  • Alex Caruso
    SG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Alex Caruso (right hamstring) has been ruled out on Tuesday for the Lakers' game vs. the Sixers.

    Caruso is only an option in deeper leagues, as his value over the last two weeks sits just inside the top-200. This will be his second consecutive game sitting out, with Avery Bradley, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Danny Green standing to benefit the most in Caruso's absence.

    Danny Green (right hip) and Alex Caruso (quad) are available to play on Sunday night.

    Feel free to deploy both of these guards as you normally would. Green's much closer to the standard-league radar but can definitely be frustrating.

    Danny Green (sore right hip) is probable to play on Sunday.

    Green sat out on Saturday but should be good to go for tonight's tilt. Feel free to plug him into lineups if you need steals, threes and maybe some blocks.

    Danny Green (right hip soreness) has been ruled out of Saturday's game.

    Green has taken a step back in fantasy this season, and has settled into a timeshare with the likes of Avery Bradley and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. While his steals are up, his blocks, threes and efficiency have all taken notable dips, which has put him as a borderline value in 12-team leagues. There are no real winners as a result of Green's absence, though KCP is the safe, boring choice for threes.

    Danny Green is dealing with right hip soreness that has him doubtful to take the floor vs. the Grizzlies on Saturday.

    Green has lived up to his name this season, and remains one of the most inconsistent options in standard leagues. He's a steadier option for a 16-team league, but he's still worth a stream if you are fishing for 3-pointers along with some steals and blocks. While Green is out the Lakers will send more minutes towards Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Avery Bradley.

    SG, Los Angeles Lakers

    After an early trip to the locker room, Danny Green (laceration) returned and had a true throwback performance with 17 points on 6-of-10 shooting with five 3-pointers, five rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block in 31 minutes as the Lakers beat the Pelicans 118-109 on Tuesday.

    If only Green could do this consistently again, he'd be an early-round draft pick once more. Alas, he struggles to do enough across the board to earn a spot on most fantasy teams. Green is worth a dart throw whenever you need a little bit of everything.

    Danny Green scored 15 points on 5-of-7 shooting with two rebounds, three assists, three steals and three 3-pointers on Thursday.

    Green was on fire for a stretch, but cooled off quick as we've seen him do before. The steals were a nice touch, but we're not buying into it as the Rockets were a bit turnover prone tonight.

  • Marcus Morris
    PF, New York Knicks

    According to Brad Turner of the LA Times, the Lakers and Clippers are among the teams interested in Marcus Morris.

    Marcus Morris has been in the midst of trade rumors for some time now. Turner went on to say, "Knicks interested in Kyle Kuzma; would need Danny Green's contract to make it work. Knicks would want to move Green to another team. Clippers willing to part with Mo Harkless, but like Landry Shamet, who Knicks want." It remains to be seen if a deal is imminent as the Knicks have previously expressed interest in keeping Morris beyond this season. Trade season is in full swing so continue to monitor the news as we are less than 24 hours away from the official trade deadline.

    Danny Green played only 22 minutes on Saturday night but still had a productive fantasy game with nine points, four rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers.

    Green's game is fairly boring but those cash counters make him appealing as a bench guy in most formats, though his slow trickle of stats definitely makes him more palatable in roto formats. Green is a top-150/130 (8/9-cat) guy and should be rostered accordingly. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope chipped in 15 points and three triples but the defensive numbers are worth their weight in gold, and the reason that Green is the vastly superior play.

    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
    SG, Los Angeles Lakers

    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
    SF, Los Angeles Lakers

    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.
