Damion Lee (fractured right hand) is out at least the next two weeks after getting an MRI on Tuesday.
The Warriors continue to take a beating up and down their roster. Alec Burks and Jordan Poole will see extra minutes while Lee is out.

Alec Burks had his best game of the season on Wednesday, ending with 28 points, eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.
Burks led the team in field goal attempts in this one, finishing the night going 10-of-18 from the floor. It's great to see Burks have a well rounded game but this likely won't be the norm as these are season-highs in points, rebounds, steals and threes. With Jordan Poole struggling with his shot again (2-for-11) and Damion Lee not doing much better (3-for-14), Burks was able to pick up the slack. Burks isn't someone that we are rushing to the waivers to pick up after this performance and he will likely have tamer nights when the team is healthy again.

The Warriors are unable to convert Damion Lee and Ky Bowman's two-way deals to standard contracts right now because of the hard cap.
As it stands right now, both Lee and Bowman will have up to 45 days of service time under their current agreements. Circumstances could change, however, if the Warriors can shed some salary. Given the injuries that have decimated the roster, and the excellent play from each so far, it is plausible that the Warriors will find a way to make this work out before their service time expires.

Both Damion Lee and Alec Burks played just under 30 minutes off the bench on Monday, chipping in 16 and 13 points, respectively.
Burks is coming off a sprained right ankle injury and was moving well despite shooting a poor 4-of-12 from the field. Lee, on the other hand, did half his damage from the line (8-of-9 shooting). Both players project to be owned in 16-team leagues or deeper as the Warriors' key players get back from their various injuries.

Damion Lee led all Warriors reserves on Friday with 16 points on 6-of-9 shooting (two 3s), four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 25 minutes.
Jordan Poole (20 points, 29 minutes) got the start, but don't sleep on Lee as someone who'll benefit from the 3-month absence of Stephen Curry (broken hand). Lee is worth an add in deep leagues for the aforementioned upside.

Damion Lee stayed hot on Monday, scoring 23 points on 8-of-14 shooting with 11 boards, two assists and four triples.
Lee had 18 in the last outing and scored in double figures again as the best player off the Warriors' bench. He's worth a look if you're in need of triples, but don't expect the shooting to look this nice next time out.

Damion Lee scored 18 points on 7-of-11 shooting with nine boards, two assists and three steals in Monday's preseason game against the Lakers.
Lee had a solid game and should find himself into some rotational minutes, but Jordan Poole (eight points, one rebound, three assists and two triples) is a more intriguing prospect while both are irrelevant in fantasy.

The Warriors are bringing back Damion Lee on a two-way deal.
Lee has not been much of a fantasy asset so far and despite the Warriors' injury woes, he does not figure to make much of an impact on the box scores. Feel free to leave him undrafted in every format.

Damion Lee scored 20 points on 7-of-13 from the floor with four threes, seven rebounds, one assist and one steal in 27 minutes in a 112-103 road win on Tuesday vs. the Pelicans.
Lee was the beneficiary of some significant rest among his teammates. Though the names will change slightly, Lee should find himself in a similar position in Wednesday's finale.

Damion Lee will be with Warriors for Thursday's game against Lakers.
Lee may get a handful of minutes with Shaun Livingston resting, but he's far off the fantasy radar.

Damion Lee rose above the rest with so many Warriors ailing on Saturday night, logging 26 minutes and scoring 12 points to go with four 3-pointers and two steals.
Lee also played in crunch time with DeMarcus Cousins repeatedly getting victimized on defense. Klay Thompson should be back for the next one, and Alfonzo McKinnie is still ahead of Lee on the depth chart when healthy, but if the stars ever align this way again you know that Lee's a dart throw for triples. Before tonight, the last time Lee played more than 20 minutes was back on November 23.

Damion Lee (stomach virus) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Magic.
Lee popped off for 13 points in 19 minutes over a week ago but he hasn't done much since. He is averaging 20.4 minutes per game in his last five and that should continue with Alfonzo McKinnie (foot) out, but he does not produce enough to be fantasy relevant.

Damion Lee got dusted off for 19 minutes on Saturday and delivered 13 points, four rebounds, two steals and three triples in a loss to the Mavs.
All of those are season-highs for Lee. He might be able to hold this kind of production while Alfonzo McKinnie is out but this isn't necessarily a performance to chase.

The Warriors have recalled Damion Lee from the Santa Cruz Warriors – the team's G-League affiliate.
This was only a corresponding move to Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston being out for Monday's game. There are no fantasy implications.

Chris B. Haynes of ESPN is reporting the Warriors have reached an agreement with free agent guard Damion Lee.
Lee is engaged to Stephen Curry's sister Sydel, so there is some connection there. He primarily played last season for the Warriors' G-league team before being called up by the Hawks. His 6-foot 6-inch frame gives the Warriors the size they prefer on the wing. Lee posted 10.7 points per game in 26.9 minutes on average with the Hawks in 15 games last season.
