JaVale McGee scored 11 points on 5-of-6 shooting with four rebounds and one block over 19 minutes before fouling out in Tuesday's season finale against the Blazers.
McGee started off the season at a torrid top-20 pace and had some speed bumps in the middle of the year, but he backed it up with a top-20 run when it counted in the fantasy playoffs. It all added up to a top-50 campaign for a guy that rose up draft boards late but was still drafted as a late-round pick.

JaVale McGee had himself a sweet Friday night as he punished the Clippers' frontcourt with 18 points (8-of-18 shooting), 10 rebounds and three blocks.
McGee probably would have had an even bigger night had he not been slowed down by some foul trouble early. That said, this is his second straight game where he's blocked three shots. He's been solid with top-90 value over the last week. Mo Wagner was a flop tonight with just five points and a steal to his name in 12 minutes of action.

JaVale McGee scored eight points on 4-of-8 shooting while adding 13 rebounds, an assist and three blocks on Thursday.
McGee logged 21 minutes and the starters were blown out of the water which meant Moritz Wagner only logged 24 minutes and scored 13 points with six rebounds and two assists. Johnathan Williams came off the bench and scored 17 points with 13 rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block in 25 minutes of action and tonight's lines can be treated as blowout specials.

JaVale McGee continued his solid play on Sunday with a 23-point, 16-rebound performance against the Pelicans.
McGee added a steal, a block and three assists to his late-season surge. Look for McGee to continue putting the pedal to the metal as the season winds down, he’ll be a free agent this summer.

JaVale McGee pumped the brakes a bit on Friday, logging 27 minutes against the Hornets and posting 10 points, nine rebounds and a pair of blocks.
McGee has been an early-round beast over the last couple of weeks so we're not fretting about this game too much. Keep him plugged into all lineups the rest of the way. Johnathan Williams collected 13 points on an efficient 6-of-7 from the field in 21 minutes off the bench and looks like the prime beneficiary if McGee did miss time for rest purposes or otherwise.

Reggie Bullock (right plantar fasciitis) and Tyson Chandler (illness) are questionable to play on Friday vs. the Hornets.
With Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and JaVale McGee playing so well lately we don’t think either of Bullock or Chandler will get much run even if they do end up playing.

JaVale McGee continued his hot streak with 16 points and 13 rebounds in a 115-100 loss to the Jazz on Wednesday.
He shot 7-of-15 from the field and added two blocks to the box score. McGee is having the best season of his career with the Lakers as he has maintained top-50 value despite a cold stretch in the middle of the season. He is one of the top fantasy centers right now and will definitely help his owners bring home a championship. Mo Wagner chipped in 13 points and four rebounds off the bench.

Speaking to reporters after Tuesday’s win, JaVale McGee explained how it was only until recently that he was able to recover from a pneumonia that he suffered back in December.
“Just feeling good, that’s all. People don’t realize once you get pneumonia it takes a couple months to get over it." McGee has been a top-5 fantasy asset the last couple weeks averaging 16.7 points to go with 12.7 rebounds, 3.1 blocks and 1.3 steals on 71.4 percent in seven games. We hope that you were able to hold onto him after a rough stretch last month as he is in must-own territory and winning the trophy for a few managers out there.

JaVale McGee went off for 20 points, 15 boards, two assists, two steals and four blocks over 32 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Wizards.
McGee is playing for a deal and with the finish line in sight, he could easily continue to blow it out and play at 100 percent while other players are coasting into the summer. Watch out.

JaVale McGee continued his late-season surge in Sunday's win over the Kings, going 8-of-8 from the field for 17 points, 14 rebounds, a steal and five blocks in 29 minutes of action.
A missed free throw was the only thing standing between McGee and a perfect night. He disappeared for parts in the middle of the season but is back looking like the early-round stud he was to open the campaign. That's two straight monster games and three in his last five, so McGee should be locked and loaded into all fantasy lineups the rest of the way.

JaVale McGee set a new career-high in points on Friday night, going 15-of-20 from the field for 33 points to go with 20 rebounds, a steal and six blocks in 35 minutes against the Nets.
McGee went 3-of-7 from the charity stripe to put a single blemish on a fantastic performance. This game surely swung some weekly matchups out there, and despite L.A.'s spot in the standings they don't appear ready to dial back on McGee's minutes just yet. Tyson Chandler played 13 minutes while Mo Wagner and Johnathan Williams didn't take the floor. Just hope that it keeps up so McGee can put up big numbers as the Lakers play out the string.

JaVale McGee had a great game despite falling to the Pistons on Friday as he scored 20 points and added 13 rebounds, three blocks and a steal in 30 minutes.
This marks the second time in three games McGee has played at least 30 minutes and he double-doubled in that one too. He has top-40 value over his last seven games and with the Lakers tanking, maybe coach Luke Walton has finally found a reason to unleash McGee.
March 12, 2019, 10:32 pmJaVale McGee - C - Los Angeles Lakers
JaVale McGee double-doubled with 10 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks in 33 minutes Tuesday.
McGee has been inconsistent lately, but with the Lakers shutting down players and resting others, there's hope he can get back to some of his early-season success.

JaVale McGee went 8-for-10 from the field on Wednesday night, delivering 16 points, six rebounds, a steal and a block in 21 minutes against the Nuggets.
This is a really tough matchup for guys like McGee but he passed the test for fantasy purposes. He's back on the upswing after a wayward handful of weeks and is inching closer to must-start status again. The big man has a block in eight straight games and is a top-130 player in the last couple of weeks. There was a big lull in the middle of the year but McGee should still end up as one of draft day's best bargains this season.
March 3, 2019, 12:55 amJaVale McGee - C - Los Angeles Lakers
JaVale McGee hit all 10 of his shots on Saturday night to score 21 points in a loss to the Suns.
McGee played 26 minutes off the bench and also added seven rebounds and a block. He's barely been hanging around inside the top-150 over the last month so this was a sight for sore eyes. His continued bench role leaves McGee on shaky ground but he's still posting middle-round value on the full season and will end the year as a draft day steal no matter what. Hope for more of the same going forward.
