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.

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.
Apr 12 - 11:37 PM

Danny Green returned from a rest day to post two points on 1-of-7 shooting, with two rebounds, two assists, one steal and four turnovers.

Green missed all six of his 3-pointers, most of them open, and the Spurs' offense was a combined 3-of-17 from deep. The loss marred an otherwise perfect home record for the Spurs this season, dropping them to 39-1 with one more home game looming vs. the Mavs on Wednesday.
Apr 10 - 9:40 PM

Danny Green is expected to play on Sunday vs. the Warriors.

He rested along with several other starters on Friday vs. the Nuggets, but the Spurs are expected to be at full strength tonight except for Boris Diaw (right adductor). Green has been inconsistent all season and is averaging 7.5 points, 4.0 boards, 0.8 assists, 1.0 blocks, 1.8 steals and 2.0 3-pointers over his last four games.

Danny Green (rest) will not play on Friday vs. the Nuggets.

The Spurs are resting Kawhi Leonard, Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker and LaMarcus Aldridge, so Jonathon Simmons and Kevin Martin will likely have to step up the most in Green's absence. Green should be back for Sunday's game vs. the Warriors.
Apr 8 - 1:58 PM

Danny Green scored nine points with five rebounds, one assist, four steals and three 3-pointers against the Warriors on Thursday.

He is likely going to rest on Friday. Expect Kevin Martin and Jonathon Simmons to pick up Green's minutes.
Apr 8 - 1:35 AM

Danny Green (rest) returned from a one-game absence on Saturday vs. the Thunder, but he was terrible with just two points on 1-of-6 shooting.

You would think that Green would step up with Tony Parker (rest), Tim Duncan (rest), LaMarcus Aldridge (rest) and Kawhi Leonard (quad) all out, but this sums up Green's season. He added just two boards, two assists and one steal in 22 minutes and his owners will probably be pretty eager to drop him after this nightmare performance.
Mar 26 - 11:09 PM

Danny Green will start on Saturday against the Thunder.

He should be ready to go after a night off. Green has a big chance tonight, but start him at your own risk.
Mar 26 - 6:44 PM

Danny Green, Boris Diaw and Patty Mills will all be rested for Friday's game against the Grizzlies.

Kawhi Leonard (quad) will also be unavailable, and with all those guys on the sidelines, Kevin Martin could see some decent burn and would be someone to consider as a punt play in DFS. Manu Ginobili, Kyle Anderson and Jonathon Simmons also figure to see an uptick in minutes, while LaMarcus Aldridge will do the heavy lifting on offense.
