Top JaVale McGee News

  • Suns' JaVale McGee: Removed from injury report

    McGee (ankle) is no longer listed on the injury report ahead of Saturday's game against the Nets.

    McGee was initially listed as questionable due to an ankle injury, but he's since been removed from the report and should be available in his usual role as the backup to Deandre Ayton. In Friday's blowout win over the Knicks, McGee posted six points, eight boards, a block and a steal in 14 minutes.

  • Suns' JaVale McGee: Considered questionable

    McGee is listed as questionable for Saturday's matchup with the Nets due to right ankle soreness.

    McGee's status Saturday will presumably be determined by how his ankle is feeling closer to tip-off. With Frank Kaminsky (knee) already ruled out, Jalen Smith would likely be in line for backup center minutes behind Deandre Ayton should the veteran big man get ruled out.

  • Suns' JaVale McGee: Strong double-double

    McGee registered 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-2 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block over 20 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's 120-115 win over the Cavaliers.

    McGee has carved out a nice role in Phoenix, scoring double-digit points in five straight games. Although barely seeing 20 minutes per night, the recent loss of Frank Kaminsky (knee, indefinitely) could gradually increase his role further.

  • Suns' JaVale McGee: Solid per-minute performance

    McGee provided 14 points (7-9 FG), eight rebounds and one steal over 15 minutes during Monday's 115-111 victory over the Spurs.

    McGee gave Deandre Ayton some relief in every quarter and made an impact with every appearance. He was especially effective during three minutes in the fourth quarter, where he drilled three shots and recorded a key rebound. His limited usage caps his fantasy potential, but he still has some value in deep leagues.

  • Suns' JaVale McGee: Heads back to bench

    McGee is coming off the bench for Monday's game against Minnesota.

    McGee started each of his team's last five contests due to Deandre Ayton's (lower leg) absence, but he'll revert back to a bench role with Ayton now cleared to return. McGee is averaging just 14.7 minutes per contest coming off the bench this season (six games).

  • Suns' JaVale McGee: Double-doubles as starter

    McGee provided 19 points (9-12 FG, 1-1 FT), 14 rebounds, one assist, three blocks and one steal across 25 minutes during Sunday's 115-89 win over Houston.

    McGee got the starting nod over the injured Deandre Ayton (lower leg) and certainly made his presence felt on both ends of the court. The veteran big man might be a decent streaming option while Ayton remains out, though he'd move back to the bench as soon as the former is able to get back on the court -- something that might happen as early as Monday against the Timberwolves.

  • Suns' JaVale McGee: Flirts with double-double in win

    McGee compiled 14 points (6-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt), eight rebounds and one assist in 16 minutes during Wednesday's 119-109 victory over the Trail Blazers.

    McGee continues to start for the Suns, with Deandre Ayton (lower leg) on the sidelines. So far, it has been mildly successful from both a reality and a fantasy perspective. Frank Kaminsky is going to get all the accolades after this victory, and rightfully so, but McGee has been a steady source of rebounds and efficient scoring. Managers who picked him would have liked to see more on the defensive end but really, you take what you can get. As long as Ayton is out, McGee should continue to have some backend value.

  • Suns' JaVale McGee: Starting Saturday

    McGee will start Saturday's matchup against the Hawks, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    With Deandre Ayton (lower leg) out, McGee will draw his second start of the season. In his first start, he posted 18 points, five rebounds and one block in 19 minutes.

  • Suns' JaVale McGee: Returning to bench

    McGee is not starting Thursday versus Houston.

    Deandre Ayton (lower leg) is healthy, meaning McGee will be his backup again. The latter remains unlikely to attempt 10 field goals and score 18 points like he did starting Tuesday versus New Orleans.

  • Suns' JaVale McGee: Scores 18 in spot start

    McGee finished Tuesday's win over the Pelicans with 18 points (7-10 FG, 4-5 FT), five boards and a block.

    Starting in place of the injured Deandre Ayton (lower leg), McGee fared well as a pick-and-roll partner with Chris Paul, notching his highest scoring total since March 22 of last season. When Ayton is healthy, McGee typically sees 12-to-18 minutes off the bench, so he's really only an option in deeper fantasy formats.

  • Suns' JaVale McGee: Starting for injured Ayton

    McGee will start Tuesday's matchup against the Pelicans, Kellan Olson of reports.

    With Deandre Ayton (lower leg) missing his first game of the season, McGee will get the start. In 14.4 minutes per game, he's averaging 8.4 points and 6.8 rebounds, and he figures to see more time Tuesday.

  • Suns' JaVale McGee: Set to sign one-year deal with Suns

    McGee and the Suns agreed to terms Monday on a one-year, $5 million contract, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

    After winning a title with the Lakers in the bubble, McGee split last season between the Cavaliers and Nuggets, appearing in 46 games and averaging 7.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.2 blocks in 14.7 minutes. He'll add insurance at center for the Suns, who struggled to find a capable backup to Deandre Ayton after rookie Jalen Smith proved unprepared to handle a consistent role.
