David Lee To Have Elbow Surgery

After elbowing Wilson Chandler in the mouth in his return to New York this week, Lee found his elbow swollen and discolored the next morning. From the San Francisco Chronicle: “Power forward David Lee did not travel with the team from Chicago to Milwaukee on Friday, instead returning to the Bay Area for surgery to clean out an infection from the inside of his left elbow. The Warriors said the surgery will be performed by Dr. Frank Chen in Fremont, but they were unable to release a timetable for a return to the court. Early estimates are that Lee will miss about two weeks. ‘Win or lose, we need to come out with more energy and a better focus,” point guard Stephen Curry said. “We need to have a little more fight in us. Things might not go our way offensively, but we can control our defense every night. That’s the test for us.'”
