Courtney Lee wants to play against his old team. He missed the game in Orlando and he's not about to miss this one. So when he was asked if he was playing Friday, his response was simple. "It’s still a very good chance. Very good chance." But in another part of the gym, Kiki Vandeweghe was saying something else, calling Lee's return "doubtful". Meanwhile, Trenton Hassell will continue to start at small forward over Terrence Williams, Chris Douglas-Roberts and Jarvis Hayes, who seems mystified about why he's lost his job.
Lee averaged 15.5 ppg in February, shooting 40.9% from deep, 48.6% overall and 92.9% from the foul stripe. It was the best month, statistically, in his career.
