David Lee Plays In First Playoff Game Of His Career, Then Goes Out For Rest Of Playoffs
Well, that was fast. After an all-star regular season with Golden State, during which he easily averaged a double-double (18.5 PPG, 11.2 RPG), David Lee found himself playing in his first playoff series of his 8 year career. Goes to show what getting drafted by and playing 5 seasons for the Knicks will do for your post season prospects. Then, as if a crushing last-second road loss to the Denver Nuggets wasn’t bad enough, he was sent back to depths of Khazad-dûm. You shall not pass the first round, David Lee.
It’s a Knick thing.
Really tough day for me as a competitor & as a teammate, thanks for all the prayers & support! We still got this series,lets go Dubs! #GSW

A grade 3 tear hip flexor tear will sideline him for the duration of the Warrior’s postseason. A postseason that would be expeditiously cut short in his absence were it not for his former Knick teammate/Isaiah Thomas draft pick Danilo Galinari also being out. Cursed? Maybe. Probably. Who knows.
Let’s just say if I were Wilson Chandler I wouldn’t walk under any ladders/cross the street/leave my house.
The loss of Lee will undoubtedly put pressure on Andrew Bogut, who will now be tasked with not-just-letting-André-Miller-waltz-in-for-a-game-winning-layup, among other things. Like scoring in the post and rebounding.
The Warriors and Nuggets meet up again Tuesday @ 10:30 on TNT.
