Willie Green SG LAC 5 Days
Willie Green will start at SG for the Clippers with J.J. Redick (hand, elbow) out 6-8 weeks.
Jamal Crawford and Reggie Bullock will also have heavier minutes with Redick rehabbing, and Green has a recent history of uninspiring play as a starter. In 60 starts last season he averaged 6.8 points, 1.0 threes, 0.9 assists and 0.5 steals in 18 minutes per game, and even with more minutes under Doc Rivers he's unlikely to be more than a low-end source of 3-pointers.

Willie Green filled in for J.J. Redick (quad) on Saturday and played 36 minutes, but he finished with four points on 2-of-8 shooting, two rebounds, one assist and one steal.
This about sums up his fantasy appeal. Green shot better than 40 percent from downtown the past two seasons, but he's a poor fantasy option even if he carves out a decent chunk of bench minutes alongside Darren Collison and Jamal Crawford, which is doubtful.

The Clippers picked up their team option on Willie Green.
Green's option was for just under $1.4 million, so it's not a surprise the Clippers would use him to help fill out their bench. Unfortunately for Green, he's unlikely to see the court much next season after the addition of J.J. Redick, who should get the majority of minutes as the Clippers' designated shooter off the bench.

Willie Green had 15 points and three 3-pointers on 5-of-11 shooting in another start at shooting guard for the Clippers.
Chauncey Billups is vowing to return and Jamal Crawford had 11 points on 4-of-12 shooting in 29 minutes off the bench, so don't expect Green to play this well on a regular basis.

Willie Green started at SG and scored 15 points in Saturday's home victory, hitting 6-of-8 FGs with three 3-pointers, three rebounds and two steals.
Most impressively, Green did all that in 21 minutes, while Jamal Crawford pitched in 13 points in 24 minutes, and Matt Barnes added five points and six boards in 23 minutes. Chauncey Billups is day-to-day with a groin injury and he went through some non-contact drills on Thursday, so Green's starting gig may be short-lived.

Willie Green shot 5-of-6 from the field for 15 points with one rebound, one steal and two 3-pointers in just 17 minutes against the Rockets on Tuesday.
He played 21 minutes on Monday and had just six points, so there is hardly enough evidence to suggest he'll be able to produce in the event Chris Paul sits on Thursday. Green can be left on the wire in the vast majority of leagues.
