  • McGee has been selected to join the 12-man Team USA roster for the Tokyo Olympics, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Two roster spots opened up for Team USA after Bradley Beal was placed in COVID-19 protocols and Kevin Love withdrew. McGee has been selected to fill one of the spots and would become one of many first-time Olympians on Team USA. With how the current roster has been organized, McGee's elite rim-protection could be a key component that had been missing previously.

  • McGee posted 12 points (6-12 FG), 13 rebounds and two blocks across 24 minutes during Thursday's 114-103 win over Minnesota. McGee looked good in his first start with the Nuggets, joining Nikola Jokic with a double-double in the massive starting lineup. The points and rebounds both marked highs for McGee since joining Denver in late March. If he sticks in the starting lineup for another game or two, he's an intriguing fantasy prospect with two games remaining in the regular season for Denver.

  • McGee will start Thursday's game against Minnesota, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports. McGee is set to make his first start in Denver, alongside Nikola Jokic, while the team deals with various injured players. In his last five games, McGee has averaged 4.6 points on 39.1 percent shooting, 4.2 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game.

  • McGee contributed 10 points (5-7 FG), three rebounds, an assist and a blocked shot across 12 minutes in Monday's 93-89 loss to the Lakers. McGee was greeted pre-game with his 2020 Championship ring in his return to the Staples Center. He displayed decent point-per-minute play in limited action, but McGee's overall value is capped as a reserve.

  • McGee finished with seven points (3-6 FG, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds and one block in 14 minutes during Wednesday's 106-96 victory over the Spurs. Playing in just his second game since rejoining the Nuggets, McGee came within a whisker of recording a double-double. His role is seemingly going to depend on the specific matchup and so projecting his value is next to impossible. He would need an injury to Nikola Jokic to be considered a standard league pickup and given his durability, that seems unlikely, to say the least.
