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.
