Gerald Green was quiet in Eric Bledsoe's return on Wednesday against the Cavs, scoring eight points on 4-of-14 shooting with two rebounds, two steals and one block in 31 minutes.
The Scoop:Green missed all six of his threes and fouled out in 31 minutes of action, but this is a pretty good indicator of what his workload will look like, defensive stats aside. He's not going to go away entirely but he'll probably see a couple of rounds fall off of his value.
By Will Robinson LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - With his slight 6-foot-3, 190-pound frame, Goran Dragic and his boyish facial hair are unassuming. But when he's on the court, the 27-year-old Slovenian is one of the NBA's shiftiest and most explosive players. This season, with the Phoenix Suns battling for a Western Conference playoff spot late in an NBA season that many of the team's fans originally had low expectations for, Dragic has proved to be one of the league's premier, tenacious guards. "Sometimes, he's so aggressive, and he does that early on, but he does that to get the defense drawn to him," said Suns guard Gerald Green.
The Scoop:Head coach Jeff Hornacek has left open the possibility that Bledsoe will retake the starting SG job from Green at some point, but initially the Suns will ease him back into action off the bench. Bledsoe's engine is stuck in hyper-drive and he can put up nice numbers in limited minutes, so patient fantasy owners might as well plug him into active lineups.
