Danny Green (foot) was seen limping in the Spurs' locker room after Wednesday's triple-overtime loss to the Spurs.

Green took a hard foul towards the end of the first overtime, but the injury doesn't seem serious as he hasn't popped up on the injury report yet. We'll keep an eye on this one and Marco Belinelli, Manu Ginobili, and Kyle Anderson would see an uptick in fantasy value if Green misses any time. Green scored a season-high 25 points in Wednesday's loss and is worth an add in standard fantasy leagues due to his recent strong play.

Danny Green had one of the most unique stat lines in NBA history on Wednesday during a triple-overtime loss to Memphis, scoring a season-high 25 points with seven rebounds, three assists, two steals, five blocks and seven 3-pointers in 52 minutes.

He became the first player in NBA history to make seven triples and block five shots in a game. Unlike last year, Green is seeing consistent minutes and it's led to him flirting with first-round value on the season. He's not going to be this great, but he's absolutely going to smash his ADP.

Danny Green cooled off on Sunday, scoring five points on 2-of-7 shooting with one 3-pointer, six rebounds, three assists and two steals.

The supporting stats are the key to Green's value, as his across-the-board production has vaulted him into elite fantasy territory through the Spurs' first 24 games. The 27-year-old swingman isn't prone to as many DNP-CDs as his veteran teammates, and he is the only player in the NBA averaging at least 2.3 three-pointers, 1.3 steals and 1.2 blocks.
Dec 14 - 11:07 PM

Danny Green hit five threes and finished with 19 points, four rebounds, three steals and one block in Friday's loss to the Lakers.

Green still gets yelled at by Pop a lot but he has slowly gained his trust, returning second-to-third round value for owners in the process.
Dec 13 - 4:03 AM

Danny Green caught fire late on Wednesday and sent the game to overtime after the Spurs struggled for most of the night. He finished with 20 points, 10 rebounds, two steals, three blocks and six 3-pointers on 7-of-14 shooting.

Green's as hot-and-cold as they come and has scored 20, 5, 18, 11 and 2 points in each of his last five games, averaging 11.2 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.8 steals, 1.8 blocks and 2.8 3-pointers. The inconsistent scoring is a buzzkill, but those steals, blocks, threes and rebounds mean he should be in your lineup any time he's playing.
Dec 3 - 11:55 PM

Danny Green had a disappointing game on Monday against the 76ers with five points, four boards, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

He made just 1-of-9 from the field and couldn't knock down open shots -- he had a lot of them. This is nothing new for Green, but he's been an early-round asset so far this season. Keep him active in standard leagues.
Dec 1 - 10:38 PM

Danny Green led the Spurs in scoring on Sunday with 18 points (four 3-pointers) to go with six rebounds, three assists, three steals, and one block over 35 minutes of action.

Green's numbers aren't going to jump off the page, but his ability to offer across-the-board production without hurting you in any one area is an often over-looked aspect in fantasy sports. He's averaging 10.6 points, 2.1 three-pointers, 3.7 rebounds, 1.1 steals, and 1.4 blocks per game, good enough for top-50 value.
Nov 30 - 4:23 PM

Danny Green scored 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting (including three treys) with three rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in Friday's win.

Green is a top 30-45 play this season and is a must-start player until further notice. His playing time is up about five mpg over last season (24.3) and he's hitting 2.5 percent more looks, too. Don't worry about the peaks and valleys unless he varies extremely far off his current path.
Nov 29 - 2:41 AM

Danny Green cooled off on Wednesday, hitting just 1-of-4 shots for two points, five rebounds, three assists, a steal and three blocks in 29 minutes.

Green was cooking coming in and had scored 21 and 18 points in his previous two games, but Manu Ginobili decided to return to form tonight with 28 points, leaving Green in his wake. Green should bounce back sooner than later, but a healthy and confident Ginobili is not great news for Green's owners. He did at least salvage his line tonight with the blocks and steal.
Nov 27 - 2:26 AM

Danny Green kept his momentum going on Saturday against the Nets with 21 points, seven rebounds, two assists, three blocks and five 3-pointers.

That's good for a 105.0 effective field goal percentage. Green is money in fantasy leagues and he has seven blocks in his last two games. There's no reason why he should be on any waiver wires.
Nov 23 - 1:50 AM

Danny Green filled the stat sheet against the Wolves on Friday with 18 points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal, four blocks and four 3-pointers during a 121-92 win.

He made 6-of-9 from the field and both free throws for one of the biggest stat lines of the night. Fantasy owners tend to focus on points too much, but Green has put up top-60 value on the season. He's worth owning in all standard formats.
Nov 22 - 12:04 AM

Danny Green filled the stat sheet against the 76ers on Monday with 11 points, two rebounds, four assists, one steal, three blocks and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

Like most Spurs, he's capable of putting up very useful fantasy lines without much scoring output. Green is worth owning in standard leagues.
Nov 18 - 1:32 AM

Danny Green hit just 1-of-5 shots for two points, four rebounds and one steal in 25 minutes on Monday.

We wish we didn't have to blurb every off-night for Green but owners regularly look to jump ship when it happens. He's still a top-100 player after tonight, so owners can cut him some slack and hope he bounces back in the next one.
Nov 11 - 1:46 AM

Danny Green turned in a well-rounded stat line against the Pelicans on Saturday with 16 points, four rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

He didn't turn the ball over, made 5-of-8 from the field and all three free throws to give him a nine-category line tonight. Green has burned a lot of fantasy owners with his duds, but his body of work still makes him a player you certainly consider in standard leagues.
