Lee is starting Monday's preseason game against the Thunder, ddd reports.
Lee has been held to 3.5 points and two rebounds over three preseason contests, but he'll get a chance to start Monday night. His role during the regular season could be limited, though he'll have an opportunity to make his case for minutes as the preseason winds down.
Lee logged 14 points (6-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 105-94 loss to the Spurs.
Lee returned to the lineup following a one-game absence due to a hip injury. While he didn't start, Lee enjoyed one of his better performances here in the season finale. The 33-year-old wing had a down year and actually averaged fewer minutes per game in Dallas than he did in New York this season. Nevertheless, he's under contract for 2019-20, so perhaps the Mavericks will end up incorporating the veteran into the regular rotation more next fall.
Lee (hip) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Spurs.
Lee didn't play Tuesday, but it's possible he'll take the court for the season finale. If not, he'll end the year averaging career lows nearly across the board.
Lee (hip) did not appear in Tuesday's 120-109 win over the Suns.
Lee was not formally ruled out but didn't see the court in this one. It's possible he returns for Wednesday's season finale versus the Spurs, but there's very little reason to expect that will happen.
Lee (hip) is not in the starting five Tuesday against the Suns, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.
Devin Harris will draw the start during the Mavs' final home game of the year. Lee hasn't been formally ruled out.
Lee is considered a game-time call for Tuesday's game against Phoenix due to a left hip contusion.
Lee was held scoreless over 17 minutes in his previous matchup, but it's unclear if the injury had anything to do with his poor performance. The Mavs should clear up his status closer to tipoff.
Lee totaled 21 points (9-15 FG, 3-6 3Pt), seven assists, four rebounds and three steal over 30 minutes in the Mavericks' loss to the Grizzlies on Friday.
Lee's 21 points on Friday were a season high. After falling out of Dallas' rotation, he drew the start on Friday, and he may see increased playing time over the final three games as the Mavericks try to rack up more losses in preparation for the draft lottery.
Lee is starting Friday against Memphis, Bobby Karalla of the Mavericks' official site reports.
Lee failed to score in 16 minutes off the bench Wednesday against Minnesota, but he'll get another opportunity to start Friday evening. He's joined the first unit for three of his team's previous four contests.
Lee had zero points (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt), one rebound, and one assist in four minutes during Friday's 122-107 loss to the Bucks.
Lee was a healthy scratch during Wednesday's win over the Hornets before barely playing in this his first appearance with the team. While the 33-year-old veteran is under contract through 2019-20, the Mavericks seem focused on developing the younger talent on the roster. Barring a major change of heart, it seems Lee can be left on waiver wires.
Lee (coach's decision) didn't see the floor Wednesday in the Mavericks' 99-93 win over the Hornets.
Though Lee was cleared to make his team debut after last week's trade between the Knicks and Mavericks was finalized, the veteran swingman found himself on the outside of coach Rick Carlisle's rotation. Dallas is presumably interested in moving Lee elsewhere prior to Thursday's deadline, but they could have trouble finding a club willing to cover the money remaining on his four-year, $48 million deal, which runs through 2019-20.
Lee (not injury related) will be available for Wednesday's game against the Hornets, Dwain Price of the Mavericks' official site reports.
Lee will be able to make his Mavericks debut Wednesday. If he takes the floor, it will mark just his third appearance since Dec. 29. It's not immediately clear what role Lee will have on Dallas, though it seems unlikely he'll be vaulted into fantasy relevance.
Lee will not play in Saturday's game against the Cavaliers, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Lee's Dallas debut will be put on hold likely until Wednesday's home game against the Hornets. Lee joins the Mavericks after becoming an afterthought on the Knicks as the team shifted its focus to the younger core of players. And while Dallas is looking to remain competitive, with Harrison Barnes and Dorian Finney-Smith still on the roster, Lee may struggle to find many quality minutes with the Mavs this season.
Lee was traded from the Knicks to the Mavericks on Thursday along with Kristaps Porzingis (knee) and Tim Hardaway in exchange for Dennis Smith, DeAndre Jordan and Wesley Matthews, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Lee's inclusion was essentially a salary dump, as the 33-year-old -- who has been out of the rotation for most of the season -- is still under contract for $12.3 million this season and $12.8 million next season. It's unclear what role Lee will play with his new team, though him and Hardaway could absorb the minutes left behind by Dennis Smith and Wesley Matthews. Lee is averaging just 4.7 points and 2.3 rebounds in 13.3 minutes this season, though he posted averages of 12.0 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 30.4 minutes last season.
The Knicks have made Lee available in trade talks as the Feb. 7 deadline approaches, Marc Stein of ESPN reports.
This shouldn't come as a surprise, as Lee has been mentioned as a potential trade target since the start of the season, but with the deadline nearing, the Knicks will likely amplify their efforts to move the veteran wing. Lee has been out of the rotation for much of the season, and he hasn't appeared in a game since Dec. 27. The 33-year-old is under contract for $12.3 million this season and $12.8 million next season, so if the Knicks are able to get him off the books, they'd clear a decent amount of cap space for the upcoming summer.
Lee (coach's decision) didn't see the floor Thursday in the Knicks' 101-100 loss to the Wizards.
Coach David Fizdale utilized a five-man bench in the London game, but there still wasn't enough room for Lee, who hasn't cracked the rotation since Dec. 27. As a veteran on a rebuilding club ripe with younger wing prospects, Lee may need to be traded elsewhere before he picks up meaningful minutes on a consistent basis.
Lee did not see the floor during Saturday's 129-97 loss to the Jazz.
Lee was expected to return to a reserve role with Tim Hardaway (illness) re-joining the starting lineup. However, the veteran shooting guard was a healthy scratch. At this point, Lee is likely only worth keeping tabs on in the event that a trade or buyout leads to him landing a consistent role elsewhere.
Lee is returning to a reserve role for Saturday's matchup with the Jazz, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.
Lee replaced Tim Hardaway Jr. in the starting lineup for Thursday's loss to the Bucks. Hardaway Jr. will be returning Saturday, which will bump Lee back to a reserve role. The veteran has been in-and-out of the rotation lately, so it remains to be seen what type of workload he will see.
Lee will start Thursday against the Bucks, Knicks radio voice Ed Cohen reports.
Usual starter Tim Hardaway Jr. will miss Thursday's action due to an illness, prompting coach David Fizdale to insert Lee into the lineup. In one previous start this season, Lee posted 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting and four rebounds in 22 minutes.
Lee will start Monday against the Suns, Mike Vorkunov of The Athletic reports.
Lee will join the starting five for the first time all season with the likes of Tim Hardaway (heel), Damyean Dotson (shoulder) and Allonzo Trier (hamstring) all unavailable. He's played more than 20 minutes just once this season, posting seven points, six rebounds, five assists, two steals and a block in that game.
Lee has been recalled from the G League and will be available Friday against the Hornets, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports.
Lee has held a minimal rotation role this season and was sent down to the G League to get some run. He is expected to play Friday, but will miss Wednesday's contest against the Cavaliers.
