David Lee PF/C GS 1 Month

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.

Lee (hamstring) is only expected to play 12-15 minutes against the Lakers on Tuesday, The San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Lee is working his way back from a significant left hamstring injury and will just be getting his toes wet before coach Steve Kerr allows him to play a full compliment of minutes. On top of that, the Warriors have been arguably the best team in basketball this season which is just another reason why there's no reason to rush Lee back onto the court and potentially risk further injury.

Lee (hamstring) returned to action in Monday night's win over the Kings. He scored six points with seven rebounds and one blocked shot in 16 minutes off the bench.

Lee had appeared in one game this season, playing seven minutes way back in the fourth game, but aggravated his hamstring injury. We suspect his playing time will bump up in the coming games, though whether he enters the starting lineup is unclear. One thing that is clear is that Lee's return should help bolster the center position where Golden State is dealing with the iffy status of Andrew Bogut (knee).

Lee (hamstring) is active for Monday's contest against the Kings.

Slated to make his first appearance since Nov. 5, Lee will come off the bench behind a starting frontcourt of Draymond Green and Festus Ezeli. In his initial appearances, Lee's workload will be watched closely, and don't expect a return to the starting lineup anytime soon due to the Warriors' 22-3 start to the season.

Lee (hamstring) went through a full practice Sunday and is expected to play Monday against the Kings, Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Barring a setback, it appears as though Lee will return to the court for the first time since Nov. 5. Coach Steve Kerr indicated that Lee's minutes will be monitored initially, and the forward will likely come off of the bench for the foreseeable future. Lee could return to the starting lineup at some point down the road, but after jumping out to a 22-3 start, the Warriors aren't likely to tinker with their starting five right away.

Lee (hamstring) returned to practice Saturday, CSNBayArea.com reports.

Coach Steve Kerr said Lee practiced without limitation but added that he will monitor Lee's minutes closely following a month-and-a-half layoff. With Andrew Bogut (knee) expected to miss a couple weeks, Lee may be tasked with the role of high-post initiator on offense, perhaps starting Monday against Sacramento.

Lee (hamstring) could serve as a high-post initiator on offense, a role Andrew Bogut had been filling before he injured his knee, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

With Bogut out for "a couple of weeks," according to head coach Steve Kerr, the coach feels Lee has the passing skills to fill in at the high post. Of course, the question remains when exactly will Lee be ready to play. Kerr is hoping Monday against Sacramento.

Lee (hamstring) is expected to return next week assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks in practice, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Lee has been dealing with a nagging hamstring issue all season, but it appears he could be ready to return again at some point next week. The team is off until Monday, but has games Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Lee rejoining the lineup will be a boost for the Warriors, who are currently without Andrew Bogut for a unknown period of time.

Lee (hamstring) is listed as out for Thursday's game, the San Francisco Chronicle's Rusty Simmons reports.

The Warriors won't play again until Monday, so Lee will have some more time to continue to rest his hamstring. Draymond Green and Marreese Speights will continue to benefit from his absence.
