Warriors PF David Lee Out For The Remainder Of The Season

Monday April 16th, 2012

Golden State Warriors power forward David Lee is out for the remainder of the season with a strained groin, according Contra Costa Times

"The doctors called me and said you've got to shut this guy down," Warriors general manager Larry Riley told the paper.

The morning after scoring a game-high 30 points in a loss to Dallas, Lee had an MRI to find the source of his pain. The MRI revealed a strained groin and a stress reaction. This season, Lee was averaging 20.1 points and 9.6 rebounds per game.  With the ninth worst record in the NBA, the Warriors (22-37) next face one of the league’s best San Antonio Spurs (42-16) Monday night.
