The Spurs have set no timetable for Lee’s recovery. Lee has a player option that is worth about $3.2 million this upcoming summer. It is unclear if he plans to return to San Antonio.
UPDATE: Pop has released that the injury to David Lee is not as serious as the team initially believed.
Some good news on David Lee. Won’t play tomorrow but injury doesn’t appear as serious as first believed, Pop says
