Danny Green (thigh) said that he's hopeful to beat his three-week timetable.
"I hope to come back sooner than expected," Green said. "You have to stay positive." Coach Gregg Popovich confirmed that he's dealing with the same injury that he picked up at the beginning of camp, so we'd expect the Spurs to hold him out for the full three weeks to be safe. The Spurs started versatile forward Kyle Anderson in Green's place on Friday, but keep in mind that Jonathon Simmons (calf) wasn't available. Oct 22 - 9:46 AM

Danny Green (thigh) has been diagnosed with a left quad strain and is expected to be out approximately three weeks.

It was originally thought to be just a bruise, but now there is a strain of the muscle on Green's left leg. It's going to be tough to replace Green's 26.1 minutes per game, but Kyle Anderson figures to be the next man up along with Jonathon Simmons (calf). Green is only a last-round pick with this injury news.

Coach Gregg Popovich said Danny Green (thigh) could miss "weeks" with his thigh bruise.

His left quad has been nagging him since September, but he was playing through it earlier this month. Green has been out of action since Oct. 14 with what looked like a minor injury, but now he's in jeopardy of missing time. If Green is out, Kyle Anderson could benefit most while we see more of Patty Mills, as well.
Oct 21 - 7:02 PM

Danny Green (left quad) played in his third straight preseason game on Wednesday, going scoreless on 0-of-3 shooting in 12 minutes.

Green hasn't played more than 16 minutes this preseason but he's been a full participant at practice, and we've taken him off the injury report. His shooting is under a microscope after last year's career-worst performance, but the sample size is too small to draw conclusions based on the preseason. You could do far worse with a late-round pick.
Oct 12 - 9:43 PM

Danny Green (left quad) went through a full practice on Wednesday.

That makes him probable to play on Saturday against the Hawks. Green had a disappointing year last season due to missing an inordinate amount of open treys. He's a nice bounce-back candidate at a bargain of a price late in drafts.
Oct 5 - 2:27 PM

Danny Green (left quad contusion) got on the court for a post-practice shooting session on Wednesday, although he's still yet to work out with the team.

Green is nursing a left quad injury, and while it's not believed to be serious, he likely won't take the court until he's 100 percent healthy. Green likely earned himself a spot on many fantasy GM's "never again" lists after a horrendous 2015-16 campaign, but let's not forget that he was a steady mid-round producer from the 2012 season all the way through 2015. He's someone to consider targeting towards the later rounds as a potential bounce-back candidate.

Danny Green is dealing with a left quad contusion.

He suffered the injury during a workout last week and sat out of the first day of training camp (Tuesday). The injury doesn't sound serious, but Green is expected to miss a few days of action. For what it's worth, he was able to put up some 3-pointers at practice, so the Spurs are likely just being cautious. Green had Lasik eye surgery over the offseason and is hoping to bounce back after a rough 2015-16 season. He's a nice target at his discounted price in the later rounds.
Sep 28 - 12:15 AM

Danny Green recently had Lasik eye surgery.

Green shot a career-low 37.6 percent this season, including 33.2 percent beyond the arc, a disappointing result for the Spurs' purported marksman. Plenty of NBA players have undergone the procedure and improved vision can only help Green to bounce back in 2016-17 -- he'll be an intriguing fantasy target since he's likely to fall into the late rounds.
May 18 - 9:48 PM

Danny Green hit six 3-pointers in Tuesday's Game 5 loss, finishing with 20 points, three boards, one assist, two steals and one block in 29 minutes.

He was scoreless in 28 minutes in Game 4, so of course he went off tonight. Consistency has been Green's biggest weakness all season and that hasn't changed in the playoffs. On a side note, Green now has five games in his career with six or more 3-pointers, trailing only Stephen Curry (12), Ray Allen (10), Reggie Miller (6) and Klay Thompson (6).
May 10 - 11:37 PM

Danny Green vanished in 28 minutes on Sunday, going scoreless on 0-of-3 shooting with five rebounds, two steals and one assist.

Green also picked up five fouls during his limited time on the court, but his inability to get going from the perimeter wasn't isolated -- the Thunder chased San Antonio off the 3-point line all night, limiting the Spurs to a 2-of-12 mark from downtown. Green is still shooting 50.0 percent from downtown in the playoffs, and he should fare better in the friendly confines of the AT&T Center on Tuesday.
May 8 - 10:53 PM

Danny Green caught fire in a win over the Thunder on Saturday, making 6-of-7 from the field for 18 points with four rebounds, one assist, one steal, three blocks and five 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

Where was this all season? Green's efficiency was an unbelievable 121.4 effective field goal percentage while playing some terrific defense on the other end during the easy win. Perhaps no player turned in more duds than Green in the regular season, so we'd like to see it again. Congrats to those who started him in DFS tonight.
Apr 30 - 10:56 PM

Danny Green scored two points (1-of-3 FGs) with two boards and one steal in 18 minutes vs. the Grizzlies on Sunday.

He had a nice steal which led to a dunk in transition, but that was it. Green looked solid in Game 3 with 11 points, four boards, three blocks, one steal and three treys, but he was held to single-digit points in both Game 1 and Game 2. Just like the regular season, Green will continue to be a volatile fantasy option due to his inconsistency.
Apr 24 - 3:54 PM

Danny Green scored 12 points on 5-of-11 shooting on Wednesday, making two 3-pointers with three assists, two rebounds, one steal and zero turnovers in 27 minutes.

Green avoided a DNP-CD tonight, possibly because exhaustion isn't a big concern for a 28 year old who averaged just 26.1 minutes this season. Green's fantasy value tumbled with a low usage rate and lousy 37.5 percent shooting -- he'll need to knock down his open shots for the Spurs to storm back to the NBA Finals.
Apr 14 - 12:32 AM

Danny Green is expected to play Wednesday vs. the Mavs.

Green will see some increased opportunity tonight with Tony Parker, LaMarcus Aldridge, Kawhi Leonard, David West, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili all set to sit out San Antonio's regular-season finale, but as we've seen in the past, that doesn't always translate to production for Green who needs people to set him up for his shots. He's not all that great of a DFS target tonight.
Apr 13 - 1:53 PM

Danny Green scored six points on 2-of-4 shooting vs. the Thunder on Tuesday, and he's expected to be rested on Wednesday vs. Dallas.

He didn't play great tonight and the Spurs will give their starters a night off to make sure they're fresh for the postseason. Green added four boards, one assist, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes. Expect Manu Ginobili, Jonathon Simmons and Kevin Martin to see an uptick in minutes Wednesday.
