Warriors' Damion Lee: Career-high 20 points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee logged 20 points (7-13 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 27 minutes during Tuesday's 112-103 win over the Pelicans.

Lee amassed career highs in scoring and rebounding while matching his career high in made threes. The 26-year-old rookie has appeared in four straight games, and with the Warriors likely to rest most of their top players during Wednesday's regular season finale versus the Grizzlies, he's a good bet to earn a sizable share of minutes once again.

Warriors' Damion Lee: Available, but doesn't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee (ankle) dressed for Thursday's game against the Kings but didn't see any minutes in the Warriors' 125-123 victory.

Lee, one of the Warriors' two-way players, hasn't been included in the rotation all season, so it's not surprising he wasn't summoned from the bench in a tight affair. His availability is probably the more notable takeaway, as Lee had been tending to a left ankle injury earlier this month before returning to action Feb. 10 with the G League's Santa Cruz Warriors. Lee will likely head back to the G League in short order and see most of his minutes with the affiliate moving forward.

Warriors' Damion Lee: Sits Wednesday with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee did not play in Santa Cruz's 95-88 win over Stockton on Wednesday due to a left ankle injury.

Lee has been bouncing back and forth between the Golden State and Santa Cruz Warriors throughout the season and it's clear why. Lee's ability to score has helped net him NBA playing time, as shown in his last game with Santa Cruz, where he scored 29 points on 52.9 percent shooting back on February 1. If Lee can get back on the court and continue developing, the second-year G League star should be able to find more consistent time on Golden State's bench, and might even get reserve minutes for the reigning NBA champions.

Warriors' Damion Lee: Excelling in G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee totaled 20 points (7-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and one steal across 28 minutes Wednesday in the G League Santa Cruz Warriors' 116-82 win over the Austin Spurs.

In his third season in the G League, Lee has been a go-to option for Santa Cruz, averaging 19.9 points (on 47.1 percent shooting from the floor), 5.4 boards, 1.6 assists, 1.5 three-pointers and 1.0 steal in 31.7 minutes per game over 14 appearances. As a two-way player, Lee occasionally makes cameos at the NBA level, but all of his action has come exclusively in the G League since Christmas Day.

Warriors' Damion Lee: Leads bench in scoring during loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee netted 13 points (5-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds and one steal across 27 minutes in the Warriors' 123-95 loss to the Thunder on Wednesday.

Lee saw a season-high allotment of minutes and equaled the season best in scoring he'd established two games ago. It remains to be seen how long the 26-year-old's stint with the NBA club lasts, but he's now seen between 18 and Wednesday's 27 minutes in the last trio of contests. Lee displayed some upside last season over 15 games (11 starts) with the Warriors, averaging 10.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.3 steals across 26.9 minutes.

Warriors' Damion Lee: Back from G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee was recalled from the G League on Monday, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.

Lee will return from the Santa Cruz Warriors to provide some emergency depth with Andre Iguodala (rest) sitting out Monday's game against the Grizzlies.

Warriors' Damion Lee: Active for Friday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee (foot) will be available for Friday's game against the Jazz, Mark Medina of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Lee failed to take the court in the season opener due to a foot injury, but he's good to go for Friday's tilt. With Andre Iguodala (calf) ruled out, Lee is active and could see minutes off the bench.

Warriors' Damion Lee: Ruled out for season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee has been ruled out for the Warriors' season opener Tuesday against the Thunder due to plantar fasciitis in his left foot.

The injury prevented Lee from taking the floor at any point during the preseason, though he dressed for two exhibition contests. Lee is presumably still rehabbing the injury and looks like he could be at risk of missing the Warriors' initial contests of the season while he continues to recover. Once he's back to optimal health, Lee, who is on a two-way contract, will likely report to the G League's Santa Cruz Warriors. Santa Cruz opens its schedule Nov. 3.

Warriors' Damion Lee: Cleared to play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee (foot) has been cleared to play Wednesday against the Lakers, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.

Lee was held out of Monday's game. The time off seems to have done him some good. He'll attempt to make enough of an impressive to secure a spot on the final roster.

October 8, 2018 09:57 PM
Warriors' Damion Lee: Out with foot issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee won't play Monday against the Suns due to a left partial plantar fascia release.

It's unknown when Lee suffered the injury, but he'll be held out of Monday's preseason action. He's unlikely to make the final roster and should begin the regular season in the G-League.

Warriors' Damion Lee: Signs two-way contract with Warriors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee agreed Tuesday to a two-way contract with the Warriors, Chris Haynes of ESPN reports.

Lee spent the bulk of last year in the G-League, but when he did get a chance late in the season with Atlanta, he took advantage of his NBA reps. The 25-year-old saw action in 15 games and averaged 10.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.0 three-pointer across 26.9 minutes. He'll now join Golden State on a two-way deal and while that likely means Lee will spend much of the year in the G-League once again, there's still an opportunity for him to be with the Warriors for a total of 45 days at the big league level. That means Lee will likely provide some emergency depth most nights.

Damion Lee: Set for unrestricted free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee wasn't tendered a qualifying offer from the Hawks and will become an unrestricted free agent, Michael Cunningham of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Lee earned a pair of 10-day contracts late last season with the Hawks and eventually signed on for the rest of the campaign. In 15 games, the 25-year-old averaged 10.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.3 steals across 26.9 minutes. That was some solid production considering his status as a G-League player for much of the season, so despite becoming a free agent, Lee shouldn't have an issue finding his way on to a training camp roster. That doesn't necessarily guarantee him a final roster spot, however, and Lee could start the season in the G-League once again.

Hawks' Damion Lee: Productive in NBA
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee appeared in 15 games with the Hawks in 2017-18 and mustered 10.7 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game.

Lee's 2017-18 journey to starting guard at the end of the season for Atlanta started in the G League where he was tearing it up for the Santa Cruz Warriors. The former Louisville Cardinal was productive in his time in the NBA as well, and his highest-scoring output came on March 30 when he poured in 20 points against the 76ers. Lee should be able to find a two-way contract this summer when free agency opens up.

Hawks' Damion Lee: Will rejoin starting five Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee will start at point guard for Sunday's game against the Celtics.

Lee was placed in a bench role for the first time in two weeks during Friday's tilt with the Wizards, though he still ended up tallying 26 minutes. However, after a one-game stint with the reserves, Lee will get bumped back up to the starting five and will actually set some work at point guard, rather than shooting guard. That sends Isaiah Taylor to a bench role in the corresponding move. Barring some overall struggles, Lee could push for 30-plus minutes.

Hawks' Damion Lee: Moving back to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee will shift to the bench Friday against Washington, Chris Miller of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Lee has been the regular starter at shooting guard over the past two weeks, but he'll be unseated by DeAndre Bembry on Friday. Still, Lee projects to hold a fairly significant role off the bench. The 25-year-old is averaging 12.6 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 29.0 minutes per game over his last five contests.

Hawks' Damion Lee: Fills box score in Tuesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee totaled 16 points (6-19 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, and three steals in 37 minutes during Tuesday's 101-98 loss to the Heat.

Lee wasn't efficient as a scorer, but he did find a way to contribute in every category except blocks. Lee earned a career high minute total and hauled in a career high in rebounds. He is expected to sign with the Hawks for the remainder of the campaign, and seems like a solid bet to keep seeing plenty of minutes.

Hawks' Damion Lee: Expected to sign with Hawks for rest of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee is expected to sign with the Hawks for the rest of the season at the conclusion of his second 10-day contract, Chris Haynes of ESPN.com reports.

Lee has seen a fairly significant role in nine games with the Hawks, averaging 10.4 points and 4.1 rebounds over 26.2 minutes per game. The Hawks continue to deal with a number of injuries at the wing, meaning Lee could continue to see significant run for the remainder of the season.

March 31, 2018 08:40 AM
Hawks' Damion Lee: Scores career-high 20 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee scored 20 points (8-17 FG, 2-6 3PT, 2-4 FT) to go with four rebounds, one assist and two steals in 32 minutes during Friday's 101-91 loss to Philadelphia.

Since being activated on March 13, Lee is averaging 10.4 points in nine career games, including a career-high 20 points Friday. In addition, Lee has shot in high volumes in a short amount of time, averaging 8.9 shots per game. With six games remaining, he should see plenty of opportunities as Atlanta tries to figure out which of their current pieces will fit in the future.

March 26, 2018 05:52 AM
Hawks' Damion Lee: Plays 25 minutes in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee had only four points (2-9 FG, 0-5 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist and one steal in 25 minutes during Sunday's 118-99 loss to the Rockets.

Lee started at shooting guard for the undermanned Hawks, seeing 25 minutes of court-time. The coaching staff seems to like what they see in the undrafted 25-year-old, and with the Hawks having nothing to play for, he is sure to see some more opportunities over the course of the next few games.

March 24, 2018 11:04 AM
Hawks' Damion Lee: Strong complementary effort in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee finished with 10 points (4-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt), eight rebounds, one assist and one steal across 31 minutes in Friday's 106-94 loss to the Warriors.

Fresh off signing a second 10-day contract earlier in the day, Lee went out and posted a career-high rebounding total and his second consecutive double-digit scoring effort. Tyler Dorsey is also playing well at two-guard off the bench, but head coach Mike Budenholzer appears satisfied with having the duo operate in the order in which he's currently deploying them while Kent Bazemore (knee) remains sidelined.
