Lee will play in Game 5 on Wednesday against Memphis, Diamond Leung of the Mercury News reports.

Lee played 15 minutes off the bench and scored five points in Monday's win over the Grizzlies. With Marreese Speights sidelined for the remainder of the series with a calf injury, Lee should continue to get minutes off the bench. He will likely be a low-end fantasy option for the remainder of the series, however.

Lee could see additional time on the court over the next week with the injury to Marreese Speights (calf) according to coach Steve Kerr, the Mercury News reports.

Speights was diagnosed with a strained right calf Sunday and has been ruled out for at least one week. Lee has seen just nine total minutes through the first three games of the Memphis series, so even a limited role in Kerr's rotation will be an improvement. Although, Speights was only averaging eight minutes during the same time span so Lee likely isn't in store for a significant boost in playing time if does in fact absorb Speights spot in the rotation.

Lee (back) returned to action in the Warriors' second round opener against the Grizzlies, logging two rebounds in four minutes of action.

Lee hasn't logged a game since April 13, so it's an encouraging sign to see him return to action at a good time. The Warriors appear to be breezing through the Playoffs with ease, which means Lee will likely see his minutes rise up gradually and not instantaneously. He adds depth to the Warriors' front court and should see improvement over the next few games.

Lee (back) expects to play in the Warriors' second-round series, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Lee missed the whole first round due to a lower-back strain, but it sounds as though he'll play more in the second series. While the team was able to pass through the Pelicans relatively easily, extra big bodies could be helpful when potentially facing the Grizzles' Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol.

Lee (back) was available to play in Game 4 against the Pelicans but ultimately logged a DNP-CD.

The Warriors are probably being cautious in Lee's return, and it may be awhile before he returns to his usual minutes load. Consider him a game-time decision for the Warriors' second round opener against either the winner of the Portland-Memphis series.

Lee (back) will be available off the bench for Game 4 against the Pelicans on Saturday, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Lee managed to take part in Friday's practice and has the chance to compete Saturday. However, he hasn't played in almost two weeks and will most likely be eased back into the swing of things upon his eventual return to the hardwood.

Lee (back) is not currently listed on the injury report for Saturday's Game 4 against the Pelicans, John Dickinson of 95.7 The Game reports.

Lee missed the first three games of the playoffs and seems to be in line to make a return Saturday. Although, he'll have to make it through Saturday's morning shootaround before officially taking the court. Even if he does make a comeback, expect him to play limited minutes off the bench as coach Steve Kerr looks to ease Lee back into the swing of things.

Lee (back) will not play in Game 3 against the Pelicans on Thursday, Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Previously considered doubtful, Lee will officially miss his third straight game of the series. He continues to nurse a strained lower-back, and with the Warriors up 2-0 on an inferior opponent, the team has not reason to rush him back. Lee should be considered questionable for Game 4, but it's possible he could aim to return in the second round.

Lee (back) is listed as doubtful for Game 3 on Thursday, Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Lee has missed the first two games of the Warriors' series with the Pelicans and it appears that he'll likely miss Game 3. Andre Iguodala and Marreese Speights have been getting most of the front court minutes off the bench in Lee's absence.

Lee (back) will not play in Monday's Game 2 against the Pelicans, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Lee missed Game 1 on Saturday and there's a real possibility that he'll continue to sit for the duration of the series against the Pelicans, especially if the Warriors take a 2-0 lead Monday night. Consider Lee out with continued lower-back issues until the Warriors say otherwise.
