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. Dec 7 - 10:31 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.
Dec 4 - 8:40 PM

Jeff Green scored 16 points with six rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers against the 76ers on Friday.

He continues to get decent minutes with 25.0 in his last three since he moved to the bench again. Green's best game in this span was tonight, but that's likely more about the 76ers bump. His upside just isn't high enough to add in most standard-style leagues. He may lose a couple minutes to Jodie Meeks, too.
Dec 2 - 10:17 PM

Jeff Green came off the bench to hit 5-of-8 shots for 14 points, two rebounds and a steal in 27 minutes of Thursday's tough loss to the Grizzlies.

Starter Aaron Gordon played just 21 minutes, and while Green hasn't really done much to be owned in fantasy leagues, he's doing a fantastic job of ruining the fantasy value of Gordon. Green could easily replace Gordon in the starting lineup again at any time, but he's come off the bench in two straight since returning from a back injury. Gordon is still the guy to own, but Green is making him a less-than-effective fantasy player right now.

Jeff Green (sore lower back) returned to action on Tuesday vs. the Spurs, scoring six points on 3-of-10 shooting with three rebounds and two assists in 25 minutes.

He came off the bench behind Aaron Gordon and we'd be a little surprised if he moved back into the starting five. Green was shooting 29.6 percent from the field prior to Tuesday and is having a tough year in Orlando. He belongs on the waiver wire.

Jeff Green (sore lower back) will play Tuesday in San Antonio, but he will come off the bench according to coach Frank Vogel.

Green has been a major disappointment this season in Orlando. He hasn't scored more than 11 points in three weeks. Over the Magic's last 10 games, eight of which he started, Green is averaging just 6.0 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists, while shooting a frigid 29.6 percent from the floor; including 17.9 percent from 3-point territory.
Nov 29 - 1:29 PM

Frank Vogel is hopeful that Jeff Green (sore lower back) will be ready for Tuesday's game against the Spurs.

Vogel gave Green the day off during Monday's practice in order to help rest up his back, and given that he's simply dealing with a sore back, it seems there's a decent chance he'll be able to return to the court on Tuesday night. Green will more than likely resume his spot in Orlando's starting five, a move that would send Aaron Gordon (who went scoreless on Sunday) back to the bench. Check back for another update on Green following Tuesday morning's shootaround.
Nov 28 - 2:22 PM

Jeff Green (sore lower back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bucks.

Green said that his back has been bothering him for the past few games, so it sounds like there's a chance he could miss Tuesday's game in San Antonio as well. His absence from tonight's game will likely result in Aaron Gordon returning to the starting five and flirting with around 30 minutes. It's not the best matchup for Gordon, but his numbers will assuredly be better as a starter, so owners shouldn't hesitate to get him active.
Nov 27 - 5:00 PM

Jeff Green (sore lower back) and C.J. Watson (illness) are questionable to play Sunday vs. the Bucks.

Green has been starting for the Magic, but if he's out tonight, that'll more than likely result in Aaron Gordon seeing a significant boost in value with the return to the starting lineup. Watson isn't a major part of the rotation, but if he's out, D.J. Augustin would likely pickup most of his minutes. Stay tuned.
Nov 27 - 4:32 PM

Jeff Green shot 0-of-9 from the field to finish Wednesday's game scoreless with two rebounds and one assist in 20 minutes.

Green is a combined 8-of-33 from the field in his past five games, a sharp decline for the career 43.8 percent shooter. His ascension to the starting lineup has done nothing to improve his fantasy prospects, at least while Aaron Gordon (10 points, four boards, three assists) is healthy.
Nov 16 - 9:49 PM

Jeff Green started again at small forward on Monday and hit 1-of-4 shots for three points, two rebounds and nothing else in 22 minutes.

He's now scored eight or fewer points in four of his last five games and we're still not exactly sure what Aaron Gordon did to lose his job. Green's certainly not doing enough to keep the starting gig all season, so something's going to have to give soon. Gordon's still the player to own here and this is probably a good time to try to buy low on him.
Nov 14 - 9:53 PM

Jeff Green made another start at SF on Sunday, posting 11 points on 4-of-8 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs with three assists and two blocks in 28 minutes.

Green was inserted to generate more offense but that's a questionable proposition -- over the past four games he's averaged just 7.0 points on combined 9-of-26 shooting. As long as Aaron Gordon and Serge Ibaka are healthy, Green is tough to own in a standard-league value.
Nov 13 - 9:46 PM

Jeff Green will remain in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Thunder, with Aaron Gordon coming off the bench.

Frank Vogel will go with the same starting five that only managed to produce 74 points on Friday of Elfrid Payton, Evan Fournier, Green, Serge Ibaka and Nikola Vucevic. Gordon only managed to get on the floor for 25 minutes on Friday night, so hopefully that trend doesn't continue. Vogel made the move to infuse some more offense into his starting five, but Green did not help at all in that department on Friday, going 1-of-6 from the field for four points. Green is not a fantasy option.

Jeff Green played 23 minutes in a start over Aaron Gordon on Friday, finishing with four points, three rebounds, one assist and one steal.

The move to start didn't work. Green is a better fit off the bench as more of an isolation scorer and the ability to play both forward spots. Whatever coach Frank Vogel decides to do with the veteran, his fantasy value won't be very high.
