David Lee leaves game 1 with “probable right hip flexor strain”

Denver Nuggets Kosta Koufos defends Golden State Warriors David Lee in the third quarter of their NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in Denver

The first playoff game of David Lee‘s career didn’t exactly finish the way he would have hoped.

When driving to the rim in the early part of the 4th quarter, Lee drew a foul and when landing instantly grabbed his right quadricep area. Early reports are that he has a right hip injury:

Reports from the sideline stated that Lee heard a pop or a tear in his right quad/hip area. Obviously that sounds bad, but we’ll have to wait on the results of his X-rays before we know more.

Lee was able to get up and attempt his free throws, but was subbed out after those attempts and taken straight to the locker room, needing assistance to get off the court. Lee finished the game with 10 points and 14 rebounds.

    If he’s out even 2 games it could ruin GSWs chances
