Lee (heel) has been ruled out for the remainder of the Mavericks' first round series against the Thunder, Tim MacMahon of ESPN reports. After missing the first two games of the series, Lee returned to play in Games 3 and 4 while battling a partially torn plantar fascia in his right foot. The discomfort proved to be too much, however, and the Mavericks will now hold Lee out for the remainder of the series, which could conclude as early as Monday night if the Thunder are able to get a win on their home floor. Lee, who had six points, four rebounds and five fouls in 16 minutes Saturday, will likely see most of his workload transfer to some combination of Salah Mejri, Zaza Pachulia and Dwight Powell in Game 5.
Lee (heel) is listed as questionable for Game 5 against the Thunder on Monday, Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reports. After missing the first two games of the series, Lee participated in both Game 3 and 4. He's had to get pain-killing injections prior to each game to avoid excessive discomfort, so that will likely be the case again Monday if he takes the court. Over the two outings he's participated in this postseason, Lee has averaged 6.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 0.5 assists over 16 and a half minutes. We should see his status updated again following Monday's morning shootaround, but until then, consider him questionable for Game 5.
Lee (heel) scored six points (3-5 FG) in a loss to the Thunder on Saturday. He added four rebounds and an assist in 16 minutes played. Lee received a pain-killing injection prior to Game 4 and will likely need to do so again Monday to play in Game 5. Dallas continues to be ravaged by injury and an injury to front court teammate Salah Mejri (hip) could open up minutes for Lee.
Lee will get a pain-killing injection in his foot and will be available to play in Game 4 against the Thunder on Saturday, Tim MacMahon or ESPN.com reports. Lee missed the first two games of the series because of plantar fascia in his foot, but made his playoff debut in Game 3 on Thursday. He saw 17 minutes of action during that outing, finishing with six points and two rebounds. Lee averaged just over 17 minutes in 25 games with the Mavericks during the regular season, so barring any in-game setbacks, look for Lee to see similar playing time again on Saturday.
Lee (foot) is considered questionable to play in Saturday's Game 4 against the Thunder, Earl Sneed of Mavs.com reports. Lee has been hampered by a plantar fascia injury for the duration of the series, and it kept him on the sideline for both Game 1 and Game 2. He made his playoff debut in a Mavs uniform in Game 3, finishing with six points and two rebounds in 17 minutes off the bench. It will essentially be a matter of pain tolerance for Lee going forward, and the Mavs will wait until closer to game-time to make an official call on his status.
