Veteran SG Willie Green tied his season-high with 16 points off the bench vs. Philly, hitting two 3-pointers with two assists and two steals.
He made 6-of-10 shots in a season-high 32 minutes of action and seems to be an early favorite of coach James Borrego. It's hard to imagine Evan Fournier (14 minutes) consistently playing less than Green, a 33-year-old journeyman, and standard-league owners should look elsewhere for low-end guard production.

Date:

Willie Green played 22 minutes against the Lakers on Friday with five points, four rebounds, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer.

He played in overtime and apparently he's going to get minutes. Green does have noteworthy averages over his last five, posting 11.4 points, 2.2 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.0 treys. He's only worth a look in deep leagues.
Feb 6 - 9:58 PM

Willie Green scored 13 points off the bench on Monday, hitting 4-of-7 shots (including three treys) with three rebounds, three assists and one steal in 27 minutes.

Jacque Vaughn is coaching for his job and his rotations are all over the place right now. We give Green a tip of the cap for the nice job, but owners get a wag of the finger if they're thinking about a pickup.
Feb 3 - 1:56 AM

Willie Green is hoping to play 2-3 more years in the NBA.

Green is interested in a coaching career after his playing days are through, and it makes a lot of sense. Regardless of how long he plays, Green won't be a fantasy option.

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.
Wed, Nov 19, 2014 06:17:00 PM

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.
Fri, Oct 24, 2014 10:24:00 PM

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.
Wed, Oct 15, 2014 11:06:00 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.
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.
Wed, Oct 8, 2014 12:37:00 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.
