Lee started in place of Draymond Green (rest) and scored 12 points (6-8 FG) with four rebounds and one assist in 21 minutes Saturday against Milwaukee.

Even in a starting role, Lee failed to fire, and is averaging just 8.2 points and 5.4 rebounds this season. In order to consider Lee, even with the Warriors resting players, you'll need to be in a fairly deep league at this point.

Lee is starting at power forward in place of Draymond Green (rest) on Saturday against the Bucks.

Lee is a great play in daily games. Unfortunately, this news came out too late for most lineups to be changed. He should go back to a bench role with Green expected to play in the Warriors' next game Tuesday against the Clippers.

Lee contributed seven points, seven rebounds, two assists, and one block in 20 minutes off the bench against the Pelicans on Friday.

Lee's minutes have been hard to predict of late which makes him a risky option across all formats. In evidence of this, he's sat out four of the last nine games but has also played at least 20 minutes in three instances over that same time period. As a result, fellow bench players like Marreese Speights have similar value to that of Lee despite the fact that Lee is only two years removed from being an All-Star.

Lee was a DNP-Coach's Decision on Wednesday against Atlanta.

Even though Wednesday's game was a blowout in which Steve Kerr used six of his reserves, Lee did not see any playing time. Lee's minutes continue to be very up-and-down as he has fallen further and further back in Golden State's rotation.

Lee made his first start of the season Friday night and scored 13 points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 31 minutes in a loss to Denver.

Golden State head coach Steve Kerr rested a bunch of players, including center Andrew Bogut, paving the way for Lee's start. It's been a difficult time for Lee of late, having been a healthy DNP in three of the previous four games.

Lee will get the start at center Friday, the San Francisco Chronicle's Rusty Simmons reports.

Andrew Bogut is getting the night off to rest, so Lee will start in the frontcourt alongside Draymond Green. Lee now becomes a very enticing play in daily leagues, but look for Bogut to get back in the starting lineup sooner than later.

Lee will play in the Warriors' back-to-back set Friday in Denver and Saturday versus the Knicks, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

As the result of a coach's decision, Lee has missed three of the past four games, but Steve Kerr mentioned Thursday that the veteran forward will take part in the upcoming back-to-back. In nine games played since the break, Lee has averaged 6.9 points (on 60 percent shooting), 5.4 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and 0.7 steals in 16 minutes.

Lee, who did not play for the third time in the last four games Wednesday, said he's okay with the decision of coach Steve Kerr not to play him, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. "I am never going to put myself ahead of the team," Lee said. "We're winning, and that's all that matters."

Until recently, Lee could be counted on for 18-20 minutes a night and an occasional night of double-digit production. But the Warriors are going small more often and Kerr needs bodies who can defend the three-point line. If a big man is needed, Marreese Speights who can space the floor with his outside shooting is a better fit.

Lee did not play in Monday night's win over the Suns. It was the second time in three games that Lee's been a DNP.

Head coach Steve Kerr has found a small-lineup combination that's been working well for Golden State and it's reduced Lee's usage. He's averaging 7.5 minutes per game in the last six.

Lee, who did not play in Friday's win over the Mavericks, played 19 minutes in Sunday's win over the Clippers. He had four points, six rebounds and one assist Sunday.

Lee's playing time has taken a dip the last week. In the four previous games, he saw a combined 26 minutes including Friday's DNP. His minutes may fluctuate depending on head coach Steve Kerr's deployment of a smaller lineup, something that's been an effective tool in the coach's arsenal.
