Magic's Jeff Green: Scores six points in return from back injury
Green (back) came off the bench and posted six points (3-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt), three rebounds and two assists across 25 minutes in Tuesday's 95-83 win over the Spurs.
Green only missed one game due to the sore back, but that was enough to prevent him from maintaining his starting role, as coach Frank Vogel elected to roll with Aaron Gordon as the starting small forward for the second straight game. After the Magic were able to claim one of their more impressive wins of the season Tuesday, it seems likely that Gordon and the other starters will remain in tact for at least one game, but Green's playing time may not suffer too much while he runs with the reserves. Even so, Green is averaging just 7.5 points per game on the season while shooting 32.6 percent from the field, so it's difficult to justify rostering him in most formats.
