Danny Green hit 7-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer for 15 points, one rebound, three assists, a career-high five steals and a block in Tuesday's big Game 3 win over the Heat.
Green has now scored 13, 9 and 15 points in each of the three Finals games, which is a vast improvement over what he did for much of the regular season. Much like last year's Finals, Green is waking up at the right time, and his steals and great shooting were a big reason the Spurs were able to build, and hold onto, a huge lead in tonight's game. Tim Duncan added 14 points and six rebounds, and Tony Parker added 15 points, four assists and two steals as the Spurs built a 25-point lead and were never in real danger of losing to the Heat in Game 3.

Danny Green got hot in the fourth quarter of Game 1's 110-95 win over the Heat on Thursday, finishing with 13 points, three rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

Just like it's been all season, Green can get hot or cold in an instant. He scored just two points in the first three quarters before his fourth-quarter outburst. The big story will be LeBron James missing most of the fourth, but the Spurs pulled away thanks mostly to Green. He set the record last June for the most 3-pointers in a single NBA Finals and will look to keep up his late momentum on Sunday in Game 2.

Danny Green was hot from deep during Wednesday's 112-77 blowout win vs. the Thunder, making seven 3-pointers for his 21 points with three boards, one assist and three steals in 28 minutes on just 11 shots.

He scored 16 points on seven shots in Game 1, so he's sporting an effective field goal percentage of 102.8 in this series. The Thunder can't defend the pick-and-roll while stopping the Spurs' shooters, which have been the two biggest issues in this series. Green has been on a roller coaster ride throughout the season, but he's getting hot at the right time.

Danny Green said that the Spurs "try to tire [the Blazers] out" by turning to their deep second unit.

"They don't have a lot of subs. Their bench is not that deep," Green said. "They're wearing down. The second quarter and the fourth quarter, it seems they run out of gas a little bit." The Spurs have nine players averaging at least 15 minutes in the postseason, compared to only six for Portland, and the absence of Mo Williams (groin) means an even heavier burden for the Blazers' starting five.

Danny Green did not score against the Mavericks on Sunday, adding five boards, one assist, two steals and two blocks in 24 minutes.

He only attempted two shots today and the Spurs didn't get him involved much. Green had a good season against the Mavericks on the year, making 3.0 triples per game on a pristine 78.6 effective field goal percentage in four games. He'll likely have his inconsistencies throughout the playoffs, but he's a good bet for a big game in this series.
Apr 20 - 3:48 PM

Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard, Patty Mills and Tiago Splitter have all been ruled out for the Spurs on Monday.

They'll start Tony Parker, Marco Belinelli, Damion James, Tim Duncan and Aaron Baynes. But just because Duncan and Manu Ginobili haven't been ruled out for this one, doesn't mean they're guaranteed big minutes.

Danny Green scored a career-high 33 points vs. the Suns during a 112-104 win on Friday, adding four boards, two assists, one block and seven 3-pointers.

He shot 12-of-17 from the field and is now 12-of-19 from deep in his last two games. Green was struggling to score the ball quite a bit earlier in the year, but he's put up sixth-round fantasy value in standard leagues since the break. He's a prime candidate to get some rest in one of the following two games, so his owners probably won't be counting on him beyond tonight.
Apr 12 - 2:02 AM

Danny Green played a team-high 36 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday, scoring 11 points with five boards, two assists and two 3-pointers.

It was just the sixth time he's played at least 36 minutes this season, which comes as a bit of a surprise on the second half of a back-to-back set. Green's foot injury is behind him, but he's far from immune to getting some rest for the remaining six games this season. He's worth owning in most leagues as long as you have the time to check your lineup when the Spurs inactives are announced.
Apr 3 - 11:25 PM

Updating an erroneous report, Danny Green will play Thursday vs. Oklahoma City.

A reporter misheard Gregg Popovich announcing his active players, which led to some initial confusion, but the only guys out for the Spurs are Manu Ginobili (rest), Austin Daye (arm), Aron Baynes (ribs) and Matt Bonner (calf).
Apr 3 - 7:02 PM

Danny Green (foot) reportedly will not play vs. the Thunder on Thursday.

He logged 27 minutes on Wednesday without any apparent setbacks, but Gregg Popovich said during Thursday's pre-game that Green won't be available. It's likely a precaution, rather than a true injury-related DNP, but we should get more details after the game.
Apr 3 - 6:45 PM

Danny Green (foot) played in Monday's road win over the Pacers, scoring just five points on 2-of-5 shooting (including a three) with two steals and one block in 19 minutes.

It's lines like this that make Green such a tantalizing player, but with a foot injury and the chance he gets Popped or disappears on any given night he's a tough player to start.
Mar 31 - 10:54 PM

Danny Green (foot) will start against the Pacers on Monday.

Last Monday he was expected to play, but coach Gregg Popovich stealth Popped him. Green's foot injury cost him two other games and he should be ready to go considering there was nothing structurally wrong and he just had some inflammation.
Mar 31 - 7:03 PM

Danny Green (foot) is "ready to go" for the Spurs on Monday, according to Gregg Popovich.

Green almost suited up on Saturday and he should be fine after getting a few extra days to rest, though it wouldn't be surprising to see Pop limit his playing time as a precaution. Marco Belinelli and Austin Daye will take the biggest hit as Green assumes his typical 25-minute role as a starter vs. the Pacers.
Mar 31 - 12:20 PM

Danny Green (foot) will not play vs. the Pelicans on Saturday.

Green went through some pre-game warmups but obviously didn't feel good enough to play, and the Spurs' cautious approach toward injuries wins out again. Marco Belinelli and Manu Ginobili stand to gain some minutes and Austin Daye may crack the rotation, especially if the score gets out of control, but Gregg Popovich's rotations make it hard to peg a clear winner.
Mar 29 - 6:57 PM

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

The Nuggets are going to be extremely shorthanded tonight, so there may be some more inactive players on the way in the first game of a back-to-back set. As for Green there is nothing structurally wrong with his foot and the team might be just playing it safe. The last time Green sat out, Austin Daye exploded for 22 points and he could be a big part of the rotation again. Of course, counting on Daye has always been risky business.
