Washington's JaVale McGee played 30 minutes tonight and finished with 15 points (7 of 9), 10 rebounds, and a block. More blocks would have been nice, but the important thing here is the playing time. After hovering around 23 minutes for a five-game stretch, McGee has logged 38 and 30 minutes respectively in his last two games. McGee started the season with a bang and then cooled due to decreased playing time. This might be a good time to buy low, as he'll likely be a steal if he starts logging 30+ minutes regularly. You've little to lose, because he has value even when getting just 25 minutes.
