Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire: SF Danny Green

After weeks of stockpiling injuries and frustrating fantasy basketball fans, the San Antonio Spurs are finally starting to get healthy.

Probably the most underrated healthy addition to the team in recent weeks has been SF Danny Green.

Green missed several weeks with a broken finger, but the five-year veteran is just starting to get back into game shape. Green returned from injury just before the All-Star break and ended up playing the team’s final six games. Over that time, he has posted 9.7 points, 5.2 boards, 1.8 triples, and 1.2 blocks. It wasn’t the most impressive stat line, but it was still nice to see Greeny filling the box score again.

Green has always been very efficient perimeter scorer throughout his career. He is constantly hitting multiple three-pointers per game for fantasy fans and will be a very reliable outside shooter to rely on down the stretch. He won’t rival Stephen Curry in thee-pointers, but Green is more than capable of carrying his weight in triples. He is one of the most overlooked swingmen in all of fantasy.

Green is owned in just under 50 percent (42.8%) of standard ESPN leagues. He will be a great second flex option and will be a decent source of points/triples for the rest of the year. If you need a sharpshooter and some help in three-pointers, don’t hesitate to pick up Green.
