McGee is inactive for Wednesday's game against the Raptors, Anthony Slater of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

McGee appears to be a healthy scratch, as the Warriors are opting to go with a smaller bench against a Toronto team down two of its centers. Kevon Looney, Omri Casspi and Jordan Bell will all be active over him.

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

McGee contributed 16 points (6-9 FG, 4-6 FT), one rebound and one block across 13 minutes during a 120-108 win over the Spurs on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

McGee received the start with Zaza Pachulia (heel) sidelined and got hot for 16 points despite receiving limited playing time. He didn't contribute much of anything besides the points and nice field goal percentage. If Pachulia missed Game 4, McGee could be in line for a similar workload

McGee is expected to get the start at center for Saturday's Game 3 against the Spurs, Anthony Slater of the San Jose mercury News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Zaza Pachulia has been officially listed as out for the contest, so McGee figures to see a relatively healthy workload as a result. The veteran big man has averaged 9.8 points, 5.2 boards, and 0.9 blocks across 16.4 minutes in 10 starts this season. Expect him to see a similar workload Saturday.

McGee contributed 15 points (7-7 FG, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, four blocks and one steal across 13 minutes in Golden State's 110-81 win over the TrailBlazers.

EDGE Analysis

Although he only logged 13 minutes on the floor, McGee was extra special in a short time, highlighting his entry off the bench with an alley-oop and two dunks in the first quarter. Since the All-Star break, McGee has provided a great spark to the Warriors and has become a crowd favorite, as the crowd in Oakland roared when he entered the lineup. While Zaza Pachulia is usually the Warriors' starting center, McGee will get his share of minutes down the stretch and will be an intriguing DFS option when the Warriors are expected to run away with a game like they did on Wednesday. The Warriors will head to Portland on Saturday and attempt to stretch their series lead to 3-0.

McGee tallied 11 points (5-5 FG, 1-3 FT), six rebounds and one block over 15 minutes in Monday's 105-99 loss to the Jazz.

EDGE Analysis

McGee is enjoying a productive month, as he's now posted double-digit scoring efforts in three of five April contests. He's been effective on the glass as well in those games, hauling in a total of 19 rebounds over that span. McGee also has at least one block in eight straight games and should have a modest but secure role in the Warriors' postseason rotation.

McGee managed 16 points (8-10 FG, 0-1 FT), seven rebounds and one block over 16 minutes in Saturday's 123-101 win over the Pelicans.

EDGE Analysis

McGee was highly efficient while scoring a point per minute on the court, posting his third double-digit scoring effort over the last five games in the process. The nine-year veteran can provide the occasional productive outing in his limited role off the bench, but the fact that he rarely exceeds the 15-minute threshold puts an overall cap on his upside.

McGee ended up with 13 points (6-10 FG, 1-3 FT), four rebounds and five blocked shots over 11 minutes in Friday's 107-98 win against the Rockets.

EDGE Analysis

McGee was busier than usual with Kevon Looney (hip) on the shelf. Even though he had a fairly impressive stat line, he won't log enough minutes to help most fantasy owners outside of deeper leagues.
