Draymond Green had a quiet night on Wednesday with just 10 points, two 3-pointers, four rebounds and one assist in 22 minutes during a road win vs. the Magic.
The Warriors were playing the second game of a back-to-back set on the road and Steve Kerr warned beforehand that he hoped to "rely heavily" on his bench. It wasn't a total wash for Green's fantasy owners, who should be confident in his outlook despite the impending return of David Lee (hamstring). Nov 26 - 10:11 PM

Draymond Green made only 3-of-11 shots for 10 points on Sunday, but he added one 3-pointer, nine rebounds, six assists, one steal and two blocks with only one turnover in 40 minutes.

Green can fill up a boxscore in so many ways that the occasional scoring dud shouldn't faze his fantasy owners. David Lee (hamstring) is targeting a return on Friday or Saturday, but Green may very well hold him off for the starting PF job -- if not, he'll have a big enough role off the bench to remain a must-own player in all formats.
Nov 23 - 10:11 PM

Draymond Green scored 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting (including a three) with nine rebounds, five assists and three steals in the Warriors' 101-88 blowout win over the Jazz.

The Jazz carried a 15-point edge in fourth quarter garbage time to get the game this close, and Green continued to plow away with his top 35-40 value. Yes, David Lee is coming back at some point and he's going to get minutes, but the Warriors don't look like they're going to make the same mistakes they've made in the past selling Green short.
Nov 22 - 1:53 AM

Draymond Green scored just seven points with six rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes against the Hornets on Saturday.

The line isn't great, but a player with a usage rate of only 18.6 isn't going to light it up every night. However, it's interesting to see the drastic upward trend in his minutes. Green played 13.4 in 2012-13, 21.9 in 2013-14 and he's at 32.6 this season. Green also has a remarkable 69.0 effective field goal percentage on his 29 catch-and-shoot attempts. He's been a top-30 player in the past two weeks and could be top 50 all season.
Nov 16 - 10:47 AM

Draymond Green took over against the Nets on Thursday with 17 points, eight rebounds, seven assists, one steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

He's shined in four of his last five games, averaging 17.2 points, 7.4 boards, 3.8 assists, 2.0 blocks, 0.8 steals and 2.4 triples. Green is absolutely rolling and he'll be a valuable asset for his savvy fantasy owners.
Nov 14 - 1:58 AM

Draymond Green tied his career-high with four blocks during Sunday's road loss in Phoenix, and he scored 22 points with three 3-pointers, nine rebounds and one steal.

These are the unique stat lines fantasy owners dreamed of when drafting Green this season, and he's a must-start player until David Lee (hamstring) returns to action, which isn't likely to be for another few weeks. Green turned the ball over five times tonight and his high scoring total is due partly to Klay Thompson's absence with a sprained hand, but Green's fantasy owners won't complain.
Nov 9 - 11:42 PM

Draymond Green had his usual multiple-category stat line during a 98-87 win over the Rockets on Saturday with 14 points, eight rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

After a slow start, he's on a roll and there's no reason to think that he'll slow down. Green was a top-40 player after the break last season and was one of the best players in the 2014 postseason. He's a must-start player right now.
Nov 9 - 12:37 AM

Draymond Green will continue to start at power forward while David Lee (hamstring) is out.

Lee is out for at least the next two games (and possibly longer), but Steve Kerr was flirting with the idea of keeping Green in the starting lineup regardless of Lee's health. After Wednesday's win, Kerr said "I don't know what my philosophy is...We're 4-0 with DG." Green will keep his starter's job for now (and possibly for good), so he should not be on waiver wires at this point.
Nov 6 - 3:39 PM

Draymond Green made another start on Wednesday and scored a career-high 24 points to go along with eight rebounds, five assists, a steal, a block and four 3-pointers on 8-of-13 shooting in 36 minutes.

David Lee aggravated a hamstring injury off the bench and was unable to return to the game. If Green was dropped in your league, picking him up makes sense, as Lee may have trouble staying healthy this season. Even when Lee does return, the Dubs are 4-0 with Green starting, and Steve Kerr said after the game he's not planning any changes to his starting lineup.
Nov 6 - 1:58 AM

Draymond Green worked with the starters at Wednesday's shootaround.

He had a blue jersey with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes and Andrew Bogut. David Lee is making his return tonight, so it looks like he'll be coming of the bench in his season debut. Green was playing around 30 minutes per game, Andrew Bogut played an unsustainable 31.0 minutes per game in his last two, and Marreese Speights and Festus Ezeli have also seen minutes, so Lee will only take a couple of Dray's minutes.
Nov 5 - 2:30 PM

Draymond Green had a quiet across-the-board performance on Sunday, scoring five points with six rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 29 minutes.

Green is likely to shift to the bench on Wednesday, with David Lee returning as the starting PF, but his per-minute value and versatility keep him viable in 12-team leagues. On a side note, Golden State's win on Sunday made Steve Kerr the Warriors' first head coach to win the first three games of his NBA head coaching career since Neil Johnston in 1959-60.
Nov 3 - 12:16 AM

Draymond Green will start again on Sunday in place of David Lee (hamstring).

Green's ability to contribute to each statistical category makes him well worth starting in standard leagues, so get him active in your lineups. He'll likely head back to the bench upon Lee's return, but until then, Green looks like a must-start player.
Nov 2 - 3:50 PM

Draymond Green was quiet against the Lakers on Saturday in another start with nine points, five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

It's not the worst line in the world, but everything was set up for Draymond to go off tonight. Green will be better his next time out and should be owned in all leagues.
Nov 2 - 3:27 AM

Draymond Green will start in place of David Lee (hamstring) against the Lakers on Saturday.

He'll join Harrison Barnes, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Andrew Bogut. Green is coming off a double-double in the opener and will probably have an even bigger game tonight. Get him in your lineups.
Nov 1 - 2:19 PM

Draymond Green got the start for injured David Lee (hamstring) in Wednesday's opener and double-doubled with 12 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, a steal and two 3-pointers on 4-of-7 shooting.

He also had five turnovers in his 34 minutes, but owners who bought the Rotoworld hype on Green have to be pleased with tonight's line. Now we'll have to see what Green can do coming off the bench behind Lee, once he's healthy enough to play.
