Lee (neck) will sit out Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Hawks, Steve Popper of Newsday Sports reports.
Lee missed the entire preseason with a neck injury and head coach David Fizdale wants to get him some more run during practice work before pushing his guard into live game action. Look for Lee to potentially increase his activity in the coming few days, but considering the Knicks are scheduled for a back-to-back set Friday and Saturday, there's certainly a chance Lee misses another contest if his conditioning isn't quite in order.

After reported surfaced Sunday that Lee was "good to go" for the start of the regular season, head coach David Fizdale and the Knicks are now erring on the side of caution with the veteran. Fizdale said Monday that he would like to see Lee practice more before playing him in games to ensure his body is properly conditioned after missing the entire preseason. With Lee now likely out, Mario Hezonja and Ron Baker are both in line to see more minutes off the bench.

After dealing with a strained neck basically all preseason long, Lee finally stated that he is good to go for Wednesday's opener against Atlanta. The Western Kentucky product averaged 12.0 points and 2.9 rebounds over 76 games in 2017-18, but may take on a lesser role during the upcoming campaign with Tim Hardaway Jr. and rookie first-round pick Kevin Knox likely viewed as higher-priority options for minutes on the wing.
