Danny Green sank three 3-pointers during Friday's win over the Nuggets, but added just nine points, four boards, one steal and two turnovers through 27 minutes.
Green has now hit multiple 3-pointers in his previous three outings, but he hasn't brought much else to the stat sheet during that span with averages of just 11.0 points, 5.3 boards, 0.7 steals and 0.3 blocks per game. The talent is there, and the minutes have been consistent, so owners are going to just need to stay patient and hope that the defensive stats start coming. For what it's worth, Green has been at least a mid-round asset since the 2012-13 season, so it doesn't seem likely he'll be this bad for the entire year. Nov 28 - 1:03 AM

Danny Green scored 18 points during a win over the Suns on Monday, adding six rebounds, four assists and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

Here we go. In his last five, Green averaged 10.6 points, 4.2 boards, 3.0 assists, 0.6 blocks, 0.2 steals and 2.2 treys on 40.8 percent from the field. The treys are coming around, but Green just hasn't been getting the defensive stats for some reason. Green still has just 15th-round value on the year, so his owners are still hot little potatoes right now. He should be trending up soon and is not at risk of losing his playing time. Keep him owned in all standard leagues.

Danny Green matched a season-high eight rebounds against the Pelicans on Friday with six points, three assists, one block and two 3-pointers.

He's finally starting to come around here. In his last five Green has made 45.5 percent from deep with averages of 8.0 points, 4.2 boards, 0.6 blocks and 2.0 treys. He's still been garbage on two-point shots and has no steals, so he's not "back" yet. His minutes are still there and he's still a buy-low player.

Danny Green matched his season-high 12 points on Monday with one rebound, two assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Blazers on Monday.

It's a start. Green has been in a season-long slump, but he's starting to show signs of life. Green is not in jeopardy of losing his minutes and he could have one of his stat-stuffing games any day now. If you can buy low in the next few days, do it.

Danny Green made 1-of-9 from the field for three points during a 92-83 win over the 76ers on Saturday, adding five rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer.

What is going on here? Green has been open for almost 60 percent of his shots -- similar to last year -- and he just can't make them right now. On the season, he's averaging just 6.6 points, 4.3 boards, 2.2 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.7 blocks and 1.2 treys on 30.4 percent from the field. Once the shot starts dropping, he'll be a top-50 guy in standard leagues.
Nov 14 - 11:54 PM

Danny Green had his best shooting game against the Blazers on Wednesday with 11 points, four rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers on 4-of-6 from the field.

Hopefully this is a sign of things to come. Green was making just 22 percent from deep before tonight, which is shocking for a career 42 percent shooter from there. There may still be a buy-low window for a guy who has almost no threat to his role as the floor-spacing shooting guard in the first unit.
Nov 12 - 2:15 AM

Danny Green couldn't break out of his slump on Saturday vs. the Kings, scoring just five points on 2-of-6 shooting in 27 minutes.

He added four assists, one board, two blocks and one 3-pointer, but he was shooting just 29.2 percent from the field prior to tonight's game and you have to wonder how low his confidence is right now. Green has gone on cold streaks before, but he is way too talented to not turn things around and the Spurs are going to have to ride him down the stretch. He is one of the best buy-low targets out there at the moment.
Nov 10 - 12:41 AM

Danny Green scored eight points on 2-of-7 from the field against the Hornets on Saturday, adding three rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

Yes, the scoring line is ugly, but he still added a combined four steals, blocks and treys. Green has been too good in the past two seasons and he's been one of the best shooters in the NBA in that span, too. He's a prime buy-low target.
Nov 8 - 4:04 AM

Danny Green remained bottled up in Monday's game against the Knicks, scoring just four points on 2-of-6 shooting with five rebounds and one block in 27 minutes.

This is typical Danny Green and if you bench him before his inevitable explosion you're doing it wrong.
Nov 2 - 10:18 PM

Danny Green's early season struggles continued on Sunday, as he hit just 2-of-10 shots on his way to four points, six boards, one assist, four steals and one block through 29 minutes of action.

Green's early season struggles might have his current owners pushing the panic button, which is why now would be a good time to float out some buy-low offers for the guy who finished the 2014-15 season as a top-25 asset in standard 9-cat leagues. His shot isn't dropping, but the defensive stats and minutes are encouraging. He also doesn't have anyone behind him in the rotation to truly challenge him for the starting gig, so we're not worried about San Antonio starting two-guard and floor spacer.
Nov 1 - 7:00 PM

Danny Green scored eight points with four rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes on Friday.

He's not going to blow you away most nights and he's off to a slow start with his four-point opener. Chances are the person who drafted Green is well aware of how he was a second-round player in standard leagues last year, but feel free to try and buy low. Green is still one of the best shooting guards to own in fantasy.
Oct 31 - 2:20 AM

Danny Green missed the mark on Wednesday, going 0-of-5 from deep and 2-of-9 overall to finish with four points, eight rebounds, two assists and one steal.

Green will have occasional duds, but his subtle across-the-board contributions assure that he's almost never a complete flop. Don't sweat the occasional off-game from Green, who finished last season as a top-45 player in 8-cat (and considerably higher in 9-cat).
Oct 29 - 1:17 AM

Danny Green was on fire during a 111-86 win over the Rockets on Friday, scoring 19 points on 6-of-8 from the field with five rebounds and six 3-pointers in just 18 minutes.

He has less pressure behind him with Marco Belinelli in Sacramento and his minutes should be a little safer this season. Green put up second-round value in nine-category leagues last year and may even be able to increase his minutes from 28.5 last year. He's a nice target in the fourth round of a standard league, but isn't nearly as valuable in points leagues.
Oct 24 - 1:02 AM

Danny Green admitted that the Spurs first unit is working on improving their chemistry.

Typically a throwaway line from training camp, this is notable since the Spurs have enjoyed so much continuity in the past. "The second unit, they’re a little more ahead of the game because they’re catching onto the system quicker," he said. The most notable adjustment is the arrival of LaMarcus Aldridge, but don't discount Kawhi Leonard getting more involved, either. One way or another, we have a feeling the Spurs will be just fine.
Oct 12 - 9:42 AM

Danny Green's left hand is a little sore after he landed on it awkwardly during Thursday's game vs. the Kings.

"These are the days we have to take care of our bodies and get back out there as soon as possible," Green said. "Have to be like Wolverine and heal quick." Green also got his fingers tangles in an opponent's jersey which bent his fingers back, but he said that he should be fine for Monday's game and that he won't need an MRI. Green is a fantasy stud and should have more responsibility this season with Manu Ginobili another year older, so he is a solid pick in the early stages of the middle rounds.
