Description: Denver center JaVale McGee underwent leg surgery on Thursday. SOURCE: Ken Berger, CBS Sports
Insight: This surgery is of the season-ending variety. McGee will conclude the 2013-14 campaign with averages of 7.0 ppg, 3.4 rpg and 1.4 bpg in five appearances. J.J. Hickson will continue to start at center for the slumping Nuggets (five-game losing streak).
 
2/15/2014 3:40:00 PM
Description: The Nuggets will decide by March 1st if JaVale McGee will need surgery on his injured leg. SOURCE: Denver Post
Insight: McGee has been out with a stress fracture since early November. Undergoing surgery would almost certainly end his season. Even if McGee does make it back this year, he probably won't be a hot waiver wire pickup.
 
2/6/2014 6:52:00 PM
Description: Denver center Javale McGee is still dealing with a stress fracture in his left tibia and might miss the rest of the season. SOURCE: Adrian Wojnarowski, Yahoo Sports
Insight: McGee hasn't played since November 8th. If his season is indeed over, McGee will close out the 2013-14 campaign with averages of 7.0 ppg, 3.4 rpg and 1.4 bpg in five appearances.
 
1/23/2014 10:14:00 AM
Description: Nuggets center Javale McGee (stress fracture of the left tibia) has just begun working on an elliptical machine.
Insight: McGee isn't practicing yet so we know he's still a long way off. He's averaging 7.0 ppg and 3.4 rpg this season and his primary fantasy value has always been his shot-blocking ability.
 
1/13/2014 12:01:00 PM
Description: We have heard little concerning the return of Nuggets center Javale McGee (stress fracture of the left tibia).
Insight: McGee isn't practicing yet so we know he's still a long way off. He doesn't give much to fantasy owners except at the defensive end where he has blocked two shots a game average over the past three seasons. He's averaging 7.0 ppg and 3.4 rpg this season.
 
11/10/2013 4:52:00 PM
Description: Nuggets center Javale McGee suffered a stress fracture of the left tibia and is out indefinitely.
Insight: McGee doesn't give much to fantasy owners except at the defensive end where he has blocked two shots a game average over the past three seasons. He's averaging 7.0 ppg and 3.4 rpg this season.
 
11/9/2013 2:32:00 PM
Description: Nuggets center Javale McGee has played just 16 minutes per game this season.
Insight: McGee's lack of playing time in 2012-13 reportedly was one of the reasons why George Karl was fired after the season. However, McGee has played even fewer minutes this season despite starting all five games.
 
6/8/2013 5:55:00 PM
Description: JaVale McGee should play a bigger role next season when the Nuggets hire a new coach. SOURCE: ESPN.com
Insight: Denver's front office didn't think McGee got enough playing time in 2012-13 and apparently that's one of the reasons why head coach George Karl isn't coming back next season. For what it's worth, McGee averaged 9.1 ppg, 4.8 rpg and 2.0 bp in 79 regular season contests.
 
3/28/2013 9:45:00 AM
Description: Nuggets center JaVale McGee made 10-of-11 from the field as part of a 21-point night Wednesday against the Spurs. He added 11 rebounds, two steals and three blocks in 26 minutes.
Insight: The 26 minutes were the most McGee has played since Feb. 13. He's averaging just 16 mpg in March but still has 1.9 block per game this month.
 
2/23/2013 10:17:00 PM
Description: Nuggets center JaVale McGee had 17 points, six rebounds and three blocks while shooting 8-of-10 ... in just 17 minutes Saturday against the Bobcats.
Insight: C'mon George Karl. Give this guy more minutes so fantasy owners don't go insane.
 
2/13/2013 6:44:00 PM
Description: Nuggets center JaVale McGee will play through a left leg injury Wednesday against Brooklyn.
Insight: Consistency isn't the first word that comes to mind when talking about McGee but the potential is there. Sunday against Boston, McGee blew up for 16 rebounds and three blocks. Of course, he followed that up with just one rebound Tuesday against the Raptors.
 
2/13/2013 11:37:00 AM
Description: Denver center JaVale McGee aggravated his leg injury Tuesday against Toronto and is questionable for Wednesday's game against Brooklyn.
Insight: McGee is listed as day-to-day with left tibia soreness, the same condition that caused him to miss three straight games a couple of weeks ago. Kosta Koufos will be the beneficiary of more playing time if McGee isn't ready to go.
 
2/12/2013 9:15:00 PM
Description: Nuggets center JaVale McGee aggravated his leg injury Tuesday against Toronto.
Insight: McGee is day-to-day with left tibia soreness, the same condition that caused him to miss three straight games a couple of weeks ago.
 
2/5/2013 8:49:00 PM
Description: Nuggets center JaVale McGee (10.1 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 1.9 bpg) will return to action Tuesday after missing three games with a bruised shin.
Insight: McGee's value continues to be limited by a minutes restriction. He's averaging 10.1 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.9 blocks in just 19 minutes per game. Kosta Koufos is getting 23 minutes and averaging 8.0 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.5 blocks as the team's starting center.
 
2/5/2013 10:06:00 AM
Description: Denver big man JaVale McGee (10.1 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 1.9 bpg) is expected to return after missing three games due to a left tibia injury.
Insight: Even if McGee plays, he shares time with Kosta Koufos (8.0 ppg, 6.5 rpg) and has only low-end value, at best.
 
2/1/2013 12:12:00 PM
Description: Denver big man JaVale McGee (10.1 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 1.9 bpg) is questionable for Friday's game against New Orleans with a left tibia irritation. His Tuesday MRI showed no stress fracture, but he didn't play on Wednesday.
Insight: Even if McGee plays, he shares time with Kosta Koufos (8.2 ppg, 6.6 rpg) and has only low-end value, at best.
 
1/30/2013 11:05:00 AM
Description: Denver big man JaVale McGee (10.1 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 1.9 bpg) is questionable for Wednesday's game against Houston with a left tibia irritation. His Tuesday MRI showed no stress fracture.
Insight: Even if McGee plays, he shares time with Kosta Koufos (8.2 ppg, 6.6 rpg) and has only low-end value, at best.
 
1/29/2013 9:52:00 AM
Description: Denver big man JaVale McGee is questionable for Wednesday's game against Houston with a left tibia irritation. He's expected to go for an MRI on Tuesday which will tell us more.
Insight: Kosta Koufos and Timofey Mozgov will both see more minutes in McGee's absence.
 
1/28/2013 7:47:00 PM
Description: Denver big man JaVale McGee won't be in action Monday night against Indiana. The Nuggets are calling his injury a case of "left tibia irritation."
Insight: Kosta Koufos and Timofey Mozgov will both see more minutes Monday with McGee on the sidelines. Neither player will be able to match McGee's dominance in the shot blocking department (1.91 bpg, ninth-best in the NBA).
 
1/23/2013 10:28:00 PM
Description: Nuggets center JaVale McGee scored 14 points with one steal and three blocks in just 15:31 Wednesday against Houston.
Insight: McGee's production -- 10.1 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.9 blocks -- is tremendous considering he only plays 19 minutes per game. Nuggets coach George Karl recently said he would likely to get McGee 25 minutes per game but we don't see that happening anytime soon.
