Jeff Green did not return to Friday's game vs. the Suns with an illness.
He was pretty active and seemed fine, so this is a bit of a surprise. Green is looking at a reduced workload moving forward anyways with Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson and Larry Nance all healthy again. Mar 23 - 8:35 PM

Jeff Green started again on Monday and hit 5-of-8 shots and 4-of-4 free throws for 14 points, zero rebounds, three assists, one steal and a block, and was 0-for-2 from downtown in the win.

Green had 21 points in 43 minutes on Saturday, but wasn't needed as much on offense tonight with Kevin Love back in action for the Cavaliers. They're banged up enough, though, that Green should continue to get big minutes down the stretch for the Cavs and he should be in line for three more solid fantasy lines this week. Stay the course.

Jeff Green was in the starting in lineup Saturday in Chicago, finishing with 21 points across 43 minutes.

Green was leaned upon hard with Kevin Love (hand), Larry Nance Jr. (hamstring), Cedi Osman (hip) and Tristan Thompson (ankle) all missing from the Cleveland frontcourt. He is averaging 18.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game over the past two starts, hitting 50.0 percent (13-of-26) from the field. Green is worth using in deeper fantasy leagues while logging heavy minutes.
Mar 17 - 11:17 PM

Jeff Green went 5-of-12 from the field and 5-of-6 from the line on his way to 16 points in Thursday's 113-105 loss to the Trail Blazers.

Green added one 3-pointer, five rebounds, four assists and one turnovers through 34 minutes of floor time, and he could be looking at minutes in the 30s while Kevin Love (hand), Tristan Thompson (ankle), Cedi Osman (hip) and Larry Nance (hamstring) are banged up. Still, he won't be much more than a low-end guy in really deep leagues.
Mar 16 - 1:11 AM

Jeff Green is starting at center against the Blazers on Thursday.

It was reported that Ante Zizic would start, but it'll be a super small lineup with Green at the five. Green should be getting decent minutes, so he's worth a stream or as a DFS play.
Mar 15 - 8:43 PM

Jeff Green made the start again on Tuesday in Phoenix, finishing with 11 points across 27 minutes.

Green hit just 4-of-12 from the field, including 1-of-3 from behind the 3-point line, but he added four rebounds with three steals and three blocked shots while finishing with a plus-18 rating to salvage the fantasy stat line. Green has been forced into a starting role with injuries to Rodney Hood (back) and Cedi Osman (hip), but he isn't seizing the chance. He is shooting just 9-of-32 (28.1 percent) from the floor over the past three outings. He'll try to get back on track Thursday in Portland.
Mar 14 - 12:49 AM

Jeff Green started on Sunday but finished with only seven points on 2-of-8 shooting, three rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes.

The Cavs were missing Rodney Hood (back) and Cedi Osman (hip) tonight, which forced coach Ty Lue to go with a small lineup featuring Green at SF and LeBron at PF. "If we're small, I don't see how [we can prevent offensive rebounds]," Lue said before the game. "We just gotta continue to keep boxing out and we gotta gang rebound." The Cavs were crushed 51-37 on the glass anyway, and Green is too inconsistent to own even if he earns more starts.
Mar 12 - 12:43 AM

Jeff Green is getting the start on Sunday against the Lakers.

Rodney Hood and Cedi Osman are out, so Green is the next man up. Green has played 767 minutes next to LeBron James on the year, and his numbers aren't bad. Per 36, he posted 16.1 points, 4.5 boards, 1.7 dimes, 0.8 steals and 1.1 treys. That's not much in nine-category leagues, but Green could be an option in DFS or points leagues.
Mar 10 - 3:43 PM

Jeff Green ended up with eight points, four rebounds and an assist over 25 minutes in Friday's loss against the Clippers.

Green was seeing a few more minutes with both Rodney Hood (back) and Cedi Osman (hip) each checking out of the game due to injuries. If one or both remain on the shelf it will likely be Green seeing a bump in playing time on Sunday against the Lakers. He might be a decent mid-tier DFS play as a result.
Mar 10 - 2:26 AM

Jeff Green (back) returned to action on Wednesday with 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting in 17 minutes.

Green added one rebound, one block and one 3-pointer off the bench, but this about sums up his fantasy appeal. The Cavs' bench is devoid of reliable options unless you need specialists in 3-point shooting (Kyle Korver) or scoring (Jordan Clarkson) -- and even those guys are unpredictable night-to-night.
Mar 8 - 1:44 AM

Jeff Green (back) will play Wednesday against the Nuggets.

He should be back in his 20-minute reserve role tonight following a two-game stint on the sidelines, which will result in fewer minutes for Cedi Osman and Kyle Korver. Green isn't worth rostering in most leagues.
Mar 7 - 1:15 PM

Jeff Green (back) will not play against the Nuggets on Saturday and is also out against the Pistons on Monday.

He missed Tuesday's game for his lower back soreness and he played 22 minutes on Thursday. It sounds like Green may have to battle through this injury for most of the season, but the Cavs have enough depth without him. Expect it to be a committee approach to fill his playing time with coach Ty Lue going with a hot-hand approach late.
Mar 3 - 5:25 PM

Jeff Green admitted that he's still trying to find his groove with the new-look second unit after dealing with lower back soreness.

"With what was on my plate, I had a lot to deal with, I wasn't doing the proper things that I had to do to take care of my body. And it affected me," Green said. The veteran has really struggled over his last four games since the All-Star Break, averaging just 7.5 points, 2.5 rebounds, and nothing else on 40.7% shooting, including a lousy 20.0% from behind the 3-point line. "We have to find that balance still," head coach Tyronn Lue said. "Searching for that balance."
Mar 3 - 12:55 PM

Jeff Green (lower back) played 22 minutes off the bench on Thursday, posting five points four rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer.

Green wound up missing one game with his injury, but his return couldn't prevent a costly loss to the visiting Sixers. The Cavs still hold the No. 3 seed in the East, but tonight's loss means the No. 6 seed Sixers are just 2.5 games behind them. For fantasy purposes, of course, Green has nothing to merit ownership.
Mar 1 - 11:10 PM

Jeff Green (lower back) is available to play against the 76ers on Thursday.

He could be looking at a few extra minutes with J.R. Smith serving a one-game suspension. Green was held out of action on Tuesday due to soreness, so he could be back up to his normal 22.1 minutes per game on the season. He'll be an option as a DFS punt play, but doesn't have much value in standard leagues.
