“There is some concern,” Shaw said. “I haven’t really been killing him in practice or even in games. I’m cognizant of that. But once again, it’s something that he’s going to have to work himself through.” Asked if he’d rest Lawson in any of the preseason games, Shaw said, “It’s a possibility. It’s that fine line because you want guys to continue to build up their stamina and their conditioning and be sharp. Kenneth (Faried) kind of got his game this last game (at Phoenix). If Ty just really busts out and has a big game and is showing me that ‘Okay, I’m ready’ then maybe I’ll feel better about doing something like that.” Denver Post

McGee, 26, arrived at camp the strongest he's ever been — 270 pounds of muscle. He also arrived with a titanium rod in his left shin after surgery to correct a stress fracture in his tibia. Next-day soreness after workouts is keeping him sidelined, but he is doing more and more each week. McGee is the shot blocker. He is a 7-footer so tantalizingly athletic that Shaw isn't willing to do anything more than split the workload at center and ride the hot hand when Mozgov and McGee are both healthy. McGee appears content to be at least suiting up and sitting on the bench while going through practice sessions. "I only played four or five games last year, so it's a real blessing to be back," McGee said. "I've been working out and shooting and running and doing hook shots and all of that stuff since probably about four weeks ago." Denver Post

But of the four, Shaw said that center JaVale McGee is "probably the furthest away" from being back. McGee suffered a stress fracture in his left tibia last November, and missed all but five games last season after an initial prognosis expected him to return in the spring. CBSSports.com
