Warriors' Lee cleared to play
Golden State Warriors forward David Lee has been cleared to rejoin the team after two elbow operations.
The Warriors said Lee worked out in Oakland on Friday and was examined by the team physician.
He was set to fly to Minneapolis, where the Warriors face the Timberwolves on Saturday. It has not been decided if Lee will play.
Lee initially had surgery Nov. 12, two days after he cut the inside of his left elbow on the mouth of New York's Wilson Chandler. A fragment of Chandler's tooth stayed in Lee's arm. After Lee's elbow swelled and bled, he was given antibiotics in an emergency room and needed more surgery.
He is averaging 14.3 points and 11.3 rebounds for Golden State, which acquired him in July from the Knicks.
