Green, back from a one-game stay on the bench, scored 23 points (8-16 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with nine rebounds in 40 minutes Saturday against Portland.
Green has been lights out from beyond the arc in recent times, hitting 57 percent of his triples in the last eight games, leaving fantasy owners with 2.1 made three-pointers per game to revel in. He'll likely return to the bench when Courtney Lee (hand) reappears, as he requested the bench move Friday, but while Green is hot, his three-pointers, scoring and decent rebounds from the small forward position are appealing for owners.

Green will get the nod for the injured Courtney Lee (hand) against the Blazers on Saturday, FOX Sports Wisconsin reports.
In 32 games since his arrival from Boston, Lee has earned 27 starts, which has helped him maintain a fair line: 12.5 points (on 41 percent shooting), 4.1 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 1.1 three-pointers in 29 minutes per outing. Expect him to remain in the starting lineup as long as Lee is sidelined.

Green returned to the bench Friday against the Mavericks. He scored 15 points (5-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and added three rebounds, one steal, and two blocks in 27 minutes.
Green has value as a rotation cog in Memphis. The inconsistencies in his workload translates to inconsistencies in his fantasy production, but he contributes in enough categories to maintain some value even on slow nights.

Green scored a team-high 21 points (7-12 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), grabbed five rebounds, notched two steals, and registered one assist in 33 minutes Tuesday.
Green's tenure with the Grizzlies continues to provide vacillating fantasy value. Aside from piling the points any given night, Green has recorded at least one steal in seven of the last eight games. His minutes were on the decline without Mike Conley (ankle) in the lineup, so the increased playing time Tuesday may have been a result of Marc Gasol's foul trouble.

Green scored 20 points (8-18 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT) with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in the loss to the Pelicans on Saturday.
This marks just his second 20-point game as a Grizzlie, underscoring just how much Green has struggled sinced being traded from Boston. Memphis seems to be making an effort to get Green more shots in March where he's averaged 13.8 shots per game, compared to 9.6 shots per game in February. Green is back-end starting option with a bit of upside in standard leagues.

Green continued a poor shooting streak in a win over the Lakers Friday, going just 3-for-12 from the floor, but making all 10 of his free throws to finish the game with 16 points, five rebounds, one assist and a steal in 32 minutes.
Just two games ago, Green went 3-for-13 from the field against the Jazz after making just 38.7 percent of his shots in February. While Green can put up big scoring totals some nights, he's never going to be the most efficient scorer.

Green recorded six points (3-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt), six rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 36 minutes during the Grizzlies' 93-82 loss versus the Jazz on Tuesday.
In 22 games with the Grizzlies Green has averaged 11.7 points (39.2 FG, 31.3 3Pt, 83.1 FT), 4.0 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.5 blocks in 29 minutes per game. During the last five games he's especially struggled, averaging 9.6 points (33.3 FG, 40.0 3Pt, 82.4 FT), 4.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 0.4 steals and 0.8 blocks in 29 minutes per game. He's still getting quality minutes, but the career 43.9 percent field-goal shooter will have to pick it up if he's going to make a return to fantasy relevance. The Grizzlies are back in action on Wednesday versus the Rockets.

Green missed all six of his shots Friday in a loss to the Clippers, and finished the game with just two points (2-3 FT), one assist, one block and three rebounds in 16 minutes.
Friday's game broke Green's streak of eight straight games with 11 or more points. In his nine games this month, Green is averaging 12.4 points on 40 percent shooting, 3.9 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 29.7 minutes per game.

Green scored 16 points (5-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT) with six rebounds, two assists and a steal in 35 minutes during Monday's win over the Clippers.
He's not providing the numbers he did in Boston, but Green has now scored in double digits in eight straight games with the Grizzlies, averaging 12.5 points, 4.0 boards and 1.0 threes over that stretch.

Green recorded 13 points and two rebounds in 26 minutes as a starter against the Nuggets on Thursday.
Green has now made a couple of starts as it appears that he's won that role over Tony Allen moving forward. Although, Green has yet to play more than 32 minutes over his nine games in Memphis, meaning that a chunk of small forward minutes are being given to Allen regardless of which one of them is in the starting lineup.
