  • Mavericks' JaVale McGee: Likely to play Friday

    McGee (neck) is probable to play in Friday's game versus the Nuggets.

  • Mavericks' JaVale McGee: Out again Wednesday

    McGee (neck) has been ruled out for Wednesday's matchup against Houston.

  • Mavericks' JaVale McGee: Won't play Tuesday

    McGee has been downgraded to out for Tuesday's game versus the Clippers due to a neck strain.

    McGee has averaged 4.2 points, 3.0 rebounds and 0.5 blocks in 9.4 minutes across 10 games this season. McGee's absence should open more playing time for Christian Wood on Tuesday. The veteran center's next opportunity to play will be Wednesday's game versus the Rockets.

  • Mavericks' JaVale McGee: Coming off bench Wednesday

    McGee will come off the bench Wednesday against the Magic, Mavericks radio play-by-play broadcaster Chuck Cooperstein reports.

    McGee's role has diminished lately, and Dwight Powell appears to be on his way to permanently take over as the starting center. McGee hasn't seen double-digit minutes since Oct. 27.

  • Mavericks' JaVale McGee: Role diminishing

    McGee accumulated zero points (0-1 FG) across three minutes during Monday's 96-94 win over Brooklyn.

    Despite starting the contest, McGee logged just three minutes in Monday's affair. It marks his fourth straight contest plying single-digit minutes after the big man played at least 12 in each of the first four games. This decrease in playing time doesn't bode well for McGee's fantasy outlook for the rest of the campaign, though things can change should injuries arise. As of now, both Dwight Powell and Christian Wood are ahead of the veteran in the rotation.

  • Mavericks' JaVale McGee: Moves to starting center

    McGee is starting Monday's game against the Nets, Tim Cato of The Athletic reports.

    McGee started the first six games he appeared in to begin the 2022-23 campaign, but he averaged just 11.3 minutes, 4.8 points and 3.3 rebounds over that stretch. After moving to a bench role for one game Friday against Toronto, coach Jason Kidd announced that McGee will move back to the starting center slot for Monday's matchup.

  • Mavericks' JaVale McGee: Moves to bench

    McGee will come off the bench in Friday's game against the Raptors, Callie Caplan of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    McGee was leapfrogged by Dwight Powell on the depth chart Friday, marking his first time not appearing in the starting five this season. Since McGee has logged less than 10 minutes in each of his last two games and has not played more than 14 minutes this season, his fantasy production may not be affected by his reserve status.

  • Mavericks' JaVale McGee: Starting Sunday

    McGee is starting Sunday's game against the Magic, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    McGee sat out Saturday's game against Oklahoma City for rest purposes, and it isn't very surprising to see him return to the starting lineup for the second half of the back-to-back set. He's averaged 6.3 points and 3.8 rebounds in 12.8 minutes per game over his first four appearances of the season.

  • Mavericks' JaVale McGee: Not playing Saturday

    McGee (rest) won't play Saturday against the Thunder, Eddie Sefko of the Mavericks' official site reports.

    As expected, the veteran big man will rest with a packed schedule on the horizon, and as head coach Jason Kidd states, McGee's absence from the lineup is solely based on rest and maintenance. Dwight Powell will get the start in his place, but McGee could return to action when the Mavericks take on the Magic on Sunday.

  • Mavericks' JaVale McGee: Could rest Saturday

    McGee is questionable for Saturday's game against the Thunder due to rest, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports.

    This season, McGee has produced at a level consistent with the past three years, averaging 6.3 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 12.8 minutes. MacMahon notes that if McGee rests, Dwight Powell could start at center.

  • Mavericks' JaVale McGee: Manages six boards, two blocks

    McGee registered six points (3-4 FG), six rebounds, one assist and two blocks across 13 minutes during Saturday's 137-96 victory over Memphis.

    McGee continues to start for the Mavericks despite his low minute count. Across two games, he has played 14 and 13 minutes, respectively, fewer than any other starting center in the league. While he can be a steady source of boards and blocks, even in limited minutes, there is very little reason to roster him outside of deep leagues.

  • Mavericks' JaVale McGee: Will start Friday

    McGee will start Friday's preseason contest against the Magic.

    McGee missed the team's preseason opener Wednesday due to an ankle sprain he suffered at practice earlier in the week. However, the issue appears to have been minor, and he's been cleared to make his first start at center for the Mavericks.

  • Mavericks' JaVale McGee: Out Wednesday

    McGee (ankle) will miss Wednesday's preseason game versus the Thunder, Nick Crain of SI.com reports.

    McGee has also missed practice due to his sprained ankle. While the Mavericks' regular season does not start until Oct. 19, the team will likely be careful with the veteran center in the preseason. As a result, McGee's minutes could be limited until the regular season rolls around.

  • Mavericks' JaVale McGee: Dealing with ankle sprain

    McGee didn't practice Tuesday due to an ankle sprain, Callie Caplan of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Given his lack of participation at practice Tuesday, McGee is unlikely to play in Wednesday's exhibition contest. The severity of the injury is unclear, but he'll have two weeks to clear the issue before the Mavericks' regular-season opener against the Suns on Oct. 19.
