Nuggets' JaVale McGee questionable for season opener
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(10/8/14) 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."
Nuggets sitting four in preseason opener
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(10/6/14) The Nuggets enter training camp with a number of players working their way back from injuries, and will be shorthanded for the start of preseason action.
The Denver Post reports the Nuggets will sit Danilo Gallinari (knee), JaVale McGee (leg), Nate Robinson (knee) and JJ Hickson (knee) for Monday's preseason opener against the Lakers. The players are all in various stages of their recoveries, with Galinari and McGee likely to be ready for the start of the season, while Hickson is targeting a January return. It is not clear whether Robinson will be ready by the start of the regular season.
Nuggets not ready to name starting center
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/30/14) When asked if he's named a starting center, Nuggets head coach Brian Shaw said, "we'll kind of have to see," according to the Denver Post. JaVale McGee missed most of last season because of a fractured right fibula. Timofey Mozgov took over for him over that stretch and averaged 9.4 points and 6.4 rebounds over 82 games.
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.
|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.
