Michigan's Mitch McGary will miss the NBA draft combine. "Back is better, but still not quite ready for drills & athletic testing," ESPN Insider Chad Ford tweeted.

If you'll recall, McGary's stock soared during the 2012-13 NCAA tournament as the Wolverines reached the championship game, putting him into the lottery conversation. This combine could have been an opportunity for McGary to show that he's over the back injury that limited him to only eight games as a sophomore and required season-ending surgery in December.

So how will being unable to participate in the combine affect his draft stock?

I reached out to ESPN Insider Jeff Goodman for his take on what it could mean for McGary, as well as some of the others who won't participate.
