Shaw: Nuggets C McGee should 'accept unique gifts'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2014) Brian Shaw is seeking to get Nuggets center JaVale McGee in the groove. McGee, who has dealt with a stress fracture in his left leg, has been unproductive in his last seven games with just 22 points on 7 of 18 shooting.

But Shaw believes there's more to McGee's struggles than the effects of working his way back from injury. "We've talked to him extensively," Shaw told the Denver Post. "What I really want him to do is just accept the unique gifts God has given him - his length, his athleticism - for that size, and just impact the game, just take his mind off everything else. But just think about defense and how he can impact the game defensively, changing shots, blocking shots, getting rebounds and clogging up the middle for us. And I think everything else will fall in line for him."

McGee has been on a playing-time restriction. He is averaging about 12 minutes per game. Shaw is hoping that McGee puts his offensive game aside for a while.

"I think sometimes he wants to come in and show us and everybody else that he can post up and he can be an offensive force," Shaw said. "And I think that's where he gets himself in trouble from time to time."

Hickson suffered a torn ACL in March and made his season debut during Sunday’s 116-100 loss to Portland. Despite only playing 15 minutes, Hickson almost recorded a double-double with eight points and 10 rebounds.

Nuggets' JaVale McGee questionable for season opener


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Nuggets center JaVale McGee is a question mark for the regular-season opener, the Denver Post reports.

"He still may be able to go when the season starts," coach Brian Shaw said. "But I’m just judging that based on everybody else so far has not had any soreness, has not had any relapses or taken any backward steps. He’s the only one that’s feeling any pain at all. So that’s why I’m still a little cautious with him. But the other guys look strong, their tests have come back (well), and if you ask them they are ready to go. I think we’re holding them back more than anything else."

McGee underwent season-ending surgery in February to repair a stress fracture in his left leg. Shaw also said that the soreness McGee is battling is "pretty natural, he’s going to be sore and then he’ll take a day (off) and the soreness will go away and then he’ll do a little bit more the next time."
