Eight months after a severe left knee injury, the Memphis Grizzlies veteran Danny Green plans to make his season debut on Feb. 1 against the Portland Trail Blazers.

“What I bring is definitely needed here: perimeter shooting and perimeter defense,” Green told ESPN late Tuesday night. “I think I can bring maturity and help a young team understand what it takes to win. This has been an A-1 organization from top to bottom in handling this entire rehab with me.”
