JaVale McGee C PHI 14 Days

McGee was traded from the Nuggets to the 76ers on Thursday, Yahoo! Sports reports.The deal is ultimately a salary dump for the Nuggets, who will also send a 2015 protected first-round pick, which is owned via Oklahoma City, to Philadelphia. The Sixers will send back the rights to Cenk Akyol, a 2005 draftee who is unlikely to ever transition to the NBA. McGee is owed $11.3 million this season and $12 million in 2015-16, and it's unclear whether the Sixers are content to take on that salary, or if they will look to buy McGee out. In conjunction with the Arron Afflalo deal earlier Thursday, Denver has now created roughly $18 million in trade exceptions. As far as McGee's value is concerned, he should have an opportunity to see significant minutes in an underwhelming Philadelphia frontcourt, assuming the Sixers keep him around. That said, he's played in only 22 games over the past season-and-a-half, so his health may ultimately dictate how much fantasy value he holds down the stretch.

McGee (illness) practiced Sunday and is expected to play against the Thunder on Monday, the Denver Post reports.

McGee has been battling flu-like symptoms but is apparently feeling well enough to take the court Monday. Although, he's only played in three games since Nov. 23 and won't likely have a significant role in combating the Thunder.

McGee (illness) will sit out the Nuggets' next two games, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports.

McGee is apparently dealing with a fairly serious illness and has been sent back to Denver to recover. That means he'll sit out Wednesday in Boston, as well as Friday in Detroit, before likely returning to the court Monday when the Nuggets host Oklahoma City. In two games since returning from a lower-leg injury, McGee has scored 10 points and grabbed six rebounds in a total of 31 minutes.

McGee is dealing with an illness and will miss Tuesday's game, the Denver Post's Chris Dempsey reports.

He may be sent home to recover from the illness rather than stay with the team, so it seems highly unlikely that he plays in Wednesday's game either. Kenneth Faried and Darrell Arthur are also ill, but McGee seems to be the sickest player on the team.

McGee (lower leg) came off the bench in his first game since Dec. 5, and played 15 minutes, scoring two points (1-2 FG) and grabbing five boards.

Despite having a bad game Thursday, Jusuf Nurkic will likely stay the starter at center even though McGee will continue to see more playing time. In just 14 games this season, all off the bench, McGee is averaging 5.8 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.1 blocks. Don't expect him to stay healthy, either. He's combined to play just 19 games between the past two season up until this point.

McGee (lower leg) will be available off the bench again Thursday, the Denver Post reports.

McGee (leg) didn't get onto the court during Wednesday's win over the Pelicans.

Nuggets coach Brian Shaw cited a lack of practice time as the reason for keeping McGee out of the lineup. Denver plays again Thursday against the Grizzlies and Saturday against the Hornets, however, and the need to give the Nuggets' other bigs a breather should get McGee onto the court, even if it's just in a limited role.

McGee (lower leg) will be active for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans, the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Chris Dempsey reports.

It has been a long time since we saw McGee in game action, but now that he is back, the expectation should be that he sees 10-20 minutes. Based on his shot-blocking ability, he should be monitored in most full-season leagues, but owners in daily formats should look elsewhere for production Wednesday.

McGee (lower leg) could return to the court Wednesday in New Orleans, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports.

McGee has been nearing a return for quite some time, and it appears he's finally ready to get back on the court. Coach Brian Shaw said he'll make a decision this afternoon regarding McGee's status for Wednesday's game, but if he does not play Wednesday then he will definitely return Thursday against the Grizzlies. McGee has played just one game since Nov. 23 due to soreness and muscle aggravation in his leg, on which he had surgery last season.
