While LaMarcus Aldridge missed his second straight game with a heart ailment on Monday night, David Lee stepped in as the starter at power forward and scored 14 points on 7-of-8 shooting to help the Spurs defeat the Hawks.
Lee is averaging 9.1 points and 5.8 rebounds over his last eight games, but has been filling in nicely with Aldridge out. Aldridge had tests conducted on Monday and is expected to work with team doctors to map out a plan for the future. If Aldridge winds up missing a significant amount of time, you can expect Lee’s production to trend upward.
