McGee has agreed to re-sign with the Warriors, Chris Haynes of ESPN reports. Though McGee saw just 9.6 minutes per game with the Warriors, he provided a spark off the bench for the team due to his elite length and athleticism. In those minutes, he posted 6.1 points, 3.2 boards and 0.9 blocks per game while shooting 65.2 percent from the field. While he can be avoided in most fantasy formats, there's certainly reason to consider McGee in DFS if starting center Zaza Pachulia happens to be sidelined.
McGee will return to the bench for Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals against the Spurs, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports. McGee was very effective in limited playing time during his Game 3 start, posting 16 points in just 13 minutes while filling in for Zaza Pachulia (heel). While Pachulia remains sidelined, the Warriors will go with a slightly smaller lineup featuring Draymond Green at center and Patrick McCaw at small forward. McGee shouldn't see a huge decrease in minutes despite the move to the bench.
McGee contributed 16 points (6-9 FG, 4-6 FT), one rebound and one block across 13 minutes during a 120-108 win over the Spurs on Saturday. McGee received the start with Zaza Pachulia (heel) sidelined and got hot for 16 points despite receiving limited playing time. He didn't contribute much of anything besides the points and nice field goal percentage. If Pachulia missed Game 4, McGee could be in line for a similar workload
McGee is expected to get the start at center for Saturday's Game 3 against the Spurs, Anthony Slater of the San Jose mercury News reports. Zaza Pachulia has been officially listed as out for the contest, so McGee figures to see a relatively healthy workload as a result. The veteran big man has averaged 9.8 points, 5.2 boards, and 0.9 blocks across 16.4 minutes in 10 starts this season. Expect him to see a similar workload Saturday.
McGee contributed 15 points (7-7 FG, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, four blocks and one steal across 13 minutes in Golden State's 110-81 win over the TrailBlazers. Although he only logged 13 minutes on the floor, McGee was extra special in a short time, highlighting his entry off the bench with an alley-oop and two dunks in the first quarter. Since the All-Star break, McGee has provided a great spark to the Warriors and has become a crowd favorite, as the crowd in Oakland roared when he entered the lineup. While Zaza Pachulia is usually the Warriors' starting center, McGee will get his share of minutes down the stretch and will be an intriguing DFS option when the Warriors are expected to run away with a game like they did on Wednesday. The Warriors will head to Portland on Saturday and attempt to stretch their series lead to 3-0.
