McGee will start Friday's game against Detroit, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports. In the absence of Zaza Pachulia, the Warriors will go with McGee at center, and he'll draw a tough matchup with Detroit's Andre Drummond. The 29-year-old typically plays a reduced role off the bench and is yet to play more than 15 minutes in a single game this season.
McGee will start at center Monday against the Pelicans, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports. With Zaza Pachulia out, the Warriors will pivot to McGee, who hasn't been a part of the regular rotation of late, playing just six minutes over the last three games. He'll be set for an increased role Monday, though the Warriors will likely go small for much of the game, particularly in the absence of Anthony Davis (pelvis).
McGee tallied two points (1-3 FG, 0-2 FT), four rebounds and two assists across nine minutes in Friday's 117-106 preseason win over the Kings. McGee will once again serve as Zaza Pachulia's primary backup at center, a role in which he logged 9.6 minutes across 77 games last season. The 29-year-old big man certainly proved efficient on many occasions while coming off the bench, logging nine double-digit scoring efforts in no more than 18 minutes of playing time over his last 19 regular-season contests. Given the typically modest minutes Pachulia plays, McGee should have ample opportunity to provide solid secondary production once again in the coming campaign.
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.
