Jeff Green will come off the bench against the Blazers on Thursday.

The Magic did not unload Jeff Green's deal and were surprisingly quiet today. Green figures to lose playing time going forward with the Magic wanting to get a look at their players under contract for 2017-18.
Feb 23 - 5:25 PM

The Pistons and Magic have discussed a trade that would send Jeff Green and D.J. Augustin to Detroit for Reggie Jackson, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

The Magic signed Green to a one-year, $15 million deal, so that expiring contract could help the Magic make a move. It is interesting to see they have talked about a Jackson deal to pick up a big contract despite a terrible season. Last year, we saw the Magic and Pistons pull the reverse on this with the Magic trading away Tobias Harris for the expiring deals of Brandon Jennings and Ersan Ilyasova -- Tobias has been good, though. Anyway, Jeff Green being dealt would open up minutes for Aaron Gordon and Mario Hezonja.

Jeff Green moved into Orlando's starting unit on Wednesday and had 11 points, three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 35 minutes.

Green's start may be temporary, however, if the Magic eventually opt for a lineup that includes Terrence Ross alongside C.J. Watson (or another PG), Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon and Nik Vucevic. Even if the veteran Green does continue to start, he's been far too unreliable to own in standard leagues.
Feb 15 - 10:01 PM

Jeff Green will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Spurs.

Orlando's first starting five sans Serge Ibaka will feature C.J. Watson, Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon, Green and Nikola Vucevic. Head coach Frank Vogel said that he's hesitant to give Gordon major minutes at the four-spot due to concerns about the team's perimeter defense, so he'll continue to experiment with the 30-year-old Green at power forward.

Jeff Green (personal) returned to action on Thursday with three points, five rebounds and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes against the 76ers.

If Aaron Gordon (foot) can't go, there's a decent chance Green starts the next time out. Mario Hezonja may have only had a one-time chance to show what he could do and coach Frank Vogel said he likes Green's durability. Still, Green isn't really an add here.
Feb 9 - 10:02 PM

Jeff Green (personal reasons) will play on Thursday vs. the 76ers.

He missed Tuesday's game because he was with his family after his fiance gave birth to the couple's first child. With Aaron Gordon (foot) out tonight, Green is likely to start and could eclipse 30+ minutes in a great matchup -- the 76ers allow the 10th most fantasy points to opposing small forwards. To be clear, he's only on the radar in DFS and as a short-term pickup in deeper leagues since Gordon is day-to-day.

Jeff Green (personal reasons) will not play Tuesday vs. Houston.

Green is with his family after his fiance gave birth to the couple's first child Tuesday morning. After averaging 23.4 minutes per game in January, Green has seen his role reduced a bit over the first few games in February. He is averaging 8.0 points and 2.3 rebounds in 15.9 minutes over the three games Orlando has played this month. Starting forwards Aaron Gordon and Serge Ibaka should see an uptick in minutes with Green unavailable on Tuesday.
Feb 7 - 1:08 PM

Jeff Green scored 16 points with three rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes on Sunday against the Raptors.

Green bounced back after a terrible outing on Friday night. He has scored in double figures in eight of his last nine games, while averaging over 23 minutes per game during that stretch. In the last five games, he has averaged 12.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and one 3-pointer per game. Despite his recent solid stretch, Green tends to be a frustrating player to own due to his volatility.
Jan 29 - 10:21 PM

Jeff Green scored two points off the bench against the Celtics on Friday, adding four rebounds and two turnovers in 16 minutes.

The only reason Green started on Tuesday was because the Magic were extremely thin at guard and they needed C.J. Watson to be a combo PG-SG for that one. Green was getting plenty of shots in his role as a combo forward, but it really hasn't led to much fantasy value. He's very annoying to own in standard leagues and most owners can do better.
Jan 27 - 9:53 PM

Jeff Green will be bumped back to the bench on Friday vs. Boston, with C.J. Watson replacing him in the starting lineup.

Green is averaging 10.4 points and 3.0 rebounds in 23.4 minutes over the 36 games he played off the Orlando bench this season. However, Green has been playing better of late. He's scored in double-figures in six straight games, and is averaging 13.3 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.0 3-pointers over that stretch.
Jan 27 - 6:35 PM

Jeff Green moved into the starting lineup for the Magic on Tuesday and hit 3-of-11 shots for 13 points, seven rebounds and a steal in 34 minutes.

It was an eventful day for Green, who replaced C.J. Watson in the starting five (who was filling in for injured Evan Fournier (heel), and then suffered a sprained ankle that sent him to the locker room before halftime. He didn't shoot it well and missed all three of his 3-point attempts, but also hit 7-of-7 free throws. We still don't have a timetable for Fournier's return, so it's possible Green continues to start until further notice. And Green's been decent lately, averaging 13.8 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 1.0 3-pointers over his last five games, while shooting just 38 percent. He's due to start making some shots soon.
Jan 24 - 10:09 PM

Jeff Green (ankle) will return to Tuesday's game vs. the Bulls.

He landed on Dwyane Wade's foot and appeared to sprain his left ankle. He walked back to the locker room under his own power, but quickly returned to the bench and is good to go for the second half.
Jan 24 - 8:00 PM

Jeff Green will enter the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Bulls, sending C.J. Watson back to the bench.

Watson was doing a whole lot of nothing as a starter, so it's not all that surprising to see Frank Vogel turn to Green with the hopes of infusing some offense into the first unit. Elfrid Payton, Aaron Gordon, Serge Ibaka and Nikola Vucevic will join Green in the starting five tonight, and Payton should be logging major minutes with both D.J. Augustin (ankle) and Evan Fournier (heel) on the sidelines. Green is as inconsistent as they come, so he's not worth much more than a punt play in DFS.

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.
