Green finished Friday's game against San Antonio with 14 points (6-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and a block over 23 minutes. After a three-game absence due to rest purposes, Green was solid off the bench in a 129-112 loss. The 32-year-old forward is averaging 12.3 points and 4.0 rebounds over 74 matchups this season, and he'll aim to end the 2018-2019 campaign on a high note with two matchups remaining.
Green (rest) will play Friday against the Spurs, Ben Standig of NBC Sports Washington reports. Green hasn't seen the floor in each of the past three games, but he'll return to the lineup with Jabari Parker (knee) ruled out. In March, Green averaged 11.5 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.0 assist in 26.3 minutes.
Green won't play Wednesday against the Bulls, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports. Green has picked up two consecutive DNPs, and that will be the case again Wednesday. It's possible his season is effectively over.
Green scored a game-high 25 points (9-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding six rebounds, a steal and a block in 24 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 113-108 loss to the Heat. It's the veteran forward's best scoring performance since he dropped 26 on the Hawks in early February. Green remains as erratic as ever -- he'd managed only 20 total points in his prior three games, two of them starts -- and he's best viewed as a DFS tournament lottery ticket in the right matchup.
Green will come off the bench Thursday against the Nuggets, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports. Coach Scott Brooks will counter the size of Denver's frontcourt by moving Thomas Bryant into the starting five next to Bobby Portis, bumping Green to the bench as a result. In 26 games as a reserve this season, Green has averaged 12.0 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 24.8 minutes.
