Jeff Green said he is "trying to take the next step to becoming a leader" with the Celtics this season.
He's already been in Boston with his new teammates and seems to be committed to improving from his disappointing 2013-14 season. Green was one of the most inefficient players in the NBA last season, but he should have the opportunity to be the team's leading scorer. He's a high-ceiling target late in drafts. Sep 18 - 8:42 PM

Jeff Green could be a potential offseason target of the Washington Wizards, according to reports.

There is no indication that the Wizards and Celtics have had discussions about Green but he has been "long coveted" by the Wizards, according to Zach Lowe of Grantland. Trevor Ariza is a free agent after this season, so Green could be a perfect replacement if the Wizards and Ariza can't come to agreement on a new contract. The Wizards don't have much to offer that the Celtics might want in a trade after trading their 2014 first rounder in the Marcin Gortat deal, but the Green is said to be "eminently available" so there may be something to this rumor eventually.

Jeff Green will start his 82nd game of the season on Wednesday.

After missing the entire 2011-12 season, Green has now missed one game over the past two seasons. He's averaging a career-high 16.8 points, 1.6 threes, 4.6 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 0.7 steals on the season, but admitted that trying to be a go-to scorer has been a difficult transition.
Apr 16 - 11:28 AM

Jeff Green scored 27 points during Monday's 113-108 loss to the Sixers to go with three boards, one assist, three steals and two 3-pointers.

He's basically been two different players all season. There's been the Green who will take horrible contested jumpers, and there's the aggressive one who will attack the rim like he did tonight. On the whole, it's been a disappointing season for Green after really coming on strong in 2012-13.
Apr 14 - 10:24 PM

Jeff Green hit just 6-of-18 shots, but filled the stat sheet with 19 points, eight rebounds, two assists, a steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers on Saturday.

If you played Green on the right nights this season, he was highly effective. But unfortunately, he was on a lot of benches on nights when he posted monster lines, and in lineups when he was posting duds. He had a very inconsistent season and it doesn't look like he may be capable of being an NBA alpha dog.
Apr 12 - 10:33 PM

Jeff Green briefly left Monday's game but played 39 minutes, scoring just nine points on 4-of-13 shooting with two rebounds, one assist, four turnovers and two steals.

Green has been doing this all season and when you add up the peaks and valleys he's just a late-round value.
Apr 1 - 12:37 AM

Jeff Green went to the locker room in the first half against the Bulls on Monday and returned to the game.

It did not look serious and he jogged back under his own power. Green is probably fine and he looks to be healthy. Move along. There's nothing to see here.
Mar 31 - 8:27 PM

Jeff Green (neck) scored 16 points on 7-of-14 shooting with two threes, four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in Friday's overtime loss to the Raptors.

Green is among the most inconsistent players to grace fantasy lineups and when you iron it all out he's a late-round value. Jared Sullinger was the only big man to produce for the Celtics, scoring 11 points with nine rebounds, one steal and a three in the loss.
Mar 28 - 9:39 PM

Jeff Green (neck) went through morning shootaround and is expected to play on Friday night. vs. the Raptors.

He had a stiff neck on Wednesday and was able to play through it. "He looks a lot better today," said Celtics coach Brad Stevens. "Tuesday it was bad, Wednesday and it just didn’t get any better, and he wasn’t comfortable at both ends of the floor." Green should be ready to go for tonight.
Mar 28 - 5:19 PM

Jeff Green hit 3-of-9 shots for six points on Wednesday, but sat out the fourth quarter and played just eight second-half minutes with a stiff neck.

"Jeff had a stiff neck and I thought he looked really uncomfortable out there. Otherwise I would have gone back with him," Brad Stevens said. "Yesterday he could hardly move it; today he didn’t look much better. Hopefully by the time we play (the Raptors) again Friday, he feels better." Chris Johnson played the entire fourth quarter and would likely see a lot of minutes if Green can't go on Friday.

Jeff Green disappeared on Wednesday, hitting 3-of-9 shots for six points, two rebounds and a block in

Green is a fantasy mess again, and has been for most of the season. He scored 39 points with four 3-pointers on March 16, but has scored 5, 13, 16 and 6 points in his four games since. There's nothing worse than having Green on your bench when he goes crazy, but it's no fun having him in your lineup on nights like this one, either.
Mar 26 - 10:26 PM

Jeff Green hit 5-of-13 shots and 1-of-7 3-pointers for 13 points, four rebounds and three assists in 31 minutes of a win over the Heat.

We were hoping for more without LeBron James standing in his way, but it wasn't mean to be. Since exploding for 38 points on Sunday, Green has hit 7-of-25 shots for 18 points in his last two games. And that, folks, is who Jeff Green is this year.
Mar 19 - 11:27 PM

Jeff Green followed up his 39-point game on Sunday with a stinker, scoring five points on 2-of-12 shooting with nine rebounds, four assists, one steal, one three and six turnovers in Monday's loss to the Mavs.

Green will post a big line every once in a while but follow it up with a night like this or some other mediocre performance most of the time. It all levels out to late-round value due to various deficiencies in his fantasy game, so try not to get too high or low on any given night.
Mar 18 - 1:42 AM

Jeff Green led the Celtics with 39 points on 12-of-23 field goals and 11-of-12 free throws in Sunday's heartbreaking OT loss to the Pelicans, adding four 3-pointers, six rebounds and one block.

He was coming off a miserable 2-of-14 shooting performance on Friday, and this continues a season-long trend of hit-or-miss games for Green. Despite shooting a career-low 41.3 percent from the field this year, Green is averaging multiple career-highs with 16.9 points and 1.6 threes per game. Boston only plays three times next week but Green's upside makes him a solid option in most leagues.
Mar 16 - 9:10 PM

Jeff Green scored nine points vs. the Suns during an 87-80 loss on Friday, adding five boards, two assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

He shot a disgusting 2-of-14 from the field, but at least he was able to put up some stats in other areas. Green might be on the Mount Rushmore of inconsistent players in the NBA this season, but he is still worth owning in fantasy leagues in hopes he has a positive outburst.
