24-year old center JaVale McGee has not been the force the Nuggets thought they were getting when they dealt Nene to the Wizards at the trade deadline. McGee has played in 16 games (5 starts) for the Nuggets so far this year and he is averaging 20.8 minutes, 9.3 points, 5.8 rebounds, 0.4 assists and 1.6 blocked shots per game. McGee has now played in 57 games (45 starts) overall this year for the Nuggets & Wizards and he is averaging 25.6 minutes, 11.1 points, 8.0 rebounds, 0.5 assists and 2.2 blocked shots per game. The Nuggets are going to need McGee to step up his game in the playoffs if they are going to advance past the first round.
