G - LAL
Danny Green scored 11 points (4-10 FG, 3-5 3PT) adding two rebounds and one assist in 30 minutes during Monday night’s 124-121 victory over the Denver Nuggets.
After missing the game prior, Green returned to the starting lineup to provide some timely shooting down the stretch of the 4th quarter.

His veteran presence will be great for a Laker's playoff run but he's best left untouched in fantasy circles.

This season he has averaged 25.1 minutes of playing time, 8.2 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.2 steals, and .5 blocks per game. Green should be an asset for those playing in a deep-league format.
