Danny Green scored nine points with two rebounds, one assist, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes against the Nets on Wednesday.
He was at his best this season when Kawhi Leonard (quad) was out, so Green could start trending up again. Although, we do have to mention that Green is maddeningly inconsistent, so his prospective owners probably won't be in for a smooth ride. He should still be owned in standard leagues.

Date:

Danny Green hit 4-of-7 shots and 3-of-6 3-pointers for 11 points, two rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block in 28 minutes of Monday's loss to the Hawks.

Green has played in back-to-back games and played 10 more minutes tonight than he did on Saturday. Manu Ginobili went down (again) with a thigh injury today so Green could see a slightly bigger role going forward, assuming that he can stay healthy. He has been a bit of a nightmare to own, but he also has hit three 3-pointers in each of his last two games, and had at least a steal and block in each of them, which is why people still deal with him in fantasyland.
Jan 15 - 5:40 PM

Danny Green (groin) was good for 11 points, including three 3-pointers, in his return to the lineup Saturday against the Nuggets.

Green was able to hit 4-of-8 from the field, including 3-of-5 from behind the 3-point line, as he did not exhibit any rust after a lengthy layoff. He was limited to 18 minutes, but that was more a result of the lopsided nature of the game and nothing to do with any limitations due to his injury. Eventually Bryn Forbes will see his playing time dry up once the team is involved in a close game.
Jan 13 - 11:33 PM

Danny Green (groin) is questionable for Saturday's game vs. Denver.

He was questionable to face the Lakers on Thursday, but he was ruled out several hours before tip-off and has now missed five games in a row. Bryn Forbes will continue to be an option in deeper leagues for his 3-point shooting if Green can't go.
Jan 12 - 6:39 PM

Danny Green (groin) won't play vs. the Lakers on Thursday.

Green was initially listed as 'questionable', which is encouraging, but he was ruled out well before tip-off tonight. Bryn Forbes should start again in his absence, with Brandon Paul filling out the rotation off the bench. Green's next chance to play comes Saturday at home vs. the Nuggets.
Jan 11 - 2:42 PM

Danny Green (groin) is being listed as questionable for Thursday's matchup with the Lakers.

Green has spent the past four games on the sidelines, and we haven't seen any reports of him ramping up his activities at practices, so we'd peg him closer to doubtful than questionable. If he's out again on Thursday, Bryn Forbes will get another chance to start with more minutes and there will be slightly more minutes available for Brandon Paul. Stay tuned.
Jan 10 - 5:09 PM

Danny Green (groin), Kawhi Leonard (shoulder) and Manu Ginobili (rest) will sit out Monday's game against the Kings.

This will be Green's fourth straight game on the sidelines and with all these guys unavailable, Bryn Forbes and Kyle Anderson could be forced into heavy minutes tonight, making them reasonable DFS targets with a favorable matchup in Sacramento. We haven't received another update on Green since Gregg Popovich's ominous quote suggesting he could be shut down for "a while," and with just late-round value on the year, he's not really worth rostering through this injury in most formats.

Danny Green (left groin tightness) will not play vs. Portland on Sunday.

No surprise here, since Green was listed as 'doubtful' and the Spurs tend to play it safe with injuries. His absence should result in another start for Bryn Forbes, with Kyle Anderson, Patty Mills and Brandon Paul also picking up extra minutes.
Jan 7 - 7:53 PM

Danny Green (tightness, left groin) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Blazers.

He's expected to be shut down for a while, so don't expect him back anytime soon. With him out, Bryn Forbes will look to build off his strong week while Dejounte Murray, Brandon Paul and Kyle Anderson also help out.
Jan 6 - 9:50 PM

Danny Green (left groin tightness) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Suns.

Gregg Popovich suggested on Tuesday that Green could be "shut down for a while," so it's not a surprise to see him ruled out a day in advance. The Spurs are extra cautious with injuries and until Green is fully recovered, his minutes will be absorbed by Bryn Forbes, Kyle Anderson and Brandon Paul.
Jan 4 - 6:10 PM

Danny Green (groin), Kawhi Leonard (rest) and Tony Parker (rest) will not play Wednesday against the 76ers.

While Leonard and Parker are simply receiving rest days as they work themselves back into things, Green is dealing with an actual injury and Gregg Popovich hinted after Tuesday's game that he could be "shut down for a while." With all these guys unavailable on Wednesday, Kyle Anderson, Bradon Paul and Bryn Forbes will all have the opportunity for some extended run. Green hasn't played well enough this season to warrant a hold through this injury.

Danny Green still isn't 100 percent according to Spurs coach Gregg Popovich and may be shut down for a while.

He didn't look right on Tuesday vs. the Knicks, playing just 14 minutes with zero points, two rebounds, two assists and one steal. Green also didn't play at all in the second half. It's safe to assume that we won't see him on Wednesday vs. Philly, opening the door for guys like Bryn Forbes and maybe Brandon Paul. Green can be dropped in most leagues and is coming off a rough December with just three games with double digit points.
Jan 2 - 10:23 PM

Danny Green scored six points with one rebound and two 3-pointers in 19 minutes against the Pistons on Saturday.

Coach Gregg Popovich mixed it up today and Green may have had a limit on his minutes. Green played just 22 and 23 minutes in his previous two games, so he's probably not going to be able to match his 27.4 minutes per game that he had before tonight. Kawhi Leonard returning also takes away from his upside, but Green is still a hold in deeper leagues.

Danny Green will play against the Pistons on Saturday.

He was called probable for this game as he deals with tightness and a groin injury. Green should be around 25-30 minutes in this game and he should be owned in deeper category leagues.
Sat, Dec 30, 2017 05:48:00 PM

Danny Green (tightness, left groin) is probable for Saturday against the Pistons.

He's likely going to be probable more often than not, but Green was effective on Thursday with 15 points. Expect him to be active with minutes in the 20s.
