Lee will miss the Warriors game on Saturday night against the Milwaukee Bucks due to a knee injury, although it looks like it will only be for one game, per Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle:

---End of update---

It's a big loss for the Warriors if he has to miss any time at all. The team currently owns a 35-27 record and sits sixth in the Western Conference, four games ahead of the ninth-place Los Angeles Lakers.

Lee has been a big part of his team's success. He is averaging nearly 19 points and 11 rebounds per game this season. The forward is also averaging a career-high 3.8 assists per game.

Entering Friday's game, the 29-year-old had eight straight double-doubles. He was well on his way to adding to that streak while going 4-of-4 from the floor for 10 points and grabbing two rebounds.

The All-Star is the team's second-leading scorer and its top rebounder.

If he misses any games, it will force guys like Harrison Barnes and Andrew Bogut to step up their games. Carl Landry, who is averaging 11 points and six rebounds per game, will be forced to play more minutes while Lee is out.

After Lee went out, the Rockets outscored the Warriors 29-18 in the second quarter to take a 50-48 lead at the half.
