McGary will declare for the 2014 NBA Draft after a failed drug test resulted in a one-year suspension by the NCAA, Yahoo Sports reports.

McGary tested positive for marijuana and admitted to smoking it in mid-March before the NCAA Tournament. He was tested after Michigan's Sweet 16 win over Tennessee, despite not playing in the contest due to his ongoing back injury. Had he been tested by the University, he likely would not have received such a stiff penalty, but because it was during the Tournament, he was subject to NCAA penalties.

McGary (back) has started running again as he recovers from back surgery, reports.

McGary had already been stretching and able to shoot again but that he's running is a good sign of the progress he's making. It's still an outside shot he returns this season, but it's possible if the recovery continues as planned and the Wolverines make a deep run into the tournament.

McGary (back) has begun his rehab from December back surgery, but a timetable is still not available, ESPN reports.

McGary is likely hoping to return in March and help his team through the tournament, although the most likely scenario is still that he'll miss the remainder of the season.

McGary will undergo back surgery and is highly unlikely to return this season, ESPN's Jeff Goodman reports.

McGary garnered considerable NBA buzz after a monstrous showing in his six NCAA tournament games as a freshman, but it's safe to say his stock has tumbled quite a bit with recurring back issues set to cost him most of his sophomore season. The 6-foot-10 big man will be a massive loss for a Wolverines squad that has gotten off to a subpar 7-4 start in 2013-14 following the departure of Player of the Year Trey Burke.

McGary is dealing with an undisclosed injury that caused him to miss the Wolverines win over Stanford and could keep him out of Saturday's matchup against Holy Cross, reports.

McGary has struggled with injuries early on this season and his owners and the Wolverines will hope he's rejuvinated for conference play. He's been a terrific rebounder for Michigan this season averaging 8.3 rebounds in just 24.8 minutes per game this season.

McGary nearly had what might have been his best game of the season in a win over Houston Baptist Saturday, scoring 12 points and adding nine rebounds, six assists, four steals and a block in just 23 minutes played.

Another one of Michigan's talented sophomores, McGary will be key in leading Michigan to a deep tournament run this coming March.

McGary pulled down 14 boards and scored 15 points in Michigan's loss to Duke Tuesday.

McGary has been a solid big man for the maize and blue, putting in over 25 minutes per game this season. If he keeps improving he may average a double-double by seasons end.
