9. Falling: Josh Green

On Thursday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Josh Green went down with a nasty ankle sprain and was in serious pain. Green can't catch a break with injuries, as he missed time earlier in the year with an elbow injury, and this ankle injury came at the worst possible time.

The Mavs were finally starting to build some continuity with their new-look squad, and losing a key contributor in Green was not ideal.

This season for Dallas, Green is averaging 8.5 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 0.8 steals per game while shooting 49.3 percent from the field and 40.1 percent from downtown. These numbers are extremely similar to his numbers from last season, and inconsistency continues to plague his young career.

Green has had stretches where he has looked like an everyday starter, and he has had other stretches where he looks as if he can't contribute much. He has scored in double-digits just twice in the last 13 games, and he has had five or fewer points in five of those games.

You never know what you're going to get from Green offensively, but his hustle and energy are always high. Green is always one of the first players diving onto the floor for a loose ball, and his ability to full-court press is excellent.

Green is still young and has tons of potential, but his stock has been falling latey.
