Danny Green blocked a career-high six shots on Thursday, adding five points, seven rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes of action.
To put this in perspective, Green's blocks-fest was the most by a Spurs guard since George Gervin in 1977. He shot just 2-of-11 from the field tonight but didn't have any turnovers, and contributed to enough categories that the blocks weren't on an island. This random outburst isn't enough for most owners to change their view of him, however, as he came in averaging just 18.8 minutes in the Spurs' past four games. Mar 15 - 11:46 PM

Danny Green said he will embrace his role off the bench if it sticks.

"It was a little different mindset," Green said. "I’m going to take it in a positive light. I’m going to come in and do my job and try to bring energy and try to win games." He'll still have a nice role as long as Kawhi Leonard (quad) is out and is a great source of money stats, as he averaged 1.4 steals, 1.0 blocks and 2.8 triples in February.
Mar 1 - 10:26 AM

Danny Green shifted to the starting lineup after halftime on Wednesday, finishing with eight points on 3-of-8 shooting, five rebounds, two steals, two 3-pointers and zero turnovers in 27 minutes.

Davis Bertans headed to the bench as a consequence, but there's a lot up in the air for San Antonio right now. In addition to Kawhi Leonard's vague goal of returning in March, Pau Gasol is dealing with a bone bruise in his knee, and LaMarcus Aldridge went down with a sprained ankle tonight. Green isn't very appealing in most points leagues, but he's been a stealthy top-60 roto option over the past month.
Mar 1 - 1:15 AM

Danny Green returned to action on Sunday with 22 points, three rebounds, one steal and one block in 23 minutes, making 6-of-11 FGs and 5-of-6 FTs.

Green tied his season-high with five 3-pointers and he fell just shy of his high for scoring (24 points on Nov. 7). This was his first game as a reserve since 2014 and the early results were encouraging -- with Kawhi Leonard (quad) out indefinitely, he could still carve out 24-26 minutes if he sticks in a bench role. He's still just a fringe option better suited to roto leagues.

Danny Green (illness) will play Sunday vs. the Cavs.

Green sat out Friday's game with the illness, but he was never listed on the injury report today and always expected to get back out there. He'll likely start, which will shift Patty Mills back to the second unit.
Feb 25 - 2:53 PM

Danny Green (illness) is not on the injury report for Sunday against the Cavs.

That should mean he's OK to play after he had some bad spaghetti to keep him out of action on Friday. He'll likely be in the starting lineup.
Feb 24 - 4:08 PM

Danny Green (illness) will not play against the Nuggets on Friday.

He reportedly had bad spaghetti to cause food poisoning, so this makes it the second noteworthy food issue for the Spurs -- Kawhi Leonard was sick from a Philly cheesesteak years ago. With him out, it'll be a team effort from the guards with Bryn Forbes, Patty Mills, Derrick White and Manu Ginobili playing more.
Feb 23 - 8:07 PM

Danny Green (illness) is sick and is uncertain to play on Friday against the Nuggets.

The Spurs would probably hold him out here, which means we should see more Bryn Forbes, Patty Mills, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili could be playing more. We should have an update shortly.
Feb 23 - 7:42 PM

Danny Green hit 4-of-9 shots and three 3-pointers for 13 points, five rebounds and two blocks in 30 minutes of Monday's loss to the Jazz.

Green hit a big 3-pointer to give the Spurs a late lead, but Donovan Mitchell stole the ball from Manu Ginobili and the Spurs totally botched their final possession, as Kyle Anderson couldn't figure out what to do with the ball. Ginobili almost hit a circus shot to win it while falling out of bounds, but it didn't go in. Green had just four points in 22 minutes on Saturday and tends to follow good games with bad ones, which is why he's likely available in your league.
Feb 12 - 11:46 PM

Danny Green was not traded on Thursday despite being linked to discussions with the Clippers.

The Spurs are reportedly concerned that Green will opt out of his $10 million player option and command a premium in free agency, but Bradley is already slated for unrestricted free agency. In the end, Green and Bradley both stayed put and their fantasy values didn't budge.
Feb 8 - 3:56 PM

The Spurs and Clippers have discussed a trade involving a first-round pick from San Antonio and Danny Green for Avery Bradley.

As of right now, Marc Stein of the New York Times said that the Spurs are hesitant to give up the draft pick. Green has a $10 million player option for 2018-19 and San Antonio might be worried that he'll opt out, while Bradley is set to hit the open market this summer. Green would lose value in this scenario since Lou Williams is in Los Angeles, while Bradley may get a small bump playing for the best coach in the NBA.
Feb 8 - 9:38 AM

Danny Green had 17 points and three rebounds in 22 minutes on Wednesday, making 6-of-9 shots including a 5-of-9 mark from downtown.

A report came out during this game that the Spurs might be interested in trading for Clippers guard Avery Bradley. Green has a $10 million player option for 2018-19, so that might be an indication that San Antonio expects him to opt out and command more in free agency. Owners should simply keep an eye on the situation through Thursday's trade deadline, but the acquisition of any wing players would likely be bad news for Green.
Feb 8 - 1:38 AM

Danny Green managed nine points, four rebounds, three blocked shots and a steal over 33 minutes Saturday against Utah.

Green was 3-of-8 from the field, including 3-of-7 from behind the arc, and he turned it over just once. The points weren't quite there, but he still has three triples for the second straight game after being blanked from behind the 3-point line in his final three outings in January. He also has at least one steal in each of the past five contests, and he is averaging 1.6 blocked shots per game over the past seven outings.
Feb 4 - 12:10 AM

Danny Green scored a team-high 22 points during a 102-91 loss to the Rockets on Thursday, adding six rebounds, three assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

We've talked about the Danny Green Roller Coaster before and that ride still works. Green only played nine minutes on Sunday and coach Gregg Popovich said he wasn't hurt. Green will have lines like this on occasion, which has helped him flirt with top-100 value despite being maddeningly inconsistent.
Feb 2 - 12:35 AM

Danny Green didn't play in the second half of Sunday's game vs. the Kings.

When asked if Green was injured, Gregg Popovich replied, "Nope. I played Bryn [Forbes] instead." Green's fantasy value was trending up with Kawhi Leonard (quad) ruled out indefinitely, but moves like this make him frustrating to own. That said, we're assuming he'll return to his usual 24-30 minute role vs. Denver on Tuesday.
