Kenneth Faried is set to return, David Lee gets bad news.

Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried is set to return for Game 2 on Tuesday against the Golden State Warriors - he may not start, according to the Denver Post's Benjamin Hochman. This is great news for George Karl and the for rebounds everywhere.

Very unfortunate news on Golden State Warriors forward David Lee. His MRI today revealed a torn right hip flexor, according to CBS Sports' Ken Berger.

Lee will miss the rest of the playoffs. He averaged 23 points and 10 rebounds against the Nuggets during the regular sesaon and in 29 minutes during Game 1 he had 10 points and 14 rebounds. This is a big loss for the Warriors, but with Carl Landry and Draymond Green - Mark Jackson has some options.
