Danny Green racked up four steals on Saturday to go with 20 points, five rebounds, one block and four triples in 33 minutes.
This line is as good as it gets for Green with bunches of threes and defensive stats. Green is inside the top-130 on the season and can provide late-round value with threes, steals and blocks. His low upside makes him more suitable for 14-team leagues.

Danny Green (sore right hip) is listed as out for Saturday's game vs. the Thunder.
He was initially ruled out with an undisclosed injury, but now we know that Green is experiencing soreness in his right hip. Consider this a maintenance day more than anything. Green has been a borderline player this season as a top-135 value in 9-cat leagues. He has a nice profile for category leagues, which is what typically keeps him rostered, but his defensive stats are down this year so rostering him comes with even lower upside than usual. Avery Bradley and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will pick up the slack in his absence.

Danny Green hit 9-of-14 from the field on Friday night, including six 3-pointers, to finish a win over the Pelicans with 25 points, five rebounds, five assists and two steals.
Green's frequent disappearing acts have been immensely frustrating but he's sitting around the top-170 over the last couple of weeks and is still around top-125 on the full year, so he's worth a long look if you're hunting threes, steals and out-of-position blocks. His flightiness might make him a better fit in roto formats, but there's value here even if the journey isn't fun at all. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope took a backseat and scored five points on 1-for-7 shooting.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was the wing du jour on Saturday, turning 32 minutes into 13 points, a block and three 3-pointers.
KCP has been returning back-of-roster value for 12-teams GMs in the last couple of weeks, averaging 29.2 minutes in that span. It's not very exciting but it'll work, and it looks like he's surpassed both Avery Bradley (eight points in 18 minutes) and Danny Green (three points in 19 minutes). Nobody here is a must-have in 12-team leagues, but if you had to rank them by appeal from here on out it's going to go Green-KCP-Bradley, with the first two well ahead of last place.

LeBron James (thoracic muscle strain) is considered questionable for Wednesday's game against the Clippers.
It's well known that James has been hoping to play on Christmas, but right now that's not a certainty. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored six points in 25 minutes on Sunday, while starter Danny Green had five points in LeBron's absence.

LeBron James (thoracic muscle strain) is doubtful for Sunday's game versus the Nuggets.
The injury popped up out of nowhere and James did not participate in practice on Saturday. If James is forced to sit out Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Danny Green and Rajon Rondo will all see increased usage and minutes and be viable streaming and DFS options.

Danny Green caught fire on Thursday, hitting seven triples on his way to 21 points with four rebounds and a block.
He went 7-for-13 from the field and had been in a bit of a slump lately, so it's good to see him get it back on track. The Lakers don't really run many set pieces for their supporting cast so Green will go through some cold spells, but he's always able to heat up in a pinch on nights like tonight. He's a streaming play for triples.

Danny Green had a lackluster showing, to be polite about it, on Friday with a 3-pointer, five rebounds, a steal and a block in 21 minutes.
Green is just a late-round guy and doesn't have a ton of upside given that he's only getting 25.5 mpg on the year. He's worth holding onto in general, but a drop won't hurt you that much. The same goes for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who had five points, five assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

Danny Green managed just four points on 2-of-5 shots with only one steal and one block to the rest of his stat line in 21 minutes on Wednesday against the Pelicans.
Green has managed to keep late-round value this season with a 2-3 round advantage in 9-cat leagues, but nights like this are absolute back breakers. Given his low upside owners shouldn't feel tethered here.
November 22, 2019, 11:20 pmDanny GreenSG, Los Angeles Lakers
Danny Green posted 14 points (5-for-8 shooting), four rebounds, four triples and a block in Friday's victory over the Thunder.
Green contributed another solid outing as the Lakers enjoyed a productive night from their starting backcourt. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope also chipped in 17 points, five rebounds, four triples, two assists and a steal.

Danny Green did his thing on Tuesday, chipping in across the board with seven points, four rebounds, one triple, two assists, two steals and one block.
It's this kind of sprinkling of small numbers where Green excels, outside of his once-in-a-blue-moon explosions for 20-plus points on torrid shooting, of course. Green is a hold for these reasons. Keep him active with confidence.
November 4, 2019, 4:40 pmAvery BradleySG, Los Angeles Lakers
Avery Bradley, who bruised his right leg on Sunday, is questionable to play on Tuesday.
Bradley was having a nice game before the injury, but his owners should monitor injury reports on Tuesday. He is averaging 10.7 points and 3.3 rebounds so far. Alex Caruso and Danny Green could be in line for more action if Bradley is unable to face the Bulls.

Avery Bradley posted 11 points, five rebounds, two assists, two steals and one three in Friday's win over the Mavs.
Bradley and Danny Green (14 points, three threes, one rebound, one assist and one steal) filled similar roles for the Lakers in this one as they settled in with the most minutes of all the role players. Both are borderline fantasy options that should only be looked at in deep leagues and heavy game weeks for streaming opportunities.

Danny Green had a much more muted performance in his second game with the Lakers, scoring nine points to go with four rebounds, three steals, a block and two triples on Friday.
It wasn't the 28 points Green dropped on opening night but this is far more in line with what to expect out of the 3-and-D specialist going forward. He's a steady top-125 option, even if his lack of scoring will frustrate casual fantasy players. Avery Bradley had a decent outing as well with nine points, five rebounds, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer, but is best left for deep leagues.

Danny Green hit seven triples on his way to a team-high 28 points (10-for-14 FGs, 1-for-1 FTs), seven rebounds, two steals and a block in 32 minutes in his Lakers debut on Tuesday vs. the Clippers.
Green was on fire in the second half as he led a big Laker comeback. There's a bit of a void when it comes to the third option on this team for the moment and Green could fill that role at the beginning of the season. Though his shots won't fall at this rate every night, there's a good chance Green is in line for one of his classic top-100 seasons.
