Warriors forward David Lee’s torn abdominal and abductor muscles were successfully repaired Thursday by Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia, the Warriors announced. He is expected to return to basketball activities in 4 to 6 weeks.
Tonight will be Lee’s eighth missed game after an MRI on April 13 found he had a strained groin and a stress reaction. After seeking the second opinion of Dr. Meyers, it was determined Lee needed surgery. It was performed Thursday morning.
So that means Lee and point guard Stephen Curry are expected to be 100 percent healthy by training camp. Center Andrew Bogut will have arthroscopic surgery on Friday to clean out debris and scar tissue in his fractured left ankle.
The surgery will be performed by Dr. Richard Ferkel in Van Nuys, the same specialist who performed arthroscopic surgery on Curry’s right ankle Wednesday.
