Coach Steve Kerr said after Tuesday's 124-97 loss to the Mavericks that Lee will be active for Thursday's game against the Nuggets, as the Warriors plan to convert his two-way deal into a standard NBA contract, Nick Friedell of ESPN.com reports.

Golden State has already re-signed Marquese Chriss to fill Lee's two-way spot, so expect the organization to announce a multi-year for the 27-year-old swingman later in the day. Before missing the Warriors' past two games after having spent the maximum 45 days at the NBA level allowed as per the terms of his two-way deal, Lee had solidified himself as the team's starting shooting guard. Since moving up to the top unit, Lee has averaged 14.2 points, 6.9 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.6 three-pointers and 1.2 steals in 31.8 minutes over 13 games, production that makes him a worthy roster option in most 12-team leagues.
