HoopsHype David Lee rumors


December 21, 2014 Updates

David Lee wasn't available again on Saturday, but this time, it was only to the media. Lee, who has missed all but about 6½ minutes of the regular season, went through his first full practice since reinjuring his left hamstring on Nov. 5 and appears all-systems-go for a Monday night return against Sacramento. "He looked good, he was moving really well, his hamstring's fine," said coach Steve Kerr. "He told me everything else is sore now, which is a good sign. He's getting back into basketball shape and running a lot of sprints. But this was the first time he's scrimmaged full court, which was a good step." San Jose Mercury-News

Myers disputed the conspiracy theory that they are taking their time with Lee's retunr because the team is winning, saying, "(Lee's timeline is) not so much about the (Warriors') record as it is, 'Let's prevent it from happening again.' It's more about that, being smart about it. He already was cleared (previously), and he practiced a couple of times before he came back last time, but we don't want that to happen again."

Lee's involvement was limited to half court 3-on-3 action at the end of Thursday's practice. The power forward will travel with the team on its three-game trip that opens Saturday against the Mavericks, but Kerr said steps remain before he can return to the court. "The first thing is to play half court," Kerr said. "Then he's got to get up and down the floor and play some full court before he's ready to be out there in a game. He's coming along." The team will see how Lee responds Friday to his work at practice and determine if he's ready for that next step. Lee has played only seven minutes this season and has missed the past 17 games because of a strained left hamstring. San Jose Mercury-News

Warriors forward David Lee was evaluated Tuesday night by the team's training staff, which determined his ailing left hamstring is "making progress" but needs at least another week of rest. Lee sustained the original hamstring strain in the preseason finale on Oct. 24. He returned for the fourth regular season, Nov. 5 against the Clippers, only to aggravate the injury after only seven minutes off the bench. CSNBayArea.com

Warriors forward David Lee will not be available to play this weekend at Houston and Phoenix after aggravating his strained left hamstring Wednesday, according to coach Steve Kerr. Lee is scheduled to undergo an MRI exam Thursday afternoon and could miss even more time after his first game back from the strain Wednesday night lasted only seven minutes before he had to return to the locker room. Lee said he originally suffered the injury during the Oct. 24 preseason finale while getting in some conditioning late in the game, and he needed 11 days before he could make his season debut. "We probably have to be a little more cautious this time," Kerr said of a timeline for Lee's return. San Jose Mercury-News
