Jeff Green made 6-of-11 from the field for 18 points against the 76ers on Saturday with one rebound, one assist and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.
Before tonight, his efficiency has been down with his new team. He made 43.4 percent from the field with 1.4 treys with the Celtics this season, but he was at just 38.1 percent from the field with 0.6 treys with the Grizzlies before tonight. There's not a ton of upside here. Jan 24 - 11:50 PM

Jeff Green was very quiet in his first start for the Grizzlies on Wednesday, scoring six points on 2-of-6 shooting with two rebounds, one assist and one block.

Green also committed four fouls and his fantasy value may take a dive as a starter, as he won't get nearly as many per-minute touches or shot attempts as he was seeing with the second unit. He's been solid since the trade to Memphis and owners should give him some slack even if he flops again vs. the 76ers' lenient defense on Saturday.

Jeff Green will start against the Raptors on Wednesday.

It'll be his first start with his new team. Green has been in double-digit scoring in every game with the Grizzlies and his minutes might climb into the mid-30s. He's still a risky play tonight considering he has not been very efficient. Tony Allen or Courtney Lee will move to the bench. We'll add an update once the info is available.

Jeff Green made 5-of-14 from the field for 11 points with eight rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and two turnovers in 32 minutes against the Mavericks on Monday.

It's encouraging to see him get so many shots and add some other stats. Green has been in double-figure scoring in each of his four games with his new team and had averages of 16.0 points, 4.3 boards, 1.7 assists, 0.3 blocks, 0.3 steals and 1.0 treys in his previous three. He's not going to be a fantasy savior, but he's worth a look if you're sick of the guy at the end of your bench.

Jeff Green had another terrific game off the bench on Saturday during a 102-98 win over the Blazers with 17 points, five rebounds, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

It's been a seamless transition with 29.4 minutes per game with his new team. In his three games, Green averaged 16.0 points, 4.3 boards 0.3 steals and 1.0 triples on 39.5 percent from the field. As bad as that shooting line looks, Green has taken 48.8 percent of his attempts from within eight feet, which is up from 38.1 percent from his Boston days. That should allow him to shoot a higher percentage. Still, he's not a high-upside guy and isn't a must-own player.

Jeff Green scored 21 points off the bench in his second game for the Grizzlies on Friday, hitting 8-of-18 shots (no threes) with five rebounds, two assists and one block.

Green logged 31 minutes and owners should run and grab him if he was dropped. He might struggle to crack mid-round value, but it's also possible that playing with better, facilitating teammates could help his game. At this point owners have to feel good about his chances to hold solid late round value (with a hint of upside).

Jeff Green came off the bench in his Memphis debut and had 10 points, three rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes.

He hit just 3-of-11 shots and was 0-for-4 from downtown, but could eventually replace Tony Allen in the starting lineup. Then again, he could also come off the bench and be the sixth man for the Grizzlies, but whichever scenario pans out, his value is going to take a hit with his new team.

Jeff Green and Russ Smith have completed their physicals, and are now officially members of the Memphis Grizzlies.

There's no reason to think that Green won't be available for Wednesday's game against the Nets, however whether he starts or comes off the bench during his first game with the Grizzlies remains to be seen. Green is looking like a fourth-option in a slowed-down Memphis offense, so his value will certainly take a hit. However, owners in standard leagues should wait and see how things shake out before making a premature cut.
Jan 13 - 4:55 PM

Jeff Green was not present at Grizzlies practice on Tuesday as he was undergoing a his physical, but is expected to be with the team for Wednesday's game against the Nets.

Green was acquired as part of a three-team trade with the Celtics and Pelicans and should see his first action as a Grizzly on Wednesday. It's unclear exactly how the Grizzlies will work Green into their rotation, but his fantasy value is due to take a hit as he goes from being the first option in a fast-paced Celtics offense to being a tertiary option in a slowed-down Grizzlies attack.
Jan 13 - 1:19 PM

The Grizzlies, Celtics and Pelicans have finalized their three-team trade on Monday.

Memphis acquires Jeff Green from Boston and Russ Smith from New Orleans, the Celtics acquire Austin Rivers from the Pelicans as well as Tayshaun Prince and a future first-round pick from the Grizzlies, and Quincy Pondexter winds up in New Orleans. The deal was announced last week, and it's now official.
Jan 12 - 11:37 AM

The Celtics, Grizzlies, and Pelicans have reportedly agreed on a five-player deal sending Jeff Green to the Grizzlies.

Jeff Green will head to Memphis in exchange for Tayshaun Prince, Austin Rivers, and a future Memphis first-round pick. Green's value will take a hit going from a main guy in a fast-paced offense, to a third-option at best in a slowed-down Memphis offense. However, owners should wait and see how things play out in Memphis before making a premature cut. The teams involved have a trade call with the league on Monday, at which point the deal will become official.

Jeff Green did not take the floor for warmups in Friday's game against the Pacers.

If the Celtics really want to get a deal done, then why would they risk an injury for an asset? While Green is on the active list, it would be a shock to see him on the court. Expect Marcus Smart, Evan Turner and Jae Crowder to benefit.
Jan 9 - 6:46 PM

The Jeff Green trade may not be completed on Friday night.

In case you missed it, Green will be sent to the Grizzlies for Tayshaun Prince and a first-round pick. Green is active for Friday night, but he is very unlikely to play tonight. If he's out, the Celtics could start Marcus Smart and push Evan Turner to the small forward spot, or they could start Jae Crowder. Stay tuned and there should be another update coming before tip.
Jan 9 - 6:34 PM

The Celtics are nearing an agreement to send Jeff Green to Memphis for Tayshaun Prince and a first-round pick, according to Yahoo! Sports.

Well, general manager Danny Ainge has been busy today. Green will likely slide into the starting small forward spot, but he's not going to be heavily involved in the offense with the Grizzlies leaning on their big men along with Mike Conley. His usage rate will likely plummet from his current 23.7 while his efficiency should see an uptick, so he is a fairly easy player to cut in standard leagues now. Meanwhile, Marcus Smart and Evan Turner should get more run while James Young is not going to be a healthy scratch anymore. Jae Crowder would also benefit, too.
Jan 9 - 5:44 PM

The talk between the Grizzlies and Celtics involving a Jeff Green trade is "heating up" and "getting more serious," according to

The Celtics will obviously want a draft pick or two, but it sounds like it's going down at some point this month. Green will lose fantasy value with the Grizzlies due to less shots going his way, and he was already just the No. 182 player in standard leagues over the past month, so fantasy owners should be browsing for a new guy to add soon. Meanwhile, James Young will get some playing time while Evan Turner and Marcus Smart will also benefit.
