JaVale McGee struggles in Thursday's loss

by Dave Kluge | Lakers Correspondent | Fri, Feb 7th 8:19am EST

JaVale McGee scored four points (2-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt), grabbed five rebounds, dished one assist, and blocked a shot over 16 minutes in Thursday's 121-111 home loss to the Rockets.

Fantasy Impact:

McGee only saw the court for 16 minutes last night as his rim protecting was rarely needed against the Rockets' small ball lineup. Anthony Davis has a lock on paint duties for the Lakers and McGee only seems to see the court when he needs a breather. Although McGee is averaging 3.5 blocks per minutes, good for third overall in the league, his 16.9 minutes per game don't garner enough excitement to make him a go-ahead start every night.
