G - PHO - OUT
Damion Lee is dealing with a knee injury and will be out indefinitely.
Lee suffered an injury to his meniscus during a recent on-court workout that will leave him sidelined indefinitely. We don't have any hint on when he'll be back, and it's possible that he has to miss a good chunk of the season. Fantasy managers can look for Grayson Allen and Eric Gordon to both get more work for however long Lee is out.
Damion Lee agreed on a two-year deal with the Phoenix Suns with a player option.
Lee should remain a depth guard in the Suns back court.
Damion Lee collected 22 points (3-8 FG, 2-5 3PT, 14-14 FT), seven rebounds and four assists in 31 minutes of Tuesday's 125-113 win over the Warriors.
With Chris Paul, Devin Booker and Cameron Payne out on Tuesday, Lee stepped up off the bench, playing the third-most minutes on the team. The 30-year-old recorded a season-high in points, and he did it by getting to the free throw line and converting all of his 14 attempts. It's unlikely that this performance will be repeated very often this year, but Lee could be considered for DFS if the Suns are forced to play shorthanded again.
Damion Lee is starting on Monday against the Lakers.
Lee is taking the place of Devin Booker in the starting lineup. He is a worthy streamer in deeper leagues.
The Phoenix Suns have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with free agent guard Damion Lee.
It hasn't been clear what Lee was going to do all off-season, but he will ultimately opt for a change of scenery in Phoenix rather than sign back with Golden State. He was solid for the Warriors, and he will provide good bench depth for the Suns. His fantasy value isn't exactly determined yet, but many are hoping for a slight increase in production from last year.
