Malcolm Lee was waived by the Wizards on Monday.

Lee has been dealing with knee and hip injuries and it's unclear if he will pick up with another team.

Malcolm Lee has been traded to the Wizards.

He has been hurt and off the court for a while. This move was just a formality and Lee has no fantasy value.

Malcolm Lee had right hip and right knee surgeries in January and is still rehabbing the injuries, leaving his future with the Suns in question.

His right quadriceps still has not strengthened enough for him to be cleared for full basketball contact and his quadriceps will be remeasured Friday. "I thought I’d be back by now," Lee said. "It’s definitely frustrating because going into the summer, I assumed I’d be back by training camp. It just sucks that I wasn’t."

Malcolm Lee (knee and hip surgery) will have restrictions during the Suns' training camp.

It's encouraging that he's participating at all, nine months after having multiple surgeries, but it's unclear when he'll be fully cleared for basketball activities.

Malcolm Lee (knee) believes he'll be ready for training camp.

The Suns agreed to take on Lee's fully guaranteed $884K salary this season so they could move up and draft Archie Goodwin at No. 29 overall. Lee has had two knee surgeries and a hip surgery since breaking into the league in 2011. He's a poor bet to crack the rotation this season.

Malcolm Lee was traded from the Wolves to the Golden State Warriors in a draft-day deal on Thursday and was later traded to the Phoenix Suns.

He was pretty much just a throw-in player to and from the Warriors in these deal. When the Wolves were decimated in the backcourt, Lee started 12 games and scored 5.4 points. He had surgery on his knee and hip in January and is a longshot to be a contributor for the Suns -- the team in which he started his career.

After undergoing knee surgery Monday, Malcolm Lee had an operation on his hip on Wednesday.

The hip procedure completes a surgery doubleheader for Lee, who faces a very lengthy and difficult rehab to get back on the court. Needless to say, he's out for the season.

Malcolm Lee underwent successful knee surgery on Monday, and he will undergo hip surgery on Wednesday.

Lee faces a lengthy rehab process to recover from his injuries and is out for the season.

Malcolm Lee will also have hip surgery as well as surgery on his knee.

He was ruled out for the season earlier this week. Lee will undergo surgery on cartilage on his right knee on Monday, then have surgery on his right hip on Wednesday. It'll be a tough rehab for him with both injuries coming to his right side.

Malcolm Lee will have knee surgery and is out for the season.

Lee was out for the year before his decision to have surgery, but this makes it official. No date has been set yet for his procedure.

Malcolm Lee (knee) is out for the remainder of the season, a team source told Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN.

Lee may need microfracture surgery on the knee, and regardless of whether or not that's the final outcome, he will not play again this season. With Josh Howard (torn ACL) also done for the season, the Timberwolves will look for help on the free agent market, but this also means Brandon Roy (when healthy), J.J. Barea, Luke Ridnour and Alexey Shved will have less competition for minutes.

Malcolm Lee (knee) may need season-ending micro-fracture surgery.

With the loss of Lee and Josh Howard (torn ACL), the Timberwolves are in need of SG/SF depth. Michael Redd (who averaged 8.2 points per game last year for Phoenix) and Chris Douglas-Roberts are two names that beat writer Jerry Zgoda suggests as possibilities.

Malcolm Lee is out indefinitely after suffering what the team termed a "chrondal" injury in his right knee.

The Timberwolves said they will evaluate the injury before determining the next step, but this isn't the first time Lee has dealt with knee issues. According to beat writer Jerry Zgoda, the chrondal diagnosis is a degenerative condition involving cartilage damage. We're not doctors, but given the issues of his teammate Brandon Roy, this diagnosis doesn't bode well for Lee's long-term prospects.

Malcolm Lee (knee) did not practice on Thursday and will not play on Friday.

This should open more minutes for Alexey Shved, who started the second half of Wednesday's game in place of Lee. J.J. Barea and Luke Ridnour will see a small bump in time as well.
