OAKLAND – Having missed three of the past five games, including the last two, Warriors power forward David Lee said he'll attempt to play in Monday night's game against the 76ers.

Lee is dealing with a pair nagging injuries, one to his left shoulder and the other to his left hip. He did not travel with the Warriors to Phoenix over the weekend but participated in the Monday morning shootaround.

After working out three hours prior to the game, he decided to give it a go.

One of the reasons Lee cited for his decision is the absence of centers Andrew Bogut and Jermaine O'Neal.

Bogut, suffering from shoulder inflammation, will miss his third consecutive game. O'Neal, who returned last week after missing two months due to wrist surgery and rehabilitation, is dealing with soreness in his right wrist and is not expected to play tonight.
