JaMychal Green got the game owners were looking for in Monday’s surprising win over the Cavs, scoring 16 points on 6-of-13 shooting (0-for-2 3PTs, 4-of-4 FTs) with 10 rebounds, six assists, four steals and two blocks in 37 minutes.
Green had flashed this upside a couple of times in the past but never truly hit the ball square off the bat until tonight. He’s a must-own player in all standard formats, even with the risk he slips whenever the Grizzlies’ core group comes back after their night off. He needs about 26 mpg to create a late-round floor for owners and if he gets that amount of playing time he will have mid-round upside, too.
