OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Golden State Warriors power forward David Lee says he has damage in the nerve that connects from his back to his right hamstring but hopes to be back for the playoffs - if not sooner.
Lee participated in some of Wednesday's light practice, working up a sweat on his gray shirt before shooting free throws during the portion open to reporters. He has missed six straight games and is expected to sit out again Thursday night against Denver.
After hosting the Nuggets, the Warriors have only four games left in the regular season.
Lee says there is no timetable for his return from the injury, which the team initially called a strained hamstring. Lee said he continued to feel pain in his leg last week and two MRI exams showed the irritated nerve.
