Jeff Green scored 18 points off the bench on Friday vs. the Bucks on 6-of-13 shooting from the field.
The Magic were coming into this one riding a three-game losing streak and Green urged his teammates to show up "mad" tonight. The forward led by example in one of his best games of the season and added seven rebounds with two assists, one steal, two blocks and one triple in 27 minutes. He also finished 5-of-5 from the line. There are a lot of touches up for grabs in Orlando and the Magic are playing more small ball these days, so Green is trending up in deeper leagues with both Evan Fournier (heel, foot) and Jodie Meeks (thumb) out.

Jeff Green returned to the bench and scored five points on 2-of-4 shooting with five rebounds, two assists and a triple in 20 minutes.

He's going to have a decent role going forward because coach Frank Vogel wants to use more small-ball lineups. "[We’ll] probably play less big-big lineups than we had been playing," Vogel said. "Part of the reason, I think, that we haven’t been able to get over the hump is trying to force that maybe a little too much. So we’ll play more spread lineups with Jeff Green at the four." Even with a slight uptick in minutes, Green is not worth owning in most leagues with Serge Ibaka healthy again.
Jan 14 - 12:47 AM

Jeff Green will come off the bench on Friday vs. the Blazers.

This was an expected move with Serge Ibaka (shoulder) back. Green is going to play the four in small-ball lineups going forward, but fantasy owners in standard leagues can do a lot better. He scored 10 points in his last outing with five rebounds on 3-of-13 shooting in 25 minutes.
Jan 13 - 8:53 PM

Jeff Green started Wednesday's game in place of Serge Ibaka (shoulder), scoring 10 points with five rebounds, while making 3-of-13 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs in 25 minutes.

An MRI on Ibaka's shoulder was negative and he's targeting a return in Portland on Friday, so Green isn't an appealing fantasy pickup. In eight starts earlier this season, he averaged an unimpressive 5.9 points on 28.8 percent shooting, 2.5 boards and 1.6 assists.
Jan 12 - 1:31 AM

Jeff Green will get the start against the Clippers on Wednesday.

Revenge game? Green used to play almost straight four in his Clippers days, so this shouldn't be a tough role to adjust to. Ibaka is likely back this weekend, so Green only gets a short-term boost in deep leagues.
Jan 11 - 9:52 PM

Jeff Green scored 17 points in 23 bench minutes vs. Indiana on Sunday, going 7-of-12 from the field with three 3-pointers, two rebounds and two assists.

Green was coming off three straight single-digit scoring games and he doesn't contribute many assists or defensive stats -- he hasn't blocked a shot since Nov. 23. The veteran is an awkward fit on the Magic roster, at least while Aaron Gordon is healthy, and there's no reason to think he'll improve in the second half of the season.
Jan 1 - 9:16 PM

Jeff Green scored 19 points against the Clippers on Wednesday with three rebounds, two assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

Revenge game? The Clippers really missed Luc Mbah a Moute (shoulder) to help on the small forwards, so take this strong scoring line with a grain of salt. Even bigger than that is the fact that Nikola Vucevic (back) missed this one. Green may only have a short-term boost while Vooch is out, especially in points leagues.

Jeff Green played 31 minutes off the bench and hit 6-of-14 shots and a 3-pointer for 16 points, four rebounds and one assist in Tuesday's win over the Hawks.

Green had a pair of three-point duds last week, but has scored between 14 and 20 points in his other six December games. With Aaron Gordon struggling and seeing a dip in minutes, Green might be worth a pickup right now. He's averaging 11.8 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.4 steals and 1.0 3-pointers on 47 percent shooting over his last five games, so he's not doing a whole lot outside of scoring pretty consistently.

Jeff Green scored 17 points off the bench against the Nuggets on Saturday with four rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

His ankle sprain from Friday did seem to bother him. He picked up a lot of clutch minutes in this game and hit a late trey to give the Magic a prayer late. Green could wind up playing more minutes with Nikola Vucevic (back) on the shelf, but he doesn't really do much outside of scoring. He's more of a short-term points pickup.

Jeff Green (ankle) is available to play vs. Denver on Saturday.

His ankle tweak didn't look too bad, so he may not be limited. Green should actually play a lot tonight, so he's on the board as a DFS punt. He doesn't have much value in standard leagues.
Sat, Dec 10, 2016 05:45:00 PM

Jeff Green (ankle) is questionable for Saturday's game vs. Denver.

Green sprained his ankle on Friday night during another disappointing outing in which he scored just three points in 24 minutes. Bismack Biyombo (shoulder) and Nikola Vucevic (back) are also questionable for Saturday. If Green can't play, Aaron Gordon would likely see a significant uptick in minutes. It's possible the Magic might even let Mario Hezonja get some run at small forward as well.
Sat, Dec 10, 2016 10:45:00 AM

Jeff Green scored three points with four rebounds, two assists and one turnover in 24 minutes against the Hornets on Friday.

The Magic submitted their nominee for ugliest lineup combo of 2016 tonight: D.J. Augustin, Green, Aaron Gordon, Serge Ibaka and Bismack Biyombo. Green also looked to have suffered a foot tweak in the second half and was in some pain. The Magic could need him on Saturday to play some forward minutes.
Fri, Dec 9, 2016 09:27:00 PM

Jeff Green's streak of double-digit scoring ended on Wednesday with just three points on 1-of-5 shooting in 22 minutes.

Green added two rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer, but he never got into the flow offensively -- in fairness, neither did any of his teammates. One lousy game isn't sufficient cause to cut him in deeper leagues, but this is a reminder that he tends to run hot and cold.
Wed, Dec 7, 2016 10:31:00 PM

Jeff Green came off the bench and hit 6-of-9 shots, a 3-pointer and 7-of-8 free throws for 20 points, three rebounds and a steal in 25 minutes on Tuesday.

Green is rolling right now, scoring between 14 and 20 points in each of his last four games, and averaging 14 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.0 3-pointers on 51 percent shooting over his last five. He's coming off the bench behind Aaron Gordon, but is getting 26 minutes a night, making him worth a look on your waiver wire if you've got a player you've been wanting to drop.

Orlando followed up Friday's blowout victory with a win in Detroit on Sunday, aided by Jeff Green's 14 points on 6-of-11 FGs, two 3-pointers, five boards and three assists in 30 minutes.

The Magic have brought Green off the bench for the past five games, posting a 3-2 record in that span. The move seems to be helping Green, who has followed up an atrocious offensive stretch with three straight games in double-digits. He's a combined 17-of-32 from the field during that span but doesn't do enough across the board to merit 12-team ownership.
