Jeff Green got the start on Friday in a loss to the Blazers, finishing with 11 points, five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 36 minutes.
He had a better chance to perform with the Clippers banged up in the last two. Green will head into free agency afters showing some promise with the Grizzlies after they lost Marc Gasol (foot). His fantasy value hinges on his destination perhaps more than any other player. Apr 30 - 1:25 AM

Austin Rivers, J.J. Redick, Luc Mbah a Moute, Jeff Green and DeAndre Jordan will start on Friday.

He Clippers are going bigger in this game, but don't expect the overall minutes to change. Green should still be very busy in the first unit and obviously there's no need to panic on Jamal Crawford.
Apr 29 - 10:28 PM

Jeff Green scored 17 points off the bench during Game 5, making 6-of-10 shots with six rebounds, three steals, two assists and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

Blake Griffin's quad injury has prematurely ended his season, leaving Green a big opportunity even if he isn't starting. He can't fill the void by himself, and more minutes are also available for Wes Johnson (five points, five rebounds) and Paul Pierce (two rebounds), but Green is easily the most palatable DFS option.
Apr 28 - 1:02 AM

Jeff Green is expected to move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's Game 5 against Portland.

Blake Griffin (quad) is going to miss the remainder of the postseason for Los Angeles, so the starting four-spot is Green's to lose. He'll be taking on a much larger role on offense with Chris Paul (hand) also done for the year, so he'll be a reasonable guy to consider in DFS with his minutes set to spike to the mid-30s.
Apr 26 - 6:32 PM

Jeff Green scored 17 points with five rebounds and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Blazers on Monday.

He is likely headed for a bigger role in Game 5. Chris Paul (hand) won't be playing while Blake Griffin (quad) could miss some action, as well. Green does a lot of scoring in isolation, so he shouldn't be affected negatively with the loss of CP3. He's on the radar as a DFS play.
Apr 26 - 1:39 AM

Jeff Green (knee) scored 18 points on 7-of-21 shooting Friday, to go with four boards, three 3-pointers, one steal, one block, and one turnover in 36 minutes off the bench.

Green had zero competition for minutes in this one with a majority of the Clippers' roster unavailable, but that is not the case on most nights. He's been a negligible factor in fantasy hoops since Blake Griffin got back to the court, so there's no incentive to pick him up in most settings with Griffin set to return to action Sunday vs. Dallas.
Apr 9 - 3:06 AM

Jeff Green (knee) will play on Friday vs. the Jazz.

It's just a contusion for Green after he banged knees with Tarik Black on Wednesday, and the Clippers will need him to play a lot of minutes since they will only have nine available players. Green has been a hit-or-miss option this season, but he's worth a long look in DFS tonight with a ton of opportunity in front of him.
Apr 8 - 1:08 PM

Jeff Green (knee) and Austin Rivers (ankle) are being listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Jazz.

Green banged knees with Tarik Black during the fourth quarter of Wednesday's win over the Lakers, and with the game being well in hand, he did not return to the court. However, Doc Rivers did not seem overly concerned when discussing the injury, saying he should be good, and with Rivers resting his entire starting lineup for Friday's game they could use Green's services. Rivers also downplayed Austin's injury, and those guys will be looking at some massive opportunity if they can give it a go Friday night. Stay tuned.
Apr 7 - 4:34 PM

Jeff Green exited Wednesday's game with a bruised right knee, finishing with three points, two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 14 minutes.

Green took knee-to-knee contact from Tarik Black in the fourth quarter and he stayed down for a few minutes, but he walked off under his own power. The Clippers can't move up or down in the standings over their final four games so it wouldn't be surprising to see Green get another game off as a precaution. Check his status before relying on him vs. the Jazz on Friday.

Jeff Green scored 21 points off the bench on Tuesday vs. the Lakers, adding three boards, two assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.

He had just four points in 15 minutes in his previous outing and his role is going to be reduced with Blake Griffin back, but he picked up a lot of extra minutes in garbage time tonight. Unless the Clippers rest their starters on Wednesday vs. the Lakers, Green isn't reliable enough to trust in most lineups.
Apr 6 - 1:33 AM

Jeff Green vanished with Blake Griffin active on Sunday, playing 15 minutes off the bench to score four points with three turnovers and no other stats to his credit.

Green played at least 25 minutes in each of his previous six games but he's a marginal part of the rotation now that Griffin is healthy. Anyone clinging to him in deeper leagues can take this as their cue to cut him loose.
Apr 3 - 7:37 PM

Jeff Green scored 10 points vs. the Celtics on Monday with four boards, one assist and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

Paul Pierce left the game with a knee contusion and a sprained ankle, so he's going to miss some time. Green should see a few more minutes on Wednesday vs. the Wolves and Thursday vs. the Thunder, but keep in mind that Blake Griffin (hand, quad) will return to the lineup on Sunday vs. the Wizards. Green is still better suited for deeper leagues.
Mar 29 - 1:24 AM

Jeff Green had a solid outing of the Clippers bench on Sunday, tallying 13 points, six boards, two steals, one block and zero turnovers through 29 minutes of action.

Green went to work with a favorable matchup against Denver, and he got some extended run with the game essentially being over by the third quarter. Unfortunately Green is consistently inconsistent, and with Blake Griffin (hand, quad) nearing his return to the court, there’s not much incentive to own Green in most settings.
Mar 27 - 6:07 PM

Jeff Green (forehead laceration) posted 13 points, three rebounds, one assist and four steals in his return on Wednesday, making 4-of-9 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs in 25 minutes of action.

It was initially reported that Green had a concussion, but that proved to be false. He's fully healthy and should resume starting ahead of Paul Pierce in the near future, but inconsistency makes him hard to rely on outside of deep fantasy formats.
Mar 24 - 1:57 AM

Jeff Green (forehead laceration) has been cleared to play and he'll return from a one-game absence Wednesday vs. the Warriors.

Green could start, which would send Paul Pierce back to the bench. Green's inconsistency makes him an unappealing option in standard leagues.
