Green scored a season-high 18 points (7-15 FG, 4-9 3Pt), six rebounds, and four assists in 34 minutes Monday against the Suns. Green hit double-digits in scoring for just the fourth time in 14 games this season, and it's clear that he's not scoring as much as last season (11.7 PPG). Still, Green is a solid contributor in threes, and he's a lock for 25-plus minutes per game, so he still has some room to contribute in deeper formats. That being said, don't expect him to hit 18 points on a usual basis.
Green continued to struggle Monday against the Knicks, posting just four points, five rebounds, one assist, and one block in 27 minutes of action. Green has yet to break the double-digit scoring mark in four games this season so far, and it's apparent that he's on somewhat of a cold streak. He's starting the season shooting 9-for-31 from the field (29 percent), and it's likely he'll bounce back at some point. Still, he's managed to contribute 5.8 rebounds and 1.3 steals in spite of his shooting struggles, so he's still worth owning in most standard leagues.
Green scored four points on two of 10 shooting along with six rebounds and four steals in 29 minutes in Sunday's win over Boston. Green has had a slow start to the year, shooting just 28 percent from the field and averaging 5.3 points per game through the first three games. Though Green starts he's still largely a role player on a Spurs team that features several all-stars. Look for Green to get his shooting numbers up closer to his career average of 44 percent as the season goes on, but to continue putting up average numbers as players such as Tim Duncan and LaMarcus Aldridge dominate the stat lines.
Green was hot from distance on Friday, totaling 19 points (6-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and five rebounds in a 111-96 win over the Rockets. The three-pointers will always be there for Green, but owners need more from him to make him valuable. He did set a career-high in blocks last season at 1.1 per game and that's an elite number for any shooting guard. He also set career-highs in points scored, steals, rebounds, free-throw percentage, and three-pointers made, so it appears his stock is on the rise.
Spurs guard Danny Green scored just five points on 2 of 6 shooting in 19 minutes of an exhibition loss to Miami on Monday. Green won't be a source of overwhelming Fantasy production, but he'll excel in the percentage categories, particularly from the three-point line. His career 42.0 percent shooting rate from long range makes him one of the league's most dangerous marksmen.
