Gerald Green recorded 25 points (8-14 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 5-5 FT), two rebounds, and one steal in 27 minutes during the Miami Heat 's 97-78 win versus the Knicks on Friday.
Green started again in place of the injured Luol Deng, and filled it up with a season-high 25 points on only 14 field-goal attempts. As shown on Friday though, Green doesn't do much besides score, and he is a player capable of driving coaches and fantasy owners crazy with his inconsistencies.
Gerald Green will make another start in place of Luol Deng (hamstring) on Friday against the Knicks, Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel reports.
With Deng ruled out, Green will slot in at small forward alongside Goran Dragic, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Hassan Whiteside. In Wednesday's game against Detroit, Green scored 16 points (6-17 FG) to go with five rebounds and an assist in 38 minutes.
Gerald Green started for the injured Luol Deng (hamstring) Wednesday against the Pistons and posted 16 points (6-17 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds, one assist, and one block in 38 minutes.

Gerald Green made his return to the court following a six-game absence in Tuesday's loss to the Timberwolves. He played 12 minutes and scored two points (1-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt) to go along with four rebounds and an assist.
Green, who missed four games while hospitalized with an undisclosed medical issue and then missed another two due to a team-imposed suspension, found himself with a smaller role off the bench Tuesday than he previously enjoyed, as Tyler Johnson seems to have surpassed him on the depth chart. It's not out of the question for Green to reemerge as the Miami Heat 's top scoring threat on their second unit, but it may take a few quality shooting performances over lower-minute appearances before he fully regains the trust of coach Erik Spoelstra.
