2021 Fantasy Outlook
Green continued to cement his role as a backup frontcourt option last season. He saw 19.3 minutes per game with the Nuggets and averaged 8.1 points and 4.8 rebounds, leading to a per-game fantasy rank of 253. His role should be relatively stagnant this season. He figures to see minutes at both frontcourt spots and will be competing for reserve minutes with Jeff Green, Zeke Nnaji and Bol Bol. The departure of Paul Millsap could lead to marginally more minutes for Green, but it likely won't be enough to make him relevant in standard fantasy leagues. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

JaMychal Green was born in Montgomery, Alabama, to Rita and Alonzo Green. He has a sister, Kemeche, and a brother who passed away when JaMychal was two years old. Green attended St. Jude Educational Institute in Montgomery and led the school to the Class A State Championship in 2006 and 2008. He was voted MVP of the tournament in 2006. Green was named 2008 Alabama Mr. Basketball, a three-time Alabama Sportswriters Association Player of the Year and a 2008 McDonald's All-American. He also played for the USA National U18 Team in Argentina at the 2008 FIBA Americas Under-18 Championship. Green founded Forever My Brother's Keeper, a non-profit foundation aimed at helping children in the Montgomery area, in 2015. Learn more about Green by following him on Twitter (@Jmyke1) and on Instagram (@roadtoriches_0). 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.

October 20, 2021
Green (ankle) is not on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's game against Phoenix.

Green was held out of the Nuggets' final two preseason games due to a sore ankle, but he's moved past the issue and should be at full strength for Opening Night.

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.
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.
