McGary was suspended for five games Friday for violating the NBA's drug policy, Royce Young of ESPN reports. Fighting injuries, McGary has struggled to find a consistent spot in the Thunder's rotation since joining the league two years ago. This suspension certainly won't help the 24-year-old's cause heading into his third NBA season, as after serving his suspension, McGary will have to earn his way back into back into the rotation of the fairly crowded Oklahoma City frontcourt.
McGary (coach's decision) was inactive for Monday's 108-102 Game 1 win over the Warriors. McGary appears to be firmly entrenched as the Thunder's 14th or 15th man, meaning that he'll be inactive for the rest of the playoffs so long as the team doesn't lose any players to injury. The big man's last appearance with the Thunder came all the way back on March 18.
McGary remains inactive for Thursday's Game 3 against the Mavericks, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports. McGary, who took a leave of absence from the team near the end of the regular season, will not dress for the third consecutive game, and he'll be joined in street clothes by veteran center Nazr Mohammed. Josh Huestis will be active as the Thunder's 13th man.
McGary (personal) has rejoined the Thunder after being away from the team for nearly two weeks, Royce Young of ESPN reports. McGary took a leave of absence from the team near the end of the regular season but has not revealed his reasons behind the decision. The second-year forward was on the bench in street clothes Monday night and was back at practice Tuesday working on post moves with Oklahoma City's other big men. It's unclear whether he'll be available for Thursday's Game 3, but coach Billy Donovan did not intimate that McGary's absence would result in any sort of disciplinary action on the team's end. "He looks great," Donovan said. "I'm really happy for him that he's back and worked through whatever he needed to work through."
McGary (personal) was unavailable for Tuesday's 102-98 overtime loss to the Spurs, McGary has been away from the team for the last several days to attend to a personal matter, but the Thunder haven't provided any indication when he might be back. The second-year forward hasn't been a part of the Thunder's rotation at any point this season, logging just 20 appearances on the campaign and averaging 1.3 points and 0.9 rebounds over 3.6 minutes.
