McShane played the full 90 minutes and picked up a clean sheet in Saturday's 0-0 draw at Leicester City. He led all Hull City defenders with one shot and one shot on target but was unable to convert for a goal.

McShane has four shot attempts in the last four matches but has not scored a goal this season. A tougher schedule for Hull City for the rest of the season will limit his fantasy value.

McShane made 18 clearances Saturday against Burnley, but it was not enough to keep a clean sheet as the Tigers lost 1-0.

McShane has very little fantasy value, even in formats that award points for auxiliary stats. In five appearances he has just two shot attempts and has only two matches with more than 10 clearances.

McShane, who has been out since February with an ankle injury, will be given a late fitness test ahead of Sunday's season-finale against Everton, the club's official website reports.

McShane has made only nine appearances this season, but he was getting regular starts before he went down with the injury. Any playing time on Sunday will benefit him for the following weekend's match against Arsenal in the FA Cup final.

McShane, who has been out since February with an ankle injury, may be able to return for the FA Cup final on May 17, Sky Sports reports.

McShane was all but ruled out for the rest of the season and he is just returning to training, so it's still a long shot that he makes the match.

McShane got news Thursday that he will be out for six months after learning he will need surgery to repair ligament damage to his ankle, reports the Hull Daily Mail. McShane injured the ankle in Hull City's loss to Southampton on Tuesday.

Missing six months means McShane will be out for the remainder of the 2013-14 season and will be hopeful for a return in time for the 2014-15 season.

McShane suffered an ankle injury in Tuesday's Premier League loss to Southampton, requiring a stretcher to get off the pitch, the Irish Times reports. Manager Steve Bruce said "he's had X-rays which have revealed no break but the video evidence doesn't look great...his ankle is in a horrible position. We fear ligament damage, which we know can be worse than a break."

McShane has been in-and-out of the starting XI this season for Hull, but had seemed to settle in nicely as of late. He wasn't a great fantasy producer before the injury, which will certainly sideline him for quite some time.

McShane was healthy enough to be included in Hull City's squad for Monday's match against Swansea City. However, the defender stayed on the bench for the entire match in his return from a hamstring injury.

McShane has been dealing with a hamstring injury for much of the season. He has not provided any offensive fantasy value and has contributed to just one clean sheet for the Tigers.

McShane sufferd a hamstring injury in last weekend's loss to Crystal Palace and could miss "a couple of weeks," according to manager Steve Bruce, the Hull Daily Mail reports.

McShane battled a hamstring injury earlier this season, so news that a new one popped up certainly isn't good. He will clearly miss Sunday's Premier League match against Liverpool, along with a number of others after that.
