News: Lee (rest) will sit out Wednesday's game against the Nuggets, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Impact: Lee will get a night off in preparation for the playoffs. Look for Marreese Speights to pick up most of the minutes left in his absence.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Apr 14, 2014
News: Lee scored 25 points (12-14 FG, 1-2 FT) while adding nine rebounds and two steals in 28 minutes Monday. Impact: Lee's big night is great news for Golden State and fantasy owners alike. After two rough performances following his return from injuries last week, Lee had one of his most effective games of the season. With Golden State locked into the sixth seed, we'll see what kind of lineup they decide to throw out in the season finale. Keep an eye on what they decide to do with Lee.(RotoWire, )
Apr 13, 2014
News: Lee moved back into the starting lineup Sunday but struggled by finishing with just four points (2-9 FG, 0-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 33 minutes. Impact: This was Lee's second game back from a seven-game absence. It's obvious that his game isn't quite back to where it was before his hamstring injury, but he has two upcoming games to work out the kinks. There was some speculation that he might take a game or two off before the playoffs in order to rest up, but after his poor Sunday outing, a legitimate case can be made in favor of him playing in the final two games of the season to regain his old form.(RotoWire, )

News: Lee (hamstring) returned from a seven-game absence Friday night against the Lakers. He came off the bench to play 25 minutes and scored 10 points (4-12 FG, 2-2 FT), grabbed 10 rebounds, while adding two assists and two steals. Impact: The Lakers have been quietly fighting the 76ers for the title of fantasy's friendliest opponent, and so stat lines against them should be taken with a grain of salt. That said, a double-double in limited minutes is a strong development for anybody, especially a player just returning from injury.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Apr 12, 2014
News: Lee, who returned from a hamstring injury Friday night, assumes he'll be "game to game" in terms of his availability in the regular season's final three games, the San Jose Mercury News reports. Impact: Adding to the game-to-game status is the fact that Golden State clinched a playoff berth with Friday's win over the Lakers, meaning coach Mark Jackson can limit/rest Lee for the upcoming postseason.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Apr 11, 2014
News: Lee (hamstring) will play Friday at the Lakers. Impact: After not playing since Mar. 22, a span of seven games, Lee will return in a bench role. Even if he doesn't play too many minutes, it will be good to see him back on the court, as the Warriors attempt to secure a playoff spot. Draymond Green will start at power forward, but expect Lee to take back his starting role soon, unless he encounters a setback.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Apr 11, 2014
News: Lee (hamstring) is expected to play Friday, CSN Bay Area reports. Impact: Coach Mark Jackson stated his expectation that Lee plays Friday, but the forward will likely come off the bench. Based on that, Draymond Green seems a good bet to start at power forward, though he should see fewer minutes with Lee waiting in the wings.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Apr 10, 2014
News: Lee (hamstring) won't play Thursday against the Nuggets, the Bay Area News Group reports. Impact: This doesn't come as a surprise, as Lee was expected to sit this one out. Consider him questionable to play in the final four games on Golden State's schedule after Thursday.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Apr 10, 2014
News: Lee (hamstring/back) took part in morning shootaround and is considered questionable for Thursday's contest versus the Nuggets, the Bay Area News Group reports. Impact: Because coach Mark Jackson prefers to learn how Lee reacts to the workout, a final decision likely won't be imparted until close to the 10:30 PM ET tip. If Lee's hamstring issue and inflamed back keep him out of commission, Draymond Green will handle power forward once again. Keep in mind, though, that the Warriors have four games remaining on the docket after Thursday's outing -- Friday, Sunday, Monday, and Wednesday -- leaving plenty of time for Lee to revitalize his relevance.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Apr 9, 2014
News: Lee (hamstring/back) still has no timetable to return, but would like to play a few regular season games before the playoffs start, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Impact: Lee has missed six games due to a hamstring injury and nerve inflammation in his back, but in a bit of a surprise move, practiced on Wednesday. Ideally, Lee would like to play in a few of the Warriors remaining five games. He is unlikely to play on Thursday, and his next chance to return will come on Friday, before the Warriors finish their final three games on Sunday, Monday, and Wednesday of next week.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Apr 9, 2014
News: Lee says he has damage in the nerve that connects from his back to his right hamstring but hopes to be back for the playoffs. Impact: Lee says there is no timetable for his return from the injury, which the team initially called a strained hamstring. Lee said he continued to feel pain in his leg last week and two MRI exams showed the irritated nerve.(STATS, 3:31pm)
Wed. Apr 9, 2014
News: Lee, already felled by a strained hamstring, has been diagnosed with nerve inflammation in his back, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. He's definitely not playing Thursday night against Denver and there is no timetable set for a return. Impact: The back issue is preventing Lee from performing any level of team activity in practice. Ideally, Lee would take some time to let it heal, but with the postseason fast approaching, the Warriors might decide to be aggressive. They could opt for epidural injections that would reduce the inflammation and allow him to rehab sooner.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Apr 7, 2014
News: Lee (hamstring) had an MRI on hamstring last week that revealed nerve inflammation, according to coach Mark Jackson, the San Jose Mercury News reports. "He's frustrated right now, and rightfully so," Jackson said. "We don't know how long, but I tell you what, he's doing everything he possibly can to get back on the floor for this basketball team." Impact: Jackson does not know when Lee will be able to return and if he would be able to to come back in time for the start of the playoffs. In the meantime, Draymond Green is starting at power forward.(RotoWire, )
Apr 6, 2014
News: Lee (hamstring) will sit out Sunday's game against the Jazz, Yahoo! Sports reports. Impact: This will be the sixth consecutive contest that Lee has missed due to nerve inflammation. It's unclear exactly when he will be able to play again, but consider him day-to-day going forward.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Apr 5, 2014
News: Lee (hamstring) and center Andrew Bogut (pelvis) could still be a ways from returning, according to coach Mark Jackson, the San Jose Mercury News reports. The coach's comments imply that Lee, who missed his fifth straight game Friday night, will not be ready to go Sunday against the Jazz. Impact: Jackson said neither big man has done any floor work with teammates and that they continue to get treatment and get closer to 100 percent.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Apr 4, 2014
News: Lee (hamstring) will not play Friday, Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Impact: Lee had an MRI on his hamstring Thursday, when fortunately nothing new was revealed. However, with the ailment still bothering Lee, the power forward will sit out a fifth straight game Friday, which bodes well for Draymond Green's fantasy stock. Lee's fantasy owners would be best served to monitor his health on a day-to-day basis.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Apr 4, 2014
News: Lee (hamstring) underwent an MRI on Thursday and didn't sound optimistic to be in the lineup Friday night against Sacramento, the San Jose Mercury News reports. "I'm able to jump, I'm able to slide or do things like that, it's just when I go to sprint or explode and go 100 percent, it still is really tight on me and it's catching," said Lee. Impact: The MRI was just to get another look at the hamstring and no details were shared. Lee added that the injury isn't one he can play through until it's fully healed.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Apr 2, 2014
News: Lee (hamstring) will not play Wednesday versus the Spurs, Project Spurs reports.

Wed. Apr 2, 2014
News: Lee (hamstring) is considered "extremely doubtful" to play Wednesday against the Spurs, CSNBayArea.com reports. Impact: Lee continues to tend to a strained right hamstring and appears poised to miss his fourth straight contest.

Sat. Mar 29, 2014
News: The Golden State Warriors will be without starting center Andrew Bogut and Lee against the Sacramento Kings on Friday night because of injuries.
