Lee scored 24 points on 11-of-11 shooting from the field and 2-of-2 from the free-throw line in Friday night's preseason loss to Miami. He added six rebounds and an assist.
The Warriors' new ball-motion offense can sometimes benefit one player more than others and on Friday, that player was Lee. He had been working on his mid-range game in the offseason, but never needed it Friday, instead scoring on a variety of near-the-rim looks.

Lee was given the night off Thursday, the first of a back-to-back set, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Lee is expected back in the lineup for Friday night's preseason game to be played in Kansas City against the Heat.

Lee will not play in Thursday's preseason contest against the Nuggets in Des Moines, the San Francisco Chronicle's Rusty Simmons reports.
The team didn't list a reason for his absence, so it's likely nothing more than a day of rest on the first night of a back-to-back. Draymond Green will get the start in his place Thursday, and Lee should be considered questionable for Friday's matchup with Miami in Kansas City.

Lee left Tuesday's preseason game in the second half and was seen holding a bag of ice on his right hip, CSN Bay Area's Monte Poole reports.
The team hasn't announced an injury for Lee, but considering there was only one quarter left when he was seen on the bench, he probably won't return. Monitor his status in the coming days to see if he has an injury or was just dealing with general soreness.

Lee said he's worked on his mid-range game in the offseason, including a remake of his jump shot, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. "I know I can shoot the ball," Lee said after Wednesday's practice. "All it was about was getting that confidence back after not shooting much last year� I'll be ready to take and make that shot when it's there now."
Lee said he focused on scoring in the paint last season because there were no shortage of jumpers taken by others on the roster. As a result, when Lee did take a mid-range jumper, his accuracy rate fell to 35.7 percent (on 98 shots). The previous season, he connected on 42.1 percent on 235 mid-range attempts. Lee will continue to be a scoring option in the paint -- he averaged 13.1 points in the paint last season -- but he feels the offensive changes implemented by new head coach Steve Kerr will create opportunities for him to shoot outside the paint.

Lee said he is 100 percent healthy after undergoing a procedure to repair a torn abdominal muscle in the offseason, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
This is the same surgery Lee had prior to the 2012-13 season, a year he was named an All-Star. Lee's core didn't begin hurting him until he started his summer training regimen and knew right then he'd need a procedure.

Lee (abdomen) is expected to be ready to participate at the start of training camp, Yahoo! Sports reports.
Lee underwent a minor surgical procedure in June to repair a core muscle in his pelvic area. He will be the starter at power forward for the Warriors this season, according to coach Steve Kerr. Lee resumed working out in the middle of August, giving him over a month of action in his attempt to be in shape for training camp.

Lee has resumed working out after having "minor" surgery in June to mend a core muscle, the CSN Bay Area reports.

Lee (stomach) is said to have an "automatic" starting spot under new Warriors coach Steve Kerr, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Lee was included in trade talks surrounding Kevin Love this summer, but with Love set to join the Cavaliers, Lee remains with the Warriors as the team's starting power forward this season. Although coach Kerr is thought to prefer a 'stretch four' at the position, Lee's production of 18.2 points and 9.3 rebounds last season is certainly welcomed. After overcoming a minor surgery to his pelvic area in July, the veteran big man will once again start next to center Andrew Bogut for Golden State this season. Nonetheless, it will be worthwhile to monitor how Kerr manages Lee's minutes with lineup combinations in the early going.

David Lee has withdrawn his name from the USA national team training camp roster after undergoing a "very minor" surgery to address a core muscle injury.
The Warriors expect Lee to fully recovered by early August, but he doesn't want to rush a return. Warriors coach Steve Kerr stated that Lee is "fine," and added that he's been working out. This seems like a very minor procedure, and Lee should be ready to go for the start of training camp next season.
