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.

Date:

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.
Apr 13 - 4:57 PM

Jeff Green (back) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Warriors.

Green has been dealing with back spasms for a while now, and he has continued to play despite not being 100 percent. The Grizzlies could desperately use the bodies Monday, so we would expect Green to remain on the active roster, especially with Tony Allen (hamstring) not even traveling. We should know more on Green's status after shootaround on Monday.
Apr 12 - 6:58 PM

Jeff Green played 41 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday with 15 points, five rebounds, four assists, one block and one 3-pointer on 5-of-16 from the field.

He took an elbow to the face from Blake Griffin, but Green seems to be fine. He was questionable for this game due to a lower back issue, but obviously playing 41 minutes suggests he's fine. If Marc Gasol (ankle) is out, Green is going to have some major offensive responsibilities. He looks like a high-upside, must-start player for Monday against the Warriors.
Apr 12 - 12:54 AM

Jeff Green (back) will play vs. the Clippers on Saturday night.

Green is going to be very busy with Mike Conley and Tony Allen in street clothes, so he belongs in all active lineups tonight despite not being 100 percent. We will let you know how his back holds up after the game.
Apr 11 - 10:05 PM

Jeff Green (back) is questionable to play against the Clippers on Saturday.

The Grizzlies haven't been updating most of their injured guys heading into games, so we might not get an official word on Green until just before the 10:00 EDT tip. For now, his owners can take a no news is good news approach. Green did play 33 minutes on Wednesday and they'll definitely need him in a massive game tonight.
Apr 11 - 4:02 PM

Jeff Green scored 15 points in 33 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday with four rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer.

His back injury wasn't an issue tonight and all that time off from Saturday must have helped. Green hasn't given any indication that he'll be limited going forward, so he's worth owning in standard leagues while Tony Allen (hamstring) remains out.
Apr 8 - 10:39 PM

Jeff Green is dealing with lower back tightness and is up in the air to play on Wednesday.

He had back spasms on Saturday and did not return. Green has been battling back problems since last Monday and maybe the Grizzlies take it easy on him. If he's out, Courtney Lee and Vince Carter would benefit.
Apr 6 - 6:48 PM

Jeff Green is dealing with back spasms and will not be able to return to Saturday's game vs. the Wizards.

The Grizzlies are already without Tony Allen (hamstring), so the last thing they need is another injury on the wing. We will go ahead and consider Green questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Pelicans, but he should have plenty of time to recover in time for that one. Should Green miss any time, Courtney Lee and Vince Carter will have to step up. Green finished tonight's game with nine points, four boards and three assists in 29 minutes.
Apr 4 - 9:38 PM

Jeff Green scored 22 points on 7-of-12 shooting (2-of-5 from deep, 6-of-8 from the line) with five rebounds and two blocks in the Grizzlies' 100-92 win over the Thunder on Friday.

Green has been picking up the slack for his ailing teammates and he even picked up defending Russell Westbrook at times tonight. He's playing well enough to be owned in most standard leagues right now.
