Green finished with 12 points (4-8 FG, 4-8 3Pt), six rebounds and one assist in 29 minutes Wednesday in the 76ers' 117-109 win over the Celtics.
Green's defensive stats dried up after he had averaged more than two steals plus blocks over his last seven games, but he got the job done for those that rostered him for his three-point production. The 33-year-old's ability to occasionally chip in on the defensive end gives him a little more value than the typical three-point streamer, but his minutes and overall output are likely to dip a bit if Seth Curry (conditioning) is cleared to play in Friday's rematch with Boston.
Green recorded 12 points (4-8 FG, 4-7 3Pt), six rebounds, three assists and one steal in a 125-108 win Thursday versus Miami.
Philadelphia played six matchups at home during the first half of January. The veteran averaged 15.5 points across those games and recorded double figures in points for each one. Green also logged a 41.6 field-goal percentage, lower than the 45.6 percent he shot from three.
Green scored 29 points (10-25 FG, 9-21 3Pt) while adding 10 rebounds, six assists, two steals and two blocks in 50 minutes during Tuesday's 137-134 overtime win against the Heat.
The veteran sharpshooter racked up his first double-double of the season thanks to the extra frame and a larger role in the rotation due to the Sixers' COVID-related absences, but, more significantly, Green also tied the team record for made three-pointers in a game. He's drained multiple threes in six of the last seven games, but Green is also showing some surprising distribution skills, averaging 3.9 assists a game over that stretch -- nearly double his career high of 2.0, set back in 2014-15.
Green tallied two points (0-9 FG, 0-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and three assists across 28 minutes during Monday's loss to the Hawks.
Green followed up a 4-for-17 shooting effort on Saturday with an even worse display Monday as he failed to hit a single shot for the first time this season. The 33-year-old is on pace for the worst shooting season of his career as he's connecting on just 34.9 percent of his shots through 11 games. Green is going to have some good games here and there, but this poor effort wasn't anything new.
Green will be available for Saturday's game against the Nuggets, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
After Seth Curry tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday, Green was placed in the league's health and safety protocol as a close contact. However, it's now been confirmed that the game between the Sixers and Nuggets will take place, and Green has cleared protocol. Over the last four games, he has averaged 12.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game.
Green is questionable for Saturday's game against the Nuggets due to health and safety protocols.
Green is one of several 76ers in the league's health and safety protocols after Seth Curry tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday. Matisse Thybulle (undisclosed) and Tobias Harris (undisclosed) could see increased run if Green is unable to play.
Green registered 15 points (5-10 FG, 5-8 3Pt), three rebounds, five assists and two steals across 30 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Wizards.
Green got off to a slow start to the season, but he seems to be turning things around of late. He has scored in double digits in three straight games and has also converted 50 percent of his long-range attempts during that three-game stretch. He is still hitting just 36.9 percent of his treys this season, but the veteran sharpshooter is undoubtedly moving in the right direction of late.
Green totaled three points (1-4 FG, 1-4 3Pt) and one block over 18 minutes in Thursday's 116-92 win over Orlando.
Green has started each of his first five games for Philadelphia, but he hasn't had much of an impact with his new team early in the season. The 33-year-old is averaging 4.4 points and 2.0 rebounds over 22.2 minutes per game this year.
Green recorded two points (1-6 FG, 0-4 3PT), two assists and two steals in 18 minutes in the 113-107 win over Washington on Wednesday.
Green drastically underperformed in the win Wednesday. The guard made his debut after winning two consecutive championships and had nothing noteworthy to speak of. Green made a single basket out of 10 total attempts and will need to rebound very quickly if he is to maintain a starting spot in the rotation.
Green was traded to the 76ers from the Thunder on Wednesday in exchange for Al Horford, a first-round pick and a second-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The deal amounts to a salary dump for the Sixers, who will part ways with Horford after just one ill-fated season. In Green, Philadelphia adds a veteran shooter coming off of his second championship in as many seasons. Green's struggles in the postseason were well-documented, but over the last four regular seasons he's a 39.6 percent three-point shooter on 4.9 attempts per contest.
Green and the 28th overall pick of the 2020 NBA draft are expected to be traded from the Lakers to the Thunder this week in exchange for Dennis Schroder, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Both players are entering the final year of their contract and are set to earn north of $15 million for the 2020-21 season, so the deal adds up in terms of of salary cap. Trades can't be completed until the league moratorium is lifted Monday at noon ET, but this trade shouldn't be finalized until after Los Angeles makes the draft selection on Oklahoma City's behalf Wednesday. Green started all 68 games last season, and averaged 8.0 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 steals while shooting 36.7 percent on three-point attempts.
Green is probable for Sunday's Game 6 due to a left ring finger injury.
Green had recently been dealing with a hip injury, but now it seems like he's aggravated the finger injury he was playing through earlier in the series. Still, the three-and-D wing is expected to play in Game 6 with the Lakers up 3-2. Against the Heat, Green is averaging 6.8 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.2 steals in 22.8 minutes.
Green had just two points and missed all six of his field goals (0-4 3PT, 2-2 FT) in Sunday's Game 3 loss to the Heat.
The veteran continues to be a liability on offense, and his struggles were only amplified Sunday with the Heat staying in zone for most of the game. Green played just 17 minutes -- easily his lowest total of the postseason. Over the last two games, he's hit just one of 12 three-point attempts.
Green (hip) will start Sunday's Game 3 against the Heat, Heat radio voice Mike Inglis reports.
Green suffered a hip injury during Game 2, and while he was officially listed as questionable entering Sunday, the veteran's status was never believed to be in much jeopardy. Green will start at his usual spot on the wing as he looks to bounce back from a horrific shooting night (1-8 3PT) in Game 2.
Green is expected to play through his hip injury in Sunday's Game 3 against the Heat, Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.com reports.
The 33-year-old will test things out in warmups but isn't worried about the injury, and he's officially listed as probable. Green is coming off a quiet Game 2 as he had three points (1-8 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists and two steals in 22 minutes.
Green totaled 11 points (4-9 FG, 3-8 3Pt), four rebounds, three blocks, two steals and one assist in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 116-98 victory over the Heat.
Green continues to pop up on the injury report but was able to contribute on both ends of the floor during Wednesday's emphatic victory. This kind of production is the exact reason the Lakers acquired Green, and he certainly demonstrated his championship pedigree. With the Heat possibly moving forward without one, or even two players, the Lakers will be looking to assert their dominance in Game 2 on Friday.
Green (finger) will play during Saturday's Game 5 against the Nuggets, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.
As expected, Green will play through the same finger injury he played through in Game 4. In the series, the veteran is averaging 6.5 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.3 steals in 23.0 minutes per game.
Green (finger) is probable for Saturday's Game 5 against the Nuggets.
Green was probable for Game 4 and played 21 minutes, posting three points and three rebounds. Assuming he's cleared for Game 5, he should occupy a similar role.
Green is probable for Thursday's Game 4 due to a ring finger injury on his left hand, Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times reports.
The exact nature of Green's injury is unclear. However, it's on his off-hand and he's still expected to see the court for Thursday's Game 4. In the series, he's averaging 7.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.7 steals and 1.0 assists while shooting a mere 28.6 percent from the field and 29.4 percent from beyond the arc.
Green notched 14 points (4-6 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four rebounds and an assist in 26 minutes during Saturday's Game 5 win over the Rockets.
Green is recognized as a streaky shooter, but he seems to be trending his numbers towards the right direction after a slow start to the postseason. The veteran wing went 11-of-26 (42.3 percent) from deep during the Western Conference Semifinals, and the Lakers will certainly need his accurate touch from long range in the upcoming series against either the Clippers or the Nuggets.
