It appears as if David Lee's hip has healed.

The Warriors' All-Star power forward tore his right hip flexor in Game 1 of the team's opening round playoff series against the Denver Nuggets on April 20. He had surgery to repair the tear on May 30. And 68 days later, he was captured in a JR Sports Brief dominating a pick-up game at Rucker Park -- the famed Harlem neighborhood basketball court in the New York City borough of Manhattan.

Check out the video of Lee and Warriors teammate Kent Bazemore showing how it's done:

Lee, 30, is under contract for the next three seasons and set to make $13.878 million next year. Reports surfaced in early July that the Warriors were exploring trading him, but nothing came of the rumors and Lee insisted the team intended keep him.
