The Nuggets just can’t catch a break. JaVale McGee had surgery this morning to repair his fractured left tibia, the team announced. Nuggets GM Tim Connelly indicated in the release that the procedure is season-ending.
It’s just yet another difficult blow to the Nuggets, who also saw Danilo Gallinari and Nate Robinson go down with season-ending injuries. Ty Lawson has also struggled to stay healthy this season and Andre Miller‘s situation has been a further complication for the hard-luck 2013/14 Nuggets.
McGee, 26, has been out of action since November and saw just five games of action this season. The athletic big man averaged 9.1 PPG and 4.8 RPG last season for Denver.
