All-Star forward David Lee in uniform for Warriors in Game 6 vs. Denver despite hip injury

All-Star forward David Lee is in uniform for the Golden State Warriors in Game 6 against the Denver Nuggets on Thursday night after not dressing the past four games because of a hip injury.

Lee didn't participate in early pregame warm-ups, then sprinted out of the tunnel second behind Stephen Curry about 15 minutes before Game 6, ripping off his warm-up jacket and getting a rousing ovation from fans when he was shown on the videoboard.

Lee tore his right hip flexor in the fourth quarter of Game 1, when he banged into Denver's JaVale McGee on a drive and landed on his side. The Warriors had said he had a season-ending tear of his right hip flexor.
