Lee didn't miss a field goal during Saturday's win against the Kings, scoring 18 points (5-5 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT) and collecting two steals in 34 minutes. Lee made all four of his shots in the first quarter on route to 10 points but was quiet for the remainder of the game. Despite his accuracy, his production will be limited as long as his shot attempts remain so low. Head coach Dave Joerger is not concerned with getting Lee his touches and the veteran guard remains a low-tier fantasy option unless he can increase his offensive output.
Lee totaled 16 points (6-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 33 minutes during the Grizzlies' 101-99 win over the Pelicans on Monday. Lee is averaging 11.5 points (45.5 FG, 46.2 3Pt, 71.4 FT), 2.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 0.8 steals, and 0.3 blocks in 31 minutes per game over the last four contests. Lee gets the majority of minutes at shooting guard on the Grizzlies, but it's hard to put up jaw-dropping numbers taking less than nine shots per night. Unless Lee starts taking double digit field goal attempts on a regular basis, he is only valuable in the deepest fantasy leagues.
Lee (hip) played 37 minutes in Tuesday's 107-91 loss to the Rockets, scoring 16 points (6-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-3 FT) to go with three rebounds, one assist, and one steal. Lee was back in the starting lineup following a two-game absence due to a left hip contusion, and saw a heavy dose of minutes in the Grizzlies' backcourt with Mike Conley (Achilles) and Matt Barnes (thumb) still sidelined. While Lee produced well in his return, fellow wing Tony Allen excelled in his own right, providing 17 points, seven boards, four assists, and two steals over his 32 minutes. Allen could push Lee for a starting role at shooting guard once Barnes is cleared to return.
Lee (hip) is officially in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rockets, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. Lee missed the last two games with a lingering hip issue, but as expected he'll return to the starting lineup Tuesday. With Lee back in the starting lineup, Tony Allen will shift over to small forward. Mike Conley remains out with an Achilles injury, so the starting lineup should feature Mario Chalmers, Lee, Allen, Jeff Green and Marc Gasol.
Lee (hip) said Monday that he will play in Tuesday's matchup with the Rockets, Ronald Tillery of the Memphis Commercial Appeal reports. A bruised hip has kept Lee off the court for the last two games, but after going through Monday's practice he's set to return Tuesday, which will likely push Tony Allen back to the bench. Memphis' lineup will ultimately be determined by the status of point guard Mike Conley, who was limited at Monday's session due to an Achilles injury. Conley is considered questionable to play, and if he's held out the Grizzlies will likely go with Mario Chalmers at point guard, though Lee did serve as the de facto starting point guard in last week's game against Oklahoma City.
