Meanwhile, the Nuggets will get JaVale McGee back, either Wednesday against Portland or at Golden State on Friday. The center has progressed to the point of taking part in full practices the last couple of times out, and he's ready to get back on the court. He said the pain in his left tibia is down to a minimum, and he wants to get a game or two under his belt before the regular season begins. McGee, who has had the added motivation of watching young center Jusuf Nurkic play well in his absence, will participate with a minute restriction, but he'll play. "I'm excited, really excited," McGee said. "It's been a long time since I played in a real game." 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

Big Baby got inside ... but the line proved to be too much for McGee and he decided to leave. Might have been the best decision he made all night. Because 90 minutes later, gunshots rang out -- and as TMZ first reported, Suge Knight was shot multiple times. TMZ.com

A resolution on whether Nuggets center JaVale McGee will play again this season is expected by March 1, his mother, Pamela, told The Denver Post. McGee has been out since early November with a stress fracture in his left tibia. The team's original plan was to allow McGee to take time to let his foot heal without having surgery. But now, with little progress having been made, the 7-footer has to decide whether to have surgery. "By March 1 we'll know exactly what strategy to use and when he'll be definitely be back, or not back," Pamela McGee said. Denver Post

Denver Nuggets center JaVale McGee could miss the rest of the season because of a stress fracture in his left leg, league sources told Yahoo Sports. McGee, 26, has been seeking further medical consultation on the injury, which hasn't been able to heal properly this season, league sources said. A final decision on his status could come in the next several days. McGee had played five games for the Nuggets before the injury's diagnosis in early November. McGee would be the third Nuggets player – including forward Danilo Gallinari and Nate Robinson – to be lost for the year. Gallinari and Robinson had surgeries to repair torn ACL ligaments. Yahoo!
