Mitch McGary showed off his offensive skill set against the Magic during a 73-65 win, making 9-of-12 from the field for 19 points with three rebounds, two assists, two steals and two fouls in 25 minutes.
He has lost close to 30 pounds and it's pretty clear he's worked on his mid-range game, too. McGary basically just lived around the rim during his rookie season, so his offseason has gone quite well to broaden his ability to play outside of the paint on both ends. Still, he's just going to be a backup for OKC. Jul 6 - 5:19 PM

Mitch McGary has lost close to 30 pounds this offseason.

"I’m still trying to get used to the change," McGary said. "I didn’t know I could jump this high." He showed it on Saturday with 13 rebounds, but he did have some clumsy mistakes. Still, McGary is really going to have a tough time getting consistent minutes with the big club.

Mitch McGary scored eight points during a 76-74 win over the Hornets on Saturday, adding 13 rebounds, one assist, one steal and four turnovers.

He had a couple clumsy turnovers in this one, but he hit the glass hard with five offensive rebounds. Unless some team really goes after Enes Kanter with a max deal, McGary isn't in line for big minutes next year.
Jul 4 - 5:01 PM

Mitch McGary vanished on Sunday, going scoreless with three rebounds and no other statistics in just eight minutes of action.

Steven Adams was rolling tonight and it was a poor matchup for McGary, as the Thunder ultimately surrounded Adams with four 3-point threats and dared the Suns to cover them all. McGary is far too risky for standard-league use while both Adams and Enes Kanter (11 points, nine rebounds) are dominating minutes in OKC's frontcourt.

Mitch McGary had eight points, seven rebounds, three steals and a block off the Thunder bench in Wednesday's blowout loss to the Spurs.

The line wasn't bad considering the fact the Thunder lost by 39 points and sat the regulars for most of the second half. Steven Adams disappeared tonight, but he's still the guy we'd rather own over McGary, so don't do anything crazy. This game was over very early.
Mar 26 - 2:57 AM

Mitch McGary shifted to the Thunder bench on Sunday and didn't miss a beat, scoring 14 points with eight rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 26 minutes.

McGary hasn't fared well recently, exceeding 20 minutes just three times in March, so it's hard to get too excited about tonight's performance vs. a weak Miami frontcourt. He's worth keeping an eye on but standard-league owners should avoid him as long as Enes Kanter and Steven Adams are both healthy and starting.
Mar 22 - 7:10 PM

Mitch McGary will shift back to the bench for Sunday's game vs. the Heat due to the return of Enes Kanter (ankle).

McGary has shown flashes of his potential this season but he has also shown a lot of inconsistency. He could still have a sizable role off the bench with Serge Ibaka (knee) and Nick Collison (ankle) on the sidelines, but he is off the radar in standard leagues at the moment.

Mitch McGary will be in the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Hawks with Enes Kanter (ankle) unavailable.

In McGary's previous start he put up 12 points, two rebounds, and two assists through 22 minutes of action. He'll have a tough matchup tonight against the Hawks, and with Scott Brooks, starting doesn’t necessarily equate to heavy minutes, so McGary remains a risky option in daily leagues.
Mar 20 - 6:31 PM

Mitch McGary played just six minutes on Wednesday and didn't see the court in the second half, finishing with just four points and one rebound (and three fouls).

With Enes Kanter leaving with a sprained ankle tonight, McGary could be getting more run if Kanter misses time. Stay tuned for news on Kanter's ankle.
Mar 19 - 2:10 AM

Mitch McGary double-doubled in 17 minutes against the Mavs on Monday with 12 points, 13 rebounds and one block.

As promising as this line looks, he's going to have a tough time putting up numbers like this with only 17 minutes. McGary didn't score in nine minutes on Sunday, so most fantasy owners are going to have to see it again. Plus, Enes Kanter fitting in nicely hurts McGary's chances.
Mar 17 - 12:19 AM

Mitch McGary will come off the bench for Sunday's game vs. the Bulls.

The Thunder opted to go with a little more size and will start Steven Adams and Enes Kanter together, but McGary could still see plenty of minutes with Serge Ibaka (knee) out of commission. However, unless Ibaka needs to miss extended time (he is still listed as day-to-day), McGary is only worth a look in deeper leagues.
Mar 15 - 12:05 PM

Mitch McGary started for Serge Ibaka (knee) in Friday's win over the Wolves, scoring 12 points on 6-of-8 shooting with two rebounds and two assists in 22 minutes.

This is disappointing if you gambled on him in a daily format but he'll still be worth a look in this situation if it happens again. He has no real ongoing fantasy value at this time.
Mar 14 - 12:39 AM

Mitch McGary will slide into the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Timberwolves with Serge Ibaka (knee) out.

McGary will get a very favorable matchup against the Wolves tonight, so he's worth a look as a plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Nick Collison and Steven Adams will also have some more opportunity for playing time with Serge sidelined, but McGary offers the most upside out of the group.

Head coach Scott Brooks said that Mitch McGary will be an energy guy for the Thunder, and he will try to find him minutes in OKC's rotation.

"[McGary] brings enthusiasm and I have to find minutes for him," said Brooks. "Whether it's five minutes here or there, that's my job to find them." The five minutes here or there part of the quote is telling, and with OKC's frontcourt completely healthy, McGary is going to struggle to find consistent minutes. He's not going to be worth owning in almost any league.
Mar 10 - 4:12 PM

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.
