Jeff Green is expected to receive interest "from a slew of contending teams" in free agency, per Shams Charania.
Green's season started off terribly with the Jazz but he found new life as a small-ball center in Houston. He can still be an effective role player but this situation screams of "buyer beware" given Green's hot shooting with the Rockets and his career track record as a lackluster floor-spacer. It's possible that he really is improving as a 3-point threat, but not to the degree that he showed under Mike D'Antoni — who has a long history of elevating role players to the best versions of themselves, by the way. Green is highly unlikely to hold fantasy value next season but he will add to some team's depth in a meaningful way.

Jeff Green led all Rockets reserves on Saturday with 25 minutes and 13 points (3-of-9 FG, 6-of-6 FT), two rebounds, one triple and two blocks as the Rockets fell to the Lakers.
Green has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that he's been one of the Rockets' best on-the-cheap acquisitions this season. He's performed admirably over the course of the NBA restart and the playoffs that followed, providing the team with a spark of stable offense off the bench.

Jeff Green put up 16 points (7-of-11 FG, 1-of-1 FT), two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 35 minutes in a Game 3 loss vs. the Lakers on Tuesday.
The Rockets basically ran a six-man rotation tonight and Green was heavily involved in it. He always seems to have a big game when the playoffs hit and this was that game for this series. Standing at 6'9', Green is one of the Rockets' tallest players and has actually given Anthony Davis some sort of problems on the offensive end. He'll look to keep up the great work heading into Game 4 on Tuesday.

Jeff Green was amazing yet again for the Rockets in Game 3 on Saturday, contributing 22 points on 8-of-13 shooting while hitting 5-of-8 shots from beyond the 3-point arc.
The Rockets' system has worked wonders for Green, who has seen a resurgence in his production since signing with the team. The seasoned veteran actually checked multiple boxes in this OT loss to the Thunder, adding seven rebounds, three dimes, one steal and two blocks with zero turnovers in his 38 minutes on the floor.

Jeff Green led the bench unit in scoring and rebounding on Thursday, finishing with 15 points, seven rebounds, three trifectas and three turnovers in 38 minutes.
After years of struggling to find a consistent role with a team, Green might have found a home with this experimental offense that the Rockets boast. Despite coming off the bench, Green was in the game during the closing stretch. Austin Rivers was the other bench player who provided a spark, finishing with 11 points on 4-of-10 (3-of-6 3PM), four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 25 minutes.

Jeff Green put up 22 points coming off the bench in the Rockets' Game 1 victory over the Thunder on Tuesday.
Green finished with six boards, four assists and a steal to go along with the 22 points (8-of-12 FG, 3-of-7 3PT) in 32 big minutes coming off the bench. The Rockets were in sync on Tuesday, penetrating the lane with ease and kicking to open shooters all evening long. The Rockets were without Russell Westbrook (strained right quad) and were looking to spread out the production they usually get from him. "It was a team effort. We've got guys in the open court that can make plays. We've got to take a lot of pressure on James [Harden]. They're going to focus on him, so we've got to do our job to try and make plays," Green said. He was impressive in his supporting role and showed why he continues to find a spot on an NBA roster year-in and year-out.

Jeff Green moved into the starting five on Friday and put up 17 points on 8-of-10 shooting, also grabbing four assists, a steal and a block.
Green has been a middle-round guy for the bubble session and could keep it up into the postseason with Russell Westbrook out. He should move back to the bench when Danuel House (toe) is healthy again but Green is a name to keep tabs on as part of Houston's microball attack.

Jeff Green moved into the starting lineup on Tuesday as the Rockets elected to rest a couple of their main guys, tallying 17 points, four rebounds and two assists in 31 minutes.
Green is a noted scorer and found himself in a favorable position as the Rockets lost touch with the Spurs early. He has actually been a viable fantasy option over the past two weeks, putting up top-70 numbers in standard formats. Over the six seeding games, Green is averaging 14.2 points and 2.2 triples. If these numbers wet your whistle, he is worth snapping up.
August 11, 2020, 1:00 pmRussell WestbrookPG, Houston Rockets
Russell Westbrook will start alongside Robert Covington, Jeff Green, PJ Tucker and Ben McLemore on Tuesday vs. the Spurs.
The Rockets will be without James Harden (rest), Danuel House (toe) and Eric Gordon (ankle) for today's contest while Westbrook is expected to not be in the lineup on Wednesday. McLemore and Green are the players most likely to benefit from the various absences but Austin Rivers, Michael Frazier and Chris Clemons are also players to look at. Rivers is the most trustworthy of those three.

Danuel House (left toe sprain) is questionable to face the Spurs on Tuesday.
House popped up on the injury report after scoring just two points against the Kings on Sunday. Perhaps the toe was bothering him during the game and that might explain his poor shooting. James Harden (rest) and Eric Gordon (ankle) have both been ruled out and Russell Westbrook (quad) is questionable. If all are unavailable, Ben McLemore, Austin Rivers, Jeff Green and even Michael Frazier could be worth a look.

Jeff Green was effective yet again off the Rockets' bench on Thursday, chipping in 15 points on 6-of-13 shooting, plus three 3-pointers, four boards, three dimes and two steals in 27 minutes.
This is the second straight game that Green has cracked the double-digit scoring barrier, making him worth an add in 14-16 team restart leagues. It's beneficial to him that the Rockets like to keep a tight rotation, so ride him while he's hot.

Jeff Green showed out in 28 minutes off the bench on Tuesday, scoring 22 points to go with six rebounds and five 3-pointers.
Green has never been much of a 3-point shooter throughout his career, but he was feeling it tonight. He got additional run against a massive Portland frontcourt but was down at 19 and 22 minutes in his first two bubble appearances, which is more in line with expectations going forward. His minutes meant slightly less work for PJ Tucker (six points, eight rebounds, one steal, two threes in 34 minutes) and Robert Covington (six points, eight rebounds, two steals, one three on 2-for-11 shooting in 35 minutes). Expect the latter two to be the better fantasy options, but Green clearly holds some DFS appeal in matchups against big teams.

Jeff Green saw 20 minutes off the bench for the Rockets on Friday, contributing 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting with one rebound, one 3-pointer, one assist, one steal and one block.
Green provided Robert Covington and P.J. Tucker with some minutes of rest tonight and that's what he's there for. It was a bonus that he managed to do a bit of everything. There's no reason to add him in resumption leagues unless any of the Rockets' starters go down with an injury.

Jeff Green turned his season around after signing with the Rockets and ended up delivering top-275 fantasy value.
Green signed with the Jazz in the offseason but struggled mightily, shooting a ghastly .385 from the field, and eventually fell out of the rotation. He saw a quick renaissance in Houston, hitting an absurd 62.1% of his shots across 10 games, also chipping in 10.4 points, 3.2 rebounds, 0.9 steals, 0.5 blocks and 1.4 triples in 20.1 mpg. That's certainly more than should be expected moving forward but Green fits the Rockets as a capable defensive power forward who can shift down to center in their uber-small lineups. Green's season was a tale of two halves, certainly, but there shouldn't be much excitement about his fantasy potential in the coming years. When the percentages return to normal he'll struggle to keep afloat in 20-team formats.

Jeff Green was productive again for the Rockets with 18 points (8-of-8 FG), five rebounds, one 3-pointer and one steal on Sunday versus the Magic.
Green is going to maintain some usefulness for 16-team formats as long as he keeps shooting this well. He is going to have to come back down to earth in the near future, but he can be streamed in standard leagues for as long as he is shooting so well and receiving minutes in the mid-20s. This would not be the first time we saw a fantasy player suddenly discover boosted value after joining the Rockets.
