Date:

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.
Oct 15 - 11:06 AM

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.
Oct 10 - 11:05 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.
Oct 8 - 12:37 PM

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.
Oct 6 - 11:04 AM

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.
Jun 30 - 6:15 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.
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.
