Warriors' injury crisis deepens as Damion Lee fractures hand
The Golden State Warriors have suffered another injury blow after it was confirmed guard Damion Lee has sustained a hand fracture.
Six-time NBA champions the Warriors are without a host of players due to injury, with Steph Curry and Klay Thompson headlining the list of absentees.
While Thompson has been out since tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in June, two-time NBA MVP Curry broke his left hand on October 30 during a defeat to the Phoenix Suns.
Curry is set to undergo surgery, but claimed on Monday he expects to return before the end of the season.
