OAKLAND – Add another missing man to the Warriors roster for Saturday night's game against the Nets, as two hours before tipoff, coach Mark Jackson declared power forward David Lee would not be in the lineup.
The coach said Lee, the team's second-leading scorer at 19.1 points per game, is suffering from stomach flu. He arrived at the team facility for the morning shootaround, Jackson said, but was sent home shortly afterward.
Lee joins starting center Andrew Bogut, who will miss his seventh consecutive game after sustaining a bone bruise in his left shoulder that resulted in inflammation, then having a negative reaction to the cortisone shot on Feb. 12.
While Jermaine O'Neal will continue to start in place Bogut, Jackson did not say who would start at power forward, with Draymond Green and Harrison Barnes being the likely candidates. Both can expect increased playing time.
