Danny Green filled the stat sheet against the Hornets during a 95-86 win on Wednesday, scoring 16 points with five rebounds, two assists, two steals, three blocks and four 3-pointers.
He was coming in off two horrible games, averaging just 5.0 points, 2.0 boards, 2.5 dimes and 1.0 triples on 20.0 percent from the field. Green has been an early-round guy on the season and it would appear his floor is a mid-round guy. His owners have nothing to worry about, but they knew that just by reading his stat line tonight.

Danny Green is in the midst of a major shooting slump, but a lot of that has to do with the fact that he has seen an increased workload this season.

"Some days the energy is there," said Green. "Some days, you’re fighting to find it." He is averaging a career-high 30.1 minutes per game, and currently leads the Spurs in minutes played so far this season. Over his last four games, he has made just 8-of-33 shots, including 6-of-21 from 3-point range. He should be able to turn things around soon, but knowing coach Gregg Popovich it's very possible that Green misses a game or two down the stretch in order to keep him fresh for playoffs.

Danny Green couldn't break out of his cold spell against the Bucks on Sunday, scoring just three points on 1-of-9 shooting while adding two boards, three assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.

He has now failed to score in double digits for the fourth game in a row, and it's obvious that he is losing confidence quickly. Green was in the midst of an incredible season prior to this slump, so his owners should hold onto him in the hope that he turns it around soon.
Jan 25 - 10:37 PM

Danny Green had a quiet game vs. the Nuggets, scoring six points on 2-of-12 shooting with two 3-pointers, two rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block.

The pair of 3s and defensive stats prop up the line for fantasy purposes, which isn't uncommon for the six-year veteran. He's notching 12.7 points, 2.5 threes, 4.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.1 blocks this season, and the return of Kawhi Leonard may actually help him in the long run -- he's shooting 50.0 percent with Kawhi alongside him this season, but just 41.7 percent when Kawhi isn't on the court.

Danny Green was fantastic against the Blazers on Friday, making 6-of-8 from the field for 19 points with five rebounds, two assists, two steals and four 3-pointers.

That's good for a 100.0 effective field goal percentage and Green is just rolling this season. He was putting up big numbers while the Spurs were somewhat healthy back in November, so his performance over the past month was no aberration.
Jan 17 - 12:53 AM

Danny Green scored 20 points on 6-of-13 shooting (4-of-7 from deep, 4-of-4 from the line) with four rebounds, two steals and two blocks in the Spurs' 100-95 win over the Suns on Friday.

Green is a top 20-40 play (9/8 cat) this year and owners shouldn't rule out the idea that he can keep it up.
Jan 10 - 2:59 AM

Danny Green quietly filled up the stat sheet on Tuesday with 13 points, three 3-pointers, six rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and zero turnovers in 33 minutes.

Green has been struggling offensively over the past few weeks, shooting 36.8 percent from the field and 66.7 percent at the FT line in the Spurs' previous eight games. He made 5-of-10 FGs tonight in a true 9-cat gem, and this is a timely reminder of his understated fantasy value.
Jan 6 - 11:22 PM

Danny Green hit just 3-of-13 shots and missed all eight of his 3-point attempts for seven points, but also had nine rebounds, three assists and a crucial block in overtime on Wednesday.

His blocked shot from behind Tyreke Evans, and subsequent rebound, basically sealed the win for the Spurs, but Green's shot is broken right now. He's hit just 6-of-24 over his last two games, which includes 1-of-14 from downtown. Look for him to bounce back on Saturday, assuming Gregg Popovich doesn't give him the day off against the Wizards.

Danny Green had a sub-par night vs. the Grizzlies, going 3-of-11 from the field to finish with seven points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal and three blocks in just 24 minutes of action.

This isn't even a bad line vs. an elite defense, and it comes on the heels of a terrific game of 24 points, three 3-pointers, four rebounds, three assists and five steals on Sunday. Green is averaging only 31.6 minutes per game, yet he's a must-start player in all fantasy formats.
Tue, Dec 30, 2014 11:06:00 PM

Danny Green's terrific season continued with 24 points (6-of-13 FGs, 9-of-10 FTs), three 3-pointers, four boards, three assists and five steals in Sunday's 110-106 win vs. the Rockets.

Green joins Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook as the only players averaging top-20 fantasy value (9-cat) in under 32 minutes per game, and we can't emphasize enough how undervalued he's been in fantasy leagues this season. There's no reason to expect a drop-off as the Spurs try to claw their way up from seventh place in the Western Conference.
Sun, Dec 28, 2014 10:08:00 PM

Danny Green shot 4-of-13 from the field (2-of-5 from the line) for 12 points during the Spurs' Christmas Day loss to the Thunder, adding two rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block, and two turnovers.

Green's all-around production is what makes him an elite option, so even when he struggles to score, he's still capable of providing quality statistics in other areas. He had a difficult matchup vs. the Thunder tonight, but he'll likely bounce-back on Friday in what will be a favorable matchup vs. the Pelicans. Keep rolling him out there.

Danny Green played 29 minutes against the Clippers on Monday with 11 points, one rebound, five assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers.

He was extremely quiet in the first half, but turned it on late with a huge corner 3-pointer to help ice this one. Green is putting up first-round value on the season, but he'll eventually slow down. Also, the next time he isn't in the starting lineup, it should raise a red flag.
Tue, Dec 23, 2014 12:53:00 AM

Danny Green and Tiago Splitter have been benched for Saturday's game against the Mavericks.

He was not listed in the starting lineup and coach Gregg Popovich just kept them on the bench. Green has played magnificent basketball and certainly deserved the night off. He's been the biggest steal of fantasy drafts and should get it going on Monday against the Clippers.

Danny Green will come off of the bench on Saturday vs. Dallas.

There is nothing to worry about here, as coach Gregg Popovich is likely doing this to reduce Green's workload after playing 44 minutes on Friday. Marco Belinelli will draw the start, and is a sneaky plug-and-play option. Green's owners should temper their expectations for this contest, as we don't see him playing too many minutes Saturday.
Sat, Dec 20, 2014 07:31:00 PM

Danny Green scored 27 points on 9-of-21 shooting (including six threes) with 10 rebounds and one steal over 44 minutes in Friday's triple-overtime loss to the Blazers.

Green is returning top 15-25 value (9/8 cat) and while he's getting heavy run this week with the absences and overtime games, his production isn't the outlier that many believe it to be. The real difference in his value lies in the increase in trust and minutes that Gregg Popovich has been willing to give him this season, and it would be pretty surprising if he's not a top-40 play at the end of the year.
