David Lee PF/C GS 3 Days

Lee scored a season-high 24 points (10-of-17 FG, 4-of-4 FT) with nine rebounds and six assists in a season-high 30 minutes in Tuesday night's loss to the Bulls. He got a chance for more playing time when Andrew Bogut (flu) was scratched just before tip-off.

There's a good chance Bogut returns for the Warriors' next game Friday night at Utah, so Lee's scoring outburst may be a short-lived thing. Coming off the bench has certainly impacted Lee's scoring production -- this was his ninth double-digit scoring effort in 19 games and he sits right at 10.0 points per game -- but the big man is averaging nine boards per game in the last six.

Lee scored 18 points (8-of-13 FG, 2-of-5 FT) with eight rebounds, one assist and one blocked shot in 25 minutes in Saturday night's 131-106 win over the Rockets.

This was Lee's most significant contribution to any game this season as the points, field-goal attempts, rebounds and playing time were season highs or tied season highs. The blowout win contributed to his opportunities, but the power forward who missed a quarter of the season with a hamstring injury, is getting his game in order. Lee has averaged 24 minutes per game over the past four.

Lee scored eight points with five rebounds in 17 minutes off the bench in Friday night's win over the Cavaliers. In 10 games this season, he's averaging 9.9 points and 5.1 rebounds in 17.9 minutes per game.

This was the second straight game Lee's been under 20 minutes of playing time. His production is fine for someone averaging 18 minutes per game -- the lowest average since Lee's rookie season -- but it's certainly not what fantasy owners expected when bidding on or selecting Lee in the preseason.

Lee came off the bench for 23 minutes against the Raptors on Friday and registered 12 points, seven rebounds, one steal and two blocks.

Lee is expected to come off the bench moving forward and Friday's outing was likely what should be expected from the relegated power forward at this point in the season. There's always the chance that coach Steve Kerr could move Lee into the starting lineup at some point in the future, although Draymond Green has played very well and certainly deserves to start over Lee.

Lee will remain the backup power forward to Draymond Green, according to head coach Steve Kerr, CSN Bay Area reports. "With David, I wasn't planning on bringing him off the bench," Kerr said. "But he got hurt. He had a great preseason. He was going to be the starting (power forward). He got hurt. I put Draymond out there. Draymond took the job."

Kerr is confirming what has been presumed for weeks. Lee, who played just seven minutes through the first quarter of the season due to a hamstring injury, is no longer on a minutes restriction but will be coming off the bench for the forseeable future. He could potentially slide over to start at center on some nights while Andrew Bogut (knee) and Festus Ezeli (ankle) are out indefinitely.

Lee is no longer on a minutes restriction, Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Lee has gradually increased his workload since returning to the court on Dec. 22. He played fewer than 20 minutes in each of his first four games but finally broke the 20 minute threshold Tuesday against the Sixers, scoring 13 points in 25 minutes. With the restriction now lifted, Lee will likely play between 20 and 30 minutes off the bench per night.

Lee played a season-high 25 minutes in Tuesday night's 126-86 win over the 76ers. He scored 13 points (5-of-9 FG, 3-of-4 FT) with four rebounds, two assists and two blocked shots in the win.

Lee is still rounding into shape and was able to take advantage of Tuesday's glorified scrimmage to extend himself a bit. He's reached double-digit scoring in four straight games.

Lee scored 10 points (3-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT) with seven rebounds, one assist and two blocks during Saturday's win over the Timberwolves.

Lee continues to be on a minutes restriction, but has managed to score in double digits in three straight games. He remains behind Draymond Green in the rotation, but has a shot to pick up some minutes at center should Andrew Bogut continue to miss games due to injury. Lee is a back-end option with upside in most leagues until he's given more minutes.

Lee scored 11 points with three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 19 minutes in Thursday night's loss to the Clippers.

The playing time was the most in the three games since Lee returned from a hamstring injury. The Warriors are dealing with injuries to Andrew Bogut (knee) and Festus Ezeli (ankle), so the opportunity is there for Lee to grow into a larger share of playing time.

Lee contributed 12 points (4-8 FG, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, and a steal in 18 minutes coming off the bench Tuesday night against the Lakers.

Lee was expected to play between 12 and 15 minutes Tuesday night, but slightly eclipsed that number with 18 minutes on the floor against the Lakers. In his two games since returning from injury, Lee has 18 points and 14 rebounds total in 34 minutes played. It looks as though he'll continue to be eased into more playing time, but his play in this limited sample size is encouraging.
