McGee has not played since Dec. 5, largely because of a strained muscle in his lower left leg. More recently, he was taken off of Denver's injury report but still held out by coach Brian Shaw.
Analysis: McGee participated in game-planning during a shootaround earlier Wednesday and then was cleared to play after pre-game warm-ups, increasingly his chances of getting back on the court. McGee had one of his best games this season in a victory over the Pelicans in Denver on Nov. 21. He scored 14 points and grabbed eight rebounds in about 19 minutes coming off the bench.
