Jalen Green unhappy with role?

0 4
There’s some buzz going around that Jalen Green is frustrated with how he’s being used and how he’s not a sixth man. Can you confirm this? — Isaac D. This has become such a divisive topic among Rockets fans and honestly, some of the reactions have been unwarranted. But let’s try to unpack this. Green’s frustrations this season have been clear. I was in the building last Friday for one of Houston’s more impressive home wins of the season over the Phoenix Suns. Green was glued to the bench for the entire fourth quarter. He didn’t look happy. This isn’t the first, second or third time that he’s not been on the floor in critical moments. It probably won’t be the last, either.

Jalen Green (questionable – illness) added to #Rockets injury report for tonight’s game at Suns. He’s the only Rockets player to play in all 58 games thus far this season. @SportsTalk790 – 1:45 PM

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander makes Jalen Green pay for sagging off him, a living color example of him forcing the defender to be wrong. You pick SGA too high and he has blown past you like a cyclone. – 10:58 PM

More on this storyline

I’ve also seen him have several conversations with Şengün, VanVleet and Udoka about in-game schematics and know he wants to find a groove. He just hasn’t been able to do so consistently, which leads to Udoka going with other options to close games. On the whole, Green’s decision-making has improved since last season. Of course, there are still instances where he drives into oncoming traffic and his handle still needs some tightening, but as far as making the right reads the third-year guard has gotten better. That’s a natural development playing with better players around you. -via The Athletic / February 29, 2024
