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 (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.

Mitch McGary (foot) went through portions of OKC's practice on Saturday.

It's still unclear when McGary might return from his left foot fracture. With Steven Adams starting and Kendrick Perkins playing well off the Thunder bench, there may not even be space in the rotation for McGary.
Nov 22 - 1:37 PM

Mitch McGary (foot) finally shed his walking boot.

The rookie was spotted "limping around," but he's getting closer to returning. McGary isn't expected back until at least mid-November, but clearly he's progressing. We would not expect any kind of significant role when McGary is healthy enough to debut.
