DENVER (AP) - All-Star forward David Lee of the Warriors is out for the season after injuring his hip during Golden State's 97-95 loss to Denver in Game 1 of their opening playoff series.
MRI results were announced Sunday, showing a torn right hip flexor.
The injury leaves the Warriors without a key producer down low. Lee led the NBA in double-doubles with 56 this season. He averaged 18.5 points, 11.2 rebounds and 3.5 assists.
Lee banged into JaVale McGee on a drive in the fourth quarter Saturday and winced as he landed on his right hip. After gathering himself, he shot both free throws, then struggled to run down court.
Lee finished with 10 points and 14 rebounds in his first playoff game in eight NBA seasons. Game 2 is Tuesday in Denver.
