Danny Green ended up with 17 points, six rebounds, four assists, four steals and two blocked shots across 35 minutes in Friday's 104-101 win against the Thunder.
Green hit 5-of-13 from behind the arc, and he has posted eight 3-pointers over his past two outings. He hasn't hit double digits in points in three consecutive outings at any point this season, but he'll look to change that in Monday's visit from the Hawks. He continues to help fantasy owners in the 3-pointers category, as well as steals and blocked shots. Nov 17 - 11:55 PM

Danny Green returned from his hamstring injury and played 27 minutes on Tuesday, but the results weren't great. He hit just 2-of-6 shots, missed all of his 3-pointers, and finished with four points, three rebounds, one assist, two steals and a block.

Green has shown signs of returning to form this season, but it looks like it's going to be a bumpy ride. In his last two games, he's hit 4-of-13 shots to average 4.5 points and zero 3-pointers, but in the two before that, he hit 14-of-25 shots and six 3-pointers to average 19 points. He's always going to be a cheap source of 3-pointers, steals and blocks, at least on most nights, but his ability to disappear into Gregg Popovich's magic hat make him a tough player to rely on.
Nov 14 - 11:50 PM

Coach Gregg Popovich said that Danny Green (hamstring) will play Tuesday vs. Dallas.

This was expected after Green practiced on Monday. With Green returning to the starting lineup, Bryn Forbes heads back to the bench. Brandon Paul will also see his minutes scaled back on Tuesday. Green is averaging 11.1 minutes, 3.7 rebounds and 1.8 3-pointers in 29.0 minutes per game this season.

Danny Green is hopeful to play on Tuesday vs. Dallas.

Green was "rested" on Saturday vs. the Bulls, but he later revealed that he has a tight hamstring. He downplayed the injury and was a full participant at Monday's light practice, but expect another update on Tuesday morning after shootaround. If Green sits out again, Bryn Forbes would be worth a look as a short-term play after scoring 13 points in 34 minutes vs. Chicago.
Nov 13 - 1:35 PM

Danny Green (rest) is out, Rudy Gay is 50/50, and Bryn Forbes will start for Green against the Bulls on Saturday.

It's a back-to-back set and Green will sit out at home. With him out, Forbes should get a huge opportunity while Patty Mills and Dejounte Murray could play next to each other. There should be a lot of value to be had in DFS here, especially with Forbes.
Nov 11 - 6:55 PM

Danny Green scored eight points with three rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one turnover in 30 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday.

He continues to handle the ball more and he's taking more two-point attempts, as well. Green has consistently played good minutes this season because of the Spurs needing to fill the void left by Kawhi Leonard (quad), so he may not be as reliable once Kawhi is back. Although, Green was an early-round player in nine-cat leagues just a few seasons ago, so maybe he keeps it going. He should be owned in standard leagues.
Nov 2 - 10:51 PM

Danny Green played 31 minutes on Monday, but hit just 2-of-7 shots (both 3-pointers) for seven points, two rebounds, one assist and one steal.

Here we go again. After teasing us with some strong lines to start the season, Green has been pretty quiet over the last three games. The minutes were there tonight and the Spurs struggled as a team in Boston, so if you recently picked up Green, just try to stay the course and hope that he turns his minutes into production soon.
Oct 30 - 10:08 PM

Danny Green scored three points with one rebound, two steals and five turnovers in 18 minutes against the Magic on Friday.

Anyone who has seen him play before this year knew he was not going to average 14.5 points per game with stats all over the place like he had before tonight. Green is still in an enhanced role because of the injuries to Kawhi Leonard (quad) and Tony Parker (quad), so he's still worth owning in standard leagues.
Oct 27 - 9:15 PM

Danny Green had a monster night vs. Toronto on Monday with 17 points, eight rebounds, three 3-pointers and five blocks in 34 minutes.

The five blocks matched his career-high. Green was a headache to own in the previous two seasons, but he was a top-24 player in 2014 with several nights like this. He's balling right now with averages of 14.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.0 steals, 2.3 blocks and 2.3 triples, but we all know he's just as likely to score 20 as he is finishing scoreless. Ride him while he's hot, but expect a dip in production when Kawhi Leonard (quad) eventually returns.
Oct 23 - 11:57 PM

Danny Green played 33 minutes on Wednesday, finishing the Spurs' season-opening victory with 17 points, four rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks.

Green made 7-of-16 shots, including three 3-pointers, and his level of offensive engagement was eye-opening. Kawhi Leonard (quad) was out tonight, of course, and the Spurs are taking it easy with Rudy Gay (24 minutes), but this is still a great sign for all of Green's owners. He's built for 9-cat.
Oct 19 - 2:58 AM

Danny Green scored a game-high 20 points during a 113-93 win over the Kings on Friday, adding three rebounds, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers in 22 minutes.

Like most roller coasters, the 2017-18 Danny Green coaster starts off very high, but we all know the G force on the way down can be enough to tweak your neck. He's failed to reach 40 percent from the field in each of the last two seasons while most of his other stats have trended down since his 2014-15 season. He would have nice value if he's anything close to that 2014-15 version, so taking him late in a nine-cat league isn't as scary as you think.
Oct 7 - 2:11 AM

The Cavs and Spurs have been in trade talks involving Danny Green, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.

The report adds the Spurs' asking price has been high, but the Cavs don't even have a GM right now. The Cavs really don't have much to offer here, so this isn't surprising to see these teams aren't close. Green could be on the move this summer as the Spurs look to open up some cap space to potentially bring in a star like Chris Paul. The Suns have also been mentioned as a possible inclusion in a three-team trade, according to Sam Amico.
Jun 22 - 5:13 PM

The Spurs are "open to trading" Danny Green, according to Jabari Young of the San Antonio Express-News.

Cap space is the name of the game here. The Spurs could be trying to open up some money to go after guys like Chris Paul or Kyle Lowry, so that explains this news -- the Rockets are in the same boat. This report does add nothing is close yet, though. Despite some inconsistency, Green should be considered as an asset by almost any team.
Jun 21 - 5:56 PM

Danny Green scored eight points with two rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Warriors in Sunday.

He continues to be locked on as a defender and he's even doing more ball-handling -- that may not be a good thing. Green hasn't really played poorly since the Memphis series, and that will have to continue in this series for the Spurs to have a chance with a hobbled Kawhi Leonard (ankle).
May 14 - 6:27 PM

Danny Green was clutch for the Spurs in Tuesday's Game 5 overtime win, scoring 16 points on 5-of-11 shooting.

He was absolutely incredible in overtime, scoring seven points in the final minute of the game which included a 3-pointer and a driving and-1 layup. Green also hit 7-of-8 free throws in 40 minutes, adding five rebounds, three assists and four 3-pointers. Green has a long history of making big shots in the playoffs and this was his 15th career playoff game with four or more 3-pointers -- only 13 other players in NBA history have accomplished that.
