David Lee strained his hip flexor in the first round and was out, except for a couple Willis Reed-like appearances. He wasn’t moving very well.

But he should be ready to go for training camp after getting surgery on his hip on Wednesday. Lee made the surgery public by posting the picture you see to your right on Instagram.

Lee had a huge season for Golden State. He averaged 18.5 points and 11.2 rebounds per game during and was selected as the team’s first All-Star since 1997. He was a key part of their best rotations all season, although without him they went small and, thanks to a healthy Andrew Bogut, got past Denver in the playoffs then pushed San Antonio to six games.

Still, if the Warriors are going to take a step forward next year Lee will need to be part of it.

    I really want to see a healthy Lee and Bogut playing next to each other. Both are excellent passing big men. They just need court time to gel together. Bogut might not have the scoring punch like how he had prior to his elbow injury, but what he lacks, he makes up on rebounding, defensive presence and his desire to win. The true center that the Warriors have lacked for decades. Since the mid 80’s when I started watching the Warriors.
    Would love to get rid of Biedrins or Jefferson’s contract in order to get both Jack and Landry back. But no team in their right mind would trade for those two for that salary cap hit.
