Willie Green scored seven points in 12 minutes during Monday's win over the Bulls.
This was just the second time since December 12 that Green has seen the court as the Magic had to dig into their bench with Evan Fournier (knee) and Tobias Harris (ankle) out. Neither player is expected to miss extended time, however, so fantasy owners can continue to ignore Green. Jan 13 - 10:46 AM

Willie Green (flu) will be available to play Tuesday vs. the Celtics.

Green doesn't do enough statistically to be owned in almost any league, leave him on the waiver wire.

Willie Green (flu) will not suit up for Sunday's game vs. the 76ers.

Green plays limited minutes off the bench for the Magic, so his absence shouldn't matter for owners in standard leagues. Expect Evan Fournier to soak up a majority of his minutes.

Willie Green started in place of Evan Fournier (heel) on Wednesday and played 31 minutes, but hit just 2-of-10 shots for six points and four assists.

Fournier's injury doesn't appear to be serious, but if he misses more games, Green could be a sneaky daily play if the Magic aren't too discouraged by tonight's performance. But once Fournier is back, you can forget about Green.

Willie Green will start in place of Evan Fournier on Wednesday night.

The Magic apparently do not want to put Elfrid Payton back in the first unit, so this news reflects on the value of Payton and Fournier. Green is not a fantasy option tonight despite how he has the revenge-game factor.

Willie Green (knee) had nine points, one 3-pointer and one assist in 15 minutes off the bench vs. Dallas on Friday.

He's averaged 9.3 points in 19 minutes per game during the preseason and could see more playing time if Luke Ridnour (knee) misses the season opener, but he's not on the radar in typical fantasy leagues.

Willie Green (rest) is out for Saturday's game against the 76ers.

He has just recovered from a minor knee injury and the Magic will rest him while they can. He is going to serve as depth for a crowded Magic backcourt and is not on the fantasy radar.
Sat, Oct 18, 2014 06:26:00 PM

Magic SG Willie Green (knee) will return to action on Wednesday.

Green's injury was never considered serious and his return is good news for Orlando's depth chart, but it has no bearing on fantasy leagues since buried in the rotation behind Victor Oladipo and Evan Fournier.

Willie Green (knee) will not play on Friday.

He just has some soreness from hyperextending his knee. Green may not get in the rotation and has very little fantasy value.
Fri, Oct 10, 2014 11:05:00 AM

Willie Green (knee) was limited during Wednesday's practice and he's unlikely to play in Friday's exhibition.

He hyper-extended his knee over the weekend and Orlando will play it safe with their veteran combo guard. Green is likely to play his biggest role as a locker-room leader, as the Magic backcourt is bristling with players who are younger and/or more talented.

Willie Green (knee) will not play on Tuesday due to a hyperextended knee.

It doesn't sound serious and he probably isn't going to get many minutes anyway. Green is not worth drafting in almost any fantasy format.

The Magic claimed Willie Green off waivers on Monday.

Green is a good locker-room guy, and he will bring veteran leadership to a young Orlando roster. Green averaged 5.0 points, 1.4 rebounds, and not much else in 15 minutes off the bench for the Clippers last season, and he's not likely to have much value in Orlando despite the increased opportunity.
Mon, Jun 30, 2014 06:15:00 PM

The Clippers will not pick up the team option on Willie Green's contract, making him a free agent.

The writing was on the wall with the Clippers selection shooting guard C.J. Wilcox on Thursday night. Green was a locker-room favorite, but his playing time really only came when the Clippers weren't at 100 percent. He'll likely join re-sign with the Clippers in a more cap-friendly deal.
Sat, Jun 28, 2014 01:41:00 PM

Willie Green logged 30 minutes in another start for the injury-depleted Clippers on Monday, scoring eight points on 3-of-7 shooting with two threes, three boards, three assists, one steal and one block.

Darren Collison is out with the flu and Jamal Crawford's timetable for return is elusive at best, and all the while Green is dealing with ankle, hip and finger injuries himself. This is a fine line against a bad defensive team in the Nuggets, and you're doing some serious fantasy jumping jacks if you try to use Green for the Clippers one remaining game this week. In related news, don't do serious fantasy jumping jacks with Willie Green.
Tue, Mar 18, 2014 01:58:00 AM

Willie Green started at SG out of necessity on Sunday, scoring 10 points with two 3-pointers, four rebounds and two steals in 36 minutes of action.

Doc Rivers had no alternatives with Jamal Crawford (calf) and Darren Collison (illness) both unavailable, and Green filled in competently without raising any eyebrows. Collison is day-to-day and Green is not a viable source of fantasy value.
