Green closed with 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt), 11 rebounds and one assist in 23 minutes during Tuesday's 122-105 loss to Phoenix.
Green had one of his better games in recent memory, taking advantage of the fact his teammates were struggling to find their rhythm. Typically locked into a secondary role off the bench, Green is more of a role player for the Nuggets, so nights like this are not likely to become a regular occurrence.
Green will come off the bench Tuesday at Charlotte, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.
The 30-year-old started Saturday and had nine points (3-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 32 minutes, but he'll shift back to the bench Tuesday with Aaron Gordon (calf) rejoining the lineup. Green averaged 8.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 21.0 minutes in the five games preceding the spot start.
Green will start in Saturday's game against the Nets, Katy Winge of Altitude Sports reports.
Green is set to make his first start since February 19 and just his fifth start of the season. Paul Millsap will shift to the bench as the Nuggets opt for a smaller lineup against the Nets.
Green compiled 15 points (6-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists and a blocked shot across 21 minutes in Thursday's 121-11 win over the Raptors.
Although Green is far from consistent, he deserves serious consideration whenever Denver is on a back-to-back. As the frontcourt's primary backup, the veteran understands his role and knows how to provide a spark on both ends of the court when Nikola Jokic or Aaron Gordon need a break. Coach Michael Malone's ability to balance playing time in the rotation will be crucial during the playoffs, and Green will be a key factor in achieving that goal.
Green provided 10 points (4-5 FG, 2=2 3Pt) and three rebounds across 21 minutes in Saturday's 129-116 win over the Rockets.
The arrival of Aaron Gordon has added a huge dose of volatility to Green's overall production, but he stands to make an impact whenever the Nuggets find themselves in a lopsided game heading into the second half. He demonstrated that in previous beatdowns of Houston and Miami over the past few weeks. Still, that isn't enough to uncap his limited fantasy value at this point in the season.
Green compiled 20 points (7-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, an assist and a steal across 14 minutes in Sunday's 126-102 win over the Hawks.
Green's burst of production in only 14 minutes is definitely an outlier, as his 20 points were a season-high for the journeyman forward. He currently averages 19 minutes per game for the Nuggets, but the roster just got a bit more crowded with Aaron Gordon's arrival. Gordon replaced Paul Millsap in the starting lineup Sunday, and that demotion's ripple effect could negatively affect Green's production moving forward.
Green had 16 points (6-10 FG, 4-6 3Pt) and three rebounds in Monday's win over the Pacers.
Playing in his second game since returning from an injury absence, Green had one of his more efficient nights of the season, needing just 18 minutes to post his highest point total since Jan. 25. With Paul Millsap healthy, Green will likely remain in a bench role, though the two have split minutes relatively evenly thus far, with Millsap holding only a slight edge.
Green (illness) recorded five points (2-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt) and five rebounds in 18 minutes off the bench Saturday in the Nuggets' 116-103 loss to the Mavericks.
Green had missed the Nuggets' last eight games, first due to a shoulder sprain before he fell victim to a stomach ailment. After gaining clearance for Saturday's game, Green slotted back in as Denver's backup power forward behind Paul Millsap. He'll likely see his minutes fall in the 15-to-20-minute range in most games when Denver has all of its key rotation players available.
Green (illness) is available for Saturday's game, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.
The 30-year-old was probable with an illness after sitting out Friday's contest, but he's active for the second game of the back-to-back set. Green missed the previous seven games due to the COVID-19 protocols, so it'll be his first game action since Feb. 19.
Green (illness) is probable for Saturday's game against the Mavericks.
Green has recovered from a shoulder sprain that kept him out of the final seven games before the All-Star break, but he was unable to play Friday due to a stomach illness. However, he'll likely be able to return to the court against Dallas on Saturday.
Green (illness) will not play in Friday's game against Memphis.
A shoulder sprain kept Green out of the final seven games before the break, but it looks like it's a stomach illness that will sideline him Friday night. With the Nuggets playing on the front end of a back-to-back, Green should be considered very much questionable for Saturday's game versus Dallas.
Green (shoulder) will not play in Friday's game against the Grizzlies.
Green is dealing with a stomach bug, and it is apparently severe enough to keep him sidelined. His next chance to suit up will come Saturday versus the Mavericks.
Green (shoulder) is questionable for Friday's game against the Grizzlies, Katy Winge of Altitude Sports reports.
Green missed extended time ahead of the All-Star break due to a left shoulder sprain, but he could be back in action Friday as the Nuggets return to the court. If he's unable to return, Michael Porter and Zeke Nnaji could see increased run for Denver.
Coach Michael Malone said Monday that Green (shoulder) isn't expected to play before the start of the All-Star break Friday, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.
Green was already ruled out for Monday's game against the Bulls, but it appears he'll also be sidelined for Tuesday's and Thursday's matchups with Milwaukee and Indiana. Green will have missed the last seven games heading into the All-Star break, and his next chance to play will come March 12 against the Grizzlies.
Green (shoulder) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Bulls, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.
The 30-year-old will miss his fifth consecutive game due to a left shoulder sprain. Green's next chance to play will come Tuesday at Milwaukee, though he should at best be considered questionable for that contest.
Green (shoulder) is out Saturday against the Thunder, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.
A sprained left shoulder has kept Green on the sidelines over the past three games, and another absence is in store Saturday. His next chance to take the floor arrives Monday against the Bulls.
Green (shoulder) has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Wizards, Mike Singer of the Denver Post reports.
This will mark Green's third straight absence since he strained his shoulder against the Cavs on Feb. 19. The injury comes at an unfortunate time for Green, who likely would've been set for an increased role with Paul Millsap (knee) sidelined with an injury of his own. Expect the Nuggets to start Michael Porter Jr. or rookie Zeke Nnaji at power forward Thursday.
Green (shoulder) will remain out for Tuesday's game against Portland, Harrison Wind of DNVR Sports reports.
A sprained left shoulder will keep Green out of a second straight contest, and with Paul Millsap (knee) also out, Zeke Nnaji could be set for another start at power forward. Fortunately for Green, he likely won't be in store for a lengthy absence, as head coach Michael Malone told Mike Singer of The Denver Post on Sunday that Green's injury is a short-term concern.
Green (shoulder) is out Sunday against the Hawks.
Green sprained his shoulder during Friday's win over the Cavaliers, and he'll be forced to sit out Sunday. Paul Millsap (knee) also remains out, so the Nuggets will be thin in the frontcourt. Michael Porter and Zeke Nnaji could see more usage as a result.
Green (shoulder) didn't return to Friday's game against Cleveland.
Green suffered a left shoulder contusion after playing just one minute Friday, and he was unable to return over the remainder of the game. It's not yet clear whether the injury will impact his availability for Sunday's game against Atlanta.
