According to the NBA Injury Report, Damion Lee is questionable to go on Thursday against the Mavericks.
The Warriors have a rather long injury report on Thursday that includes Damion Lee being questionable to go. If the veteran is unable to suit up for the Warriors, his minutes will likely shift to newly upgraded Moses Moody, starter Klay Thompson, and bench reserve Gary Payton.
Damion Lee scored 21 points (7-15 FG, 5-10 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go along with five rebounds, two assists and two steals on Tuesday against the Spurs.
Lee got the start with a number of key Warriors sitting out and took advantage of the opportunity. The 21 points were a season-high for Lee.
Golden State Warriors G Damion Lee has enters the league's COVID protocols joining fellow teammates Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole.
The Warriors appear to also be in the midst of a COVID breakout as they will now have three players out due to COVID. All three will likely be out Thursday night unless they test out before than but also may pose a risk to the important Christmas day matchup that is scheduled against the Suns.
Damion Lee totaled 18 points (7-8 FG, 4-4 3PT), five rebounds, one assist, and one steal in the Warriors' 113-98 win over the Kings on Monday.
Lee scored 18.0 points in the Warriors’ win over the Kings, making it his second consecutive game with a double-digit scoring effort. He has played well in his spot starts and should continue to serve as a solid relief while Jordan Poole is out. Lee is worth considering as a cheap value play for your roster, but only if you are willing to accept the risk that comes with his low floor.
Damion Lee has been assigned to the G-League so that he can scrimmage with allay Thompson so that Lee is available for Friday’s tilt.
Lee has been out lately due to the birth of his son and so he will need to get back in game shape before taking the floor, thus he will be assigned to the G-League to be ready for the Warrior’s Friday night tilt.
