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.

He looks incredibly active when he is on the floor, and even showed off his quickness on several occasions. There is no doubt that McGary has some upside, but until he becomes a key part of the rotation he won't have fantasy value in almost any league.

Mitch McGary (foot) will rejoin the Thunder in advance of Tuesday's game against New Orleans.

Thunder head coach Scott Brooks said he is still unsure if McGary will be available for Tuesday's game, but the rookie is getting closer to making his NBA debut. McGary put up 21 points and 11 boards during Monday's D-League game against Bakersfield, but will be hard-pressed to find time in the Thunder's rotation so fantasy owners in standard leagues can feel free to ignore him for now.

Mitch McGary was assigned to the OKC Blue of the NBA D-League on Sunday and is expected to play for them.

After an extensive recovery from a foot fracture, it appears he is finally set to see some action. McGary likely won't be in the rotation for the Thunder this season barring any injuries to their frontcourt, so he can be ignored in almost all leagues.

Mitch McGary (foot) practiced on Saturday and is getting closer to a return. but his status is uncertain for Tuesday's game.

The Thunder are slowly getting healthy, and there may be some minutes available in the front court if the rookie plays well. Considering his competition for minutes includes Kendrick Perkins and Nick Collison, he could very well carve out a nice role with the Thunder. However, owners should probably wait until we see him in action before taking a flier on him.
