David Lee left the Warriors’ playoff opening loss to the Nuggets on Saturday with an apparent leg injury in the fourth quarter. Lee had trouble running back up the court after falling awkwardly on his right leg under the basket.
The Warriors said he suffered a right hip flexor strain. He didn’t return to the game and finished with 10 points on 4-of-14 shooting and 14 rebounds.
According to NBA.com’s Scott Howard-Cooper, X-rays on the forward were negative. He’s scheduled for an MRI on Sunday. Lee’s status for Game 2 should become a little more clear then.
The Warriors have two days off before Game 2 on Tuesday.
