30-Year-Old ForwardF
Denver Nuggets
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Green begins the next chapter of his career in Denver, where a frontcourt departure created what could be an ideal opening for the veteran floor-spacing big man. The Nuggets pulled off a sign-and-trade deal with the Pistons for Jerami Grant, who'd provided 12.0 points and 38.9 percent three-point shooting last season out of the power forward spot. That development led to the re-signing of veteran Paul Millsap to return to starting duties at the four and created a need for some experienced frontcourt rotation depth that Green is aptly capable of providing. The 30-year-old was a solid presence for the Clippers down low last season, averaging 6.8 points and 6.2 rebounds across 20.7 minutes while draining 38.7 percent of his 3.8 three-point attempts per contest. Green is likely to see a similar allotment of playing time with the 35-year-old Millsap already having logged his fewest minutes (24.3) since the 2007-08 campaign last season, giving the former some value in deep category-based formats for his scoring and rebounding ability.

College/International Summary

Green, an Alabama native, decided to stay home for school. The 6-foot-8 forward moved into the starting lineup as a freshman and remained a starter throughout his four-year Crimson Tide career. As a freshman, Green posted 10.3 points, 7.6 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game. He had five double-doubles, including four in conference play. In his sophomore season, Green became more of a featured offensive performer. He put up 14.1 points and 7.2 rebounds in coach Anthony Grant's first season. Green had seven double-doubles as a junior and averaged a career-high 15.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.1 blocks. The team made the NIT and advanced to the tournament's final round. Back issues limited Green to 26 games as a senior, but the forward provided 14.0 points, 7.4 rebounds and 1.5 blocks. He closed his career in the Top 25 in the SEC in both rebounds and blocks. He went undrafted in the 2012 NBA Draft and while he joined the San Antonio Spurs for that year's NBA Summer League, he didn't make his NBA debut until 2015.

Past Season Summaries
2019

In his first full season with the Clippers, Green appeared in 63 games and averaged 6.8 points and 6.2 rebounds in 20.7 minutes. The stretch-four hit 1.5 threes per game at 38.7 percent and also shot 75.0 percent from the free-throw line. Against the Jazz, during the fifth game of the season, Green scored a season-high 23 points while also posting eight rebounds and one block. On Nov. 13 against the Rockets, Green secured a double-double while recording a season-high 14 rebounds, 14 points, two steals and one block. That performance was one of his seven double-doubles on the season. Three days later in a win over the Hawks, Green swiped a season-high four steals while adding two points, nine rebounds and two assists. Ten days later in a win over the Mavericks, Green blocked a season-high two shots -- reaching that mark again Feb. 1 in a win over the Timberwolves. During a win over the Lakers on Christmas Day, Green dished a season-high three assists, and he'd reach that mark three more times during the season -- all in wins. During the Clippers' first-round playoff series against the Mavericks, Green averaged 4.8 points and 2.5 rebounds while shooting 50.0 percent from the field, 42.9 percent from three and 80.0 percent from the free-throw line. During the following playoff series against the Nuggets, Green averaged 7.1 points and 4.9 rebounds while shooting 60.6 percent from the field, 43.8 percent from three and 75.0 percent from the charity stripe. Arguably his best performance of the postseason was during Game 7 against Denver, where he recorded 11 points (4-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and one steal.

2018

Green began the 2018-19 season in Memphis, where he started his first two games before being forced to miss the next 12 contests with a broken jaw. He returned as a key player in the Grizzlies' bench rotation and averaged 11.7 points and 6.9 rebounds per game over the next 15 matchups. The forward had an outstanding performance on Jan. 12, when he went for season-highs in both points (24) and rebounds (11). Less than a month later, Green was traded to the Clippers, along with teammate Garrett Temple, in exchange for veteran guard Avery Bradley. Green notched no fewer than seven rebounds in 10 of his first 13 contests with the Clippers. While he played mostly off of the bench after the trade, Green made a pair of spot starts in March, including in a blowout win over the Cavaliers on Mar. 30 in which Green had 18 points and 10 rebounds. That game represented his lone double-double in a Clippers uniform. In the postseason, Green logged 23.5 minutes per game in Los Angeles' first-round series against Golden State, and he was in the starting lineup for Games 4 through 6. Green reached double-figures in scoring in four of six games, finishing with averages of 11.0 points and 5.3 rebounds in 23.5 minutes.

2017

Green began the 2017-18 campaign as the Grizzlies' starting power forward. He played only four minutes in the opening game of the season before suffering an ankle injury. Green went on to miss the next 12 contests before returning to action in mid-November. Overall, he played in 55 regular-season games and averaged a career-high 28.0 minutes per contest. He also registered career-best marks in points (10.3), rebounds (8.4) and assists (1.4). Green notched 16 double-doubles on the season, the most of his career. He tied a season high with 21 points against Boston on Feb. 26, adding 11 rebounds. He grabbed 16 boards in a game on three separate occasions, the last of which was a 17-point effort against the Lakers on March 24. Green was slowed by knee soreness late in the season and was held to two points in a game against the Jazz on March 30. That would be the forward's final contest of the campaign as the troublesome knee forced him to miss the Grizzlies' last six games.

2016

Green's role grew substantially in his third NBA season. He moved into the starting lineup full-time and averaged a career-high 27.3 minutes per contest. As a result, he set per-game career highs in points (8.9), rebounds (7.1) and assists (1.1). Green shot 50.0 percent from the field and 80.2 percent from the line, both improvements over his previous campaign. The 6-foot-9 forward also demonstrated a touch from deep for the first time in his career. He drilled 55 three-pointers on the season and shot a healthy 37.9 percent from beyond the arc. Green grabbed a career-high 17 rebounds against the Pelicans on Dec. 5. He topped that mark only three days later, collecting 18 boards in a win over Portland. On Feb. 4, he scored a career-high 29 points while making all 12 of his free-throw attempts in a win over Minnesota. Green tallied 10 double-doubles on the campaign, including a 20-point, 11-rebound effort against Atlanta on March 11. For the second straight season, Memphis played San Antonio in the first round of the playoffs. Green averaged 7.3 points and 3.3 rebounds as the Grizzlies fell to the Spurs in six games.

2015

After bouncing between the D-League and Europe for several seasons, JaMychal Green settled in for his first full NBA campaign in 2015-16. He played in 78 games with the Memphis Grizzlies, averaging 18.5 minutes per contest. The 6-foot-9 forward posted per-game averages of 7.4 points and 4.8 rebounds. He shot 46.5 percent from the field and 75.2 percent from the charity stripe. Green started 15 games during the campaign, averaging 11.9 points and 7.2 rebounds in that role. He tallied seven double-doubles on the season. On March 9, he established a career high with 13 rebounds and scored 17 points against Boston. Two days later, Green tallied a career-best 21 points and grabbed 10 boards in a win over the Pelicans. Overall, he averaged 12.6 points and 6.6 rebounds in March. Green got his first taste of the NBA postseason when Memphis faced San Antonio in the opening round of the playoffs. The second-year forward played in all four games of the series, averaging 18.1 minutes per contest. He posted per-game averages of 6.8 points and 3.8 rebounds.

2014

Green declared for the 2012 NBA Draft but was not selected. He spent the 2012-13 season with the Austin Toros of the D-League, averaging 12.3 points and 8.1 rebounds in 40 games. Green then headed to France for the 2013-14 campaign where he posted per-game averages of 11.8 points and 6.6 rebounds with Chorale Roanne Basket of the Jeep Elite League. The 6-foot-9 forward returned to the United States the following season, spending much of the campaign back with Austin in the D-League. There, he averaged 23.0 points, 10.7 rebounds and 1.6 blocks in 20 games. Green's solid play earned him a 10-day NBA contract with the San Antonio Spurs. In four games with San Antonio, he racked up eight points, six rebounds and two blocked shots. Though the Spurs did not offer him a second contract, Memphis swooped in and added Green to their roster. The University of Alabama product remained with the Grizzlies for the remainder of the season, averaging 2.7 points and 2.0 rebounds across 20 contests.He posted a season-high 13 points and grabbed six rebounds in his lone start of the season against Washington on March 12.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
2015
2014
Green registered career highs in made threes (1.4 per game), three-point shooting percentage (40.3) and steals (0.7) this past season. He also matched his career-best blocks average (0.5), all of this despite seeing a fairly significant reduction in minutes. Green had earned 27.3 and 28.0 minutes per night in 2016-17 and 2017-18, respectively, before being limited to 21.1 per matchup in 2018-19. That said, he did receive a boost in playing time during the playoffs, as Ivica Zubac struggled to keep pace with the Warriors. Across six playoff games, Green recorded averages of 11.0 points (53.5 FG%, 52.2 3P%, 80.0 FT%), 5.3 rebounds, 2.0 threes, 0.8 assists and 0.7 steals in 23.5 minutes. As long as Green spends some time at power forward and thus isn't forced to merely split time at center with Zubac and Montrezl Harrell, he could be a decent source of points, boards and threes. Even so, unless Green logs fairly heavy minutes at the four, he's likely to remain a modest contributor.
Green continued his trend of improving his year-over-year numbers last season, averaging a career-best 10.3 points (on a career-high 8.9 shot attempts), 8.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists across 28.0 minutes over 55 games. Green also attempted to space the floor slightly more than in prior years, establishing a new high-water mark on three-point tries (2.3). The 28-year-old big man improved his presence on the defensive glass as well (5.8 defensive rebounds per contest), and despite battling knee concerns that cost him the last six games of the season, he finished the campaign on a strong note – seven double-digit scoring efforts, including five double-doubles, in his last 11 games. However, with the investment of a fourth overall pick in Michigan State product Jaren Jackson this past June, Green appears destined to head back to a rotational role that comprised his first two-plus pro seasons. That should still equate to a solid allotment of minutes, considering Green’s ability to also fill in at small forward and his valuable scoring and rebounding contributions.
Green averaged 2.7 points, 2.0 rebounds, 0.2 assists, 0.3 steals and 0.2 blocks in seven minutes per game during 20 regular season contests with the Grizzlies in 2014-15, shooting 58 percent from the field and 80 percent from the free-throw line. Before joining the Grizzlies, the 25-year-old forward appeared in 20 games with the D-League Austin Spurs, averaging 23.0 points, 10.7 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.0 steal, and 1.6 blocks in 32 minutes per game while shooting 58 percent from the field, 36 percent from three, and 84 percent from the free-throw line. He was impressive during his brief showing in the 2015 Orlando Summer League, scoring 10 points and swiping one steal in six minutes of play. Green's contract is only partially guaranteed for 2015-16, so his spot is not 100 percent safe. However, his experience and versatility makes it likely the Grizzlies will elect to keep him on the roster. If he can provide spacing and speed without sacrificing strength on the boards, the former D-Leaguer could be in for an increased role this season.
JaMychal Green signed a non-guaranteed with the Spurs this offseason. This is the second time the Spurs have brought Green in for training camp. He was cut during training camp in 2012 and then suffered the same fate with the Los Angeles Clippers in 2013. The outcome will likely be the same this season. Green, a power forward out of Alabama, played for the Spurs' Las Vegas Summer League team, averaging 7.8 points, 6.5 rebounds, 0.7 assists, 0.8 steals, and 0.8 blocks in 16 minutes per game through six games. He came off the bench in all six games. Green is unlikely to make the Spurs roster and thus can be ignored in the vast majority of fantasy leagues.
