McGary has battled off-the-court issues and was to be suspended the first 15 games of the season for twice violating the league's anti-drug program. He's also dealt with a number of significant injuries. McGary was projected as a promising lottery pick early in his collegiate career at Univeristy of Michigan, but has failed to live up to hype since entering the NBA. He may be forced to try to rehabilitate his career overseas. Oct 24 - 2:56 PM

Mitch McGary will likely be waived by the Thunder on Monday, according to Brett Dawson of The Oklahoman.

McGary will be suspended for the first 15 games of the season for twice violating the league's anti-drug program, and it seems like OKC is done with this investment. He sat out the first four preseason games due to a sore foot, but was also unable to get on the floor at all once deemed healthy. McGary is a complete non-factor in fantasy hoops.

Mitch McGary (sore right foot) won't play Thursday vs. the Grizzlies.

McGary is entirely irrelevant in all fantasy leagues, regardless of his health.

Mitch McGary (sore right foot) will not play in Tuesday's preseason game against the Mavericks.

The injury is not serious, but chances are he wouldn't even play if he were healthy. McGary is not worth drafting in any setting.

Mitch McGary said that he did not fully comply with the structure of the NBA's drug program, and that's what resulted in his 10-game suspension.

McGary is suspended for a total of 15 games, but he got an additional 10 on top of the five that had already been in place for some time. "I'm in the drug program for failing the drug test and to be compliant, you have to take a certain amount of tests, and I did not do that," McGary said. "I would love to stay here and play here with new guys coming in; it would be very tough for me to get minutes here," McGary said. The big man would have been buried even without the suspensions, and now his time off could result in his release from the roster. "I don't want to let this define me as a player," McGary added. If that's the case, he needs to make some real changes immediately and commit to being a professional.

Mitch McGary said it's "going to be hard to get minutes" for the Thunder this season.

He's not going to get any minutes in the first 15 games due to a suspension. McGary admitted he messed up and said he just wants to play basketball again. He's not a lock to make the team.
Sep 23 - 4:33 PM

Thunder GM Sam Presti confirmed that Mitch McGary will be at training camp.

He's reportedly on the roster bubble and has been suspended for the first 15 games of the season for violating the NBA's anti-drug policy for the second time. "He’ll be with us in training camp with an opportunity to compete," Presti said. "All that being said, I think it’s going to be a competitive camp. We’ve got probably more deserving players lined up to come to camp than we have roster spots." The Thunder brought in Ersan Ilyasova and Domantas Sabonis, so McGary won't be looking at minutes in OKC if he sticks around.

Mitch McGary's suspension will be for 15 games.

He violated the NBA's anti-drug policy for the second time and will now have to enter a drug program and pay the fine. McGary was already considered to be on the roster bubble in OKC, so don't be surprised if the Thunder part ways with the forward.
Sep 18 - 9:40 AM

Mitch McGary is reportedly facing another suspension for violating the NBA's anti-drug policy.

McGary was originally schedule to serve a five-game suspension for a violation in July and will now have 10 games added to that suspension, according to league sources. The violation isn’t believed to be another positive test, McGary reportedly failed to live up to the guidelines of the program. The 24-year-old was expected to open the season in the D-League, so this news won't affect his non-existent fantasy value.
Sep 13 - 11:05 AM

Mitch McGary is unlikely to open the 2016-17 season as a member of the Thunder, according to Royce Young of ESPN.

Young speculates that the trade which brought in Joffrey Lauvergne will likely result in OKC aggressively trying to move frontcourt players like Ersan Ilyasova and McGary to give the team some improved depth at the small forward position. To be clear, nothing is imminent at the moment, and a change in uniform is unlikely to alter the non-existent fantasy values of both McGary and Ilyasova.
Aug 30 - 3:14 PM

The Oklahoman's Anthony Slater writes that Mitch McGary's "other issues have eroded both the Thunder's trust in him and his trade value."

McGary was recently suspended for five games due to a violation of the NBA's drug policy, and it's especially concerning given he was suspended for testing positive for marijuana while in college at Michigan. Although McGary has a potential path to minutes with Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka on different teams, he may once again find himself outside of the Thunder's rotation.

Mitch McGary has been suspended for five games to begin next season for failing the NBA's drug policy.

Not good. While at Michigan, McGary was suspended for testing positive for marijuana. He's played very well in Orlando this week and he would have a chance for minutes with Serge Ibaka and Kevin Durant gone.
Jul 8 - 2:56 PM

Mitch McGary scored 13 points with three boards and two steals against the Mavericks on Saturday.

This is a huge summer league for McGary as he tries to prove his worth to the franchise. McGary looked solid today, shooting 6-of-10 from the field in 26 minutes. After playing a total of 72 minutes last season, playing time won't be any easier to find as he enters his third season in the NBA, as the Thunder acquired Domantas Sabonis with the 11th pick in the draft and acquired Ersan Ilyasova in a trade with the Magic.
Jul 2 - 11:33 AM

Mitch McGary will play for the Thunder's summer league team.

"If I want to prove the player that I am and that I have the potential to be, that I know I can play at this level and be an elite player with some of the guys up there, this is a big time for me to prove myself," McGary said. The big man played a total of 72 minutes in the 2015-16 campaign and his future with the Thunder could be in jeopardy if he doesn't show some improvement this summer.
