Michael C. Wright: My bud @Ramona Shelburne & I reporting diagnosis for David Lee is partially torn patella, per sources. He'll have MRI in morning to confirm.
Spurs center David Lee became the club's third player to suffer an injury significant enough to take him out of action, as he injured his left knee in the opening quarter of San Antonio's 120-108 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Saturday night and did not return.

Asked about Lee's status after Game 3 of the Western Conference finals, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said: "I have no idea." Lee injured the knee with 2:57 remaining in the first quarter, after he scored on a layup contested by Draymond Green.
Paul Garcia: Pop said David Lee had a minor injury. If SA absolutely needed him, he could have played. But, Pop chose cautious route.
Tom Orsborn: Lee said he's sitting out as precaution after stepping on somebody's foot last game. He said he'll be ready for Memphis on Thursday. #Spurs
Jeff McDonald: Late to the Tweet button but Spurs report David Lee will miss tonight's game vs Charlotte with a knee contusion.
David Lee was doubtful for Game 1 even before Dallas arrived in Oklahoma City, but the reserve forward may miss the first two games of the series with a tear in his right heel. Lee suffered the injury in Dallas' last game of the regular season Wednesday against San Antonio. Carlisle said Lee is doubtful for Game 2.
Tim MacMahon: Mavs forward/center David Lee has a partial tear of the plantar fascia in his right heel. "Game 2 seems very unlikely, but with the break, hopefully we can continue to get it feeling better," said Lee, who suffered the injury in the regular-season finale. "I'm able to actually put a little weight on it today for the first time. We'll just see how it progresses over these next few days."

Brady Hawk: Erik Spoelstra on Tyler Herro’s injury status: “He’s doing rest and treatment today. He won’t do any court work or anything today.” “We’ll see him in the morning. See the progress he’s made.” Says it’s a wait and see thing
Christos Tsaltas: Asked Erik Spoelstra on how Draymond Green’s comment motivated the Heat locker room. “I don’t know. Each person can find different forms of motivation. We have a big audacious goal that’s motivating enough”, he said. #HEATCulture
