OAKLAND — Warriors forward David Lee will return to the starting lineup in Tuesday night’s game against Charlotte after missing the previous contest with a sprained left shoulder and strained left hip.
Lee did not play in the Warriors’ 95-90 win at Utah on Friday.
Meanwhile, backup center Jermaine O’Neal’s declaration on Twitter that he would play against Charlotte after having missed two months recovering from wrist surgery was confirmed by coach Mark Jackson.
“Thank God I follow Jermaine on Twitter,” Jackson said with a laugh.
“Having a true backup center and a guy that can also move and play some power forward position makes a difference, so it’s great to have him back. I’ll read how he looks. I’ll be in constant contact with him as far as how he feels, and we’ll go from there.”
