Draymond Green was key in the win over the Rockets on Friday, scoring 15 points with eight rebounds, seven assists, one steal, three blocks and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes.
The Dubs get all the credit for their offense, but their defense was a big reason why they won this game. Green actually only played eight minutes at the five in this game, which is somewhat surprising with how the Rockets count on perimeter scoring so much. Despite a three percent dip in usage and a four percent dip in true shooting percentage, Green is still a first-round value in standard leagues. It's not all about scoring, you guys.

Draymond Green triple-doubled in an easy 126-91 win over the Cavaliers on Monday, scoring 11 points with 13 rebounds and 11 assists.

This was his third triple-double of the season and the 17th of his career. Green was incredible on the defensive end, racking up one steal and matching his career-high with five blocks. He didn't have a single turnover in 35 minutes and finished 4-of-6 from the field and 3-of-4 from the stripe in one of his best lines of the season. The Warriors will go for their fifth straight win on Wednesday vs. the Thunder.

Draymond Green missed all four of his shots and scored just two points on Thursday, but also had nine rebounds, 13 assists and two blocks in 30 minutes of Thursday's blowout win over the Suns.

The bottom line is that Dray simply doesn't need to score on this team and he tied his season low with two points tonight. But he can also score when necessary and was averaging 10.9 points, 8.5 rebounds, 7.5 assists, 2.1 steals, 1.2 blocks and 1.1 3-pointers per game coming into this one. That's awfully close to triple-double territory, which is why he's still one of the top players in fantasy despite not being much of a scorer on a stacked team.

In an interview with USA Today, Draymond Green says the Warriors are now willing to experiment quite a bit more during the regular season.

"Last year we were trying to win every single game every night. This year we’re trying more things out, we’re trying different combinations, we’re playing more guys trying to figure out what works," said Green. "It’s been experimenting with lineups, experimenting with substitutions patterns. It’s been experimenting with plays." There have been some minor bumps in the road, but the Warriors are still playing very well, and their stars continue to put up phenomenal fantasy numbers.

Draymond Green said he was "happy" that the Warriors lost to Memphis on Friday, because it gives the team a chance to address important, recurring issues.

Green was visibly upset on the court with some of the Warriors play-calling late in the game. "It's our fault," Green said afterward. "It's Steve [Kerr's] fault. It's my fault as a leader on the floor, as a floor general. It's Steph's fault as a floor general to get us in plays, to get everybody moving." The Warriors' occasional struggles haven't prevented them from having three players with top-15 fantasy value, and their owners have no reason to fret.

Draymond Green hit 5-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer for 15 points, 10 rebounds and 13 assists in Monday's 127-119 win over the Nuggets.

Green flirts with triple-doubles nearly every night, but this was just his second of the season. He would have a whole lot more, but has double-doubled with single-digit scoring three times this season, and missed several more by just a couple rebounds or assists. He's having another stellar season and might be the most fun player in the league to own who's not averaging more than 11 points.
Jan 3 - 1:09 AM

Draymond Green scored 14 points with six rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes against the Raptors on Wednesday.

After a loss to the Cavs in the spotlight on Christmas, it was pretty easy to tell the Warriors wanted to go back to the well from their historic 2015-16 season. "We wanted to get back to running more drags," Green said. He did say that he wanted to use more pick-and-roll in this matchup because the Raptors struggled there -- he's right. No matter what the Warriors run, Dray will get his.

Kevin Durant said that the Warriors don't want to "put a muzzle" on Draymond Green, because despite the technicals, he brings a good energy to the squad.

"I never was the one to try to reign a guy in for his passion for the game," Durant said. "He got a few techs for screaming, beating his chest, walking away fast. I think if the refs feel like you show them up or embarrass them in front of everybody, they could just throw a tech on you." Green also said that he won't change his approach despite leading the team in technical fouls with seven, but hopefully he can avoid seeing that number rise to 16, which will result in an automatic one-game suspension.

Draymond Green went 7-of-9 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line over 32 minutes on Sunday, ending his evening with 16 points, four boards, four assists, one steal and six turnovers.

Turnovers typically aren't an issue for Green, who ranks in the top-4 in assist-to-turnover ratio this season, and the lack of defensive stats was probably due to the fact that Green was in foul trouble from the get-go. Owners can expect a more impressive outing Wednesday vs. the Raptors.

Draymond Green finished Friday's win vs. the Pistons with five points on 1-of-8 shooting, 10 rebounds, 12 assists, two steals, one block and four turnovers in 38 minutes.

Green missed one game following the birth of his son, but he was back in uniform vs. Detroit's new-look frontcourt tonight. There's no way he'll miss Sunday's epic rematch vs. the Cavaliers.

Draymond Green (personal) will be in the starting lineup next to Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant and Zaza Pachulia against the Pistons on Friday.

No players are resting tonight, so the Warriors should do some damage. The new proud papa gets a double narrative with a homecoming game, so he has plenty of incentive for a big game. Get him in your lineup.

Draymond Green (personal) is available and will play Friday at Detroit.

Green missed Thursday's game in Brooklyn following the birth of his son, Draymond Jamal Green Jr. Make sure Green is back in your starting lineup, as he should be expected to see his typical allotment of minutes on Friday. Kevon Looney will be bumped back to the bench.

Draymond Green (personal) posted on his Snapchat that he is flying to Detroit for Friday's game against the Pistons.

We'll pass along any formal update, but his fantasy owners can expect him to be a full go. The Warriors were still able to get a win, but their defense was awful in the first half. Kevon Looney will move back to the bench while David West and Zaza Pachulia take hits.

Draymond Green (personal) will not play against the Nets on Thursday night.

He has returned to the Bay Area for the birth of his son, Draymond Jamal Green Jr. Green's status is to be determined for the Friday game in Detroit and the Christmas game in Cleveland. With Green out, the Warriors will likely roll with more Andre Iguodala off the bench with Kevon Looney likely to start. Looney only played 18 minutes in his start for Dray earlier this season, so he'd be a risky DFS play. Although, garbage time could get him over 20 minutes.

Draymond Green was incredible during Tuesday's 104-74 win over the Jazz, racking up 15 points, 11 boards, four assists, two 3-pointers, five steals and just two turnovers in 31 minutes.

The Dubs flexed their muscles on the defensive end in this one, and Green led the charge. He’s having another top-15 season despite only averaging 10.5 points a game thanks to his 1.2 triples, 8.7 boards, 7.3 dimes, 2.2 steals, 1.4 blocks and just 2.0 turnovers per contest. He’s also in the top-3 in assist-to-turnover ratio, so yeah, he’s pretty good.
