McGee scored eight points (4-8 FG) while adding nine rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 21 minutes during Tuesday's 117-87 loss to the Jazz. Making his first start of the season in place of Andre Drummond (Achilles), McGee came within a basket and a board of his first double-double of the year and did a good job helping to contain Rudy Gobert, who managed only four points on 2-for-7 shooting. Unfortunately, the rest of the Cavs' lineup got blown away by the Jazz. Drummond's Achilles bruise isn't considered serious, so McGee could return to his usual bench role when Cleveland takes the court again Friday against the Knicks.
McGee is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against Utah, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports. McGee is starting for the injured Andre Drummond who's out with an Achilles issue. This will be the veteran's first start this year, and Larry Nance is presumed to provide backup duties to McGee on Tuesday.
McGee had 13 points (5-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, one block and one steal in 17 minutes Thursday at Memphis. The 32-year-old is averaging 17.0 minutes off the bench this season and has now put up double-digit points five times. McGee is averaging 9.3 points, 6.6 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 17.0 minutes and should continue to operate as the backup center behind starter Andre Drummond.
McGee totaled 14 points (6-11 FG, 2-5 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, two steals and a blocked shot across 25 minutes in Saturday's 96-91 win over the Hawks. McGee produced his best stat line as a Cavalier in the win. With Kevin Love (calf) sidelined, McGee is expected to play a major role in shoring up the interior, but his primary role on Saturday was to relieve Andre Drummond, who struggled in the first half. Managers in need of center help could do a lot worse than McGee, who should enjoy a more significant role for the next two weeks.
McGee totaled seven points (3-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-6 FT), 13 rebounds and one block in a loss to Indiana on Thursday. McGee struggled to convert from both the field and the charity stripe, but he was a monster on the boards, grabbing 13 rebounds in only 14 minutes. The playing time was partly impacted by McGee's five fouls, though he came into the contest averaging only 16.5 minutes per game. McGee figures to post a much higher field-goal percentage most nights, but he may not play enough to be a viable fantasy option.
