Sources: Warriors' Lee in COVID protocol; says he got vaccine

The Warriors will be without one of their top reserves for up to two weeks, as Damion Lee has entered the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols, NBC Sports Bay Area's Monte Poole confirmed Thursday.

The Athletic's Anthony Slater first reported Lee would be entering the protocol and is expected to miss 10-14 days, which could ostensibly keep him out for the Warriors' next five to seven games.

Lee seemingly confirmed the news on Twitter, and noted that he did receive the vaccine and had been practicing proper safety protocols.

Lee has averaged 6.5 points and 3.2 rebounds per game this season in 18.9 minutes, and has shot just under 40 percent from 3-point range (39.7 percent).

With Juan Toscano-Anderson still in the NBA's concussion protocol due to his nasty fall in Saturday's loss to the Boston Celtics, this would limit the Warriors' wing depth even more down the stretch of the regular season, when every game will carry heightened importance for a team hoping to stay in the playoff chase.
