Mitch McGary didn't score in two minutes with one board against the Bulls on Thursday.
He has a good game on occasion, but there are just too many duds like this one. McGary has three scoreless games in his last five and obviously the Enes Kanter deal crippled his value. Mar 5 - 10:42 PM

Mitch McGary, who scored 20 points on Friday, finished Sunday's win vs. the Lakers scoreless with only one rebound in 10 minutes.

This is the norm for McGary, who has scored double-digit points in consecutive games just once all season (Feb. 8 and Feb. 9). We've seen what he can do when given extended playing time, but fantasy owners should avoid him while Enes Kanter and Serge Ibaka are healthy.
Mar 1 - 10:08 PM

Mitch McGary scored a career-high 20 points against the Blazers on Friday with nine rebounds, two assists, one steal and two turnovers on 10-of-13 from the field.

Nine of his 10 makes were in the paint and he had 11 of his 13 shots come from within nine feet or less. McGary made the most of Enes Kanter (leg) missing tonight, but he's Kanter might not need to miss more time. He's more of a speculative add in deeper leagues right now.
Feb 28 - 2:31 AM

Mitch McGary scored nine points with 10 rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks against the Hornets.

He picked up eight boards in his first few minutes tonight and coasted from there. McGary did all of this damage in just 15 minutes, but he will play even less because Kevin Durant will take away minutes from the power forwards. Leave him on the wire.
Feb 21 - 10:10 PM

Mitch McGary had another awful game against the Mavericks on Thursday, making 2-of-5 from the field and missing both free throws for four points, three rebounds, one steal and two turnovers.

He had no offensive rebounds in this game and only had a 6.7 offensive rebounding rate in his last game. It was obvious his 26.2 offensive rebounding rate in the first four games of his career was not sustainable and McGary might not even be part of the rotation with Enes Kanter around. Drop him basically everywhere.

Mitch McGary fouled out in 15 minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday with no points and two rebounds.

He's an offensive big man, which is really a superfluous thing for the Thunder given how they have the top two players in usage rate from the 2013-14 season on their team. McGary doesn't block shots and his numbers in his first two games were a complete fluke. If you picked him up, start looking elsewhere.
Feb 11 - 11:36 PM

Mitch McGary double-doubled with 17 and 10 against the Nuggets on Monday.

McGary hit 6-of-12 shots and added a block against the Nuggets' notoriously weak interior defense, but he had a similar line on Sunday and owners have to take a look at him for the three weeks Steven Adams is out.
Feb 10 - 3:32 AM

Mitch McGary logged his first career double-double during Sunday's trouncing of the Clippers, scoring 19 points on 8-of-9 shooting, with 10 rebounds, one steal and two turnovers over 23 minutes of action.

McGary took full advantage of the increased opportunity on Sunday with Kendrick Perkins (suspension) unavailable and Steven Adams leaving the game with a hand injury. Head coach Scott Brooks said that McGary will "get opportunities" moving forward, but it's worth noting that Nick Collison was the one who started the second half after Adams went down. McGary is worth a speculative add in deeper leagues, but people in standard leagues would be wise to see if he can repeat this production when Perkins returns to action.

The Thunder have recalled Mitch McGary from the NBA D-League and he is expected to be available to play against the Clippers on Sunday.

Kendrick Perkins has been suspended for this game, so McGary could actually see some minutes off the bench against the Clippers' talented frontcourt. However, unless McGary's role somehow grows significantly in the coming weeks, he won't be an option in almost any league. Leave him on the wire.
Feb 8 - 10:05 AM

The Oklahoma City Thunder have sent Mitch McGary to the D-League.

McGary will again join the Oklahoma City Blue as the playoff-contending Thunder attempt to get the rookie some consistent minutes. The 22-year-old has played just eight NBA minutes this season, so it goes without saying that he doesn't belong on any fantasy rosters right now.
Feb 3 - 11:38 AM

Mitch McGary (leg) got back on the floor on Monday in a one-minute stint.

McGary would need multiple injuries ahead of him to have any fantasy value this season.
Feb 3 - 2:20 AM

Mitch McGary (leg) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Magic.

There haven't been many updates on his status, but he still doesn't have a timetable to return. The rookie likely won't be in the rotation this season, so owners can safely leave him on the wire.
Jan 18 - 1:20 PM

Mitch McGary (shin) was present for parts of Tuesday's practice, according to Thunder head coach Scott Brooks.

McGary hasn't played since December 14 and is still without a timetable to return. His participation in practice is a step in the right direction, but fantasy owners can leave the rookie sitting on waiver wires as he's unlikely to be a part of the Thunder's rotation this season.
Jan 13 - 1:45 PM

Mitch McGary (leg) was back at practice on Saturday and appears to be healthy.

He just can't stay healthy and hopefully that changes. McGary was one of the best offensive centers at Orlando Summer League, but he won't be in the rotation while the team is healthy.
Jan 10 - 2:18 PM

Mitch McGary will miss the next 2-3 weeks with an injury to his left tibia.

Technically, he is dealing with periostitis, which is just some inflammation. McGary missed the first month of the season with a broken foot, but this does not appear to be directly related. He won't have fantasy value in his rookie season after a very impressive summer league.
