News: Green was a healthy DNP-coach's decision Friday, but he's not out of the rotation. Coach Jeff Hornacek was simply playing the matchups, the Arizona Republic reports.
Impact: Green is on the trip and expected to play Saturday against the Warriors. It sounds like this was just a circumstantial situation that left Green on the outside of the rotation for one night. The Suns won the game over the Bulls, making any coaching choices the correct move in hindsight. Over his last five games coming into Friday, Green averaged 10.2 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.2 steals, and 2.0 three-pointers in 18 minutes per game, but he was also shooting just 37 percent from the field.
