JaVale McGee News
Cleveland Cavaliers center JaVale McGee (illness) is expected to play Sunday against the Toronto Raptors. McGee missed the last game with a non-COVID illness and was questionable coming into the contest before being upgraded to probable. McGee has been playing well lately with Kevin Love (calf) experiencing a setback and should slide back into his backup center role. McGee is only a rebounds and blocks streamer in most formats.
Cleveland Cavaliers center JaVale McGee (illness) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the San Antonio Spurs. McGee must have came down with the illness some time today and there have been no indication this is COVID-19 related. McGee was starting the pick up extra minutes here and there, but was not a serious rotation player outside of being backup center. McGee's roughly 15 minutes per game should be dispersed between Larry Nance Jr. and Jarrett Allen against the Spurs.
The Brooklyn Nets roster reconstruction may not be finished quite yet. Jason Dumas, the sports director for KRON 4 News in San Francisco, is reporting that the team has had "active discussions" with the Cleveland Cavaliers regarding a deal that would put center JaVale McGee on the move. Additionally, Brooklyn has inquired about Kevin Love as well, although it's unclear how the math could work to fit another mega-sized deal onto the Nets' books. Currently, DeAndre Jordan represents the only true center that the Nets have at their disposal, with Kevin Durant and Jeff Green having seen time at the five as well. McGee is averaging 8.2 points and 6.2 boards in under 17 minutes per game this year, and his fantasy stock would only rise by getting away from the crowded Cleveland frontcourt.
Los Angeles Lakers center JaVale McGee has decided to accept his $4.2 million player option for next season. He started 68 games during the regular season, but was kept on the bench for most of the postseason. McGee is expected to have a similar role on the Lakers this season, but that depends on who they add this offseason. He could have deep league value, but fantasy owners shouldn't expect much more out of McGee.
