Lee out, Faried in
The Golden State Warriors got a double dose of bad news Sunday. They learned All-Star forward David Lee has torn his right hip flexor, as feared, ending his season. So they’ll have to continue their playoff series against Denver without the NBA’s leader in double-doubles. Making that task all the more difficult will be the return of the Nuggets’ top rebounder and energizer, Kenneth Faried, from an injured ankle. Faried sat out the opener Saturday, when the Nuggets edged Golden State 97-95 despite getting outrebounded 55-45. Game 2 is Tuesday night in Denver.
