Player News
  • McGee tested negative for coronavirus Thursday, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports. Haynes notes that McGee has asthma and dealt with pneumonia last season, so it makes sense that there was some added concern in regard to his vulnerability. He's tested negative but will still need to self-quarantine for a period of time given that two unnamed teammates tested positive.

  • McGee had five points (2-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt), 11 rebounds, three steals and a block over 21 minutes of action in Friday's 113-103 win over Milwaukee McGee recorded double-digit rebounds for the first time since mid-December. The owner of a top-40 player efficiency rating, McGee has remained productive and simply exists in the shadow of Anthony Davis. Davis is likely to begin getting more rest mixed into his schedule, which would open windows for McGee to boom. He has fantasy-playoff sleeper potential.

  • McGee contributed eight points (4-6 FG), six blocks and four rebounds in 24 minutes during Sunday's 122-114 win over the Pelicans. The six blocks tie his season-high. McGee is producing top 125 value in nine-category leagues because of his ability to rack up those blocks, in addition to his strong 64.8 percent shooting from the field, and lack of turnovers. The 32-year old is an option for fantasy teams that are desperate for blocks and field-goal percentage, but he'll provide little to fantasy rosters other than that.

  • McGee managed four points (2-3 FG), three rebounds, one steal and one block across 13 minutes Wednesday in the Lakers' 120-116 overtime win over the Nuggets. Since returning from a two-game absence due to an illness at the end of January, McGee is averaging only 6.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 0.9 blocks in 15.6 minutes over a seven-game stretch. McGee remains locked in as the starting center, but backup Dwight Howard has clearly been the more valuable fantasy option of the two lately, outproducing the former in each of the past five games. Perhaps most notably, Howard has received at least 10 more minutes than McGee in both of the past two contests, and that sort of playing-time disparity could become more commonplace if Howard continues to thrive.

  • McGee (illness) will play Friday against the Trail Blazers. As expected, McGee will take the court following a two-game absence due to an illness. He'll presumably move back into the starting lineup over Dwight Howard.
