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.

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.
Jun 28 - 1:41 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.
Mar 18 - 1:58 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.
Mar 17 - 12:27 AM

Willie Green returned to action on Tuesday and failed to score in three minutes.

He'd been out with a hip injury and Doc Rivers didn't plan on even using him tonight. Obviously, he has no fantasy value as long as Jamal Crawford is healthy.
Feb 19 - 2:14 AM

Willie Green (hip) is available for the Clippers on Tuesday, but Doc Rivers doesn't want to use him.

Green isn't really relevant in fantasy, but the Clippers need him healthy with news that J.J. Redick is out indefinitely.
Feb 18 - 8:58 PM

Willie Green (hip) won't play against the Spurs on Tuesday night.

He did not play on Wednesday against the Blazers and there is no word on what's exactly wrong with his hip. Green is playing just 15.5 minutes per game this season and isn't really a big part of the rotation while the team is healthy.
Feb 17 - 6:18 PM

Willie Green (hip) will not play against the Blazers on Wednesday night.

He's only played 13.8 minutes per game over his previous five and is just around for the second unit. Green has no fantasy value.
Feb 12 - 9:16 PM

Willie Green hit 4-of-7 shots and three 3-pointers for 11 points and a block in 17 minutes on Monday.

He should see an increase in minutes with Chris Paul out for a month or so, but will need more than 17 minutes to make any fantasy noise.
Jan 7 - 1:37 AM

Willie Green hit 4-of-8 shots for eight points, two rebounds, two assists and a steal in 22 minutes off the bench on Saturday.

With Chris Paul out indefinitely Green is going to see more minutes for the Clippers. We doubt he'll be worth owning, but he's at least worth a watchful eye in deeper leagues.
Jan 4 - 11:45 PM

Willie Green scored 11 points on 4-of-5 shooting (including three treys) with three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 26 minutes off the bench on Monday, despite the presence of a splint on his left pinkie finger.

Green won't be this productive on most nights and he'll need to prove us wrong multiple times before we assign him any fantasy value.
Tue, Dec 17, 2013 01:45:00 AM

Willie Green will wear a splint on his left pinkie in Monday's game.

He didn't break his pinkie and should be fine. The Clippers will be starting Jamal Crawford at shooting guard, which makes Green's already minuscule value even smaller.
Mon, Dec 16, 2013 08:57:00 PM

Willie Green will get X-rays on his left pinkie on Saturday.

He had been starting before Jamal Crawford took over tonight, but Green's numbers were not great in that role. In his seven starts, he averaged 7.4 points in 22.4 minutes. He's not worth owning in almost any league. Green finished Saturday's game with no points in 21 minutes.
Sat, Dec 14, 2013 10:30:00 PM

Willie Green scored a season-high 11 points in a losing effort on Saturday, making two 3-pointers despite shooting just 4-of-13 overall from the field.

The veteran added four boards, one assist and a rare blocked shot in 26 minutes. He's been invisible despite starting at SG with J.J. Redick (hand, elbow) out of commission, and is an improbable source of value even if Reggie Bullock (ankle) also winds up missing time.
Sat, Dec 7, 2013 10:26:00 PM

Willie Green will start at SG for the Clippers with J.J. Redick (hand, elbow) out 6-8 weeks.

Jamal Crawford and Reggie Bullock will also have heavier minutes with Redick rehabbing, and Green has a recent history of uninspiring play as a starter. In 60 starts last season he averaged 6.8 points, 1.0 threes, 0.9 assists and 0.5 steals in 18 minutes per game, and even with more minutes under Doc Rivers he's unlikely to be more than a low-end source of 3-pointers.
