5 free throws with one rebound, one assist and one steal in 32 minutes.

This was Green's fifth-highest scoring game of the season, and it follows two duds in which he averaged 5.0 points on 26.7% shooting. His role will increase if Kevin Love (concussion) misses more games, but there should still be higher-upside options on your waiver wire.
Mar 28 - 10:04 PM

Jeff Green returned from an illness and hit just 2-of-10 shots for five points, four rebounds, one assist and two steals in 31 minutes.

He was hot a week ago, but now has a pair of five-point games to go along with the DNP over his last three. The minutes were there and with Kevin Love leaving tonight with a loose front tooth (and possible concussion), it's a little surprising that Green didn't do more. He'll look to get it going again against the Hornets on Wednesday.
Mar 27 - 11:04 PM

Jeff Green (illness) will be back in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Heat.

This likely means that Larry Nance will be returning to the second unit, but he should still see quality minutes as the Heat are expected to feature a lot of small ball lineups with both Bam Adebayo (ankle) and Hassan Whiteside (hip) unavailable. Green isn't worth using in most leagues, regardless of how he enters the game.
Mar 27 - 6:48 PM

Jeff Green (illness) has returned to the team and appears to be on track to play Tuesday vs. Miami.

Green, who was initially listed as out on injury report released by the team on Monday, told reporters Tuesday morning that he was diagnosed with whooping cough, but that he's feeling better. We should have an update on his status after Tuesday morning's shootaround.
Mar 27 - 10:23 AM

Jeff Green (illness) is listed as out for Tuesday's game vs. the Heat.

This must be a pretty bad illness for Green to be listed as out with more than 24 hours before tip-off. Luckily for the Cavaliers, they got some reinforcements back recently in Kevin Love, Larry Nance and Tristan Thompson.

Jeff Green (illness) is listed as out for Sunday's game vs. the Nets.

Green stepped up admirably for the Cavaliers when they were banged up, but now Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson and Larry Nance are all healthy. If you were relying on Green, it's probably time to find a replacement on the wire. Green should be considered questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Heat.
