David Lee is looking to contribute to the Spurs in whatever way he can.
Lee is joining the Spurs on a two-year deal for the veteran minimum and knows he'll be more of a role player with San Antonio. "I’m not coming here saying, ‘LaMarcus better watch out, I’m taking his spot,’" Lee said. "Those two guys [Aldridge and Gasol] are established All-Stars. I want to come in here and whatever minutes I’m given, I’m going to play them with energy." Lee won't be worth much in standard fantasy leagues, but he could have some good DFS nights when the Spurs rest players. Sep 29 - 9:58 AM

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

The Spurs officially announced the signing of David Lee to a two-year deal for the veteran's minimum on Tuesday.

Lee will more or less be used in the same way David West was last year, meaning he's off the radar in standard leagues. He could, however, be worth a look in DFS on the nights Greg Popovich decides to rest some of his guys.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee has reportedly agreed to a two-year, $3.2 million deal with the Spurs, with the second year being a player option.

Lee will earn limited minutes in San Antonio backing up both LaMarcus Aldridge and Pau Gasol, which is far from ideal from a fantasy perspective. Lee's days of being a relevant name in standard leagues are behind him.

David Lee told TMZ that he's open to returning to the Warriors.

TMZ asked Lee a few questions as he was out in Malibu and he responded with "we'll see what happens" when asked about taking a pay cut to return to the Warriors. We'll have to wait and see if Lee takes less money to go back to Golden State, but he wouldn't have much fantasy value as a bench player for the Dubs.

The Mavericks are hoping David Lee will help them lure free agents this summer.

While Lee doesn't seem like a big draw, the Mavs are hoping his experience in Dallas helps them lure other veterans. "We wouldn’t have got to the playoffs without David Lee, and the word spreads," head coach Rick Carlisle said. "You know, veterans like him know other veterans, and the word gets out that Dallas is a high-level organization. And we take great pride in that." Lee may not help the Mavs land a big-name free agent, but we'll keep an eye on who the veteran helps the team reel in.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee (foot) is in a walking boot and has been ruled out of the remainder of the first round.

Dallas is down 3-1 vs. OKC, and there is no reason for Lee to continue to push through an obvious issue that is limiting his ability to contribute. Given Salah Mejri's (hip) status is up in the air, the options include giving Zaza Pachulia an extended role or going small with Dirk Nowitzki in the middle while deploying some unorthodox lineups. Expect Justin Anderson's role to increase for however long Dallas is able to stay alive.
David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee (foot) is probable for Monday's game vs. the Thunder.

He's been limited for a while now and is only going to see minutes in the teens if he plays, so fantasy owners can continue to ignore him.
Apr 24 - 4:22 PM
David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee played 16 minutes in a loss to the Thunder on Saturday with six points, four rebounds, one assist and five fouls.

This was pretty much the expectation for Lee in this game. However, the loss of Salah Mejri (hip) suggests he might have to get over the 20-minute mark in Game 5. He still has a slight tear in his plantar fascia, so it'll be really tough to trust him even as a punt for DFS.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee (foot) will get another pain-killing injection and will play in Game 4 on Saturday.

He played just 17 minutes on Thursday and is likely looking at a similar workload. Lee being active basically makes it a three-way split at center, which means DFS players should steer clear of this position battle.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee (foot) is questionable to play against the Thunder on Saturday.

He was a surprise return for Game 3, playing 17 minutes with six points and two boards. Lee will certainly be limited again, but his presence basically negates the Dallas center position for fantasy value tonight.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee (foot) returned from a two-game absence on Thursday vs. the Thunder, scoring six points on 3-of-3 shooting with two rebounds in 17 minutes.

He deserves a lot of credit for playing through the injury, but he's likely going to be limited for the rest of the series. There's not much fantasy value here.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee (foot) will play in Game 3 against the Thunder on Thursday.

Lee has spent the first two games of the series on the sidelines, but he'll give the Mavs what he can for Game 3. It's worth noting that Lee is going to get a pain-killing injection prior to the game in order to get out there, so he's clearly at less than 100 percent, and is not an ideal DFS target. Salah Mejri will likely lose some minutes tonight with Lee back on the active roster.
Apr 21 - 6:09 PM
David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee (foot) is listed as questionable for Game 3 against the Thunder on Thursday.

Lee is dealing with a partial tear in his plantar fascia and was limited at practice on Wednesday, so it would be a surprise to see him suit up on Thursday night. Check back for updates, but Salah Mejri stands to benefit the most from Lee's potential absence.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee (foot) is doubtful to play in Thursday's Game 3 against the Thunder.

He was doing some on-court work, but Lee does have a partial tear in his plantar fascia. It would be a surprise to see him play in this series, which means we might see more of Salah Mejri.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee (foot) did some on-court work on Wednesday.

He's improving and the Mavs are at least trying to get him on the court for Game 3. It's not going to be easy for Lee, who was diagnosed with a partial tear in his plantar fascia. Salah Mejri was terrific in Game 2, so there may not be a big need to rush Lee back. Mejri would be on the map as a punt in DFS for the three-game night.
