In a shocking turn of events, Golden State Warriors forward David Lee dressed for last night's Game 6 against the Denver Nuggets. Lee -- who had reportedly been shut down for the season with a torn hip flexor -- saw one minute of action, as the Warriors eliminated the Nuggets and advanced to the second round of the playoffs.
Lee didn't participate in pregame warmups, but then he sprinted out of the tunnel behind guard Stephen Curry roughly 15 minutes before tipoff. Lee entered the game with just over two minutes remaining in the first quarter, grabbing one rebound and missing a shot during his minute of action.
The Warriors had seemed as if they expected Lee to miss the remainder of the playoffs after he was diagnosed with a torn right hip flexor. He suffered the injury during the series opener when he was fouled by JaVale McGee. After the contact, Lee went to the floor, landing on his hip. He made two free throws before exiting, and that was the last time he saw the court until last night.
If Lee is able to return and log significant minutes, it will be huge news for Golden State, as the Western Conference is basically wide open following Russell Westbrook's injury.
