Danny Green failed to connect on his six 3-point attempts in Game 4, going scoreless with two rebounds and two assists in 28 minutes of action.
Five of Green's 3-pointers were of the 'uncontested' variety, meaning no Clippers' defender was within 3.5 feet of him, yet he still came up empty in the tough home loss. He's now averaging 6.5 points on 29.0 percent shooting in the series. Apr 26 - 7:50 PM

Danny Green scored 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting with six rebounds, two assists, three steals and three triples in Friday's Game 3 win over the Clippers.

Green has been quiet but tonight's output was a good sign that he's ready to heat up. Check his DFS prices because he might be undervalued.
Apr 24 - 11:56 PM

Danny Green sank three 3-pointers as part of a 12-point effort on Sunday, adding two rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block to help the Spurs hold off the visiting Suns.

Green now holds the Spurs' single-season record for 3-pointers made at 191, passing former record-holder Chuck Person. San Antonio is riding a very impressive 11-game win streak, which has vaulted them all the way to the No. 2 seed in the West.
Apr 12 - 10:05 PM

Danny Green missed all seven of his shot attempts on Friday, finishing with zero points, two rebounds, four assists and one steal in 24 minutes.

And he might go out and hit seven treys in his next one. The Spurs still have a lot to play for and he should be in all lineups through this weekend. At that point, owners have to decide what to do with his one-game week.
Apr 11 - 1:45 AM

Danny Green was limited to 17 minutes on Tuesday, finishing a lopsided win vs. the Thunder with eight points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds and one assist.

This isn't ideal for Green's fantasy owners, though the low playing time may forestall a rest-day when the Spurs wrap up their back-to-back set on Wednesday. If Green does sit out any more games this season, his playing time would filter down to Marco Belinelli, Manu Ginobili and Reggie Williams.
Apr 7 - 11:07 PM

Danny Green hit all six of his 3-point attempts in the Spurs' 123-93 win over the Nuggets on Friday, finishing with 21 points, one rebound, one assist, one steal and one block in just 20 minutes.

Bad teams give up threes and guys like Green go to town on them. Kawhi Leonard had similar success with 20 point on 9-of-13 shooting, two treys, two boards, four assists, one steal and one block, and the old guys Tim Duncan (four points, seven boards, four assists, two blocks) and Tony Parker (four points, nine assists, one steal) basically took the night off.
Apr 4 - 2:13 AM

Danny Green played just 15 minutes against the Magic on Wednesday during a 103-91 win with three points, two rebounds and one 3-pointer.

The Spurs had four players on their bench log more than 23 minutes while none of the starters were able to get that much playing time. Fantasy owners of the Spurs might want to be careful of setting high expectations in road games. They have one more road game in a back-to-back set on Apr. 7 in Oklahoma City.
Apr 1 - 9:54 PM

Danny Green cooled off during Tuesday's game, making 1-of-3 shots to finish with three points, zero rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes.

He was fully healthy and the low playing time is a product of Gregg Popovich's evil genius, as guys like Marco Belinelli (23 minutes) and Cory Joseph (23 minutes) played more than Green tonight. This shouldn't have any carry-over into Wednesday's road game, so deploy Green as you normally would.
Mar 31 - 11:08 PM

Danny Green hit 7-of-16 shots and two 3-pointers for 20 points, eight rebounds, four assists and two steals in Wednesday's win.

With Manu Ginobili shelved with an ankle injury, there should be more where this came from Green going forward. If he's floating out there on your wire, pick him up. Just keep in mind that he had eight points in Tuesday's loss.
Mar 19 - 12:18 AM

Danny Green knocked down three 3-pointers to finish Sunday's game with 13 points, two assists and one steal in a mere 15 minutes of action.

No Spurs player logged more than 25 minutes in tonight's blowout win. Green's low playing time could even prove to be beneficial next week, as Pop might be less inclined to bench him as a precaution. Green was averaging 11.9 points, 2.4 threes, 4.5 rebounds, 0.9 steals and 1.0 blocks over his previous 10 games, enough for steady top-40 value.
Mar 15 - 9:54 PM

Danny Green put up a big stat line against the Cavs on Thursday with 24 points, four rebounds, one assist, two steals, four blocks and five 3-pointers.

That's a gigantic line, but it's nothing new. In fact, this was his third game this season with at least four threes and four blocks. The rest of the NBA only has two of those games (Kawhi Leonard and James Harden). Green hasn't quite been as hot as he was earlier, but he's really coming on strong. He should be starting in all leagues.
Mar 13 - 2:21 AM

Danny Green was benched 35 seconds into Tuesday's game, but he quickly recovered to finish with 19 points on seven field goal attempts, five 3-pointers, six rebounds, two assists, one block and one turnover.

Gregg Popovich didn't hesitate to yank Green despite the absence of Manu Ginobili (illness) but fortunately the teaching moment had the desired effect and Green was locked in the rest of the way. He's averaging 2.0 threes, 1.2 steals and 0.8 blocks over his past 10 games, to go along with solid percentages and a trickle of across-the-board stats. It's enough for top-50 value in all formats and he's a terrific player to own with 16 games on tap over the next four weeks.
Mar 10 - 11:14 PM

Danny Green posted his standard all-around stat line during Sunday's win over the Bulls, scoring 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting to go with three 3-pointers, three rebounds, one assist, two steals, and two blocks over 25 minutes of action.

Green's numbers don't often jump off the page, but his steady contributions to 3-pointers (2.3), steals (1.3), and particularly blocks (1.1) have him turning in early-round value on the season. Green hit a rough shooting slump during the month of February, but so far he's shooting 45.8 percent from the field during the month of March, so it appears that his slump is behind him.
Mar 8 - 3:44 PM

Danny Green is averaging just 8.7 points, 5.5 boards, 0.5 assists, 0.3 blocks, 0.7 steals and 1.3 treys in 22.7 minutes during his six second-half games this season.

Besides the rebounds, all of those numbers are considerably down from his pre-break numbers. Green was one of the biggest fantasy steals in the first half, but he was one of the bigger roller-coaster rides of the 2013-14 season. Still, he is worth owning in all leagues and he should be fine. If your trade deadline hasn't passed, try to buy low.
Mar 1 - 10:30 AM

Danny Green was quiet against the Warriors on Friday with four points, four rebounds and nothing else in 21 minutes.

This type of line was commonplace last season, but he's done a great job avoiding them this year for the most part. Green has second-round value on the season in standard leagues and he'll get it going again on Monday against the Jazz.
