Warriors' Lee out at least 2 weeks with injury

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) The Golden State Warriors say an MRI on forward David Lee showed a strained left hamstring and he will be reevaluated in two weeks.

The team announced the diagnosis Friday, a day after Lee underwent the exam. Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Thursday that Lee would not travel with the team for games at Houston on Saturday and Phoenix on Sunday.

The two-time All-Star forward sat out the first three games of the season because of a strained hamstring. He scored six points in 7 minutes in the first half of Golden State's 121-104 win over the Clippers on Wednesday night before hurting his hamstring again.

Draymond Green will continue to start in Lee's place. Marreese Speights and Harrison Barnes are also expected to see time at power forward.
