Danny Green started and played 25 minutes, but missed all three of his shots and finished Monday's Game-2 loss with zero points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block.
Dejounte Murray was nearly just as disappointing with four points, zero assists and two steals in 13 minutes, and the postseason Spurs look a lot like the regular-season Spurs. All of them are impossible to trust except for LaMarcus Aldridge. Apr 17 - 1:29 AM

Danny Green struggled with his shot in Tuesday's loss to the Clippers, going 2-of-8 from the field and 1-of-2 from the stripe on his way to five points in 30 minutes.

While Green didn't have it going offensively, he still came through with five rebounds, four assists, two steals, two swats and three turnovers, and he also had a rare bouncy moment early in the game, throwing down a ferocious dunk on DeAndre Jordan (link below). The defensive stats are what drive Green's value, and the same goes for Kyle Anderson, who finished with seven points, six boards, two assists, four blocks and one turnover in 29 minutes.
Apr 4 - 2:14 AM

Danny Green scored 12 points on 3-of-11 shooting on Sunday, to go with two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, two steals, two blocks and one turnover through 30 minutes as a starter.

Green got off to a rough start in this one, going 1-of-7 from the field through the first half of action, but his solid defense helped him stay on the floor and he came through with some big plays down the stretch for the Spurs. He’s inconsistent, but there’s nothing wrong with owning him as a shot blocking and 3-point specialist in deep leagues. Patty Mills finished with 14 points, three triples, five boards and four assists in 37 minutes, and he's also worth owning as a 3-point specialist.
Apr 1 - 6:33 PM

Danny Green will head back into the Spurs' starting lineup on Sunday, with Pau Gasol heading to the bench.

The Spurs went bigger vs. the Thunder on Thursday, but will revert to their smaller lineup with LaMarcus Aldridge at center vs. the Rockets. Green's minutes tend to hover in the mid-20s no matter where he begins the game.
Apr 1 - 3:11 PM

Danny Green scored 11 points on 4-of-9 shooting on Thursday, adding three 3-pointers, four rebounds and one block in 27 minutes off the bench.

Green was replaced by Pau Gasol in the starting five in what was likely a matchup-based moved against OKC, although his minutes weren’t really affected all that much and he still came through with the triples and swats without recording a single turnover. He’s an okay low-end guy to own in deep leagues, but Green is far too inconsistent to depend on in 12-team leagues with just 13 roster spots.
Mar 29 - 11:18 PM

Danny Green scored 13 points on 4-of-11 shooting Sunday, to go with three 3-pointers, six rebounds, two assists, one block and three turnovers in 28 minutes.

This was the good version of Green, but more often than not, he’s little more than a 3-point and swats specialist. Over the past few weeks, Green has put forth averages of 8.5 points, 1.9 triples, 1.4 assists and 1.9 blocks per contest on 32.4% shooting. He’s not worth the headache in most settings.
Mar 25 - 6:45 PM

Danny Green blocked a career-high six shots on Thursday, adding five points, seven rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes of action.

To put this in perspective, Green's blocks-fest was the most by a Spurs guard since George Gervin in 1977. He shot just 2-of-11 from the field tonight but didn't have any turnovers, and contributed to enough categories that the blocks weren't on an island. This random outburst isn't enough for most owners to change their view of him, however, as he came in averaging just 18.8 minutes in the Spurs' past four games.
Mar 15 - 11:46 PM

Danny Green said he will embrace his role off the bench if it sticks.

"It was a little different mindset," Green said. "I’m going to take it in a positive light. I’m going to come in and do my job and try to bring energy and try to win games." He'll still have a nice role as long as Kawhi Leonard (quad) is out and is a great source of money stats, as he averaged 1.4 steals, 1.0 blocks and 2.8 triples in February.
Mar 1 - 10:26 AM

Danny Green shifted to the starting lineup after halftime on Wednesday, finishing with eight points on 3-of-8 shooting, five rebounds, two steals, two 3-pointers and zero turnovers in 27 minutes.

Davis Bertans headed to the bench as a consequence, but there's a lot up in the air for San Antonio right now. In addition to Kawhi Leonard's vague goal of returning in March, Pau Gasol is dealing with a bone bruise in his knee, and LaMarcus Aldridge went down with a sprained ankle tonight. Green isn't very appealing in most points leagues, but he's been a stealthy top-60 roto option over the past month.
Mar 1 - 1:15 AM

Danny Green returned to action on Sunday with 22 points, three rebounds, one steal and one block in 23 minutes, making 6-of-11 FGs and 5-of-6 FTs.

Green tied his season-high with five 3-pointers and he fell just shy of his high for scoring (24 points on Nov. 7). This was his first game as a reserve since 2014 and the early results were encouraging -- with Kawhi Leonard (quad) out indefinitely, he could still carve out 24-26 minutes if he sticks in a bench role. He's still just a fringe option better suited to roto leagues.
Feb 25 - 6:53 PM

Danny Green (illness) will play Sunday vs. the Cavs.

Green sat out Friday's game with the illness, but he was never listed on the injury report today and always expected to get back out there. He'll likely start, which will shift Patty Mills back to the second unit.
Feb 25 - 2:53 PM

Danny Green (illness) is not on the injury report for Sunday against the Cavs.

That should mean he's OK to play after he had some bad spaghetti to keep him out of action on Friday. He'll likely be in the starting lineup.
Feb 24 - 4:08 PM

Danny Green (illness) will not play against the Nuggets on Friday.

He reportedly had bad spaghetti to cause food poisoning, so this makes it the second noteworthy food issue for the Spurs -- Kawhi Leonard was sick from a Philly cheesesteak years ago. With him out, it'll be a team effort from the guards with Bryn Forbes, Patty Mills, Derrick White and Manu Ginobili playing more.
Feb 23 - 8:07 PM

Danny Green (illness) is sick and is uncertain to play on Friday against the Nuggets.

The Spurs would probably hold him out here, which means we should see more Bryn Forbes, Patty Mills, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili could be playing more. We should have an update shortly.
Feb 23 - 7:42 PM

Danny Green hit 4-of-9 shots and three 3-pointers for 13 points, five rebounds and two blocks in 30 minutes of Monday's loss to the Jazz.

Green hit a big 3-pointer to give the Spurs a late lead, but Donovan Mitchell stole the ball from Manu Ginobili and the Spurs totally botched their final possession, as Kyle Anderson couldn't figure out what to do with the ball. Ginobili almost hit a circus shot to win it while falling out of bounds, but it didn't go in. Green had just four points in 22 minutes on Saturday and tends to follow good games with bad ones, which is why he's likely available in your league.
