I reported on December 10 that Bogut was dealing with tendonitis in his knee and was questionable for the game against the Rockets. As for Lee, I noted on December 7 that Lee, who has missed all but one quarter this season, could return sometime this week.

Diamond Leung, who covers the Warriors for for Bay Area News Group, tweeted the following on Bogut. added that Bogut will be re-evaluated on Monday and Lee should be back soon. Bogut is likely to be considered questionable for Tuesday's game. Expect Festus Ezeli and Marreese Speights to continue to see more action until Lee and Bogut return.

The veteran has played for the Bucks and Warriors and has career averages of 11.4 points and 9.3 rebounds in 527 games.  

Lee, in his 10th NBA season, scored six points on 3-of-4 shooting in seven minutes of action. Last season, he averaged 18.2 points and 9.3 rebounds per game. Lee has played for the Knicks and Warriors and has career averages of 15.2 points, 9.8 rebounds and 2.4 assists, in 647 games.
