Green started on Saturday and scored 18 points (6-11 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT) to go along with one rebound and one assist in 28 minutes during the Grizzlies' 101-83 win on Saturday versus the Sixers.
Coach Dave Joerger has stated that he has made integrating Green into the flow of things a priority, and also indicated that who starts out of the trio of Green, Courtney Lee and Tony Allen will be decided on a night-to-night basis. It's unclear how the distribution of minutes will settle out amongst the Grizzlies' three top wing players, but the fact that Green gets some time at the four bodes well for his value. The Grizzlies are back in action on Monday versus the Magic.

Green will get the start Wednesday, Grizzlies announcer Pete Pranica reports.
He has 30-plus minutes in each of his last three games, so Green has been about as fantasy relevant as he will be of late. Deploy him as usual, and look for him to potentially hang on to the starting role moving forward.

Green's production Friday was very similar to his good nights as one of the Celtics' leading men. Though many praised the acquisition in pure basketball terms, most also predicted Green's production would fall following his trade to the Grizzlies. After two games - still not enough to make any decisive conclusions - those who predicted that his number would decline are losing confidence in their guesswork. Green led the Grizzlies in scoring Friday.

Green made his Memphis debut Wednesday against the Nets and provided 10 points (3-11 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT) in 27 minutes in the win.
Green had been averaging 17.6 points for the Celtics, but his scoring will take a dip with the Grizzlies. He may take a few games to ramp up his minutes with his new team, but he should offer low double digit points with a smattering of other stats.

Green's impending trade to Memphis has been agreed upon and will be transacted Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.
The trade has been rumored all weekend but it can't be processed until Monday when the league office officially opens. Green is being brought to Memphis to help on the offensive side of things, although he can also serve as a capable defender at small and power forward when needed. However, his move to Memphis will seemingly reduce his value as he shifts into an ancillary role behind Marc Gasol and Tony Allen. He'll need to pass his physical before he takes the court, which means that a debut against the Nets on Wednesday is likely.

Green is listed as active for Friday's game, the Boston Globe's Gary Washburn reports.
It seems incredibly unlikely that Green would get into Friday's game, considering a trade sending him to Memphis appears to be all but done. The Celtics are supposedly just waiting on a third team to sign off on the deal that would send Green to Memphis and Tayshaun Prince and a first-round pick to Boston.
