Warriors All-Star David Lee Undergoes Surgery

David Lee underwent successful surgery this morning to address a torn right hip flexor, the Warriors announced.  The  procedure was performed by Dr. William Meyers at the Vincera Institute in Philadelphia. Lee is expected to begin rehabilitation in the next 10-14 days.

Lee sustained the injury in Game 1 of the first round playoff series against Denver. He missed the next four games before returning to action in Game 6. Lee turned out to be an inspiration, playing spot minutes the rest of the postseason.

He finished the 2013 Playoffs with averages of 5.0 points and 4.7 rebounds in 10.9 minutes over six games.

    Don’t really understand why Jackson decided to play him, even with limited minutes, after he got hurt. Yes, I understand the “let’s be inspired” approach the first time around, but was it really necessary to play him in the other couple games and risk further injury?

    Get well D Lee 🙂
