Green, who was expected to see reduced minutes, didn't get into the game at all Saturday in the loss to the Mavericks.
Owners would be livid that they couldn't get Green's contributions on a night when other Spurs were resting, but just be thankful that the reason he missed wasn't an injury. Green will be good to go for the Spurs next matchup.

Green is expected to play reduced minutes Saturday against Dallas, the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Following back-to-back triple-overtime games, during which Green played a combined 96 minutes, coach Greg Popovich has decided to take it easy on many of his regulars. Green is active but it appears he will come off the bench, with Marco Belinelli set to start at shooting guard.

Green attempted a career-high 21 shots Friday in a triple overtime loss to the Trail Blazers, scoring a season-high 27 points (9-21 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT).
Green was amazing in Kawhi Leonard's absence. The 27-year-old has been taking on a larger role in the offense with Leonard out, and has a combined 52 points in the past two games. Green also completed a double-double Friday by grabbing 10 rebounds. Green is a valuable play in most leagues, especially daily, with Leonard out, although Green has been coming off the bench.

Green scored 25 points (9-17 FG, 7-13 3Pt), seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and five blocks in 52 minutes during the Spurs' 117-116 loss versus the Grizzlies on Wednesday.
Green went scoreless in the first half, but absolutely exploded in the second half and overtime periods. If someone got impatient and dropped him, he's definitely worth picking up in most leagues, and especially in category leagues, as he is contributing impressive defensive numbers to go along with his typically stellar three-point shooting.

Green scored 13 points (6-10 FG, 1-5 3Pt) and added one rebound, one assist and a steal in 29 minutes against the Jazz on Tuesday.
Green will likely have a larger role on Wednesday when the Spurs play the Knicks because the Spurs are playing their second game in two nights. As a result, Tim Duncan (rest) and Manu Ginobli (rest) will likely sit out and Tony Parker (hamstring) and Patty Mills (shoulder) are out with injuries. Green may be a daily league fantasy play as the Knicks are poor on defense and Green will likely play a larger role to fill the many voids the Spurs will have on Wednesday.

Green scored 20 points (7-14 FG, 6-11 3Pt) with 10 rebounds, two assists, three blocks and two steals in 33 minutes during Wednesday's overtime win against the Nets.
Green's recent production has been incredible. He has 10 steals and 16 blocks in his last seven games. If that is not enough, he has also hit 23 threes over that same time span. It is an understatement to say he is a must own player right now.

Green was feeling it tonight, which resulted in him matching his season-high of 35 minutes. He finished the game with 18 points (7-13 FG, 4-9 3Pt), six rebounds, three assists, three steals and a block.
Green goes between big nights and duds, but his overall production across the board makes him an interesting option for those in need of three-point shooting. His ability to put up solid defensive stats and rebounding totals makes his off-nights a lot easier to swallow, while he's still averaging 28 minutes a game.

Green scored 10 points, but made just three of his 13 shots Thursday against the Rockets on Thursday.
Green also missed all six of the threes he attempted. He could have seen more minutes with Manu Ginobili resting, but Austin Daye and Kyle Anderson both saw minutes off the bench, including 31 for Anderson. Owners shouldn't be concerned about Green's playing time, but Thursday's game comes on the heel of a 3-for-7 shooting performance on Wednesday and a 1-for-5 game on Oct. 31 against the Suns.

Green played just 22 minutes in Friday night's loss to the Suns after playing 34 in the season opener on Tuesday.
Green had a poor shooting night, scoring three points (1-5 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 0-0 FT). Manu Ginobili and Marco Belinelli played over 20 minutes each off the bench. In Tuesday's opener, when Green started at small forward, Ginobili had 28 minutes off the bench. With Kawhi Leonard healthy, the Spurs will likely have Green's minutes split with Ginobili.

Danny Green hit 7-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer for 15 points, one rebound, three assists, a career-high five steals and a block in Tuesday's big Game 3 win over the Heat.
Green has now scored 13, 9 and 15 points in each of the three Finals games, which is a vast improvement over what he did for much of the regular season. Much like last year's Finals, Green is waking up at the right time, and his steals and great shooting were a big reason the Spurs were able to build, and hold onto, a huge lead in tonight's game. Tim Duncan added 14 points and six rebounds, and Tony Parker added 15 points, four assists and two steals as the Spurs built a 25-point lead and were never in real danger of losing to the Heat in Game 3.
