  • Gerald Green: Scores 24 in return from injury

    Green put up 24 points (8-16 FG, 6-12 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two rebounds and three assists across 31 minutes in Wednesday's 112-100 victory over the Austin Spurs. He also had six steals and a block in the game.

    Green missed Monday's loss to the Spurs with an undisclosed injury, but he returned emphatically in Wednesday's rematch. He will need to cut down on his four turnovers in the game, but he was able to offset that impact with an amazing defensive performance as well.

  • Gerald Green: Misses Austin defeat

    Green did not dress for Monday's 127-124 loss to the Austin Spurs with an undisclosed injury.

  • Gerald Green: Near double-double in tight defeat

    Green tallied 22 points (8-24 FG, 6-14 3Pt, 0-1 FT), nine rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block across 35 minutes in Saturday's 117-115 loss to the Agua Caliente Clippers.

    Green was a threat from deep in his second game for RGV on Saturday, and he's been a big focal point for the team so far with 21 points and 7.5 rebounds per game. He's attempted 12 and 14 three-pointers in his two games, respectively, but he improved significantly against Agua Caliente (42.9 percent) compared to his percentage against South Bay on Thursday (16.7 percent).

  • Gerald Green: Leads scoring in RGV debut

    Green posted 20 points (6-17 FG, 2-12 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, three assists and three blocks across 33 minutes in Thursday's 130-121 loss to the South Bay Lakers.

    Green put up solid numbers Thursday in his first G League game in a decade, but he was wasteful with his shooting against the Lakers despite leading his team in scoring. He made just 16.7 percent of his 12 three-point shots in the game, but he is a 36.1 percent career shooter from deep in the NBA, so that may be due to rust.

  • Gerald Green: Pursuing NBA return

    Green signed a G League contract with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Friday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Green, who had been working as an assistant coach for the Rockets, averaged 9.1 points and 2.4 rebounds in 18.6 minutes per game across 12 professional seasons, but he announced his retirement from professional basketball in October after not playing during the 2020-21 season. However, with a record number of players appearing in NBA games this season, the soon-to-be 36-year-old will try to follow in the footsteps of Isaiah Thomas, Joe Johnson and Lance Stephenson by making a return to NBA action during these unprecedented times. It's unclear when Green will be officially available to play in a game for the Vipers.

    Green was waived by the Rockets on Saturday, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The veteran didn't suit up last season but averaged 9.2 points and 2.5 rebounds over 20.2 minutes per game across 73 appearances in 2018-19.

    Green was on the Rockets' roster heading into last season, but he broke his foot during the preseason and was eventually moved to Denver -- and subsequently waived -- at the trade deadline. The veteran wing did not suit up for an NBA game in 2019-20, but he'll return to Houston and look to make the roster on a veteran's minimum contract. In 2018-19, Green appeared in 73 games for the Rockets and averaged 9.2 points and 2.5 rebounds in 20.2 minutes.

    Green visited multiple specialists over the last few days before surgery was decided as the best course of action.
