Green posted 27 points (11-15 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, two assists, and three steals across 28 minutes in Thursday's 117-113 loss to the Cavaliers.

EDGE Analysis

By far his best game since joining the Cavs. Green's performance is just another example of how deep the team is willing to go to find a spark to revive their sputtering offense. By no means should you expect this kind of output on a nightly or even weekly basis as the team will no doubt employ a variety of options around LeBron James and Kevin Love moving forward. Green could be in line for a larger role in that rotation, but it doesn't warrant Green's presence on anyone's fantasy radar at this juncture.

Green contributed 16 points (4-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 7-8 FT), two rebounds, and two assists in 24 minutes during Tuesday's 119-112 win over the Bulls.

EDGE Analysis

Green has seen his playing time slightly increased in every game thus far this season, and he earned 10 more minutes against the Bulls than he did in the opener one week ago. With that being said, Green's statistical production is typically pretty modest, so he's best reserved for use in deep leagues.

Green collected 19 points (8-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and one block across 24 minutes in Saturday's 102-94 loss to the Wizards.

EDGE Analysis

Green threw down the dunk of the preseason over Ian Mahinmi en route to a very efficient outing. While these plays and stat lines flash Green's potential, he will take a seat on the bench as the regular season rolls around and the Cavs begin to get their starters more minutes.

Green will start at power forward for Sunday's preseason matchup with the Wizards, Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Cavaliers are holding out nine players Sunday, with the majority getting the night off for rest. That includes the likes of Jae Crowder, LeBron James and Kevin Love in the frontcourt, which provides an opportunity for Green to draw the start. He'll see a ton of minutes Sunday, though he'll be in for a reduced role as a reserve forward once the regular season arrives.

Green has agreed to join the Cavaliers on a one-year, $2.3 million deal, Brian Windhorst of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Green averaged career lows across the board last season, posting 9.1 points (39.4% from the field), 3.1 boards and 1.2 assists across 22.2 minutes per game. It seems likely that he'll see significantly less playing time with the Cavaliers, who are contenders, than he did with the Magic, who were in a rebuilding phase. As a result, his fantasy value will probably take a significant hit, possibly bordering on irrelevancy.

Green (back) is set to miss the remainder of the season, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Green, who has missed the last seven games with a back issue, will be shut down in order for the Magic to give minutes to their younger players as the season winds down. Aaron Gordon and Mario Hezonja figure to continue seeing the bulk of the minutes at power forward. Green is set to become a free agent this offseason.

Green (back) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Cavaliers, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Green will be missing a seventh straight game Tuesday, as a sore lower back continues to linger. His next opportunity to play will be Thursday against the Nets, but considering the Magic have already been ruled out of playoff contention, they likely aren't in a rush to bring the veteran back into the fold. Look for his status to be updated again following Wednesday's practice session.

Green (back) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Celtics and Saturday's matchup with the Nets, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Green is continuing to deal with back problems and will now have missed six straight games due to the issue. With the regular season drawing to a close, it's possible the Magic decide to hold out the veteran forward for the remainder of the year, but for as long as he is out, Mario Hezonja will continue to see an increased workload off the bench.

Green (back) is listed as out in the Magic's game notes for Wednesday's tilt with the Thunder.

EDGE Analysis

Green is still plagued by lower-back soreness and will be sidelined for a fourth straight game as a result. With the non-contending Magic simply running out the clock on the season, there's little incentive for the team to rush the veteran forward back into action. Mario Hezonja will continue to see increased minutes as the primary backup at power forward for the duration of Green's absence.

Green (back) won't travel to Toronto for Monday's game against the Raptors, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Green is in line to miss a third straight game Monday, as back spasms continue to limit his availability. With Green out again, Aaron Gordon should continue to see the bulk of the minutes at power forward, while Mario Hezonja could shift over and see some added time off the bench behind Gordon as well. Green's next opportunity to play will be Wednesday against the Thunder.
