JaVale McGee Injury: Nuggets C Had Dislocated Shoulder At End Of Game 7

Denver Nuggets center JaVale McGee had a dislocated shoulder in the final seconds of Game 7 against the Los Angeles Lakers after Andrew Bynum fouled him. However, it did pop back into place, reports Nuggets.com writer Aaron Lopez.

This isn't expected to lead to any problems as he enters into restricted free agency this summer. The Nuggets will be able to match any offer sheet McGee might sign this summer, but, as always, the question is how high the Nuggets will go until they won't match a deal.

McGee averaged 8.6 points, 9.6 rebounds and 3.1 blocks during the first round of the playoffs, including a games of 21 points and 14 rebounds and 16 points and 15 rebounds.
