David Lee Out for the Season With Hip Injury

The Golden State Warriors announced today that forward David Lee will miss the rest of the Playoffs—Lee completely tore his right hip flexor last night in Game 1 against the Denver Nuggets. In a cruel twist of fate, this was David Lee’s first postseason game of his career: “Lee, 29, registered 10 points and 14 rebounds in 29 minutes during last night’s Game 1 loss against the Denver Nuggets before leaving the contest with 11:33 remaining in the fourth quarter due to the injury. In 79 games during the regular season, Lee averaged 18.5 points (15th in NBA), 11.2 rebounds (T-4th), 3.5 assists and 36.8 minutes per contest, earning a spot on the Western Conference All-Star Team. The 6’9” forward led the league with 56 point/rebound double-doubles, becoming the first Warriors player to lead the NBA in the category since Wilt Chamberlain in 1963-64.”

    Damn shame. Seriousy, dude literally deserved to be in the Playoffs. Hope he’ll have a fast and complete recovery.

    hmmm is it just a subjective impression or did the number of star calliber players going down with severe injuries / out for playoff injuries increase during the last 2-3 seasons?

    Landry can play but not the run and gun type. Hopefully they slow it down and make it a series still!

    Sucks, feel for the guy, it looked bad when it happened, then he pulled a Kobe and shot the free throws and I thought it might not be too serious. This is still going to be an entertaining series, but it might have just gotten a little less competitive.
