Jeff Green has picked up his $9.2 million player option for the 2015-16 season according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.
Green's value has taken a hit after some poor performances in Memphis, so he made the right decision. Green disappeared in the playoffs with averages of 8.9 points, 4.7 boards and 1.7 assists while shooting just 33.3 percent from the field and 22.2 percent from 3-point range, so the Grizzlies probably won't be too excited about having him back. He should have a similar role off the bench if Marc Gasol returns in free agency, and he won't be a viable target in most leagues unless he elevates his game to a higher level. Jun 18 - 1:02 PM

Jeff Green is expected to exercise his $9.2 million player option for next season.

He is going to turn 29 this summer and probably only has one more real chance to get a big pay day in a contract. If he does opt in, he'll likely be in a similar role, assuming Marc Gasol is back. Green won't be worth drafting in most leagues for his somewhat low ceiling.

Jeff Green started the second half on Friday night against the Warriors, making just 2-of-8 from the field for six points with seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and no turnovers.

He really didn't have any plays drawn up for him and his numbers with the starters just aren't very good. Green was a better fit with the second unit where he can create for himself and he'll likely have a similar role next season.

Jeff Green started for Memphis on Wednesday night, but hit 5-of-13 shots for 10 points, four rebounds and not much else in a blowout loss at Golden State.

The Grizzlies appeared to be in good shape after taking a 2-1 lead with a surprising Game 2 win at Oracle, but the tables have turned. Green has failed to live up to the hype, and the Grizzlies really need him, or Courtney Lee to step up and score a bunch of points in the absence of Tony Allen's (hamstring) defensive presence. Green has scored 10, 12 and seven points in his last three games, so the outlook's not too promising on him suddenly blowing up.

Jeff Green will start for Tony Allen (hamstring) on Wednesday.

This was expected to happen even if Allen did play because the Grizzlies are going to need some offense. Green should see minutes in the upper 30s and maybe the Grizzlies mix it up with their offensive game plan. He is a good bet for points in the teens.

Jeff Green is likely going to start against the Warriors on Wednesday night for Game 5.

Tony Allen (hamstring) is very much up in the air to play on Wednesday night, but the Grizzlies do need an offensive boost. Coach Dave Joerger said his team is going to have to score 100 points to win another game, so that thought process might have something to do with this move along with Allen's injury. Expect Green to play 33-37 minutes.
May 13 - 5:10 PM

Jeff Green saw a whopping 34 minutes in Monday's Game 4 loss to the Warriors, scoring 12 points on 4-of-8 shooting with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block.

Green is what he is at this point and that's a mixed bag for the Grizzlies. If Tony Allen is rendered useless again by an Andrew Bogut/Draymond Green defense, then it's Green that will be called upon to pick up the slack. If the Grizzlies decide to go small against the Warriors two-big lineup + Harrison Barnes on Zach Randolph lineup, then he would be playing power forward in an attempt to run Andrew Bogut off the floor. Either way, it won't be comfortable to have inconsistent Green in the center of it all.
May 12 - 12:38 AM

Jeff Green shot just 2-of-9 from the field in Wednesday's win over the Blazers, finishing with 10 points, seven boards, one assist and one block in 23 minutes.

Green has been in a terrible slump in the playoffs and his confidence is clearly rattled. He will finish the series with a shooting percentage of just under 27 percent from the field, and his minutes have also been trending down. If the Grizzlies want to give the Warriors a run for their money in the next round, Green must provide them with a consistent scoring presence off the bench.
Apr 30 - 12:47 AM

Jeff Green (back) shot only 3-of-11 from the field vs. the Blazers, but he made 5-of-6 free throws to finish with 11 points, six rebounds, one assist and two blocks.

Green also played 28 minutes without any turnovers and he had a fantastic touch-pass which you can check out via the link below. He didn't even attempt a 3-point shot tonight and Memphis will need him to score with greater efficiency as the playoffs proceed, but a lock-down defensive performance carried them on Sunday.
Apr 19 - 10:53 PM

Jeff Green (back) is listed as a starter for the Grizzlies on Sunday.

His status was never truly in doubt and he'll start alongside Mike Conley, Courtney Lee, Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol. That bumps Tony Allen to a bench role with the Grizzlies finally at full strength to begin their first-round series.
Apr 19 - 7:54 PM

Jeff Green (back) was spotted going through pregame warmups, and he's expected to play Game 1 against Portland on Sunday.

Green has been playing through the pain, and all signs are pointing towards him being available tonight. Check back for another update closer to tip-off, but it's very likely Green will be active tonight.
Apr 19 - 6:51 PM

According to teammate Zach Randolph, Jeff Green's back is showing improvement.

Green is still listed as questionable, but all indications point to him playing vs. the Blazers on Sunday. His back has been bothering him for a while now, but he has been able to play through it so far and it's very unlikely that he will miss tonight's game. We will have an update on his status prior to tip-off.
Apr 19 - 12:29 PM

Jeff Green (back) is questionable for Game 1 against the Blazers on Sunday.

Sources have intimated that Tony Allen (hamstring) is the only Grizzlies player to be in jeopardy and he'll probably do anything he can to get on the court. Among the group of banged up players in Memphis, Green's injury status has been a back-burner issue so owners may want to use him as they normally would.
Apr 17 - 10:27 PM

Jeff Green (back) got on the floor on Monday against the Warriors, scoring four points on 2-of-6 shooting with one rebound, one assist and one steal in 22 minutes.

The Grizzlies starters got throttled by the Dubs and they're all banged up, so it wouldn't be shocking if the now No. 6 seed Grizzlies gave up on seeding and rested up. Use guys like Green and Courtney Lee (nine points, one three, three boards, one steal, 21 minutes) at your own risk on Wednesday against the Pacers, who will be playing for a playoff spot.
Apr 14 - 5:05 AM

Jeff Green (back) will play against the Warriors on Monday.

He's been dealing with a back issue for about a week, but he's played in each of his last three games since suffering the injury. Green could be looking at a lot of responsibility with Marc Gasol (ankle) and Mike Conley (foot) up in the air. He should be worth starting in standard leagues tonight.
