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.

Lee (back) has been ruled out for Game 1 on Saturday, Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Lee continues to battle a strained lower back, and the team will hold him out Saturday. Given the favorable first-round matchup, the Warriors will not rush Lee back, so it's possible he could miss additional games. Look for Marreese Speights to pick up some extra minutes in Lee's stead.

Lee (back) is officially listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Pelicans, Monte Poole of CSN reports.

Lee missed two of the final four regular season games and played sparingly down the stretch while nursing a nagging back issue. His questionable designation is not overly encouraging, but more will be known after he's evaluated Friday. Given the Warriors' favorable first-round matchup and overall depth, Lee likely won't be asked to play until he's 100 percent.

Lee (back) will be held out of Wednesday's game against the Nuggets, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports.

Lee is battling a minor back issue, and the Warriors will keep him out Wednesday in an effort to keep him fresh for the start of the postseason. Coach Steve Kerr did say Tuesday that he anticipates playing his regulars Wednesday, however.

Lee returned to the bench Saturday with a healthy Draymond Green available, but did not enter the contest at all.

If Lee was added to any fantasy team with Green out, now is the time to cut the former All-Star and find someone who will actually play minutes down the stretch consistently. Lee has averaged just 8.4 points and 5.5 rebounds in 19 minutes per game this season.

Lee continues to start with Draymond Green (shin) out. Tuesday, he scored seven points (3-7 FG, 1-2 FT) in addition to picking up six rebounds and one assist in 21 minutes.

Lee has seen about seven minutes per game more as a starter now, but his numbers aren't all that drastically different as a starter. In 41 games off the bench this season, he's averaging 4.3 fewer points per game than a starer but is averaging more assists, rebounds, steals and blocks.

Lee will receive the start Thursday in place of the the injured Draymond Green (shin).

Lee starting was a discussed scenario Thursday as coach Steve Kerr indicated he was considering resting Green. With Green out, Lee will make his third straight start for the Warriors.

Lee may get another start Thursday against the Suns as Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said he might rest Draymond Green (shin) for a third straight game, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Lee has replaced Green in the starting lineup the last two games, producing 29 points and 11 rebounds in wins over the Bucks and Clippers. With Kerr in full-on rest-for-the-playoffs mode, Lee is expected to get an uptick of playing time over the final few weeks.

Lee had 17 points (8-12 FG, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, and one assist in 30 minutes on Tuesday.

Lee got the start with Draymond Green out with a shin injury. If Draymond Green misses any time witht the injury or with extra rest for the playoffs, expect Lee to start in his place as his value increases immensely.

Lee will get the start Tuesday against the Clippers in the absence of Draymond Green (shin), Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Lee will make only his third start of the season after starting 67 of the 69 games in which he played in 2013-14. Green is only expected to miss one or two games, and if he's held out again Thursday versus Phoenix, Lee will remain in the starting five. Lee's production has been fairly quiet of late - he's averaging 6.6 points per game in March - but he should see an increase in minutes, as should James Michael McAdoo.
