Green (lower back tightness) is questionable for Sunday's game against Portland, Sports 56 WHBQ's Rod Fischer reports.

It seems unlikely that Green would miss Game 1 of the Grizzlies' first round series considering he has not missed a game yet due to the ailment, and he played 34 minutes in the season finale against Indiana. Still, check back on his status closer to the start of Sunday's game.

Green (back) will play in Monday's game against the Warriors.

Green has been dealing with a minor back injury but it won't ultimately hold him off the court Monday.

Green (back) is expected to play Monday against the Warriors, Rob Fischer of Sports 56 WHBQ in Memphis reports.

Green has been bothered by a minor lower-back injury of late, but he hasn't missed any time. He's played at least 33 minutes in each of the last three games - including 41 on Saturday in Los Angeles - and he'll likely continue to see big minutes Monday. If Marc Gasol (ankle) and Mike Conley (foot) don't play, Green could be shouldered with more of the scoring burden.

Green (lower back) is questionable for Monday's game against the Warriors, Ronald Tillery of The Commercial Appeal reports.

Green was listed as questionable for Saturday's matchup with the Clippers, but he still managed to score 15 points over a game-high 41 minutes. With Marc Gasol (ankle) and Mike Conley (foot) also listed as questionable, Green could take on more offensive responsibility, if he's able to play. Of the three questionable Grizzlies, Green is the best bet to suit up.

Green (back) started and scored 15 points (5-16 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 4-6 FT) with five rebounds, and four assists in 41 minutes Saturday.

Green was a game time decision heading into Saturday's game, so his whopping 41 minutes are quite surprising. He could still get rested in one of the Grizzlies' final couple of games, but he should be safe to use in fantasy, as long as he plays, going forward.

Green (back) was able to make the start Saturday against the Clippers.

The Grizzlies must have decided that he he was healthy enough to deploy as they weigh trying to get the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference and having a healthy team heading into the playoffs. Even though he is playing Saturday, Green could be scratched in one of the Grizzlies' final two games if his back flares up again or if Memphis gets locked into a certain seed.

Green (back) is listed as questionable for Saturday's contest versus the Clippers in Los Angeles, FOX Sports Tennessee reports.

Since leaving last Saturday's game due to back spasms, Green has played the last two contests, averaging 13.5 points (on 55 percent shooting), four rebounds, and two assists in 35 minutes. An absence would likely result in Vince Carter and JaMychal Green picking up more work than normal.
