Shaw: Nuggets C McGee should 'accept unique gifts'
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Brian Shaw is seeking to get Nuggets center JaVale McGee in the groove. McGee, who has dealt with a stress fracture in his left leg, has been unproductive in his last seven games with just 22 points on 7 of 18 shooting.

But Shaw believes there's more to McGee's struggles than the effects of working his way back from injury. "We've talked to him extensively," Shaw told the Denver Post. "What I really want him to do is just accept the unique gifts God has given him - his length, his athleticism - for that size, and just impact the game, just take his mind off everything else. But just think about defense and how he can impact the game defensively, changing shots, blocking shots, getting rebounds and clogging up the middle for us. And I think everything else will fall in line for him."

McGee has been on a playing-time restriction. He is averaging about 12 minutes per game. Shaw is hoping that McGee puts his offensive game aside for a while.

"I think sometimes he wants to come in and show us and everybody else that he can post up and he can be an offensive force," Shaw said. "And I think that's where he gets himself in trouble from time to time."

Minute restrictions remain for Nuggets' JaVale McGee, JJ Hickson
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

While the Nuggets’ Nate Robinson and Danilo Gallinari recently had their minute restrictions removed, the Nuggets have not indicated changing the minute restrictions on center JaVale McGee and forward JJ Hickson, according to the Denver Post.

McGee is making his way back from a stress fracture in his left leg and is averaging 14.4 minutes per game. He has yet to play more than 20 minutes in a game this season.

Hickson suffered a torn ACL in March and made his season debut during Sunday’s 116-100 loss to Portland. Despite only playing 15 minutes, Hickson almost recorded a double-double with eight points and 10 rebounds.

Minutes restrictions still in place for Nuggets surgery players
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Nuggets coach Brian Shaw told reporters that the time restrictions of Danilo Gallinari (knee), JaVale McGee (leg) and Nate Robinson (knee) -- all whom have had surgeries -- will remain intact for now, according to the Denver Post.

"That hasn't changed," Shaw said. "We'll just play it by ear as it goes."

Gallinari played 18 minutes on opening night, followed by 20 against the Thunder on Saturday. McGee also played 20 minutes Saturday, after logging only nine on Wednesday. Robinson has combined for 19 minutes through the first two games.

Nuggets' JaVale McGee questionable for season opener
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Nuggets center JaVale McGee is a question mark for the regular-season opener, the Denver Post reports.

"He still may be able to go when the season starts," coach Brian Shaw said. "But I’m just judging that based on everybody else so far has not had any soreness, has not had any relapses or taken any backward steps. He’s the only one that’s feeling any pain at all. So that’s why I’m still a little cautious with him. But the other guys look strong, their tests have come back (well), and if you ask them they are ready to go. I think we’re holding them back more than anything else."

McGee underwent season-ending surgery in February to repair a stress fracture in his left leg. Shaw also said that the soreness McGee is battling is "pretty natural, he’s going to be sore and then he’ll take a day (off) and the soreness will go away and then he’ll do a little bit more the next time."
