Green had just one point, three rebounds, and one steal in 16 minutes during Sunday's 118-100 preseason victory over Melbourne United.
You could be forgiven for thinking Green wasn't even on the floor Sunday as he managed just one point in 16 minutes. Green is likely to figure in the rotation on opening night but don't let that fool you. He has seen meaningful minutes throughout his career but has never established himself as a viable standard league option. Even with a last pick, there is almost certainly going to be someone there with more upside.
Green signed a two-year, $10 million contract with the Clippers on Monday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Green was used as both a small-ball five and stretch four for the Clippers last season after he was acquired in a trade with the Grizzlies. After the series of acquisitions the Clippers had this offseason, Green was only going to be able to return for less than his market value, and he ended up choosing the opportunity at a championship over a pay raise. It's a very team-friendly deal, as Green also has a team option for the 2020-21 season, and he should end up being a key contributor off the bench for Los Angeles this season.
Green tallied 15 points (5-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and two assists across 27 minutes during the Clippers' 129-121 win over the Warriors in Game 5 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series Wednesday.
Green remained in the starting five for the second straight game and performed well with the opportunity, bouncing back from an atypical six-point effort in Game 4 during which he put up only two shot attempts. The versatile big was much more active Wednesday, and he remained hot from three-point range while pushing this success rate from distance during the series to a blistering 66.3 percent. Green's floor-spacing ability and solid work on the boards should keep him on the first unit for Friday's critical Game 6.
Green has replaced Ivica Zubac in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against Golden State, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.
Green has averaged 12.7 points and 6.0 rebounds so far in the series off the bench, so the Clippers have moved him into the starting lineup to try and match with all of the Warriors's playmakers. Zubac will move to the bench as a result, but should still see minutes after recording 18 points and 15 rebounds in the Game 3 defeat.
Green posted 13 points (4-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), two rebounds, one assist and one block in 25 minutes off the bench Wednesday in the Clippers' 143-137 overtime win over the Jazz.
Green had missed the Clippers' previous two contests due to the personal matter but turned in a quality performance off the bench to give himself some momentum heading into a first-round playoff matchup with the Warriors. After coming over from Memphis at the trade deadline, Green made 24 appearances (two starts) for Los Angeles, averaging 8.7 points, 6.5 boards and 1.4 triples in 19.6 minutes per game.
Green (personal) should play Wednesday against Utah, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.
Green has missed the past two matchups due to a personal matter, but he's expected to be back for the regular-season finale. If the Clippers are to avoid facing the defending champs (Golden State) in the first round, they'll have to secure a victory Wednesday evening.
Green (personal) will remain out Sunday against Golden State, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.
Green is away from the team and remains with his family following the birth of his child. His next chance to return will be Wednesday against Utah in the final regular contest of the regular season.
Green (personal) should be considered questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Warriors, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Green missed Friday's game due to the birth of his son, and it's possible he'll be out again Sunday. With Danilo Gallinari (ankle) out, Green could see an expanded role provided he's with the team and available.
Green is unavailable for Friday's game against the Lakers due to a personal matter, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Green is currently in Memphis to be with his wife for the birth of his son. He could return as early as Sunday at Golden State.
Green compiled 15 points (5-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and one assist across 22 minutes in the Clippers' 113-96 win over the Grizzlies on Sunday.
Green served as a solid complementary source of offense off the bench, especially in the fourth quarter. The fourth-year pro finished March on a strong note, posting three straight double-digit scoring efforts, including one double-double. The extra production coincided with a bump in minutes into the low 20s, and it remains to be seen if coach Doc Rivers continues to afford the 28-year-old the extra run in the handful of games that remain.
Green scored 18 points (8-9 FG, 2-2 3Pt) while adding 10 rebounds, a steal and a block in 23 minutes during Saturday's 132-108 win over the Cavaliers.
With Kevin Love (shoulder) out and Tristan Thompson not yet ready for a full workload, Green didn't face a lot of resistance from the Cavs' frontcourt en route to his sixth double-double of the season. The 28-year-old will be back on the bench once Danilo Gallinari (ankle) is cleared to return.
Green will start Saturday's game against the Cavaliers, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.
With Danilo Gallinari (ankle) out, Green will make the start. In five prior starts this season, he's averaging 7.4 points, 6.2 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.0 steal in 21.0 minutes.
Green had 16 points (6-16 FG, 4-8 3Pt), eight rebounds, and two assists in 24 minutes during Thursday's 128-118 loss to the Bucks.
Green snapped a 10-game streak of single-digit scoring efforts while dishing more than one assist for the first time since Jan. 23. Given the team's frontcourt depth and his modest minute totals, Green is best reserved for use in deeper leagues. However, Saturday's matchup against a weak defensive club (Cavaliers) could be considered a friendly enough matchup to make Green a sneaky cheap option in daily formats.
Green was scoreless (0-1 FG) in 14 minutes and chipped in one rebound and one assist Friday in the Clippers' 128-121 win over the Bulls.
With Danilo Gallinari (ankle) back from a one-game absence, Green returned to his normal bench role and saw his minutes fall precipitously. Since coming over in a Feb. 7 trade with Memphis, Green is averaging 7.4 points, 6.9 boards and 1.1 triples in 19.6 minutes per game, production that only makes him an interesting commodity in deeper fantasy leagues.
Green tallied nine points (4-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt), 11 rebounds, and one steal in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 125-104 loss to Portland.
Green moved into the starting lineup Tuesday, replacing Danilo Gallinari (rest) who was sitting out. Green played a team-high 32 minutes in the loss, falling just one point short of a double-double. He has been solid since joining the Clippers but is not really a viable asset in standard formats. He will likely slide back to the bench for Friday's game against the Bulls and remains more of a rebounds streamer.
Green will draw the spot start at power forward for Tuesday's game versus the Trail Blazers according to the Clippers' pregame broadcast.
The start will be Green's first since joining the Clippers prior to the trade deadline. He will be replacing Danilo Gallinari (rest) with the starters. In 12 games with the club he is averaging 7.9 points and 7.1 rebounds across 19.0 minutes.
Green collected 11 points (4-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt), eight rebounds and three steals across 17 minutes in the Clippers' 121-112 win over the Mavericks on Monday.
Green was efficient off the bench for the second straight game, following a 13-point, nine-rebound effort versus the Nuggets on Sunday across 22 minutes. The 28-year-old has proven capable of offering solid scoring and rebounding production during past campaigns with the Grizzlies, and he now seems to be carving out a modest but consistent niche in the Clippers' frontcourt rotation. While his second-unit role will inevitably lead to some fluctuation in his production, Green is an intriguing add in deeper formats and has viability as a DFS punt play.
Green had two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and four rebounds in 15 minutes during Saturday's 123-112 win over the Celtics.
Green had missed the last two games with the Grizzlies due to knee soreness prior to this his Clippers debut. Nevertheless, Green went from a team that regularly paired two traditional big men together to one that almost never does, and he's unlikely to maintain his average of 21.8 minutes per game through 42 appearances with Memphis this season.
Green (knee) will be available to make his Clippers debut Saturday against the Celtics, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Green missed his final two contests with the Grizzlies due to left knee soreness before the team dealt him and Garrett Temple to the Grizzlies on Thursday in exchange for Avery Bradley. It appears the knee isn't too much of a concern for Green at this juncture, as he took part in Friday's practice without any listed complications. While he'll dress Saturday, Green may only be in line for a minor rotation role with Danilo Gallinari expected to handle the overwhelming share of minutes at power forward.
Green (knee) was traded to the Clippers on Thursday along with Garrett Temple in exchange for Avery Bradley, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Given that Green was on an expiring deal this season and that the Grizzlies have turned into sellers, it seemed probable he was going to be dealt before Thursday's deadline. He'll join what is now a fairly crowded frontcourt in Los Angeles given the team's haul for Tobias Harris on Wednesday, so it's unclear exactly how he'll fit into the team's rotation early on. Green is, however, shooting a career-best 39.6 percent from behind the arc this season, which should help the forward rise up in the frontcourt pecking order.
