2021 Fantasy Outlook
A few years from now, it wouldn't be shocking if Green emerges as the best player from the 2021 draft. But in terms of immediate fantasy impact, he's in a tier just below Cade Cunningham. A natural, polished scorer, Green will be the favorite to lead all rookies in points per game. He shined in three Summer League games, and his G League Ignite numbers imply that he'll carry a high three-point attempt rate. While that will likely lead to a relatively pedestrian field goal percentage, that's par for the course when it comes to rookie guards. In terms of non-scoring stats, Green averaged 4.1 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.5 steals in 15 G League games (32.0 MPG), so while points will be his calling card, he can still offer some non-scoring production. The biggest question for Green is where he'll fall in the hierarchy for a rebuilding Rockets team that features a borderline-All-Star in Christian Wood and a high-volume gunner in Kevin Porter Jr. However, Green's development should take precedence over Wood and Porter.

Set for more opportunity
GHouston Rockets
September 14, 2021
Green may be in line for a larger role this season after the Rockets announced that John Wall will not play in any games for the team, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
The No. 2 overall pick was already set to be a key contributor for the rebuilding Rockets, but with Wall now out of the picture, he'll join Kevin Porter Jr. and Christian Wood as the team's clear top three offensive options. Both Wood and Porter Jr. are high-usage players, so Green could open the year as the No. 3 of that trio, but he'll see action at point guard, shooting guard and small forward during what projects to be a high-minute rookie season. Green's fantasy profile will likely be shaded heavily toward scoring and three-pointers, but he's one of the handful of first-year players worth targeting with a later-round pick in fantasy leagues.
