|JaVale McGee has season-ending surgery |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(2/20/14) Nuggets center JaVale McGee underwent season-ending surgery to repair the stress fracture in his left leg on Thursday, according to CBSSports.com NBA Insider Ken Berger.
McGee was sidelined since the fifth game of the season with the injury. He tried to let the injury heal over time, but the recovery process moved too slowly for the Nuggets. He averaged only 7.0 points and 3.4 rebounds in that short span.
|Resolution on JaVale McGee expected by March 1 |

(2/15/14) JaVale McGee's mother told the Denver Post on Saturday that a resolution on whether he'll play again this season is expected by March 1.
"By March 1 we'll know exactly what strategy to use and when he'll be definitely be back, or not back," Pamela McGee said.
McGee has been sidelined since the fifth game of the season with a stress fracture in his left tibia. The Nuggets wanted to see if the injury would heal without surgery, but he has made little progress. Because the injury hasn't healed enough, McGee has only been limited to some lower body activities. Surgery would end the season for the 26-year-old.

(2/6/14) Nuggets injured center JaVale McGee has been sidelined since the fifth game of the season with a stress fracture in his left leg, and could possibly be done for the year, Yahoo Sports reports.
The report indicates that McGee's fractured tibia hasn't been able to heal properly, and the team could make a decision on his rest-of-season status in the next few days. McGee has appeared in only five games this season, averaging 7.0 points and 3.4 rebounds in that short span.
|JaVale McGee making some progress in recovery |

(1/21/14) There have not been many updates about the status of Nuggets center JaVale McGee, but that also means we haven't received any bad news about his recovery from a stress fracture in his left tibia. McGee did share a bit of good news Tuesday, telling the Denver Post he has been able to advance in his workouts, moving to an elliptical machine.
"It doesn't put any pain on my shin because my foot is never leaving the platform," McGee said. "That's the only thing I can do. I can't ride the bike or treadmill."
The fact that McGee, who has been shut down for three months, is not yet able to run is a bit concerning. He acknowledged that the injury is still healing, and he is very early in the rehabilitation process. There remains no timeline for his possible return.
|JaVale McGee scheduled for X-ray next week |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(12/12/13) Nuggets center JaVale McGee is scheduled to undergo an X-ray on his injured tibia next week to determine how much the injury has healed, the Denver Post reports.
McGee will remain limited in what he can do at least until he gets the results of the X-ray. He remains without a timetable for return.
|Nuggets center JaVale McGee will enter the new season hoping to bounce back from his past injury. McGee was limited to only five games last season before going down with a stress fracture in his left tibia. The plan was let the injury heal without surgery, but because it didn't heal fast enough, McGee's season came to a disappointing end, opting for season-ending surgery in February. We can't really make too much of a conclusion from his numbers last season. In five games he averaged 7.0 points and 3.4 rebounds in 15.8 minutes per game. He shot 44.7 percent from the field over that span. McGee has only logged 10 starts during his time in Denver, five of which came last season before the injury. He'll likely fight with Timofey Mozgov for the starting gig. If he does start and lasts an entire season, he'll be a double-double threat on a nightly basis. The expectations aren't high for him, so he could be a bargain in the mid-to-late rounds of the draft.
