Gerald Green, following a missed 2019-2020 season due to injury, has been waived by the Rockets.
Although healthy and a Rocket Nations Fan Favorite, Green was waived by the team. This most likely due to a combination of the team's wing depth and the $1.5 million guaranteed contract absorbed by the organization following the season-ending injury of Chris Clemons. In his last year with the Rockets, 2018-2019 season, Green averaged 20.2 minutes of playing time, 9.2 points, 2.5 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 0.5 steals, and 0.4 blocks while shooting 40.0 percent from the floor and 35.4 from beyond the arc. In the two years with the team, Green performed well and will look to continue his career either with the Rockets again down the line or with another club. Depending on his health and team situation, he could be worth keeping on your radar as a deep-flier for DFS tournament play.
According to sources, veteran G/F Gerald Green drew interest from multiple teams including the Houston Rockets ahead of the June 30th transaction window cut-off.
Ultimately, Green decided it was in his and his family’s best interest for him to not play in the 2019-20 season restart. Green’s partner is expected to give birth in August and he didn’t want to risk anything heading into the bubble in Disney World. The 34-year old has received medical clearance to play again after a broken foot, and will become a free agent ahead of the 2020-21 season.
Green had surgery on his broken left foot and will miss approximately six months while rehabbing.
That means he's unlikely to see the court in 2019-20. Green's departure from the lineup probably won't move the needle much on guys like Eric Gordon and Danuel House, who already had established roles coming into the season.
