McGee (illness) played nine minutes in a 127-119 win over the Nuggets on Monday, producing nine points (4-4 FG, 1-3 FT), four rebounds and one steal.
McGee had been listed as questionable heading into the evening with an illness, but he was cleared to suit up prior to game time and ended up seeing his typical workload off the bench. The veteran center has been included in coach Steve Kerr's rotation in each of the Warriors' previous 23 games, but he's averaging a meager 6.5 points and 3.1 rebounds in 9.4 minutes per game during that stretch. Those are strong per-minute numbers, but until McGee routinely sees closer to 20 minutes, he'll struggle to carry any fantasy value.
McGee supplied 15 points (6-7 FG, 3-3 FT), three rebounds and one block across nine minutes in a 119-113 win over the Pistons on Friday.
Since the Pistons rolled out two traditional centers in Andre Drummond and Aron Baynes, McGee was able to see some run in a competitive matchup and made the most of the opportunity, falling just two points shy of matching his season-high scoring total. While McGee has been a solid reserve option at center for the Warriors and has surpassed Anderson Varejao and Damian Jones on the depth chart, he's not seeing enough playing time to make much of a splash in the fantasy realm.
McGee came off the bench and produced 11 points (5-5 FG, 1-3 FT), five rebounds, one steal and one block across 11 minutes in a 135-90 win over the Trail Blazers on Saturday.
After starting the previous two games at center, McGee headed back to the bench following the return of Zaza Pachulia (wrist), but still continued to score in efficient fashion. However, he saw a five-minute reduction in minutes with the move to the second unit and might not have even seen that much time had the game not devolved into a blowout by halftime. McGee could cut into Pachulia's workload a little more if he continues to thrive in his limited opportunities off the bench, but it will still be exceedingly difficult for him to carve out fantasy utility in a backup role.
McGee scored 17 points (8-10 FG, 1-3 FT) along with two rebounds, one assist and one blocked shot over 16 minutes in Golden State;s 103-90 win of the Knicks.
McGee was a highlight reel of alley-oop dunks, leading to his season-high scoring total on a night he out-pointed Stephen Curry (eight points) and Kevin Durant (15). He's been the most productive fill-in for Zaza Pachulia (wrist), who missed his fourth straight game Thursday, and will continue to start for as long as needed. Pachulia participated in Thursday's shootaround after an MRI on Wednesday came back negative, so it would appear he's nearing a return. That could come as soon as Saturday against Portland.
McGee scored nine points (4-5 FG, 1-2 FT) along with five rebounds over 16 minutes in Tuesday's 113-109 win over the Pelicans.
McGee was the starting center du jour Tuesday with Zaza Pachulia (wrist) missing a third straight contest. The Warriors have used Anderson Varejao, Kevon Looney and now McGee to fill in for Pachulia, each playing roughly the same amount of minutes. The Warriors targeted McGee with several lob passes, mostly with success, a new dimension to an offense stocked with elite outside shooters. Pachulia is scheduled for an MRI on Wednesday, which suggests his absence could extend a bit longer, perhaps into Thursday night's home game against the Knicks.
