News: Warriors forward Draymond Green received the start Wednesday night against the Knicks with David Lee serving a one-game suspension. He scored four points and hauled in five rebounds in the 109-105 loss. He went 2 for 4 from the field, missing his lone attempt from downtown, while playing 27 minutes. Green also posted an assist, a steal and a block in the defeat.
Analysis: Green made the first start of his career Wednesday and had a decent all-round game. He does not score enough to matter in Fantasy, however, so continue to ignore the rookie in the majority of formats.
News: Warriors forward Draymond Green earned his first career ejection during Tuesday's contest against the Rockets. Green and Rockets forward Marcus Morris began yapping at each other late in the fourth quarter of the 140-109 blowout loss and both players were eventually ejected for their actions. Green finished with eight points, two rebounds and two blocks prior to being shown the gate.
Analysis: Green is a classic example of a player who is extremely valuable to his team, but is not much of a factor in Fantasy. The rookie's strong defensive along with his hustle have earned him minutes in coach Mark Jackson's rotation, but he is averaging just 4.0 points and 3.6 rebounds over his last five games. He is averaging 16 minutes per game over that stretch, but should remain unowned in the majority of formats at this point in the year.
News: Warriors forward Draymond Green saw his most extensive playing time of the season Wednesday against the Heat, as he played 29 minutes in a 92-75 loss. Green chipped in nine points on 3 of 5 shooting, while going 3 for 4 from the free-throw line. Green added seven rebounds and an assist, however he also turned the ball over four times.
Analysis: Interestingly, each of the games in which Green has played the most has been against the Heat, as their small-ball brand of basketball allows him to play more often. Green is playing a pretty big role for the Warriors despite being a second-round pick. He is averaging 15.0 minutes per game over the last five games, but is averaging just 4.6 points and 3.8 rebounds per game in that span. At this point, he has little Fantasy value outside of the deeper formats.
News: Golden State forward Draymond Green continues to see less than 15 minutes per game 31 games into his rookie season. Green improved his scoring production in December, but did so minimally. He has scored in double figures just once this season and that came back on Dec. 21 against Charlotte.
Analysis: Green isn't getting many shots and he's not hitting them when they come. He is producing 3.7 rebounds per game, however, showing potential for the future. The Michigan State product may have upside, but his Fantasy value is low for now.
News: Warriors forward Draymond Green played a big role for the second game in a row Saturday against the Wizards. Green played 23 minutes off the bench, one night after he played 28 minutes against the Nets. Green scored just six points of 3 of 10 shooting in the game, while adding eight rebounds, before fouling out in a 101-97 win.
Analysis: Green, a rookie out of Michigan State, has been playing more recently, averaging 16.8 minutes per game over the last five. He is still not providing much production, averaging just 3.2 points and 4.6 rebounds per game, so continue to consider him just a low-end Fantasy option in deeper formats.
News: Warriors rookie forward Draymond Green was held in check again during Friday's contest against the Lakers. Green missed both of his shots from the floor, both coming in the second half, but scored his first point in the league. He finished with one point, two rebounds and an assist in a 101-77 defeat.
Analysis: Green is going through a tough transition period from the collegiate level to the NBA as he has failed to knock down a shot in his first five games in his career. He was Michigan State's leading career rebounder and a prolific scorer at an elite level in the NCAA. That said, he is still trying to find his shooting touch early on to start his NBA career. He has tremendous upside, but should be left on waivers in seasonal formats.
