Zach cruises around the deep-league ecosystem to see who can help you out

Gerald Green lit up the Kings on Wednesday for 25 points on 8-of-17 shooting with one rebound, four 3-pointers, two steals and two blocks.
He scored 25 points on Saturday but only came up with nine on Monday. If you can't handle Green's wild swings, then look elsewhere for extra help in 3s. He's best suited as a week-long streamer when the Rockets play a ton of games and/or some starters are injured.

Gerald Green came out of nowhere to score 25 points on Saturday night, hitting 7-of-12 from behind the arc against the Jazz.
All of Green's shots came from deep, which isn't exactly a rare occurrence for him in Houston. He's a deep-league option for scoring and triples, though tonight's probably the very far end of the bell curve.

Gerald Green scored 17 points on 6-of-14 shooting (including four threes) with three rebounds and two assists in 28 minutes off the bench in Saturday's overtime win against the Lakers.
Green can easily have a stretch here with 2-3 treys per game or more while the Rockets are searching for healthy bodies. If that can help you out, give him a look.

Gerald Green scored 14 points on 5-of-13 shooting with six rebounds, two assists, a steal, a block and four 3-pointers on Monday.
Green logged 30 minutes and his minutes should hover around this mark until Eric Gordon (right knee bruise) and Chris Paul (strained hamstring) return. He's a better streaming option than Austin Rivers (11 points, six assists, three steals and two triples), but is a 3-point specialist at best.

Gerald Green scored 21 points on 6-of-10 shooting with five rebounds against the Nuggets on Monday.
The Nuggets got within single digits late in the third quarter but Green nailed back-to-back triples thanks to James Harden finding him open at the top of the key. Green is nothing more than a 3-point specialist streamer and his impact on the court is greater than in fantasy hoops.

Gerald Green took all 11 of his shots from behind the arc on Monday night, hitting six of them for 18 points in 25 minutes off the bench.
Green also picked up five boards and a rare block. The return of James Ennis is going to hurt him but Green always has some 3-point specialist appeal if you think he can get hot on that particular night. Danuel House also got in on the act with 16 points, four triples and a block in 27 minutes of another start. We'll see how these two split time when Ennis gets back.

Gerald Green scored 15 points on 5-of-14 shooting (5-of-13 3PTs) with two rebounds and one block in 31 minutes off the bench in Saturday's win over the Spurs.
Green has a shot at being productive for owners in need of points and threes, but it's worth noting that James Ennis (hamstring, week-to-week) will return eventually and the Rockets are looking to add players.
December 21, 2018, 5:44 pmChris PaulG, Houston Rockets
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that sources are hopeful that Chris Paul (hamstring) will be able to return after 2-3 weeks.
Considering Paul’s age and previous hamstring issues, we’d put it towards the later end of that range in a best-case scenario. There’s no obvious replacement at point guard in Houston so James Harden will just be that much busier. Eric Gordon would also see more run while Brandon Knight, Danuel House and Gerald Green could also benefit.

Gerald Green started the second half in place of Chris Paul (hamstring) on Thursday and posted five points, six rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer in 25 minutes of action.
Green is definitely going to be called upon more often with Paul out but we wouldn't bet on him starting going forward, as the Rockets already have issues with bench scoring. He's on the board as a deep-league add for scoring and threes.

Eric Gordon (sore left knee) is listed as questionable for Saturday’s game.
With Houston already down James Ennis III (hamstring) it’ll be all the regulars picking up more usage with Gerald Green and Danuel House also getting more run.

Gerald Green scored 13 points on 5-of-6 shooting (including three treys) with five rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 21 minutes off the bench on Tuesday against the Blazers.
Green could be called upon for a similar role for however long James Ennis (hamstring) is out. If you're in a deeper league, need a streamer or looking for DFS punt plays give both he and Danuel House Jr. (12 points, five boards, one steal, one three, 19 minutes) a look.

Gerald Green (knee) is available for Friday's game against the Spurs.
There's just too much depth on the wings in Houston for Green to have any sustained value unless a couple of guys go down with injuries. He should be left on your wires.

Gerald Green (knee) is questionable to play on Friday.
Green's absence is hurting the Rockets at the moment as they're very light on scoring given the injury to Chris Paul. There's no fantasy impact from Green's absence as the rest of Houston's bench hasn't done anything that warrants your attention.

The Rockets will not have Gerald Green (ankle) available on Wednesday night.
This will be Green's second straight absence, and he's missing a nice opportunity for minutes and shots with Chris Paul sidelined. Michael Carter-Williams and Gary Clark might have to split the burden, though we'd shy away from any of the Rockets' reserves. They figure to lean heavily on their starting five.
