RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2015-16

Once considered an up-and-comer in the league, the enigmatic McGee has seen his career path altered by erratic play and injury. McGee was hoping for a bounce back season last year after surgery to address a stress fracture in his tibia limited him to just five games the previous year. However, soreness in the area resurfaced, and he appeared in just 23 games with both the Nuggets and Sixers. Philadelphia waived the seven-year veteran in early March, and McGee opted not to sign with another team. He finished the season averaging 4.6 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 0.9 blocks in 11 minutes per game. McGee shot an impressive 53 percent from the field and 67 percent from the free-throw line. Dallas signed the 7-0 center in the offseason with the hope that he can provide the athleticism and rim-protection the team lost after DeAndre Jordan returned to Los Angeles and Tyson Chandler left for Phoenix. Though the Mavericks medical staff is highly regarded, health remains the key factor in McGee's long-term value. If he can stay on the court, McGee's age and ability should allow him to be a regular member of the Dallas rotation and provide him an opportunity to restart a once promising career.

2014-15

JaVale McGee missed the majority of the 2013-14 season after a stress fracture was discovered in his left tibia in November. He was the starter coming in to the 2013-14 season, but the injury forced the Nuggets to turn to J.J. Hickson and, eventually, Timofey Mozgov at center. McGee will have his eye on reclaiming the starting center role in 2014-15, but he'll have to prove his worth in training camp to guarantee himself minutes.

2013-14

Pegged as a potential breakout candidate last year, McGee failed to live up to the billing, as he spent the entire season working as a reserve off of the Nuggets' bench. The 25-year-old seven-footer finished the 2012-13 season with averages of 9.1 points and 4.8 rebounds, but he was still able to make a fantasy impact by swatting away two shots per game and sinking 57 percent of his field-goal attempts. While he has always been prone to bone-headed mistakes, there's no denying McGee's athletic ability. His career stats per 36 minutes played (15.3 points, 10.0 rebounds, 3.3. blocks) hint at the potential McGee has yet to fully realize. Owners who take a chance on him during draft day may finally be able to reap the rewards of his potential, though, as the new blood in the Nuggets' front office have been backing the talented big man all offseason. There's some risk involved in reaching too far for McGee, but he could end up being a great piece to add to any fantasy frontcourt if his playing time increases as expected.

2012-13

After breaking onto the fantasy scene in 2010-11, McGee solidified himself as a quality option at the pivot last season. He was once again one the league’s premier shot blockers, swatting away 2.2 attempts per game, which ranked second in the Association behind Serge Ibaka. His scoring average reached a new career-high of 11.3 points while his rebounding dropped slightly to 7.8 boards. Aside from the bone-headed plays McGee has been prone to committing the past couple seasons, the main mark against him has been an undeveloped offensive game. His athleticism is off the charts, but he struggles from the charity stripe (46.1) and doesn’t have much of a low-post game to speak of. The 24-year-old seven-footer worked to address his holes on the offensive end of the court this offseason, though, receiving tutelage from Hall-of-Fame big man Hakeem Olajuwon. The Nuggets committed over $40 million to McGee this offseason, so he should be a big part of the team going forward. Look for him to be the Nuggets’ primary option in the middle, which should lead to an increase in playing time, especially if he can display refined offensive skills from his time spent with Olajuwon this summer.

2011-12

McGee garnered national attention after his electrifying performance at last year’s slam dunk contest, but the Wizards’ big man was already making a name for himself in fantasy circles prior to his high-flying act. After averaging 1.6 blocks in only 16 minutes per game as a sophomore, fantasy owners were foaming at the mouth with anticipation of McGee getting more playing time in 2010-11. He didn’t disappoint. Handed more than 27 mpg by Wizards coach Flip Saunders, McGee developed into one of the better shot-blockers in the Association, averaging 2.4 blocks per game while chipping in 8.0 rebounds. While great on defense, the 23-year-old center is still very raw on the offensive side of the ball. Without much of a low-post game, McGee relied on his athleticism to get easy baskets, on the way to a career-high 10.1 points per game. With most of his baskets being dunks or put-backs, McGee shot 55.0 percent from the floor, but he struggled from the line, hitting just 58.3 percent of his freebies. McGee will likely never develop into an offensive force, but he’s young enough that there’s still room for growth, and he’s already strong enough in blocks to carry that category for fantasy squads.

2010-11

McGee's final numbers last season certainly don't jump out, but looking deeper, 1.7 bpg in just 16:06 mpg is pretty impressive. He really turned it on during the last month of the season, when he averaged 13.3 points, 8.5 rebounds and 2.9 blocks over eight games. He's also coming off a highly encouraging offseason, as McGee averaged 19.5 points and 9.3 rebounds while shooting 69 percent from the field in four Las Vegas Summer League games and nearly played for Team USA during the world championships. McGee was also diagnosed with asthma – a serious condition that had previously been untreated – so his stamina has really improved. Washington is currently in a major youth movement, so he'll enter 2010-11 as the team's starting center. McGee is a true sleeper.

2009-10

McGee was not projected to play much as a rookie, but injuries forced him into minutes last season. He actually showed a fair amount of promise and some flashes of brilliance, along with some usual rookie ups and downs. McGee will probably post similar numbers to last season's unless Saunders prefers to give more backup-center minutes to Blatche and the less talented but steady Oberto.

2008-09

McGee was the Wizards' first round pick (18th overall) in the 2008 draft. An athletic seven-footer with the wingspan of a commercial airliner, he projects as a combo forward/center who can run the floor and provide good interior defense -- but he's pretty raw. He did lead the Vegas Summer League in minutes, which may be a positive sign.
