Warriors' Damion Lee: Scores 24 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee racked up 24 points (10-17 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds and three assists in 34 minutes during Saturday's 118-114 win over the 76ers.

Lee has now posted back-to-back 20-plus point performances, and it seems the return of Stephen Curry -- who missed Saturday's contest due to illness -- shouldn't modify his role too much. Lee remains a reliable scorer for the Warriors, and he has posted double-digit points in 10 of his last 11 starts, averaging 16.5 points per game during that stretch.

Warriors' Damion Lee: Scores 23 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee posted 23 points (8-17 FG, 5-12 3Pt, 2-4 FT), five rebounds, three assists and one steal in 36 minutes during Thursday's 121-113 loss against the Raptors.

Lee bounced back admirably from a four-point effort against Denver earlier this week, and he has scored in double digits in nine of his last 10 contest while routinely playing more than 30 minutes per night. The Louisville product is averaging 15.7 points per game during that 10-game stretch.

Warriors' Damion Lee: Struggles from field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee racked up 15 points (5-15 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds and four assists in 34 minutes during Thursday's 116-86 loss to the Lakers.

Lee scored in double digits for the sixth straight game, and he has accomplished that feat nine times in Golden State's last 11 contests. He is finding ways to produce and could be considered as the team's main scoring threat behind Andrew Wiggins even if his shot fails to fall from time to time.

Warriors' Damion Lee: Leads squad in scoring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee put up a team-high 22 points (9-15 FG, 4-8 3Pt) to go with four rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal across 35 minutes Sunday in the Warriors' 115-101 loss to the Pelicans.

With Draymond Green (pelvis) and Marquese Chriss (calf) sitting out and Andrew Wiggins going just 3-for-16 from the field, the onus fell on Lee to handle an elevated role on offense. The swingman was able to do his part to keep Golden State competitive through three quarters before New Orleans pulled away in the final period, finishing with his eighth 20-point outing of the season. Lee has established himself as a must-roster player in 12-team leagues so far in February, averaging 15.4 points, 3.3 boards, 2.8 three-pointers, 2.8 assists and 1.4 steals in 29.8 minutes per game.

Warriors' Damion Lee: Struggles with shot in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee provided 13 points (4-12 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, three assists and two steals across 29 minutes in Thursday's 135-105 loss to the Rockets.

After posting a career-high 26 points against the Heat last week, Lee's three-point shot has flown the coop. He's now gone 3-for-15 from long range over the past two contests, which is a far cry from his five threes and 60-percent conversion rate against Miami.

Warriors' Damion Lee: Takes home career-high scoring haul
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee posted a career-high 26 points (7-12 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 7-7 FT) to go with two rebounds and one assist across 30 minutes Monday in the Warriors' 113-101 loss to the Heat.

Lee's peripheral numbers were lacking, but it's tough for fantasy managers to complain when he produces this sort of scoring and three-point volume on excellent all-around shooting. Of course, the shooting from the field and three-point range isn't sustainable for a player who has converted those shots at 41.4 percent and 36.1 percent clips for the season, respectively, but Lee should nonetheless benefit from plenty of minutes and usage while Stephen Curry (hand) is sidelined until early March. Golden State dealt away three of its key scorers in D'Angelo Russell, Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson away at the trade deadline last week and essentially only brought back one high-usage player (Andrew Wiggins) in return.

Warriors' Damion Lee: Career-high five threes in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee scored 19 points (7-15 FG, 5-9 3Pt) while adding six assists, a rebound and a steal in 34 minutes during Monday's 125-117 win over the Wizards.

After a run of weak scoring efforts in late January, Lee seems to have rediscovered his mojo, popping for double digits in three straight games while setting a new career high in made 3-pointers Monday. The 27-year-old should continue to hold down a starting spot for Golden State at least until Steph Curry (hand) gets back in the lineup.

Warriors' Damion Lee: Scores 21 points in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee had 21 points (7-16 FG, 3-9 3PT, 4-4 FT), six assists, four rebounds, one steal and one block in 37 minutes during Thursday's 134-131 loss against the Nuggets.

Lee missed the past two games due to a contract dispute, but he moved back to the starting unit after agreeing to a three-year deal with the franchise. He continued his breakout season with sixth 20-point performance of the season -- although this is the first he does it in the current month. Lee should remain a starter and one of Golden State's biggest scoring threats moving forward.

Warriors' Damion Lee: Will start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee will start Thursday's game against the Nuggets, Logan Murdock of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Fresh off signing a three-year deal with the Warriors, Lee will re-join the starting five. In his 13 starts this season, he's averaged 14.2 points, 6.9 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.2 steals across 31.8 minutes.

Warriors' Damion Lee: Inks three-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee signed a three-year contract with the Warriors on Wednesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Lee was originally signed to a two-way deal but had the contract converted after spending the maximum allotted time (45 days) with the big club. The swingman started 13 games before running out of two-way eligibility, posting averages of 14.2 points, 6.9 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.2 steals in 31.8 minutes. Lee figures to reclaim his spot in the starting lineup Thursday against Denver.

Warriors' Damion Lee: Will be available Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Warriors' Damion Lee: To miss another game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee (contract dispute) won't be available to play Tuesday against Dallas, Logan Murdock of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Lee and the Warriors are working on a multi-year deal, so Golden State has temporarily assigned the two-way player to the G League's Santa Cruz Warriors until a standard NBA contract is worked out. As Anthony Slater of The Athletic notes, Wednesday marks the deadline for teams to sign two-way players this season, so Golden State will more than likely add Lee to the 15-man roster before bringing aboard a new player to fill his two-way spot. Assuming his contract situation gets resolved Wednesday, Lee should reclaim a spot in the starting five Thursday versus Denver.

Warriors' Damion Lee: Sitting out due to contract issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee was assigned to the G League's Santa Cruz Warriors and won't be available for Sunday's game against the Grizzlies while Golden State looks to finalize a multi-year contract with the swingman, Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Lee still remains on a two-way contract, which stipulates that players can only spend up to 45 days at the NBA level. Because Lee reached his days limit in Friday's loss to the Clippers, Golden State is now looking to convert his contract to a standard NBA deal, thereby allowing him to remain with the Warriors for the rest of the season. The Warriors appeared to clear a spot for Lee on the 15-man roster by recently waiving Marquese Chriss, so it may not be long before the team has a new deal in place for the 27-year-old, who is averaging 14.2 points, 6.9 boards, 3.2 assists, 1.6 three-pointers and 1.2 steals in 31.8 minutes per game since entering the starting lineup in mid-December.

Warriors' Damion Lee: Scores 15 points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee totaled 15 points (4-13 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds, four assists and a steal in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 107-98 loss against the Bucks.

Lee followed up on the news of his standard deal by attempting a season-high eight three-point field-goal attempts, making a respectable four. However, he missed all five shots from inside the arc, resulting in an overall disappointing shooting night that has been reflective of his performances in 2020 so far. Through the Warriors' four games in 2020, the 27-year-old guard is averaging 11.8 points under an ugly 34 percent from the field.

Warriors' Damion Lee: Will get standard NBA deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee will have his two-way contract converted into a standard deal after the Warriors waived Marquese Chriss following Monday's 111-98 loss to the Kings, Nick Friedell of ESPN.com reports.

With Lee having nearly spent the maximum 45 days on the NBA roster as per the terms of his two-way deal, it was a forgone conclusion that the Warriors would look to add him to the 15-man roster, given that he's moved into a starting role for the team's past 11 games. Since Chriss was on an expiring contract and wasn't a part of the Warriors' long-term plans, he became the chosen casualty. Now that the 45-day limit is no longer a concern for Lee, look for him to stick in a high-minute role for Golden State for the rest of the season. Since cracking the starting five Dec. 15, Lee is averaging 14.5 points (on 42.2 percent shooting from the field), 7.3 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.5 triples and 1.2 steals in 31.8 minutes.

Warriors' Damion Lee: Explodes for 20 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee had 20 points (8-13 FG, 2-3 3PT, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and two assists in 40 minutes during Tuesday's 117-113 overtime loss at San Antonio.

Lee has been one of Golden State's most productive players and he extended his torrid scoring run for another night -- now he has scored 14 or more points in six straight games. He is averaging 18.3 points while shooting 48.6 percent from the field and 56.0 percent from three over that span. He will look to extend his streak for one more game Thursday at Minnesota.

Warriors' Damion Lee: Improbable play continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee ended with 18 points (7-13 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 12 rebounds and two assists in 33 minutes during Saturday's 141-121 loss to the Mavericks.

Lee had another solid outing Saturday, recording his second double-double in the last three games. In fact, over the past two weeks, Lee is the 23rd ranked player in nine-category leagues. He is obviously a must-roster player right now, although the fact he is still on a two-way contract needs to be taken into consideration. The Warriors need to make some moves to guarantee him a full-time contract. Until that happens, he should be rostered, but just be prepared for missed games moving forward.

Warriors' Damion Lee: Scores 16 points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee totaled 16 points (5-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), eight rebounds, three steals and two assists in 36 minutes during Friday's win over the Suns.

The third-year guard's scored at least 14 points in each of his past four games and six of his past seven. Lee's impressed in his scoring methods as he's paired 40 percent shooting from behind the arc during that span with an average of 4.6 free throw attempts per game. He's worked himself into the regular starting five for the Warriors, who will presumably opt to keep the 27-year-old in the first unit for as long as they can sustain team-wide success.

December 25, 2019 10:28 PM
Warriors' Damion Lee: Grabs 15 rebounds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee had 22 points (5-9 FG, 2-2 3PT, 10-10 FT), 15 rebounds, four assists and three steals in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 116-104 win over the Rockets.

Lee had a season-high mark for rebounds, and he also scored in double digits for the fourth time in his five contests since returning to the starting unit. Lee should remain as a scoring threat from the backcourt during Friday's matchup against the Suns.

December 24, 2019 07:32 AM
Warriors' Damion Lee: Scores 14 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee had 14 points (4-9 FG, 2-5 3PT, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and one steal in 28 minutes during Monday's 113-104 win over the Timberwolves.

Lee has started each of Golden State's last four games, but he has struggled with consistency aside from the rebounding department -- he has grabbed at least five boards in each of those four starts. He should remain a member of the first unit Wednesday against the Rockets.
