Lee was waived by the Mavericks on Saturday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
The veteran saw just six preseason minutes, and the Mavericks ultimately decided to go a different direction with the final roster. Lee has enough reputation and three-point shooting ability left to land on another NBA team.
Lee scored three points (1-1 FG, 1-1 3PT, 0-1 FT) while playing six minutes of Thursday's 129-127 preseason loss to Minnesota.
Lee returned to the court after missing Dallas' first two preseason games due to the NBA's COVID-19 protocols. The veteran guard will look to continue to ramp up his active ahead of next week's season opener.
Lee is not on the injury report ahead of Thursday's preseason game against the Timberwolves.
Lee missed the Mavs' first two exhibitions while passing through the league's COVID-19 protocols, but he's no longer listed on the injury report, so all signs are that he'll be available.
Lee (not injury related) will remain out for Monday's preseason game against the Bucks.
Lee remains away from the team while going through COVID-19 protocols, so he'll miss a second straight exhibition to begin the season. His next chance to play will come Thursday against Minnesota.
Lee (not injury related) is not yet with the Mavericks and won't be available for Saturday's preseason game against the Bucks.
Lee recently signed a contract with Dallas but needs to go through COVID-19 protocols before joining the team.
Lee was signed by the Mavericks on Friday.
The 13-year veteran will rejoin his old squad after spending last season with the team and missing action in the bubble due to a calf injury. Lee, 35, will likely be battling for backup wing minutes with the likes of Tim Hardaway, Josh Richardson and Dorian Finney-Smith. Lee will join Dallas after clearing medical protocols.
Lee is expected to sign with the Mavericks on Thursday, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports.
The 35-year-old spent the past season and a half in Dallas, and he'll be rejoining the team after hitting free agency. Lee appeared in 46 games and averaged 4.1 points and 1.3 rebounds in 13.3 minutes during his time with the team and should fill a similar role off the bench in 2020-21. He should officially join the Mavericks' roster once J.J. Barea is waived Thursday.
Lee (calf) is out for the remainder of the 2019-20 season, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Townsend notes that Lee is walking with a pronounced limp and has a brace on his lower leg, and that he won't come back at any point this season. Lee's role fluctuated throughout the year, but most of his minutes should go to the likes of Seth Curry, Justin Jackson and J.J. Barea.
Lee (calf) is unavailable for Friday's opener against the Rockets.
Lee underwent surgery in late June to address a calf injury he suffered while working out during the hiatus. It's not clear whether he'll be able to play at any point during the resumed season.
Lee sustained a calf injury while working out during the NBA's hiatus and underwent surgery, Mark Stein of The New York Times reports.
Stein's report doesn't indicate when exactly Lee sustained the injury, but the Mavericks are apparently looking to add another healthy player to the roster Tuesday, when the NBA's one-week transaction window opens. With that in mind, Lee looks like he could be in danger of being sidelined when the season resumes in late July, though the team has yet to officially comment on the veteran wing's status. Over his 24 appearances with Dallas prior to the league-wide shutdown, Lee averaged 4.5 points, 1.3 rebounds, 0.9 triples and 0.8 steals in 14.4 minutes per game.
Lee produced 13 points (5-6 FG, 3-4 3Pt), five rebounds, two assists, two steals and a blocked shot across 29 minutes in Friday's 121-96 win over the Grizzles.
Lee drew the start with Tim Hardaway (shoulder) and Dorian Finney-Smith (hip) both sidelined and put together a decent stat line. The 34-year-old veteran has seen only 20 games on the floor for the Mavericks this season, but if Finney-Smith and Hardaway are slow to recover, Lee could serve as a moderately effective placeholder in the short term.
Lee is not starting Wednesday's game against the Pelicans.
Lee received the spot start in the second half of the back-to-back set Monday in Chicago, but he'll return to the bench for Wednesday's contest. The veteran guard is averaging 3.8 points and 1.2 rebounds in 12.2 minutes over 19 games this season.
Lee totaled four points (2-4 FG), four rebounds and one steal in 21 minutes during Sunday's 111-91 win over the Timberwolves.
Lee has logged double-digit minutes in seven of his last eight appearances, but he has only reached double figures in scoring twice through 18 games here in 2019-20. He has been more involved of late but isn't likely to offer much for fantasy purposes beyond the very deepest leagues.
Lee (coach's decision) didn't see the floor Wednesday in the Mavericks' 130-111 win over the Kings.
Initially listed as starter for the contest, Lee was dropped from the lineup shortly before tipoff and then found himself out of the rotation entirely. Lee had averaged 6.0 points and 1.5 three-pointers in 15.3 minutes while appearing in each of the previous four games, but it doesn't look like there will be room for him to see regular playing time now that Luka Doncic (ankle) is back from a seven-game absence.
Lee will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against Sacramento, Bobby Karalla of the Mavericks' official site reports.
In a late lineup change, Lee was replaced by Jalen Brunson among the starters. On the year, the veteran guard's played a limited role, averaging 10.1 minutes across 14 appearances despite being fully healthy.
Lee will start Wednesday's game against the Kings, Mike Peasley of the Dallas Mavericks Radio Network reports.
Lee's back in the starting five after a two-game run off with the reserves. Though he's held a limited role throughout the year, Lee's playing time has ticked up of late as he's seen at least 12 minutes in each of the past four games. In that span, he's averaging 6.0 points and 1.0 rebound per game.
Lee will come off the bench Saturday against the Hornets.
Lee was handed a start Friday against the Wizards, but he'll return to a bench role. Over the past two games, he's totaled 19 points, three rebounds and one assist in 29 minutes.
Lee will start Friday's game against the Wizards.
Lee saw action Wednesday against the Grizzlies, garnering 12 minutes. That was his first game since Jan. 14. Now, coach Rick Carlisle is opting to start Lee for just the fourth time this season. In his three previous starts, Lee has averaged 2.7 points in 9.0 minutes.
Lee (coach's decision) didn't see the floor Tuesday in the Mavericks' 110-107 loss to the Clippers.
Coach Rick Carlisle expanded the rotation to 11 men after Dwight Powell exited with what was later diagnosed as a season-ending ruptured right Achilles' tendon, but Lee still couldn't get off the bench. The veteran wing has appeared in just two of the Mavericks' last 17 games, and his playing-time outlook doesn't look bound to improve at any point in the near future.
Lee did not play in the Mavs' 121-114 victory against Minnesota on Wednesday.
This marked the sixth straight game the 34-year-old guard did not play, with his last appearance having been in a blowout win against Cleveland on Nov. 22. Lee has only played in five of the Mavs' 21 matches and should be content with any bit of playing time at this point.
