David Lee (hamstring) is expected to play for the Warriors on Friday.
We've heard this before and then Lee hasn't played, so we'll hold our enthusiasm for a few until we get actual confirmation. Lee has missed the last seven games with this current hamstring problem and has been reported to be close, but you may want to go with someone else in your lineup as even if he does start, Draymond Green could poach a number of minutes still.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Whiteside went to the bench with an ankle injury.
Whiteside injured the ankle or foot on a rebound and came up limping a bit, so with him just recently coming back from a hip injury it's likely a precautionary move to take him out. He was effective in Sunday's loss however with a double-double off the bench behind starter A'mare Stoudemire. More updates to follow once the extent of the injury and timeframe are better known.
