Danny Green's Stats: Los Angeles Lakers VS Denver Nuggets

Los Angeles Lakers guard Danny Green started in Monday's lineup against the Denver Nuggets. By halftime of Los Angeles Lakers game against the Denver Nuggets on Monday, that was already the case again. In 13 minutes of action with the starters, Green had put up zero points on 0-of-5 shooting from the field and 0-of-2 shooting from 3-point range. In fact, the only counting stat he had amassed was one assist. Through the Lakers' first six seeding games (Green only suited up for five of them), the two-time NBA champion averaged only 6.6 points in 22.8 minutes per game, shooting 40 percent from the field and a dismal 4-for-20 (20 percent) from 3-point range. Though he came out and made his first long-range attempt of the second half on Monday night, Green's performance in the Orlando bubble has been jarring. With Avery Bradley not participating in the league restart and Rajon Rondo still working his way back, the Lakers need Green to spread the floor and help hold things down on the perimeter as the rangy, 3-and-D wing he's been for most of his underrated career. Previously, he didn't play in Saturday's game against the Indiana Pacers because of a sore right hip (injury). He was previously sidelined by hip soreness before the NBA's COVID-19 hiatus.
